Weekend ReCap

Friday

Lunch @ Victors Yummy:)

Went to a BBQ in Maple Grove and proved definitively that I am the flippy cup master.


Saturday

Remembered why I quit playing flippy cup.

Read The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, by Junot Diaz. It was good all around, should it have won the Pulitzer? Probably not. The notes in the beginning were distracting from the text but I understood there point in the overall narrative. I would def. wait for paperback.

Watched The Good Night. It was just ok I usually like this type of humor and subject matter it is about dreaming and being able to control them but I was kind of detached from the movie perhaps cause I had a splitting headache and the wost hang over of my life.



Watched Some Twins. Too bad they went down

Drank Some Beers at Brits then off to Spin for a Birthday.


Sunday

Dug dirt, made a hill. The goal is to put in an above ground pool that I will lay around in all summer.

Went to another yummy BBQ

You're going to build a pool on a hill?

as the dream killer, do not underestimate the amount of time and work involved in maintaining that pool ;o)

Did your pool efforts include hostas? I saw a nice arrangement of striped and regular green hostas intermixed with some gorgeous rocks and thought of on my walk yesterday.

M: I will put pictures up next week it is kind of crazy to describe.


R: You bastard. I hope it will be ok at least for the summer I got a good filter and tons of chemicals so hopefully it will work.

S. It did include breaking up some hosta but then on a change of a whim I desided I didn't like the brink work and tore it all up. I will have to finish the finishing touchs next weekend..that is if it doesn't get flooded out too bad this week

I was going to post a witty comment but then I saw

"put in above ground pool" and they scattered from my brain. All that was left was...

Huh?

I have a weird question to ask you, Brian, but I figured I'd give it a try: Which do you like better, titties or beer?

Ma said...

next time you lunch @ vic's - punch the cook in the face will ya?!

Brian in Mpls said...

Thomas: Titties any day of the week

Ma: Who is cooking down there now?
