It’s Friday! Let’s Dance!

What are you doing this weekend? It’s supposed to be hot and stormy here, so I’ll probably stay in and try to get some writing done (so, I’ll read and watch TV. I just started watched the first season of Fargo because I wanted to watch it before the second one starts–I know the stories aren’t connected, but I’m a completist–and it is SO GOOD).

    Tonight is the Rail Riders baseball game (local yankees franchise) where my choral group sings the national anthem. 🎤 Also it’s fireworks night at the stadium! 🎆🎇💥 And a blue moon! 🌝

    I have like no plans! It is amazing! Tonight I am going to go swimsuit shopping, which sounds terrible but I think it will be good. I have decided to start swimming laps as a regular workout, so I need a boring old school athletic one piece. I need a new beach suit too.

      Apparently thats when my computer decided I was done with my comment. There was going to be more, but instead…dance!

        You know, I’ve always meant to ask. Are you related to the famous ventless convection oven?

        • taoreader says:

          It looks so sad!

        • Sota says:

          Hahaha amazing. Yes! We are related. Isn’t it super embarrassing when one family member gets all the good looks? I have always been jealous of Sota the Oven. At family reunions she is always the life of the party and brings the best snacks.

          AND it can cook a frozen pizza in under 3 minutes. I tell you what. Touchy SOB though–I just barely brushed against it when it had it’s mouth open, and boy did I get burned.

    On Sunday I head to St. Louis for my second conference of the summer! I’ve never been to St. Louis, but I hear it’s slightly terrifying. But I’m from Detroit so I can handle myself, thank you. My hotel is right by the Arch, so I’ll probably head there in the afternoon!

    • taoreader says:

      I lived in St. Louis for almost four years. I liked it. If you know Detroit, then this will be a piece of cake. And the arch is actually in a beautiful spot and surprisingly fun.

      • flanny says:

        I’m a little bit afraid of actually going up in the Arch, but I might hit up the Old Courthouse. And I’m going to have the fried ravioli. Any other recs?

        • hotspur says:

          My dad advised his cousin to visit the arch a few months ago and later the cousin raved about how that was totally the right move. (I have no idea when my dad was ever in St. Louis.)

        • artdorkgirl says:

          Do not get convinced to eat St. Louis style pizza. It is an abomination. They put this weird faux-cheese on it.

          Other than that, the City Museum of St. Louis is a lot of fun! I highly recommend it. You can also go gambling on a riverboat, if that seems like something you want to do!

        • flanny says:

          That pizza is the pizza of my nightmares.

        • taoreader says:

          Ditto everyone on the pizza. Fo you’re a frozen custard fan, Ted Drewes is famous for it and everyone who’s anyone goes there:

          If you skip the arch, go to the museum underneath it. It explains the history of the Lewis and Clark expedition, and you can see a film about how the arch was made.

          The art museum is good. Their science museum is excellent, better than Boston’s.

          Forest Park, kind of like New York’s central park only less landscaped, is right in the city and well worth a walk or at least a drive through. It’s beautiful. Hot this time of year, but worth it. It’s also where you can find the art museum (free), science museum (free), Missouri History Museum (free), and the Muny, which is a big outdoor theatre. St. Louis City believes in accessibility to art and subsidizes the museums. It was freakin’ awesome when I was a poor grad student.

          The central west end is known for shops and good restaurants. Washington University is a beautiful campus and good for a stroll if you like that kind of thing (I went to grad school there).

          Oh–if you like gardens definitely go to the botanical gardens there! The Japanese garden in particular is gorgeous.

    Celebrating my birthday with a lot of alcohol, and also getting the house ready for the realtor to take pictures, and also working on my 45-page paper I have to write to finish my MBA, and also working on work stuff because I have a giant project coming up in a few weeks that I have to be prepared for. So there’s probably no time for alcohol, but I’m drinking anyway!

  5. catweazle says:

    Tomorrow I am going to my little sister’s birthday party at which I will get to meet her cat Lady Gregory for the first time and watch Clueless on her projector (wall-sized Paul Rudd, yes please!). Also I get to give her her amazing presents: two different Taylor Swift perfumes that smell like vanilla extract that I got for like 90% off at Target, snarky magnetic poetry and a Catbus stuffed animal.

    I traded shifts with my coworker for a few days so I’ve been coming in at 7AM which sucks but also means I get to go home in the middle of the afternoon. So tonight my plan is that I will use my extra time to clean my apartment or bake, but in reality I will probably just watch 12 episodes of Friends while playing Candy Crush before I finally fall asleep on my couch.

  6. welcometocostcoiloveyou says:

    Wednesday night I saw Laura Marling, and Thursday night I had dinner with a friend from college. I This weekend I am working an event (one of our biggest of the year), going out to brunch with my best pal, celebrating Mr. Costco’s birthday, and I am hell bent on deep cleaning the house. I usually have nothing to do, so this is bizarro week/weekend.

  7. old man fatima says:

    Tonight I am having people over for board games, tomorrow afternoon I am visiting my friend’s new puppy (and also my friend, but you know where my loyalties lie) and then taking Mr. Fatima’s sister to the airport and then we’re ditching my parents to have a date night because it will have been 3 weeks since we had any alone time. Sunday we’re coming back to reality to help my folks do work on my house and Monday is a holiday so we’ll all be watching the parade and fireworks and it’s also buskerfest! Phew!

  8. taoreader says:

    Trying to put together a rock band party for tomorrow night. Girls just wanna have fun, people.

    I’m finishing up my last lecture for the summer session! WOOOHOOOO!!!! Then I need to pull together my crap for the fall semester! BOOOOOO. I did find out about another job in Chicago (monsters??) but I’m not sure if I’ll apply for it yet. I’m also having application fears about the one I sent in earlier this week. Should I have attached a different writing sample? Did I play up my interest in print culture enough?? AAAACKKKK

  10. Tonight I am going to a friend’s house to watch the first few episodes of Wet Hot American Summer and then tomorrow is the first day of this massive, weeklong scavenger hunt that some of you may remember being harassed about last year (and should prepare to be harassed again about this year) I’m pretty pumped for all of it!!

  12. Guys I forgot the most important detail in the Your Hometown post! There is a store in my hometown (a gas station/convenience deal, one of two stores, total. The other one is also a gas station/convenience deal). Its name is The Store.
