My form of excitement is pretty pathetic when you look forward to going to work. But Im working Sat and Sunday.


Im not a real big fan of Star Wars but did see 'Empire Strikes Back' in a theater. Oh...and I saw the one with the little kid too, in some jet fighter racing event, cant remember the name of it.

Last 'adult' drink I had was a beer when we went to Hollywood to see that show, but they didnt serve Bud Lite, they gave me some type of lager stuff.

Me and my wife will be walking down to Jimmy Mak's tonight (by our house in downtown Portland), and we will be watching Blue Cranes play some sweet, sweet Jazz. Also, we will have a few drinks and possibly some food while there.

I have a lot of studying to do to catch up in my classes, and so does she, so Saturday will be a day spent studying. Saturday evening we will probably end up playing some video games and then go to sleep.

Sunday, my wife and her mother are heading to the spa for the day using a present I got them for Mother's Day. They will sit down there for a few hours while I take our son to a park in NW 23rd area of Portland. Possibly, I will take our son for a walk around and do some shopping in the area, not sure. After they are done we are heading out of snobby NW 23rd and going to SE, or possibly N Portland, to get some food.

That is all.

Last Adult Beverage I enjoyed: Aventinus Weizen-Eisbock beer

I guess relaxing fits both categories... fun and boring.. - Unless you call doing laundry fun!

Bonus Question:
In Honor of Star Wars Day

How many have seen all the Stars Wars Movies ?
4,5,6 then 1,2,3
Star Wars... that sounds like a typical Hollywood marriage!
If not how many have you seen ?
I've only seen the first one, and that was enough. I guess I'm a Trekkie (the old Star Trek crew, with captain Kirk) not a Star Warrie..

Extra Credit Question:

When does school end for the year in your City or Town ?
Hmm.. I don't know, I don't go to school anymore.. - Actually when I was in high school, we got out after the Memorial Day weekend, sometime in early June, but now it's around this time of the year.

Back when you were in school, did you go back before or after Labor Day ?
That depended on how I felt after the Labor Day weekend...

Just for Fun:

What item in your home or office could use a little spray of WD40 ?
Let's see.. my keyboard on the computer, the monitor, the CD/DVD drive, my shoes, my t-shirt, and my watch.. and maybe my elbow..

What was the last "Adult Beverage" you enjoyed ?
Hmmm.. I don't drink any.. adulterated beverages.. unless those are the kind of beverages they sell at adult stores... - Is strong coffee considered an adult beverage?

I saw episode 4 in the theater when it was first relased in 1977 and was hooked from then on! After that I saw 5 & 6 in the theaters and eventually all 3 prequels in the theater for the first time.

Prognosis is very good, and we think she will be going home tomorrow, and running races in a few weeks.
Please tell her we all are wishing her a speedy recovery and we miss her fun answers to the QOTD

Talking In Honor of Crazy Day lol

So when I posted this AM "Crazy Day" was appropriate, because I was trying to get my internet connection speed back so I could work over the weekend. Don't want to work, but who said life was fair

For the first time in memory they actually repaired it in ONE DAY! So just like that one 'word of the day' our fearless leader 'picked' and then the road from my house was closed, today she made it Crazy Day and it happened.

Karla are you telepathic or something OK done babbling and back to my 24 hour hold though in CD land could be 3 hours and the hounds will be released LOL
