We have been doing a lot of nothing in the last week. The tree fell over on New Year's and broke six of my grandma's ornaments, so that kind of spoilt the day for me. We went out to dinner with Sam and then came back here and drank far, far too much champagne and ate leftover wedding cake. The rest of the week I just kind of did nothing.
We've seen Sweeney Todd and The Golden Compass over the vacation. Both were very good.
I went to Mum and Bruce's Little Christmas party yesterday, had an awesome panic attack when someone started asked about the anniversary, horfed up my dinner, and then promptly drank too much wine. Mum gave us $20 for Epiphany. I have a set of earrings for her that I forgot to give to her yesterday.
I have the day off tomorrow courtesy of The Sears Appliance Fairy who will sprinkle magical appliances on my life tomorrow between 7:30 and 9:30. Because "after 4pm because we have to work" really means early in the morning, yo. But hey, at least we will have a new stove tomorrow and we can stop having to eat out ALL THE TIME. First thing Imma do tomorrow is bake damned bread. Steven wants to make tuna noodle casserole. We are lame because we've been fantasizing about what we'll cook first when we have a stove again. I am making a chicken this week-end :)
( We are not going to discuss my lush addiction behind the cut )
I also bought three filters for my camera: a star filter, a neutral density filter, and a diffusion filter because Ritz was having a buy two, get one free and my grandfather gave me an AWESOME tripod, so now I just need to, you know, do something with my pictures/website. It was make Samantha's wallet cry day at the Mall. We had dinner at Johnny Rocket's and then headed home, where Steven had to watch American Gladiators.
I'll have kitteh pictures tomorrow when I dump the camera. I love my huge memory card so very much. Kitteh couldn't decide whether she wanted OMG!LUVINS or to try and chase the squirrels through the glass. It is a hard life.
Funny Kitteh Story: My grandfather has one of those liquor cabinets that one side is a curio and it rotates to reveal the bar behind it. I had been playing with the cat and I went to show Steven the bar. I thought the cat had just sort of wandered off till I closed it back up and relocked it. Soon as I moved, she was over there, nosing around, pawing the sides, trying to figure out how I made the magics happen. When she couldn't do it because she has no opposable thumbs, the look she gave me would have frozen water in July. It was all ...Humans... Opposable thumbs... When I rule the world... Damn them... It was great.
There's some potentially really big news that I'll probably post about soon. We just kind of found out today, so I'm still kind of ruminating about it.
