Was that really the long weekend? Man! At least I have a second one coming up this weekend. I just did crazytown, I think.
Saturday I got my hair coloured (it's now more red, with blonde highlights) and cut. I think it's too short but time'll fix that. Then I hosted a Tupperware party and discovered I should add "pantry reorganiser" to my potential job options of choice. The Tupperware lady made a very quick and frankly, delicious, rocky road. Was a lovely catch up. Then I made it to my full body massage only a bit late. Was tough lying on my stomach with the head cold. Probably got in the way of relaxing a bit. Sat and had tea with the therapist afterwards and chatted and ended up signing up for her Thursday night new yoga class. And am oddly looking forward to it. Then I hot footed it off to catundra
's, hideously late. She had been dogsitting Benji and made a delicious soup for dinner. Was a thoroughly lovely evening of talk, a little craft, and just hanging out on an almost wintry evening.
Sunday I got up late after a late night, headed down to editormum
's with Benji to help pack and do the final once over on the proof of Horn
. Zoomed back in the evening to feed the dog and then go out for drinks with R. Had a good chat, among other things, about my cv and my job sitch and what I want to do etc.
Again with the late night. Slept in and mooched around and then caught up with maelkann
before he nicks off for 6 months. It was my turn to pick a movie and since he chose the pain that was Notorious last time, which only serves for us to use a baseline for "worst movie ever made", I opted for a romcom. And chose I Love You, Man
. I dunno. We loaded up on icecreams and candy and were in a bit of a silly mood. If I think about it too hard, the female characters were not that strong, and probably a bit upsetting, and the gender thing - constantly playing with assumptions, could have been interesting but possibly dances on the side of ... if you can relate to women, you probably can't relate to men (if you're a man). However, it was very silly and Paul Rudd did a very good job of making uncool look really really uncool and try hard. And I had a lot of fun with it. We were the only people in a pack cinema who got the Lost references. I think that's sad!
Took Benji to meet my sister's puppy since he will be spending the weekend there and um ... yeah. Came home, had a close encounter with a tree frog at my front door. Considered calling someone but toughed it out and snuck it and left it there . Hope it's gone in the morning.
And now I have a big headache and a lot of work that I didn't get done this weekend. And it's 9.30! Where does the time go?!
