What are you up to this weekend? I have NO plans, and I’m so excited.
I just had to spend $500 on my car, but I’m glad I can now reverse without my car shaking. Apparently the engine mounts were bad. Now that that is out of the way, I have to work and do laundry! Exciting stuff!
I am planning to meet a friend for brunch, so I am looking forward to that!
Have a mimosa for me!
I have a nerd day scheduled for Saturday, the monthly powwow with gamer friends. I am supposedly in charge of running things, so tonight I have to figure out what we’re doing. I’ve grown to hate the sessions where I’m in charge — I’d rather just show up and be entertained.
But Sunday, I can do whatever I want, no responsibilities! (I have to write about vampires. Partial responsibility.)
Gamer friends! Actual gaming or talking about gaming? Do you guys play Skyrim? Have you seen the Morrowind trailer?
tl;dr I’m a nerd
We do various board games. Lords of Waterdeep, Caverna, Ticket to Ride, things like that. Plus RPGs. I’d like to run a Paranoia, but there’s no chance I can get it together for tomorrow.
No plans tomorrow except get ready for the week ahead. Sunday my parents arrive and we go to the soccer game. Monday we get to relax a little bit and then Tuesday is baby day! So no dancing for me today because I’m fully pregnant. Too pregnant even.
We’re recording two episodes of the podcast tonight PLUS my cohost’s fiance is going to be our very first guest. Exciting! I just found out that one of my coworkers is getting promoted into a position I was hoping for and that I kind of think I would be better at but he has more seniority and is also awesome so I don’t begrudge him it at all. But I am sad that I don’t get the extra money.
On the bright side I just found out that Juliana Hatfield is playing here on Monday. Usually I would rather die than go out on a Monday night especially since it interferes with my laundry schedule and also Monday will be a shitshow at work, but I’ve been a fan of her for over 15 years and have never seen her live. I’m so excited!
I’m meeting my little baby niece for the first time tomorrow morning. And since I don’t like babies, I am only seeing her for an hour and then I’m meeting a friend in Detroit for lunch and independent book store shopping and then dinner. Sunday is supposed to be a complete wash out, so maybe I’ll get the new vacuum cleaner out again.
Oh, and Harry Styles’ solo tour tickets go on sale next Friday, but I don’t know if I’ll go because all the ones I could posisbly go to are in the middle of the week. What should I doooooooo?
Girl, follow your dreams, and go to the concert! Mini vacation!
If you want I can go play with the baby for you and you can go shopping!
No, no, I want her to know me so when she starts being fun I won’t be a stranger.
I will just wear a mask of your face then.
This is a perfect plan do not try to improve on this because you cannot!
An hour with the baby then giving her back is perfect niece time.
They just don’t do much, says the woman who watched her cat sleep for half an hour yesterday.
Don’t really have any plans except for catching up on writing, walking/playing with dog, tidying the house, hopefully a nap or two. Going to a big writers/publishers conference next week so gonna take it easy this weekend. Those conferences wear me out, even when they’re fun.
At 1:30 am I finally finished a project that’s been hanging over my head so I don’t have any work to do or procrastinate doing this weekend for the first time in a long time! Sunday afternoon I have a birthday happy hour to attend and otherwise I’m open.
I discovered yesterday that Keanu is working on a TV project called John Rain, apparently it’s based on a book series about an assassin. I’m dying to see him on my TV regularly, but it’s a little weird to go from John Wick assassin to John Rain assassin. But! The JW writer and director are involved as well so this series is going to be amazing and I can’t wait! I have the books on hold at the library.
They should at least change the name from John. How about Chas. Rain? Or Findley Rain. Uriah Rain? MIX IT UP, HOLLYWOOD. Also instead of assassin, he could work in retail.
I think you’re on to something here.
It is pretty weird that they’re going with such a similar name. Like…just pick another one. Any other man’s name!
I am just going to hang out reading tweets about Fyre Festival because honestly it’s cracking me up.
From Rolling Stone:
In early March, former Saturday Night Live talent associate Chloe Gordon traveled to the Bahamas to tour the site as a producer hired to work with the talent. “It was about two months out, and it was a mess,” she says, adding that she quit after returning to New York. “They had already, when we got down there, hired and fired two full production teams. And they hadn’t started planning anything. They basically just fired everyone along the way that told them it wasn’t feasible.”
Something about the packs of feral dogs are what takes it from unfortunate shitshow to hilarious for me.
I just read about this and YIKES. The lawsuits should be interesting.
I just saw that AV Club has given the first 3 episodes of the Handmaid’s Tale show good grades. I’ve never read the book, and I don’t have Hulu, but now I want to see it!
Should I read the book first?
I don’t feel like driving to the bookstore or waiting for shipping, so Hulu it is!
I really want to watch because I hear it’s amazing, but I know it’s going to be devastating/infuriating and I’m not sure if I want to deal with that right now.
