That’s the Way the World Works*

Ever the “responsible” homeowner, I thought it’d be a good idea to mow the lawn this weekend in anticipation of throwing down some “weed and feed” in anticipation of the rain-promising cold front. I mowed Saturday afternoon and figured I’d spread the fertilizer when I found out what the rain forecast was. Yesterday morning, I was hearing better than 60% of some heavy rain and thunder. (Sweet!) So I promptly threw on my medium-duty gloves (with latex gloves underneath) to hand-spread the fertilizer (yes, I realize how maturbatory that reads).

So, of course, it sprinkled a few drops last night and a little more this morning. WOO-HOO! Dollar Weeds FOREVER!

As you can probably tell, our weekend wasn’t that eventful. It got off to a quick start, though, with a wedding reception Friday night, followed by much-needed potato casserole. Things slowed WAAAAAY down from there.

Tonight, my band is playing its first show in, like, two months. Opening for She Wants Revenge. Unfortunately, we’re going on at about 8:30, so we’ll be rockin’ the inattentive soundman, a couple bartenders, some bouncers, the door guy, Ms. Jazz Hands (maybe), and a handful of kids whose parents dropped them off too early. I’d take a sad picture from the stage, but we can’t find our digital camera.

  1. The term “weed and feed” makes me think you’re getting stoned and then getting the munchies.

    But I’m proud of you, you hardworking lawn-maintaining homeowner!

    You should have bought a condo like I did.  Lots of potted plants, no external maintenance required.

  3. THB: Funny, but Tallahassee isn’t much of a “condo” town.  However, they are TRYING to foster an “18-hour downtown” with several high-rise projects around town.  Condos.  But they’re CLEARLY not for the casual buyer, with relatively small one-bedroom condos starting well over $300K.  In Tallahassee.

    Marsh: Hey, I updated my links!

  7. Dollar weeds are cute.  And they’re green.  Isn’t that all any of us want for our lawns?  For them to be green?  And maybe not be so appealing to the neighbor’s dog? 

    I totally spaced on your show.  I had planned to be there.  Now I will have to wait until April to miss another one—uh, I mean CATCH another one. 

    Also—there is one tiny one bedroom condo available at the Kleman Plaza place that is going for around $180,000.  Just picture it—the three of you snuggled up in your very own 900 square foot luxury downtown apartment.

  8. Dude, will you come be my Lawn Care Specialist?  I’m lookin’ for some weed-n-feed action my own self. 

    also, the fact that you are terrified of fertilizer outs you as a giant pussy.  smile
