Dog Days

I’m bored internet. B.O.R.E.D.

Yes, I have tons I could do……clean my house from top to bottom. Do the gazillion loads of laundry that I have waiting. Clean the couch that smells like a dog……….yep…I have a lot to do. But none of it is FUN. I want to GO PLACES, and DO THINGS. Alas, we have a kid that just graduated (expensive) and going to college (outrageous), and another turning 16 on the 1st of July (EEEKKKK!!!), so, it’s not like I can just drop everything and book a trip to Puerto Rico (ahem, Stoogie….). Besides, I’ve got things like WORK, and KIDS to worry with as well.

Anywho…….I’ve been scouring the internet for things that interest me. Like the Soulard Farmer’s Market in St. Louis. It’s less than a 2 hour trip, and unless one goes bat-shit crazy buying produce, bakery items and meat….it ought not be terribly expensive. And then there’s the Canine Cannon Ball—which is a fundraiser for the Dogwood Animal Shelter in a community south of my town. It’s held at the Lake of the Ozarks (at the Dog Days Bar & Grill), and tonight they have an Extreme Vertical competition…….and to me it sounds LIKE A BLAST. Order some decent sounding food, a drink and watch the dogs.

Tomorrow they have a Speed Retrieve Heat, 3 Big Air WAVE competitions, and on Sunday, the Finals.

And, best of all, other than the food and drink….the Canine Cannon Ball is FREE!! So, I may go out on a limb and actually try to DO SOMETHING tonight. I always think about doing stuff, but I never seem to get off my butt to actually DO IT. Luckily, Mr. Perfectly is really good about indulging my whims, so he’ll grab his camera and do whatever I want. Which is nice. He’s good to me like that.

I’ll see if Perfectly’s Dad wants to go. He’s grumpy, so he’ll probably say no, but maybe. JUST MAYBE he’ll want to tag along. Next week is his birthday, so Teenie and I are putting our brains together to try to come up with a PARTAY for Daddy-o. So far, all he wants to do is go to Hooters, and said he wants it arranged to take a Hooter’s Girl home. Um…….NO. He can arrange his OWN Hooters……

Hee Hee, we’ll buy him a stuffed Owl (aka HOOTER) to take to bed with him at night. GREAT IDEA number one has emerged. Thanks, Internet……..you are ALWAYS good for bouncing ideas off of.

Okay, Internet…here’s your assignment. Think of fun, FREE things for me to do to entertain myself this summer. Secondly, think of additional fun things for my Dad’s birthday. He’ll be 65.
See Ya!! Happy Friday!!

You sound like me. I always seem bored when I have the most junk to do. I'm behind at work, but want to play on the internet. I've got a SIL and nephew coming to visit this weekend and there's a pile of laundry waiting for me to fold and a house to clean. Yet, all I want to do is watch TV or go on vacation. LOL

I don't know about your city, but Memphis has a free afternoon at the zoo every week. Then there are sometimes free exhibits to go to at various places. I love the doggie events you mentioned - I went to a neat dog show thing in Memphis and had a blast. I didn't have dogs at the time, but was doggie-sitting for my boss. I brought his dog and he loved smelling and seeing all there was to smell and see. Do you have a Botanical Garden? They're a neat way to waste away an afternoon. Or play tourist in your own town - go do the things you never have done and pretend you don't live there. I lived in AZ for like 2.5 years and never went to the Grand Canyon!

Or just drive down south a bit and come meet me :)

We live in Rural Missouri....no botanical gardens or zoos. Unfortunately.

I would LOVE to meet up w/ you! how fun would that be?

Yeah.... so.... I read this the day it posted, was going to comment, think I actually typed a comment but then got interrupted and closed the window without saving and so now here it is days later and Perfectly Shelly probably thinks I don't love her anymore which is not at all true cuz I do but I am a fluff brain and forget even important stuff sometimes.

FREE is a good 4-letter "F-word". Just like SALE is a good 4-letter "S-word".

I hope you got to do something fun/cool. I'll probably be ass in projects this coming weekend. Which is good news for YOU Ms. Perfectly because then the things I said I was going to send way back at EASTER TIME I can finally send. (Oh the mortification that it takes me this long to get stuff done).

Ack! Now I've babbled. Forgive me. I'll be slinking away now...

Why no trips to Puerto Rico?

Did you go to the Canine Cannon Ball?

I don't know of anything that's free. Here in NYC, there are zoos and botanical gardens and all sorts of things, but they all cost money.

But sex is sometimes free. I vote for sex.

Stoogie......why no trips to Puerto Rico? NO MONEY...that's why. I see commecials all the time, and I want to go...but Lake of the Ozarks is all I can do at this point.

You could start posting random blogs to waste time. Or count nose hairs. Or poll your co-workers on the raging subject of boxers vs. briefs. I know that would go over well in your office.

I've had too much caffeine this morning. I dont' drink coffee, but when I do, watch the F out! LOL
