Abbot and Nobody

Yesterday I was trying to tell Brian that I heard a Bjork song that wasn’t weird, and that, in turn, made it weird.

The conversation got silly and confusing, so he threw in “Who’s on first?”

I said “I don’t know.”

And he didn’t say “Third base!”

And he says he didn’t leave me hanging. Which, clearly, he did. Don’t you agree?

Weekend Recap

We took Noelle to a birthday party Saturday morning. It was at a place with a room full of those Jupiter Jump things. She had so much fun and completely wore herself out. We’re definitely having her next birthday party there, that place was fantastic! They take care of everything so the parents can actually relax & enjoy the party too. Big pat on the back to whoever thought of opening that place.

I went to a wedding reception for my friend Matt on Saturday afternoon (he’s who I traveled to see take the plunge about three weeks ago) and met up with an old friend from high school there. It was a blast seeing her again & hopefully we’ll keep in touch. It was like there hadn’t been one day since the last time we saw each other. I love those kinds of friends.

Yesterday we went with some friends to eat at the “new Casa Bonita” – Casa Viva. The kids had fun I think. The food was exactly the same. Not stellar, but I didn’t spit it out either. I don’t think that’s the reason people go there anyway. It’s got to be the fake thunderstorm & bird noises coming from behind the blindingly colorful walls. It’s certainly not for the merry-go-round anymore since they took it out. Eh – I could take it or leave it.

After lunch, Noelle & I went to my parents’ house because my favorite sister was in town. We didn’t have a very long visit because she had to get on the road, but we’ll take what we can get when she’s here! We went home at about seven & played for a little while before getting Noelle into bed. Then Brian & I had ice cream for dinner and watched some tv before I started nodding off & had to go to bed myself.

When I got up this morning, Brian had done the dishes, cleaned out the fridge, and put gas in my car. I’ve got to remember to thank him for all of that. He’s the best!

And now here I am back at work. Lovely Monday. But I’ve got drunko tonight to look forward to. Yay!

Hope everyone else had a great weekend!
