dianec42: Joshua tree against a blue sky (Snooch Sing)
We saw RED which was very silly. Helen Mirren with a machine gun, how can you go wrong?

I have finally succeeded in my quest for good crab cakes despite being on the wrong coast. (Difficulty: Special (not on the regular menu) at a restaurant where we can't afford to eat super often.)

We watched both quali and the grand prix. Yay, Sebastian Vettel (and not *just* because he's not Fernando Alonso). I love a happy ending.

I even seem to be on top of all the chores, including laundry, dishes, and shopping. We also had eye appointments yesterday & have both ordered new glasses. Yes, mine will be purple.

Holy ...

F1 teams drop breakaway bombshell

Formula 1 has been thrown into chaos after eight of its major teams said they are now planning to set up a rival championship for the 2010 season. ...

Yesterday I got up far too early to go to dragon boat practice, the first of the season. Yay, we succeeded in having a practice. We had enough people to move a small boat, and we even ran into our ex-coach and sweet-talked her into coming out and coaching us. (Which was good, because we didn't actually have a plan for what we were going to do once we got on the boat.) Our fearless captain remembered the big folder o waivers, and is certified to steer, without which it would have been a really short practice. So yay, I didn't even have to kill anybody.

I'm still worried and think we should be doing more recruiting. If we're having this much trouble rounding up 10 people to have practice, it's going to be an utter joy trying to round up 20 so we can have a race. :P

Meanwhile, my darling husband had been trying in vain to start the crappy old lawn mower that came with the house. So once I got home & had lunch, we went shopping. We came home from Lowes with a lawn mower, a new leaf blower/sucker, and a weed whacker. Much yard work ensued (as well as laundry and dishwashing).

We tried valiantly to stay awake through the Malaysian Grand Prix. I think [livejournal.com profile] stuartc even succeeded. I definitely dozed off a few times. Apparently no one ran into Kubica's car this time, and he came in second after Raikonnen. Huzzah!

Today we slept in. More yard work and washing of things happened today. [livejournal.com profile] stuartc cleaned up the garage a bit, and we took down the Christmas lights.

Zoot (a.k.a. Tiny Kitten) has been in some sort of snit the past couple of days. She's currently attacking the inside of the couch directly underneath me. We dragged her out from under the bed this morning to verify that she's still breathing, not injured, and seems physically okay; but she's been skulking among several hidey-holes all weekend and not eating or drinking much. Crazy cat. Hopefully she'll get over it. Meanwhile Princess has been enjoying the relative peace and quiet.

Morning!

Still in Japan. On internet for 5 more minutes. Spending the next day clutching my head like a stunned monkey. Raikonnen?! Um, cool?

More later, yen running out. (-:
