yolen: (What's this?)
So, as MB & I were waiting at the bus stop on the corner of the park that's a 2 minute walk from our building earlier today (on the way to meet [personal profile] fings for lunch), I saw a dude a few park benches down fall on the ground and sort of just start to flail around. I became alarmed and started fumbling for my cell phone when I noticed that Willie the Hot Dog guy and some of his crew were sitting on their plastic chairs calmly looking down the guy at Flailing Guy. "Shouldn't we call 911, isn't that guy having a seizure?!?!" I asked. "No", said Willie the Hot Dog Guy, "He's not having a seizure, he's just crazy". His 2 buddies quietly nodded in agreement. Ok, then!

After a few minutes, I was glad to see that someone had called 911 and an officer approached him and went away a few minutes later apparently satisfied that he wasn't in danger or anything. By that point, Flailing Guy was just muttering and gesticulating wildly. But he wasn't bothering anyone.

Poor guy, I'm sure he's in need of some serious long term aid.

Still, I am laughing about how this dude was flipping out on the ground, and how calmly the fellows at the hot dog stand were watching. It was like a scene from a movie, or something.

So, I decided that I am going to watch "House" at all this year, it's going to be online. [personal profile] fings doesn't give a crap about the show, and I'm all for watching Hugh Laurie's great performance even if the show has jumped the shark, but then again, I have a huge Netflix queue to work through. Who saw the season premiere? Does it look worth watching this season?

Finally cleaned out a box of old clothing I've been meaning to tackle. Picked out some stuff to go to Goodwill. In the pile are 2 pairs of jeans I've been hauling around for 10+ years...the "I will lose weight and fit into these jeans again!" jeans. Depressing. I wore these things 100 pounds ago, just about. All these years of having them stored, and I've just gotten heavier and heavier. I might have to accept that I will never be that size again. But I still need to work on losing weight. In the meantime, I'm releasing those jeans. No point in dwelling on how I used to look, have to concentrate on how I want to look in the future.

Probably the most depressing thing about looking at those jeans is how I thought I was fat then. Amazing.

[personal profile] fings and I went for a physical earlier this week, and we are depressed about our weight, concerned about our blood pressure, etc. We have got to stop feeling bad and DO something. We have to get healthier, for our own sakes and for the sake of our son. Oy gevalt.

After being up for most of the night despite myself, I crashed at 7am in the recliner and woke up around 1pm. I stretched when I woke up, and got a charley horse in my left calf. It hurt like a FUCKING GODDAMNED MOTHERFUCKER, ZOMG. Thank goodness [personal profile] fings was home, he was able to rub my calf for me as I whimpered and cursed in pain. I wish like hell there was a less painful way for my body to let me know I am low on calcium. I drank some calcium enriched orange juice and took some Viactiv calcium chews once I was able to walk, and made sure to drink plenty of milk today. I'm glad I can stomach the chews again, for a long while there, they were making me gag.

I didn't get to sleep until about 6am. I was polishing the cedar chest at 5am. I was alternating cleaning and watching "The Countdown" w/Keith Olbermann and "The Rachel Maddow Show" on MSNBCtv. I slept on the recliner until 11:15am, the longest I've ever been able to stay sleeping on that thing, LOL. I crawled into bed until noon, and then [personal profile] fings and I showered, dressed, grabbed a folding chair (just in case, we had no idea if there would be a very long line, and I didn't fancy standing for an hour or more. stupid flat feet! we didn't need it).

Finally voting was just great. I must say however, I miss the old school voting machines where the switches you moved for your vote kind of clicked, and then you pulled the lever with a very satisfying "ka-chunk!". Afterwards, we went to Cafe Rumba for some damn fine Cuban food.

We got home and I napped a bit on the recliner. I woke up rather cranky. I was feeling utteryly wiped out. Now I'm just really tired. Both mentally, and physically. I guess the stress of it all has taken a bit of a toll. Thank goodness this day is finally here, and we will know one way or the other what the frigging outcome is, already! My stomach is in knots, and I've already cried a little. I am hopeful, very hopeful.

We are expecting [personal profile] thudthwacker and [personal profile] eafm in a short while, as well as my oldest nephews. We'll eat, play some games, order some food. And maybe have the MSNBC.com live coverage on :D.

And yes, our apartment is cleaner and neater than it has been in weeks and weeks. HUZZAH!!! Now we need to work on the small room (so full of stuff and junk) and neaten up the guest room. Oh, and lots of damn paperwork to sift through, file, shred, organize. I need to draft one of my nephews to help move a lot of stuff to Goodwill. Oh, and we especially (ok, I need to) make sure the current level of clean and neat gets maintained as much as possible.

So, our weekend consisted of more bumming around and less cleaning that I had hoped for. At least we got into Manhattan on Saturday night, the way we had planned. We came dangerously close to being totally lame and staying home. We went to the Strand, Kim's Video, had dinner and later some snacks (btw, avoid the Quizno's across the street from the Strand, that was the shittiest Quizno's ever! the meat in our cheese steaks was subpar & gristly, bleah. the customer service was LAME. I mean seriously, [personal profile] fings asked for potato soup and they gave him broccoli cheddar, he went back to get the correct soup, and this time a different dude gave him chicken soup. um, ok. at least it was something he liked. but man!). It was a lovely cool evening and we once again berated ourselves for being bums who don't go wandering in NYC more often.

Fings suggested that he take a week off sometime in October so we can be "tourists" and I think I like that idea. The World Trade Center is gone, but we can still go to the top of the Empire State Building or Rockefeller Plaza. We can see about getting discount Broadway tickets. I'd like to see "Wicked" while it's still possible. Oh, we can do a day wandering in Central Park. I'd like to go to the Guggenheim and the Frick Museums. Still haven't been to the MOMA since they reopened and charge $20 entry, but I've been meaning to. I like this idea more and more.

Went to my little nephew J's pre-K "graduation" today. OMG, a bunch of 4 year olds singing and dancing brings on the LULZ. My parents, my SIL and her mother were there as well. My brother couldn't take time off from work, he feels bad. But we took a shitload of pictures and I took a few little videos, so that's something. Have to see about getting it all uploaded on a cd for them. Little J. was so proud of himself, and he totally dug getting to show off for his family. I love him bunches.

Had lunch with [personal profile] fings in Hoboken. Ate forbidden fruit from Johnny Rockets which made me have to high tail it to the bathroom a short while later (sorry, TMI). But that shit was *good* so there.

Had a really great swim on campus. My goal is to go swimming 5 days a week, but I'll be happy to get up to 3 days a week consistently.

Started a project in the basement, I'm going to paint and clean out the utility room. But first, three of the walls need priming. Primed the 1st coat on the 1st wall. Felt good to at least get that started.

Ate delicious turkey lasagna leftovers. It's always nice to have a good dinner without having to cook that night!

OMFG, I almost had a heart attack from the way that the winds started to blow like crazy (hurled a window fan out of the window, that's about when I jumped up a foot). Lightning. WTF. It's raining hard as hell now, thundering and lightning like a mofo, winds are crazy. And [personal profile] fings had to stay late at work because a transformer at the college blew so IT stuff regarding keeping the computer room ok had to ensue. He's still not home :(.

We had a blackout for about a minute, but the stove/oven and the refrigerator aren't working. I've fiddled with the circuit breakers but no joy. WTF. I am not happy.

Four years ago today I threw [personal profile] fings a "wink" on Yahoo personals. We started emailing on 5/29/04, and met for the first time on 6/4/04. We'll be celebrating 4 years together, 2 married on June 4th. I love my sweetie!
