weekend forecast

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by 3 crotch grabs, May 14, 2004.

  1. alright, follow me on this one. my wife reads over my shoulder when i'm on the internet. and she thinks some of you people are quite humorous. (no offense) now, she goes to fashion bbs's, and they have a weekly tradition called "weekend forecast" where all these cute little fashionista's tell all the other cute little fashionista's what they're gonna wear, and how hip they're going to be. anyway, she twisted my arm until i agreed to throw a weekend forecast on here. i changed some of the questions to be slightly more reasonable, but i left some for the complete absurdity of it all.

    copy the blank one, and fill it out. there's a nice shiney nickel waiting for the person with the best answers.

    Okay, I'll play…

    What to wear: Day time, jeans and T-shirt. Night time, birthday suit. What else is there?
    What NOT to wear: Big belt buckles - they scratch the back of your bass and make you look like a Bush supporter
    What to shoe: I think this weekend, I shall wear - hmmm, yes - I think I'll wear the same damn tennis shoes that I wear nearly everyday (the only pair I own) - Unless I'm feeding animals and cleaning stalls then I wear boots.
    What to handbag: I like my wife's handbag - I got 4 cigarettes and a dollar out of it this morning...
    What to hair: Yeah, my hair is 1/4" long. I am due for a trim, I might cut it to 1/8"
    What to makeup: okay the only time I've ever had makeup on is just a little lipstick ring... oh - nevermind.
    What to read: Reading poisons the mind
    What to see: I want to see my dog house get built this weekend, I want to see some more veggies planted in the garden, I want to see my car get washed, I want to see my wife for some -ahem- "quiet time" after the kids go to bed.
    What to listen to: Traditional Blues. And, or course, Motley Crue's 'Shout at the Devil'
    What to eat: (resisting urge to make another tasteless joke) I'd like steak for dinner, although I think we're having brat's tonight and that's okay too, maybe steak tomorrow...
    Where to eat it: at the kitchen table
    What to drink: A full pot of coffee every morning, milk with every meal, water between meals and Coors Light on the rare occasions I choose to indulge in alcoholic beverages. Was that a boring question, or did I just have a boring answer?
    Where to drink it: home
    Secret Weapon: I can flick boogers with frightening velocity and uncanny accuracy.
    Where to travel: Uh, I've got to go to the hardware store. Either my wife or myself will need to go to the grocery store. My god, am I really this boring.
    Current GAS: None. I need to get a 215 cab fixed and I need to join a working band. I don't need any gear. (okay, I should leave work right now - I'm obviously sick…)
    Rodent of the week: Bats! Let's hear it for flying rodents, woo-hoo (almost every night this week I've thought I could hear my puppy whining after he eats his dinner out side my bedroom door, right about dusk - but when I go out and check on him I realize that it's bat's I'm hearing and not a whining pup.)
    Can't Live Without: In order: Oxygen, Water, Food. Duh!
    Prefer not to live without: Women(wifey) / music / or the electric bass guitar. And honey roasted peanuts.
