wow wow wow that house in Overland Park! Bananas!!!!
@VelourFog Ask if you can make a dish, like a side or a dessert? If not, flowers in a vase (you can usually find those at Marshalls/TJMaxx/Homegoods for $4-10)!
@pterodactylish oh no! I hope you're on the mend soon!!
Welcome back, Mike Dang! Tonight: going to a friend's party. Hostess gift is a pie I made last night. Saturday: lounging. Reading. Laundering my clothes. Running. All free. Sunday: hiking with a friend (free) but entry to the park is $5, I think. May get gas while out and about ($20) and will probably pick up a few groceries ($20). ETA: oh, who am I kidding? I'll definitely get food out at some point, so $20. Total: $65. I really need a low spend weekend so I hope I can make this stick!
@EmilyAnomaly I think the "off-brand spaghettios" is what really cements this as a terrible working holiday.
I ran the meeting that I've been dreading all week earlier today. It went really well! That was my one thing, and now I'm just coasting through this afternoon until I can go home and make pies!
@Allison Yep, basically the shoulder blades. Picture a horse: it's the point where the topside of their neck meets their back.
@Tripleoxer @RiffRandell Right?! I was LOLing listening to that yesterday on the radio. They also failed to mention the big subset of folks like me and a whole bundle of others I know who ride other people's ponies for them, hence getting the horsey time without the horsey costs.
Wouldn't have been much help on Saturday night, but libraries usually have plenty of DVDs, especially of popular classics like Star Wars. So there's hope for you to see it yet!
@PicNic oh girl, we all have those happy hours that get away from us. Sounds like a fun weekend.
