Song: “I Believe I Can Fly” by Me First and the Gimme Gimmes
I slept pretty well last night despite being bamboozled by the movie we watched just before bed. Named A Town Called Hell, it was almost impossible to follow and at one point we were almost sure it had jumped to another movie entirely. But, J and I like watching these movies and making fun of them – kind of like how we enjoy listening to records.
This morning I had a Dr C appointment which went quite well. She’s going to be leaving soon for a year and is going to transfer my file over to one of her colleagues. I’ve got to say that I’m pretty bummed out about that – I’ve been working with Dr C since February of last year and she has been really good at prying stuff loose and getting me to think more rationally about things. I don’t doubt that her colleague is also top-notch, I’m just very comfortable with her and I think she knows me pretty well by now. But, you’ve got to look out for number one and she’s no different.
After we got home, I went through all of my motorcycle gear just to make sure I could find it and it was still serviceable. I think I’m going for a ride tomorrow! I’m both nervous and really looking forward to it at the same time.
J made supper this evening and man was it ever good. Beef, cheese, tomatoes, homemade taco seasoning, corn, rice… all elements of a really good dish. I’d like to say I helped but all I really did was open a couple of cans and grate some cheese.
After supper we went for a little walk around the neighbourhood. There’s a park just across the street that we rarely go to so it was nice to take some time to walk through it and explore around a bit. It was around 19C out (so perfect for me) and there are still no mosquitoes around (which is really strange but I’m not complaining). It felt good to get out and enjoy some fresh air.
J needed some stuff from Amazon so we put in an order. One of the things I ordered was a “Triops” kit. A Triop is a freshwater crustacean that has three eyes and looks pretty disgusting. I’m wondering if they’ll get along with my cleaner shrimp. I’ll probably raise a few of them in a separate container to start and make sure they have lots of food (they tend to eat each other when they’re hungry).
This evening, we watched another western called Eagle’s Wing. It was the last movie in that Spaghetti Westerns pack we’ve been watching and I think it’s the one that made the most sense. The acting was good, the quality of the video and audio was pretty good, and it had a story. Not too bad.
Other than that, not much is going on. Wish me luck for my motorcycle ride!
