Well, well a night without writing, my sweet readers. Sorry. Tonight’s the night when my wife’ll read this after soaking up the sun (errr… I mean suntan lotion) for a week in Jersey. She probably already knows the adventures of Georgina the leaping turtle, and there’s nothing new to report. I don’t think so anyway. Saturday late morning I went to a graduation party and saw the usual suspects plus a few. I had some punch and some little rollie things. They were ok. I then had plans to hit a few movies while I had the chance. I started with Disturbia, which all the high schoolers seemed to like. Ugh. 90 really fast, plotless minutes of hacking and slicing, with a bikini thrown in to keep the teens awake. Then I met Matt & Ray for Georgia Rule. I really wasn’t interested in this one, but Ray was begging people to see it with him; and I wanted to see if it was going to be the trainwreck promised by Lindsay Lohab. I’ve not seen a Lindsay Lohab movie in a while and can’t believe what happened to those nice twins from the parent trap, but I went to see it. It was ok. Yes, just ok. Nothing to write home about (hahaha but here I am doing it!).
That evening I had plans to go the last graduation party on my list. I had taught the boy junior year, and I was kind of interested to see his homelife. Boy, did I see it! The house was really really cool. And there was a woman there who looked really familiar. I think she’s a teacher somewhere. I took another student’s graduation card with me because she said she’d be there, but the she said she’d be three hours late and I wasn’t planning on waiting. I talked to one of my traveler’s who was at the same party, and she said her mother was taking her to Super Target afterward for supplies. (Yes, two nights before we leave.) And I suggested I’d follow them so I knew how to make it out of this odd (but swanky) neighborhood.
We shopped through Target and looked at all kinds of odd things she thought she needed, and then I went home to my beer and Smallville. End of the day.
Yawn. Got up after 8 and knew I love Cracker’s, which is a cool little hole in the wall breakfast place where I like to go sometimes with my fam. I grabbed the Sunday paper and drove over there. The manager asked if it was just me today, and I smiled. Not because I don’t miss Donna & Claire, but because I didn’t have to share my newspaper! The Gods of Print smiled on me! Typically, I make a throwaway pile and Donna demands to go through it, and then she finds some odd little piece that she never typically reads. She wants to keep that one page, then decides to keep my whole junk pile. Then she puts it neatly in the back seat of the truck, but won’t let me throw it away. And then I always find it UNMOVED a week later when we get back in the truck to go somewhere to eat. Ugh. BUT, dear readers, today was different! Today I read whatever part I wanted. I let a lot of it sitting in the waiting area, and I took two pieces that’ll probably still be in the truck when I get home!
Later in the day Matt’s parents invited a few of us over to watch some tourism movies on Prague, Berlin, Krakow, and Budapest. I felt like I was ahead of my game and decided to go. We watched four short films and ate popcorn, then I wanted NYPD pizza. Donna doesn’t like this pizza very much and usually never agrees to it, so guess where I had dinner? Ray came along since I can’t eat a large pizza alone, and after that I came home. Now, the laundry has buzzed, and if I don’t see you tomorrow, Good morning, good afternoon, and good night.
