Looks like a great day

Woke up this morning at 7:00. Thank God. The past few days I've been wide awake at 4:30 and have had to crawl back in bed for about an hour for a nap. I hate walking around tired and I'm not a big fan of naps. Then when stepped outside to grab the paper I was greeted with a wonderful surprise -- it was cool! There was a nice little breeze and the temp was hovering around 68 which perfect front porch weather. So I grab my coffee and the paper and that's where I've been. Friends of mine were pushing their daughter around in the stroller and stopped by for a nice 10 minute visit. Just long enough for a few laughs and smile but short enough so as not to interrupt my "me time". So as I'm sitting there I notice the Hibiscus is looking a little better. Perhaps all those toxic chemicals and threats to put it in the waste bin are working. The spider mites are officially dead. Only one leaf dropped over night and there are a bunch of new buds. Yeah!

Yesterday T & I went to see The Exorcism of Emily Rose. We went expecting spinning heads and floating beds but instead got a well written & acted supernatural drama with some good courtroom action. There were a few well planned scares but the film is primarily about a court case. I rate it a strong "B" and suggest going to see it. Then it was back home for a home made pizza and turning in early. A nice day overall.

Last night as I devoured the pizza at my computer I found myself engrossed with the romance and drama of two new blogs I found. Greg and his boyfriend Gregg have been together about a year and their blogs chronicle their relationship in a funny, biting, and sweet way. Thinking back to when T & I met I can see a lot of similarities in the relationship during the "newlywed phase". These two guys are obviously and painfully in love with each other and despite a 17 year age difference I see them making it to the finish line. I sure hope so for their sake. I spent several hours going back and forth between their respective blogs reading both sides of their relationship and found the once common denominator -- they both really like to have a good time and they are madly in love. It was like reading Young & The Restless meets Queer As Folk. I send them my best wishes for a happy future together and hope they don't ever give up on love or each other.

This is my weekend to work and work I will. I have back to back design appointments all day today. Thank God I'm working with my good friend A. A's a beautiful, funny, and hard working girl who is a pleasure to spend 8 hours in an office with. Add to this she doesn't have a new born attached to her breast. Jeeze what a nightmare that was. Anyway, I really like all of the people I'm working with today as they are relaxed, realistic, and fun. It should be a quick paced day and 5:00 should roll up before I know it.

This is also a football weekend so I've got to dig up something with some team colors to wear and pretend that I really give a big shit about "the big game". Don't get me wrong I enjoy college football but I'm not obsessed with it like so many in this city are. None the less around here you either support the team gung-ho or people think somethings wrong with you. It's funny actually. Last season on games days A & I worked together we'd keep checking the web for updates about the game and offer comments about certain players or plays so we'd sound educated on the game. LOL! And as soon it was just the two of us in an empty office we'd laugh about how we had no clue what we were talking about. Hey -- we'd make damn good politicians don't ya think?

I'm still working on a couple of posts I hope to upload later. An entertainment review from a Pookie perspective and the story of meeting my T. One day I may get around to finishing them....

Pook, I have no choice it seams, when I read your stuff I laugh or I think and that fucks up my depression. Thanks.

I love Hibiscus. They remind me of visiting my grandparent's house as a child. We lived in New York City and would go visit them in Sarasota, FL. The first thing I would do when I got to their house was run outside to the Hibiscus bush and take a flower and suck the nectar out of it and then I knew I was in Florida. I'll be in Sarasota on Tuesday, first stop on my way to Brazil. I think I'll suck some hibiscus nectar.

Dlak - "Tag" is when someone requests that you complete one of the many questionaires going about in Blog World.

See my post on 9/5 where I "tagged" you. Also tag is a game where hot, shirtless college boys are chased about by a middle age gay men and horny old women...lmao... Kidding.

I've been spraying our hibiscus for aphids. I noticed none of the blooms were opening and looked a little closer. I'm using insectacidal soap and it's doing the trick. We now have blooms back.

You must live ion the northern part of the state to get 60's. It was cool over the weekend but nothing like that.
