So, went to Georgetown for the next fitting of the jacket my mom is constructing for me, and…it didn’t fit. Somewhere, we lost some inches that I haven’t lost yet, and am not likely to anytime soon. So there were adjustments made. Trying again next Friday. I have a really awesome mom to be willing to fight with what has turned out to be a pattern from Hell.
On the way, I renewed my P.O. Box, which had actually lapsed last Friday, but I was sick. Thankfully, I was still in the grace period, because I have had that box over a decade. My business cards and everything list that address. My royalties often go to that box. Not having it any more would have been a really bad thing. All taken care of now — my responsible bit of the day.
Then had a lovely lunch with the parental units and my niece. Afterwards we (me and the niece) went to see Snow White and the Huntsman. I agreed with pretty much everything my friend Howard Tayler had to say about it. It was a pretty, pretty movie. I also almost fell asleep several times, because it was just boring in places. The dwarves were right cool though. Beautifully done. And there were a few memorable moments. I loved the fact that the mirror was a polished metal disk and not glass. But I would not recommend rushing to the theaters to see it. I do think that Rock of Ages looks like it might be fun though, and I saw a trailer for The Odd Life of Timothy Green that looked amazing. Definitely on my must see list.
On the way home, I called Newell and we met for dinner at Serrano’s. Yummy. That was basically my nice, relaxing, recuperative day. I think we will be jumping back into things next week with bells on.
