Where are they?

It's Late on Friday Afternoon and I think I know where they are at, and when I say "they" I mean the deliciously delicious and refreshing beverage that is beer, never before has a beer been so required as it is today, yet I believe as much as they are needed right now, come Monday they will ratchet up the "needometer" a few more degrees.
I feel like I am one of those guys that flies planes into the middle of a forest fire. Like John Goodman in that movie. The movie where the guys fly planes into the fire storm and get as close as they can to drop the packages. The one where Richard Dreyfus is a ghost? right now I am in the airport terminal just relaxing, but by Monday My plane will be flying into that buzzsaw of a life changing event and I will get my divorce notch cut into my soul. Its a notch I didn't really want to ever get, but its coming and I will just deal. Such a shame is what it is, Its all so very stupid, but regardless, I painted myself into this corner. I am pretty sure on Monday they will be at the ALE HOUSE on Archer Road in Gainesville. Tonight they are at the LaLoggia on Flagler, in Miami. I hope we can get it all done on Monday so we don't have to go back on Tuesday.
This is my plan. Go have a few beers, come back and watch season 3 of Weeds tonight. Saturday I will do some laundry hang out at my pool where all the women are supposed to keep their tops on now, and then go to a Marlins game tomorrow night. Sunday I will drive the 332 to Gainesville and wait for Monday to come.

Hey good luck finding the beers, and if they turn up at the Ale House on Monday, maybe I will see you there.

On a side note, I think you should dub your bi-weekly trips "the 332 to the 352" . I think giving it a title also gives it a hipness.

For example, one of those top optional girls at the pool will say "Where is Bill this weekend?" and someone else will say "Oh he is doing The 332 to the 352."

Like someone might say, "He is running the Boston Marathon" or "Driving the Indy 500". See? Hipness!

I feel for you on getting the divorce notch. My ex and I had been separated for three years before ours was finalized, and even though I was seeing someone else at the time, I still cried when I found out the judge had issued the decree.

In other news, my claim to fame is that my dad lit the fire for one of those forest firefighter movies. I think it was the one where Richard Dreyfus was a ghost, but I'm not 100% sure.

So how was Weeds? ;-)

I'll be thinking of you on Monday. Stay strong.

quin, - My post from after I am actually divorced will reference the one day you remember from all others and it will be the day I get divorced because even though we have been seperated for over a year now this is still very depressing and very fucking sad for me. I do believe that will be a decent post because even though I have no idea what I am going to write, I feel it in my bones.
Minnow, I dont doubt that I will be crying a bit on Monday or Tuesday or whenever its over, I will probably also be drinking. its ok though cause the hotel is right by the bar ...
MKH -- I ended up not coming home in time to watch weeds, I basically just kept drinking all night instead of doing the part where I came home and watched weeds. You know though because I was drinking with yOU....
