And now, the news.

Posted: June 19, 2009 in Arizona, bitching, UpTake, weekend

1iconcalvinkissgirlhandI have the CNN gadget on my Google homepage. Just now I glanced down and saw the headline, “Air France bodies had broken bones.” All I could think was, “Uhhhh, yeah? Their plane crashed, didn’t it?”

Also, the whole hype about President Obama killing a fucking fly just pisses me the hell off. He killed… a fly. A. Fly. How the hell is that newsworthy???


I just finished another entry for Uptake. One of my better ones, I think, about the summers I used to spend as a kid on Sebago Lake. Go, read, enjoy.

GAAAAAH, I’m so fucking HOMESICK.


In an act of spur-of-the-moment planning, Calvin called me from the road (he’s on his way “back down the hill” from Flagstaff – for the second time this week) and asked if I wanted to head up north tomorrow for an overnight getaway. Didn’t have to ask me twice – within a half hour I secured us a hotel room. Everything in Flagstaff (our true destination) was booked or exorbitantly priced – the Made in the Shade Beer Festival AND the Flagstaff Music Festival are in town, which is one of the reasons that we, too, want to head North – so we’re staying in Sedona. It’s only a quick jaunt via 89A and cheaper, for once. Like, for this weekend only.

Phoenix weather for tomorrow? A high of 103 and mostly sunny skies.

Flagstaff weather for tomorrow? A high of 74 and mostly sunny skies.

Which one would YOU choose? MAN, I wish we had a motorcycle trailer.

Look for pictures and entries early next week! I’m a hour away from getting the FLIP outta work, after one (hundred) hellish week(s). Tonight I’ll clean a bit, do some laundry, and pack an overnight bag. Probably get some shopping in, too, since we’re planning on having Michael and Marie (and their significant others) over for Father’s Day dinner on Sunday night – we’ll probably get home by two or three, and they’re coming over at six. I still don’t know what I’m cooking.

Feh. The details will work themselves out. Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

    Yay for you getting to escape the heat for a little while! We’re only two hours or so from the mountains in North Carolina and I’ve often thought of doing that when the heat gets to be too much here – might have to this summer the way things are going. Hope you are having a great weekend and happy Father’s Day to Calvin!
