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.

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
The Gulf is up 83 degrees today...definitely a beach/boating weekend!

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.

Weekend plans:

Sat: Building-wide yardsale in the morning. I hate yardsales, but I was just gonna donate the stuff anyway...

Then hopefully dinner with my sister (the good one).

Sun: party at my mom's with some old high school friends and family. Should be nice if the weather holds.

Mon: I wish I could say a whole lot of nuthin'. But unfortunately, the day will be filled with chores.

Weekend plans: It is niiiiice outside right now. I'm hitting the paved trail on my mountain bike soon, since it's rained too much recently for the woods.

Nothing else planned the rest of the weekend. I'll go see a movie with J if he wants to go, but I'm all good waiting for stuff to come out on DVD.

Just had my last (hopefully) immunization before India, so I'm hoping it doesn't make me feel crappy.

I've mentioned before that Nick mispronounces names and words. My new pet peeve:

"Adamant" He pronounces it uh-DAM-ant.

I told him, "Honey, it's ADamant." "I know, I just forget."

At some point, if you have a chance see the Gilbert and Sullivan piece Pirates of Penzance. The story turns on massacred words of pilot and pirate ( throw in often and orphan for good measure). Rent the movie with Kevin Kline and Angela Lansbury, I think under the name The Pirate Movie.

Hittin? See you never graduated grammar school.

It's HITTING, you dam backwoods redneck Floridian!

A fb friend posted her son holding a diploma for graduating first grade. Really? Is that what we're doing now? Giving diplomas for completing the first grade? Think that's the most ridiculous thing ever. People were posting things like "Congratulations!" and "So happy for him!"

I SO had to bite my tongue.

Can't have people thinking I'm a jerk... But seriously, that's just BEYOND stupid.
