Here Comes the Friday

Today is more than just Friday. Today a good friend of mine is getting married and I am going to the wedding. Even better than that, I am not part of the service at all so I get to just enjoy it and have fun. No tie for me tonight and that is always a great thing. I hate ties. I never understood their purpose or function outside of being a silk slave collar, but ties and the evil they contain is not the purpose of this “It’s Friday.” Today we celebrate the wedding, the easy Friday, and leaving work early.

The usual roadblocks I encounter on Fridays seem to be on vacation today as well. I have gotten most people confirmed already for the weekend. I had to make a few deals to get it all covered, but everyone seems to be on the same page today and understands the urgency. They are agreeing to overtime without any real arguments. They are taking the overtime and accepting “I owe you one” from me. I am taking furious notes as well to make sure I do not screw any of them over either. Notes are a bad memory’s best friend. They are helping me this weekend so I owe it to them to keep my promises. Trust is a two way street and I must carry my end.

The temptation to write some partisan story today is almost unbearable. There is so much in the news today and it is all so juicy. This is the final Friday before the election so it is the last chance to dominate a news cycle. Both the left and the right are just emptying their closets for the media today with nasty stories flying back and forth. Most are lies, some are spin, there is the nugget of truth hidden in a few, and the rest are just plain old political opinions dressed up as facts and truth. I made a promise to stay above the trash and I will keep it. I posted my endorsements last night and that is as far as I will go with that. Just make sure everyone votes. I do not care for whom as long as you make the effort. I want to see an over 50% turnout this Tuesday. We can do it.

Happy wedding to your friend. And good for you on both counts -- no tie and no Friday hassles. I do think guys look pretty sexy in ties occasionally, though.

Anyway... Stuff just keeps leaching out of the political closets. Lord only knows what else will seep out between now and Tuesday. I'm with you -- I'd like to see a heavy voter turnout.

Dude, this you big night to get some young honey naked.......Comb your hair, throw some good cologne on, (obsession if you have it), and put on your dancing shoes....

Before the wedding shake hands with all the available women, during the cermeony make eye contact with the ones that look wistful, and after the wedding focus in on the best looking one that is drinking the most.....

Its a sure reciepe for suckcees!

I think I do have obsession. I cannot dance at all. Even a little, but I do have Xanax to keep me calm. I am no good in crowds. Wish me luck =D

Good luck.......my advice, drink heavily, but not as heavily as the doe you target for the 'kill'......
