Halloween Dilemma

To continue on from yesterday’s blog about Erin vs. the Flies... Erin thinks that flies are "thrill seekers." She said "If there are 2 of them they will fly into a room and a see which one lives, it's their form of Russian roulette."

Erin and I have plans to go to Fells point with a group of our friends for Halloween. Unfortunately we don't have plans for a costume and Halloween is but a week away. We've had many ideas for what we could go as. We thought about Cops and Robbers, King and Queen, Gangsters, Batman & Robin, and finally Cowboy & Cowgirl. We have yet to order our costumes and I'm not sure if we will have costumes in time. I originally like the idea as Indiana Jones (He's a bad ass) but Erin didn't like that idea much. I also really like the idea of Cowboy and Cowgirl but it seems to be a cowboy you need to be willing to spend about $200 on a costume you would probably only wear once. I just can't seem to grasp the concept on spending a ton of money on a costume you will only wear for a few hours.

Last night Erin and I had to run a few errands. I first went to the dry cleaners and picked up some of my clothes and also dropped off some; doing so I've broken a personal record. The most money spent at a dry cleaner in one week. The clothes I picked up were only about $10, and the clothes I dropped off are going to be $86. Then I thought to myself "Damn!!! That’s a lot of coin to do laundry!" After the cleaners we ran to Best Buy and Target (Erin wanted more Halloween decorations). When we got to Target Erin decided she wanted to go shopping for clothes and everything else we weren't there for. When we were almost finished at Target and close to the checkout there was a page over the intercom that said "Erin Kellough please come to the customer service desk." My first thought was "did she drop a damn credit card or something?" So we started walking to the service desk and it was a few of our friends. Needless to say it was Erin's friend and her fiancĂ©. Erin and her friend decided they wanted to shop for another hour while Brian, Erin's friend's FiancĂ©, and I walked around the electronic department. Once the ladies were finally finished shopping we all went to Cold Stone for some ice cream (wasn't my idea). I got the chocolate peanut butter mash up in a large cup. This wasn't my brightest idea; I later had a stomach ache.

Day 2 of Being a Blogger

Last night Erin's grandmother's boyfriend turned 90 years old (yeah that's old), and the family was having cake and ice cream at her grandmother's house. Unfortunately I couldn't go because I really needed a haircut and had to take care of so many other things before my big meeting on Friday. So, amazingly Erin didn't force me to go with her to her grandmother's house. I managed to get my hair cut and pack my PS3 up (it's broken and I need to send it back to Sony to have it fixed). I also worked on my marketing material for my meeting. I'm very excited about this meeting and have high hopes of growing my business with a new distributor.

When Erin returned home from her grandmother's house she wanted to bake pumpkin seeds, and I wasn't too enthused with this because I was ready for bed. Being the good boyfriend that I am I stayed up with her so that she could bake these damn seeds. Once she was finished we went up stairs and watched "How I Met Your Mother." I really enjoyed the time I spent with Erin last night and hope I have many more nights like that. If you were unaware of the show "How I Met Your Mother" it is the jam and everybody should really check it out. Erin and I've been watching together for the last couple of years and we really enjoy our "shows" together.

Now I am at work, and I just got out of a meeting with a guy from ABF (a freight company). Erin is now freaking out about the flies in the office and it’s quite entertaining. She’s bouncing around trying to swat the files with rolled up paper. Once she hits one she keeps hitting the same one to make sure it’s dead... I'm pretty sure if I were hitting the flies it would only take one hit to kill them.

I am a blogger (for) now...

To people who had jokes about me blogging "HERE IT IS BITCHES." This is my first blog....ever and maybe my last; who knows? Erin finally convinced me to do this so here it is. My brother knows me pretty well. He was correct about my blogging topics. Some would be about how I believe The Office is the jam, and how much I love my guns (firearms and my arms). They would also be about my family being pretty legit, and how Erin means the world to me, although I want to strangle her at times. Another topic maybe about my job and how it can be pretty interesting at times and other times not so much. My entertainment topics would be about music, movies, and books. I'm a fan of music (I've been into Country music lately), movies are good times (require no energy for the most part and are pretty entertaining most of the time), I can read contrary to popular belief; I like books about gadgets, outlaws, and anything that will make me laugh. (SUCK IT BRO). However my brother is wrong about a few things, I wouldn't talk about my love life on the web...just not happening. Also, he's wrong about the world embracing me for my Jock Strap Rash, never had a jock strap rash. They would just have to embrace me for what’s within the Jock Strap...But I wouldn't want anyone getting a man crush on me or anything such as that. (Love ya Bro)
