This past weekend was great too. It was Bobby's birthday, so lots of fun associated with that. Thanks to those who sent him birthday wishes; he's read them all and says he will reply, but he's a busy man, so it might take a few days. ;)
The most notable fact of Bobby's birthday is that I ate more food than should reasonably fit inside of a human being of my size. And I made Mexican chocolate sorbet, so I'm guaranteed a sugar high for the rest of the week.
Apparently, summer is on its way too. The temperatures were just above freezing to the mid-60s this weekend, but I have the first wasp of the season stuck in my office. He was just buzzing around, swooping over my head (making me duck), and showing a great interest in the fluorescent lights. I don't mind him and have had wasps in my office for days at a time before...but if he flies out of my office and in sight of Johnny the Boss, he will likely be splattered. (Johnny is afraid of "bees" of any kind. My first summer working here, Johnny had a sizeable wasp-nest outside his window. I said, "Pity it's not outside mine. I'm not afraid of them, and I think it'd be cool to watch them during the day." Anyway, Johnny waged war on the nest using everything from insect spray to the canned air I had to clean my keyboard. I offered to put on a homemade bee-suit and take care of it for him, but he declined, and it was back to bug spray and canned air.)
Well, it's off to lunch now, then onto something productive: beta, Antithesis Common, RPG, or my own writing...but it feels so good to be productive and not worried again!
On a completely annoying note, my hip hurts again. It must be something in my skating solo because it only hurts on Mondays, after I practice my solo. The camel-sit spin perhaps? My beloved?? *weeps* Oh, well, I'm doing it anyway, pain or not. *evil cackle* Two weeks after the show, I'll be in Puerto Rico, letting it heal in the Caribbean sun.
