Couple of thoughts

First of all, I had some fun on Thursday. I had a few errands to do after work. I am in an incredibly good mood, so I kinda went everywhere with a grin on my face. Ok, it may have been smirk-ish. But definitely a smile type thing. People really do look at you like you have a secret when you walk around with a smile on your face. I'm going to try it more often. Not because I'll be happier more often, more to watch the reactions of others. Secondly, one of my errands tonight was to get a pedicure. I was feeling very happy. And very daring. My toes are a color called Just Groovy. It's a lovely bright sky blue. Hell yes. Next, a pet peeve of mine came to light today from an unexpected source. Let me just say this: I will have intelligent conversation with just about anyone about just about anything. HOWEVER. Please know what the fack you are talking about. It's cool to have a difference of opinion - keeps things interesting. BUT you need to have an informed opinion. Please don't just spit at me this morning's biased headlines (often inaccurate, as was the case with today's conversation). If you feel strongly about something, care enough about it to do a little research. Don't just spout off some b.s. soundbite you heard somewhere. I expect people to be able to back up what they are saying. Finally, in about 24 hours I am off on a North Woods vacation with two of my most favorite people (duh, Shannon and TheMarty) and 5 of his closest friends. 5 complete strangers. I am excited and a little nervous. I know for a fact I won't be able to sleep tonight. Which is good, because I am being picked up to start this little adventure at an un-Godly hour.

have fun in the North Woods

And try not to think of all the cannibals that Wisconsin seems to breed....

But come to think of it, it might be coupled to that cheese thing....

5 strangers?

Sounds like a feckin' dream come true to me.

Pack some OPI in case the pedi gets messed up, a ton of Maibock and sh#t load of condoms!

Don't do anything AG wouldn't. Especially since AG is having M.D. phone sex tonight!!!!!!!!!!!

You get strange looks for smiling? That's sad.

Have a fun weekend in the woods.

MenD - Ha ha, no shit. I can handle it, I'm nothing if not flexible. AG, you are a kindred spirit. Jenn - first off, welcome! Secondly, yes. Perhaps my smile is a little disconcerting? Not sure....continuing smiling a lot though, we'll see if the strangers keep giving the odd looks.
Ok, now to write the weekend in reveiw.....

I will happily recompense with breakfast. I do some mean hashbrowns, or so I've been told.

When I went to visit an old roommate in Europe he insisted I make breakfast for him and a few of his roommates. Behold the power of potatoes...
