A Holiday, Sweetman’s Date Night, A Bloghop, and More FREE Books

Happy Labor Day, everyone!

Today, I’ll be hanging with the Sweetman. Yesterday, his back went out. So I don’t know if we’ll be keeping the same plans of driving to St. Pete to go to the Dali Museum. We shall see.

Saturday night we were supposed to go to Tarpon Springs for their once-a-month Greek Night. I was so looking forward to spinach pie and baklava, but on the way home from work Sweetman called me and said, “Where do want to go for dinner? How about the Olive Garden?”

What, I thought. What happened to Greek Night?

“And we really need a new television for our bedroom. We need a flat screen so I figured we could go to the new HHGREG store.” Sweetman has been dying for a flat screen for the bedroom. And he drools for shopping.

Crap, I thought. I hate shopping. And I’m definitely not a fan of Olive Garden.

So I endured a fake Italian dinner and got dragged to a store that’s not to open until October. But he did haul me over to Best Buys and walked through rows and rows of flat screens.

Sweetman didn’t like the pricing. So he said, “Let’s go to Sam’s Club.”

That was our fun filled date night.

Hair Trivia Answer From Friday

Friday, I asked a question on Egyptian hair styles.  And nobody gave me an answer.

When I think of Egyptians, I think of their elaborate hair dos, which by the way are wigs. Back in the day the men even sported fake beards. They wore them strictly for holidays and religious ceremonies. On regular days they wore their own hair, which was a short do or a bald do.

LORD OF THE MULLETS

The Blurb

By working together, even an average person can change the world. For George, Billy, and Fred, three simple Rednecks from Trailer Country, it takes two evil witches to find these words true. From the valley in Beverly Hills, these powerful ladies launch a devastating attack against the entire world of Ekoda. Engulfed by delusions of conquest, they’re determined to destroy everything that isn’t their so-called perfection. During one of these brutal attacks, the people of Trailer Country fall victim to an evil curse. With their way of life threatened, the three Rednecks must overcome countless obstacles and nonstop assaults, and try to save not only Trailer Country, but the entire world. Packed with action, adventure, drama, and more twists than Rednecks can count with their shoes off, this comedy will leave you on the edge of your seat. So read on and enjoy “Lord of the Mullets”

  1. My husband wouldn't have wanted spinach either, but he didn't like shopping. His idea of good food was steak (rare) with whiskey at a really good steak house with a good western band. If it wasn't a steak house it was a good Mexican restaurant. Low class, maybe, but more expensive than Olive Gardens and sometimes a lot more fun.

  2. Hey Shelly! I love spinach pie! Too bad you had to go to the Olive Garden...I've never given the Egyptians a lot of thought, but it is interesting that they wore wigs..and they didn't even have a SuperCuts!
    Good luck on finding the perfect flat screen!

  6. I hate shopping too. I usually research online first and then ask my husband to go get it. And the worst part of the Olive Garden is the fakeness of it. And the excess of salt.

  13. In matters involving throwing the back out... best to stay in and order pizza. Just saying.

    1. I totally could have handled that but he was insistent on going shopping for a flat screen and fake Italian food.
