TGIF and all that

Yesterday sucked. There are days like that, waddaya gonna go.

Today however, life is sweet. The weather is horrendous, but that’s ok. Ways in which life doesn’t suck?

  • Lots of people are out of the office today, so I can actually get some work done rather than babysitting. I often think I work with a bunch of lunatics.
  • I’m going to the cottage after work for a weekend of “camping”, peeing in the great outdoors and bumming showers off friends.
  • Vodka tonics
  • Mr. Jazz is making salmon teriakyi on the BBQ for supper.
  • Supper tomorrow with friends (and I’ll be able to bum a shower beforehand)
  • Somerset Studio magazine to peruse…
  • Sunday is the U-20 world cup soccer final. Czech Republic against Argentina*.
  • I might be going back to 1001 Pots this weekend, just to soak in the loveliness of all that pottery.

* I’m guessing no one is following the U-20, right? Or even knows it’s being played? Or cares? Yesterday’s semi between Argentina and Chile was nasty. The ref had it in for Chile for some reason. Argentina would probably have won anyway, they were the stronger team, but damn, that ref needs to be shot.

Camping? HA!

How's the search for a place for the tank coming? Good news, I hope.

Big Brother said...

Have a good weekend lil sister. Supposed to be nice all weekend so you'll not be too wet peeing in the woods. Mind you with today's rain you could have taken your shower outside gratuit. Bar of soap, a towel, the patio and away you go. ;o)

Jocelyn said...

You do get all credit for introducing me to the term U-20.

For a bit, I thought you meant U-2, but then I thought, "Bono doesn't play soccer professionally, right?"

Enjoy it 'cause it'll be Monday before you know it. Why do the two days of the weekend go so fast and the rest of the week runs like honey from a jar?

Rhea said...

I think a good BBQ makes up for a lot of bad stuff.

geewits said...

It sounds like you are in for a great weekend! Have fun. I'm not a big salmon fan, but that's just more for you.

Fiddle Mama said...

Hi Jazz! It's Rae from the Tavern. I wanted to let you know that I tagged you in this post: Play along if you feel like it! :-)

Ian Lidster said...

I hope all your weekend pleasures manifested. Sounds like you need them, my friend.

Dan said...

Yesterday sucked but today is sweet. And so goes life, filled with surprises. And we wouldn't have it any other way, right? :)

How was your weekend camping! I just got back from Oregon. It ruled.

Voyager said...

Ha! We followed the U-20. Great final yesterday. We listened to it on the radio while painting the kitchen. Because it poured rain all freakin weekend.

Evil Spock said...

I'm craving a vodka tonic right now.. .

Did you use cedar planks for the salmon? I rarely use the grill for fish, but I use an indoor grill pan to cook inside. I smoke up the house awful bad.

hope you had a good weekend

Josie said...

That looks like a great magazine. I had never heard of it before. I love perusing arts and crafts magazines.

I haven't decided on wether or not my today sucks yet or not. I only just crawled out of bed. And it's not even noon. Shocking.

Jazz said...

Tick - things are proceeding. Slowly.

BB - Shaddap! Where were you yesterday? I was offering you Indian for supper and all I got was an answering machine... tsk tsk.

Jocelyn - No, what Bono does professionally is annoy people for not giving enough and then moving to a tax haven because it costs too much to be a gazillionaire in Ireland.

POP - I took Monday off. Nyaahh nyahh

Rhea - You are right on the money there.

Geewits - Actually it WAS a pretty amazing weekend.

Fiddle Mom - I'll do the tag. I'm feeling rather brain dead today, so it's an easy solution. Plus everyone wants to know more about my little life, eh?

Ian - Manifestation was attained, though I would have liked for the Czech Republic to win the U-20. But I wasn't emotional about this one like when France was in the last World Cup final. And lost...

Dan - I want to run away to Oregon now.

Evil Spock - Vodka tonic. Mmmm... Nope, haven't tried the cedar planks but I will very soon.

Voyager - I am not alone!!!

Toast - Lovely weekend.

Josie - Somerset is great. I usually get it at Chapters or Indigo as soon as it comes out otherwise it disappears really quickly.

Chooch - Go fry something, it'll make you feel better.
