The first exciting weekend thing happened on Friday morning, when Bossy and her friend Martha took a long walk through the pounding snow:
Bossy and her friend Martha couldn’t get over the enormous flakes, and how the snow hung thick and magical from tree limbs and utility lines, like a Dr. Seuss illustration:
Bossy and her friend Martha walked in the middle of the quiet snowy streets to the nearest major intersection so they could warm themselves in a Starbucks coffee bath.
And then Bossy’s friend Martha pointed out that whenever Bossy drinks her icy Orange Mango Banana Vivanno, a rectangular section of Bossy’s bottom lip turns blue! Silly Bossy! Silly Martha!
And then on Sunday, Bossy thoroughly cleaned her living room and dining room in preparation for the upcoming Thanksgiving dinner she is hosting.

I’m actually kind of glad there’s no pictures of Bossy’s hangover!
corrie saysNovember 24, 2008 at 10:33 am
Only Bossy could have a riveting post about not much, including no photos! I am looking forward to minute by minute updates on the Thanksgiving preparation schedule, planning and cooking!
🙂 happy day to you!
linda Carson saysNovember 24, 2008 at 10:41 am
If Bossy is not too hungover to navigate over to my place, there’s a giveaway going on.
Heather saysNovember 24, 2008 at 10:42 am
Have Monday after football hangovah here…
UGH… Send some snow here – so I have stick my HEAD in it.
Heather saysNovember 24, 2008 at 10:43 am
See I typed have instead of can…
OOoh Hep me mommy.
Twenty Four At Heart saysNovember 24, 2008 at 11:08 am
Snow?? What’s SNOW?
vuboq saysNovember 24, 2008 at 11:24 am
I am intrigued about the missing hours. Wha’happan? Where you go? What you do? Oh, the mystery! The Drama! The Suspense! It is killing me.
Cat saysNovember 24, 2008 at 11:33 am
I spent most of the day on the couch as well, but with an entirely different kind of hangover.
David saysNovember 24, 2008 at 11:38 am
I had a glass of wine on Saturday.
MamaMo saysNovember 24, 2008 at 11:54 am
Walking – good (saves gas); supervising hubby’s cleaning – good (saves energy); but an ORANGE MANGO BANANA VIVANNO SMOOTHIE FROM STARBUCKS! – oh no! has Bossy fallen off the poverty wagon?! is that what caused the drinking binge?! 😉
MariaV saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:05 pm
My weekend consisted of workworkworkwork. Does Bossy’s husband hire himself out?
Backpacking Dad saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:21 pm
You forgot the part where you and I sat on a couch all afternoon watching a Rocky marathon on AMC. Because we totally did.
Gigi saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:24 pm
Dang, Bossy, your photos inspire me to not take pictures also. Your non-photography skills are AWESOME.
mrs. G. saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:25 pm
Could BOSSY’S husband come to my house? I would cover the cost of airfare.
Note to Nikon: give BOSSY that camera. The quality of her recent photos has inspired me to buy several for family members this Christmas and I have a big family. BOSSY has that kind of power.
chocolatechic saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:34 pm
I heart my Nikon D40x.
Maura saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:48 pm
Whoa Bossy! You’re funny……think I’ll read some more. Thank Linda over at 7msn Ranch. That’s how I found you…..
apathy lounge saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:48 pm
Sorta wish Thanksgiving was at our house because–hello! leftovers!!), but I don’t want to deal with the young nephew who only eats All White Foods, nor the father of the nephew who thinks his son is simply brilliant and that you’re the one with the problem. There’s always alcohol for dessert.
Little Miss Sunshine State saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:48 pm
How can Bossy’s Poverty Party afford an OMBVS when Bossy’s Smart Son is coming home for Thanksgiving Weekend and will require mass quantities of homecooked meals….and not just the beans in the cupboard?
apathy lounge saysNovember 24, 2008 at 12:48 pm
Also? I heart my Nikon D-60.
Rebecca saysNovember 24, 2008 at 1:10 pm
The Lost Weekend… next on Geraldo.
