The long dark teatime of the soul

This blog business is going to be harder than I thought. Sorry, it's kind of like cleaning my bathrooms or paying the bills, I put it off until I can devote all my attention to it. Well that will just never happen so either I will post short little disjointed snippets (good word, that snippets) or my posts will be few and far between. Fortunately, I will get the hang of it soon and brilliant, funny, articulate and timely posts will be forthcoming. Unfortunately, I am now entering the long dark teatime of the soul (thanks Douglas Adams), which means it is my weekend to work, and I will be away for a bit.

Day 3456 of my captivity: Hi, welcome to my blog. I thought that would be a catchy way to start. I am so excited to have a blog. I have been thinking about starting a blog. I have been talking endlessly about having a blog and finally....I have a blog. Ok, that is way to much pressure. Now that I have a blog, I have stage fright. Well, I guess I can take comfort in the fact that no one will actually read this blog unless I send it to my friends and family. That makes it a little easier.

Well, here goes. Hi friends and family. Saturday was our anniversary (11 years) and we went out to dinner to Shogun (a Japanese steakhouse) and had steak and shrimp. Yummy, it was great. The only bad thing was the table we were at was with two other couples who both had babies in high chairs who were being fed from baby food jars throughout the entire dinner. It was kind of a boring table. Having been there before at a bachelorette party, I knew the waiter would offer to squirt Saki, a rice alcohol thingie into peoples mouths from a large squirt bottle, but our table was boring and when the waiter offered Saki to the males they all said "No thanks". I was like, hey I want Saki, but then thought I would look like a cheap girl so I kept quiet and did not get to enjoy the excitement of guzzling Saki from a squirt bottle. In retrospect it is probably for the best. We then went to see Get Smart at the cinema, which was very funny and quite entertaining. I used to watch the original series when I was young and enjoyed it a lot.

I hope my friends who were having girls weekend in Ste. Gen were having lots of fun. They were probably drinking Saki from a squirt bottle or at least wine from a paper bag.

This is Girls Night

It was on June 17th 26 years ago that the seeds of the "Girls" were sewn. Tonight, we had "Girls" night at Maggie's House in St. Genevieve Missouri. Maggies Sister and her husband came over and it was revealed that the first time Barb and Terry met Mary Kay was at Maggie's Sisters Husband's Bachelor Party on June 17th, 1982. It was then and is still a small world. Mary Kay spent the night on Barb and Terry's couch that night and have been friends every since. This blog belongs to Timmie who was friends with Mary Kay then and shares the same birthday.

This first post is being written by Terry who probably has had too much to drink right now and probably isn't making much sense. I'm also not a very good writer. I will turn this over to Timmie who is a much better writer, and who will hopefully (or not) write her blog when she is sober.
