But Friday, Never Hesitate

Coadster during her show choir performance.

I cannot wait for tomorrow night. I'm really embracing my Friday night couch potato movie night. It's been a busy, busy week. Tuesday was the only night I didn't have to go anywhere, except to run at the rec building.

Coadster after the show. Still smiling.

Tonight was the second show choir performance of the week. I have to get up at 6:30 on Saturday morning to take Coadster to the bus for their first competition in Wisconsin. They stay the night there, so I won't see her again until Sunday afternoon. Wah.

I think this has been the best year for them. They finally seem to have it all together and with as kitschy as it is, I thought it was pretty damn entertaining. They had a photo shoot after the performance and it seemed to last forever. I got bored waiting, so I just kept taking photos. As I said in the last post, Coadster is extremely expressive and I tried to capture as many of those expressions as I could.

She's starting to get a little fidgety here.

I already said that I'm vegging out and watching movies with Coadster tomorrow night. (Stinky almost always has plans, so I'm assuming she'll be at a friend's house) I wanted to stay home on Saturday night as well, but a friend that I didn't get to hang with on NYE, has the night off with her husband to go to a belated Christmas party. She wanted to get a drink after that, since they already had a babysitter. We've both invited other people, so if everyone shows, it could be crazy good times.


Her patience is wearing thin.

I might also go see a movie at FMDM's place before that. He he has a documentary that's a counterpart to King of Kong: A Fist Full of Quarters. He said it's more about everything surrounding the first video game olympics and the Life magazine photo shoot with all the gamers in the early 80's. I guess there's a lot of film of Twin Galaxies and interviews with the gamers in the competition and the cheerleaders in the photoshoot. Since I graduated with all of those girls, I think it could be pretty interesting. I also want to see if they show the Centipede machine I always used when I was in high school.

Completely and totally over the photo shoot. Can I go now? How about now? Can I go now?

So, that's the plan right now and the plan usually changes some between here and Sunday. How about you? What's your weekend plan? Will you be watching documentaries about your hometown or going out with your crazy hot friends or both?

You're a very proud mom and it's very apparent with this post. Coadster's bored expression looks so much like you.

I will not be watching documentaries about my hometown. I've told you many times, Sleepless in Seattle is fiction. That Singles movie however, that's a documentary alright.

Love the photos - Coadster cracks me up. I am staying in my apartment/couch/bed tonight except for a quick trip over to work to peek in on a dance performance (the go-go dance class! Awesome!). It's cold and snowy and crappy here. Tomorrow I am cleaning the bathroom, sorting papers, and hanging things on the walls. Yea! Then movie double-feature of some kind...and prep for art classes. All alone and all as slow as possible...

Love the shots of Coadster...you're right, she is extremely expressive!
Hope you're having a great weekend. Mine will involve a belated b-day party for Girlie Girl featuring about 10 of her closest friends. Pray for me.

I rocked Centipede back in the day. Still dream of putting one in my basement someday.
