friday

in a way its a 'thank god its friday' kinda day...

and on another hand, what the hell is there to look forward to this weekend? I can't think of anything...

I'm not performing....
no soccer....

I have a feeling of wandering aimlessly for the next three days.

I'll mow the lawn... but there isn't much after that. Plus, I'm scared my lawn mower is about to need to go in to the shop, depending on how it goes this week. Last week it made the sound of hitting a rock, so I stopped... didn't see anything spit out of the spout, but the spout cover ripped off, leaving only one hinge. So, I looked underneath the hood to find one of the blades all jacked up. Whatever it hit did some damage, and now the mower is rattling, but still doing its job at least.

Did I ever mention I have tried to enjoy my lawn? I seriously tried. Yet, as time goes by, the effort to have a nice lawn falls away. I swear there are more weeds in that lawn than grass! So, I tried spraying Weed-B-Gone all over it. On the plus side, I've eradicated around 95% of the dandelions, but all of the other weeds didn't seem to mind it. So, I still have crabgrass, thorny weeds and just crappy leafy weeds all over. I'm taking no pleasure in having a lawn. Its nice to have room to have fire-pit (well, more like a raised fire platform). Hell, I should do that this weekend. Have fires... well, contained fires.

Not on the topic of anything you posted but wanted to share this wit hyou because it seemed like something you and most of the comedy city peeps would enjoy if they don't already know about it.

I like the plot thing, that has a bunch of random silly plots.

Dude! Kart Tourney and video game madness on Sunday evening here. Did Jon not get the invite out to you? I shall flog him. Kart tourney, GH and GH2 'til you drop, and we're grilling out.

Oh...my lawn sucks too. There are several bare patches where the dogs have run a dirt path. We're gonna have to work on that...

I remembered, but didn't think about it until later that day.

Kart action is still going to happen.

I think Kristen forgot about it though... but she is still in bed right now...

I have the same issue of trying to enjoy my lawn. Every time I finish mowing it I am incredibly proud of my lawn. To an almost jingo-istic level. I would write yellow journalism about my lawn. But for the most part, my lawn sucks. I've got dandilions and weeds the size of small dogs. Julie murdered those with a shovel, but yeah, I'm going to have to pay out for dandilions if I want them gone. When are they going to come up with a dandilioin resistant strain of grass seed?

that would be excellent!

whoever would be able to invent something like that would become rich... rich I say!

until a dilapitating disease ravages that strain of grass and everyone's lawn dies.
