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.
We're watching you.
