Down time on a Saturday…

Yeah. I guess having some down time on a Saturday makes Empty and I silly. But in case you couldn’t tell, Empty’s working today. Working on improving his Rock Band scores. In a cape. Part of his costume for ConnectiConn this year.

I’m the paparazzi taking pictures and video of him doing so! Where’s the video you ask, I’m currently working on putting it here on my blog, but it might not work… We’ll see…

An update: I put it up on my Facebook page…

Girls Night Out

Saturday night, a few of the girls and I went out to the Olive Garden. Sasha, Basha, Kasha, and I ate and talked alot. No one drank, because we’ve never have had a reason to together. Even back in High School, we never had to. We brought the party wherever we went. Since we haven’t all been together in awhile, we had ALOT to talk about. The waiter was sweet, and joined in with our talk from time to time. Gave Sasha some advice, some extra mints, and a card saying “good luck with ____ .”

The blank is actually the reason we had a lot to talk about. She’s really excited about that blank, but since she hasn’t told her boss yet, she’s told us to keep things anonymous if we were going to talk about it online. That’s basically what’s complicated. And why I’m loath to keep real names and tell you what Sasha’s news is.

Anyway… After dinner, we decided to walk the food off while we talked. Ended up walking the strip by the Olive Garden. We found Petsmart, so we decided to oogle the fish and other pets up for adoption. After the stores on the strip closed, we decided we should go somewhere to keep chatting.

We ended up going to a nearby bar/ pool hall. Found a racing game that Sasha and Kasha decided that they really wanted to play. Played 3 games of pool. But, before we started to play we had to wait for a table to open up. While we waited, we decided what names we were going to give people if they asked and to choose songs we wanted to hear from the Jukebox.

We decided on Sasha, Kasha, Basha and JoJo. (Actually, Basha was the only one I can remember right now. But for the sake of the story, I decided to use rhyming names. You’ll have to excuse me. My writer’s side is showing through.) Apparently Silver sounds too much like a hooker’s name. You don’t want a hooker name in a bar.

I don’t remember who won the games, but it was pretty dead even. Basha and I were on a team, while Sasha and Kasha were on the other. We took a bunch of photos! I included the best of the best! Hope you enjoy them!

Busy Busy Bee

Hi. It’s been a busy Soccer season so far. I’m running for the Age Director position in Naugatuck at the 5/6 age level. I’ve also been coaching a team up that way as well. We’re the white team. I know, I know. White and little kids aren’t a good mix, but it was the only jersey color left that wouldn’t make my kids overheated on the warm days of this season.
My players wanted to be called The White Winners. No matter what I did, could put them off it! So that’s the name going down in the books, I suppose! They’re so cute, and I have to admit that I’m falling in love with every one of them. It DOES help that I finally remember all of their names to their faces. That’s always a plus. I have to admit, it usually takes me several games to get them all straight. . .
They’ve already improved SOOO much as a group since the first practice. Can’t wait to see how they handle the rest of the season!
Here are some photos that were taken during the first couple of games. I picked the ones where the kids weren’t facing the camera as much to protect them.

Let’s see, other than that, not too much has been happening.
One of my friends has some news, but I won’t tell you which one, or what the news is. She’s excited, but the situation is complicated, at the very least. We’re all excited for her, so that’s cool.
Had a Girls Night Out on Saturday night and celebrated this news. We had TONS of fun that night. I’ll show you the photos and tell you more details in a later post. I changed my friend’s names to protect their identities. Sorry to say, but the identities of those near me is none of the public’s concern. Sorry if it seems I’m mad. I’m not. Just overly-cautious, is all.
