I had a nice weekend.
Saturday I went to lunch with my friend Elizabeth, and afterwards we partook in my naughty pedicure indulgence. Really, any spa treatment is a-okay by me (“Are you ready for your treatment?” “I enjoy my treatments”)…I just wish they didn’t cost as much as an off-broadway show ticket. Damn it, and I still haven’t seen Rent live! Seriously, I don’t do it that often, but who the hell pays $65 to have someone rub their feet and paint their toe nails? Oh, I do. Did I mention that I only do it rarely? Not that I feel guilty or anything, but…I work hard for my money and I can spend it anyway I want to and you can’t stop me!
Saturday night was a nice, quiet one. I watched Up (the Pixar cartoon) with the Hubby, and I sobbed like a baby during the opening scene when they did the Carl and Ellie montage, and then Hubby said something cute and appropriate like “that’ll be us”…and then finished the thought with…”but you can’t die first”, which I can’t decide is sweet or mean…
Sunday I had breakfast with some friends, and then went grocery shopping at Target, which is NEVER a good idea on a weekend afternoon. I actually stopped at Target prior to breakfast to pick up my share of the breakfast potluck (cream cheese and lox, and bagels for the gluten-eating infidels) and almost cried because the store was so wonderfully empty, and I knew that I would have to come back later in the afternoon when the crowds had invaded.
Except clueless, self-centered soccer moms racing up and down the narrow aisles, yelling into surgically attached smartphones with screaming spawn-children hanging from the carts like the cast of Jackass might rank a little higher than zombies on the scare-o-meter.
So, all in all, not a bad weekend. I was able to get some chores done (still have to change the litterbox, darn it), read a few things, watch a few things, see a few friends and hang out with the Hubby. Priceless (well, except for that pedicure).
Credit where credit’s due: I found the zombie horde picture at http://www.moonbattery.com/zombie-horde.jpg (but this blogger doesn’t cite a reference, so I’m not sure where it’s from originally). Moonbattery is a conservative blog, and you know those are always good for a few zombies. Moonbattery is actually using the zombie pic with the following caption: “San Francisco panhandlers echoing Obama’s call for change.” I think my use of zombiage is funnier.
