It’s the weekend, so the moonshine grid is open

America is certainly not the center of the universe, but lately it’s been feeling like we should start stocking up on canned goods and jugs of water. Between the looming threats of the San Andreas fault and, ahem, other matters, it just seems like a good time to be prepared.

Hey weekenders! Got any big plans for the day? Anyone going whitewater rafting or spelunking? Well, I’ve got some plans that should be an adventure–my first acupuncture appointment. Before you get all judgy and tell me how boring that sounds, keep in mind that a) I’ve never had it done before, and b) I’m in a lot of pregnancy-related pain that modern medicine can’t deal with, so I am very excited.

Someone’s got a birthday in the house…and that someone is us! To celebrate, we’ve got Moscow Mules and a variety of seltzer flavors for those who don’t want to party too hard. We even rented an espresso machine–someone hold my drink while I fiddle with the steam wand, okay? Grab a sparkly hat, some of those noise makers from the basket on the table, and let’s get down and party.

Who’s ready for the best day of the week? I sure am. I’ve got my fancy party dress all ready, the one with plenty of tulle, and a pile of sparklers and poppers to add to the festivities. There’s some drinks on ice, some chips and homemade guacamole, and a turntable with a stack of LPs ready to go. Trust me–this is no April Fool’s joke! Let’s get this party started!
