Weekend Wrap Up

Brigid had a rough day yesterday so I’m a day late on my Weekend Wrap Up.

Lots of big news to report.

Most terrifically…. they caught the crazy ass murder neo-Nazi guy on Saturday afternoon in Corvallis, a town about 80 miles south of Portland. Yay!!! I can sleep soundly at night knowing that psycho is behind bars. He is being charged with aggravated murder and other burglary offenses.

If you want to watch his arrest, it was caught on security cameras at the hotel (video courtesy of kgw.com) he was trying to check into. Thank God he didn’t hurt the hotel employees when they turned him away.

Friday night, I got engaged! To who? Uh, to Derwood, duh. He tried to be cute and put it in the bread basket at the little Italian restaurant where we had dinner. Sadly I’m an old bride-to-be and didn’t have my readers on so I noticed something in the bread basket but didn’t know if it was just butter packets (oooo bad word “packets”). I only wanted olive oil so I ignored the box that I couldn’t really see very well. Inside it was this beee-YOO-ti-ful ring:

1940s ring given to Maggie by Derwood for engagement purposes.

We have no game plan as of yet but we’re doin’ this thing!

Maggie’s Sports Watch

I did watch some sports on Sunday.

It seems, and now I guess is confirmed after last night’s Packer/Seahawks game, that the NFL replacement refs are a catastrophe.

There was this little blip during the Cowboy/Bucs game on Sunday. Apparently the ref threw his hat on the field and the receiver slipped on it BUT the Cowboys still won so that is good and confirms that I know what the hell I’m talking about. The Bucs uniforms are hideous.

Miami played the Jets. It’s a long standing rivalry and I’m quite bitter that the Dolphins lost by a field goal in overtime. Also, apparently the Jets play a Wildcat offense which keeps QB Mark Sanchez on the field, as well as Tim Tebow, who I thought was a QB but he also runs the ball. I don’t know what that’s all about but I definitely don’t think Tebow is as hot as some people seem to think he is. As a matter of fact, I don’t think he’s cute at all.

In other NFL news:

The Giants won beating Carolina which just goes to show that made up teams are losers.

Derwood is happy that the Arizona Cardinals won beating Philly. I don’t like the whole idea of the Cardinals not being in St. Louis but Derwood is my fiancΓ© and I need to be supportive and Michael Vick is in Philly so that team can suck it.

HAHAHAHA the Ravens beat the New England Patriots. Ah HAH…. I mock you and everything you stand for Tom Brady!

Lastly, Seattle eked out a victory over Green Bay in Monday Night Football but not really. Not really at all.

In other sports news, Derwood, Lisa and I had our first threesome. We rocked it. I wasn’t as good as I usually am but Derwood and Lisa made up for it. Next week we’re going to add some holes and play 18.

This was taken by an amateur photographer so it looks like I’m not tall and thin.

    Maggie,
    Is it just me, or you’re excited about being engaged? I don’t know… I might not be reading you well…

    Engagement purposes are the best kind of purposes. I hope you drank, danced and golfed all at the same time and enjoyed the crap out of it!

  3. aallegoric says:

    I hope Brigid will be alright again soon.
    And congrats again πŸ˜‰
    xx

  4. I’m loving the golf picture. You’re looking very pro, VERY pro.
    Big day for our guy Mitt!. His address at the UN was outstanding – he got a standing ovation. Then he met with Brian Williams at NBC and had an amazing Q&A on the topic of Education. Gosh, he knows it well and has incredible ideas on how to improve it. I think the audience was bowled over by his ideas. Very impressive.

    • Also… sorry Brigid had a rough day. Hope she’s doing better. : )

      • Maggie O'C says:

        she is better today, fingers crossed. I will watch the FoxNews tonight to get some Romney coverage. Uh oh, Le Clown just fainted.

