Andy and I had a sleepover last night. It was interrupted only by beagle trauma when the thunder got bad. Earlier in the evening I was rushing to take a shower to get to a meeting, and I thought Lucy might feel better if she was in the bathroom with me during the storm. I guess the bathroom itself wasn't good enough. She climbed right on into the shower with me and licked my ankles the whole time. She's really got some issues with thunder.
We popped out of bed at the crack of noon today to get down to Liberty Hall to see "The March of the Penguins". It was very good. It was recommended to me by my dear friend Heather Mac, who did a perfect imitation of a cold and unhappy penguin which I will now request her to do for me everytime I see her.
I loved the lady penguins who got into it with each other over those damn males. They were bitch-slapping each other with their little wings and fat bellies. Why can't there be penguin goddesses who just wish each other the best and try not to hurt each other's feelings? Oh yeah, survival and all that shit.
Anyway, I highly recommend this movie... perfect for seeing on a hot summer day, as it is a very very very cold movie.
I think I might meander out in the rain to Sunrise garden center and get a few starter plants to fill up all the empty clay pots laying around my house since I've let everything die in the past few months. Perhaps since I've turned over so many other new leaves, I can practice actually watering plants once in a while.
A friend of my mom has been doing long distance Reiki healing on me, and I swear, I don't know how it works but it sure does seem to help things. I am having minimal pain this weekend and no vomiting, and feeling pretty darn good! Hopefully the rest of the weekend will be peaceful and happy.
