Weekend Recap

I started this blog as an attempt to escape all the awfulness of living in the current reality that is America in the 2020s. That means only silliness and personal anecdotes are allowed to be discussed here-no volatile subject matter of any political nature. However, since everything is political these days, that’s getting mighty hard to do. Especially after a news week like this past one.

So in trying my best to stick to my own rules, I’m not going to blast out a post full of my own opinions (though that may wind up coming soon anyway), but instead I’m just going to tell you about my weekend.

This Memorial Day weekend I:

-had WAY too much food
-had WAY too little exercise
-got a little too much sun
-visited a church where I was one of the youngest people in attendance, by A LOT
-watched “A Mighty Wind” for probably like the tenth time because I listened to the soundtrack last week and it has been in my head
-bought a new cd and an old book
-received a handmade instrument, a two string “spamjo” which is pretty much exactly what you think it is
-heard a placemat referred to as a “food mattress”
-heard White Claw referred to as “Zima for Millennials”
-smoked some chicken quarters on the pellet grill which was good but the recipe needs to be refined a bit
-celebrated my brother’s birthday
-ate a cake shaped like a cat and wasn’t sure how to respond when asked if I “wanted some tail”
-went to a Memorial Day picnic where we officially said goodbye to and, well, for lack of a better word, memorialized two people who had a strong impact on me as a child and, in one case, as an adult too
-saw a few people I hadn’t seen for a long time which was nice
-actually got a little sleep.

Honestly, I didn’t plan for most of that, except for my brother’s birthday, but it wound up being a pretty good weekend. I hope yours was good as well.

See you next week.
