Addendum, minutiae, another non-GIP
1. My head hurts, and I have no Excedrin.

2. And in the "whether you can hear it or not, the universe is laughing behind your back..." department, one of the rumoured sites for the rumoured June 23rd Serenity screen is... Creve Coeur AMC, St. Louis. Which is about 10 minutes from sarabi and mr_sarabi. If we'd waited for the next showing, we could've made a trip to see the college gang without having to detour all the way up to Chicago. OTOH, it wouldn't have been Memorial Day weekend, with a built-in day off work, and I wouldn't have got to see the next phase of entropy in my childhood home, or Spanky's Bar & Grill.

3. What would be awesome and will not happen is a pre-screening in Evansville. Birthplace of Ron Glass, home of my (and his) alma mater, and Shyler's BBQ, for which both the local contingent and the St. Louis folks have been known to travel several hundred miles. Just for the barbecue. Sleep in Best Western, eat BBQ, play cards, go home.

4. Nonexistant prankster: *ringring* Is your refrigerator running?
mpoetess: No.
Nonexistant prankster: {crickets} ...Dude. Sorry about your luck.
mpoetess: Got 400 bucks?
Guess what we're {probably; there's a slight chance it's not completely verjiggered} doing this weekend?

5. Icon courtesy a postcard from zortified, circa last August, who claims that it does not represent her, because she is clearly the Good One, due to her having been given rum. Ha I say. Ha.

6. And while most of Whovian fandom (or at least new-Whovian fandom) is probably making "But where's the rum?" jokes, maeyan and I are earworming each other with "Captain Jack was a young man when he went to sea. Oh me young ladies, go and kiss him goodbye..."

7. White Noise is out at the video rental place. I want it. It shall be mine. (Not to keep; I don't buy horror movies. I watch and then wash my hands of them.)

8. Saving Face looks really good: gay Asian girl keeps trying to come out to a mother who is blissfully and probably willfully clueless, and also happens to be unmarried and pregnant. The mother, I mean. April's Shower is also f/f (and/or bi) themed: one of the guests at a wedding shower used to date the bride-to-be, and the relationship isn't as over as they thought. (It's one of those movies that looks like it'll have trouble deciding if it's a smart comedy or a thirtysomething estrogen-fest slumber party a la Live Nude Girls, though.) Also Tim Burton's Corpse Bride looks like great fun in the Nightmare Before Christmas tradition.

Do you at least haave Prince Albert in a can to keep yourself fed until your fridge is fixed? Sorry to hear about the fridge. And the headache.

How about Prince Albert on a Spike? That could keep me occupied until the new fridge gets here. On Saturday.

Saturday?!

That's not cool. Literally.

Nope. On the plus side, they will take away the old one when they deliver the new.

Even if you vent your frustration on it by smashing it into itty-bitty pieces with a sledgehammer? 'Cause that might make the wait worth it. Maybe.

I think they would've delivered it sooner, but maeyan said Saturday in order to have time to clean up the house, and a day that we'd both be home to let them in and herd the cats without having to take off work.

I guess that makes sense, but what are you doing about food until then?

The freezer is still working (just) so we're living off frozen stuff mostly, or nonperishables. Not that, frankly, I wasn't already living off frozen stuff.

Are you eating enough greens? Leafy green, not gummy green? And you know most fruits are happier at room temperature than refrigerated...

Green gummy worms! Wheee!

Our fruits live outside the fridge. Only cheese, meat, and condiments live inside the fridge, for the most part.

Okay, then. :) *gives you a cookie*

Ooh, you're playing with your journal format! Every time I click I get different colors. It's fun. :)

Hee! Yes, I am.

LOL! And now I've seen two more!

Sleep in Best Western, eat BBQ, play cards, go home.

Actually it is a Red Roof Inn, I believe. Distinguished from the Best Wetern by
A) being not the best;
B) being on the eastern side of town;
C) having a red roof.

*sits back and waits for you to say it was on the West side of town*

mpoetess

No, you are correct. It is a Red Roof Inn and on the east side. Best Western is, I think, where H&J tend to stay when they come to see us.

Dude, saving face looks awesome. Plus filled with lots of hot asian chics = guaranteed Dani viewing. *grins*

*glares at your fridge*

I wanna seee. Possibly next weekend. Assuming it's even playing here.

It's very cute, if lacking in convoluted/deep plot. I saw it on Saturday night and was promptly filled with the urge to find a hot asian chic club. Why are there not more of these? *pouts*
