holy windy

30 12 2008

aye yie yie, was it ever windy out today!  and when you combine gale force winds with garbage day….

i took back roads to get to a  movie theater today and empty garbage cans were coming at me from the left and empty recyling bins were coming at me from the right.   and then just throw in a few tree branches to make things interesting.  it was a garbage can slalom.  honestly, i saw a recycling bin flying down the road at warp speed.  craziness.

filled up an empty water bottle with champagne and packed up my veggie chips and hit an afternoon matinee of “doubt.”  i’m the classiest gal i know.  the following story is no lie.  yesterday’s movie going experience was perfect.  and we all know i can’t have perfection 2 days in a row.  today, i am ALL ALONE in a row of 4, no-one in front of me, no-one behind me, i’ve taken the 2nd seat in.  the previews are done, the movie has just started when this HUGE shadow looms right next to me and proceeds to walk right into me.  just plowed right into my legs.  i’m all, “HELLO?!?!” 

     “oops, sorry, i didn’t see you.” 

so, turns out it’s two HUGE women.  they opt to sit in the empty row directly behind me.   and the other woman bops me in the back of the head while she’s sitting down.   i may have gotten a neck adjustment.   i let slip a loud “jeezus,” which seemed appropriate for the movie.   

     “oops, sorry ’bout that.” 

then they started talking and eating and chewing to the point where i thought i would kill them, but instead i just gathered up my champagne and chips and blanket and hat and pocketbook and made my way clear across the theater, completely isolated from anyone.  and i was able to relax and enjoy my movie in PEACE AND QUIET AND SAFE FROM HARM’S WAY.   the movie is good stuff.  and that’s all i’m saying.  everyone will get an oscar nomination (and yes, i know, it’s been said a million times already.)  but they will.  i’m jinxing myself, but i love it when i see 2 good movies in a row. 

heard an old lyle lovett song on the radio today as i was dodging the garbage cans and recycling bins and tree branches which has prompted me to post this photo of a handmade xmas tree ornament i made of lyle lovett from a shell i found in the hamptons, dahling.  enjoy.dscf0266
