10,082 – Tuesday

Our initial plan for Tuesday Date day was to go see Avatar – It wasn’t meant to be, given that after shopping we got a bit sick instead of a movie, we  downloaded and played wii uno.

Still not feeling so hot – yummy quiche for breakfast, and tonight we watched fanboys & extract and had a nice picnic upstairs – tried the new domino’s pizza – no the greatest, more than a little greasy. Movies weren’t the best, but it’s nice to spend time with BHK in our little treehouse.

Woke up with a sore throat – hopefully I’m not succumbing to BHK’s lingering congestion, and it was only dust from the loft. We’ll know more soon enough!

10,062 – wednesday

It’s weird that my life is so cross-referenced on the web that I post 4 entries in various parts of facebook  for each journal post I make. sorry about that!

Watched There Will Be Blood last night with BHK. (We’re rolling the netflix queue again)… and, not to sound like the horse from Ren & Stimpy, but No sir, I dodn’t think I have any use for the movie. It seemed like a very long 2nd act to me. Didn’t surprise me that it was from the same cat that did Magnolia, another film I didn’t really dig. No sir, I don’t like it.

My newest nickname is “Dr. Polarbearchesthair” for taking care of BHK while she has the sickies – If I can just get the laptop to the bed, maybe she’ll rest! Fortunately, she has her DS and a copy of Lego Indiana Jones to keep her situated for the time being.

assorted doodles from today – first – from the end of there will be blood. Take that, Eli!


The next – a random guy blowing bubbles

10,061 -Tuesday

I like that I live somewhere that still uses horse-drawn carriages alongside the jets. 

BHK and I finally viewed Watchmen last night – not bad.. I actually think I prefer the revised ending, though the characters itself needed a lot of explanation to BHK. I give it a 6/10… Better than it might’ve been.

BHK still has her cold – looks like it’s moving down from her sinus to her chest now – hopefully, it means she’s getting better.

Got Heron: Steam Machine for the Wii – or “Yet another pipes game” – it’s a lot of fun, and stress levels are high, especially in multiplayer.

Off to the grocery – going to get some filling for tonight’s quiche feast!

It seems that Christmas is in the air in this part of North Beach. BHK and the Nailles… not even thanksgiving! however, I don’t mind the music, especially if we get sugar cookies with red and green sprinkles, while watching Christmas Vacation.

9860 – Wednesday

Threw my back out pretty seriously this morning – this evening, and I’m still recovering from it a bit. I’ve alos decided to get back on the diet wagon, monitoring my intake more carefully again. I can keep weight off only when I’m more observant about my workouts and how much I’m feeding myself.

Got another nice short haircut for my interview on Friday. Just have to trim the beard and print copies of my tightened resume, and I’m set! 

Jay and Sean officially announced that they’re having a second child! We went over this evening to celebrate and do some long overdue chitty-chattin and eating of many cheese and crackers… and watching “will success spoil rock hunter?

9804 – saturday

Good morning, dear journal – I will be updating you little by little over the course of today.

Using my starry-eyed icon to represent my brain on oxy-c for my back today. Very painful, but I’m taking the stupification way out today, along with my heating pad.

Later – Bhk home from her schoolwork – Back is still fairly out. Heating pad is helping, and I’m having chinese food with the in-laws while watching NCIS.

Bugah comes over tomorrow. I can hardly wait! We’ll put in some quality buddy time this week – I have to remember to ask if Harry Potter is acceptable for him to see. Certainly Wii games and some outside time by the bay will happen.

Set up my google voice account – 410-929-6473 (can call it anywhere from the continental usa for free) – likely will go to voicemail, though.

atw man 4th, originally uploaded by scottobear.

happy 4th of july from the atw man – watch your fingers!

note – seen after we went out too catch the Land of the Lost Movie today – I rather liked it, and I’m a fan of the original show.

9741 – sun

Never did make it to Surrat house – Instead, we watched My Name is Bruce with Sean and Duncan. Teddy Grahams, hummus and hot dogs w/ kraut for all! Jay missed out, because he was sick at home.

Today was another stay at home day – took a hard walk around the neighborhood, and some chitty-chats with William Callas and Chris.

Visited Coffee Tea and Whimsy, and got some crabber crackers, a keychain giftie for BHK and caramel sauce for all!

Chris won her first-played game of Can’t Stop vs BHK and me, while Larry mowed the yard.

Later, the in-laws came back over for quiche with peas & broccoli from the garden, and we watched some ocean documntaries and ate vanilla ice cream with the aforementioned sauce… and blueberries!

Did I mention that BHK and I went to see Star Trek last Tuesday, dear journal? I seem to have skipped over it. I liked it just fine, thinking it’s #3 on my list of favorite star Trek movies, after #1 (Galaxy Quest) and #2 (Wrath of Khan). BHK enjoyed it, too, probably more than I did! We may be taking William to see UP on Tuesday matinee. (Which I’ve been looking more forward to than Trek, actually!)

Happy Anniversary, LJ – 9 years doing entries. Hard to believe, though my posts of late have been petty scanty. I need to get back on the wagon and produce something I’ll want to look back on in a few years.

IN back news, I got my second epidural today… not working so great – may be due to scar tissue issues. next one will be injected through my side rather than the back, if I get another.

After my shot to the spine (pictures to follow), we visited at the in-laws for a few – had chinese food and hung out – Adam came over and played a little guitar with Larry and Stone.

Adam fessed up to trying adderall before his finals… not sure how happy  / unhappy I am with that. Not prescribed to him. Misuse can easily become abuse.

Watched Children of Men – not bad, but not mind-blowing, either. Worth seeing on tv, but perhaps not a non-netflix rental.

9715 – Friday – Beware the ides of May!


Newton demanded equal op art rights for Pye’s pic yesterday.

BHK got a massive collection of books and boardgames from freecycle today – enough for a new game a night for at least a week or three. Most of the books will be passed on to goodwill or mulch-too smoke damaged or not interesting enough to keep- but a few goodies in there.

We went to lunch with Chris at the BBQ place – I think BHK’s assessment of Chris just wanting to go out was right.

Spoke to mom on the phone – Bro getting a DNA test w/Shannon – Odds are good that he’s the dad, but it can’t hurt to be sure. (more sure?)

Jay, Duncan and Sean came over tonight for hot dogs and fixings – Jay and Dunc took off afterward, but Sean hung out to watch "Let the right one in" with BHK and me. I liked it more than BHK did. (I give it a 6/10 or so – BHK didn’t like the pacing, which I thought fit the story)

Final note of the evening, I love teddy grahams.

While she and Chris worked on the flower bed out front, I commenced to taking care of long overdue paperwork.

After the sun went down, Larry came over and we all had pizza and watched My Fake Fiance a made for tv chick flick. cute – MJ Hart looked pretty preggo in it, and Joey (erm Joseph) Lawrence didn’t say "Woah" once.
