Wow! February! And winter still hasn't truly hit. I *really* heart global warming.
Wednesdays still rock! We eventually trickled into the library and got some good books and movies.
After sending the lineup through the shower/bath I painted 70 nails. Holy moly! Gogo got banished or I'm sure I'd have ended up painting his, too. He was (repeatedly) swirling around too close to the open bottle, but the last straw was when he dribbled cold water down the back of my pants as I was bending forward to paint nails, LOL! "Go NOW! Go NOW and leave me!" (Thanks again, Sir Andrew. Dunno what I'd do w/out POTO.)
Tonight we watched Ella Enchanted, which is basically nothing even remotely like the book (at least not as *I* remember the book) but still a fun movie. The book is definitely worth reading. Ella looked remarkably like the Pricess Diaries girl. Mainly because she was. I explained who Cary Elwes was by telling the kids that "he's the guy who was *mostly dead* in the Princess Bride." ("Ohhh!! Him!") The kids got a kick out of "Carlotta" (POTO) playing someone good. Eric Idle, of course, they know. Once again, a subset of Britain's 12 actors star together in a film. ;o)
Trillian doesn't hate me yet for sending her to Banana Hell twice a day. (antibiotics) She's almost done, so hopefully she will still love me when all's said and done. Why is the stuff banana flavour? Why not chicken or beef? I suspect it's really people medicine, though it's cheaper than that.
Sluggie was teaching Trillian tricks the other day. She tried "stay," which cats are too smart to obey, and then she taught her to stand up and rip a treat can lid full of kibble out of her hand, throw it on the floor, and devour the kibble. OK, so that was pretty much instinct. . .
After a rousing round of chess, which involved a lot of smashing and "nearly-falling-through-the-ceiling" noises, they are listening to a Winnie the Pooh tape. A real one. None of that Disney nonsense. It's read by Graham Somebodyorother and he's perfect for it.
My friend showed me an Eddie Dickens book and they look so funny! Lots of author interjections of a very humourous nature. For instance, the dad says something about the author not liking him and making bad things happen to him, and none of the other characters have a clue what he's talking about. :o) The Borders Outlet store is going out of biz and has them CHEAP.
John says a nasty worm is coming on Friday. Not sure how to take that. But I guess I'll put on my stillsuit and grab my Maker hooks so I'm ready for it. Maybe I can plant a thumper on the next dune over to divert it. . .
What I should have done today:
What I really did:
Library (including donating a bunch of mags we dejunked, YAY!), blogging, writing, laundry (well laundry's kind of a given, isn't it?), organizing a bathroom drawer and my earrings (most of which I can't wear cuz I'm suddenly allergic to them *rolleyes* - who wants earrings?? Anyone?? Bueller??) watching a movie with the kids and preparing to watch another with John. I HEART Wednesdays!
