I expected today to be awash. Pretty much I had no plans, I wasn’t sure I wanted plans, and I was confidents that is plans actually arose I would shoot them down. And then I climbed out of my bed. Oh how quickly my resolve faded.
It began with breakfast/lunch. The British Friend wanted pancakes and we were both pretty confident that our go to pancake place would be packed. So, I pulled out the random box of Bisquick (Lord only knows in what moment of desperation that appeared in my kitchen) and I went to work pancake making. A shot time later, pancakes…fresh strawberries and syrup graces my beautiful square dishes. It was great, I mean not as great as the buttermilk pancakes, but tasty all the same.
Then it was off to E’s where the party was in full swing to finish off yesterday’s keg. It was crazy. It was amazing. I don’t think I have laughed so hard in a long time.
But then came my favorite part of the day.
[Back story: So yesterday evening I told the LP that in a new attempt to embrace my single me-ness I was going to take myself out, i.e. I find myself way too dependent and heaven help me I can’t be the third wheel, or the fifth wheel. It’s just too much to handle Thus, I said I was taking myself to the movies].
Back to present time.
There were about a million and one times during the day that I was just like, heck no an I going to the movies by myself. It seemed lame once I decided that I was doing it. Shockingly I followed though. At 7:10 pm I left what could only be describe as “Drunkfest ’09;” as the sober girl it was probably a good departure point.
At 7:30 I was happy as a clam in the theater watching UP. It was darling and wonderful and fantastic. I may have been the only person that wasn’t in a group, which was a little much in the beginning, but by the end it was totally fine. I walked out of the theater and was on the waterfront when the fireworks began and pretty much all I could think (after: ooh and ahh) was, wow I am a darn good date planner if I do say so myself. :)
Now it’s time to pack a box and then curl up with Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (less the 15 days to make it through OotP and then Half-Blood Prince before the movie comes out). Fantastic end of an evening.
