My niece's baby shower is on sunday, and it's kind of a pot luck kind of thing.
People already signed up for veggie/fruit platters, spinich dip, ice cream cake, and salsa/chips.
I considered making cupcakes, but it's going to be hot, too hot for chocolate.
The other thing I thought of was Bruschetta, but someone was like "but we already have someone bring salsa" and I replied "yeah, so?"
Anyway, should I just go ahead with the bruschetta, or do you have any ideas for some other little thing I could bring?
I'm going to see a Grateful Dead cover band tomorrow. Then on Sunday I'm going to a cook out.
Let me tell you about the cookout. We were asked if we wanted to go at a wedding we attended. We said sure. They said we'll send you an invite. So, the GF gets a facebook invite that says it's a "benefit" in which "donations" will be accepted. Is that F'd up or what? Invite someone to a BBQ and then hit em up for money. RUDE!
The Orange County Fair starts this weekend but I think I'm going to wait a week or two.
Tonight I'm supposed to go out to dinner with a "friend" from brownies when I was like ... oh, 7 or so, and I haven't seen in... oh, 30 years or so. That should be interesting. The weather here is WEIRd. It has been raining since yesterday at about 5.
It is funny because every time I see ( The Orange County Fair )I think of the one in New York State because they one also at a Dirt Race track I went to since as a little kid. And I was with my friends that did some Dirt racing also back in the day ! GOOD TIMES!!!!
Tomorrow my girls and I are going to do a little clothes shopping.
My friend who just broke up with her boyfriend invited me out for drinks tomorrow evening. I have a feeling once I meet her at her house she's going to pull the old bait and switch by asking me to be DD. She pulled that last night with our other friend she invited before other friend told her she has plans to see Roger Waters.
I have two reasons I might back out. That and if she invited another girl, who I like, but when those two get together it's like two sorority girls who never had a drink in their life. I refuse to babysit them.
I'll probably just stay home and wash my hair.
Actually, the highest murder rate per capita is Philly but Reading is bad too. There were two murders in a span of a few weeks a few blocks from Autumn's boxing gym and I drive into there five nights a week. It makes me really nervous too because sometimes the students (fighters?) will run laps around the block or run from the gym up to the Pagoda.
We're actually going the opposite way to do some clothes shopping.
So, this friend that I haven't seen since I was 9 or whatever.... She lives in Wyoming or something. She doesn't work. She was pretty insistant about meeting up when she was here in Cali. Ok, if it's that important to you. Now she's kind of jerking me around with plans and it's pissing me off. She was supposed to be here Weds through Friday, so I texted her Tuesday to see what was up. She said she'll be here Friday through Saturday, going to Disneyland Saturday. Ok, well I am not going to Disneyland on a Saturday in the summer, no way. Besides I spend time with my BF on saturday who I usually don't get to see during the week much, if at all. So I tell her let's meet up for dinner Friday night. She says, ok, I'll text you when I leave (city in cetral Cali that is like 5 hours away). So about an hour ago I realized I hadn't heard from her, and if she's going to make it down here before midnight she should have left by now. So is she coming or what? I'm kind of pissed because I feel like people who don't have jobs aren't always considerate of people's time who DO have to work. Plus, WTF lady, this was your idea. I'm about ready to unfriend her and pretend like this whole thing never happened.
So now it's after 4 PM here, I texted her about half an hour ago and still haven't heard back.
I am at the SD airport waiting to board. I bought my 6yo niece this cute little tie dye monkey in a gift shop and shoved it in my laptop bag. About 5 minutes later I had this nagging feeling that something was amiss but I couldn't figure out what.
DING! The monkey has MAGNETS in its paws! I whipped that puppy outta my laptop bag at record speed. Good news it my lap top is fine... see?
