Damn that Sass!

Posted by Gwen |

I took the day off today to get ready for the arrival of weekend house guests.  Five of my Chicagoland Gang - Johnny B, Mrs. Johnny B, Laugh and Mrs. Laugh, and Scope - are making the trek south on the Double Nickle today to spend the weekend with little ole me and go to the Taste of Soulard, the kick-off event of Mardi Gras here in The Lou.  I'm wicked excited and I have a ton of stuff to do - make beds, clean the basement bathroom (the one I'm afraid of), cook, go to the liquor store, clean - before they get here.


And then I get up this morning to find that my BFF Sass gave me an award for being so awesome.

Now I'm all conflicted about who is more awesome - me for being award-worthy or her for recognizing it?

All kidding aside, I consider Sass an incredible judge of character and was waylaid by the nice things she said about me*.  So much so that I wish she'd picked another Friday to showcase me - doesn't she know that refreshing her blog every five minutes to check for new comments is going to cut into the time I need to get ready?

* Go read them and in the comments tell her how right she is.  KTHXBAI.

Well...you could try to discipline yourself, and only check it at noon, 3, 6, and 9. Then you'll be amazed at the Gwen lovin' just piling up into a big steamy...pile or something.

;)

I so heart you. Enjoy your weekend. Be safe!!!!

"The double nickle"

Have a great weekend with the crew. I'm still waiting for video of something burning with a picture of Santa inside.

Sassy Britches said...

Completely deserving, I might add!

Have a blast this weekend! Maybe you should play a game where whoever passes out first has to clean the scary bathroom. That way you can avoid doing it yourself! Unless you're a lightweight.

I followed over here from Sass--glad I did. I may see you in Soulard this weekend too--and I wont even know it!

Let me tell you all that I have had the opportunity to hang with BOTH Sass and Gwen (and you too, H) in the last 24 hours, and I will tell you that they are amazing women, and I'm honored to call them "FRIENDS".

Not "blog friends."
Not "Facebook friends."

No qualifier needed, honest to goodness, FRIENDS.
