Having a nice Meme-orial Day

It's been a wonderful weekend so far, watching my parent's house, spending half the time with the kidlets (like last year, X and I have flipped the schedule) and almost the entire time with my new love.

New love and I took the brood out to "Territory Days", a kind of street fair in Old Colorado City that's an annual excuse to cram too many people into a really small place so that everyone's forced to brush up against booths hawking overpriced crap - for the most part, crap that jingles in the wind, creates wind, and/or is largely as forgettable as the wind. Nonetheless, with painted faces stuffed full of cotton candy, the wee ones wandered through the rabble without insisting they needed they needed this or that or they wouldn't, rabble be damned.

Time and time again, I saw that strategy used on other parents (and the saps feeding into it) but I have to say my lil' ones didn't attempt it even once. Must have been the cattle prod...

My love did fold on me and my "oh get me that, oh get me that, oh get me THAT," and bought me this COOL Australian hat (but only because it looks soooooo good on me!). I post the pic as a two-fer and satisfy Crystal's desire for moobs.... god, I hope ya' haven't had yer Wheaties yet...

As you can tell - I got nuthin'. Sans anything, I'll fall back on a meme (via Sarah at Anon Y. Mass). Sometimes you just gotta' unzip it and let it flow all over some stranger's front quarter panel, there's no reason to wait. Especially if no one's looking.

ooooh a used cd store. I have not yet found a good used cd store in Memphis. I HAVE found some awesome ones online, so that makes up for it, somewhat.

I just need to win the lottery to be able to support my music addiction. *sigh*

Sounds like a fun weekend, we had our local street fair, too. Lots of rides!

You're thin - so what's all this ruckus about MOOBS???? P-lease. Go eat some cheesecake and THEN write to me about MOOBS.

Also, given your enthusiasm about exposing your he-boobies, would it be Meme-orial Day or Mammarial Day?
