Left the auditions and went to the movie theater in D'Iberville. We got there just late enough to miss the middle matinee and had about an hour and a half until anything started. Alex and I have seen so many movies lately that we were hard pressed to come to a decision on anything we hadn't seen or at least wouldn't mind seeing again with Dar, so we decided to go eat some chips and salsa at Salsarita's and talk it over. Decided that we would forgo the movie (I knew that would not fly with Alex as we had already decided what we wanted to see, but we were trying to celebrate Dar's birthday that got pushed back because of the stormlette). We settled on going over to Crossroads to fart around in Acadamy, Petsmart and Circuit City. When we finished, it was pretty close to dinnertime, but none of us was hungry so we just went back to Dar's. I feel bad because we really didn't do anything special, and she is such a giving person. When we were on our way out for the morning, after I'd given her a card and a book I'd picked up for her, she handed me a bag and said it was just something little. It was a box of Hawaiian Breadmix and a Naked Papers T-shirt and bumper sticker! She really does spoil me.
After we took her home, we headed back toward the house, but decided to stop and visit the puppies at Petland on the way. I think we both fell for this precious little French Bulldog that we took into one of their little play areas. Just out of curiosity I asked how much it was. The girl said she had to go find out. When she came back, her reply was a matter of fact "Nineteen hundred dollars". I almost shit myself. I asked how much the little Yorkies they have are and she said they start at twelve hundred. It took Alex reminding me that I spent fifteen hundred on Nemo ten years ago before I made the pet store=exorbitant prices (all that overhead, dontcha know). Alex is dying for a dog, though. He still misses Sandy, and he's here by himself all the time. However, he is now in school and won't be here during the week, and Johnny and I have trips planned, so it will be awhile before we can take on the responsibility, and that is only if Johnny can be cracked. *snort* We finished up there and by that time it was back to actual movie time, and since we WERE right there, decided "why not?" We watched "Hamlet 2" which was a riot.
Anyway, it is now after eleven and I am tired. This damn air conditioner blows straight down on me and just about freezes the parts of me that are exposed, but as soon as the thermostat cuts it off, I start getting hot. Back and forth all night. I guess it is time for me to go home-the house honeymoon is over. Nemo had a pluckfest while we were gone today and blew all of his feathers all over the kitchen flapping when I let him out when we got back, so that will be the first thing I have to deal with when I get up. If the next storm forces us to evacuate again soon, I will make sure to dig out Nemo's spare big cage and finger out a mo' betterer place for them to sit than in the kitchen. I just can't deal with the feathers tonight. Bless his heart.
