I met Suzanne for lunch. It was book club lunch, but when only two people attend, it's hardly that.
We had a nice lunch though; Suzanne is one of my favorite people in my life. I always appreciate our time together.
I loved her story about Zachary's "June Birthday Party" at school. Each month there is a birthday party day for all the kids celebrating birthdays that month. Zachary will be 8 this month, and is finishing his last week of 2nd grade.
Paraphrased conversation at about 6:35AM, with the bus coming for Zachary at around 7:00AM:
|Suzanne: Well, Zachary, it's your last week of second grade. Are you excited about it?|
Zachary: Yes, and about birthday day today.
Suzanne: Birthday day?
Zachary: Yes, it's June birthday day today.
Suzanne: Ooooh, [voice pitch rising] is mommy supposed to be sending some goodies in with you?
Zachary: Yes, mommy. It was on the paper.
Suzanne ruffles through paper stacks around the kitchen to find the paper suggesting perhaps, one or two dozen cupcakes, or something else to share. In 20 minutes?
She came up with the ingenious idea of popping four big bags of popcorn, and distributing them into 20 or so small plastic bags to send with him.
I love the image of her holding the freshly popped bowls in front of the window to cool off in order not to melt the plastic bags as she poured it in them.
I met Steve (who I met at Costello's with Joe over Memorial Day Weekend) at a bar called Mac's Tavern in the little shopping area next to The Galaxy Theater in Cary for a couple of drinks. It was a very "straight" place.
We saw the 7:05 showing of L'Enfant, which we were both disappointed in. Too much non-action, and to me, too much moping by the male lead. I usually like "morose" films, but this one just didn't work for me.
One thing, however, I would love to have had a dollar for every time Bruno said, "Sonia" during this movie.
Movie Synopsis: Bruno and Sonia, a young couple living off her benefit and the thefts committed by his gang, have a new source of money: their newborn son.
After the show, we met at Helios for a cup of coffee, before I left for scareyoke at Flex at just after 10:00.
Joe and Joey weren't out tonight, so it was just Kevin (av8rdude) and me.
It was a guy's birthday there tonight, and he had on a ball cap with these words embroidered over the visor: "It's My Birthday. Give me a Blow Job." Neither Kevin nor I obliged.
Nothing "demonic" happened today despite the date.
