A Saturday to Remember !!

This was one of the best weekends I've spent in a long time. It was productive and entertaining and eventful. That combination is always either very good or very bad for you. It was great!!

Went to Lowe's and got some supplies for the home. Being a new homeowner brings these joys and Lowe's is my second home. Some bulbs, two bags of water softener salt and an electrical receptacle were purchased and I was on my merry way. The library was my next stop where I had to deal with evil and nasty looks from the librarian because the books were 10 days late. Why do librarians look like that? They look so forlorn, ready to eat you like sushi and very upset that they are librarians. Sometimes I feel it's a government conspiracy. Maybe first time crooks and rookie criminals get punished by the federal government by making them librarians. That's a "light" punishment for them but a heavy one for the patrons of the library!!

Anyway, I escaped before the librarian could disintegrate me with her looks. Next stop, Sears, for a water filter replacement for our refrigerator. Then some work at home. Noddy was distracted twice by phone calls and other irrelevant things while she was cooking. So TWICE I had to clean the cooking range before the smoke alarm went off, because whatever she was cooking had spilled over. Not her fault but I cursed the cooking range nonetheless. You've got to curse something if it ends up being nobody's fault. We've got one of those flat top ranges, so cleaning also means scrubbing hard to make it look shiny like before.

Evening was the best part. We went to Applebee's. Noddy ordered herself a margharita and I got Michelob Lite ( I now hate that beer !! What a tasteless, bland, watered down waste of money). Now, Noddy is not a drinker. Yet this big and potent margharita got her light headed. So we had an absolute great time over there because we kept laughing at each other and at everyone else there, hoping we'd get thrown out and wouldn't have to pay the bill. We got back home to even more fun. I turned on the laptop, connected to Yahoo Launchcast audio service and we were off dancing on really good music with mood lighting. By the end of all this dancing Noddy's light headedness is gone and we're back to our quiescent state d'affaires.

Good night !! See u tomaaarow ....

You can't expect anything that calles itself lite beer to have any taste. That's just the way it is.

Glad to hear you had a great weekend!

P.S.
I think the Librarian "look" is something that's learned. ;)
