Feasto, Baggo, Beacho

I’ve commented on this before, but I find it so funny that when I talk politics (as I did on Friday), I tend to get few (if any) comments. But when I talk about frivolous things (day-to-day observations, silly things that annoy me), I’ll get comments. Hmmm – maybe my audience is telling me something.

I’ll take the hint and ramble on about nothing…and everything.

On Friday night, Randy and I walked through this weekend’s North End Feast. I have no clue who the saint was, but it was a small feast. The two big ones are next weekend (the Fisherman’s Feast, which we’ll miss since we’ll be in Virginia) and then the following weekend (August 24-27) is the biggie: St. Anthony’s. WOO HOO.

During the day on Saturday we went to Costco to pick up a few things for that evening’s barbecue. Would you think less of me if I told you I bought clothes there? I did….seriously. A Kennth Cole shirt for $14.99, Calvin Klein pants for $19.99, etc… They look good on me, dammit – stop judging.

The barbecue that night was a huge success. The weather was a bit warm for my taste, but the company (18 people or more) and food and games were great.

We finished off the weekend with a day at the beach: Crane Beach. Randy, Marin, Roger and I drove up in the early afternoon and left as the sun was setting. It was an absolutely gorgeous day and since the tide was receding the entire time we were there, we got to witness some pretty spectacular sea life. Hermit crabs, snails, clams, and some bizarre sea-weedy type thing that looked like the top of sliced off soda bottle that had turned gelatanous and then sand stuck to it. It’s very difficult to explain. I took a photo and will post it here (but the photos are still on Randy’s camera). Anyway, these little gel/sand ring things were all over the place.

And now it’s Monday and it’s raining. I’d make a clever reference to a Carpenter’s song, but I’ve done that on here before… a lot. I need to think of some new jokes.

    Oh poodle, we’re just a bunch of silly people. 🙂

    And I have been known to buy some of my clothes from Target. Weirdly, I have gotten many compliments on the shirts I have gotten there. Go figure.

    I think your take on DOMA is extremely original–at least not like anything I’ve heard expressed elsewhere. Right now, Hilary is my candidate–I think a Clinton/Obama ticket (in that order only) is actually electable given some recent poles that indicate even a huge number of Republican voters concede that she would win if she became the candidate. Yes, she’s got the balls and has learned from a couple of mistakes. Romney has to be stopped at any cost and I think she’s the [only] one who could do it.

    Of course, no matter who wins, it will be so nice to have a President who speaks English again.

    Oh, and I really don’t care where you buy your clothes.
