I swear that today is going to be the last day of running from dawn to dark for awhile. Really. No. REALLY.
Believe it or not, Dar and I ended up going to Mobile yet again, yesterday. She was even the one to suggest it! Way to pour on the comment guilt, ya'll! Very effective. *nods* Will have to make a note of that.
Unfortunately, it wasn't really a pleasure trip, and as I was feeling rather ornery, was prolly not overly pleasant for her, either. I believe she knows now why I use cruise control. We actually were on a mission to the airport so I could take care of some business for the Innocent Bystander. I'm not totally convinced that the *eyes narrow, trying to think of a diplomatic word*
cheesedick fine young gentleman who didn't do a damn thing but stand there and stare at the computer blankly helped me actually did what needed to be done, but we will find out on the 28th. If I get a desperate call from the IB when he gets to Lagos wanting to know why his ticket is not paid for, I am going to hunt that mofo down and show him what a fatal error really is have to write a letter to his supervisor asking them to reprimand him for telling me that they only needed to SEE my credit card, not actually DO anything with it.
Anyway, like I said, we are hitting the ground running again today. What are we up to? Well, I can't really give you any details as far as the morning goes, but I can say that a mall will be involved. I can also tell you that I have not promised anyone that I will maintain any set distance from shoe displays, and that there will be some serious coffee drinking before any purpose is accomplished, because it is an ungodly hour to have to leave the house, and the birds and this post (awww...you know ya'll are a priority) leave me no time to sit around with a cuppa this morning. Jeeze. The way I'm grousing about this, you'd be hard pressed to guess that this was all my idea, eh?
There is only one plan for this afternoon and evening, and that is HOCKEY. Hockey, hockey, and then more HOCKEY. At 4pm, there is an exhibition game scheduled between former (mostly Seawolves) ECHL players versus former NHL players. It ought to be an interesting game, as we've not seen most of these players since before Katrina, and one of the members of 'our' team is our current team's head coach. Hopefully they've not all gone to seed and no one will get hurt.
Directly following that game we have another game against the Gwinnett Gladiators, so we will basically be at the coliseum from 4pm til 10pm. I am planning on sleeping in tomorrow, then spending the day at the house with El Juevo for a Slapshot marathon whilst I cook and clean and bake him a pie. I'm sure I'll manage to sneak in a post somewhere along the line. And it may just answer the mystery of just what I'm up to this morning. Guess you'll have to come back to see!
