Well, that’s another fabulous weekend over and done. Summer is just flying away.
Back when I started this blog my first post included a picture of the Advance Readers Copy of Jenny “The Bloggess” Lawson’s book, “Let’s Pretend This Never Happened.” Jenny is sooooo funny and the book was awesome, and she kept announcing cities for her tour dates that never included Minneapolis. Until the last one. Her current book tour finally included us!!!!! Friday after work I headed on out to the Barnes & Noble by Southdale with my ARC & my hardcover of the book, my camera, and Moose. 1/2 hour before Jenny’s book reading started it was already standing room only. It was worth it! She’s just as funny and adorable in person as she is on the internets.
Here is a picture of Jenny, Moose, and Jenny’s stuffed monkey, Copernicus.
Saturday, Rick & I headed up to the wilds of Coon Rapids for our friend Mark’s birthday celebration. There was lots of good food, and good drink, and good friends. Sometimes I forget just how many wonderful people we have in our life.
We’d ridden up to the party with Romeo. Just as we were about to get on the highway after leaving Mark’s house the tire sensor on his jeep came on. He’d run over something that punctured the tire and we pulled into a parking lot and watched it go completely flat. Luckily he had me & Rick there to change the tire. Rick jacked the car up & down, but I did all the tire changing work. It was kind of fun! I like knowing that if I ever had a flat when I was by myself I would know what to do.
This morning we did brunch at Pizza Lucé. The food was sooooo good! I had a breakfast pizza. I love those. They also have a Bloody Mary bar so you can mix your own. We’re definitely going to have to do brunch there again sometime.
This afternoon was the last day of the Minnesota Fringe Festival so Rick & I headed out to see the final performance of The Complete Works of William Shatner (abridged.) We knew we were going to love it because it was a comedy full of The Shat, and we not only knew the two writers, but half the cast as well. They did not disappoint. Damn, I know some funny people in theater here.
It was a terrific weekend full of lots of good friends and laughter. The best kind.
