This past weekend was the sort-of-annual Rott Fest™, where members of the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler blog get together to catch up and have fun. This year was no different. As we do every time at least two Rotties get together, we went to a gun range to expend a healthy amount of ammunition.
Actually this happens whether or not Rotties get together.
Anyway, esteemed K.o.R. Crunchie brought his Israeli friend Uzi for us to meet. I had met her before in Florida, but I needed a proper introduction in order to enjoy her charm. Boy howdy, was she fun. She ate 9mm with all the gusto of a coloratura soprano at a Thanksgiving feast. I almost needed a cigarette after that. Almost.
After the range, we retired to the hosts’ compound to enjoy a BBQ repast. Ok, we enjoyed an alcohol repast supplemented by BBQ. I finally got to meet long time FIF LC Staci so that was definitely a plus for me. She and I share an uncommon bond, especially when it comes to Urban Decay™. And jewelry, even home jewelry. Talking about non-weaponry items caused the gents’ eyes to glaze over, but it was still nice to talk about other things besides 9mm versus .45. She and I see eye-to-eye on the NEED of having a chandelier somewhere, anywhere in the house, but that is something Hubby will just not allow. Why? Because the room I want to put a chandelier in is the bedroom, and he is adamant on having a ceiling fan. But I may have found an acceptable compromise.
Yep, a floor lamp. I saw it on an HGTV show and now it is under my skin. Where I would put it, I have no idea. How I would buy it, no clue either. I foresee a project in my future.
So yes, we had a great time visiting old friends and making new ones, and once again I was foiled in my attempts to glamorize my bedroom. I will have to stick to the cursed ceiling fan. It’s a small price to pay for harmony 🙂

The expenditure of ammunition is ALWAYS a sign of a good weekend. As long as its either paper or reactive targets. “Tangoes” and “goblins” fall into the “reactive” target category, of course.

But of course 😉

Well…that thing costs $1200 EACH from Restoration Hardware. How do I know this? Because my the male half of our couple pals hard heart failure after his wife bought TWO for the dining room. And Scott lost points for pointing out the “chandelier” didn’t match.
Regarding UD Perversion….it blows away Better Than Sex by Too Faced. I’m hooked! 😉

$1200?? I’ll pass….
Oh, and before y’all say anything about Perversion and Better Than Sex, we are talking about names of MASCARA, people.

*almost had heart failure.
Personally, I’d go for a giant candelabra in the Loo.

I do have recessed lighting over the tub….Hm….

Never tried an Uzi. Not even sober. I learned on the FN, and have felt disloyal with anything else ever since. Target ranges only, of course.

You should try it at least once, just to say you did 🙂

“Because the room I want to put a chandelier in is the bedroom, and he is adamant on having a ceiling fan.” I’m with the Colonel on this one, Ms Aggie. If you are going to have a dust collector on the ceiling, it should at least be practical. And, look at the bright side: he wants a ceiling fan, not mirrors on the bedroom ceiling.

Men…. *rolls eyes*
June 18th, 2014 at 1:53 PM
Thank you! I’m here ’til Thursday. Try the veal.

Amatures. Put mirrors on the ceiling fan blades.

Some of us recognise the inherent superiority of the letters HK on weapons.
June 18th, 2014 at 5:53 PM
Indeed we do 😉

1) I always wondered at the attraction of the 9mm bullet hose until I took a sub gun course and got to use an H&K MP5. I tell myself I can’t have one because the ammo cost would break me.
2) Don’t underestimate mirrors on the ceiling.

I hope Hubby doesn’t read this 😉

Wow, from Uzis to chandeliers, you are a true Renaissance woman, Aggie. 😀
June 19th, 2014 at 8:51 AM
I sure am!! 😀
June 19th, 2014 at 8:12 PM
Oooh, ooh!!!! UZI CHANDELIERS!!!!!!
June 19th, 2014 at 11:02 PM
That would certainly light up the night, but it might make it difficult to get to sleep, what with all the noise … unless you put suppressors on the Uzis. Hmmm … there would be some major design/architectural problems if the Uzis were functional, don’t you think?

I was originally thinking “wall hangars”, but now that you mention it, a couple of solenoid trigger activators and you’ve now got a 360-degree field of zombie-mowing goodness. Or you could use it to gank some goblins. If you use the chromed-out Uzi’s, that gives you the “mirrors on the ceiling” effect, as well. I see no downsides to this plan!
June 20th, 2014 at 9:56 AM
Uzi chandeliers?? Even I have a limit 🙂
June 24th, 2014 at 9:45 PM
There are waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too many beach balls floating up in the air to even begin to try and figure out which one to spike first, so I’ll just walk away calmly and quietly… This IS a “Family Friendly Blog”, after all. 😉
June 25th, 2014 at 8:59 AM
Yeah, keep saying that 😛
