I had a parakeet once. I hated that thing. I was glad when it died.

We watched Frankie and Johnny last night, which I had not seen in years and D had never seen. I was really surprised he thought it merely ok. However, it turns out his big beef was it that Al Pacino's character annoyed the shit out of him. This amused me because it suddenly made me remember that when I first saw the film years and years ago I think he irritated me, too. I don't know if I'm just older now or just used to the character. But I think it's a really cute movie. Nicely realistic. I also pointed out to D that wasn't he glad I make him watch things like Frankie and Johnny rather than How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days (or what have you). There aren't too many gooey movies I really go for. (Yes, I'm sure there are enough we could sit here and mock me all day long). Ok, I like Only You. But that has Marisa Tomei and Robert Downey, Jr. and who can resist their powers?

Anyhoo. I should also mention I have the handiest husband ever. This past weekend he replaced both ballasts in the kitchen (the whole things!) AND had to repair the lawn mower AND fixed the drip in the sink. All in one day. These may have all been very simple tasks, I'll never know. I just know I would hardly venture to attempt them myself. Obviously owning a home as a single lady would be terrifying for me, which is kind of a bitch to realize.

Two or three more days of work (if someone needs me to pick up their shift then three) and then I am fucking free for seven straight days. I'll be picking up the fabulous Drew from the airport Friday afternoon. I think we'll hit El Arroyo (our new favorite Tex Mex joint we'll abuse until it cries) and possibly have an evening at the Pocket Sandwich Theatre? Sadly, it's not a popcorn-tosser this go-round, those tend to be the late summer show. But it's still tre Dallas.

I guess a nice way to see Dallas right off would be hitting Reunion Tower for a [$20] drink around evening-time. (That's the ball building in the middle there. I shot a wedding there once. Meh).

I really need to do a little research to find out the hip gay sites for DFW. Been a long, long time.

(Where the hell am I on these days?)

Where did you find that picture of me and Richard??

Ellen Aim said...

You wish. I know for a fact you weren't there as this was my pre-operative bash and I'm the blue one.

Al said...

Al Pacino annoys the shit out of me in most things.

I love Robert Downey Jr., He can play anything!

Ellen Aim said...

Al: Al basher! I don't seek him out, but I generally like him.

Blanco: Not unlike Al's entry about the lass dropping trou in the middle of the street to wolf-whistles and photo-taking.

Just a bad sense of timing, I must have.

SkyD: Right on. I will watch nearly anything he's in, just on the knowledge it'll be interesting if only for the performance..
