Friday fragments

Whew, its been a busy work week for me! I count on having unscheduled time throughout the day to write my blog posts and catch up on all the blogs I read regularly, but this week its been a real challenge due to my work load. I'm still several days behind in reading others' blogs, but I will catch up.

Tues evening I dropped Big Ella off at the garage for a little 'fluffing'. There were a few items that need attention. I haven't heard from the shop yet, but its because they're always busy. I'll probably hear something early next week.

My friend Jared sent me this, which gave me a smile:

Spouse & I are going to the movies tonight. Not at the regular theatre, but a special film screening at the local GLBT community center, as part of the 'Another Take' GLBT film series. We always try to catch these. Tonight we're seeing "Watercolors".

Tomorrow evening we're going to a potluck dinner at Deb & Greer's, which should be fun. If we have time afterward, we'll slip over to Michael & George's for a little cocktail party to celebrate their 16th anniversary and Michael's birthday.

On Sun evening our realtor and friend Lee Ann has invited us and others for Thai food at her place. Spouse & I love Thai food and we love thinking about/speculating on/investing in real estate, so it should be a great evening.

A friend sent me this, which made me laugh out loud!
PLEASE - somebody find out where I can get this T-shirt!!! Wouldn't it make the perfect Christmas present for the gay who has it all?
As I predicted, last night's rainfall meant no work on our street today.

And the big news from this week is that Spouse & I have decided to move forward with the addition to our house. After interviewing 4 builders and getting bids/proposals from all 4, we confirmed everything yesterday with the builder we selected. The addition will be a 16 x 23 foot garage with a luxurious bathroom and big walk-in closet above it. More on this later.

Have a fabulous weekend, everyone!

Good luck with the reno.
I think the econmy is turning around now and this is the time to start investing again in one's home.
We've been working with painters to fix our dull facade and are looking for cabinet makers to rip out the wetbar in the living room and replace it with built-ins.

Have a good weekend Mark.

I love the marriage equality pic. I've got a message for our House Speaker on my blog, it's a perverted Seuss picture titled "My Foot, Your Ass".

The whole thing is really starting to piss me off. Lets see, we're denied legislative relief, denied judicial relief and we sure as hell aren't going to get it from RI Governor Donald the Asshat Carcieri. So what is left us? Armed rebellion.

Good luck with the new addition. Hopefully, they'll have your street done by then!

Let me know when you find out where to get that shirt!

And good luck with the reno. Just remember it's going to take twice as long and cost twice as much as the original estimate. And I'm not kidding, just so you know.

Hope you had a good weekend - I'm still on mine, it Victoria Day here in Canada!

Can't wait to hear more about the new addition!

That definitely sounds like a huge luxurious bathroom. Unless it's the walk-in closet that ends up huge. :-) I hope all goes smoothly.

That t-shirt doesn't seem like it would be hard to make with a photo iron-on transfer. I'm sure there's plenty of images on the internet that would suffice. ;-)
