Dinner and a Movie
So, now we have a day to be out and about as we wish.... so we decided to go to a movie. We haven't been to one in a while. We are even going to be brave and go to the Movies 8 Theatres... we had probs the last time we were there (no sound is a bit of a drag, i would say). I think we will end up eating lunch at Star of India (in Kenmore on Deleware Ave) and then see Hitchhikers Guide to The Galaxy... my best friend, Mark, said, "it's a suck fest" but i won't get bored listening to Stephen Fry's voice. He's got a great soothing British voice... i loved listening to his autobiography, Moab is my Washpot, on tape that a friend got for me...

Sorry you feel shitty today, (e:Jason). I understand those kinda days. As we say here in this household, you have "used up all your excess nice" today, and you're just plumb out. We only have so much nice in us each day, i reckon, and today, your well isn't as full as it could be. Don't fret, one day, it will be overflowing and you will just be nicing all over the place. :O)

Think Like e:Paul?
You see, what i want to do is comment on someone's journal. I posted a comment to (e:Jason), he commented and i want to comment again, but, well, when i click the show/hide/add comment link, all it does is open it or close it. At first, i tried to click on it once. and all it did was open the comments. OK, i thought to myself, i need to click on that side of the link. Nope. Then, in my "think like (e:Paul)" frame of mind, i clicked it 3 times, 'cause it's the third thing there. Nope.. it opened, closed and opened again...

Taste Good on No Tables
No luck on the tables. The truck won't start and we were advised not to stay home waiting.
We did, however, have very good chinese take out. Taste Good on the corner of Hertel and Deleware.. They have excellent mock chicken and mock beef dishes for those of us that are vegetarians. Seems, however, that not all the mock dishes are on the menu, so we went in person to look at the handwritten board. Then, i copied it all out on the back of the take out menu so we can call an order in next time. I highly recommend them!

I am very happy to hear that Canada appears ready to finally pass same sex marriage in the House of Commons. I remember the first bit of news regarding Canada heading down that path and i was proud to be Canadian.
Often, i think of how difficult life would have been had i fallen in love with another woman from the US. We wouldn't have had it so easy (not that the immigration process is easy, per say) as we did with the K-1 fiance visa i was able to get because Walt is a boy and i am a girl. I mean, what the hell difference does it make?
I am happy that i have choices. That i was able to decide to marry Walt. That i was able to come and live with him in the US. I only wish all others would have the same choices i have.

Waiting On Tables
They were (are, i guess since they are not here yet) floor models of a discontinued line. I'm looking forward to seeing them again. I am sure one of us will post a pic of them... round tables of a nice dark wood, with a glass top that has a rounded etched diamond pattern in it.
I had to call yesterday to ask them why, after a week, we hadn't heard from them regrading setting up a delivery date (since they were there, didn't need to be ordered or anything). I didn't get much of an answer, but i was transfered to the delivery department and spoke to some guy named Jim who asked if tomorrow (today) would be ok.
I bet they will show at 11.01, since they are supposed to show up between 10 and 11. Walt has more confidence; he said 10.40.

What the hell is going on? We moved here so i could get away from the heat of the south. I know in Eastern Tennessee it wasn't that hot, but too hot for my thick Canadian blood. And we move here and the weather follows me? My first summer in Knoxville was a record breaker, too..

Clumsy Old Tart
I was also one of those kids that gets ear infections like crazy. I still get them a lot, more than most adults, and now that i have lived in Eastern Tennessee for a small chunk of my life, i have seasonal allergies, which seem to effect me as though i have a sore throat and an ear infection.
The result of both of the above leads me to be a rather clumsy person. Some days, i think i should be in a slapstick comedy routine.
Because of the lazy eye, my brain wired itself to see things in an unusual way. Almost as though my 2 eyes see independentaly and i often have to close one eye to read. I have pretty bad perspective problems, which have made me feel afraid to get a drivers license.... at the ripe old age of 36, i have never learned to drive. I believe i will someday and i promise y'all i will warn you before i do so you can pay more attention when you are out.
The ear infections have left my balance slightly off kilter, and when i was involved in gymnastics when i was a wee little tyke, i often over compensated.
Both issues converged on me yesterday afternoon. (e:uncutsaniflush) and i were at a Sprawl-Mart buying a dehumidifier for our wet basement and looking at fans. He took one off the shelf and i decided to help him out and put it back. The boxes were just over my head and there wasn't enough room for the box. But with my perspective issues, i couldn't quite judge that lack of space. (e:uncutsaniflush) was able to grab the box so it didn't do too much damage, but the box did bounce off my head hard enough to smash my sunglasses and have them fly off the top of my head. I'm still not sure if they helped or gave me a headache worse than i would have had with simply the box. I think the worst was me cringing knowing what was about to come.... i clenched my teeth and they were throbbing a bit last night.
Soooooo... should i sue?
