home!!!!!!!!!!!! My precious precious car is now safe
and sound in her garage again, yay!
this morning with a splitting headache, like literally, felt like someone was
slicing my brain in two with a hot knife or a sheet of tin or something... ick. Lay there in agony for quite some time before
extracting myself from the covers, took some medicine and a giant glass of
water and sat on the couch for a while focusing all of my energy on not puking.
I was afraid for a while that I would end up getting a migraine but the onset
of those has been so interesting lately that I would have known right away...
flashing lights, numbness in my face and arms, the doc thinks it's time for me
to see a neurologist again but it's been months since I got a really bad one...
I finally got in the shower and by the time I was ready to leave I was feeling
much better (which is too bad, it looks like it's going to be a really nice day
So, back to
Delilah... Had to work late last night, so I met Jim at Savannah's (he had agreed to chauffeur me to
Pep Boys) where we had a couple cocktails and listened to a great band. Live
music is my weakness, I just can't get enough of it.
Then we stopped by my house quick to thaw out a little pizza and we were on our
way! The guys at Pep Boys were incredibly funny, I
asked them where the incentive was to pay for the repairs since they had left
my car in the middle of the lot with the doors unlocked. At any rate, I was
approved for the PB credit card so I was able to get the hell out of there
pretty quickly (and can now get some more work done this summer that I so
desperately need) and celebrate! Dinner and wine at Carmine's Table was
interesting - the bartender was an asshole, the location sucks, but the overall
experience was great, and I saw my friend Jonathan working there. The food was
deceptively filling, too! After dinner I went over to Hannaford for some
tortilla chips and apparently discovered some sort of personal hygiene crisis
while I was there, because I left w/ cotton balls, razor blades, toothpaste,
mouthwash and a new toothbrush. Oh yeah, and the tortilla chips. They were all
out of round, which make superior nachos, so I had to settle for the triangular
ones. I was so happy to be mobile again that I cranked up the tunes when I got
home and danced for a while like a total goofball, then hopped in bed. I saw
the most obscenely huge clam on Letterman last night! Some idiot had some bass
pumping that threatened to disturb my sleep, but I passed out before I had a
chance to do anything about it, and woke up this morning with a splitting
Well, it's about time to compose the happy hour announcement... have
to check the weather to see whether or not Mill Rd. is a viable option for tomorrow
night. We have a new member so I'll have to write something extra special! And
of course anyone is welcome at anytime to sign up for the list (a future
project here will include an online request form that will automatically add
people to the list) so......... if you're reading this and want to recieve a weekly announcement telling you where the happy
hour workgroup will be congregating, send an email to the Happy Hour Mistress!
Then the workgroup will meet, review your credentials, come up with an
appropriate initiation ritual... just kidding. The only thing we do is get
together and drink! Well, drink and partake in other assorted nonsense as we
see fit. And with that, the work week is coming to a close and the blessed,
blessed weekend will be upon us! Now that I have my wheels again, might be a
nice weekend for a perfunctory drive to Woodstock or maybe the Magic Hat brewery...
or kayaking! Wheeeee!
