Pool Party!

Tonight, we went to what is going to be our future home in August for a pool party being put on by Verizon to hype their FIOS system. They had hot dogs, potato salad, chips, drinks, candy and watermelon. There were door prizes like a TV we were ineligible to win cause HHH works there, and other prizes such as recycling bags, hats and t-shirts. It was fun. I got to meet some of our soon to be neighbors, the kids got to swim, and I didn't have to cook for dinner!
Too bad it was a dry party because I would have L-O-V-E-D to be sipping another screwdriver. The temps had dropped since the rain that morning and it was beautiful.
So it was a really cool evening. Apparently Verizon will go out and court the people in the more affluent neighborhoods, because they sure as hell don't do BBQs here in the barrio!

Discrimination much??

Don't question... just enjoy!

The pool looks lovely, btw.

Nice new digs! Especially since August just gets hellishly hot there, doesn't it?

If you owned a business, wouldn't you go where you're most likely to sign more people up as paying clients? It'd certainly be NICE to have free bbq's every where, but who can afford that, especially now?
