Two days later I am still thinking about this and those little dark beans floating around in my drink. Oh, and did I mention the Tuna Tartar that I ate after the martini? That really was the icing on the cake. Nothing like white wine, vodka, and raw fish. Now excuse me please I'm starting to feel dizzy again.

I'm not one to play practical jokes on people. In fact, I think most practical jokes suck. However, I did think of one thing that might give me a chuckle next week on April Fool's Day.
I would love to find a Bigfoot costume and walk across my back-40 property and across the fields behind my neighbor's houses. I'm laughing now just thinking about it. I can just picture them looking out their kitchen windows, yelling for their somone to get them a camera. Oh man, I would pee myself.
There's a good chance however, that I would probably get shot at if I ever attempted this. That's a high price to pay for entertaining myself. Besides, summer will be here shortly and my neighbors will get enough of a scare when I throw on my bathing suit. And since I've gone all winter without shaving, I wouldn't need a Bigfoot costume.*
*Kidding about the shaving, really!

After chiseling my lenses off of my eyeballs, a process which is not easy to do with contacts that are supposed to be removed before going to bed, I looked down at my blurry hand. "That's not going to be easy to get off", I thought.
I'm thinking my memoir from yesterday's post should have read a bit differently. Perhaps this one can serve as my backup - Shouldn't have had that last beer.
And yes, that fake tattoo is still stuck to my hand, even after trying to scrub it off in the shower. Except now it looks worse.

After much thought and consideration here it is:
I am tagging the following ladies:
Chewy from The Back Of My HeadBoard because I think she will come up with something very interesting and creative.
OC from Bears Mountain because she is a new blog friend and I'm curious as to what she will say.
Rita and Lyn from Working The Room because I love reading their blogs.
Cristina from A Wander's Thoughts because she has more exciting adventures than I do.
Ronia from Ride 100 because she looks like she is having way too much fun snowboarding in British Columbia.

Ok, for those of you still confused, here's the low down. In March of 1776 the Continental troops forced the British army to evacuate Boston. In 1901 Evacuation Day was created as an official holiday to be celebrated in Suffolk County, Cambridge, and Somerville.
Even though I do not live in Boston anymore, working there does have some perks. And this is one of them. As is Bunker Hill day in June but that's a topic for another post.
So fire up your muskets and grab a mug of green beer. It's time to celebrate!

Last week, a secret recording emerged of a disturbing speech by Oklahoma Representative Sally Kern stating that homosexuality is a bigger threat to our nation than "terrorism or Islam." Rep. Kern has refused to apologize for her remarks.
This video is truly disturbing. To take action, go to the HRC website or to the Victory Fund.
And as for Sally. Sally, Sally, Sally. Do you realize how ignorant you sound? How foolish? Do you know how many people across the country think you are a hateful, miserable person?

"Would it be possible for you to create a separate Tab in Portal Test (PT1) with just the Company Directory piglet on it?"Oh my. Yes, ever the consummate professional, I replied to my error with the following:
At least one person in the office got a kick out of it. As for the rest, they are just happy my contract ends in June.
"The Company Directory piglet resides next to the Winnie the Pooh pagelet."

NATICK, Mass. (AP) — A child's birthday party at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant is cut short when a fight breaks out between two mothers.Natick police said the mom of the 9-year-old birthday boy apparently became enraged because the other woman's son was "hogging" an arcade game.Sgt. Paul Thompson said 38-year-old Catherine MyFormerNextDoorNeighbor and 33-year-old Tarsha SomeOtherLady, both of Boston, would be summoned into court to answer charges of simple assault and battery stemming from the scuffle.
This story was all over the internet and radio in Boston today. The mom of the 9-year-old birthday boy is my former next door neighbor from when I lived in Boston. Glad I remembered to return her cake plate.

I did not own these. Because I wasn't a little bit country or a little bit rock and roll. I was a little bit lesbian. Sure, I had the bike with the banana seat, the Magic 8 Ball, and the soundtrack from Grease. But my taste in dolls was a bit different. I owned this:
I also had Big Jim's buddy Big Josh. They would travel around my room in their Big Jim Camper, complete with sleeping bags and cooking utensils. I don't know if Big Jim and his friend were more gay or if I was. Oh well, at least I never lived in the closet next to a Magic 8 Ball.
