You can feel a change in the air around the holler today. I woke up to a cool, crisp morning and I didn't have to threaten, bribe or otherwise cajole Pupzilla to go outside once she got a whiff of the outside air. Of course, next week when I'm off, it's supposed to be back up around 90°, but for now I'll take what I can get.
Bossholio has finally acknowledged that I'm taking off next week. He approved it a month ago, but has made no effort to find out what needs to be done or someone to do it until now.. the Thursday before. He must really think I don't do anything but sit over here with my thumb up my keister all day and while I don't wish for a catastrophe (because I'll just end up having to fix the mess when I get back) I do hope he gets a much needed rude awakening while I'm gone.
Me and The Amazon are hoping to take a day trip on her day off next week. So far, we've pondered:
- Cherokee, specifically Harrah's. More specifically, the bar at Harrah's.
- Digging for emeralds, which sounds awesome in theory, but I'm sure would result in my lying in the bottom of a pit somewhere with a muscle spasm. Writhing in pain, covered in dirt, mud and rocks is so not a good look for me. So maybe not.
- The archeological museum over in Johnson City. For the record, all the digging for bones, rocks and dirt wallering suggestions are actually my idea. I know, you're in awe of my geektardedness. Try to control yourselves.
- There's some kinda freakfest taking place downtown in Big City. I don't really know what it is, I just know there are people on unicycles with lots of piercings and dilated pupils. With juggling. And bellydancing. I think.
Anywho, I'm open to suggestions. I need one day to go scooter poopin', the rest of the week will be filled with hauling trash and scrubbing everything in sight. How do ya'll think I should spend a free day with The Amazon next week?
Ya'll take care. We'll talk again soon.
