I Like to Make Love in a Tree-ee-ee

So, tonight I sadly missed an opportunity to hang out with my former neighbor and the author of one of my favorite blogs, "Circle Jerk at the Square Dance", Brando. He was in town for work and we were going to try to meet last night, but he got bogged down with work and then tonight, we were going to try again, but I got bogged down with teenagers. I'm bummed. Hanging out at George's eating cheeseburgers, drinking beer and watching the Cubs with a hilariously funny guy sounded just about perfect. On the upside, he said he and his wife, who is gorgeous AND cool may make it back to town at the end of July with their new baby. I believe that would be a triple bonus.

So, now I'm on the precipice of a three day weekend, and I couldn't be more giddy(or could I not be giddier?). Coadster has marathon show choir workshops all weekend long. (go ahead and laugh, I did) And Stinky has major plans to go to the pool as it's finally supposed to warm up here. Besides running as much as possible, I have a few plans. Tomorrow night, depending on the weather, I may go to my friend K.'s boyfriend's cookout. On Saturday, I have a friend coming into town and I told her I'd meet her and our other friend Shecky out. On Sunday, my friend Libby's husband R. is going to play jazzy stand-up bass with another guy who plays the clarinet in their backyard. I can't wait to hear them. How will you all fill your three days?

...And now for something completely different. Remember when I lamented the supposed demise of one of my favorite trees on campus after the ice storm?

Well, look what a little trooper it is. Sure, it looks a little Dr Seussy here, but I think it's holding up damn fine after its near death experience. Let's give a cheer for our happy little tree.

Last week when I was walking back from my break, there was a couple sitting in its branches getting all ready to make out. Then these two guys walked past and started singing a little song they made up that went something like this, "I like to make love in a tree-ee-ee..." And the couple immediately separated. Awesome.

Sweety and boo boo sittin' in a tree, k-i-s-s-i-n-g. First comes love, then comes marriage; then comes Sweety with a baby carriage.

It's race weekend in Ottawa and I'm so ready for the 1/2 M. with my bud Leigh. In fact there is a car load of us from the hosp. participating!!!!!!!! You're more than welcome to join us.

Sounds like a fantastic weekend.

Remiman; That's an awful lot to have take place in a tree.

That couple had no spine....if they had they would have carried on despite the serenades.

Have a fun three day weekend....enjoy it way too much and don't do anything I would not do. (very open to disaster if you take that advice)

fringes said...

Sooo happy your tree survived. You Iowans sure do have a lot of weekend activity options.

Minyo said...

Sounds like a busy and fun weekend planned. I'm going on a date with my wonderful hubby, putting down mulch, and hosting a family cook-out.

The tree story is funny...I agree, the couple should have continued what they were doing. Must have been a new relationship. At Christmas time, you could put some tinsel on that tree and dance around it...could look kind of Charlie Brownish then.

I love that tree! Congrats to it for making a comeback! It does look Dr. Seussy!

Those show choir workshops sound kind of fun, actually!

Have a very nice Memorial Day weekend.

That's so funny! Have a great 3-day weekend. I'll be in town but bogged down with wedding stuff...hooray?

TLB said...

Yes, we are going to be coming back through town in July with the bambino, provided everything goes well. Brando was sorry to miss you. I was sorry I couldn't make it. You know, being eight months pg and all really puts a damper on your travel plans.

Hope it was a good one anyway.

Haha! dmarks = funny.

The ice storm picture's fairy-tale wonderful. I love snow pictures. I even loved snow pictures when I lived among you snow-peoples.

I love them better now.

Here's to three day giddiness!

Churlita said...


I wish you lived closer. I just might take you up on that.


Some people live in trees. So, that could happen, right?


Thanks for giving me a free ticket to do just about anything.


I'm sure you have way more than I do.


Have fun on your date. I hope he isn't too forward...


She'll have a blast. They even have a sleepover one night.


have fun in IC.


I can't wait to meet your soon to be new baby.

Booda Baby,

Ice storms are so dramatic and beautiful.

Mr. Atrocity,

Dr. Seuss trees are the best. They remind me of what life is really like.

Have a fabulous 3-day! I'm trying to remind my children why I had them: free yard workers.

and also, maybe a ride down by the river on my new motorcycle. :D

Brando said...

I was sorry we couldn't meet up. Just one of those things where our best nights were the other's worst nights. I also would have liked to meet this hilarious guy you mentioned.

PDA is hilarious to me and that those guys sang that, got me reeling!
