(The point being the time, not the particular day.)

Normally I'd be home working on dinner, but tonight, I'll be having a beer with some friends.

At the first Music NOW event for this season downtown at the Harris. We missed all of them last year, that won't happen again!

Cross stitch. I need to finish my mother-in-law's birthday present.

I'll be thinking about today's poll on Gapers Block. I'll wonder why they asked about 7:45 pm? Why is that so significant? Is there something I'm missing right now at 7:45 pm?

I'll be wondering what conclusions Mucky Fingers comes to. Oh, and catching up on Breaking Bad.

Getting ready for my makeup 8pm tennis lesson at McFetridge.

Tonight at 745pm, I'll be telling the world exactly what I'm doing at 7:45pm. Timely news, don'tcha know.

Why, what else is there to do?

I was out of the country. What did I miss?

Brain / October 18, 2011 3:05 PM

The same thing I do every night at 7:45pm, Gapers Block. Try to take over the world!

Calling 911 because some fool thought no one was home and tried to break into Chez Huffencooper to steal our CD collection and our cats.

Presumably seeing a sneek preview of "Boss", that new Kelsey Grammer cable show. Hubby's idea....
