I just got back from getting my roots done, which interfered with my usual going-to-the-movies-with-Ned thing, but you'll be relieved to know we're going to a movie today anyway. I don't know what we're going to see: we have a depressing deep movie we're considering, and then a depressing deep movie. I will let you know.
I had a fine weekend so far, starting with Ned cooking for me, and what is a shame is there weren't enough green beans. After we ate this, we went out to eat. I am not making that up. We went to the hotel restaurant I like so much, where we had our first date, and got a tomato plate and a little pan of roasted almonds. We were both still totally hungry after our mound of green beans.
I also got Ned some strawberries, because a farmer came to work and sold us all a bill of goods, and also many delicious strawberries off the back of his truck. I ate so many I felt ill, and what I like about me is my ability to know when to say when.
They had all kinds of parts missing; one had half an antler, and the other had no tail. It was, like, the most depressing collection of deer statues, ever. And that's saying a lot because deer statues are kind of sad in general.
At the picnic, we sat with Ned's next-door neighbor, who also happens to work with me. He and his wife are from another country, and I am being purposely vague in case they're all, DON'T BLOG ABOUT US. Anyway, they've lived all over the place and are interesting people, and also incredibly good-looking, which is what I require in a friend. We made plans to all go out to dinner at this African restaurant we've all wanted to try. They have kids, so they said, "We'll get a sitter. What night do you want to go?"
Ned was all, "Don't worry about us! Any night! Any night is fine! We've got nothin'! We'll just pick up the phone when you call and get right up and go! That's us! Free as birds! No obligations here!"
Could he have driven the point home more that we don't have kids and they do? Nope! Nothing to tie us down! Not us! CHILD-FREE! That's us! Able to take off at a moment's notice! Yep! We.be.free.
You would have thought I'd suggested we head to the premie ward and scalp day-old infants. "WE CAN'T DO THAT!" said Ned, who is really too healthy for his own damn good.
We got frozen yogurt instead, and I really don't see how cake-batter-flavored yogurt can be that much better for you, but there you go. Also, if Ima hang around healthy Ned, why am I not a size two yet?
Pay no attention to the cake batter yogurt.
So, I guess that's all I have to tell you, except that I inexplicably took pictures of all Ned's shoes last night and now I guess Ima have to blog about them since they're sitting there in my Photos file. Also, I KNOW I have to blog about the stuff PJ asked me the day I asked you guys what to blog about. I will do so tomorrow! I promise! I also have to tell you about my brilliant theory about how the people of Brazil are trying to ruin us.
I am full of deep thoughts. And green beans.
Hope your weekend was snappy. Off to see a deep film.
June. The kind of person who says "film" instead of "movie."
