Hi friends, I hope you are all well, safe, and healthy. I do apologize for not returning with a Journal Entry on Thursday night like I said I would but, for 1) I am still upset about the photos I deleted, for 2) this virus is stressin’ me (and the whole world) OUT, and 3) I just wanted to stick to my Blogging Schedule for once (probably so it feels like I am in control *somewhere*) so, I came back today instead. 😛
Last time I wrote, I left off on Monday. Probably one of the last normal days of grocery shopping we’ll have for awhile. We went to Sprouts and got our 3 meals for the week. Everything was in stock and the lines weren’t as long as the entire length of the store.
Boyfriend made us a meatball veggie soup that turned out alright. I spent my entire day playing Sims 4, smokin’ weed, and eating.
Tuesday was Rossy and her family’s last day in Vegas. They had to be at the airport around the same time I had to attend my musical of the month so, for dinner, we all met up at Big Chicken, where we ate together on their last visit (in November).
I had the Uncle Jerome sandwich which had the Nashville hot chicken breast with lettuce, mayo, and pickles and boyfriend had the Shaq Attack with pepper jack cheese, jalapeño slaw, and spicy chipotle BBQ sauce. I love that they use Brioche buns even though they’re a bit tough on the tummy because of the dairy– they are so dang worth it and go soooo well with the chicken!
We also had an order of the regular fries, sweet potato waffle fries, and a 3-pc of the chicken tenders, lol. My sandwich was definitely the best part though.
The boys played a bit of Foosball right next to our table while Rossy and I sat and chatted. 🙂 We had such an absolutely lovely time all together again. ❤ I wish with all my heart we could live closer to them.
Afterwards, we made one last stop to Dunkin’ Donuts. Their son, Ciel, was so cute and asking if they could follow/continue to hang out with us! I was so in love, hehe. ❤ He was seriously cracking me up while we were walking in, too. Saying, “haha that’s so funny” and doing this fake laugh that made me real laugh, over and over again!
I don’t know what the heck I ordered, honestly. It was their frozen coffee with 3 shots of espresso mixed in but, it just tasted like a burnt coffee, melted slushie. 😛
Boyfriend got 4 shots of espresso with a flavor shot of their toasted almond, that tasted more like hazelnut but was still a lot better than what I had… he also had one of their Boston Cream donuts and exclaimed, “that’s one mediocre donut” when he took his first bite. I ate one of Ciel’s chocolate munchkins (donut holes) and wasn’t very impressed. I don’t think any of us were!
When we parted ways, boyfriend and I made a stop at the dispensary and then, he dropped me off at The Smith Center to see Once On This Island!
I am devastated that I lost my photos from me actually being there. This has never happened for any of the previous 18 (!!) shows I’ve been to. I feel like my tradition has been broken even though I can, obviously, continue it at my next one. Although, The Smith Center has stopped all productions until March 31st… at least, that’s the date FOR NOW. I’m worried they won’t be back open for my showing of Mean Girls in the beginning of April.
UUUUUGH. Corona Virus go away!!!! Please!!!!
Sorry, okay, anyways.
RIGHT as I was walking up the stairs to get up to the balcony floor, where my seat is… I felt my Aunt Flo come for her monthly visit.
I heard of this happening to many women but, I was not prepared. I usually get mine just a tiny wee bit when it first appears and I find out when I’m using the bathroom, at home, in the morning or at night. It never comes rushing out of nowhere like that. So, in a panic, I called boyfriend to bring me my supplies BUT, then, I realized public restrooms are usually equipped with those kinds of things. I got what I needed for 50 cents and called the emergency off. Woohoo!
Sadly, the crowd was empty as ever! I think a lot of people bought tickets but, decided not to “risk” showing up.
It was a 90 minute show with no intermission. I’ll write a full review and dedicate an entire post to it on Monday instead of forcing it onto you in this entry though. 🙂
I’ll probably do that for all the musicals/plays I see in the future, too! (If I ever get to go to one again!)
When boyfriend picked me up, it was raining pretty hard (for Las Vegas).
We passed a sewer that was overflowing because we don’t have enough of them built here in our, usually, super dry city. We will seriously flood one day because they are not prepared for any type of precipitation.
BUT, just as they predict, I also bet we’ll never get enough for that to happen.
On Wednesday, I didn’t really do anything besides eat dinner and play the Sims. We had no errands to run, thankfully, we just got to relax. Same with Thursday.
Yesterday was dreadful. I almost cried when I realized we had one roll of toilet paper left and when we casually went to Walmart to fetch some, we saw that the selfish assholes had bought ALL of it, for no reason. They literally bought the whole entire city (and world) out of it! I, honestly, don’t get why that is their main concern. I feel like there are so many more important supplies to get… but, whatever. To each their own, I GUESS. 😡
We were only able to get two packs of baby wipes and two packs of picnic napkins when we went to Sprouts right after. Which was also full to the brim with people and also, completely out of toilet paper. Their stuff hurts, though… I wouldn’t have wanted it anyways… may as well use leaves at that point, honestly.
BUT THEN, we had to go to Albertsons, too since Sprouts didn’t have every single thing we needed on our list (so, so much was SOLD OUT). Of course, Alb’s was ALSO full, full, full of people but, we did find the things we needed including a big bag of our cats’ fave Rachael Ray food.
We spent SO much time maneuvering through crowds, desperately looking for what we needed on bare shelves, and waiting in loooong lines… we didn’t make it home until nearly 8 PM. Then, we panicked and thought, “oh my gosh, what if people are hoarding weed, too?” so, we dropped off our groceries and went to get some, lol.
Luckily, the budtenders said they had a lot left. 😀
We noticed loads of people buying carts full of water, too, so we went to fill up as many gallons as we had available. At Walmart, there was more water left than Gatorade/Powerade though. Am I missing something here about that?? Would I survive longer off those??
I have no idea what I need in case of a real life apocalypse, you guys. I’d be one of the first to die, I think… (well, actually, I *know.*)
When we finally settled in at home, it was nearly 9 PM. Boyfriend made us meatball sub sammies for dinner. We watched the newest episode of The Voice and half of the first episode of the new season of Good Girls.
I played more of the Sims when I finished eating and boyfriend also played it on his XBOX. It’s so fun when we are both playing like that. 😀 We stayed up until nearly 5 AM.
Today, we both woke up around 2:30 PM. I decided I better get back to work and see what it’s like over there. I’m kind of scared (not of the virus, of the SLOWNESS) but, my coworker messaged me and told me that it’s not so bad and that I should go so I’ve got high hopes and all my fingers and toes crossed.
After my shower, skincare routine, stretch and workout, I watched the rest of the Good Girls episode while boyfriend cooked this scrumptious deep-fried chicken for dinner. The nasty greasy stench is stuck in my hair and clothes now but, it was yummmm-eee!
We bought whole wheat flour because people bought all the regular kind and it actually tasted normal!! We liked it and recommend it!!
When we finished eating, we went straight to Starbucks for our espressos and then, to Total Wine for our booze. My heart dropped when I saw that my preferred Patrón bottle wasn’t on the shelves. I thought people had stocked up on it and I was going to be stuck buying the $75 one! THANKFULLY, boyfriend asked the associate and she was able to grab one for us from the back. 😀 Honestly, if that had been the case, where people had stocked up on it… I would have bought those last two $75 bottles. I would *need* them if we were stuck indoors for any amount of time, okay?
When we got home, I started typing this, we smoked a blunt, and now I’m gonna go get ready for work. ❤
Stay healthy and HAPPY, folks!! Love you all!! ❤
