What Was Saturday

:: These things happened:

  • Woke up, fell out of bed, dragged a comb across my head;
  • Called Amelia about picking up music charts and CDs for upcoming April performances;
  • Ate bowl of Cheerios with blueberries and strawberries and Bran Buds in skim milk with a dash of Splenda;
  • Read the paper;
  • Crawled back into bed for 15 minutes;
  • Renewed That Dog CD, on loan from EPL;
  • Showered, dressed, left house;
  • Drove to AMA to buy five Platinum Plus movie passes, was immediately smitten with Tammy, the woman helping me, who was tall and beautiful and friendly and helpful and had deep brown eyes and a great smile;
  • Drove to Amelia’s to pick up music;
  • While leaving Amelia’s, was forced to stop in the middle of a street, waiting for the car in front of me to move; honking horn didn’t help; honking a second time resulted in her slowly moving so I could leave Amelia’s neighbourhood; note to self – there are still oblivious, moronic, shyte-for-brains people allowed to drive in this country, so watch out for them when you are on the road;
  • Bought shoelaces at The Shoe Company, almost exciting as buying pants, but not quite;
  • Had tazo chai latte at Indigo’s while reading Vanity Fair;
  • Bought two copies of the SI Bathing Suit issue and a discount card before leaving Indigo’s;
  • Drove home, and spent the afternoon working on project to clean and purge my kitchen; finished weeding and cleaning one bookshelf;
  • Interrupted project a couple times to view short segments of stuff I had recorded years ago on video; this included a hilarious segment from Letterman’s last show on NBC with Tom Hanks, describing the time he tried to stuff Slappy White‘s golf clubs in the trunk of White’s car; the opening theme to Murder One, and the Larry Sanders episode with Gene Siskel, Warren Zevon and John Ritter;
  • Drove to Sobey’s for groceries;
  • Upon returning home, fired up the natural gas bbq and cooked a teriyaki-flavoured chicken breast; boiled a red potato and steamed some broccoli; smothered the broccoli and potatoes in no-fat sour cream, ate dinner with an Orange Crush on ice while watching Battlestar Galactica;
  • Drove to Ceili’s, a pub and diner downtown, to join Debbie and Steve and friends in a get-together before they leave for a three-month trip to South America; enjoyed meeting some new people, including two of her amazing friends, Marni and Sherry – all four of us are from Windsor Park in St Boniface, part of Winnipeg, and we went to the same high school, albeir some 20 years apart; the incredible Lauren was there with Glen at another table, she saw me, came over and after a wonderful hug, we compared notes and visited for 20 minutes;
  • Nachos arrived, but with jalapenos, which I asked not to be included, so a new batch was made, and Debbie and Marni and Sherry and Sona and I chowed down;
  • Said my goodbyes, and drove home, and wrote this;

Life is sweet, it was a good day, and my friends are feckin’ amazing people.

    Well, I’ve bought the SI Swimsuit issue now every year since 1974. Somewhere along the line I decided to buy two copies, then went back to one, and in 2003, went back to buying two. Why? Probably thinking they’ll be collectors items to someone, somewhere in the future. Maybe I can score big on eBay! 😉

    How wonderful it is! Today, I had seen the film – “The Incredibles” this afternoon, my father also had seen this film in this evening. This cartoon movie is powered by Disney-Pixar. In this film, I love the people’s sensation, scene, bugbears. The scene is so sublime. With the great imagination.
