Hurry Up And Wait

Jul 19

Waiting for John to finish his huge post on his new site, only to have the whole thing deleted. I’m starving and I have much to tell, including my meeting with Matt and Sabby, and an email from Dayna.
And now I’ll leave you hanging.

This Is Major Tom To Ground Control

Jul 08

It all went terribly wrong on Wednesday when John had to come home from work due to major tooth pain. By mid afternoon he was in such intense pain that I had to rush him to The Majestic Dental Clinic for an emergancy root canal. (And yes, I made plenty of tooth implant jokes). By Thursday, he was feeling much better, so we drove around town a bit before heading to the original Ninfa’s (the best mexican food ever) and then downtown to watch fireworks. I think Sabby metioned that her and Matt went to watch as well, and I actually kept an eye open on the odd chance that we might run into them. Coincidentally, this was the same day our wireless internet crapped out. When we got home we watched Brother Where Art Thou. Amazing movie with a great sound track.
Friday, we went out for groceries and picked up dvds… Ocean’s Eleven, Harry Potter (which we both enjoyed, despite ourselves) and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. We also went to Bakers Pig for what John told me is the best bbq in Houston. It was really good, but I prefer my meat to be a little more cooked and a tad less grease-laden. *wink*
Saturday, we went to Gavelston! Weee! We started the trip off at this crab beach where we walked around in really shallow water looking at hermit crabs. Much to John’s surprise, we saw a sting ray swimming around. He swore he’d never seen one outside of captivity. We followed it around a bit before we took off for the real beach. I am ashamed to admit that it was my first swim in the ocean (ok, gulf, but same thing) in 10 years. It was perfect beach weather, even if we couldn’t stay long on account of my uber whiteness and high risk of sunburn. We ended the trip with marguaritas and more mexican food. The food took a painfully long time and ended up forcing us to postpone our minigolf competition. Hopefully, we’ll be going back next week and bringing Mags along too. We came home, ordered chinese and watched Harry Potter. /weeeee!
Sunday we lounged around playing computer games and attempted to watch Dude Where’s My Car. Unfortunately, the movie sucks complete ass, so we only watched about a third before switching over to Ocean’s Eleven. What’s with the George Clooney “get out of jail, try to win my wife back” trend in movies? And does anyone else remember George when he was on Fact’s Of Life?
That brings us to today. John called from the office to inform me that our internet had been restored for several days, but we still can’t get it working on his machine. Luckily, it’s working on mine! I just tried to repair my Windows ME installation so I can have sound again, but with no luck. Playing Neverwinter Nights without the sound is a bit sucky, but I’ll live. *wink again*
Enough yammering. /my first independance day weekend.

Just Five More Minutes

Jul 01

Last night Mags woke us up every hour crying. It turned out she wanted to drink endless amounts of water, and was so thirsty that she felt fit to cry about it. I suspect the all-you-can-eat cat food buffet may be the cause. Then this morning when I stumbled out with John to let him into the parking garage, she took a horse-sized pee on the sidewalk outside the property management office. Lovely, I know.
On a lighter note, we got the cat back from John’s mom, and she seems to be adjusting well to the dog. Phew. Also, I discovered today that our building has a doggie poop-bag dispenser on Gray. Hopefully, I won’t go down in Post history as the only tennant to use it.
So, this weekend we went to Clear Lake to get the cat from John’s poor bed-ridden mom. She’s awaiting some sort of back surgery and has been in bed since the beginning of June. We picked up Katie, John’s niece and went over to some mall where I bought a couple tank tops and a skirt from the Gap. I also got a really nice red dress from Express (it was my first time in half these stores, as we don’t have ‘em in Canada), so now I have something decent to wear if we decide to hit a fancy restaurant or dinner party. Katie is an even bigger goof than John… hard too imagine, but totally true.
So far, life is good.
