Nope. He still went to the zoo because we took my little guy. My parents were in town and my aunt invited herself along. We ran into the school kids a couple of times, but they left about an hour before we did.

Memorial Day weekend plans?

Our office is closing in an hour and I'm planning on spending the afternoon by and in the pool. The rest of the weekend is still somewhat up in the air. It'll be nice to just relax and have a 3.5 day weekend though.

Did I tell you guys I talked to Jasper yesterday morning? It went very well.

I am glad it went well! I hope you are doing OK!

No weekend plans! I feel kinda bad about it. I might take my Mom to a museum, but she hasn't answered me yet. I REALLY need to do chores and salon stuff (both of which I dread), so there will be some of that. And I think I will sit out back and read and have some drinks!:D

Yes, and since you brought up that thing about the golden rule yesterday, would you be okay with your current boyfriend calling and talking with his ex?

Memorial day plans: Sat, driving out of town with my mother and sister for a friend of the family's wedding. Then we get to share a hotel room. Joy.

Meow!

He talks to her all the time, they're friends. She's married now and has a 2-month-old.

I wasn't trying to be flippid, but I think it's safe to assume he didn't just break up with her a few months ago. And was that his most recent girlfriend? How long has it been since he last had a relationship?

Thanks for the concern guys. I don't know if they caught the truck yet. I stayed up pretty (like 4 am) late and am just really waking up right now and I haven't turned on the news or anything yet. I'm figuring they probably did, or will. Most bridges have CCTV cameras I think.
Memorial day: If the rain stays stopped...BBQ at home maybe. Only 4 of us so nothing special. If it rains...BBQ on the patio under cover. Finishing up (3) final papers for school.

Ew - thanks for the warning! I wanted to pick up some soil and plant a few things in pots this weekend, so maybe I shouldn't. Ahhhh who am I kidding?! This is FL - it only gets hotter!!!

You stay cool, too!!!

I have poker tonight and I have to go, I haven't played yet this year and the guys in the league are bugging me to come, but I'd really rather stay home tonight. Plus, I just filled up with gas this morning to the tune of about $60. The drive to the poker site will be at least 45 minutes.

Two refineries in Illinois shut down for the summer so Minnesota has the highest gas prices in the country right now.

The next time some whiney person writes in to Amby about how miserable they are, I will remember this article and respond accordingly.

This is from the UK, but I was astounded at the similarities to some arguements we've heard here.
