Plans for the weekend…

This will probably be my last My Side for this week. I'll be leaving work early tomorrow to catch a plane for Portland, Oregon.

(Which reminds me, I need to call Tim tonight!)

By the way, did you catch that debate last night? Vicky and I both thought Shrub looked scared! I was shocked. Kerry was the one looking presidential and Shrub looked panicky!

Anyway, I have a few things to take care of before I go. I'll be voting tonight. (And hoping my vote gets counted!) I got myself onto the list of absentee voters so I won't have to used the new "Made by Republicans and Counted by Republicans" voting machines. Don't I trust Republicans, you ask? Sure, I do… just as far as I can throw them… into lava. (I'm sure to hear from Tim & Autumn that everyone in Oregon gets to vote that way. Sure, but in California we get sunshine!) Mind you, I never received my voting material - so I'll be spending some time on the web tonight… trying to make sense of things…

Then, it's all about packing (I'm co-opting Vicky's suitcase with my few things), eating dinner (Vicky's making "pad thai", which I'm probably horribly misspelling!), and getting my X-Box on! Oh, we have to move our sofa's out to the dumpster - Vicky and I will be getting new sofas next week - but the cats were starting to scratch them anyway. Mind you, if they scratch the new ones, I've given Vicky authority to use a spray bottle… and beat their fucking brains out!

All of this should culminate in us catching Alaska Air Flight 449 at 5:10pm (arriving at 7:24 in Portland, Tim & Autumn!!) and starting our first mini-vacation. Once in sunny Oregon, we'll don our winter clothes - it'll be raining, I bet - and basking in the warmth of Tim & Autumn's place. (Got the candy, Autumn???) We'll probably hit Mike's, home of the best damned shakes in the world (why couldn't they put it some place warm?), the Acropolis, home of naked women and incredible steak, and maybe even play a little PS2 - kick back - enjoy…

We'll be back on Monday, taking the day off. (Yes, this means no new My Sides until Tuesday. Deal!) I'll want to sleep in; Vicky will want to clean…

I hope you have a great weekend!

Nope it is really supposed to be nice this week-end in Portland! A nice 65 F for the high. I will be wearing shorts... Oh! scary thought... maybe you should bring winter clothes. I don't think it wil;l rain.
