Mimsey's Top Five Weekend Suggestions...

Hello Gentle Readers,

I was having dinner with the Mimsus and realized, I had no plans for today's blog post. Then it hit me: It's Friday! Why not make some suggestions for your weekend plans:

So naturally I told the Mimsus "I'm off to write my Top 11 Weekend Suggestions"

"11?" She replied, arching one Dutch eyebrow. "I'd like to see you at some point. How about five?"

Now, I'll stop right here and say, the key to any good marriage is compromise: 

Mimsey's Top Five Weekend Suggestions
Or, how I got out of doing the dishes. 

1) Go see a movie!
 A movie so good, you didn't even have to see it
to know it was the Best Picture!

There's tons of great flicks out there! The Mimsus and I just went to see the Lego Movie and will probably go see Frozen this weekend. So, why not get a group of friends together and see which starlett's name will be butchered next year by John Travolta!

Might be time to let that joke go. 

2) Catch up on your reading!

I've got a backlog of books that would shame the most ardent bibliophile hoarder. I think the real lesson is, why not take this weekend to snuggle up to a nice book.

3)  Visit! 

Maybe this is a Southern thing, but my extended family is big on staying in touch. I also have quite a few awesome friends. This weekend, I'm hanging with Swarley! It's going to be legend---
Yes, I have done this joke before. Deal with it!

4) Do something for someone else!
As Steve is quick to remind me, charity begins at home. 
And picking up the milk begins at the Piggly Wiggly. 

I don't know what it's like where you are, Gentle Reader, but around these parts it's cold. Why not take a minute this weekend and check on your neighbors. See if they need something. I know it's hard to get out of the house. But, at the least, call that special someone in your life who never forgets your birthday, and talks about The Google

And will probably get my Eartha Kitty joke. 

5) Meet new people!
He's a Virgo. 

Maybe it's been a while. Maybe you're recently single. Maybe you're tired of the same old faces. Maybe you just can't stand to talk to people about The Google! Well, then it's time to go out there and MEET THE PEOPLE! Stand up and say "NO! I AM NOT GOING TO BINGE WATCH House of Car---"
It's ok, I know you had it queued up. 
I'm not judging. 

Well, whatever you do this weekend, do it well. Go big or go home, that's The Mimsey motto. The Mimsus' motto is: Why are you still typing? 

Jay Mims writes books, humorous blogs, and strongly worded letters to the editor. Jay and The Mimsus live with a passive-aggressive Dalek named Steve, and have semi-adopted their neighbor's cat named Eartha Kitty. There's another cat named Meowthazar, but he's not as interesting. Also a Lizard. Jay calls him Bob. Jay writes books and is far funnier on Facebook then in real life. He is terrible at Twitter.
