To say that my weekend was anything less of FANTASTICAL would be a bold, filthy stinkin' beast lie.
Friday: I wake up around...oh...11. I lay in bed, too excited to get up. I would be going to AWA for the first time in years. AND I had a costume. I was fantasizing when my dad comes into my room.
"Wake up. Time to get dressed"
Me: Um...wait...whut? :V
"Get ready to go"
Me: Where am I going?
"To the Condo. You're cleaning"
...../flails. I ended up getting dressed and walking downstairs. Now, I have been sitting on my ass all month, waiting do to something. So...I hang out with friends. I tell my dad that he KNEW I had plans all weekend. He KNEW I had not been doing anything all month and would have been glad to help with the condo. WITH FURTHER NOTICE. He then proceeds to yell at me, saying how I am ungrateful and need to get my priorities straight. Cindy walks into the picture.
She says the basis of this: "You get to go to college, and I don't. We are broke, so I can't go, but you do. I raised a selfish immature whiney little BITCH. I hate who you are. I am so ANGRY. You get to sit on your ass while I bust my ass (I wonder: doing what?). You treat us like a fridge. Come home only to clean us out of house and home of food. Blah blah blah." Except...some of that was verbatim.
Dad then replies: Well, that was everything I wanted to say.
Greeeeeeeeeat. Thanks Dad. :D
So I ended up picking up Steve and asking for help. He comes along and we meet up with dad at the Condo. Justin left it a mess, as I expected. I ended up telling dad about my issues with Cindy. He called me a Liar practically and yelled at me...until I started hysterically crying and raising my voice (which I don't do to my dad). He then starts to probably maybe almost understand that I am not a little lying hoor. We get to cleaning. He leaves after a few hours. Steve and I clean Justins room, his bathroom, the living room, the loft, the dining room, my room, my bathroom, the kitchen (OHDEARGOD).
Hahah. About the kitchen. The fridge? Well, the power has been cut off for about a month now. Since we have been out. Justin didn't clean out the fridge before he left. There was Milk...bags of meat, Baking soda that was hard as a brick and other non-discernable objects. Needless to say, there was a HUGE endangered habitat in that Box of Hell. Maggots, flies, dead shit....everywhere. I was covered in Bleach and god knows what for 3 hours while I hand scrubbed that thing.
Justin: You owe me. >:'
And.....not only did the fridge look aweful, but it smelled like Hot Ass. I nearly Gaged....alot. It was the most god aweful stink I have ever smelt in my life. *shudders*
So....Steve and I cleaned from 2pm to 2am. Yeah, 12 hours of solid consitent cleaning. There went MY Friday. Greta helped alot by bringing over some Pizza for dinner. Steve and I would have forgotten to eat.
Saturday: I get a wake up call. From my dad. He leaves a voice mail saying how proud of the condo he is and junk. He tells me he wants me back at the condo whenever this weekend to vaccuum one more time and to spray down the ass fridge. I get dressed (I spent the night at Steves) and Steve and I head to Walmart. I buy some costuming things (red bra, electrical tape, gloves, makeup and fishnets). We go to my house and I shower and do all the happy crappy. I get dressed in my costume and we go to AWA. (by now, it is 5pm)
Get to the Con and I head straight for the bathroom. I brought hair glue to spike my hair up because oh gods...the helmet hair would have been terrible. I walk out with my hair all nice and get Steve to wrap my gloved hand up with Elec. Tape.
Oh, and by the way, I was Sexy Ghetto Femme Vash. 8D We hang outside near the bridge for a while talking to these people about how if you close your eyes while watching DBZ or Inuyasha, it sounds like a really bad Porno. The whole day Steve and I just browse around. We ran into Jon, Heather/Emily, Maddie/Marv/Justin, Lindsey, Russell (Joy), and random others. Towards the latter part of the night, I met up with Nikostratos (*waves* Howdy). We went out to the fountain in front of the Waverly and chilled. It was a GORGEOUS night, so I enjoyed myself. Then, V for Vendetta walks by. I kind of stare, and then point and exclaim rather loudly "YOU!". From then on, V and I were inseperable. Well, until I had to take Steve home. I drop him off and get back to the con. The first person I see is V. We go out to the smoking area and chill there. He was with his friend, Ryan, so I had some nice conversations with them both. We end up going to Steak and Shake for some dinner. After dinner, I had to go back home for reasons I do not want to list. But anyways~
Sunday: Get to the con and walk around. I am still dressed in costume, people who were in costume last night that were now in street clothes could recognize me. I meet up with V and we hang out some more. We find Lindsey out by the Fountain and she joins our party. We walk to the dealers room (some random other Vash gave me a rose and his badge. XD) and I find Dante. I say hello and junk and we go about our way. V couldn't walk 5 feet without getting stopped for a picture. I mean, I got alot of pics taken, but DAMN. lawlz.
We go back out to the smoke dock and talk about dreams and such. I saw Mel (*wave* HI MEL 8D) so I am glad I was there. I was looking for her the whole freakin' Con. -_- But anyways~ Lindsey, V and I go to Applebees for some dinner. After we eat, we decided to caravan to my Condo so I could vaccuum and do finishing touches for my dad. I show V around the place and stuff. Lindsey leaves after a bit to head home. V helps me moves furniture and stuff. Afterwards, he helps me out by taking the stand up mirror and my TV. We take the TV to Steve in his car, drop it off, and he drives me to my house. I get some pants and out of my costume. He then drives me all the way back to my Condo where my scooter is.
You can't even imagine how grateful I am for V. Oh dear Lord. NO idea.
Monday: I stay the night at Steves on Sunday. Monday morning, Philip comes over and hangs with us a bit. Greta drives over to hang out...and then Paul stops by for a bit then leaves. Greta, Steve and I get ready and head to Border Pagans. I call V to see how he is feeling with his Con-Crud. He asks to come to Borders, and I say sure. He shows up the same time as Paul and we all just Chill. Everyone started slowly showing up. It was a nice wind down meeting. We didn't have a topic because Scott was dead Tired from his first day at work. I got to geek out about Anime, Trans-sexuals, girl/girl and boy/boy love, my boobs, and much much more! 8D
So, I had the BEST weekend ever. That and I am officially HIRED AT NETHERWORLDS. *throws confetti* I am super excited about this.
So, before I give myself carpal tunnel, I'm going to head off. Meeting up with V tonight to get the rest of the furniture from the condo.
