How I spent my Friday afternoon

Friday I was in the mood to go out and DO something instead of just driving home and vegetating.

Don't get me wrong, vegetating is great 83% of the time, but that day I wanted to just... I dunno, to DO something.

I was listening to our local radio station, which mentioned that a local deli-type place was selling BBQ ribs that day.
I remembered that same station had mentioned another local business which sold chocolate-covered espresso beans. (It's a combination music store and coffee shop. Yeah. I dunno.)

So I went and bought some BBQ ribs to go, parked in a semi-picturesque place, and loudly-noisily-sloppily ate my dinner while enjoying the bright sunny day.

Then I went to the music store and bought half a pound of chocolate covered espresso beans.
(Eight bucks for half a pound?!!!)

I drove out to the lake and parked near the shore, enjoying the lovely scenery while popping chocolate covered caffeine bombs into my system.

It was nice.

I twittered a brief summary of my lovely experience and watched the lake. People were fishing and water-skiing. On shore, a group of Canadian geese were congregating and discussing the most effective ways to cover the planet in goose poop.

It was a nice time.
After the caffeine particles convinced me I had an imaginary friend who played the bagpipes and loved drinking rocket fuel through a straw shaped like the upper part of Idaho, I drove home. My brain cells may or may not have been vibrating at the same frequency as Russian satellites.

So.... how was YOUR weekend?

Are you still awake from all the caffeine? I would be.

MonkeyMan: It's hard to hear you over all the buzzing in my brain, but I-- wow, I think my spleen just exploded. Why did the dinosaurs die? Oh, look! Something shiny! Let's sing! I know just the song!

Spam guy #1 who I deleted: Please go play in traffic. Without a helmet.

Spam guy #2 who I deleted: Please go swim with sharks. Naked. With an oozing laceration.

Have you seen my helmet?

nonamedufus: I think the spam guy might have stolen it. Wait until the sharks eat him and you can probably get it back.
