Happy Fun Times...and Homework

Saturday, January 17, 2009
Today I have a dichotomy of activities on my agenda.

First up is homework for my DU class on Leadership (boo, hiss).

Then I have some errands to run, including a trip to the library and stopping at Costco (yay, library, meh, Costco).

Then the Smart Man and I will be cooking dinner and making cocktails for our good friend and Boogie's awesome Auntie Anne. She recently got laid off as a result of the recession (boo, hiss), so we're providing cheap entertainment in an effort to keep her spirits up. Food and alcohol - now that's happy fun times.

The menu will consist of New Orleans style Hurricanes, Bloody Marys, Screwdrivers, rum and coke, vodka and tonic and beer and Mikes.

And oh yeah, there'll be food, too. Tri-Tip on the grill, three cheese rotini casserole, fresh asparagus and brownie bites.

In an effort to ensure the roads will be safe for everyone, Anne's spending the night in our spare room, and the Smart Man has volunteered to cook breakfast. He's an awesome breakfast cook, so of course I said "yes" with alacrity.

There may be pictures, or there may not. But you can assume the Rocky Mountain Branch of the UCF (Now With Less Secrets!) will be having a Happy Fun Time this evening.

I haven't had New Orleans style Hurricanes since I wa stationed at Keesler AFB in Biloxi, MS, which is just a hop, skipo, and jump from New Orleans. Still have hurricane glasses from Pat O'Brien's.

And fresh asparagus. Mmmmmm.

Have a great evening!

Yeah for happy fun times! Way to to put that leadership training into action. ;)

We went to Costco today too... what a freaking zoo. And what it it with oblivious shoppers on their cell phones?

I'm trying to persuade the smug husband to let me buy him a new notebook computer w/ my project bonuses, as his is barely functioning and, more importantly, doesn't meet the specs of many of the new games being released.

So far, he's being a stinker about it. Maybe one day he'll reach in his bag and just FIND A NEW ONE THERE.

What? He doesn't want a new computer? *blink*

And YAY happy fun times! :)

Jeri, we were looking at Laptops for the Smart Man, too. He just wants one. :-)

What's a "mike"?

Janiece Murphy said...

Welcome, RickU.

Mike's Hard Lemonade. Specifically, light cranberry flavor.

My favorite!

RickU said...

AH! That stuff is pretty decent. I lurk here. I really enjoy your blog.

Janiece Murphy said...

Thanks, Rick, I appreciate it.

You're welcome to comment whenever you like, you know. We don't bite. Usually.

RickU said...

That's a dirty lie. I know you Navy types....speaking as a former Jarhead.