        • unfetteredbs says:

          WAIT– HOLD the PHONE.. did you just admit to watching Fox News? Haaa
          I don’t think I have ever met someone who, other than me, would admit that.
          We listen to Imus every morning.. how about you?
          I think you need to practice saying Fiance more…
          and for the record.. the ending kick of the Patriots game WAS NOT a Field Goal –fecking refs. but the Boys won so it is all good

          • Maggie O'C says:

            Yes, yes I do. I watch FoxNews to the exclusion of almost all other news except if Mike Huckabee is on b/c he makes me crazy. Imus EVERY morning.

            “Has anyone seen my fee AHN Say?!”

            I didn’t see the Pats game but I loathe them so however they lose is good with me πŸ™‚

          • unfetteredbs says:

            laughing.. say it sister say it…
            and ahh on the Imus.. yea baby

    • Margarita says:

      I was looking for Mr. Romney’s speech at the U.N. Apparently, he didn’t speak there. He spoke at the Clinton Global Initiative and at the NBC Education Forum. Either way, definitely part of the U.N. traffic gridlock that happens this time of year!

  5. Lily says:

    Lol at my mom’s comment. I wonder if she likes Mitt Romney?
    My husband was so happy about the Seattle game. Crazy! I actually don’t like Green Bay, being from Chicago and all. So woo hoo!
    Congrats on getting engaged! So exciting! The ring is gorgeous!

  6. superflygoffer says:

    Who’s that super fly goffer on the left?

  7. ha ha on the pic – you are so cute

    and congrats again–though I think I already congratulated you when you responded to another commenter that you were engaged in a previous blog

  8. Wishing you many happy years Maggie πŸ™‚

  9. Brigitte says:

    Maggie, hope sweet Brigid will be better soon and I’ll await further news about the upcoming nuptials. Glad they caught the psycho guy — you must be breathing easier! And love the pic btw. You do look quite tall and thin despite the amateur photography. xxoo

    • Maggie O'C says:

      Hi Brig, I hope my Brig is better soon, too. She stayed at school all day so that is a good day! I will keep you posted on my wedding activities, no clue as to what they will be. Saturday my Facebook page was full of parents and kids posting the news and saying how they could breathe easier, sleep easier, “go back in the basement”. I can let my dog out without worrying that guy is gonna get in the house. Blah.
      I feel tall and thin, I don’t know what’s wrong with that photo πŸ™‚ xo

  10. artyelf says:

    They’re both wonderful photos, and put a great smile on my face πŸ™‚
    ‘for engagement purposes’ ??!! – you crack me up!
    ♑❀♑ Congratulations to the both of you, once again ♑❀♑
    And lots of love to your precious Brigid β™‘

    • Maggie O'C says:

      Thank you. Brig is having a good day today and made it through school and is at dance. My sister used the “baby steps” line on me today. πŸ™‚

      I’m glad I made you smile. xoxo

      Heart show off!

  11. Okay, HOW is it that “I GOT ENGAGED” wasn’t the first thing in this post???? Congratulations!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am so happy for you!! And I love that ring!

    Meanwhile, those substitute refs are hilariously bad. But as long as they ruled in favor of the Ravens, I’m pleased. Bad call last night with the Packers, though. Idiots.

    Congratulations again!!!

    • Maggie O'C says:

      Well I had already posted the ring on Friday night and Clown has been mocking me πŸ™‚ Thanks! Very happy, very very happy. And I’m with you on the Pats/Ravens. Whatever lends itself to a Pats loss, I’m good with it.

  12. I’m very glad the police caught the murder suspect. Things are going quite well out there by you now! Put that ax away!

    • Maggie O'C says:

      I never posted a photo of my ax. It’s on the back deck now and I’m thrilled that guy is locked up. He was charged yesterday with many counts of aggravated murder, which in Oregon, can get you a needle. I don’t know if I want this guy to live out his miserable life in prison or take early retirement.

  13. Margarita says:

    I thought the ring was vintage…you’re one very, very lucky lady, Maggie, I understand that the diamonds on your ring stand for: I Love You For Ever! And you look tall and thin to me! xoxoM

  14. acflory says:

    Oh My God! Good things really do come in waves. I’m an soooooo glad your psycho was caught and I’m thrilled that you and your fiance are now formally engaged. Congratulations. Simply wonderful news. πŸ™‚
