Stone Temple Pilots

Last night we went and saw Scott Weiland in all his glory. He wailed and danced for 2 hours. It was fucking awesome and the light show was jawdroppingly stunning. It was almost sensory overload. Brilliant. We started out at the Blue Monkey. DP made me have 3 shooters. Wow.

Then we had a cooler in the car. God forbid we be beerless!

This picture was taken by Mooey's phone while me and Weenie went for beers. We had to wait about 90 minutes for them to take the stage. A tad bit too long for me.

Then the lights went out and all was forgotten. Head banging commenced. Sex Type Thing nearly decapitated me.

We ended the night back at the Blue Monkey for a night cap. I'm a little hangy today. Oh well!

Andy is Having a Panda!

Saturday we attended a shower for Andy. It was held at the Grove Grill. We had a room all to ourselves. It was a good thing because we can get loud. Of course, there were stupid shower games that we had to play. One of the games was to take the couple's names and make new names for the baby. They picked the funniest one and it was Panda. I have to admit, that is a good one. The bad thing is, I will probably call him Panda.

Weenie and I had been out the night before so we were trying to shake off hangovers.

Here's how.

There was also a game where everyone got a tiny baby pin and if you said the word "baby" whoever heard you got to take your pin. As you can see, Mooey was listening instead of talking.

Here Andy is opening our present. I think it's called a Diaper Dude.


After the shower, everyone went home and took a nap. Then at 7:00, we headed downtown to Itta Bena. We were meeting Andy for dinner. Susan was playing.

My hangover was pretty much gone by now but these helped. Absolut, soda and with a tiny splash of cranberry. Yum!
I had a delicious entree of halibut which I forgot to photgraph. Thanks. We said our goodbyes to Andy and loaded up and went to One More for darts! It got kind of wild.

Double air guitar.Then the dancing started.

Whose fucking turn is it!!??

Jerry kicked us out. Sowway!!!!!!

Bumble Bee

My boss brought Earnestine to work to debut her Halloween costume before the actual day. Someone was not amused.

For those that know me personally, you know I am obsessed with my DVR. I look at it everyday. I scan the guide looking for shows to record. I keep up with my percentage of fullness. I go around all the time saying "We have to go home immediately and watch some shows because my DVR is at 88%." My friends just roll their eyes. Often, it will near 100% and a show I've been meaning to get into has to be sacrificed. All this explanation is leading up to the disaster that happened when we came rolling in around 1:30 am Friday night. I usually let Weenie get in bed first so she can go to sleep and I check my DVR. I noticed the time was not showing on the cable box and I was alarmed right away. I walked up to the box and punched the on/off button several times. NOTHING. I was buzzy so I didn't get too freaked out about it. That's until Weenie is on the phone the next morning at 8 something (!) and screaming questions to me. The lady at the cable company told us the DVR was dead and that all 48 of my programs were gone. Who ever thought this could even happen? Now what am I supposed to do? I have to start all over. Tonight, when I go home, I'll have one show on there. Cold Case from last night. Maybe I will save it for awhile.

Saturday Night's All Right for Fighting

Last Saturday night, Weenie and I went over to Mel and Karn's for some wine and wine appetizers. They had quite a spread. Cheese galore and dips. Yum! Afterwards, we headed up to the Monkey to meet our friends and hear Susan Marshall. As you can see, we had a good time!

As if we hadn't had enough, we walked across the parking lot to Backstreet. It was dead. We walked to back and there were a few guys singing karaoke. Perfect. We got beers and sat down. It wasn't long before Dyna was singing a duet with one of the guys. Don't Go Breaking My Heart. It's a true story. I've racked my brain trying to remember the other songs they sang. I know Material Girl was done and then for the finale, Mel sang Music by Madonna. Again, true story.

Another beer?They had to kick us out. Karoake is fun! True story.

Ronny's Birthday

This weekend we went back to Pickwick to celebrate Ronny's birthday. It was a little chilly.

So we built a fire in the outdoor fireplace. Stupid isn't it?

Here are the foragers of wood and the fire attendees.

Here I am enjoying the view. We had been out on the boat but I forgot my camera so there are no boat pictures.

Susan was icing the birthday cake and posed for this picture.

Hi cake!Birthday boy!

Saturday night, we went to Counce and ate at the Broken Spoke.

Weenie ordered quail. Yuck! She said it was awesome.

I had the shrimp which were good.

Then it was back to the patio for more fire and more beers.

I'm not sure how many beers I had over the weekend but I was barely awake on Sunday at all. It was a fun weekend and I can't wait to go back!
