Doesn’t look like I’ll get anything done this weekend


Just my fancy luck… end of mid-tri which means, for me, grading thirty-six 20-page stories and bibliographies AND one of the most jam-packed Saturdays I’m ever anticipating. What to do? Knowing me, probably none of the above.

10:00 – Liberty Lands Work day


Nothin’ like a Nor’easter to make you think about gardening! But the weather will warm up by the end of the week — just in time for our workday on Saturday. We’ll be weeding and spreading woodchips in the areas outside the community garden, by the bakery wall, and in the garden paths. The community gardeners got a lot done at the March workday. . . let’s get more done Saturday! There will be drinks and donuts…please bring a friend or neighbor to pitch in!

Noon – Day 1 of the Philadelphia Book Festival

2:00 & 3:00 – Philadelphia WordPress and Bloggers Meetup at the Ten Spot

5:30 – OMG MF Patti Smith giving a free concert at the Free Library

8:00 – Orianna Hill Beef & Beer Benefit

LOCATION: The Ukranian Club @ 847 N. Franklin Street (between 7th & 8th Streets).

Don’t miss the second annual Friends of Orianna Hill Park Beef & Beer benefit fundraiser THIS Saturday, April 21, 2007 from 8-12pm at The Ukranian Club @ 847 N. Franklin Street (between 7th & 8th Streets).

There will be a live performance by the Northern Liberties Dance Band, as well as tunes by D.J. Captain Mike.

What the hell…I might just wake up Saturday, put on goggles, take a deep breath, and do it all. Anyone willing to dive with me into the fray?
