Is it Friday yet?


Another crazy week is coming to a close. We’ve been so busy at work lately that there wasn’t much time for anything else. And on the weekends we’re trying to cramp in as much as possible all the other chores that need to be taken care of. George also has to study for his classes on top of that. By the end of our weekends we feel mostly drained. That’s when we’re ready for an actual weekend but that dreaded Monday is already lurking around the corner.


It could be worse I suppose. We should be glad that we have jobs and are able to pay our bills. But sometimes it would be just nice to take a day or two off.


That said, that’s exactly what we’re going to do in about three weeks. We’ll be on our way for another extended weekend trip to the City of Angels. Our main reason for our visit to Los Angeles will be an open-air concert with Peter Gabriel at the Hollywood Bowl. An extraordinary performer at an amazing venue. How let’s hope the weather will play along as well.


There are no specific plans for the rest of the time. Don’t you just love it? We’ll just wake up in the morning and see where the wind will take us...so to speak. Whatever happens happens and it will be marvelous. It could either be a nice day at the beach or a visit to the many museums this great city has to offer. We’ll be checking out one or two of our favorite eating places and of course a visit to our favorite coffee house can’t be missed. I’m also hoping to meet a fellow blogger while we’re there.


Speaking of fellow bloggers. Everybody’s favorite archeologist will be spending a few days in our fair city of sin next week. Homer is visiting a friend and George and I are looking forward to have a nice lunch or dinner with him while he’s here. It will be great to see him again.

Other than that there’s not much else to report. Politically there’s a lot going on in this city, in Nevada and the whole country. It just makes my head spin, to say the least. Can anyone say banana republic? Or fascist police state? Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I’m not in the middle of a nightmare. Unfortunately, the political circus which is currently unfolding could very well turn into one big ugly nightmare for sure.


But I don’t have the energy to rant right now. I wonder if that is some devious scheme of these perverts aka Tea Baggers/Republifucks/Christianists. To completely overwhelm us liberal thinking, free-spirit minded people with all their exaggerated lies and intimidation that eventually we’ll be so exhausted from their vile tactics and just simply give in.


Well, that’s not going to happen. And there’s still hope that more fair-minded voters will come to see through the empty rhetoric of these fearmongering dimwits come this November’s election and deliver one big surprise to these deceiving squallers. However...and you knew that was coming...I will not hold my breath.


For now though, I’m just happy it’s finally Friday and we’re slowly approaching a well deserved weekend. And no long list of household chores this time.


Except for doing laundry, buying groceries, dusting, vacuuming...


Darnit!
