It's Hot.

It's hot. It is blinking, freaking hot out right now.

It is approximately a million degrees right now. Everything is hot. I am hot. It has gone past swooby and swass to simply sw-an.

Fortunately, my basement, notorious for freezing in the fall, winter, spring, and early summer, has become nicely temperate. I'm leaving all my windows open and the breezes have warmed up my little cave to the point where I don't need to wear a sweater. Yay!

I've been spending quite a bit of time in my basement.

I've been spending time with my friends, and working on wedding stuff. And going to see movies.

I've seen Pirates of the Carribean 2, and Superman Returns.

Both are very good. I recommend them, especially going to the matinee. It's blinking hot outside, and cool on the inside, and the theatres are pretty empty.

Whistle Twice and I went yesterday to see Superman Returns, we both liked it. The movie I mean, we didn't like paying $3.50 for crappy fake lemonade or $4 for a bag of smarties.

Next time we're bringing our own snacks. Oh yeah, the joy of carrying a big purse. It's the only way to go to the movies.

Highlights for this Slackerly Weekend
1) Saw Pirates 2. This was a super good movie. The characters have become more complex and interesting, especially Norrington and Elizabeth. The only downside was that Knitter told me that Keira Knightley's accent in the movie is her actual accent. This means that it won't get better. It won't change. There will be three movies of listening to her dippy accent.
2) Went to the Library and took out a large group of CD's. This means fun music to wake up and listen to, and also start collecting music for the wedding reception. This is only somewhat productive, because I sincerely doubt that Rev. Horton Heat will be dinner music.
3) Spent time with Prince Charming. It's amazing how busy two people can get when they are getting married/working/etc. and end up not having anytime to see each other.
4) Bought a very nice mattress. It is a pocket coil, and should be very nice to sleep on. It will be a definite change, since my mattress is both hard and uncomfortable. Once I'm able to sleep on it, I will definitely let everyone know how it goes.
5) Had breakfast with my dad, Polar Bear. He's gone up north to work, following the 10 in/4 out schedule. He's liking the work and so it was nice to see him. We do breakfast together Saturday mornings.
And now, back to other things...
Today was pretty productive.

I'm actually meaning that. It is quite shocking. After a rather slackerly weekend, it was time to get to work.

Of course this automatically means that tomorrow something horrendous will show up and derail absolutely everything, but one can only hope that this derailment won't be too bad.

Prince Charming and I spent several hours today working on The Master List.

Not only was that time utterly enthralling, but it was also very fun. I will admit to being somewhat relieved because now it means that there is an end in sight. It may be a long way off, but it is in sight.

The wind is blowing and a thunderstorm is here. Except for the fact that my head hurts, I love this weather. The wind never smells as sweet as when it is raining and thundering.

A Bit of an Update

So, for those of you just tuning in, I've been away.

Work got busy, wedding stuff went insane, and I stopped posting.

However, now I'm back.

I made the huge mistake of going to a completely unreliable "professional" dressmaker. After being talked down to, bullied and repeatedly "misunderstood," I called in the big guns and my problem was fixed.

Well, it is as fixed as it can be until I see it with the alterations done.

I will be overjoyed to tell that sad tale later. After I'm done catching up on all the stuff that got left behind because I was too busy trying to track down my dressmaker.

I am back. I missed posting. I missed reading up on what other people are doing. I also missed the peace of not having to deal with the dressmaker on an almost daily basis.

And yes, I will be calling the Better Business Bureau as soon as my (perfect, and it will be perfect) dress is in my hot little hands.

In happier news, I've got an order of fancy knitting needles and much yarn coming in. It should be great. Anytime I get stressed, I just say three things to myself:

1) It will be over soon.
2) There is no way that the dressmaker is making any money on my dress. (Petty? I think not. If I'm not allowed charge her for my wasted time, she's not allowed to make a profit on my dress)
3) Best of all, I have new fancy needles coming! Yay! And yarn.

Plus, I get to bother Gamer every day and ask him where my package is. He likes it when I do that. Alot.
