Hey, Kids. This will be quick because it's late and I'm tired. I want to thank all of you for your wonderful suggestions as to how to spend my day off. Especially Killer's "make your own cheap porn at home" ideas. Although it was creative and resourceful, I must have misplaced my whips and chains, so it just wasn't going to work for me today.
I did have a nice day, but it was still ruled by my stupid, dumb, annoying cold. It made me spacey and tired all day. At one point, I was driving in my car with Mr. Dateman and ran a red light. It wasn't even yellow, or pink or anything other than bright red. Oops. Luckily, Mr. Dateman lived to tell about it and possibly write some kind of cautionary tale about the dangers of riding in a car with me.
Later in the afternoon, I was going to run, but I was too wiped out. I napped until 4:30 and then finally ran. I knew I wouldn't be able to handle going out and drinking, but since it was my last night before the girls got back from camp, I wanted to at least do something.
I stopped by my friend K. and J,'s place to see if they wanted to go out to eat, but they were already grilling with my friend T. Because they are so awesome, they invited me to dinner and it was so much better than eating in a restaurant. T. split her steak with me and there was literally a trough of corn on the cob, and salad and potatoes and veggies and K. even made me a white wine spritzer. It was perfect for my cold because the lemon and lime were full of vitamin C. We had great dinner time conversation about this movie J. went to see at the Bijou about guys who have sex with animals. We joked about what a great first date movie that would be...Or not.
I went home around ten and watched "The Illusionist", it was a tad slow for someone who might have had a little bit to drink and was ready to fall into a food coma, but I made it all the way to the end and now I must sleep.
