Origins 07: You Can’t Get There From Here

Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

Man, I love 4th of July travel, in theory, because I have the whole day off and don’t have to worry about working eight hours and then having to endure a huge long car trip afterwards. This way, we can get up, leisurely gather stuff together, maybe run a few errands and as long as we’re on the road by a decent time (11ish give or take was the target for the Origins trip) life is golden.

Trust Ohio To Mess Things Up

Tuesday, July 3rd, 2007

Awww man, I was all “OoooOOOooooo!” about being in Columbus on the 4th because they do a bang up (heh) job of celebrating the 4th with their Red, White and Boom celebration. We caught it once when Origins encapsulated Independence Day and it was rather quite boomy. And also shiny! and you know I love the shiny! Then I read about another celebration going on called “Red, White and Brew” thrown by a pub called The Frog Bear and Wild Boar and I perked up with a resounding OoooOOOooooo!! because beer! Then 30 seconds later my happy festivities balloon was ruthlessly popped when I read that the Red, White and Brew was going to be held on the 3rd. We’re not leaving until the 4th. *sniff* But at least we would catch the Red, White, and Boom and I do love me a giant fireworks display.

Today, while discussing plans with a coworker, I found it odd when she said the local fireworks show (which is not nearly as impressive as Columbus’s gig) was going down tonight rather than tomorrow night. If anyone hasn’t already caught on, it is presently July 3rd and last I checked we’all as a nation celebrated the whole Independence of the Colonies on the 4th not the 3rd. However, it could be that I haven’t gotten the memo yet because I always seem to be the last person to get the news. Barring the national memo thing, I decided that the locals were on crack, which…could very well be. But! Then I got to thinking about things and stuff, mostly stuff relating to the willy nilly changing of Independence Day, and I got a niggling bad feeling in that tiny part of the head which spawns niggling bad feelings. So I popped over to the Red, White and Boom page to check when their festivities were being held and I discovered that Ohio is on crack as well.

NOOOOOOOOOOOO! My Shinies! Why?? WHY!?!

How Many Posts Start With “Lazy”?

Perhaps I should have named my blog “Cheeto butt” (imagine the Googling on that. Heh) or Couch Cheeto because I accomplished very little of my plans this weekend.
