Piercing holes


He would be able to fly if he could flap those ears I reckon. They are terribly flappy when we go out walking in the wind like we did yesterday. He really is unbearably cute and people stop me on the street every day to tell me. You think I'm exaggerating but actually I'm understating. Often times more than once I'll be stopped on the street to be informed of Georgie's cuteness. He oughta be in commercials. Who do I need to talk to about that?

This whole computer business is taking up too much of my time. Have you noticed on Facebook that sometimes your friends sound different? When did boasting become fashionable. Sometimes I feel like I'm on the playground as a five year old and everyone is saying hey look at me and neener neener neener. I suppose the child in us never dies, but the gloatiness definitely should. Of course I should talk what with the blog and all.

Almost done with the diet, hoorah. I've noticed my shoes have been very loose lately and it finally dawned on me that I've lost weight in my feet. Not just the feet of course, but everywhere on the body. Yesterday I did the Fonz when I passed by the mirror naked after my shower. Lookin good dude. Now what was I just saying about gloatiness?

Yesterday was spouse's birthday. Unfortunately, it was my only work day of the week, 8am-7pm. So he spent the day alone and went out to dinner with his mom. I did get him gifts lest you think I'm some kind of monster. The first gift was a new set of kitchen knives. We haven't had a good set in, well, I don't think ever and now we do. All the good sets require hand washing which sucks, but we'll be good about that for a year or so and then we'll say fuck it. The second and primary gift (I splurged this year) was a Makita drill set that he has been pining after for, well, nearly ever. He keeps piercing holes in things to play with it. I've never seen someone so happy about a tool. That just isn't in my DNA. Glad he likes it though.

Not much else going on, I've got four days off and then 10 hours next week of work. Poor Serge is swamped with work from clients but I don't know how to do any of the programming so I can't help. Instead I'll go off to the movies and read my stack of books that keeps growing. I saw a powerful film the other day called Incendies which is going to be Canada's official selection for the Acadamy Awards foreign film category. I bet it will be among the final nominees. There were some pretty horrific scenes in that movie but given the war setting, that's to be expected I suppose. I cried three times during the film. Tomorrow is Harry Potter but I think I'll wait a week or so before I go to avoid the crowds. Okay enough blathering on, have a lovely day now ya hear?

This reminds me that I, too, need go see Incendies. I hear it's not easy but definitely good.

Like Serge, I'm a total power tool whore. I tell people I'm channeling my inner dyke.

Birdie said...

Ooh, I'm all about power tools. My hubbie's given me a Makita jigsaw, power drill and a router for various Christmases. I'm good for now; don't do much repair work or building any more. My masterpiece, the kids' treehouse, was finally taken down last year.

Yes, Georgie belongs in commercials and ads. You can be his agent.

I got the Makita drill for Christmas last year. It came with a portable stereo that you can plug your iPod into that's "work site strong."
I need new knives too, according to Murphy. I have Wiltshire serrated knives, which she says are shit.
When I walk MY dog, people always say "What an interesting looking dog, what kind is he?"

Mark My Words said...

I love a good power tool too.

Bonne fete, Serge!

Knives and a power drill? Not a bad haul for a birthday.

Your dog IS cute.

CoffeeDog said...

Yes Georgie is precious. And so are you and Serge :-) I dont get the cute comment for our pooch Hugo, but he does get called pretty a lot - he is the shiniest dog I've ever seen

Cubby said...

Oh Harry Potter! I can't wait!

anne marie in philly said...

Anonymous, too said...

Happy birthday, Serge! Are you of legal age yet ;-)?

A hunky birthday boy, a slimmer Torn, and Georgie. How can one apartment house so much cute???

"I've never seen someone so happy about a tool."

Bwahahahahaha! Best line of the week.

Lemuel said...

Belated happies to Serge! I loved the image of him going around looking for things on which to use his new gift. One knows he got the right gift when that happens.

Snooze said...

Glad you gave details of Incendie. I wanted to see it not knowing much about it but I can't handle today's war scenes. I'll stick to watching old episodes of Fortier for my French!

Happy belated birthday to Serge.

The importance of good knives can never be overstated. I will never be without my Wusthof.

I'm glad Georgie gets a lot of compliments, he deserves them! I know you will not think I'm merely trying to say, "Oh yeah, me too!" but it's true. The other day, someone stopped in a car while we were walking in the neighborhood (which kinda freaked me out) rolled the window down, and asked what kind of dog she is and said she was cute. Happens all the time. I guess that makes us stage parents, huh?

I don't have powertool envy but I do wish I knew how to use them. Have a lovely weekend Richard.

Georgie is just adorable, as always. When I walk our dogs, you wouldn't believe how many people stop to say 'sooo cute'. My narcissistic side says they are just using the dogs to flirt with me, but it REALLY is the dogs.

Oh, and hubby's birthday...you had me at 'kitchen knives'. Give me something for the kitchen and I melt, because it says to me 'you appreciate that I enjoy cooking, and you like it when I cook for you' (note to my Hubz)

Happy birthday to the spouse!

Facebook remains a mystery to me.

S said...

1. Happy (very belated) birthday to Serge.

2. It's worse when they update FB 100 times a day. That's what Twitter is for.

3. My verified word is hells.

Catching up...

Boys and tools - who understands them, eh? :-)

LOL with the 'He would be able to fly if he could flap those ears' sentence
