Breaking the Law. Breaking the Law

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.

The end.

That meal sounds like it was really good. I liked "The Illusionist". I'm an Ed Norton fan. I think it was better than "The Prestige" which was another magic-type movie that came out at the same time.

I hope your cold is cutting you some slack today! Have a good weekend!

Churlita,
If good times and good food with good friends don't make your cold subside, nothing will. That's what improves your imunity and lengthens your life.

Sounds like you managed to make a decent day of it regardless of the cold. Well done.

The Illusionist was a little disappointing. Did you see The Prestige? If not, don't let one movie about 19th century magicians turn you off to all of them. It's good. I mean, like, REALLY good. Seriously.

Yummylicious.. we had steak too.. I was surprised I was able to eat that after having two teeth yanked out of my friggin skull...So What are your plans once the girls return? Hopefully your cold will go away soon...get well...

I SO didn't like the Illusionist. It was too slow.

RFB taught me this. If you inadvertantly go through a stale yellow or actually red light, immediately start whistling. It make you look non-chalant.

I've never gotten a ticket following this advice.

Now, before someone accuses me of hypocrisy, given my most recent post, late me state that this only applies if your error is inadvertant.

Obviously, if you go through one advertantly (is that a word?), you're an asshat who deserves a ticket and a scolding.

That sounds a lot better than going out to eat. It was also free (BONUS!). Glad to hear you managed to feel a little better.
