Friday Night in the Big Town: B-Ball, Kitchens and a Race

What’s up, readers?  How is things?  It’s me again, coming at you on Friday to tell you what to do this weekend.  So screw the farmer’s market.  No time!  Forget home improvement or garage sales!  Here’s your list of things to do.  What?  You were going to plant tomatoes this weekend?  Nope.  This is what you’re doing.

Here’s your Friday Night in the Big Town.

April 8:  Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Denver Nuggets

If I’m being completely honest with you readers, I have to tell you about this.  I think “nugget” is the funniest thing in the world.  Out of context, it absolutely makes no sense.  In context, it’s just plain silly.  If I go to a fast food place and order chicken nuggets, I usually tell the cashier that I want “nicken chuggets.”  There is no reason for this.  Just like the “ugget” part of the word.

Now, applying this to the game is easy.  The Thunder has a good chance because their name isn’t “the Nuggets.”  And I’m sure there are some odds on the game.  I don’t know for sure though.  Once I stopped bartending it meant that I didn’t regularly have to converse with bookies.  So, my sports knowledge has decreased exponentially.

April 8:  Casting for Ugly Kitchens

The majority of my kitchen appliances are the ones my parent’s got as wedding gifts.  Dear old Mom and Dad have since updated their kitchen, leaving me with some avocado-colored bowls and appliances.  But whatever.  That’s vintage, right?  Who knows.

Anyway, if you have an ugly kitchen, are super outgoing and think you were made to be on a reality TV show, have I got a deal for you!  I get the feeling you will have no control over this little kitchen makeover show.  Some designer will come in and make all the paint choices.  Maybe that’s good for you.  If not, you’re going to have to do the remodel on your own.  But if you’re an attention seeker who wants to be famous for a reality show, then may I suggest showing off your ugly kitchen?

April 9-10:  Redbud Classic

It may surprise you readers to know that I’m not a runner.  And I would venture a bet that anyone who gets their jollies from posting silly information on the internet isn’t either.

If you are a runner though, you already know about this.  And you’ve probably signed up.  Unless you’re planning to do the OKC Memorial marathon in a week or so.  You can’t run that much in one month after all!  In any event, make sure you drink plenty of water and stretch before each race.  But if you’re like me, you can stick to not stretching and just drinking beer on the couch.

Well, that’s all I have  for you this weekend, readers.  See you next week.
