Whew! Busy morning. Trying to get stuff wrapped up at work so I can take a four-day weekend with Monday and Tuesday off, and I have about 41 different things to get done. The last time I took vacation, Hanin from the Blind Bear took a video of me dancing in my chair and posted it to Facebook. But that’s OK because I own my behavior and am not afraid to laugh at myself. After all, I did it. It’s not like I have the right to completely flip out on her and scream, “How DARE you post that HORRIBLE video of me???!?!!?!!!!” Some people would though.
Jeannette has promised good chair dancing music when I come to the Bear for lunch on Monday.
The Flying Saucer’s annual Oktoberfest is tonight starting at 6 PM. For $20 you can sample 12 Oktoberfest and pumpkin seasonal beers. There will be music by the Oom-Pahsters, a brat-eating contest, and a stein-raising contest.
The movie Spider-Man will be shown at Beale Street Landing tonight at 7.
The Ride to Fight On benefitting the West Cancer Center departs from the FedExForum at 8 AM tomorrow.
The annual Fall into Art contest happens tomorrow at the Memphis Farmers Market. Submit your paintings, sculptures, photographs, and any other medium by noon tomorrow at the market. Art will be judged by an MFM committee with the top pieces on display at the market next Saturday for voting. Winner will be announced at the Barnyard Ball on November 1. Live music tomorrow by Jon Dillard at 7:00, Bean at 8:30, and SwampKatz at 11. 7 AM-1 PM, Front at G.E. Patterson.
Monday, October 13 is No Bra Save the Tatas Day for breast cancer awareness. Breast cancer research is very important and I encourage all women to take part in this. PRO TIP: Tube tops are great to wear on No Bra Day.
From the MBJ: St. Jude’s fundraising arm ALSAC plans to restore a 1911 building across from BRIDGES on A.W. Willis.
Insane Clown Posse plays the New Daisy tomorrow at 6 PM. Remember when they were on WCW for a brief minute?
All right. Time to eat the Triple Layer Nachos I brought back from Taco Bell. There is not enough Fire Sauce in the world to make these things taste good, but what can you expect for a dollar, I suppose. (Inside joke: Some people would expect a bowl of pasta for a dollar) I’ll be out after work to kick off my four-day weekend. The “mayor” of the Silly Goose has to be away tonight, so perhaps I will go there and fill in for him.
