To discuss a Weekend Update, visually speaking, and Feliz Navidad to all

This is going to be another busy week on Wild ARS, and I'm not just saying that to create a false sense of hope (I wait until Christmas for that).
If you read this post yesterday (in order for this week to make sense, un-"mark all as read" and read it. P.S. Thanks), then you should know this week is going to be a "Getting to Know Me" week. I've challenged you to each write a similar post and let me know about it so I can put together something with all the links...If you already said "yes," you're the best thing since slap bracelets.

Later today, I'll have a post that recalls one of my favorite high school stories. It involves hijinx, a car chase and mayhem. No, seriously. Tuesday, Southern Belle has something special for us, as she asks me some intimate questions, which I will blame on the liberal "gotcha" media. I hope she doesn't ask me about Russia or what newspapers I read. Later this week, there's some other good stuff cooking, and I'm not just talking turkey.

All I can say is there will be an "appearance" by a certain famous rapper, and an awards presentation...

On to the Weekend Update. This time, the Update is mostly visual, as Capricorn and I celebrated our faux-holiday, Feliz Navidad 2008, on Friday. Really, it was an excuse to drink margaritas at noon, trim my Christmas tree well before Thanksgiving and eat Mexican food. Jealous?

First, a few mostly context-free things I heard/saw/experienced this weekend:
  • New Kids on the Block on the American Music Awards: I appreciated their singing of "Right Stuff." But I still have a hard time listening to them sing about hooking up at a club. Is that before or after they tuck their babies in for the night?
  • Murder Mystery Dinner: Props to the people at my church for putting on an excellent program- my group solved the mystery, too. Murder mysteries should be done every weekend. I even know some people I'd like to have murdered.
  • An empty table: At a busy restaurant on Saturday, Capricorn, myself and two friends stood beside an empty table for 30 minutes. Wouldn't you know it, that's the table they sat us at. Am I missing something here?
  • The Office: I'm catching Capricorn up on this show; we're in the midst of Season 2. We just watched the episode when Michael grills his foot. I, too, like the smell of freshly cooked bacon in the morning.
On to the visuals...


-----------------
* Update on the Update: I would be remiss if I didn't tell you guys that, along with Feliz Navidad 2008, Capricorn and I also had our two-month anniversary this weekend. It seems like just yesterday I was at PetSmart with her.

You're risking eternal Christmas bad luck Andy - bad luck i tells ya!

However, you drink enough margaritas and eat enough enchiladas and you probably wont care...

I love the idea of a fake holiday. I think I'll borrow it!

Cadence said...

My friends and I have invented a holiday called Effenmilliejew Day. It is October 5. This past year was our third year...I wish you many many fun years of faux holiday fun!

Very cute, but as a Cuban I should tell you a real Feliz Navidad would totally consist of a huge roasted pork, yumm!

Mmmm....enchiladas, margaritas and Chihuahuas. 3 of my favorite things. (I don't eat the Chihuahua's though.) But it seems we should be from Mexico or something... :)

Dammit, it's British Invasion Week on my blog! I do have an old Proust Questionnaire you can use, though...

Yeah, this pretty much sums 'er up. Also, I feel like the New Kids tuck the babies in first and then hook up with girls like me. I mean, umm, yeah. Cough.

Oh. My. God. The verification word is "buggr". I'm losing it, here!

Lump said...

I need some enchiladas right now.

Andy said...

Amy- I'm hoping I can ward off the evil Scrooge spirits and still have a Merry Christmas
Sheila- Thanks for joining!
Herding Kittens- I fully encourage everyone to do likewise. It makes everything more exciting when you're celebrating a "holiday."
Cadence- I won't even try to guess what you do on that holiday. But I like it.
Jossie- I don't think Capricorn likes pork. However, next year we might eat some anyway, to be official.
Kellie- Yeah, and your blond hair has me thinking you're not Mexican, but it's fun to pretend.
Aine- Is Donnie Wahlberg as big of a stud in the bed as he makes himself out to be?
Lump- Don't we all...

JenBun said...

Awww, it seems like a lovely fake holiday.

¡FELIZ!

Miss Tiff said...

Sounds like you had a great fake holiday. Also the Murder Mystery Dinner thing sounds like something fun. I too know a few people I would like to have murdered. LOL.

~Sheila~ said...

I love the way you were able to lay out the pics with the captions at the bottom.

I also believe that the only way to catch-up on ANY series is to watch it from the very 1st season.
I make ALL of my friends do that. I never mind watching all of the episodes again!

The Office!! I LOVE the Office....Now, I'm gonna HAVE to learn more about you :)(mmm, as Rambler looks at camera and shrugs shoulders...I heart Jim)
