...that she might be a sufficient reason for young Candide

Transitions from Bad to Good @ 04:50 pm

Current Mood: cheerful
Current Music: www.wcbn.org "NH Road Trip Sound Track"

Well I'll be damned...I tried listening to wcbn again, and it just worked. Sweet action.

Liberty Street Video had a giant sign in their window advertising:

666

Six Movies, Six Nights, Six Dollars.

I need to put that and this to use in tandem, I'm thinking. That or get frickin' netflix. Not thrilled about having both netflix AND cable, though...grr...I think I might just ignore that problem, because I don't want to deal with it.

I feel really fucking good. Seriously. I've been riding high ever since around five seconds after my temperature most recently leveled out at 98.6. Today I took a brief blow to my good spirits when I ran into my former dance partner, TOTALLY FROZE UP, and made an utter ass of myself. I owe her an apology, and the best I could muster was small talk. Fucking A. But the reality is that's a fairly minor problem in the greater scheme of things. Other than that five minute fiasco, today wound up being very cool. I got up on five hours sleep, and drove over to drop off my car at the auto shop for a tune up. Borrowing my freind's discount card, I spent all of $7, and my car feels actively happier under me. Heartwarming. Since it's a full service shop, they couldn't get to my car right away, so I walked downtown, and had lunch/coffee at a deli, sorted out some insurance issues on which re-registering my car is predicated, finished up the paper for Kieras (still have much work to do on the paper with Laird, but that's a bigger task, so I'm dealing with it last. Focus focus), and outlined the plot for a novel. Then I packed up my things and walked around, eventually got over to Borders where I picked up Dave Barry's new novel and the complete works of Lewis Carroll...very excited about those. Also I ran into my former dance partner. Bleh. I felt like a total dick. Probably with good reason. It's done now, though.

Then I walked back and got my car, and drove to the hair salon and got a haircut. A good day, and it's not even 5.

Plans for today? Well, I think I'll try to actually do some work on the other paper, and talk to people on the phone. If I heard Fish right on his show, Pardo's playing tonight? If so, I'm totally going to that. We'll see.

I smiled at a lot of strangers to-day. Many of them were cute and female. I need to wander aimlessly around on foot on a more regular basis. It is good for my spirits. I need to run into the few people I have TOTALLY SHAFTED less often. It is not.

First off - congrats on hearing CBN. It was a hard fought battle, I know -
Second - we could look into getting a joint account and splitting a netflix account. I'd totally be up for it. What do you think?

complete works of lewis carroll? I'm jealous :) borders can be such the danger, sometimes...

did you used to take ballroom dancing? What type of dance did you do? if you can swing, than sir, you must take me out swing dancing one of them days. Like, a day when I'd be in the same state as you. But it will happen. Oh yes. It will happen....

:) and look! fishy has a user-icon. Cute!

He has two, even. And the blurred one disturbs me Eternal Darkness style. I can swing. We'll do that some time. I can cross-step waltz, too, but there are fewer opportunities to refresh that particular skill.

when does one use the chance to cross-step waltz (i.e. what style of music?)

slowish three three, generally, though you can in fact do a cross-step waltz in four four time, it just rotates. The cross step itself means that fast waltz has to be rotary or viennese or somesuch.
