Guys. I didn’t really try to tow a Yucca Plant out of the yard. Seriously. You’d have to be totally nuts to do that. You know. Nuts. Or you’d have to have a better angle. I can’t figure out how to do it without sending a Yucca crashing into the front porch or destroying the rest of the yard. But THAT is TOTALLY NOT what was stopping me. I’m totally sane. I swear.
Tonight I’m driving myself down to Austin where I’m planning on meeting a long-time internet friend who’s in town for SXSW. I haven’t met an internet friend in real-life in so long that I’ve almost forgotten how it goes. I’m sure it’s just like riding a bike, though, and I can’t wait.
Zack is not super excited about me being gone for a whole weekend without him. Not only am I going to Austin, Land That He Loves, he’s going to miss me. Going on vacation last month had the unforseen side effect of reminding Zack how ENTIRELY AWESOME it is to have simultanious weekends with me. Right now I have normal weekends and he has middle-of-the-week weekends. We’ve been operating that way for about half a year now, it’s it’s starting to wear on him. After we returned from vacation, Zack started morphing into one of those Koala Bear Toys that we used to have in gradeschool. You know the kind that you could latch on to pencils or notebook covers or rulers? The little guys that you pinched open and then a spring-loaded resistence caused them to tightly cling to whatever object you just placed their arms around? That’s Zack. Every night since vacation, he’s the Koala Bear and I am a notebook. This is appropriately interesting to me for several reasons, but mostly because I am really, really fond of Zack, notebooks and Koala Bears, in that order. So, it’s really a win-win.
So for now, I’m going to leave work, go home and get my cling on (heh) before I leave for the weekend. Maybe if Zack and I put our heads together, we can figure out an idea yucca-towing angle before I head out of town.
