So while running our errands today, I wanted one last Time Horton's Iced Coffee. Why last? Well, "the diet" officially starts tomorrow....
But anyway, I went thru the Timmies drive thru and ordered my usual "one large iced coffee" and the voice in the little box said "oh, sorry, we're out of the vanilla base....i can get you an iced cap though, if you want" Um, really not in the mood for an iced cap, so I declined. However, I was still stuck in the drive-thru line, behind 3 other cars. Boo!
We were in the middle of our errands, so we stopped home to put groceries away, potty break for the trained Miss Diana, and then back out again. Stopped at the Timmies by our house. Ordered my drink, the speakerbox said "$2.09, please drive thru" and I threw up a thumbs-up. Woo....or so I thought
Got to the window and the clerk tells me that they're cleaning the machine, so the Iced Coffee would actually be warm. But, she can give me an Iced Cap for the same price. No thank you....and I drive off.
I'm being Iced Coffee-Blocked at Tim Hortons.
Off to the third Timmies (Thank goodness I live in Canada)....I placed my order. Drove up to the window and the clerk said "$1.45" and there was a hot coffee waiting. I reminded her, I wanted an Iced Coffee ...."oh yea, I forgot to ring it up" (what?) ....but....after a moments wait, I had a nice, delicious Iced Coffee in my clutches.
I'll miss you Iced Coffee....you were yummo while I knew ye!
So, I watched the season finale of LOST last night and came to one conclusion. No spoilers here...don't worry if you haven't watched it yet!
I'm simple. I do not understand symbolism *at all*
For those of you who don't watch LOST, or for those of you who haven't had time to digest everything, I'm not going to blog about the intricacies of each detail of the episode. What I am going to blog about is how simple I am.
Ok, in simpe terms: if you tell me that my cat is orange, I will believe that my cat is orange. Yup, right there in the kitchen, one orange cat. I do not, however, see "... a symbol for survivors. He has managed to escape many calamities throughout the story. He escaped the intended drowning the captain had planned for all the cats, he lived in the ghost house without incident, he escaped capture when they tried to gather up all the cats to give them away, and he survived the hurricane, which few cats managed to do." (*From "Jacob I Have Loved" thank you Google!)
I've always been like this. I remember having discussions with my mother after watching movies and how we must have missed something important because we just do not understand symbolism. Ugh, English class, all coming back now.
Thankfully, in 2009, I have the interwebs to help me. I watched LOST last night. I was entertained. I sat on the edge of my couch at the end for the "WTF moment" and wondered how I was going to manage until the next season in 2010. I went to bed, satisfied that I had just seen the finale and understood most of it (those writers, they're tricky). Woke up this morning to read some online reviews of the episode and it's all symbolism. Yes, a lot more of it makes sense now that someone has drawn me a road-map. I'm just too simple for LOST I guess.
Oh well, I still heart Hurley! :D Yes, Hurley. The fictional character. I also heart Jorge Garcia, who plays Hurley, but I heart Hurley a bit more .....I am so simple!
Happy Mother's Day to all you Mommies out there!! This includes my friends who are Mommies to 4-legged babies too!!! :D
I had an awesome Mother's Day....went to see Star Trek!!! w00t! I <3 Zachary Quinto so very much! And, the new Capt. Kirk, Chris Pine....not too shabby either! And his dad was on CHiPs, so he can't be all that bad!!
We went to Pizza Hut after to hang out with Andrea, Matt and Mike! Finally exchange Christmas presents with Mike...Yes, Christmas 2008 presents. Only sucky part: I got Mike a calendar :( boo!
I'm on vacation this week....looking forward to just doing nothing for a week. Oh, and finishing the potty training. Diana wore her big-girl underware today and did awesome!! Dry all day! w00t!!
Can't think of any funny Diana conversations, but I'll post 'em as they come up!
So, had to post this, cuz it was funny. And, Sunday did not include a "conversations with Diana" section.
Jay was getting Diana a drink, and said "Give me five!" Diana started walking around the circle in our house....kitchen, living room, hallway, by the front door, kitchen...and around and around...while singing the following list...
give me an orange give me a penny give me a donut give me a popsicle give me a scrapbook give me a cape give me cream give me a pretend donut give me a balloon give me a marker give me a wall give me a stick give me everything, everything, everything
So, the whole "Bullet Sunday" thing was stolen from a blogger who actually blogs multiple times in a week. Me? Not so much. So, instead of being a "Bullet Sunday" ....how about just a "wow! You actually blogged again" Sunday!
I'm watching the Ellen Degeneres special "Here and Now" for the billionth time. Man, that lady is hillarious! I've loved her since the mid-80s when I caught her as part of the "Women of the Night" HBO special. Hollie and I used to quote that special TO DEATH. Sorry if we knew you then; I'm sure we annoyed you with our "Suffa Pope" line (although that was a Judy Tenuta quote!)
- Saw Wolverine today. It was pretty good! Dont' believe the haters! :D Oh, and have you seen how hot Hugh Jackman and Ryan Reynolds are? Now, put them together! There's a sandwich I'd like to be in (yea, I totally went there!)
- We got a new addition to our family this week. Our friend Suzy moved to a new place, and couldn't take her orange cat Merlin her....so, we now have a 5-year old orange cat too! Hesh, not a fan yet. Merlin, the scardiest cat I've ever met. So, this is gonna be interesting! But, he's a real sweetheart and the fattest cat ever. I think he's even bigger than my sil's jack russell! But, that could just be my mind playing tricks on me.
- I wish the scheduling at work was done differently. I'm not asking for the responsibility; I'm sure it can't be easy. But, how hard is it to give someone a day off when they're already allowed to have 2 days off a week? I needed a Sunday off for Diana's birthday party....and I'm scheduled to work 1:30-9:30. Really? And of the 6 PC's in our department....4 of them have it off? Really? Oh well....at least I work with cool people and hope to be able to swap my shift with one of them. Crikey! :D
Wow...this is a lot of writing! I should stop soon. I have to watch last week's Desperate Housewives before this week's is on!
