Wine party tonight was originally come as you are, cool and casual, bring your swimsuit. Just received a missive that the attire is now "cocktail". I don't exactly own cocktail wear, and I can't wear anything but walking shoes b/c my foot is fried. Go and be the odd man out or beg off?
This weekend I am invited to a wine and cheese party. Invitees have been instructed to 'bring a bottle to drink, a bottle to taste, and a cheese or fruit tray. If you bring a bottle to taste and your bottle is chosen as best you will win a wine basket. Does this seem weird to anyone else?
Video bouncing around FB bugs me. Its a woman holding a 6mo-ish baby while a man applies a tattoo to his inner arm. I dont speak the language in the video so I've no idea if there was a reason or if its just craziness but the number of folks here who say getting shots for their kids is hard I have trouble believing this woman has
Every weekend I put in 12-16 hours on glass work. In just over a month (4 weekends) I have a local bead show that I'm (foolishly?) depending on to help pay for the sewar connections and septic demolition. From here forward I'll be adding three nights a week to the glass work schedule. If you need me I'll be in the garage.
PSA: I've had a few people mention to me that DM isnt showing up (and I've enocountered the same thing recently) so you might want to check you DMs today just in case. This PSA brought to you by tiny whale beads :-)
In about a month I have a bead show and I'm struggling to come up with 'new' things. Many of the 'cute' beads I make are 3D and in my opinion more collectible than wearable so this weekend I worked on the wearable aspect and came up with these bears which should lay flat. Yea or Nay? Also, owls and penguins because I can :-)
The dinner fairy whiffed. I'm going to be forced to cook something but for the life of me I don't know what. The only meat in the house is frozen chicken wings, we are out of pasta, there are two red potatoes, cans of corn and tomatoes, frozen green beans, and tortilla chips. veggie nachos?
Dinner with friends last night (who am I to turn it down when they are buying??). Waiter takes our drink order and I ask for a Cosmo. "What's in that?" he asked. I told him vodka, triple sec and cranberry. "What's triple sec?" he says. "I'll have an ice tea", I replied.
Lady whipped into our parking lot in a GMC Yukon that she cant park straight. Fiddled with her hair a bit then got out with her dog and walked him around in our grass - yes he pooped. She is now cleaning out her truck and tossing the trash into our parking lot .... I'm having trouble staying in my seat.
As my mother's Grandparents, great aunts/uncles, and father have passed away all of their money had funneled toward my Grandmother. Now that my Grandmother has passed it has been split four ways between her children. My mother is actually on the phone with me right now complaning that she now has TOO MUCH! *bangs head on desk*
Two hours into Monday and I've completed the office janitorial (bathrooms, floors, garbage out), boxed my UPS for the day (including bead orders), and renewed our Ebay auctions for parts. I sure hope this makes the day go fast :-)
