Wear Eyeguards!

That's the lesson for today. Saturday I got hit, hard, in the face; if I hadn't been wearing eyeguards, I'd've lost my eye for sure. I'm still a little tender, and there's a slight greenish tinge on the inside of my eye/nose, but it looks like I've avoided a black eye or a broken nose. Which is good.

The menu is nearly finalized: steak, halibut, gnocchi w/ blue cheese & walnuts, and chicken tenders are the choices, with the last one suitable for children and the next-to-last one the vegetarian option. I have agreed--extremely reluctantly--to allow some friends to throw a VERY small shower for me, mostly so we can drink mimosas. I made it clear that the appearance of any shower games will cause me to walk out. Plus, it has to be after yoga (if it's on a Sunday) or after handball (if on a Saturday). The amusing part of this story is that, about a week ago, my mother called C, at work--and made him promise not to tell me she did so, though he of course broke that promise after exacting MY promise to not tell her I knew--because she's worried that I'm not letting people throw me a shower. I don't know why this bothers her so much--most likely because she doesn't know all of the other things about which she will eventually be bothered. Now we just have to print and assemble the response cards, I have to address the envelopes, and we can mail these suckers off. This week. Meanwhile, there's work to do. No, really!

The menu sounds great! And the shower will be fun. Remember, they are *your* friends. Drink a lot and let 'em have their good time.

And wow, about the eye. Yay for eyeguards!

Help me Dude, I'm lost.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw Elvis in the supermarket yesterday.

No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".

He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new plasmatv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.

But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a plasma tv .

Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger then I'm gonna go home and ask Michael Jackson to come round and watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on my new plasma tv .

And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .

"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "

Strange day or what? :-)
