Happy happy Fri-DAY! Happy happy Fri-DAY!
That was meant to be sung (chanted?) in the 'Conga Line' tune, in case you weren't sure.
It's Friday! Whoo hoo! I don't know why I'm so excited, actually... it's not like Friday is different from any other day for me. I work from home, in my pajamas, for crying out loud. And, truth be told, I haven't had much work in lately (which is not good but means I haven't been running around like mad). It's grey and gloomy out, too... though it's not as chilly as it has been, so I guess that's something, eh?
Anyway, it's still Friday and that's pretty much universally a good thing... so I'm going with it!
Sundance and I have been for our walk-cum-slog... our park is under 'eco-renovation' at the moment so it's full of construction machines, men, and muck. We plowed our way through the mud and then my boy decided to give me a 'hug', so my jacket is now brown. Dark brown. In places. Lovely.
Tonight is my niece Elizabeth's 10th birthday party... at the skating rink... where I will don 8 wheels and roll around like a 7th grader, batting my eyes at the cute boys and deftly weaving my way in and out of the slower, less-coordinated kids (like Ryan). Cool. Elizabeth is getting a hamster for her birthday. I'm scared Ryan will want one now. My car already smells like a hamster habitat (yes, I finally pinpointed the smell my big, wet, hairy dog leaves behind), so I guess having one in the house wouldn't be much different. We'll see. She's never been a follower, that kid of mine. She'll probably want something like a chinchilla. Or a mongoose. They don't sell those in pet shops, do they?
Tomorrow I have a non-date with the Republican, during which he's going to give me a camera lesson in the hope that I can figure out what at least 1/3 of the settings on the confounding contraption do. After, I'm cooking him dinner. I felt it was important to have the lesson first, you know, in case he's not feeling well later. I'm still not sure what I'm cooking, though. The man does. not. eat. vegetables. Can you imagine? None. I've never met a vegetable I don't like. Anyway, I think we're going to see Duplicity later. It doesn't look fabulous but I haven't had a Clive Owen fix in a while (and I'd watch the man sit still for 2 hours). Yum.
So, that's my weekend. Hope yours is lovely! Oh, and happy happy Fri-DAY! xo
