And off to another week of fun...

Ahhhh, Monday. How do I loathe thee, let me count the ways. Yes, ladies & gentlefrogs, it's the start of another fun week. Now, you might be saying to yourself in looking at the time of this post, "Nik, why aren't you at work yet?" Well friends, let me tell you why. I'm playing Ms. Responsible again. You see, as I type this, the folks from the landscaping place are ripping up (part) of what's left of our side yard & leveling it. Then they're gonna put down black dirt & sod to make our lawn look respectable again after our remodel. Yay! I was SO tired of the weeds that were starting to grow, & also the rocks & sand. I had no idea the soil was so bad! Yuk. So I'm hanging out waiting for the sod guy to get here so that I can confirm just what they're doing in the front yard (tearing the whole thing up vs. correcting the giant ruts that were caused by the backhoe when they drove it onto the yard). After that, THEN I will head to the SaltMine. Mr. Yuk says "BLECH!"

Ohhhweeohh... yoooooo! (LOL, yes, I watched Wizard of Oz last night.)

Crazy Motherfrakkers


So I don't know if you saw this news item from yesterday, but it indirectly impacted my day. You see, my mom works at the nursing home that this complete waste of air decided to kill his wife at. The victim worked at the nursing home, on the 3rd floor as a nurse's aide. My mom knew her - they weren't friends, but they said a passing 'Hello' in the hallway. The scary part was a) my mom was due to leave around the time of the shooting (3pm), & b) the woman was killed 3 cars down from my mom's car. My mom had to wait until 7pm to leave, as there were bullet casings under her car & thus was part of the crime scene. Luckily, my mom was fine (albeit quite shaken up), & so was her car (her co-worker's car, which was on the other side of her, had a bullet hole in it). Sadly, this poor woman left 2 small children, who basically lost both their parents in one stupid, crazy act. And caused one helluva mess.

As Jason so correctly pointed out, humanity sucks ass. Nobody screws with my mom; no one gets to make her cry, or be scared, or get upset. Stupid fucker should get the chair or the needle for what he did to his poor wife & kids, but OH NO we don't have that in Minnesota. Bah.

People suck.

Yes, I'm a sheep & do what I'm told. Per my little friend, here's a new post. He actually had a good post with a link to a really cool site. These webisodes (that's what they're called) are hy-sterical. And so very true.

In other news, I'm back to work, it sucks, but I'm dealing. I'm seriously considering making a change tho. The 2 hrs on the road each day (not to mention the gas it takes) is driving me nuts. I'm kinda toying with the idea of going back to school full-time. Not sure for what tho. All I know is I'm getting real tired of working in a cube farm. It sucks big donkey dick.

Other than that, not much going on. Oh, I have a bachelorette party on Saturday night. Yay big fun!

The Most Wonderful Week of the Year...

is about to commence! Every year beginning the Saturday after the 4th of July, the Dayton clan (& various relatives & friends, in different quantities & years) all head to Gull Lake in lovely Brainerd, MN for a week of sun, fun, boating, boozing &, most importantly, RELAXATION! It is one of the things I look forward to in the summer - strike that, it's THE thing I look forward to every summer. It's such a good time. Now, as many of you know, I don't swim, but I do go out in the boat & fish. And I definitely indulge in adult beverages! It's a wonderful time to recharge the ol' batteries.

We're definitely gonna have a full house this year - it'll be terrific! Hopefully you all have a safe & Happy 4th of July weekend. Much love!
