This weekend I went to a warehouse sale for Augsburg Fortress, in lieu of my wife, who didn’t want to stand in line for 3 hours in the early morning because of her 9-month excuse.
So, why did I go there? I go there because they have Friar Tuck shirts for $1 a piece. I bought 59 of them. I can’t really go into any more detail why. I encourage you to be creative and leave your speculations in the comments below.
Anyway, Augsburg Fortress is the most awesome name for a company of all time. Seriously, if I ever start a company, it needs to have the word “fortress” in its name.
I found an interesting website this weekend, What Should I Read Next? You list books you like, and it will recommed more for you. I’m going to use it for audio books, and I’ve already gotten The Picture of Dorian Gray, which is a book I’ve always wanted to read, but never got around to it.
Here’s what I else I did this weekend:
Heh, just kidding. What’s wrong with these people?
I plan on paying another visit to Wholly Joe’s this weekend, a restaurant that may contain the best hot dogs I’ve ever eaten. You can get a whole pickle spear on them! What a great idea! Plus they have both Pepsi and Coke fountains, a work of genius that until now I believed would be relegated solely to Speedway for all eternity.
We bought a new bed frame this weekend, for reasons that I’d rather not go into. I bought it new at a local store, but all they had left was a floor model. I had to help the sales rep take the thing apart with a junky screwdriver that they had. Then I had to cart the thing home, disassemble the old one and put together the new one. What a hassle! I think there’s plenty of room for innovation in bedding. Someone needs to get to work on that.
