Update thingie

Not a very good start to the day. The toilet overflowed and there were ants in the laundry room and kitchen.

OH and I watched Blow Dry. I ordered it because it stars Alan Rickman, but it turned out to be quite a good movie, with a subtle poly theme.

(Or if you prefer the irrepressible fangirl review: "I want Alan Rickman to shave my head while a stocky Yorkshireman with a rockabilly hairdo and glitter jacket performs Elvis songs in the background! [pant, drool]")

Therapy at 7:30 am, then a meeting at the company I'm contracting for, in which I learned that my deadline is extended two weeks. Yay!

In the evening my sweetie kyubi and I met in SF and tried to see Bride With White Hair but it turned out the listing I saw on the SFGate web site was wrong and that movie wasn't playing after all. So we consoled ourselves with pizza at one of those generic "Italian restaurant run by Asian staff" places that are all over the Richmond district and a visit to Simple Pleasures Cafe. There was live music playing, and a guy with a gorgeous smile carrying the can around asking for contributions for the musicians. A woman with a Pekingese sat at our table and ate a chocolate macaroon right in the dog's face. But the dog seemed good-natured about it. In fact, the dog never stopped smiling the whole time we were there.

Spent the day chained to my computer, alternately working on my writing project, reading alt.poly and filling out mindless quizzes on LiveJournal. Got a surprise Andy Scott related CD from E (my roommate in Devizes...which reminds me, I should post my trip report here).

Canine correction
It was a Pomeranian, not a Pekingese.

Therapy at 7:30 am? Wow, I think my sessions would always start with something along the lines of, "I'm feeling tired today... "

Yow. That's quite a distracting animation you have for your user icon.

Anyway, yeah, 7:30 is early, but it's relationship counseling and my OH is a morning person and somewhat less emotionally articulate than me. So it kind of works to even us out on that score, and that's a good thing.

I am now officially freaked out. Devizes is the town where Richard's mum grew up and where she is buried.

I realise now that the reason you were coming to the UK in April was to attend this event, rather than simply to visit London as a tourist. I should have made more of an effort to get in contact with you, but I was under the impression you weren't here for very long and I didn't want to invite myself round to Liz & David's. Ah well.

I wasn't in England for very long, but I would have liked to see you. Well, I suspect there will be a Next Time before too long...
