MeanEgirl's Day Off

MEg and tDarkness forced me to go to the Mall of America today.

I'm sort of embarrassed to admit it, since those of us who leave near the MoA never go there. What's the point? There are 4 malls closer to me than the MoA, and I don't have to walk 10 miles if I need to get to a store across the mall. Plus, I hate shopping. And people.

Anyway, how could I turn down a chance to hang out with someone my own size? I should point out that, if you stacked me on MEg's shoulders, we would only come up to tDarkness's elbow. He is very tall.

The trip ended up being fabulous, because I was able to find a fuzzy UMD hockey helmet I can wear to the Final Five. Superb. The Darkness has a hat fetish, so he found 2 hats, and MEg found some excellent tailgating supplies. MEg is afraid of rides that might be fun, so we didn't go on any rides. We mostly spent our time looking for some banana flavored ice cream and a cowbell.









Here we are looking like pimp mamas at the greatest of all stores, Dollar Tree.










Here we are masquerading as Bucky and Goldy fans.











Now we are pretending to be CC and DU fans, except we're not killing each other. It's fitting, since Tech bounced CC this year, and we knocked Denver out last year!










It felt like I was wearing a dead Gopher on my head. ::Shudder::











Here we're testing out some gear in case they need extra players during the Final Five.


There's evidently going to be a meet and stalk greet tomorrow at the Plymouth Old Chicago. It was organized by the fabulous Brenthoven and once again, MEg is forcing me to attend. It starts at 8.

*Edit* Evidently, the joke's on us!

Why wasn't I invited to either of these things? This is bull!

You WERE invited to the meet and stalk, it was on USCHO AND you posted in the thread.

And were you planning on coming to the MoA from your basement location?

Dirty said...

1. Shut up
B. Don't point out my incompetence.
π. Yes, as a matter of fact I was. You've ruined the surprise now though. Thanks alot!

Is that a Seawolves shirt I see?

Boosh said...

If I lived in Minneapolis and had nothing better to do, I would hang out with you Dirty

MeanEgirl said...

Woo! Go Seawolves! And yes.. all my Tech shirts are dirty. So I'll wear my second favorite team. :)

Boosh said...

How come Dirty posts on your blog but not mine?

Runninwiththedogs said...

I'M BETTER.

Those Gopher hats are the UGLIEST things ever! Did all of your hair fall out from your body rejecting the Gopher wear? What about MEg's fingers? Certainly they started on fire after holding the WI banner.

Funny pictures! Looks like you had a great time. Cracks me up that Boosh switched it all up over on his blog. You guys have to get him back now.

Might I suggest a Trip to Victoria's Secret on your next trip to the Mall to boost website visits...

HockeyMom isn't helping you two put rash cream on this weekend from all that stuff you were wearing......I hope you used protection.

HM, you should have come. You could have stocked up on your granny panties at the Dollar Tree.

DG and Dirty, dream on...

On second thought, don't even dream. :^D
