Between Something and Nothing
Blah Blah Blah Hurricane. Blah Blah Blah Earthquake. Blah Blah Blah Libya. BORING.
Life and work have left this blog thingy a little lost and just there. Sitting. Waiting. I don't have anything really to blah blah blah about.
I made it back from Idaho. I know you were all on the edge of your seat. And this time, no hair bands were on my flight, so I dodged that bullet. However, I was captive by the new version of Arthur playing on the video monitors.
Honestly, it was like a bad car wreck. You didn't want to look, but couldn't help it. Why oh why do people find Russell whats-his-name to be funny? I truly speak for everyone when I tell you that he is not. And how much money must Helen Mirren need to take on a role like this? The woman has an Oscar® for g-d's sake! I mean, Marisa Tomei does too, but....
So, after I got over that trauma (Dudley Moore and Liza rolling over in their graves.....what? Liza's not dead? hmmmm), I had Denton take me to dinner. But I got the idea to invite our newer gay neighbors to go with us.
Tom and Sal are great. So is their do Lola. She loves me. And since we were going on vacation the other week and they walk Lola like five times a day, I just asked if they'd look up the drive to make sure no one was you know, breaking in.
Sal was great and actually walked Lola up the drive and around the house. So we brought back treats from Maine - for Lola.
We were at Stonewall Foods (they make the Barefoot Contessa retail foods) in Maine and they had a section on dog and cat treats. We thought it would be the good gift to bring back for their thoughtfulness.
But we went out for Mexican. The company was good. The food was good. The tequila was great. Someone from my high school (but not the reunion) sat behind us, but neither of us acknowledged each other. And one of my former bosses at a job, now long ago, was there too. She hugged me (ewww) and wants to have lunch. That's a little different for me. But it's all about networking and not burning those bridges, so I'll shoot her an email to see if she'd like to. It might all be chatter.
Ok, I got this off late today....and I probably have stuff to do. Probably.
