Charlie's Soap

What I did this weekend, By Busy Mom.

Well, hi there.

Remember me?

Yeah, at the risk of using the "b" word, cementing my position as a stereotype, I'll just say I've had a lot going on.

That, and, Comcast is making it very hard to use the Internets at my house, lately.

Remind me to tell you about the Comcastic advice I received from them when I pointed out that I indeed, can only access the Internet, oh, say 1 out of 5 attempts, and, when you are lucky enough to receive an IP address from them, it doesn't hang around long.

Anyway, our last episode had me waiting on the floor in the Kansas City airport.

Flying Southwest makes me nervous, I would much rather have an assigned seat.

However, I had drawn my first "A" group boarding pass EV-ER in my life, so, I was going to take full advantage of it.

I may have possibly done a little dance in the Hyatt lobby when I printed it at the little boarding pass printing kiosk thingy.

I mean, if I was in the first group, and, all, I was going to make sure I got in the front.

It's also occurred to me that I never said why I was in Kansas City.

I was privileged enough to visit the Hallmark Headquarters (they rock), and, if I ever get more than 2 consecutive minutes at a time, I'll tell you all about it at GenBetween.

I met some great new blogger friends, and, I'll introduce you when I can get it written up.

I got home Thursday night, and, I took Friday off to "get things done", and, well we all know how that turns out.

The highlight of the day was a trip to the ER with Busy D. who sliced his hand open in a scooter accident.

OK, perhaps the highlight might have been getting my hair colored. Finally. But, you probably care more about Busy D.

He's fine, they actually were able to glue him back together.

Hmm. The last time I intentionally took a day off to "get things done", he ended up in the ER when we thought he broke his arm.

Saturday was busy, but, a lot of fun.

We went to the football game with the Four Lads n' Me (real life friend, sometimes reader, rare commenter) family. A lovely, if cool-ish day.

Speaking of the game, did any of you here in town go? What in the world is up with that Acid Trip Commodore? The inflatable one? That is the stuff of nightmares.

Last night was Brittney's birthday, and, going away party.

A good time was had by all, but, no one seemed to have as much fun as Jeff Spicoli, our waiter.

Because, well, you know, if you serve, oh, say 85% of the food orders, and one of the Diet Coke orders, that's pretty good. It's even a "B" in some places.

Anyway, this is starting to sound like a "What I Had for Lunch" post, so, I'll shut up, and, get back to the Monday grind.

Hey- we ER'd also! But I didn't get to color my hair, so I guess I am a big loser, with roots.

I wish I had gone to any game. I have had a small child attached to my hip for the last week (2 different ones) because of high fever. So of course nothing got done. Such a joy after 6 people just left and I really need to catch up. At least you were out of town! I would dig that about now...

Posted by: Kendra | October 29, 2007 11:15 AM nailed it...the waiter was Jeff Spicoli spot on!

It was SO great to finally meet you in person! We must all get together again soon.

Ugh, I'm a Hokie and we had an inflatable mascot at Thursday's game, too. Even though its a mascot for my own team, I still want to shoot it with a beebee gun.

I meant to say something about your hair looking great.

That waiter was horrendous.

I never got my Coke and I still haven't had one. Am making due with Cherry Coke zero (not the same, but alas, no calories).

@EG - I'm a Hokie, too but I missed the inflatable bird. I think I'm with you though, inflatable just means it needs to be popped!

In the fragile mental state which is you right now, I'd suggest an affair with a poor man. This way, when your husband kills him, taxes can chase cat tails.

That was the tastiest Diet Coke I've ever had.

I never got my entree (or charged for it). I kinda like it, because I really didn't need mexican food anyway. The La Paz diet -- it's all the rage. All the satisfaction of ordering food, none of the weight-gain from actually getting it!
