Home alone

Joe's work has once again dictated our evening. Only this time, more extreme than others.

With 24 hours notice, Joe had to fly to DC for a seminar. He'll be gone less than 24 hours and I'm fine with it.

So what do I do on a night alone? I run completely amuck (why isn't "amuck" recognized by spellcheck?). Totally crazy. Wild woman.

AKA: Three glasses of Chardonnay, a rogue quesadilla, and back episodes of The Mentalist.

This girl knows how to rebel, no? I bet you're all sad you weren't invited to my party.

P.S. Also, I watched Lost without him. And promised to save it for him. And out of habit, I watched it, reached the end, and hit "Stop and Delete". Crap.

So the poor fella will come flying home exhausted, pining after his supposedly recorded Lost episode and relishing a post of Chardonnay...and...

...!BANG!...his hopes will be dashed.

Sass said...

I'd give anything to have a night to myself to run amuck, amock, amok...crazy.


Alabama Redhead said...

Quick, replace LOST with an episode of America's Next Top Model...he'll never know the difference!! :)

The Chocoholic said...

I'm stopping by from SITS to say Hello!

Great Post!

blognut said...

You can probably find the Lost episode on the internet somewhere.

You were definitely a wild woman last night, and up way past your bedtime. I'm telling on you.

Isabella said...

You are one crazy lady! Watch out!

Call Me Cate said...

Anonymous - THANK YOU!!! I wish you weren't anonymous so I could name my firstborn after you.

mo.stoneskin - I know, I'm such a bad wife. I don't know why he keeps me around some days.

Sass - He's very rarely away overnight though almost always occupied downstairs in the evenings. I enjoy my occasional nights flying solo.

Alabama Redhead - I seem to recall that didn't work out so well for you. I think I'll just tell him we'll watch on Hulu.

Chocoholic - thanks for stopping by!

blognut - I only stayed up so late because I was waiting for Joe to call. Yeah, that's it! And I was in bed at 11:30. That's not so late! I blame the naked Russians and their free laptops.

Donnetta said...

If he gets mad, just punch him in the face! :)

Sassy Britches said...

I am reveling in your amok-ness, but ohhhhhh girl, you deleted LOST?!

Don't they still do that re-run the last week's episode right before the next week's thing? That's actually even better because they have all the extra info running along the bottom of the screen. If he's upset, put that spin on it!

the iNDefatigable mjenks said...

I like because it's "amok". best friend and his wife are Joe and Kate.

Wait a second...

Debbi said...

OH NO!! you deleted! LOL yikes.

Snarky A. said...

Hope you had fun running amok!
You can easily find the Lost episode online, not to worry!

Just say Julie said...

So every time I hear amok, I think of Hocus Pocus and have to say it three times... amok amok amok.

Ok, I'm better now. And I have to admit every now and then i crave a solo night.

Ryan Ashley Scott said...

Rogue quesadilla! Now THAT sounds like a party.

Captain Dumbass said...

Ouch. And now you'll be busting to tell him what happened at the end.

Totally but kinda related, why doesn't Kate prance around in her underwear anymore?

Call Me Cate said...

Isabella - You can only imagine if it had not been a work night!

Donnetta - Fabulous advice!

Sassy Britches - Good call about the "enhanced" rerun. That might be the way to go.

the iNDefatigable mjenks - Your Kate spells her name wrong. I mean, different.

Debbi - Wish all of life had an undo button!

Snarky - I always have fun running amok. It just ends too soon.

Julie - I haven't seen that movie so I'll take your word for it. When Joe was in his MBA program, I had every other Friday night to run amok by myself. Twas awesome.

RAS - You've never had a quesadilla until you have a rogue quesadilla.

Captain Dumbass - I already told him that Sawyer was forced to kill Sayid at the end. So sad. And Kate doesn't prance around in her underwear anymore because all that island hopping gave her stretch marks.

Grand Pooba said...

I am a little dissapointed you didn't give me a call and invite me over. I mean, I could have brought over a puzzle or something and we'd party all night!

Shey said...

LOL! What a fun post.

Invite me next time to your party. hehehe

Melissa B. said...

I must be getting old...I actually ENJOY having the house to myself. Cheers!

beth said...

between me and you...I love when the mister is out of town for a night or makes me like him even better when he gets back home !!

and in regards to the lost "lost"...just run around naked in front of him for a minute and he'll forget all about that episode !!!

Call Me Cate said...

Grand Pooba - Next time, I'm SO going to call you.

Shey - Sounds like my party will be popular. We'll all have so much fun!

Melissa - When I was younger and more timid, I hated it. Now, it's awesome. I sorta wished he traveled just a *bit* more often.

Beth - Well there's a way to distract him for sure!

The Wife O Riley said...

That sounds like the perfect evening right there.

Call Me Cate said...

Wife o Riley - Hard to beat chardonnay and a rogue quesadilla!
