She's probably sedated. Maybe a medically induced coma.

Thursday- who knows

Friday- working, which is fine because otherwise I wouldn't get paid.

Saturday- me and my sis are going to Cedar Point in Ohio and visiting our friend out there (who happens to be a flaming gay man for those of you who for some reason think I'm a homophobe.)

Thur: Hopefully the beach during the day. The weather here has been anything but beach-friendly lately so we're sorta chomping at the bit. Lulu thinks we should spend the whole day there (including lunch and dinner) in preparation for the fireworks. We'll see about that...

Fri: Hopefully back to the beach for awhile and some light chores around the house. The bathroom is starting to look a little scary...

Sat: Art fair! I shall try not to spend too much money, but this one has some really excellent stuff.

Sun: I might go to church with the girls; they do lakefront services in the summer so I can just tune out and enjoy some nature. Dickie has rehearsal all afternoon, so I'm guessing we'll end up back at the beach if it's nice.

Do they do fireworks on the 3rd or 4th?

The suburb just north of you does them as well- do you watch both nights?

Which art fair?

They only do it on the 4th. We're too lazy to go anywhere else, since the kids usually fall asleep anyway. I think this year we're going to borrow the wagon from the in-law's for Nunu; she's a b!tch to wake up and too heavy to carry!

We can usually see some Chicago's display from our beach, so we sorta get two shows in one.

Fountain Square in downtown Evanston.

It is a slow day.
Try this one- kangaroo detecting radar

If they can do that, why can't they do deer detection so it will be safe to drive near the forest preserves again?

I have been going to the gym near there. Fountain Square is a construction zone with a large crane in the middle at the moment- I will make a point of checking it out though.

It would be way cool if they hung some art pieces from the boom of the crane

(I like the beer place on the nose of the square( it is 5 streets coming together with a long needle triangle shaped tip with a fountain in it)- it is byo food. We stop at Whole foods for cheese and crackers and chips and go over there occasionally.)

Sewing reminds me of this...

Sewing The Seeds of Anger
STORE | BELGIUM | AT THE CHECKOUT, CRAZY REQUESTS
(I started sewing a few years ago, and got good enough at it to make most of my clothes myself, which has resulted in a wardrobe consisting of some unusual prints. A regular customer comes up to me.)

Customer:“I love your dress! You’re always wearing such special clothes! Do tell me where you shop!”

Me:“Actually, I made this one myself. Thanks for the compliment!”

Customer:“Really? That’s great! Can you make one for me?”

Me:“Um… I have never made anything for someone else, and besides, I don’t have any of this fabric left, so I’m afraid I can’t do that!”

(The customer suddenly gets angry.)

Customer:“Now that’s just rude! Why would you do that? You’re just making pretty clothes for yourself so you can tell other people they will never have them!”

(The customer slams the money on the counter, and leaves in a huff.)

(Heh my #s are 6969)

People are f'n weird.

When I was little, that was my mom's go to excuse when I wanted her to buy me a particular clothing item. "We could make that for half the price!" "Derr, okay, Mom."

Never happened. Not once. I cleaned out her stack of sewing stuff when I was in my early 20s. There were clothes I had thrown on the pile for mending when I was 8-10 years old in there.

Yeah, I've been wondering how they're going to pull of an art fair there. They usually have the stage at the end near the fountains (where most of the construction is) so hopefully the vendors will not have to be displaced. I'll let you know...

And we have been wondering about World of Beer; maybe we'll have to make it our next date night.

4th/weekend plans:

Tomorrow: after work (a regular-length day for us), going up to A's house (an hour-ish north), her town does food trucks and fireworks on the 3rd. I'll be bringing the dogs and spending the night and hanging out by the pool during the day on the 4th before heading home.

Thursday: my local downtown 4th festivities, including watching the fireworks from the rooftop of my building.

Friday: I'm off work but planning on keeping things pretty low key for the rest of the weekend.

So guess what, guys? A started talking to her crazy ex again a couple of weeks ago so we'll be double dating this holiday. Jasper never met him (I don't remember, did we have a code name? I don't want to call him J, it's too confusing) so I'm interested in what D is going to think. Although I've sort of tainted his objectivity with stories....

We used to go all the time when we lived there, but now I haven't been there in about 20 years... And I won't be going this weekend, either :( My sister's plan was to go on FRIDAY, not Saturday. Ah well, didn't really want to go on a 4th of July weekend anyway. I'll be going to my buddy's instead, he's having a party on the lake.

I'm off for two weeks this month, thought about going then. Wanna come?
