Shelvin' Books Like It Ain't No Thang

What's goin' down in the hizzouse, homeslices? This is NPDubya, rappin' at ya from the big bad liberry in da hood. I'ze about to tell youze about some mad playa hatin' goin' down this very p.m. at the hip hop happy hour- 2:30, sharp as a shark toof. We'ze about to tippity tap that bar Biggie styles.

Wow, spell check did not like that. Not one bit.

Anyway, as straight gangsta as my weekend is going to be, I still have to make it through the work day and that it going to take some... well, work. Plans include an excursion to the mythical IMAX to see some Spartans kick ass in 300. And bonus: Chris has never been to Jordan's Furniture. Wait, what? Your local furniture stores don't have an IMAX in them? What about a trapeze? Or Jelly Belly Land? A liquid fireworks show? They must at least have Dippin' Dots. No? You poor souls. How do you keep entertained when you go to buy furniture?

We might also take a drive up to scenic southern NH because they've started tapping the maple trees for syrup and this place provides both a tour and an amazing breakfast. Umm, banana pecan pancakes? Yes, please! And of course, the Sunday parent dinner- because how else will I get my leftovers to eat for lunch all week?

I'm also going to spend some time this end of week looking for viable summer employment, preferably something involving neither education nor children. I think barista NPW sounds about right. So- if you hear of any amazing summer opportunities, be sure to not send in your resume, and hook me up instead.

Annnnd.... I'm out.

My mum sent me a GALLON last year. I think I would go into a sugar coma if I consumed that much syrup. But, Damn, if I don't love that stuff. And those maple leaf candies. PURE sugar rush. Better than any coffee buzz or speed fix (I would presume).

That place actually puts the syrup on pecan pancakes? All the sugar shacks I went to growing up just poured it over snow and told us it was a sundae. I was smarter than the average Mainer, though, and I was on to them!

I've never bought furniture in a magical fantasy-land. It sounds awesome!

Meg- I think Chris almost went into a sugar coma- he had a maple donut after we had already eaten an entire maple meal. He did refrain from the maple milk shake and the maple sugar candy though. I was proud.

Noelle- Yes, Jordan's is something of an amazement. Chris demanded to know why our furniture stores are more like theme parks, but I have no answers for him.

SH- Hobos would have a field day in the furniture stores here- they have buckets of candy, cookies, coffee, you could basically eat for free for life if you pretended you wanted to buy a loveseat.

I very nearly went to Jordan's in Natick to see 300 Friday night! It's like 5 minutes from my house, yo.

this post was hilarious.
I think you should rap the entire time we have our next book club meeting.

OK, I have never been to Jordan's either, and I know I'm missing out. I seriously need a field trip. And, maple dining? Seriously? What's better than that??? Finally, summer jobs..I'm currently in the debate myself about working with kids or not. Sanity or not?

K- Bet you didn't know that rapping is one of my very special skills, did you? Ha!

L- It was a fairy tale weekend of furniture stores, maple sugar shacks, and springtime mud. Ahh, love.
