In response to: You probably thought this day would never come....

dg:   Huh, I never thought about it but, if I had, I would never have thought this day would come.

All the best for whatever the move brings you - it's hard to leave somewhere that's been such a part of your identity, so good on you both.

Yeah, that's a glitch from time to time, where, on preview, you see how your post would look but the text in the box has gone. Always copy the text in the box, then on preview if the box is empty, paste the text back in and it'll post.

senyar:   This made my day. I can only surmise that she was aware of the most likely outcome before she embarked on this journey, so I don't feel too bad about laughing.

In response to: Stuff I did. (With music.)

arse_hat:   mightshould, I have had many things come to visit me and the cats but never a snake.

Senyar: congrats on the kitchen but damn I hate shitty dog owners.

I could have deposited the cheque on my phone but I am trying hard to walk everywhere when I can. I just need to get some more activity in.

As for a movie hat.

This would work as a tuque and dark glasses is how I look a good part of the year.

In response to: Stuff I did. (With music.)

tangerine:   Hooray JanetLand's new nephew, hooray Senyar's nearly finished kitchen!

And arse_hat, this:
had to run to a bank to deposit a cheque so I went out about 11:30 PM
reminded me so hard of so many things I miss about living in Canada. I currently live in a fairly calm and law-abiding part of the Bay Area but I wouldn't even consider heading out in the middle of the night to deposit a cheque.

If I had to pick a movie hat it might be that black beret that the girl with the blue umbrella and pageboy haircut wears in Gregory's Girl. I'd bring the umbrella, too.

In response to: Stuff I did. (With music.)

senyar:   I finally managed to find someone to finish off my kitchen (my first builder went awol, leaving me with a half-finished wreck). It took ages to find someone reliable, but this guy is a proper old-school geezer who's been in the trade for 40 years. He's not cutting corners, and it's all starting to come together. Two more weeks and it'll be done.

In other news, a dog bit me today - twice! It was with a couple of other dogs and two women, and it ran past me then ran back and bit me on my calf, shaking his head from side to side. I screamed at the owner "he's biting me!" and she said "Oh. He's never done that before". I told her to get him on the lead, but he ran off, and then ran back and bit me on the other calf. Luckily I had on my hiking pants and they are thick and he didn't break the skin, but it hurts like a mofo and I'll have some lovely bruises.

The dog still wasn't on the lead when they walked off with him.

I reported it to the forest constables but without any details of the owner, there's not much they can do.

On Sunday I'm going to a 60th birthday party. My friend has rented a cinema, he's showing a film that will be a surprise, and the dress code is that you have to wear a hat from a movie. I have one from a fairly obscure (but favourite) film - the fedora (I know!) that Sam the Pickle Man (played by Peter Riegert) gave Izzy (Amy Irving) when he was wooing her, in Crossing Delancey.

mightshould:   Our weather is in its very brief agreeable stage. Not sweltering and not cold. I and kitties are enjoying spending time out in the kitty kompound on the evenings that I'm home.

They flushed a snake on Monday, and were careful to stay (hopefully) far enough away while harassing it. I broke up their game and ushered it away.

I seem to have better luck at being a bouncer/security.....heh.

JanetLand:   I prefer this video of that song because . . . well I won't say why, that way nobody can argue with me.

I too work in a place that attracts yelling people. There were some yesterday. Even when I agree with the politics I get so tired of the yelling.

On the bright side, I have a brand-new little nephew, born just yesterday.

senyar:   Having talked to Pips about this over the last few months, I think it's going to be a good move for you both. I'll be sad not to see you when I (eventually get to) visit NYC. But I'm happy for you both.
