Ah, Sunday afternoon, sunny and cold. Sunny, but cold. Cold, but at least it's sunny, for now.
I tend to sleep too much on weekends lately, trying out the part time hibernation idea. It's not good. However, I did get out to run errands yesterday, and also milled around the local mall for a bit. There was no urgent reason for going there, other than that I was out of the house and on a roll.
It was a very crowded place, let me tell you. Perhaps everyone was out of bed and on a roll...I saw one tall, skinny, teenaged boy wearing a tee shirt with the words FREE HUGS in very large lettering, and wondered what might have happened if I were an obnoxious extrovert who enjoyed embarrassing boys. Or, is this a movement? Perhaps this is The New Thing in public places. Or just a style, perhaps a sarcastic one. I don't know.
I also heard someone call my name, and was surprised to meet up with a couple women I'd worked with a very long time ago (at least fifteen years), and that they actually remembered stuff about me. This was thought-provoking, because sometimes I realize that there are chapters in my life that have been out of mind for so long that being confronted with them is a sudden reminder of just how long I've been walking around. Yeah.
In other news, we rented Prometheus last night, and I'm sorry about that. It's surprising when a movie with good people in it turns out to make such little sense, and be too long, t'boot. And there are lots of gross scenes, too. This morning, Ekim did some research into what the plot was supposed to be, and it turns out that we'd understood most of it, but we're not going to be seeing the sequel.
Also, tomorrow is our 24th wedding anniversary, another reminder of how long I've been walking around. How old will you be when you've been married half your life? I think this is an easy question, not a puzzler at all, but my husband works with some real brainiacs who did find this question difficult. It was too easy for them, obviously. They're used to the types of mathematical questions it takes a computer program to solve. Either that, or they are simply not as close to the answer as I am!
Back when we got our wedding license, we were asked three questions:
1. Are you cousins?
2. Do you have syphilis?
3. Are you insane?
Basically my wife was immature. I'd be at home in the bath and she'd come in and sink my boats.
