What do Uber Cool People do on a Long Holiday Weekend....

Friday, September 4, 2009....

I'm not sure what 'uber' cool people do on a long holiday weekend, but I'll share what I'll be doing. It's exciting. You'll be so jealous. I just know it.

1. I just remembered I have to give away some of the $$ I don't have to some large corporation that has asked me for some. Heck, I'm generous like that. Hmmm...why can't the large corporation see my monthly payment as 'generous'? This way I could claim it as a charitable tax donation.

2. Remember to call for a hair cutting appointment. It was 6 months since my last hair cut (stop judging, at least I shower).

3. Sanding the basement outside door. Sure, it has a name, but who cares? I know I'll just be doing that for part of my time....well, until I get bored or distracted by anything that catches my eye.

4. Seeing that Woodstock movie that is out. Remember my strange ass dream where I told my hubby I didn't want to go to Woodstock in a motor boat. Well, some people who commented were correct. I had forgotten that hubby said he wanted to see it. Okay, I blocked it out. I so don't want to see it, but hey, marriage is a compromise and when I drag his ass to see All About Steve, I don't want to hear any whining. I don't care if a real man wouldn't see it. He will.

5. Other outdoor yard stuff. This includes pulling more bittersweet (horrible vine that grows faster than the Duggar family produces another child) from my trees and shrubs. It should be noted, pulling out bittersweet from the lilac tree includes a conversation that has not been pleasant between hubby and I. His need to destroy a lilac tree past it's prime and me convincing him that the tree still produces 3 or 4 lovely buds (see, he doesn't want to replace it with another lilac tree and that's why I'm whining).

Somewhere in the mix, we'll go out to dinner and not McDonald's or Burger King. Somewhere a bit more classy where they serve you at a table and booze is served.

I guess if I were Uber Cool, I'd be off to the Hamptons in some great new dress in a snazzy convertible. Since I'm not, I just hang out here in CT.

um... have a great weekend...!?! just kidding- sounds good to me! besos-jane p.s. who needs the hamptons when you have woodstock?...

Eyes Wide Open said...

CT huh? We're practically neighbors!
I'm gonna ride my beach cruiser around and peep at the uber-cool people who vacation here. In my three-year-old ripped jeans and t-shirt. That's as close as I get.
Have fun!

Badass Geek said...

Um... I'm working all weekend, so that makes me envious of yours.

erin said...

I'm going to be doing the same types of things.
Cleaning out the basement.
Finding leggings for Olivia in super duper duper duper skinny enough sizes.
Picnicking with Jeremiah's dad, stepmom, their ridiculous dogs and a bunch of their friends, none of whom I've ever met.

Wow. I'm excited.

Little Ms Blogger said...

jane - LOL... I wouldn't want to go to the Hamptons. Too much traffic and not enough $$$ for the wardrobe.

Eyes Wide Open - LOL - jeans and t-shirt are perfect because so comfy.

Badass - I'm sorry you're working all weekend. Maybe it'll rain in Maine and it won't be so bad.

erin - ugh...the basement. I hate basements. Enjoy the picnic and meeting all new people (I openly admit, I'd rather weed than do that).

a corgi said...

sounds like an eclectic type of weekend; a little of this; a little of that, etc. if you and hubby are home together and get to spend time with each other, it makes it a great weekend!

enjoy :)

betty

La La La Leah said...

I am going to be painting and visiting with a friend that use live right next door but moved to Colorado. She is coming to see me and her family. But that is about as wild as I get! I did post some camping recipes on my blog today!

Little Ms Blogger said...

a corgi - Absolutely true!

La La - Camping recipes - I'm intrigued. Sounds like a fun weekend you have planned - low key, but fun.

Green-Eyed Momster said...

I'm totally jealous! Sounds like a fabulous weekend. I hear the Hamptons are over-rated! ;)

Hugs!!

CaJoh said...

I hear that at some McDonald's in Germany they serve Beer— so I guess McDonald's isn't out (If you live in Germany).

The Vegetable Assassin said...

I got my hair cut last week. It was 14 months since my last cut. Yes, I was a yeti with boob length hair. Now it's shoulder length and has a SHAPE! So six months is nothing, really. :)

Little Ms Blogger said...

Green Eyed - Aren't you working all weekend like Badass Geek? Anything would be more fun.

CaJoh - but I also stipulated that I wanted to be served, so luckily for me, McDonald's is still a no go.

Veggie - I feel much better now.

Stephanie said...

Your weekend sounds great to me. I love being able to get things done. Instead I am going on a shopping trip with my mom and sister. Wish me luck!

Esmerelda said...

You are uber-cool. I will be going to the gym and doing a football draft...

whee.

Esmerelda said...

Ps. I prefer "fan" rather than "stalker."

just sayin'.

otin said...

It is Friday night and I am commenting on blogs! Who is uber cool now? lol!

rxBambi said...

