102 Degrees = Slip N' Slide

June 7, 2008

Ryan and I (in pure dorkness) were at Kmart last week (and might I add the Greece Kmart on West Ridge Road in Rochester is like a little ghetto of a store right smack dab in the middle of a prettty affluent suburb..but I’ll rant on that another time). We were there for some topsoil and compost, since we are redoing the garden bed along the back of our house. We got that, and then wandered over to the summer area where we stumbled upon a “Battle Blast” Slip N Slide…and HAD to buy it. Sure, we are 25 and 27 year old adults..but just because you’re old doesn’t mean you don’t still want to do kids things. If you don’t..you’re just lying. So yesterday it made it to 102 degrees here in Rochester NY..and today it was in mid 90s…What better time to break out the battle blaster slip n slide?! Is there a better time??? I think not. So we hooked the shit up, turned it on and poured some laundry soap and body wash all over it to make it extra crazy. We had the dorkiest..most hilarious time out there. We flew down that thing, despite the No adults warning, and had the best time doing it. We may have to do it again tomorrow. It was just too hilarious..and man was it nice on a day where it’s humid and 90s.

We spent the morning driving all over the place shopping for things. I had to go try on Bridesmaid dresses for my moms wedding which is in 3 months..Since bridesmaid dresses typically take 4-6 months to arrive from the date of ordering, I’m crunched for time..My mom -just- finally settled on them this week so I had to go try some on this weekend so I can order immediately. Of course, my blond ass chooses a bridal shop in Fairport NY..right smack dab in the middle of their Fairport Canal Fest Days thing. When I say right in the middle..I really mean right in the middle too. We had to practically bribe some yellow shirt wearing ‘security’ dude to let us park anywhere near the shop, ensuring him I was there because I -needed- to get to the bridal shop, not to walk around their fair. It worked out though, I tried on about 4 dresses, and am going to order one from Netbride.com since they didn’t carry the one I needed. I was able to try on some other ones though to get an idea of what style I wanted..and figure out what size to order. All they had to try on were a 6 and a bunch of 10’s n 12’s..I was swimming in the 10’s and 12’s, almost had the 6 on but the zipper wouldn’t finish cause my stupid boobs are just too big and just weren’t having it. I guess that’s a good thing though? I’m going to go with a strapless size 8 in Berry (deep red), B2 dress #9051.

After that whole thing we then went to Lowe’s to pickup a new grill for cooking up all kinds of yum gooodiess. The whole experience there was a clusterfuck. We had about 7 different people waiting on us and also waiting on other people. We got a Charbroil Stainless Steel grill, and rented one of their trucks to get it home since it was way to big for my sunfire. The grill on the plus side came with free assembly..so we took them up on that…Only to get home and realize that since the pre-assembled grills were sitting outside..they also apparently were easy to steal from. Both porcelain grates that sit above the burners were missing. Great! Why didn’t we look at that before we left? I don’t know..because I’m blond? Ry is too. Anyways, we called them and they told us a lot of parts had been getting stolen from grills altely and were more than happy to give us whatever parts we needed when we dropped the truck back off. So it worked out..It was just a bit obnoxious.

That’s about it for now. More soon. Really. Really-Really.
