TOTAL randomness...

Phone Conversation with Steve today...
Steve: "Did you remember to go to the bank?"
Me: Yeah. "Why?"
Steve: "Oh, no reason. I just thought maybe you forgot."
Me: "No, I didn't forget. Loser... So, when are you getting home?" (I wanted to know because it was trick-or-treat night tonight in town and I wanted to make sure he'd be home in time.)
Steve: "Why? Are you horny?"

Seriously, what the hell? Um, no, Hon. No, I'm not. LOL! What a freakin' dork! Men are weird.


Our town's trick-or-treat night was tonight. And for the love of god, PLEASE don't ask me why it was tonight because I don't know. I've looked into it and I can't find a reason anywhere. All I know is that the Wednesday before Halloween is always trick-or-treat night in the area, and has been since I was a kid. It's odd. It's weird. And it makes no sense to me. But it is what it is, so we go with it. LOL!

Anyway, it turned out to be a lot of fun. The girls had fun, I got a shitload of exercise, and I realized, as I squirmed my way through literally hundreds of kids on the sidewalk, that my town really does totally rock. Small towns rule.


My sister-in-law has been abnormally, over-the-top nice to me lately and it's freaking me the hell out. This is the same girl who despised me (and everyone on Steve's side of the family) a few short years ago, didn't come to our wedding, and never acknowledged the birth of Grace. (She's also the one who owns stock in khaki shorts and pants, but I digress...) Anyway, she's all chatty with me these days, calls me, etc. I'm not necessarily complaining because I'm all for family members getting along and stuff. But it's just not like her, so I don't know what's up.

And she's been drinking beer at family gatherings lately. This is also odd for her, so I'm wondering if the two are connected... "Hey! I'm kind of drunk! I think I'll actually like Allison today." LOL! Hmmmm.....


People, in general, were cranky today. Bitching about each other/to each other/around each other/etc. I started the day not being in the mood to listen to it and just shrugging it off or shaking my head, wondering what the hell was wrong with people.

But then I ended the day being bitchy myself (for no particular reason) and bitching about other people too.


Story From the Weekend...

So Steve and I went to a Halloween party last Saturday night. We actually had a blast and I'm glad we went. But there was one particular girl there that Steve knows from high school. I can't stand the girl. Now before y'all go assuming I have no reason, let me say that I am friends with every single other female friend that Steve has in his life. I think they're funny and fun and I can sit and talk to them all night long.

But there's this one particular girl named H. When Steve and I first met and got an apartment together, Steve ran into her and told her to come check it out, meet me, etc. She said (and I quote), "Well, give me a call when your old lady's not there and I'll come see it." Um, excuse me? Now I can assure you that this was not her evil plan to bed Steve in his new apartment. She's just a bitch. Most other girls hate her. And she knows it, so she prefers to just associate with guys. Which is totally fine. But when your guy friends find girlfriends and get married, you need to accept that girlfriend/wife whether you like it or not.

She is the one person I wouldn't "allow" Steve to invite to our wedding and I still stand by that decision. I've talked to the girl a total of ONE time for a whopping 10 minutes and it took every ounce of self-control to not punch her in the face. She was going on... and on... and on... about how she couldn't understand why every guy in the universe wouldn't want a piece of her. And how she was too good to date anyone other than a doctor, lawyer, etc. I kid you not. She said these things.

So anyway, after the Halloween party on Saturday, Steve laughed and said that I've "made H. afraid" to talk to him. I was like, "Huh?" And he said that at the party, she said, "I'd talk to you more, but I know your wife hates me." (See? This is where the part comes in that I have no problem letting someone know I don't like them.) And then Steve told me that his response to her was laughing and, "Oh please... Allison doesn't hate anyone. Seriously." So when he first told me all of this, I was kind of happy, thinking he really thought I was a truly good, nice person that had no room for hatred in her heart. But the more I thought about it, I realized he was probably being sarcastic. OR, he has another wife and he got us confused. [sigh] Asshole. LOL!


I'm down another 5 lbs. without even trying. Sweet.


I'd write more, but I'm flippin' tired and Grace just woke up. It's off to Dreamland for the people in this house (after my bedtime Marlboro Light, of course).


September said...

God, why can't my SIL start drinking??

Dawn said...

Congrats on the weight loss, that's awesome!

Oh, and I would have punched her. LOL!

Alien said...

LOL September! Maybe she hasn't found the right drink yet. Offer her a different one every time you're around her. Eventually, she'll like one and you can get her shitfaced. ;)

Dawn, glad to hear I'm not the only one who would get violent with this chick. It's funny because EVERY person you talk to who is her "friend" all admit that she's kind of hard to take and they can see why most people hate her. Um, alrighty then. LOL! As long as she knows I don't like her and stays the hell away from Steve, I'm good. LOL!

Melissa said...

Why was your trick or treating last night? ;)

Amber said...

"Oh please... Allison doesn't hate anyone. Seriously." --
-- a chick said something like this to Kory once, ans he said "Yeah, she scares a lot of people." LOL!! See? This is why I like you. ;)

I love small towns. But why the early T or T, I'm not getting. ??


Belynda said...

Man, that Steve sure is a romantic! LOL

Alien said...

LOL Amber! But I just don't get it. I am NOT mean (in person). I don't act bitchy (in person). And even if I do hate you, I tend slap on a fake smile and be nice as pie to you when you're in front of me (in person). So what's with people always thinking I hate them or me scaring them. Damn freaks is what they all are. LOL!

And I don't KNOW why T-or-T is so early. It's ALWAYS the Wednesday before Halloween and has been since I was a kid. I've tried desperately to research it and find out why, but I've always failed. (sigh) LOL!

Belynda, yes, he is, isn't he? I tell you what... he makes me swoon. (rolling eyes)

Tink said...

What a kick ass (long) post! I love that H. is scared of you. What in the world made her a friend of Steve's in the first place?

Alien said...

LOL Tink. I'm not really sure. I guess because guys are way less judgemental than girls and kind of blow off people's faults? Other girls just get catty and develop a "fuck her" attitude. Guys kind of shrug it off and say "whatever."

And it's not like Steve hangs with the girl or anything. We see her once or twice a year at other people's gatherings and he says hi. And now that I know she realizes how I feel about her, I figure I'll just shoot her really dirty looks at the next gathering and possibly throw a punch or two (kidding).

beth said...

Fabulous new avitar picture! You look awesome. How sweet that you've completely fooled your husband into thinking you love everyone.

I'm sure you were shooting H less-than-friendly looks without even being aware of it. You just don't have it in you to be that two faced. :-)

Alien said...

LOL Beth. Glad you like the avatar. But um, I'm about to go change it. LOL! I can't *stand* having myself staring at me everytime I come here. So, off to create a silly cartoonish version of myself to post instead...

And yeah, I was shooting H. dirty looks. And I can even be two-faced. I think we all can to an extent. But with her, I'm *not* too faced because it's been very clear from the start that I don't like her. LOL!
