Blissful (June 08) Saturday

Ahhh, what bliss: it is Saturday.

And even though self woke up with an extreme crick in her neck, she is ready with a post on her various activities yesterday:

  • Self bought the most gorgeous doggie bed in the world. From Costco. For $21.99
  • After a morning spent writing and reading and doing errands, self fell asleep on the couch. Had nightmare. Something involving knives. Woke up, none the worse for wear.
  • Self used left-over roast chicken to make a salad with baby spinach, sliced red onions, sliced almonds, sliced tomatoes (from Costco, salmonella-free), and shavings of Asiago cheese: dee-lish!
  • Self called Dearest Mum in Las Vegas, to wish her luck before her concert tonight (in a friend’s house). Dearest Mum all happiness: only 25 people had been invited (as friend’s townhouse quite snug), but, apparently twice that number are coming. Dearest Mum’s friend is having a heart attack, but Dearest Mum herself is unperturbed, says guests will only be too happy to sit on the floor, on the stairs.
  • Self watched (after hubby came home) “The Hunt for Red October” and was struck by the young Alec Baldwin’s good looks and also surprisingly good acting ability, Scott Glenn’s inimitable intensity, and the patience of the script, which took its time instead of jumping from one action scene to the next. Also, self wondered how Tom Clancy could know so much about nuclear subs: it has to be all research, but the story has plot and character. All hail, Tom Clancy!
  • Then, in the middle of the very exciting movie, self fell asleep once again (Boy, the week must have really tired her out). When she awoke (around 11:30), the first thing she did was grab the remote and switch to the Sci-Fi station but — alas! — showing was “Doctor Who”, and self gnashed her teeth at the thought that, for the second week in a row, she had missed “Battlestar Galactica.”

Tonight, dinner in the city followed by concert at Davies. Stay tuned, dear blog readers, stay tuned.