I ditto Otins comment, but only for 3 more hours, then I will be ubercool! Or least pretending I am :)

Heckety said...

Well...there's uber and then there's uber...but sanding doors is really the pits, that I agree!
PS Thank you for the coment on my post. The laptop runs on Vista and won't answer emails.

Ink Obsession Designs said...

I so need to work on my landscaping this weekend. Hopefully I'll actually get it done . . .

Have a good weekend!

Alexis AKA MOM said...

Uber-cool yup don't know any of those type of people ... LOL.

Hey at least your planning to get a haircut!

So do we get pictures of this monumental dinning out experience :)

Have fun my dear paint the town red or at least a nice shade :)

Leslee said...

Hmmm.. well ubber cool folk from Northern CA are re-caulking shower stalls! HA!!

I do intend to make the trip to Apple Hill for some apples!! We dry them so the hubster can add them to his homemade trail mix; a holiday fav :-)

Candice said...

Have a wonderful weekend.

I'll be pulling weeds right along with you. At least that's my plan.

Sucks to be old! ;)

Little Ms Blogger said...

Stephanie - Good luck with that. I've never been a great shopper.

Esmerelda - Yeah, that's it. Fan sounds so much better than stalker.

otin - Very.

rxBambi - You don't have to pretend you are.

Heckety - In some circles, sanding the floor is consider cool. Not quite sure where. But, I'm sure there's a place.

Ink Obsession Designs - That's my hope too.

Ink Obsession Designs - No pics of the dining experience. I don't want to be thrown out of a place then it's back to McDonald's and BK for me.

Leslee - I love apple picking. In fact, hubby and I were just talking about how we have to go back to the farm we went last year because I don't remember the name of the apple I liked, but remembered where it was located on the orchard. Here's the problem, he doesn't remember the name of the place and I can't remember when we went to ensure they're in season.

Candice - It's called mature - ya know like good wine (no counting the stuff aged in mylar).

Sunshine Mama said...

What the heck does uber mean anyway? Ahh, uber-goober. Sounds like in a round-about way that you've got a hot date planned. Have fun. And have a great weekend!

Funny Girl said...

Hi there. I have passed an award to you...but now see that you already got it...boo-hoo. Anyhoo...love your blog!

LiLu said...

Lol at the Duggar line. That was fantastic.

My weekend is the same, except with less stuff.

We are UBER cool.

Constructive Attitude said...

Yours sounds a hell of a lot better than mine.

Life with Kaishon said...

Hi : ) I am popping over from the Fifty Factor. Your weekend sounds a lot like mine : ). I am not very cool either I guess. I hope you liked that woodstock movie. Thankfully my husband does not want to see it because I don't know if I could bear it : ) Happy Labor Day : )

Optimistic Pessimist said...

considering that i'm an uber cool person i'll let you know what my long weekend has or will consist of:

running
catching up on blogging
reading
wine or beer drinking

midlifeslices said...

So am I Uber cool or Uber lame if I've spent the entire weekend hanging sheetrock and flipping off my husband for yelling at my sheetrock hanging skills?

I'm going to vote for Uber cool.

p.s. did Tera make your cupcake picture?

Little Ms Blogger said...

Sunshine Mama - Uber means extreme, ultimate, the best. I just like the word because it sounds stupid and something a 2 year would say.

Funny Girl - Thanks. I love the award and feel happy you wanted to give me one.

LiLu - No one is more 'uber' than you. I'm so happy someone caught the reference. I swear that woman just keeps cranking them out.

Constructive Attitude - Ohhh...that's not good. I'm a bit sore and still have a lot of things left to do 4 tomorrow.

Miss Nobody - I'm glad you're back and loved the first poem on new blog, but why the name change?

Monica - Thanks.

Amanda K - Okay, doing nothing is fun at times too.

Life with Kaishon - Thanks for stopping by. I haven't seen it yet and am going tomorrow. I soooooooo don't want to see it.

OP -ouch, fun, fun & YUMMY. Before you mock me...have you tried the new Bud Light lime? It's very refreshing after being outside all day.

midlifeslices - Definitely Uber Cool. I ended up using some new spray device as my personal super soaker on husband while outside.

p.s. no the cupcake is an image I can't remember where I found.

NINA said...

Midtown Girl said...

Chick you will always be uber cool in my book thanks to your wit, honesty & hilariousness.

Stay you love!

XOXO

Smart Mouth Broad said...

You are so waaaaay more uber cool than me. Your bittersweet reminds me of my bougainvilla. It's like a flippin jack in the beanstalk.

Enjoy your non-McDonalds dinner.

Little Ms Blogger said...

NINA - Thank you. I really appreciate the fact that you like my blog enough to think of me.

Midtown Girl - Thanks. I feel uber cool especially with uber chicks telling me so. :-)

Smart Mouth Broad - how the heck does it grow so damn fast???? UGH...
