Ah shoot, it’s Monday

I had such a magically nice weekend and I hated so much to let it go.

Mr. Pop took me out to our special restaurant (you know the one you go to for special occasions) Saturday night to celebrate the two year anniversary of Morning Martini. The food was wonderful as usual and of course the occasion called for two martinis.

Sunday we went to a big orchid show and came home with four new beauties. I picked out two and told Mr. Pop they were going to be my Valentine from him. He liked that idea. What guy wouldn’t?

Then for the topper, on the way home we had to stop by the bookstore and I found the day-to-day, “Bye-Bye Bush!” calendar for one dollar. Sweet! A month and a half ago it would have cost twelve dollars. Does anything drop in value as fast as a calendar in February? Just wondering.

So today it’s regular old Monday, but I sure do have some sweet memories of the weekend. I also have a calendar to remind me each day of some of the many reasons I cannot wait for this president to hit the road.

If he hits the road. There's a lot of troubling signs he might declare martial law, suspend elections, and him and Ol' Dick will stay in just as long as they please.

You know I was so not going to go there, but since lew brought it up...


Anyway it does sound like a delightful weekend and the Morning Martini is a good reason to celebrate!

Orchids, martinis and a good deal on a calendar.

FWIW it is 9 degrees here. Just sayin'... Maybe today I will call my blog "FreezingIam"

Sounds like a nice weekend and it was so nice of you to unburden Mr. PoP for Valentines Day. Definitely a two martini weekend.

Totally agree, as does 80% of the country. Why is he still he, can't we fire these guys when they are incompetent? WHY NOT?

it's funny how many people think that bush is leaving quietly. i mean really, after ALL that's occurred, do you really trust that the system will work? lots of people have fears about martial law possibilities. the rest are buying bush calendars? it's really sad, how much hope has disappeared.

Congrats on two great years, PoP. On you calendar, for a buck, I don't suppose you got one that with the power to skip months, huh?

You are right--I can't think of anything that plummets price wise like a calendar at this time of year. I don't want to even think about Bush anymore though--I am looking forward and hopeful that things will improve significantly.

I'm glad you had such a great weekend and what a great husband! Supporting you for your blog success is wonderful. My husband would be thrilled if I closed down my blog today and the thought of being on it for two years would probably cause him to throw my lap top out the window.

POP, that sounds like a groovy weekend. I hope you guys enjoyed it because I'm sure Bush will still fuck up at least a few more at some point!

ME, that's why you have to get a secret life. I blog for my work with the Department of Hom - nevermind.

Sounds like you and your dad had a good time in celebration of the 2 yr anniversary.

I think we will all be glad when Bush packs up. I still can't believe he was re-elec6ed in '04.

Wow PoP, Mr. PoP must be some guy to celebrate year two of blogging. Congrats...

As for Mondays, I'm thinking of two songs right now, one by The Bangles, the other by The Carpenters that fit the occasion.

Well, what a perfect weekend! Can you possibly top that?

And... I'm Canadian, and I can hardly wait for your president to hit the road. BUT... you guys have to get it right this time!

My friend and I were recently talking about the prevalence of technology in our day to day lives. Reading this post makes me think back to that debate we had, and just how inseparable from electronics we have all become.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Societal concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory falls, the possibility of transferring our brains onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could experience in my lifetime.
