Weekend Recap

Well the blogosphere is boring today. It just seems like no one is doing anything fun. They just talk and talk. Give me a story people! Paul at least put up pics from an evening of drinking. He talked about some dude named Ish who was obnoxiously drunk. That was interesting. Why don’t other people understand that? We want to read interesting things. I don’t care about you cleaning your A/C ducts. You are boring us. And if you are boring, you suck. End of story.

Ok, now that I’m done with that, how are you doing? I spent most of my weekend trying not to be the main entertainment for a 7 year old. Yeah, my cousin was back at the lake with us this weekend. I had a good time, but I really don’t like spending my precious free time entertaining a 7 year old.
So Friday after work, the brother and I left the office and headed to Arkansas. Before we were out of the city we saw this minivan. It had spinners on the driver's side but not on the passenger. The passenger side only had regular hubcaps (maybe he's waiting for this month's welfare check to get here). Check out the pic. I think we need a press conference to tell this guy how much of a pimp he is.

We picked up beer and booze at Porter’s Liquor in Augusta, AR. That’s the last stop for beer on the way there. He got a 4 pack of San Salvador’s premixed margaritas (or ‘road pops’ as we call them). I saw that they had a new mango flavored style. I love mangos. I love margaritas. How could this go wrong? It was a weird kinda sweet. Too much of a “fru-fru chick drink” for me. It got better the more I drank, but I just didn’t really like it enough to get it another time. Next time, I stick with the tried and true regular margarita. We got to the house and started grilling hot dogs and burgers. We stayed up drinking and watching the Three Stooges.
Saturday we went on the water, tubed, and then went in to hang out and start dinner. We had steak, grilled bbq chicken, twice baked potatoes, fried green tomatoes with a remoulade sauce, tomatoes with basil & gorgonzola cheese, and fresh watermelon. We had several bottles of wine among everyone. After everyone went to bed, Dad, the brother, and I stayed up to watch Casablanca. Always a great movie.
Sunday, the grandparents and cousin left early. I decided to come home earlier rather than around sunset. I’m glad I did, because Dr. JR called me to invite over to hang out by the pool at his place and eat some fish. Hmm…fish…pool…beer? I’ll be there. I headed over to find two dogs, one doctor, and no one else. I thought it was going to be a party, but it turned out to be just us, and another guy with his wife and daughter. We had pan seared grouper with jerk sauce in fish tacos and a grilled grouper. It was too damn good. So after plenty of fish and a 6 pack of Bud Light. I headed home.

So that was the weekend. Remember there are a few functions coming up this week and weekend to check out:

I've got to agree with you... the internet has started off slowly this week!

Frank Garrison said...

You should add Cars - "All I Can Do"

Angie - I don't think it's just this week. It's been the last few. Save for a few blogs everyone is either hiding details, talking about boring shit, or just turning into losers. I want some action and excitement or I'll stop reading those blogs.

Frank - I don't have that. I'll have to order it. I did hear the new song by The New Cars last night. Pretty good. Sounds like their old stuff.

MG said...

yeah, I'm with you on mango margaritas, ehh...

sounds like a decent weekend.

gee... you're bored with me already?
hmmm.

Philip said...

MG - not yet. You tend to stay interesting. EVEN THOUGH I can bet that I'll hear about " *HIM* " at least twice a week. But not knowing who " *HIM* " is keeps me on my toes.
