Sigh, so hot. We hit the triple digits today. Reminds me a little of when we went camping at the river (the Colorado river I believe) in California. Except then we had the water for relief.

I indulged my inner chick today by watching The Prince & Me. I loves me a good Julia Stiles movie. It was cute and a decent chick flick. Rest assured Daddy, I didn’t make Elijah watch it, he slept through it. 🙂

Nothing else is going on, just trying to stay cool in the heat. No new developments on the visa or house front. Oh, well there is the small detail that we can’t leave the country while we’re waiting for the H-visa, so should it not get done by January, the Edmonton visit will be off. But I’m hopeful it will all work out.

I guess I’ll sign off, and close with a quote from 10 Things I Hate About You.

Kat Stratford: You can’t just buy me a guitar every time you screw up, you know.
Patrick: Yeah I know. But then you know there’s always drums, and bass, and maybe even one day a tambourine.

I’m A What?

You’re a Raccoon!

Devious and cunning, you like to hide behind masks and strike when
others least expect it. You maintain a carefully-crafted facade of being cute,
charming, and even lovable, but truly have moments of trickery and viciousness.
When finding no one to attack, but still finding yourself needing to fulfill
such primal urges, you will often attack bags of trash. Parts of you make a
popular motif for a hat.

Dame Limps-A-Lot

It’s not broken, I just crunched it really good. They took x-rays just to be certain, they showed a normal foot, and she said I had great feet. The plan is to keep icing it for the next couple of days, and try to keep it elevated. Now those ice packs we took from the hospital will pay off. 🙂

The record stands, I have no broken bones.

Clutzy Family

I think I may have broken my pinkie toe. Same one Geoff broke a few years ago. It really hurts, it looks a little off, and there is noticeable bruising. So I guess I’ll call the doctor tomorrow morning, and go from there. I’ll tell you this, I won’t go through what Geoff did. They gave him like 6 needles all around the toe to numb it, then snapped it in place and taped it to the toe next to it. Geoff said the needles hurt more than them snapping back in place. It was horrible to watch. I guess i’ll have to update my 100 things list if it is indeed broken (#66- I have never broken a bone).

Just been a pretty laid back weekend. Geoff had to go into work on Saturday, so I didn’t make it to Jayla’s. I did get to Hallmark to buy the next ornament in the Dr. Suess series (it’s the only series we currently collect). I will likely get back before Christmas to get some more ornaments. Since Geoff didn’t work today, we played hooky from church and went to Peet’s. It was his first day off since July 3. He’s planning on taking next weekend off too, but I won’t hold my breath. There is a lot going on at work for him, so I understand.

We’re having ribs for dinner tonight. I may end up watching VH1’s reality tv, which is addictive. I like Hogan Knows Best, it’s funny. Plus, once a Hulkamaniac, always a Hulkamaniac.

Time to go. I’ll close with a quote from Return To Me.

Megan Dayton: You’re going to get a heart, I know. And you’ll be able to do all the things you never could before. That’s what you’ve gotta concentrate on. Think of riding a bike, and going to Italy… and dating really handsome men. That, I know, has to happen for one of us.
Grace Briggs: I’m getting a new heart, not a new ass.

Dear Tom Cruise,

Your lack of belief in the existence of clinical depression tells me one thing: you didn’t spend $10. to see War Of The Worlds. If vitamins can possibly help me out of this spiraling funk, please let me know which ones. Dinos? Pebbles? Freds?

Please, I’m crying out for help.

Misc Thoughts

I read a news story last night that made me say, Yeah! See? I’m Not The Only One! A British teenager was hospitalized after riding Disney World’s Tower Of Terror. It’s a damn scary ride. I was traumatized riding it, I screamed bloody murder on it. I didn’t go into cardiac arrest like the girl, but damn if I wasn’t still shaking ten minutes after the ride. Poor Glen felt so bad for making me ride it.

Scrubs gets its recognition with a few Emmy nods, including best comedy and best actor in a comedy (Zach Braff). Couldn’t happen to a better show. They’re a long shot, but hey, sometimes the Emmy’s can surprise you (not often enough though).

Friday I’m going to break the bad news to Jen that I won’t be coming back to Harry & David. 🙁 It’s more than just missing my staff discount, I’ll miss not working with Nicole and Jen.

So some retailers “accidentally” sold the new Harry Potter books, and this is news why? And a judge forbid them to read it? A little excessive don’t you think? I mean if some lucky person got a hold of the next Lemony Snicket book ahead of everyone else, I’d think that person pretty lucky. I’ll be rushing out to Tattered Cover on October 18th to get our copy, and ideally having it read the same day.

Anyways, I’m going to close now with one of my favorite quotes from Futurama.

God: Bender, being God isn’t easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you. And if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch, like a safecracker or a pickpocket.
Bender: Or a guy who burns down a bar for the insurance money.
God: Yes, if he makes it look like an electrical thing. If you do things right, people won’t be sure you’ve done anything at all.
