Roughing It — Kind Of


Here’s Anthony sitting in the tent in the backyard where I promised him we’d camp over the holiday weekend. We’re doing Night 2 as I post this. Perfect night for it, too.

Ah, camping. There’s nothing like being one with nature, being free of the hassles of the daily grind, hanging out with Satan…

Wait, what?

Here’s a picture I took of the roaring firepit where we made S’mores on Saturday night:

ZOMG!!1! It’s the face of The Dark Lord himself! Beelzebub! Mr. Scratch! Old Nick! Belial! George Bush! Mephistopheles! Der Leibhaftige!


Ahem. Come on now, people. You know damn well that that’s not Satan so don’t embarrass me. I mean, you’d expect him to be in a pit of fire, right?

But I’m sure he’d tell some kick-ass campfire stories…

Busy, Busy, Busy

So in case you don’t hear from me this weekend…

Friday: Work and then off to the Orange County Fair for an evening of food, fun and more food. This is the one time of year when the Rules of Healthy Eating go out the window and I enjoy myself. How can you not with all those foods on a stick?

Saturday/Sunday: I am going camping with The Kid at a local park and will only have my phone. This will be our first camping trip so it should be interesting and a lot of fun. For a small fee, everything is provided so we won’t have to worry much about anything.

With that, I’m off to eat breakfast, make my lunch and then head to work. Make it a great weekend!

UPDATE: The Fair was pretty much a bust this year. While we got in for $5, half off the standard price, I just wasn’t into it this year. I mean, really not into it. Two reasons come to immediately come to mind:

  • My favorite food vendors weren’t there, which was a real bummer. No Egg Roll on a Stick, no Ten Pound Buns, no cream puffs–on a stick or not. Pretty depressing since this is the one time of year I let my healthy eating habits slip and allow myself to indulge.
  • This new job of mine pays half of what I used to make, which equates to half the fun. We didn’t even go do the normal free things this time around; we just wanted to leave a few hours into it. And that’s pretty sad.

All in all, it was a rather dismal trip to a place I used to enjoy very, very much.

Thanks for the layoff, Learning Tree. You’ve made my life so much better.
