I admit to annoyance. First off, our good friend Jesse is doing her yearly Blogathon, raising money for the Tri-County Humane Society. That’s not what irks me. In fact, I’ve already donated. What irks me is that she’s giving away this Squeeky toy thing to whoever guesses what a particular song clip is, and even after three hints I still can’t figure out WTF song it is. It’s not that I want it for myself; I want to win it so that I can give it to Missy. *sigh*
I had an optometrist’s appointment this morning. I surprised them somewhat by revealing that I haven’t worn contact lenses since I got that corneal ulcer in my eye back in December. It’s really a combination of A) not being bothered enough to deal with it, and B) not exactly looking forward to putting something in my eye again. So, I ended up buying new glasses, which I should be receiving in a couple of weeks, once they put the antiglare coating in and mount them on the frames. These are rimless glasses, which should look nice. In addition, they’re like my previous glasses in that they come with clip-on sunglasses that clamp over the bridge via a magnet. They look quite nice, if I do say so myself. Ah, well… just have to wait for them to come in.
Also this afternoon we went to eat at Ruby Tuesday’s. We were up for a change, and only found out this week that there was one at Willowbrook Mall. I should say, that a new one had opened near Willowbrook; twenty years ago there had been one in the mall itself, and we had rather enjoyed it. Then it closed, and we hadn’t heard of a Ruby Tuesday’s in Houston since this week, when my coworker Cherry mentioned seeing one across US 249 from Willowbrook. Anyway, we went there and had dinner there… though we weren’t expecting it to primarily be a burger place. :-) A lot can change in twenty years, though… anyway, it was a good meal and we enjoyed ourselves. We’ll keep it as a standby.
As for the rest of this weekend… hmm. Not sure what I’ll do to occupy myself. Right now I’m just drinking a Shiner and relaxing. I’ll probably sleep in tomorrow and watch movies most of the day. Not sure what yet, though. For now, though… just going to go play some pinball. Fun fun…
EDIT: I finally realized what song it was after I heard a phone post with Jesse’s oldest daughter Lisa singing it: Al Stewart’s “Year of the Cat”. So, by some miracle I was able to win it, and Missy will get the squeaky toy she wanted. :-)
