We went for a random drive today, which is probably the nicest thing about having access to a car. I used to go on drives with my mom when I was a kid, where the two of us would just start driving without a destination in mind and find interesting places and things. It’s a lot of fun, I’ve missed doing it in the time I’ve been without a car. We picked up a book from the Cobalt Book Shop called Discovering Wild Temiskaming – it’s got a bunch of trails and daytrips by canoe in the area that neither Adam nor I have been to. We’re going to have fun exploring all sorts of strange places, with the book and without, over the summer.

It was finally a nice, sunny, bright, warm day today. Mutt the World Destroyer (the groundhog that lives under the garage) had babies, and they were out basking in the back yard this afternoon.

I think I’ve decided on what to do with my roll of black and white film. Now I just need the proper day for it, and free use of the car for that day. Unless a better idea comes up between now and then, I’m basically decided. Not that anyone here made suggestions when I asked. Remind me not to bother asking things here from now on. I’ll just stick with asking at the I have a Secret forum, since it’s better designed for such things.

It occurs to me that somewhere within the time between the beginning of May and the end of June will mark two years of Adam and I being together. I’m pretty sure this is relevant, since there’s still nothing wrong and no signs of things falling apart at all. Imagine that. I’m wondering if we should close our eyes and randomly pick a day to mark the occasion, since we don’t know what day we officially got together. I don’t know… maybe it’s not a big deal. Hasn’t been up until now, at least.

Jordy blew up this inflatable palm tree in the basement. Dayle is absolutely petrified of it. It’s more entertaining to watch than TV.

    Actually, I *DID* make a suggestion on what to do with the film. Remember the note I left on that entry? Heh? It was in there. However, to save space, I encoded it using the same code used in the book of Ezekiel to hide the message that aliens are coming to eat your brain. Yeah… uh-huh…

    /me nods manically.

      That was in Ezekiel? I could’ve sworn it was part of revelations…. Oh no, the brain-eating must’ve already begun. I’m done for!

        Well, actually it was BOTH. You see, the aliens figured that brains might have EVOLVED BACK into the species by this point, and so they should come around for another harvest. That’s why the Fundamentalists and the Right-wingers try to hush that part up: they don’t like the idea of Biblical proof of evolution. 😛

    Hi, you don’t know me, I stuck you on my friends list after talking to you in a chat…I’m Rebecca.

    I was just thinking, I’ve heard in some cultures (or maybe it was fictional book, I really have no idea) that when a child has a birthday, they don’t celebrate it for just one day, but for the entire month, or moon cycle, or however they measure time. I always thought it was kinda cool to get counted special for that long.

    Maybe you and Adam don’t have to pick a day. Just have the entire month of June be your anniversary. Gives you more flixibility when planning stuff, anyway.

    Happy Anniverary! I will now go back to lurking.

      Not sure if that’s really effective with black & white film. I’m hoping to catch them in colour, actually. 🙂

    How is it?

    How is it that the psychokitten (one of the two, anyway) ceased his blind attack on whatever caught his attention long enough that he could be petrified of it. I still beleive the claw marks in my back PROVE music does not necessarily soothe the savage beast…

    Do you miss the trolleys?

    A familiar stranger…

      Re: How is it?

      Hey you 😉

      Dayle is still a bit of an idiot. He only fears that which is the most irrational. The palm tree didn’t even move, it was just sitting there across the room from him and he wouldn’t go anywhere near it. Freak cat.

      I always miss the trolleys.
