Hiya... :D

My poor little Geo is wracked with a cough... he's been developing all the classic cold symptoms but it took off with the "scratchy ouch" throat last night at midnight... awake and very very unhappy. :( Got the vaporizer going full tilt and z used some vics vapo rub to get the air moving. He's up with Ed now, doing the Sunday morning Nintendo thing and seems a wee bit improved ... weak tea helped...

Scroll scroll... back 210 and I gotta stop... :)

hernia talk: I'm feeling loads better... I can cough... it hurts a wee "wincing" bit but I can still cough so BIG PLUS. I've managed some of the more TMI'ish things as well... The tylonal 2's were pushed back... only had two yesterday and one of those was at bedtime. So far today... it's all good, just a thing. Now's the time to load up on being careful. I am committed to not screwing this up by doing something to hurt it.

We watched Lost In Translation last night... over all it was an "ok" movie with some laughs and warmth... although z was less enthused... However, on a special level... in a place I reserve for emotional theater that really snaps a low note in my soul... the movie scored huge points. It was like a six act play... the main character being heart ache... and it wandered in and out of intensity, with each act redefining the emotional context of the story. (deep moment here... sorry). I wanted to say "thank you" to the movie for ending the way it did...

and yes, I need to watch something that includes explosions, murder and tasteless exploitation soon... although American Splendor is still out there... (rented it last week but didn't watch it)

~ black ftls
~ pj pants... for days now...
~ gray t and a black hoodie

~ to send to iwillalwaysloveyouandalwayscare vibes to indianasweetie... er... with all the "appropriate" style caviets of course, so don't freak out... but really... sugar... my hopes are near by.
~ to send some smiles to a contented breekola... It's always precious to see good vibes work their way into friends lives...

~ that all is well with mrs TT (that Treasure Tonya) or tonya

~ and some quiet hopeful vibes to alfabettezoupe

I managed a trip out-of-doors yesterday. I went to Starbucks to return a bodum coffee maker that I got for a b-day gifty... and see what could be done about the "corse ground" lb of coffee that came with it... They gave me a full refund, a new lb of coffee, ground for our regular coffee maker and a free coffee. :D I hit Future Shop to return a DVD the kids got me... (Snatch) because it was the regular version and I want to get the Superbit version but I have to order it... I felt a bit like a heel for returning gifts but ... I got over that.

Oh, and I got z a headset so she can look a wee bit more like her There avitar.

* sorry... talking in the third person is punishable by a jail-term in some countries...


Ug... home from TKD and grocery shopping... foul mood and foul sensation... The only real truth about recovering from anything is; don't let your body trick you into thinking you're better... it's just a ploy to get you to overextend yourself and land that body back in bed.
~ where I slept like a rock till about 15 minutes ago.

Now? I wake up to chicken in the oven and a need to do some veggies and some... rice? yeah, I think more rice... :D

It's Birthday Time

I'm behind but must indeed deal with that...

Happy Birthday Deb... That's nordicgrrl... the singing sensation from a Bar near you!! Thank you for years of wonderful friendship Deb and I hope very much that you, and your little family, enjoy a happy year ahead with milestones made of sweet memories and good fortune. :D Very quick "story about Deb" moment here; The story of the romance than lead to her marriage brought tears to my eyes and remains a hallmark memory for me... a love story worthy of sharing.

and Happy Birthday Christie . er... um that's txdevil to y'all..."Round Rock"??? Where's Round Rock? and is there a square in the middle of town? Lil'Sugar, have a wonderful year ahead.... I hope you had a grand time celebrating this year and that the year before you is one I get to share in... May you never lack for the warm skin of a lover to bury you face in... hahaha... (couldn't resist that... )

Happy Birthday Ladies... you are both treasured friends and I wish you all the best.
