I’d been meaning to mention, we got new neighbors. A seemingly nice gay couple moved into the hooker-vacated apartment. I say seemingly because we’ve only ever said hello to each other. But one of them I see everyday, and I hope to ask him his name. They have a little wiener dog named Vienna (how cute is that?). The downstairs neighbors are FINALLY leaving. (insert crowd cheering here) I’ve grown so very tired of them constantly slamming their door every time they use it. Also, the parties where their friends are out yakking underneath our window. I laughed last Saturday when I was awake at 2am and heard the sprinklers go off on them. 🙂
Checked out the farmer’s market this morning, which had a ton more vegetables than they did the last time we were there. We didn’t buy any today though, but Geoff almost succumbed to the green beans. Naturally we went to Peet’s but there were no tables free, and I didn’t want to sit at the bar. I just felt too high and boxed in. We passed through the mall, I shopped for underwear at Victoria’s Secret (it was on sale) and then went to Safeway to get provisions for burgers tonight. Spent the rest of the afternoon doing laundry and had a nap while the boys went for a run.
I think every Canadian I know is away this weekend, which is a little frustrating because I wanted to talk to some of them. I suppose I have to wait until Tuesday.
We watched The Village last night, and it was good. I thought it would be scarier, which is fine, scary would have prevented me from sleeping. It left me thinking about the movie, and the characters. I do like M. Night Shyamalan’s movies. Geoff said he enjoys the way they are filmed, and the stories they tell. I’d have to agree. I don’t want to divulge any of the story in case you haven’t seen it, but I think it’s worth renting.
Thank God July is almost over. I feel like I’m in a rush for the months to go by, and yet I know I should be savoring each day. I am just anxious to start looking at houses, and anyone can understand that.
I suppose I better go and give Elijah his bath. I’ll close with a quote from The Village.
Ivy Walker: How is it that you are so brave while the rest of us shake in our boots?
Lucius Hunt: I don’t think of what might happen, only what must be done.
