weekend round up (from last weekend)

i have been trying to be better about updating the blog. so i am going to at least catch up on last weekend. maybe later i will do this weekend. i make no promises.

after an incredibly stressful week at work, and the promise of an even more stressful one the next week, i decided to split town. shayne and i went up to VT to visit our respective sisters.

catholic churchi started the trip by going to a turkey supper at the catholic church. they needed a new roof, so for $8.00 i got a full dinner and some interesting conversation. the guy next to me scared the pants off of me by wanting to talk about the Pope. i felt edgy enough about being in a catholic church, the last thing i wanted to do was get into a theologic conversation. it turns out that the dude wanted to bash on the Pope for being a nazi youth. boy, was i relieved.

the rest of the weekend was spent eating, and walking, and futzing. my sister figured out a nifty little cellphone hack so that i could create my own ringtone. now, when my phone rings, it plays Lonesome Magic Vice Harvest (aka -- the music from that Geico commercial). it makes me happy every time it happens. i got to see the school my sister swims out, and the legal clinic where greg works. and i got to pick up some of my favorite VT doughnuts and other assorted junk at the dented can store.

i returned much rested and ready to face the chaos at work.

Dented can store? Please explain!!!

the dented can store is where old weird food goes to die. it is a mix of products that didn't quite make it on the consumer market (such as "Frothee -- all purpose creamy head for cocktails!"), packages that were damaged, food with the wrong labels, etc. on a recent trip they had a jar of sesame seeds, only that was crossed out in permanent marker, and what was actually in the jar was a mysterious green herb. most things cost a dollar or less. and they always seem to have a stock of leftover stale peeps.

I'm glad you had such a nice weekend! You'll have to show me that phone hack. My phone has no interesting ring tones.

I hope this coming week goes smoothly!

wonder girl and I were saying last night that we need more bandit time.
