This is the true story about what happens when a broke blogger spends her tax return to charter a bus and bring 50 unruly locals to a giant Swedish furniture store. There will be tears of joy, victorious fist pumps, and lots and lots of lifting with the knees (and not the back).
I don't know exactly why, but right around 1980, pubic fashions took a turn for the tailored and the big 70s bush that once roamed the earth began to diminish from the landscape. By the 2000s, it was all but extinct. Unfortunately for me, this change in fashion means that I have never not been expected to landscape the city square in the downtown area.
This is exactly what happens when a sports-deficient 35 year old finds herself at a professional soccer game amongst the drunks and megaphones in the superfan section. Terrifying, exhilarating, and undeniably Revolutionary.

The Oxford Casino may look like a giant Outback Steakhouse, but the security guard told me that I looked 19, so I decided to try my luck anyway.
As it turns out, putting Hannaford bags on your feet DOES NOT make last year's busted boots appropriate for this year's blizzard. This and other helpful lessons from the annals of the hopelessly snowed in.
