I am super excited
. I have tickets to the just added Jeff Tweedy concert on Saturday. I am taking my cousin who is being super poopy about going. Quote - this guy better be good - End quote. This from the guy who dragged me to see Tricky, not so good, and My Life with Thrill Kill Kult, not very good either.
I saw Constantine last night. I wanted to see In Good Company, which has been running at 5:00 for weeks. When I finally am able to go, not showing at 5:00 anymore. So saw Constantine again. I have an inappropriate crush on Shia Le Beouf. Keanu is still pretty hot, very, very skinny right now. The only celebrity autograph I have is a signed publicity picture from A Walk In the Clouds signed by Mr. Reeves. It was a donation to an auction that we didn't use and my friend Ray gave it to me. I like it more because Ray wanted me to have it as much as it is Keanoo's autograph.
After the movie I had to go shop an ice cream parlor. Unfortunately I did not give them very good marks. But the ice cream was yummy.
This morning I slept through my alarm clock and have been out of sorts all day. This morning was the one time I was sort of glad the cat woke me up. The poor cat was left alone all day and night yesterday. She was so glad when I got home last night. Then she was mad I was gone so long. Still have not idea when she is going back to the Mom.
It's my brother's birthday today. Happy Birthday, james! I of course did not have my act together, and had no idea what to get anyway, so I called the Bellagio and got him a gift certificate. I hope he uses it to take his wife out to dinner when she visits. They were very nice on the phone and kept the certificate at the concerierge desk for him to pick up. Saved me $20.
NPR has a great stream of a Wilco concert from DC. Everyone should check it out. There is a excellent version of Don't Fear the Reaper in the second encore.
I had a great Sunday. I got to see my 3 suburban mommies. I miss these guys so much. We all used to work together at a Catholic school and go out after work and get completely hammered, quite often. Now they are all married and each of them have 3 children each. We try to get together for each of our birthdays, which happen to be spread out very evenly through out the year. But with so many kids and us living so far apart, it has been a challenge coordinating our schedules. We were able to get together this Sunday morning for a brunch type meal. Then all of the sudden it was 3 + hours later. Then when we finally left, I went over to IKEA since I was all the way out in the far suburbs. I bought a couple of rugs, a new lamp [I really needed one since my old lamp almost burned down my apartment], cookies, light bulbs, and box of pint glasses. All for the bargain price of $80. BUT IKEA doesn't like carts in the parking lot, so I was by myself and had to drag all the stuff to the car in one trip. My shoulder still hurts. Now I really want more rugs. I might go check the website now.
