Where did we leave off?

Oh, yes. Wed was pretty uneventful.

Thursday I left worklordaerith and msfrizz picked me up from work early to go to Toyota of Greenfield and finish the purches of our new 2002 V6 silver Camry, now named Baby, and the trade in of poor old Audrey.

Friday queencimmy and Pirate Wench showed up for the weekend.

Saturday was preparing for sader and a bit of running around and some hanging out.

Sader was very good. 4 glasses of wine. hehehe. things definatly got a bit silly. I love having a progressive, out there, weird sader. We had an orange on the sader plate and a cup for Miram (which I later libated). The food was so good, even if mom slightly burnt the brisket.

After sader, The Frenchman, Pirate Wench, queencimmy, and I went to the Rocky Horror Picture Show at the Tower Theatres. I never realize how much I miss RHPS until I see it again. The audience was really small and the cast had 4 alternates in it (due to the holiday weekend), but it was so good. It really reminded me of my New Orleans RHPS experiances where the cast wasn't perfect and the props weren't all there, but the heart that was put in to the show made it better than some of the well-rehearsed casts who are just going through the motions. Also since they were down in cast, Cimmy ended up doing Tricksy. I ran up there as the "camera man" behind the car and skinned my knee just a little on the stage. Not my first RHPS related injury by any means. I also went up for the dealing out of the cards. I wanted to catch Riff's liquor, but I didn't get out of my seat in time. There's something so wonderful about RHPS. I just love the energy that is generated there, espcially when people from different areas are in one theatre exchanging lines.

Sunday cimmy and pirate wench left and then we drove mom to the airport. It was so nice having her around. i miss my mommy. but it was nice to have the house back to just Aerith and I. We cleaned up some more, did a bit of laundrey and watched Trading Spaces Home Free. I really hope the light blue team makes it to the finals. Everyone should go to http://www.tlc.com and vote for them.

Today Octavia Bulter is talking at Smith at 4pm. I really want to go, but tomorrow Aerith and I are looking at Look Park and Wed I want to visit my seamstress friend so I need to work late today *pout*. Oh well. I guess that comes with living in the "real world". Priorities. and comprimise. So no Bulter for me due to wedding stuff. Talking about "real world" I better get back to work.

taxes

i just did my federal taxes. ok, aerith did them (mostly) and i just checked his math (which he messed up once) and wrote out the form in my handwriting. we had already done my state b/c i was getting some back. but i had messed up at RCN and put down 2 deductions not 1 or 0. the thing is that we noticed on my pay stubs that the amount of taxes taken out was very small, but the amount of money on the check seemed to be about right. of course i figured out the other month (when we realized I owed federal) that we forgot to count in the amount taken out for health insurance every pay check. oops. but then i got my studen loans thingy so i didn't owe quite as much as we thought i would. but i got some back from state (not as much as i owed federal). i wanted to write a note w/my check saying "please use this money for roads or schools. please do not use it for oil or war." but I didn't. but if any goverment spy thing is reading this, that is my wish.

wow, i am tired. it is very much bedtime.
