    the good, the bad, the sh$tty: a weekend in review

    i'm reposting this so yall can lol at me :P

    so this weekend i decided to conquer my fears with driving long distances and getting a jumpstart on new year resolution of going out and driving to see friends in other places. this weekend i saw 4 friends in buffalo.

    getting there was fine. i actually was speeding(80-85) cuz i was nervous. but my car got awesome mileage. 1/8th of a tank was used!

    i met friends at ruby tuesdays(after getting lost and having to call from the mall) they directed me to the restaurant. we like rt because they let us play our massive board games. this weekend we tried a new game called Dominion. everyone should try this game! it's like magic the gathering but not lol more for people who dont like magic. it was a lot of fun.

    then i had to go to the derby bout. i had to take the 90 to 190 and that's where things got messed up. i couldnt see the road due to the spray from other vehicles. so i was on the verge of an anxiety/panic attack. i got behond a salt truck and it was great to see the lights but bad from the spray and salt coming off of it

    i finally got off but then my gps told me to turn and i ended up in a residential neighborhood. fuck. all the xmas lights seemed to be mocking me in my despair. and in my panic state something said "do u have ur wallet?" cursory check went "noooooooooooooo!!!!" i must have dropped it at ruby tuesdays. fuck. so i was trying not to panic and consulted teh google. teh google will know how tog et me to the rink.

    it did.

    after getting turned around by these streets that go at weird angles i made it, late, to the derby. the parking lot had 0 handicap spots so a friend ran in and asked if i could park in the emergency parking by the door. they thankfully said yes but i had to leave early as that was a main exit for the mass of people. fair enough.

    get in and the bout was awesome. so different how we do things here in rachacha and the rink was TINY. they were raffling away couches too lol.

    then went to the after party. got lost and kept circling the venue lol. finally parked but didnt know where the accessble entrance was. my bff met me and she found it. it was a door with a call button to unlock it. no one answered. so she went inside and i just kept pressing it and saying "hello?" into the intercom. then it buzzed and unlocked. then the elevator was one of those old fashioned with a gate and a really heavy door. got in. pressed wrong button to the wrong floor. oops! finally got to the right floor and my bff was all "this is lame. tis for skaters only so dunno if u can be here. met a few of them. saw some of the rottenchesters. (yay!!) then we went to bff's place.

    she lives on the 1st floor of an apartment. there were 2 steps and we thought she could tilt the front then pull me in but with the snow it was a no go. miraculously, someone pulled in and a guy with a dog came. they helped her lift me up the steps and up the one into her apartment.

    yay for the kindness of strangers.

    bff and i talked and drank malibu passionfruit rum. it was rly viscous. my other friends had contacted ruby tuesdays and left their number if my wallet was found.

    this am i woke up at around 7:30 and needed to pee. i used a whiskey bottle to urinate in as i couldnt get into the bathroom. i went back to lay on the sofa when i felt i had to go #2. i went "ok i think i can make it til i get home" then i suddenly felt nauseous and had a stomach cramp when i passed gas and that's when i felt like something moved in my abdomen. i felt down and realised that i had just massively crapped in my pants. i got on the floor, moved the baby gate that kept the dog out of the bathroom (she eats the kitty litter) and had to crawl into the bathtub. it seemed i had yet another big blockage that decided to move down with loose stool. so the control for the water was just almost out of my reach. yay for having freaky long arms! turned it and got sprayed with ice cold water. turned on the tub faucet but i needed warm water and it to come out faster. then i went to turn the knob and the thing fell off and hit me on the head! to make matters worse the water was too hot and scalded my arm. so i had to lean, into the scalding water to affix the handle back on and somehow turn it right so i wouldnt burn myself more. despite all this, i kept calm as i knew i wasnt getting out of that tub before getting clean. i managed to get the water right, used a wash cloth and shampoo (as she only had bar soap) and got myself clean. i changed but had to throw away the pants (sad).

    while cleaning up my chair, her dog tried to eat one of the soiled paper towels, i said NO!, she ran into the bedroom then licked my bff's face. eeeeeewwwwwwww i told her that my body hates me. then she said "but i love you!" and that made things better. my wallet was found and i made it home and still have a lil over half a tank of gas to get me through the week til my other friend sends it thru the mail. i kissed my car when i got home and said "thanks for getting us home" i am missing a frat meeting as i had a bit of a fever and abdominal pain.

    it sucks to miss out on things like that. so frustrating that this keeps happening with my bowels. and i felt backed up but it always gets stuck so high up. maybe i need to try colonics but that scares me. just dunno how to resolve this but glad my childhood friend doesnt think the worse of me.

    thanks for reading my rant!

          Hope you have lots more and have the courage to get out there and experience many more good times!!!!

            Sounds like a great day, except for the shitty end .. at least you have a sense of humour about it! I have to be careful with alcohol and bladder, bowel. Especially hard liquor.

                I too say Kudos to you crypticgimp for getting out there, taking on your fear and getting started with your new year resolutions. Good for you! A lot more than many people can say. Despite all the mishaps,you got to see your friends, proved to yourself that you CAN do it, and came back with a story you'll remember for a long time

                    Good for you, and good for you for having a good time despite a few bumps in the road!

                    I think you learn quickly at the beginning, that a good sense of humor is going to be a must have! B & B issues make sure of that!

                      i would not have survived these past 25yrs of sci without my sense of humor. i also learned to not panic when my bowels freak out in far away places (maybe they are homesick? lol)

                      my bff is the.most.awesome.person. we've been friends since we were 11 and awkward. now we're almost 30 and slightly less awkward lol <3 all my friends. they are understanding, funny, and honest ppl. so glad to have them in my life.

                      and another adventure awaits!

                        Its great to have a friend like that...I have three others who are like what you describe...

                        I swear they would hook a truck to the bars on the windows of the jail for me if they thought I needed them too.

                        I think time is the only teacher that can make you that way with your bowels or at least it has taken alot of years for me anyway.

                        Like you I could not have survived without my sense of humor....

                        Don't forget to share the next adventure....

                          true daisy. my bowels just freak out and now i just roll with the punches, it's the times when it's happened right before my period where i freak out due to hormonal emotional stability. but i got through this with a calm head. had to given that i had to drive my own ass back home. i have a rule and i stick to it: there is NO crying while driving

                              That story rates right up there along with Cory's (aka Mr.Coffee's) poop stories ! Maybe there should be a CC Poop Story Hall of Fame

                              Last poop mishap Bill had he blamed on the cats ..... a pets love is unconditional just like bff's !

                              I'm glad you survived your jaunt ... you really are my hero crypt ... I think you are amazing at how you roll with life !!
