My big day went fine. Nothing particularly exciting, but that’s totally okay. It was busy and full of new stuff, and I think my head is going to be stuffed with information that I need to retain and be able to explain to others, but how can that be bad? Before it gets boring, I mean. 🙂
Oh, I lied. Something exciting DID happen. I got a Blackberry! I have a brand new Blackberry Curve, and I don’t know how to use it. 🙂 It came with my email set up already, so I don’t have to worry about that, but I don’t even know what the number is OR where to find out. I’m reading the manual and going through the tutorials. I’m sure it’s in there somewhere.
I’m making salmon for dinner, and unwrapping the white paper packaging reminded me of how much I love the people who work behind the counters at Wegman’s. Sunday, I had a funny conversation with the fish guy after he convinced me to buy this salmon instead of that salmon (better quality and cheaper, since it was priced by weight and not by piece) because my wearing a Boston College sweatshirt without ever going there reminded him of the time he wore a Sharks sweatshirt (not because he’s a fan, but because it was comfortable) in Pittsburgh and got snarled at by someone who was decidedly NOT a Sharks fan. His joke in reply (“What are you, a Jet?”) went over the other guy’s head. Anyway, he was a big guy, broad shoulders, big gray mustache, very loud. A few weeks ago I got into a 15-minute conversation with the guy at the kosher counter. I was buying kugel (potato and noodle) so I could check out their recipes (they make a delicious apple noodle kugel). He talked about his mother’s kugel recipes, then latkes, then matzo balls, then about his grandkids, and how he’s a little annoyed (but in a good-natured way) that he’s expected to cook for everyone at home all the time when all he does all day at work is cook. But his grandson asked him, so he did it.
I’m cooking and John’s home and I want to play with my new Blackberry.
Update: Roxy had another seizure just before 11pm. I should have seen that one coming. She’s had two seizures in one day that last couple of times, too.
