Don't even ask

Here is what we have planned for the upcoming weekend:

Nothing. Nada. Bupkis.

We won't be going to the Opera. We won't be attending fancy dress balls in our Sunday best. We won't be hosting an evening of 15th Century French poetry. And we definitely won't be participating in that political round-table discussion that we were invited to. The Obamas are just going to have to look for another couple to replace us.

Nope. We are going to lay around in our pajamas and try to get rid our our colds. Maybe watch some movies or catch up on our TV shows. I'm definitely going to sit down and watch Notre Dame play Washington on Saturday.  Gia will probably read a lot.  And I'll make soup. Or chili. Something hot and warm.  But we aren't doing anything this weekend.

Nothing.  Nada.  Bupkis.

Unless, of course, we do.

It's been a Mad World in the Blogosphere this week.  Strength to all those hurting.

PS -  Tomorrow's post (Friday Oct 2nd) will be a special one for a fellow blogger and the a certain cause that he is championing.  Check, check...check it out!


Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Seriously...just leave us alone this weekend.  Unless you wanna, ya know, go out drinking or something.

Enjoy doing nothing. I love a weekend of having absolutely no obligations.

Peach Tart - Seems as if there is always a family get together or some such. I'm going to relish the nada.

sybil law said...

Sounds like my planned weekend, except for those pesky soccer games. Enjoy!

Verdant Earl said...

PAticus - I knew that would draw a reaction from somebody. Congrats! ;)

Wabbit - I'll check it out.

Becky - Yeah...with some of that Maker's Mark Bourbon that you went down to Kentucky to get. :)

Slyde - It's my belief that my big balls should be held every night. Whoa!

2abes - NEVER!

Sybil - that's why cats are better than kids. Except that I had to take one of them to the Vet yesterday for kitty pink eye. Blech!

Faiqa said...

Sounds perfectly divine. Watch a cheesy Lifetime Original for me, will ya'?

Verdant Earl said...

Faiqa - I would sooner jab at my eyes with toothpicks.

@Everyone - My Taiwanese spammer is still going strong. But his/her last comment cracked me up. They introduced themselves as being from Taiwan. Duh. And then they offered to take me on various guided tours AND guided tours. Apparently they are very big into guided tours. And they offered them to me in English and in French. Which seemed nice. Ah, that Taiwanese spammer. Gotta love him/her/it.

I'm damn ready for some chili myself, but it's just not cold enough here to excuse it.
