What a weekend.....8 days....

The weekend is over, though I don't have to go into work tomorrow. I finished work on Friday...what a great feeling. To end it off we had a staff party. After work ended I floated out of the office with the biggest smile on my face. My job was finally done! A few of us went out for dinner and then back to Sarah's. The pre-party began at her place, and the megaphone that we happened to "borrow" from CIC(work) made the evening that much more amusing. Sarah's apartment is on the 12th floor(top) and faces onto another apartment building. Some heckling may have been done to the other building as well as to those friends coming to the apartment. From there we went to Angelas place where the real party was to happen. There were lots of jello shooters (with whipcream) and lots of food. It was a really fun night with everyone there. The buggy races down the street were quite funny also, though the cops that drove by later questioning about them, probably would not have found that amusing. Sarah and I didn't stay out too late, but we had a great time! Definitely a great way to finish off a summer job.
Yesterday I met up with Randy to hang out and we went to Mossimos to grab some pizza and wings( good). It was a nice chill afternoon/evening, though the waitress there was a little off. She was just a bizarre woman and needs to tone it down a few notches. Randy was up at the bar for something and the woman comes over to me and asks me what we were doing later on that night (can't people go out for dinner as just friends...come one). Then she told me that "Failure to Launch" had just come out and it's a great movie...."just a suggestion" she says. Thank you lady, but 1) we're not on a date 2) I have a boyfriend and 3) mind your own business.
I went to Darcies last night. She worked till 10 so I headed over there to meet up after for a little bit of pre-drink before going to the Palmwood(bar). She had a friend, someone from work, over whom I had never met. When I saw who it was I knew exactly who she was and thought things may have been a little wierd. She dated(past tense) Mike this summer. Anyway, it turned out that her and I got a long great!! She is a sweetheart and I really wish she would have been around last summer because I think she would have been fun. Anyway, back to the night. Bryce picked us up around midnight, along with Dustin. We headed to the bar where we ended up seeing everyone from Customs(where I worked last year). It was quite the night...could have probably done with one less drink, but that doesn't matter. I had a blast. Ran into Mike, and I think I made an idiot out of myself, but I think I was the bigger person and actually went and talked to him, though I didn't really need to do. After the bar closed, the three of us girls and a few guys went back to someones parents beach house. I was way to drunk and just sat around and then passed out on some bed. We didn't end up leaving there till about 6, as I saw someone leaving for his 6 am shift. Quite funny. We got a ride home and for some reason I took Darcies key and went in first. I thought she was following, and I went straight to my bed and passed out. Her dad came down in the morning and said she wasn't there. I was so confused because she came home with me....though she didn't end up getting out of the car and left and stayed somewhere else. Random....but she showed up not long after I got up...haha. Great night!

Well, there are only 8 days left until departure. It's unbelieveable how fast time has flown by this summer. I am really looking forward to going back to France. I am going to miss my family but I've got something good over in France. Also, I enjoy a slower paced more laid back environment. It's going to be a change for me living in the city and not having my small town life in La Chatre, though I am sure I will spend my share of time there :)
I'm off for now....the countdown continues...lots to do

Just wanted to say thanks for taking a look at my "would be" blog and letting me know about the links. I really have no clue about all this blogging stuff, how do you put a pic in your profile? I tried to figure it out to no avail. Oh well. Wow, you're going back to France soooo soon(I'm jealous...haha!) Good luck with all the ca-razy packing. Bye!
