This n that

Yesterday was a good day. I woke up in an unusually good mood and rode that wave all day. It's about time. It's been a good month since I woke up feeling like a million bucks. In the afternoon, I went and picked up David, who remarked that it's hot here like in Houston. (Not as hot, mind you, but hot still) We got him squared away in the apartment downstairs and went for a stroll in the village. I fixed some barbeque and we stayed up rather late chatting.

Two girls just passed by the front of the house on the sidewalk and one of them spit into our yard. She spit like guys who spit spit. So automatic, it was almost like a tick. I wonder if she chews.

So there's nothing much else to say. Sometimes I feel like I've already said everything and I'm just waiting for the universe to supply the next storyline. Which reminds me, the TV people are coming over today to interview us about being married. They're going to ask us what it changed for us, and Serge wants to practice so we don't argue in front of the cameras. I told him that married couples often argue like we do, and that it will show how utterly ordinary we are. It's not arguing really, it's more like constant correction of each other. They asked us for video and pics of the wedding too. We found the video of the ceremony, and were both alarmed at how much younger we looked. Less than four years ago.

Serge, Em and me Oct. 9th 2004

Will you be able to link us to a clip of the TV shot? That would be cool.

"Just David!" said...

The evenings are sooooo much cooler here though!! And, I think today might just be the day to MAKE a storyline. It feels odd to comment on your blog when you're just right upstairs. Ha!

Fatinah said...

see, now that you've quit smoking, you won't age as fast - another thing to put in the PRO column.

Nice wedding picture by the by!! You both look very handsome.

Polt said...

wow...tv stars! you guys are so cool!

Nice wedding photo.

HUGS...

Greg said...

Great wedding photo. Can't wait to hear what the next storyline is...perhaps the TV crew will amuse.

You should totally give them the video of "Peggy Babcock." ; )

Laverne said...

Oh, that dress on Em... such a perfect shade of green...

uh hem, sorry. You all look fabu. I remember the stupid video camera's batteries kept failing.

Four years. Wow.

I love million dollar mornings! What a treat after struggling with cravings. That's a reward that is! More to come.

Ew about the filthy bitch spitting in your yard. Get some Ajax on that: stat!

RJ March said...

What, nobody saw that or feels inclined to correct? SPAT. She spat on your grass. And why, because I feel this too, is it so much more repulsive to see a woman spit?

Continue your continuing success.

CoffeeDog said...

Younger, yes. I hate seeing pictures of myself now that I am advancing in age.

You guys all look so cute!

Patricia said...

Those tuxedos are GORgeous! The guys in 'em ain't too shabby, either.

But Em's smile steals the show :)

Butch said...

That's a very good picture of you and Serge and I don't see any difference in four years at all. One of these years, my state will finally come to its senses and treat everyone equally. We were married for one year ( married in Oregon ) until a judge decided against us and 3000 other couples.

Many of my relatives are from West Virginia and many of the males from my grandfather, and father's generation "chew tobacco" or as they would say, "chaw tobacco". In my grandfather's case, he used to work for the B & O railroad and they couldn't smoke in the job he did so most of them "chewed."
The young lady with the loose spit, may have grown up around boys who love to spit as an habit or perhaps she is trying to impress her girlfriend with her aim. ;-)

Jen said...

I was thinking the spitter may've been a hockey/soccer/some other spit-inducing sport player. Some people just don't get that if you are off of the ice/feild you can't do that. Plus, why the yard? Isn't the gutter, like, right there? At the very least, turn the other way!

I recently saw a runner do that nose blow thing, which is fine[ish] (but only marginally), but they were obviously cooled down and walking. Sorry, but if you are breathing and moving lightly enough to actually blow your nose properly using a paper product, um, you should...

em said...

God. Four years already? And yet it feels like twenty too.

Congratulations again. I love your old cranky marriedness.

Phronk said...

It's so funny how married people constantly correct each other on even the most mundane things. "When we bought that bread yesterday..." "No honey, it was two days ago" "No it was yesterday god dammit".

anabel said...

What a great picture. Those nice balanced days are treat aren't they?

Birdie said...

I want to see the wedding video! You guys look amazing, as you know, but Patricia's right: Em's smile is dazzling.

Here in Indiana, just about everyone spits. It's disgusting. I hate having to dance around wet spots in the parking lots. Ugh. At intersections, if a car door opens, you just know that—yep—someone's leaning out to spit. Is Indiana the only state like that? (I hope so.)

Roxrocks said...

Maybe the girl got a bug in her mouth. It's happened to me. I spit if I've been mowing and get a yap full of dust too. It's not attractive but it happens.

Nothing ages a person quite like saying "I do!" LMAO!

Em is adorable.

magnolia_2000 said...

please be aware of i-girl at wmtc.ca. i'm afraid shes a secret homophobe. just a warning cutie.

Lightning Bug's Butt said...

Holy crap. I didn't know you guys were married. Or maybe I just forgot.

Congratulations. And why the hell wasn't I invited to the wedding?

dit said...

what a handsome couple you are. 8-)

Java said...

Love that wedding photo! It's nice to see Em, too. :)
I spent my teens as the only girl in a family with 5 brothers (3 of 'em step-) and a very butch step-mother and outdoorsman dad. I taught my sons to spit. Hell, I had to teach my gay 18 yr old foster son to spit. His attempts were pathetic before I taught him the right way to spit. It's a useful skill. That being said, however, it is important for a lady to know when and where NOT to spit. I try. And Birdie, there's a hell of a lot of spit here in South Carolina. Ewwww!

Cooper said...

What a wonderful photo! You guys look great, and somehow I just knew that Em was gorgeous, too.

I don't usually spit ... just sayin' ... :)

Jen said...

Troll alert: magnolia_2000 and "i-girl" are one in the same and NOT l-girl (the original) both pseudonyms for a [not very good] troll with a hate on for wmtc. S/he seems to be working through her links.

See:

magnolia_2000 said...

jen, mind your own fucking business. believe it or not the world does not revolve around wmtc, laura or her emasculated boyfriend. and if you dont know that laura is a homophobe you dont know her very well. shes the one who said gay sex was gross not me.

A Bear in the Woods said...

I think you guys look way hotter now.
Just saying...

A Bear in the Woods said...

Well, ok, Serges butt in that photo from that hotel room in Shanghai or where ever was pretty sensational.
I mean really, one of the all time great asses.
I'd happily become an illegal alien for that.
Oops, was that not decorous?
Sorry.

The Wisdom of Wislon said...

Ah lovely pic! xx

L-girl said...

Thanks Jen! The troll is so lame, he leaves hints at my blogs (comments that I reject in moderation) to tell me where he's been. Nice to see you here. We have many mutual friends!

redsock said...

believe it or not the world does not revolve around wmtc, laura or her emasculated boyfriend

but his world does!!

L-girl said...

shes the one who said gay sex was gross not me

Actually, I quite like gay sex.

redsock. said...

laura please! please dont make me think of sex and you in the same thought. yuck. i agree with magnolia, wmtc's laura is not what she makes out to be. just beware of "i-girl". i've heard her make homophobic comments in person, at her little backyard party last june.

magnolia_2000 said...

thanks redsock. let me add that i've learned that laura used racist and homophobic language when she was a secretary in new york city. that is one of the reasons she they fled up here. they didnt come because they loved canada.
