In Honor Of The Day

I might have 10 things I did for the pure pleasure of the day. Let's see, shall we?

1. Ran into Michelle who had my new boyfriend, Ben, and my old beau, Bobby, with her in the park on my way to work.

2. Stayed longer in the park despite being a little late to work so I could throw some sticks for the Bobster.

3. Got passport pictures taken as the first step toward renewing my long dead passport in preparation for...I can't tell you what.

4. Sat on a curb and read my book for 20 minutes while eating my lunch time cookies. This was super awesome despite the fact that the curb was so hot it burned my tuchus a little.

5. Ran into the other man in my life, Diego, on the walk from the train. He was so hot he didn't try to jump on me even once.

6. Bought ice cream and ate it while I walked the rest of my way home. Delicious chocolaty goodness.

7. Walked to the park with my own pooch. Had to cut the walk short since she doesn't know her own limits anymore, or rather is unused to having any limits at all. She took some convincing but it was the right thing to do and eventually she took it gracefully.

8. Unapologetically lounged on the couch watching a whole disc of In Treatment (first season). Remind me to write a little something over at PPP about the series. It's...intense.

9. Am now writing this rather than writing a note to my Aunt Rena.

10. Looked up the cost of an iPhone and plan on AT&T's web site for dreaming purposes. You can get a refurbished 16 gig phone for $100 plus the $36 one time activation fee. The plan is the same amount as the Verizon plan I have now, exactly, except for the mandatory data plan. That's $30 a month. While it's probably perfectly reasonable for a data plan it's a little much for the personal coffers. I'll be leaving that part out of the dreaming, perhaps I'll write myself a dream data plan grant or invoke the Fairy Godperson clause or invent an iPhone-specific government stimulus plan. It's only for dreams, what can it hurt, right?


  1. Oooo, In Treatment. How is my old boyfriend Dan doing?

  2. Your boyfriend isn't do so well now that you've abandoned him for someone else. He's deep in therapy and it's a good goddamned thing. :)

  3. I've never heard of the series. I'm intrigued.

    Can anyone tell me why an ice cream cone, made at home, is ENTIRELY different from an ice cream cone purchased at a stand? We have some of the yummiest ice cream ever in our own freezer, and I bought perfectly acceptable cones at the market, but the entire feel of it was just wrong. What's up with that?!

  4. Sounds like a beautiful day. And, I think $30.00 data plan is the going rate, at least for AT&T (not just the iPhone, but any of them). Worth it if you really have to have it, but otherwise, not needed.
