Bad news, it’s not even 10. Good news, it’s Friday! Only 7ish more hours until you can celebrate your short lived freedom. Whether you were crunching numbers or digging ditches, celebrate the fact that you made it through another grueling work week. At the end of the day, we’re all just doing one thing anyway…
What a time to be alive! I’m hoping we’ve all recovered from Cinco de Mayo by now. If you lost money on the Derby, I’m sorry and I feel your pain. Missed the tri by a nose. Damn. What kind of idiot doesn’t put Good Magic in 2nd in the tri? Me. That’s who. Oh well, we live and we learn. We’ll get em next week at The Preakness. Anyway, it’s finally acceptable to wear shorts and that really fires me up since I have a dozen pairs of birddogs now*. I hope the weather holds for a little while because this is actually nice. Would be tight if I could enjoy a few months of Summer this year.
This is a strange weekend. It’s almost like the universe knew we would need a buffer weekend between Cinco de Mayo/Derby and Wine Stroll. Thankfully we’ve got a nice little break with Mother’s Day Weekend. Let’s try to be a little less shitty and thank our moms for not aborting us and all the other things that they do for us all the time. Whether they’re here or not, just take a minute to appreciate them.
Speaking of the upcoming Wine Stroll, I’ll be abstaining from beer this weekend. It’s not that I’m trying to take it easy for a weekend, I’m just trying to increase my ability to function while being wine drunk. I’ll be putting my body to the test this weekend with a hilarious amount of wine. Not really sure what to expect from this event, so I’ll probably end up mixing my whites and reds until I can’t see straight. Should be a good time.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got this week. Let’s do our best not to be shitty people and enjoy life. Have a weekend. Love you all.
On to the music…
First up, we’ve got a new little tune from John Mayer. Love me some John Mayer. I need to be on a boat listening to Neon right now. This is not Neon. This is new. Enjoy.
This is Neon
Speaking of Summer, I’d be an idiot if I didn’t include this when talking about songs that remind of me of sunshine and cold beer.
Finally, the greatest Summer song ever made
