Tonight - meeting up with friends for dinner and Olympic stuff
Tomorrow - more friends, cleaning, party, quick trip to hospital to pre-register for getting this kid out
Sunday - working at home probably
Tonight - ordering pizza and watching opening ceremonies
Tomorrow - waking up early and going to the springs if it doesn't rain. If it does rain I'll shop for the kids' school clothes. I haven't done this yet and it's hanging over my head. Maybe we'll go to the movies/dinner on Saturday night or have my sister over for dinner, beer, and cards.
Sunday - hanging with parents, hopefully we'll do some kayaking if the weather is good.
I'm doing a Magical Mystery Tour. It's sort of like a navigational scavenger hunt for motorcyclists. You get a sheet of directions without any place names. It says things like: "Go 3.2 miles until you see three green houses next to each other. If the number on the middle house is even, turn right. If it's odd, turn left. Go 5.7 miles until you see the brass weathercock..." You need sharp eyes, a knowledge of current events ("If the current Sec. of State is female, turn left. Else, turn right."), and an ability to follow directions ("#35. Cross off instructions 4 and 5. Did you remember to read the whole route sheet before taking off?").
It's my first time, so I'm expecting to get completely lost and have to open the rescue envelope. I've also selected to do the harder route (MHP = Massive, Hairy/Huge, Pendulous) since my bike is more off-road capable than most of my fellow riders'.
Next weekend is my gf's friend's wedding on Cape Cod. Then I get a couple of weeks off before my internet biker gang's annual Labor-Day-weekend assault on Canadia.
Cooking out. Farmers' Market!!! So excited to be able to go back to the big one at PSU, we've had other plans every recent Saturday. Out to see a band or two. And probably visiting a ghosttown, I feel like looking at a stagecoach house. And ever more packing.
Tonight- watching opening ceremonies then black and white movies with the best friend. I was going to go to the museum today but I can't seem to tear myself away from the computer and I still haven't gotten my work done.
Tomorrow- friend's bday party in the park with her really irritating dog that barks too much, then yoga, then maybe out somewhere
Sunday- brunch with old friend then maybe free concert
I'm on call for work (bleeeeegh I can be called out anytime - it's unlikely, but still possible). I'm also working tomorrow (in the office, I have a supervisee who only works weekends and it's time for supervision. His job is mainly data entry so supervision is like 15 mins, but I have other stuff to do too).
I saw most of the opening ceremony today and it's fab!
It's not out of the question. Like I said, I've never done one of these before, but it wouldn't surprise me if the route sheet said something like: "#22. Take Elsa dress shopping. If she only shows you overboob, turn right. If she shows some sideboob, turn left. If she shows any underboob, go straight."
Going on a mini-tour with a friends' band. It was supposed to be Toronto-Ottawa-Montreal on Friday-Saturday-Sunday, but the Toronto show fell through. So, instead, it's the Babylon on Ottawa tomorrow night and L'Escriffe (or something like that) in Montreal on Sunday!
There's a simple way, and it involves you hopping on the back of my bike.
Be right back, Hon. I'm just gonna to hop on the back of this guy's motorcycle. Don't worry. It's cool. I met him on the internet. What? I dunno. I'm not exactly sure where we're going. It depends on whether the number on the middle house is even or odd. But there will probably be some dress shopping, too. Huh? No, silly--the dress is for Elsa. ELSA. She's from the internet, too. What are you not getting about all this?
Friday: Morning show of Dark Knight (liked Ledger's performance in Brokeback much better), afternoon show of Patti Smith doc ( my friend Dan is from South Jersey too and extremely sensitive about it),renewed gym membership, ate lasagna without enough tomato sauce, Stooges concert (recap in other thread), Hunter Thompson doc midnight show.
Saturday: Laundry, finish making Maine plans, screenings at MOMA and Man on Wire.
Sunday, more movie glut, gym.
also doing my damndest not to shove my fist through a window....
