in the beginning....


So I'm sure most of you reading this blog have thought to yourself at one time or another, "why is it so hard to get in touch with Jessie?? I mean, I call her, I email her, text her, snail mail her, and nothing." Well, my friends and family, it has nothing to do with how much I love or hate you and all to do with my sheer laziness. However, armed with 3 loooonnngg months off and a new digital camera and facebook, I am making a full-hearted attempt at staying in touch. Here it goes....


This weekend myself, Jodie (my heterosexual life mate or HLM) and Aurelia (friend from high school who I lost touch with but recently have gotten back in touch with due to her wise decision to move back to Columbia) took the 3 hour car ride up to the booming metropolis of Waynesville, NC for a girls only mountain weekend. First things I noticed as we entered Waynesville: we were the youngest people there by a good 30 years and a full set of teeth is absolutely not necessary to reside here. All fine and dandy by me as I packed only comfy clothes and had no intention of leaving the moutain house until Sunday when it was time to leave. I know Aurelia was stressin over planning stuff for us to do the whole time we were up there, but clearly she did not know of my ability to fully enjoy myself doing absolutely nothing. You know how there are some people that gotta be doing stuff all the time and seeing all the sites to have a good vacay?? Well hey, that ain't me.


So we stopped at the local Ingles on the way into town to pick up some necessities and then headed to the house. We popped open a bottle wine, I cooked us up some bleu cheese hamburgers, and the fun began. In the hours that followed, we basically played special olympics trivial pursuit 90's edition (I am pretty sure one pie piece was earned in two hours), Aurelia fell off her chair (which I didn't get a pic of in my drunken state because I couldn't figure out my new camera), and a random dog scared the living day lights out of me when he showed up in the window. Think, Cujo. All in all, a great night.


The next morning I woke up at 6am to the sound of 4 million birds wanting to mate. Literally, I thought I was inside a bird house these freakin birds were so loud. As soon as the loud leader of the crew would shut it, a new and louder bird would chime in. In classic Jessie fashion, I could not be the only one annoyed by the birds so I casually called Jodie's name as she was sleeping in the twin bed beside me. As soon as she woke up, I asked her if she heard the birds. "What birds?" she asked. It only took her about 10 seconds before she was soo annoyed by the birds that she wanted me to die. Well, she couldn't sleep anymore so she got up at 6:15 am and made coffee and did all that and I, of course, peacefully went back to sleep 'til 9. Sarah, does this remind you of anything???


The rest of the weekend was spent drinking, relaxing, and talking and we sadly made our way home tonight around 7. A great weekend was had by all!! All right, I'm off to cap off my weekend with the Food Network Awards and then some bird-free sleep. Comment, please!!

Shereef said...

Sounds like a fun weekend! Congrats on starting a blog :)

Sis said...

OK. So, I can't believe you have your own blog. So funny what you said, beacuse I was just thinking to myself "this chick takes weeks to return my emals or phone calls & now she's starting a freaking blog???" So, I am very proud of you. Now you just have to keep up an imteresting enough life to keep the blog going!

Speaking of, someone last night mentioned maybe we could find an Italian man for you on our trip & Jay & I both said "No more international men for Jess"! : ) Thought you might get a kick out of that!

Oh - Jay will totally appreciate your bird issue. He HATES the birds in the morning. He gets up every morning in the Spring all agitated & slams the window shut & promptly says "Damn Birds!", crawls back in the bed & goes back to sleep!

Love you! : )

Ok first, just damn - don't you think blogging is a glorified version of the Christmas letter concept that you hate so much?

Second - For those of us who went to Clemson, the term "local Ingles" summed up the type of place you were going to.

Third - "special Olympics trivial pursuit 90's edition" - HYSTERICAL - But I hope you don't try to track all of your drunken moments on this blog - There's not enough storage space on the Internet!

Finally - looking forward to all the special Olympics moments in ITALY!

Love and Miss you - Jay

I have to say that I am not shocked at how shocked you are at my newfound computer savviness. You're totally right though, to keep my blog fans interested I gotta start doin some cool s***. I am fairly certain that our upcoming trek over the atlantic will provide much to blog about!! And there will be absolutely NO international men. Period.

Blair said...

Just when I think my friend Jessie couldn't get any weirder......this is a good concept..however, how do I blog you to see if you want to participate in all you can drink wine night?

-jessie said...

dude...i would love to participate in all you can drink wine night but i think i may have a dinner date tomorrow night. if not, count me in!!

Sis said...

Dinner Date???? What is this? Must be big if you'd give up al you can drink wine night!

i'll be single forever said...

no such luck...it's with a girl i grew up with. we just got back in touch and were going to meet up for drinks. HOWEVER, she may be my gateway to some new hot young chaps!

Ryan said...

You, Jodie, and Aurelia in a house together for a weekend? Is it still standing?

Sis said...

Hey lil sis. You know if you're gonna do a blog, you've gotta give us something!!!! It must have been a busy day for you! I know if it was slow, you would've been blogging! The countdown is on - can't wait to see ya in the Atl airport in 3 days! : )

Sarah said...

Yes, it reminds me of two things. One, the dream I had this morning about my students making annoying bird noises until I woke up and realized that I had managed to work in the real life annoying bird noises outside my window into my dream. And two, when you woke me up to listen to the dripping faucet in Holmes and then later convinced me to get out of bed to shut it off. What the hell!

-jessie said...

well sarah, that is extremely funny about the newfound bird noises, however i was referring to the dripping faucet. i thought that you would appreciate the fact that i am still pulling the same shenanigans as i was five years ago. love you and thanks for commenting on the blog, will blog again tomorroow ( when im not drunk). love u.

Sarah said...

Dumbass reread what I wrote.

-jessie said...

I was hammerooed when I wrote that last night...please excuse. I mean what do you expect though - refer to the name of the blog! Don't you like the shout out I gave you though?? First Clemsonite to receive one. Keep up the good work.