Jennifer saysNovember 24, 2008 at 1:16 pm
So where was the camera on Saturday? I bet money there is photographic evidence of the cause(s) of Bossy’s hangover on that camera!
Andrea's Sweet Life saysNovember 24, 2008 at 1:25 pm
Andrea’s husband took her out drinkin’ for the first time in like 8 years and so Andrea’s weekend skipped straight to Sunday evening, too.
Reeb saysNovember 24, 2008 at 1:51 pm
1. re: no leftovers: Apathy Lounge, I feel your pain. That’s why I make a much-smaller duplicate Thanksgiving meal (but with our favorite foods ONLY) on Friday or Saturday. Gotta have leftover gravy et al.
2. Bossy, I’m pissed at you. Protecting the Nikon from snow is no excuse for no photo record. There are such things as Plastic Bags to carry it in, and Overhangs to stand under while shooting beautiful shots of snow that evokes words like magical, enormous, thick, and Dr. Seuss. I won’t see snow til January if then.
3. Somebody, is there a 12 step program for addiction to Bossy’s photos? And a coping mechanism when denied same?
4. Boy do I sound surly today. sorry. I’ll go get me an OMBVS and lighten up.
cog saysNovember 24, 2008 at 1:54 pm
do Nikons melt if exposed to snow?
Domestic Goddess (in training) saysNovember 24, 2008 at 3:04 pm
A solid black box is the best way to describe an ideal Saturday night! Love it and jealous of it.
HeyJoe saysNovember 24, 2008 at 3:20 pm
Next time, risk the camera Doll.
Lee the MWOB Queen saysNovember 24, 2008 at 4:03 pm
Hope Bossy has her NikonD40 out during the Thanksgiving dinner she is hosting…because I’m sure something mindblowingly-creative will be brewing…
Cactus Petunia saysNovember 24, 2008 at 5:09 pm
Guess I’d better stay away from those Starbucks Vivanno thingies. Do they come with vodka?
Mr Farty saysNovember 24, 2008 at 5:32 pm
Hmmm…great camera, but not snow-proof? I’m underwhelmed.
Hope Bossy’s hangover is better now.
Stephanie saysNovember 24, 2008 at 7:17 pm
So, Bossy’s inviting us all over for turkey dinner, right???
Chesapeake Bay Woman saysNovember 24, 2008 at 9:21 pm
Dear Bossy and Bossy’s Friend Martha,
Thank Bossy and Bossy’s friend for making me laugh on a day when I did not think that was possible, where = the details are immaterial, just thank Bossy so much for making me laugh.
The Cheap Chick saysNovember 24, 2008 at 10:17 pm
Ooooooo, the Mystery Of The Missing Saturday Night! It sounds very Nancy Drew, except with booze and loose morals and good times and non-preachiness.
clickmom saysNovember 24, 2008 at 10:49 pm
My husband took the kids out so I could clean this weekend and I watched 27 Dresses instead. Then I cleaned maniacally for about half and hour and they never suspected a thing. he he he
Suebob saysNovember 25, 2008 at 12:14 am
Has your blog been broken? It just popped up in my feed reader with 201 unread posts in it…wow.
amberstar saysNovember 25, 2008 at 12:56 am
Oh Gah…you made me wish I had one of those unreal hangovers from the past. I didn’t think anything could do that.
Beth saysNovember 25, 2008 at 1:12 am
Wow, if I’d thought I could get away with that I would totally have my own blog. I hate taking photos of my own life (well, OK, and viewing photos of other people’s dogs), which always kept me from blogging. Probably that’s a blessing for the rest of the world, but now I have to get my writing energy out in comments, so maybe not.
Shelley saysNovember 25, 2008 at 7:51 am
Bossy, Apathy Lounge, please help: D40 or D60? I thought the D60 had image stabilization while the D40 didn’t. Is that right and does it matter?
Also, funny, clever post 🙂
Rhea saysNovember 25, 2008 at 3:05 pm
Your hangover was responsible for the shift in the time-space continuum between Friday night and Sunday?! Damn.
judy saysNovember 28, 2008 at 1:32 pm
You can report to Nikon one sale because of your review – picked up mine on sale today at OfficeMax – can’t wait to try it!
