    Let's see...

    Work-- I'm self employed. I've got a couple Internet websites up and providing sales but people always call with questions on those.

    I'm trying to spend more time promoting my book.

    Plus I working with someone else helping promote a Canadian pharmacy.

    I've got to get the lawn mowed.

    And I'm sure I'll be watching some cheesy horror movies on the SciFi network with a few forensic shows thrown in for good measure.

    Oh yeah and then there is the wife and daughter... :)

    I laid 400 square foot of saltillo tile on the back porch last weekend.

    This weekend I get to look forward to cleaning it, sealing it and laying the grout.

    All in 100 degree weather

    Oh Joy

    Single and happy, girl friend has things to do on Sat (Shopping) but she knows me well enough to know I'm going to play regardless. Not kidding I play every single weekend rain,cold or heat lighting is the only thing that will make me stop and I'll wait it out. I once played when it was 10 degrees with a heavy mist and windy conditions. I was the only person on the course that day and shot a 73 for the round.

    Actually this is a BIG w/e for me. There is a bike race through Philly every year the first sunday in June. I live in manayunk/roxborough area which is at a high altitude so there are some really steep streets (like San Fran) and the bike race goes through a small loop right in this area. Anyway the race goes right down my street so we are having a big party. The race starts around 9 am sunday morning, a big motorcade leads the way on the first lap. A lot of the streets are shut down for local traffic, its a big deal. The area where i live is a great place to watch because its the most greuling part of the race with all the hills. So we've got a couple kegs set up at my house already, tomorrow i'll spend most of the day cleaning and setting up for the party.

    Last year was my first year in this house and i didnt know what to expect. I'm out back flipping burgers and i come in and there's like 20 girls standing in the dining room drinking beers and waiting for the bathroom. My friend invited them in off the street, he's like i offered your bathroom and they all came running. It's kind of like that, people come from all over to watch the race and then just spend the day walking up and down the streets crashing parties. i dont mind because im pretty much a socializer and i like to meet new people all the time.

    That sounds pretty neat.

    Biking is a pretty big deal down here in Austin due to Lance Armstrong. Bikes are pretty much taking over down here.

    Tip a few back for me, bro.

    I'll be chillin at the annual block party in our development, prolly a judge at the kid's decorated bicycle parade. You get older, and the bicycling events tend to get a bit less exciting ...

    Thank God for beer.

    I have worked at Starbucks for over a year and this is the first time I have gotten an entire weekend off without asking for it. Nice.

    I will be going to this

    www.tccra.org

    My family is big into dirtbike racing. I will see if I can put a few practice laps in, but I am outta shape and stuff. My brother is the true talent.

    HOWEVER - next weekend is huge for me.

    I am going to Vegas for the FIRST TIME EVER. Nice, nice, nice. Staying at Bally's. Any suggestions, let me know. I plan on having a good time.

    Frank: I told my wife I wouldn't drink tonight. Besides, I got a big day tomorrow. You guys have a great time.
    College Student: A big day? Doing what?
    Frank: Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.

    but seriously... I will probably watch some movies,drink some beer,and hang out with my gf.Hoov ,I'll be over for some beer around 2 or so... :D
