Today’s subject line comes from a short but sweet spam email soliciting me to start a relationship with a Russian woman. How will I ever break it to Galina that I am not the groovy man she’s seeking?

I wasn’t on Livejournal much Wednesday and wasn’t on at all on Thursday so I have a lot of journal reading to catch up on, which is really nice. It’s been a while since I’ve had to hit the previous button on my friends list in order to catch up on two days. Before I get to that I figured I’d post a short update myself. Nothing of real interest happened on Wednesday except John and I went to a local diner that was awful which was a disappointing because I had heard it was good...although, in retrospect, the guy who told me it was good was a man of questionable tastes who thinks Swiss Chalet is fine dining. Nothing against Swiss Chalet of course but I always found it funny that this guy talked about a chain restaurant like it was the height of dining experiences. Anyway, suffice to say the diner was terrible. John’s meal came with a side of Fly (They remade it and comp’d him 50% for that) and my side dish had clearly been sitting around for while and tasted old. No, I didn’t complain because it took a while for John’s dish to be remade and the main part of my dish was fine and very filling. Enough bitching about Wednesday though, let’s move on to Thursday which was the much better day.

First off, I decided to take Thursday off two reasons. One, I had a dentist appointment, always a source of anxiety. Two, I’ve been itching to take a day off to be on my own. So I decided to take Thursday off completely as a way of making the dentist trip less terrible. Why would a trip to dentist be terrible? I feel like most people already know why but to spell it out, I have a huge fear of going to the dentist. I've had it ever since I was a kid and I know it’s completely irrational but that doesn’t change the fact that whenever I get in a dentist chair and someone starts poking at my teeth I’m highly tempted to bolt and run. To date, I’ve never actually ran from the dentist and I consider that a personal success.

Yesterday was actually good though thanks to the dental hygienist who talked a lot but in a way that kept me entertained and distracted from the sound of metal scraping my teeth. I didn’t have any cavities and I learned that, barring abnormal circumstances, I’ll never have to get my wisdom teeth removed because they’re small and not going to come out. The exact words when I asked? “Oh you’ve got cute little wisdom teeth. They’re not big enough to come out”. Never heard of wisdom teeth being described as cute but I’ll take it! I was a very happy camper when leaving the dentist yesterday. I spent the rest of my day off cleaning and that night my friends, John, and I all got free tickets to go to Yuk Yuks comedy club. The comedians we got to see are Shaun Burton, Chris Pierce, and Paul Haywood. All locals and all pretty funny but Chris Pierce was the best. It was his first show as a professional and he did a fantastic job. All in all, it was groovy night.

My guy made coffee.
I use salt and not sugar.
Typical Monday.

So far Monday’s been off to a slightly rough but amusing start. When I get home I’ll have to remember to label the container we have the salt in. In other news it’s been a really busy weekend. Here’s a run down in bullet form for your viewing pleasure:

  • Friday night – John & I went to the opening for the exhibit Remembering the Fallen Soldiers of Gallipoli with Poppies which I posted pictures of here. It was a good crowd and the caterer had provided some Turkish food in honour of the artist so that was fun to try. My favourite thing was this spread made out of beets.

  • Friday night continued – After the exhibit we headed over to my Department Head’s (aka boss’) house for a going away party for Cataloguing division Department head who’s moving all the way across the country. I was worried that the party would be awkward because even though my Department Head and the Cataloguing Department Head are both super awesome people there were going to be people there that I don’t work closely with and therefore don’t know very well. Thankfully it wasn’t too awkward at all and a few people I do know well and can talk to easily came to the party. John also discovered this gem in my boss’ CD collection Pictures )

  • Saturday – I had to get up early to sell at a craft fair in Witless Bay, a medium size town an hour or so outside of St. John’s (where I live). The craft fair was pretty dead but I made back my money and a bit extra, plus got to hang out with [ profile] lady_green_bat all day so it was good in my books. Here’s a few pictures of what I made to sell -> More pictures! )

  • Saturday night - [ profile] lady_green_bat gave me & John free tickets to attend Yuk Yuks and we had a really good time. The main act was Roy Daye and he was hilarious! I would absolutely go see him again. The MC, Jason Card, was also really good and even when the mic died he kept going, entertaining while the staff fixed it. There were two other comedian’s who also did a fair/good job but sadly their names escape me at the moment.

  • Sunday – Decided to be somewhat lazy. I just spent the morning reading, watching the Birdcage, and doing a little light cleaning. Afterward, John and I went for a walk about, grabbed an ice cream, and relaxed for the evening watching Bones then Defiance. OMG Defiance! Does anyone else watch that show? And see episode 8? Holy crap! I you don’t watch Defiance but like Sci-Fi TV shows with aliens & humans co-existing you should check it out.
