FREAKY FRIDAY!!! Weekend plans, folks?

Tonight: "Bachelorette" party. Not really, she won't let us call it that. Six friends and the bride's mom are taking her out for dinner and drinks tonight. I already have my bus route planned (the bus goes from my neighborhood to within a block or two of where we're going). I plan to have several $10 martinis.(that's pricey here, maybe not so much for you Chicago drinkers.)

Bride has a 2yo kid, said she'd like to be done drinking by 9:30. So I can go home drunk and game and be a dick online. ;)

Saturday: Recovery. Also, thinking of roasting a turkey breast for supper for me and Nick and the boys.

Sunday: Not a damn thing.

Weekend plans? I have aquired a used "Air Dock", why I dunno, not like I need one, but I cant say no to getting free crap. Anyway one of the bladders has a hole in it. The guy gave me the patch kit, so I figured if I can get it sealed right, I can use that for my boat, and turn my floating boat dock into an actual floating dock. Put some chairs and a table on it, even my fire pit. Think it will look cool being right ON the water, not just next to it.

Also have to find a way to spray my Mango tree.

I don't care where you are. Any drink that costs half as much as a bottle is expensive. Might be the norm, but its still expensive.

Weekend plans: In-laws are in town. I'm going to build a copper trellis for my garden (I bought all the copper pipe yesterday) and get it anchored and some snow pea plants out in my garden and do a little bit of landscaping in my back yard and hopefully brew my beer that I didn't do last weekend because I rented a dingo and rototilled my entire back yard (about .25 acres), limed, fertilized, seeded and covered with 17+ bales of straw.

I agree. I can drive 20-30 minutes east and have cheap cocktails that are crazy strong. Wisconsin is a great place for lushes.

1. COOL. I have a friend who did that with copper and it looked awesome. I normally am not a fan of the green patina that copper gets, but with plants, it looks cool.

2. It wouldn't let you type the B word? Weird that it lets me type whatever bad words I want, eh?(SHouldn't it be consistent?)

I saw some vague reference to this on Reddit and had no idea. What an idiot, and I'm glad she got fired. I still giggle when someone says "duty" or "fracking" in a meeting.

Weekend plans...nice long walk for the dogs after work today. Maybe the dog park on Saturday a.m. They haven't been in a long while and they act like d1cks when we're there now, so we had to leave after 10 minutes yesterday.

Probably should go get my passport on Saturday morning. I'm facing an opportunity to travel internationally for work, and I want to jump the f on that.

Final home game for our local hockey team Saturday night (Boo! Imma get drunk though!), hockey for me on Sunday.

And how bout a big F*<KYOU to Urlacher? You've been going downhill since you started, you haven't been that great in years, and you're gonna continue to go downhill til you're a washed up hasbeen and in 20 years you're gonna be hobbling around on your cane talking about how good you used to be. You're gonna end up a crippled old man washing my windows on the underpass, you POS! Fffffukkkkyouuuu!
But I guess I can't blame you for wanting to leave Illinois... Thanks again, liberals!
He wasn't worth anymore than the Bears were offering him. Dude's all pi$sed cause they didn't over pay him because of his past accomplishments, when in return for his past accomplishments he strong armed them into paying him more money than he agreed to play for and threatened to hold out. He can go f' himself, as far as I'm concerned.

NO team is going to pay him anymore than what the Bears offered. He's slow now (and his speed is what made him a good linebacker in his prime, without his speed he would not have been anything special ... he doesn't have that anymore) and he gets injured too frequently now.

Very cool! We have had a big problem around here for the past couple of years with people stealing copper and bronze to sell for scrap. They have hit the cemeteries, constructions sites, churches, parks, etc. I think it sucks.

Weekend plans -

Tonight: Nothing! Going to hang out with the boys and hopefully my husband will go out with his friends to watch basketball. This is his favorite time of the year and he has been declining all invitations to go out. He needs to get together with the guys that he grew up with - they are good guys and they always make him feel better because they don't make him talk, they just know him.

Tomorrow: I'm going to the Republican County Convention and Gov. Chris Christie is the keynote speaker :) Plus, it's an excuse to wear the suit that I just bought for the funeral and I look really good in it.

Sunday: Church (Palm Sunday), tball practice at 11 (it was cancelled last night because of the cold), then down to my MIL's. She agreed to go to her sister's house for Good Friday, saying that she didn't change her mind, she just "thought things through". Maybe we'll dye Easter eggs with the kids (they don't need to last until Easter)

Yes, I've heard of that. The prices for scarp have really gone up, along with the prices of building materials.
