Oh no!

I missed the Filthy Lie this weekend. I hope that Harvey doesn't revoke my Alliance Membership. I did manage to get the round-up done earlier today so that should help.

Basically what happened was Friday, when I normally type up my entry (I know, procrastination is my middle name) I got really slammed at work. We did some major remodeling to the store, which took up a lot of time. And energy. And I was too beat at the end of the day to do it when I got home.

Saturday dawned cold and dreary. No problem as I was taking the opportunity to sleep in. Then I went outside to mow the lawn... some parts of it for the first time this year. But as I was getting the mower out, I was asked to make an emergency trip to the Sam's Club for business supplies. (One of the drawbacks to living next door to work is getting asked to do errands on your own time.) No problem. I figured that I could run to the store and be back before the Sabres game easy.

I did. And the game was great to watch. Buffalo won 3-2. And I looked cool in the Sabres t-shirt I picked up at Sams.

OK, the Sabres game ended and I went outside to mow... hay my back yard. I got about half way through it before I couldn't get the mower to restart. (I was practically pull starting it around the lawn. Long, wet grass tends to bog down a mower, don't you know.) I yanked the sparkplug out. Very carbonized. It's my dad's mower and he hadn't changed the plug since.... well, ever I think.

So a trip up to the hardware store later, I was back mowing the lawn. (Clearing the air-filter really helped it run better too.)

Eventually, I finished the 30min job in just under 2 hours. And since I was so physically beat from all that, I had no choice but to play World of Warcraft for a while. (I'm still working on leveling up a Rogue alt.)

And that's my lame excuse for why I never got a filthy lie written.

(I suppose I could have just spent this time writing a filthy lie, but where would the fun been in that?)

All you would've had to do is say that after all your running around, you discovered that the NSA records of Glenn's phone calls had been mysteriously deleted, even though you KNOW you'd seen them Friday morning :-)

And maybe say that someone had poured a puppy shake into your lawnmower's gas tank.
