British Invasion

(that's Guy Fawkes, people)

Where to begin ... where to begin ...

I haven't blogged all week. I have been too busy reading Katherine's blog. What the hell? Where does this girl find the time to work? Or work on her thesis? Or apply all of the product she is constantly reviewing? Seriously, KPack, do you ever sleep?

I am so excited that Jonathan's BFF, Andy, is coming to visit tomorrow! And then I realized that he will really only be at our house for like 3 days. Somehow that slipped my mind. After that he and Jonny travel up to New York to visit their other BFF, Dustin, and do whatever it is a bunch of guys do for a week in New York. I know they are attending a taping of the Maury show on Thursday. In fact, I am 150% sure they are doing that on Thursday. Sorry. That was a little Maury show humor. Jonathan is sort-of an addict.

I emailed the DWAFS, inviting them over on Sunday night for a bonfire to meet Andy and eat s'mores. (Jonathan made fun of me for calling our firepit a "bonfire" but what else would you call it?) Andy emailed me back and asked me if we would be setting off fireworks and celebrating Guy Fawkes Night since it is sort-of close to November 5. I asked Jonny what celebrating Guy Fawkes Night entails. Would we need a real bonfire? He said we would need to burn an effigy. I said we could go get one of those scarecrows they are selling at Wal-Mart and burn it in the back yard. What a night of drunken revelry that would be! Our grass (what little we have) is so dead and dry our whole yard would probably catch on fire.

I'll consider it, though, because the DWAFS are such anglophiles. It might be really fun to celebrate Guy Fawkes Night. Especially since we will have an honest-to-God Englishman in our midst to show us how it's done!

I'm stuck at a desk for eight hours a day! I can't be away from my desk for more than a few minutes, and since I kick ass at my job, I always finish my work really fast. I hope my blogs are at least interesting to read?

Remember, remember the Fifth of November,
the Gunpowder Treason and Plot....

Como what?

It's the Guy Fawkes Night chant...song? Poem? Who knows?

"Remember, remember the Fifth of November, the Gunpowder Treason and Plot. I see no reason why Gunpowder Treason should ever be forgot. Guy Fawkes, t'was his intent to blow up King and Parliament. Three-score barrels were laid below to prove old England's overthrow; By God's mercy he was catch'd with a dark lantern and lighted match."

Useless sh*t that's stuck in my head.

That or she really knows how to work the Google search engine.

I think the "fifth of November" part was in a movie. Possibly a creepy movie. Or maybe it's just creepy that Adrienne just knows sh*it like this.

Retainer Girl said...

And kudos to me for effing up "sh*t."

Dark Fury said...

A. The first part was in the movie "V for Vendetta" which kicked ass.
