Summary: A movie date gone awry.

First RPF of the month, probably not the last.Collapse )
I woke up dreaming about my father. I went into the living room and he was lying on my couch. I asked if he was really there (my father died in 2002) and he said he was. That's when I woke up.

I wonder if I'm seeking out my father to be at home taking care of me since hubby isn't.


There's a bar on the corner of Church and Market that's been called The Transfer as long as I can remember. Basically a tacky, dive-bar for pick-ups, from what I could ever tell. Suddenly it's been done up all froofy-ritzy and there was a big crowd outside on Saturday night. The sign says BOC, which stands for Bar On Church.


Botanica Yoruba on Valencia is gone, apparently for quite some time. Hubby knew, but I had no idea. Seeing the empty store-front on Valencia on Saturday was quite a shock.


I finally finished a book. Reading one, not writing one. I've been trying to get through Blink by Malcolm Gladwell forever and I finally started again just around Pesach and finished it about two weeks ago. Since my reading time is essentially subsumed by magazines and fanfic, this deserves some kind of notice.

Equipped with headphones and a splitter, we're watching a lot of TV at the nursing facility, and with a limited number of channels, I've had to make compromises I never would. I'm watching L&O CI, which I hate, although NOT SVU which I can't stomach at all. (We watched the new episode last night. No spoilers, but I was totally screaming at the set, as I often do during CI-"Hold tight! Don't give it up!" I desperately want some murderer NOT to giving in to the bullying and psychological manipulation.)

USA tends to have a lot of House on, which is awesome, especially when they show the earlier seasons. (Oh my beloved The Mistake and Deception.) However, last night ODOR came on and I told hubby, I'm sorry. I cannot watch this! (We ended up watching McLaughlin Group instead.)


Speaking of things I can't watch. FUCK YOU RTD! BBCA is rerunning all the Torchwoods, presumably in preparation for the new serise, but I can't watch it. Not even the good stuff. Not the gun scene. Not CJH. NOTHING. Because every moment YOU KNOW WHO is on the scream is painful and nauseating to me, knowing the depths of character assassination that lie before us in the name of the so-called canon slash relationship.

Do you have any idea how much that sucks? I can't watch Captain Jack on TW AT ALL because RTD gave in to the clamouring hordes and his own Mary Sue fetish. I hate RTD like I hated David Lynch after the last episode of Twin Peaks. And that my friends is a lot of hate.

What Scent Candle Should You Light Meme

Ganked from tourmaline1973

I don't even know how to respond to this one.

You Should Light a Cinnamon Candle
You are affectionate yet mischievous. You have a warm, welcoming spirit - but you also like to spice things up.
You love hosting parties and events at your home. You love to live it up with your friends.

You're the type of person who is open hearted and accepting... as long as someone is willing to deal with your quirks.
You are both comforting and stimulating. You thrive in both familiar and exotic environments.


You can't win!

Admin calls to see if I can change client to Virgin America flight tomorrow at 530PM instead of Weds at 730AM. I ask if I should do it whatever the cost. She says to find out how much. Keep in mind the guy is flying First Class anyway, and hold times for Virgin are nearly 10 minutes. I call, and it's available and it's only $215.00 more. The hotel he's staying at is $395.00 per night. I figure he wants to come home and the difference in fare is less than another night at the hotel. I try calling the admin, and she's not answering. I leave a message saying I'm going ahead.

I go ahead. She calls and I tell her I've gone ahead, explaining my rationale. She says ok. Calls back 2 minutes later. He said to hold off.

Now I have to spend another ten minutes waiting to get through to Virgin American, change it back and hope it's not going to cost even more to get the space back.

I really, really hate this job.

This is all happening at the end of the day, so I'm not getting out of here to spend time with hubby up at the nursing facility.

Surgery is tomorrow at 3:00PM PST

Same surgeon as last time, but this time they're going to do in at Kaiser San Francisco instead of schlepping him over to Oakland. This is a blessing because as much of a pain as getting up to Lawton is, it still beats taking Bart across the Bay after work and then trying to get a taxi cab in downtown Oakland at 11PM. That was not fun at all.

I haven't seen House yet due to the reception situation on the TV in hubby's room. I'm going to take a night off tomorrow because as he pointed out, after surgery, he'll be pretty out of it anyway. I'd like to try and watch the episode with a less stressed out, more open mind. (No comments from the peanut gallery.) So if anyone's got their DVR or download and is going to watch it tomorrow around 7PM PST, and has gmail...let me know so we can hook up for a 2nd day House party.

Give it up for Big Frank, my KJ buddy from the Mint. He heard about the accident from Sebastian and went up to visit hubby today. Of course, with Virgin gone...he has time on his hands anyway, but it was still a nice thing to do.

Prompt #124

You are walking through streets that mean nothing to you
You believe you're above it and I don't really blame you
