Ken had a late meeting last night, and didn't get home until almost 9 PM. He had already made arrangements to work from home today, so he's sitting across from me right now! This means that we were able to drop his car off at the dealer, then get a few groceries, and we can pick up the car at 2 PM. There's no way I would have--or could have--sat there for four hours waiting, and I didn't have to hassle with them bringing me home, etc.
I didn't want to go to the store tomorrow, because it is the home opener for Notre Dame! Woohoo! Of course, that meant the store was fairly busy today, but it wasn't bad. We got stuff for a Snack Food dinner tomorrow--some interesting cheeses, etc. Football is here! Happy happy joy joy!
I forgot to write about this. Donna over at This and that, and Hockey! has started a fun little game. She calls it Mystery Blogger, where people send in an old picture of themselves and we all have to try and guess who it is. Mary was the first Mystery Blogger, and I was the second. This is the picture I sent to Donna:
That's Cousin Shane on the left. This remains one of my favorite pictures, just because we were having such a good time, and laughing a lot--they way we usually do!
If I recall, I was up from college (this would have been in the early 80's) to spend the weekend with Shane and Aunt Bert and her husband. We were out somewhere to get a few things (maybe K-Mart?), and for some reason, we decided to hop in the photo booth. I had my Sex Pistols T-shirt on, the "God Save the Queen" one with the picture of Queen Elizabeth with her eyes and mouth blacked out. I also had a button on, and Shane thinks it might have been the Clash, "London Calling." I was really into my punk rock at that time! Shane and I would play records for hours, and of course, there was always MTV, which actually played cool music videos back then!
So I love this picture, despite the dorky Sally Jesse Raphael glasses, and that my nose looks HUGE! It's really not that big, at least I've never thought it was freakishly large. Anyhoo, the picture reminds me of a time when the world was mine for the taking, but really all we wanted to do was just rock out and have a good time.
Hmm. I guess things haven't changed all that much! Except for my glasses.
