Weekend Warrior


With the weekend looming ahead I am beginning to have second thoughts about this whole NaBloPoMo thing. I mean, seriously: who wants to read what I have to say 30 days in a row? It's not like I have ever had a sweet mullet of which I could post pictures, or a cute kid that I can brag about. In fact, a lot of people might actually need the weekend to, you know, take a little break from my supreme wit and all. Give them a little chance to digest my keen insights into global issues.

Oh well, too late now. I've already signed myself up and I am no quitter. This will be like a Morgan Spurlock* show: "Read the fascinating tales of a middle school librarian forced to write about her life for the next... 30 Days".

So what's the deal with this weekend warrior? First off I am in desperate need of a Happy Hour or Two. C thinks it's hilarious that our H.H. starts at 2:30 but with weeks like these, we need it. And just because he can stay out with his work friends until midnight and still get 8 hours of sleep doesn't mean I should be deprived of my alcohol consumption.

Secondly, I need to get my ass to the cinema. There are at least four movies I want to see: Borat, The Departed, The Prestige, and Marie Antoinette. I think I can hold off on the Marie Antoinette until C can pirate it from someone but I do get credits for my French class for seeing it. Maybe I'll just pop in an old Gerard Depardieu movie and call it 2 hours of French culture, oui? (Can you picture me and Chris spending the weekend on a Depardieu marathon of classics such as My Father the Hero and Bogus?) Anyway, this is the first time in a loooong time that I am actually excited to go to the movies; I think I might have OD'd on them this summer out in the hinterlands of Rochester. I'm ready to escape into the world of make-believe for a few hours.

Other than that, I'm going to keep it low-profile. Plans will be made, oh yes they will, but not until I feel like actually doing something. This is the first weekend in months that I don't have some kind of obligatory wedding/bridal shower/baby shower/christening/family event that requires my presence and I am going to spend it doing what I want, when I want.

See you Monday er, tomorrow for more posting fun!


*Re: Morgan Spurlock
Why doesn't his girlfriend tell him that his facial hair is atrocious? Come on now. For real.

You know, at first, I thought that was Bonaduci.
I'd have to say on the annoying scale, "Greencard" ranks pretty high. I mean, "My Father the Hero" has Izzi, which is now a bonus for that bomb of a movie.

I can't believe I forgot about Green Card. I think I blocked it out because my hatred for Andie MacDowell runs so deep.

K- Don't knock the Eastview. You could get some mad good Chinese at P.F. Chang's! Or Taco Bell. Whatever.

You might have just made me want to become a school librarian - if happy hour can start at 2:30 instead of 5:00 I'm all over it.

Yep, happy hour at 2:30 is just one of the many, many perks of being in a public school. Another is 3 months off in the summer. Just sayin'.

Oh, and Meg? Don't tell me you haven't tried Taco Bell's new Moo Shoo Gordita? Do you live under a rock?
