Hi all. I think that was the longest I’ve been away from WP. Did you guys miss me? Maybe you didn’t even notice I’ve been MIA, lol. The last time I wrote a journal entry was last Thursday. I didn’t write one day this week and I never got to reading any posts of yours either. 😦 I will get to reading all of your posts that I missed but the posts that I missed in my schedule will be scheduled into different months. Except for today’s post…which was supposed to be My Favorite Thanksgiving Foods.
I’ll just tell you that my favorites are mashed potatoes and cornbread stuffing. Lol. If I had made the post, I was also going to tell you some of my favorite Cambodian/Khmer dishes that are often included on Thanksgiving but never mind. 😛
Today, boyfriend and I are going to Main Street Station Casino for their Thanksgiving Dinner Buffet. He just went to the store right now to grab some White Owls. We need to go to the dispensary and get a little weed even though we really don’t have much money to spare. My work is closed tonight–the only day out of the 365 in the year! It’s been worse than slow there anyways.
I still haven’t gotten my period. Maybe because I have been drinking so heavily? I hope I can have it after this weekend… Last Friday and Saturday at work was pretty lame but still worth going. I didn’t do much before work on those days except get ready for it and go…I haven’t been reading or writing anything. The Bookseller automatically checked itself back into the library before I could finish it so I had to put it on hold again…now, I have like 5 other books that I’ve been waiting for checked out to me. But, boyfriend and I have been spending all of our time watching American Horror Story. We’re almost through the Roanoke season. When I’m not watching that I’m napping, eating, or watching Young & Hungry.
On Friday, boyfriend had to work so I walked to the Ninja Teriyaki restaurant down the street for dinner. I tried their tiny bowl of tonkotsu ramen. I was not a fan.
On Saturday when he was at work, I just microwaved a frozen meal for dinner. I don’t even remember which one or what kind but it was the lowest amount of sodium in a frozen meal ever, and it was pretty good. I wish I could remember the name of it but it’s not coming back to me. When I see it in the store I’ll def know and try to remember to tell you guys about it. 😛
Boyfriend’s dad, step-mom, aunt, and uncle came to visit us. They got here on Sunday night. We laid around in the morning and boyfriend made dinner. We ate and then they got here just right after we finished up. We met them at the Four Queens Casino downtown Las Vegas where they were all staying. We met his dad and step-mom in their room which was so eerie and awkward. They know I’m a dancer but love to ask me what I do anyways (over and over) with disapproving eyes.
Whatever. My co-workers told me I should have never told them what I do for a living in the first place but I hate lying. It’s stupid. I want to be accepted for me. It’s a JOB.
We met his aunt at the reception desk after a little chit chat but his uncle had already headed off to the the McDonald’s across the street since he was starving lol. We walked over there and everyone else decided to order from there too. I don’t prefer to eat McDonald’s ever but I didn’t want to sit and stare so I had some fries lol. His aunt and uncle were a bit cooler–they didn’t even ask me what I do for a living once because (unlike his dad and step-mom) they remembered I already told them that information 3 years ago when I first met them.
It is now 3:11p and I have to save this as a draft because I’ve got to get ready for dinner and the dispensary is closing early today. There’s gonna be a huge line for the buffet that I am NOT excited about it.
I’m baaaack! It is now 7:56p!!
Wow, the line was so long and we had the most obnoxious family waiting in front of us which made it so much worse. The food was satisfactory.
Anyways, I was just gonna sum up my week and end this post.
On Sunday, after we all got done eating at McDonald’s we hit the Fremont Street Experience for a wild night. We had a lot of drinks and a lot of fun. The next day I was so hungover–I threw up like 4 times and slept the rest of the day.
We went to Viet Noodle Bar because I wanted some chicken congee for my tummy.
It helped a lot. Then, I was craving this dessert that I used to get when I was a kid and thought I could find it at this little dessert shop called Bambu. I didn’t find exactly what I was looking for but it was close enough, I guess…I prob shouldn’t have had dessert anyways because my body had had enough sugar from the margaritas the night before and it made my headache worse.
I went home and fell asleep then boyfriend went out with his family for a few hours. I’m a bitch because I asked him to come home when he hadn’t planned on it yet but it was getting late and I hate to be home alone at night.
On Tuesday, we wanted to go out to eat with his family but they ate without us because as you probably already know; we are late risers compared to your average joe lol…so boyfriend and I just went to this pub in DT Las Vegas together. It was called The Smashed Pig Gastropub. It was delicious.
I went to work around 8p so that boyfriend could go hang out with his family. I only stayed until about midnight when I texted boyfriend to come pick me up…mostly because I was nervous he would drink too much and I knew he would still drive to pick me up no matter how drunk he got. He picked me up and we went back to hang out with his family on Fremont for a bit again. They closed down Fremont’s outside bars at 1a that night because of how slow it was. We walked to this fun little bar I had never been to before called Hogs & Heifers. We played pool and drank a lot lol. But not too much this night because I was not trying to be hung over again!
Wednesday morning, they left, so Tuesday was the last night we saw them. We didn’t do much…we were excited to finally have a normal semi-off day. Boyfriend made our last meal that we have groceries for at home and it was so good…can’t wait to share it with you guys in my next Recipe Reviews. Now, we need to go grocery shopping again.
Today…I woke up, laid around, went to the dispensary, went to the buffet…and now I’m home. We’re gonna watch American Horror Story when I’m done with this.
I know it’s only been a week but I feel like I haven’t written in forever. I will be getting back on schedule now, though. (If you even pay attention to my blog schedule lol.)
I really hope you all had a wonderful week! ❤ and Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate it!
It is now 8:21p.
