May 2009 Archives

May 1, 2009


Got a call from the Squid last night. She is coming down for pretty much the whole Summer this year, and wants to get a job. Totally all for that, am I. The problem is her age. At only 15, not very many places will be willing to hire her. And of course, there are not a great lot of jobs to be had since the economy is in the crapper.

But I am going to see what I can do. I have about a month. It would serve a two-fold purpose.
1) She would get some extra spending money
2) She wouldn't be stuck at the house all day all Summer.

Got some free tickets tot he Rangers game on Sunday. We'll be in foul ball territory and ESPN will be showing the game. Will I be on TV? doubtful. Unless I get beaned by a ball because Im not watching the game. Do I want to be on TV? Definitely not.

Ugly dog

I got a message from Ninsi today who had gone home at lunch to check on the dogs. Basically, Toby, the new dog, is in an awkward part of his growth. He's doubled in size since we got him, and most of that appears to be in his ears and snout.

His head needs to grow a bit to catch up. Ninsi is afraid he will not grow into himself and ultimately be an awkward, ugly dog. Will she love him less if he's an ugly dog? He won't be a Satchmo, so it's hard to say.

We attended the Ren Faire over the weekend. Was down there for about six hours, which I think is the longest I have ever spent there in one day. And it appears we may be going back in three weeks. Because I guess that is what we do.

Somehow every weekend of this month except the last one has something planned for us. I dont know how I feel about that. I need to figure a way to plan more things that involve me getting free drinks. Then at least I would know how to feel about the event.

I'll start working on that...

It is Mother's Day weekend. Ninsi and I are each going to Oklahoma this weekend to visit with our respective families. She is flying to Tulsa this evening, and I am leaving work early to make the drive to McAlester. It works out a lot better for us this way. I'll meet her Sunday, and she'll do the drive back down with me.

Last weekend we went to the Ren Faire. Looks like we will be doing it again in two weeks. That's more faireing that I would normally have hoped to accomplish in 3 years. I might try to find a belt this time. I reckon I could use a new one.

Going to a fish fry tomorrow. Haven't been to one of those in eons. Should be fun. I've always been a fan of (eating) fish. Not sure what the Squid will be eating tomorrow since she is vegetarian now. Im not sure there'll be a whole lot outside of the fish to eat.

It should be a relatively relaxing weekend for Luna and Barley as well. Toby is staying with Zero, so the big dogs wont have to worry about the puppy all weekend. We'll just have to pick him back up late Sunday when we return. Hopefully, if he decides to make a mess in their house, he will do it on the carpet they are about to replace...
