Complete and utter failure. Worst ponytail EVER. I took the dogs for a short jog this afternoon, and for the first time in months, I put my hair into a normal ponytail instead of the double-decker thing I’ve been doing (which has been working just fine). Because the ponytail wasn’t tight enough, it slid down the back of my head, freeing all the shorter hair in front to flop around in my face. I couldn’t just tuck it behind my ears (over and over and over) like I usually would because I was wearing my ear grips to keep my wittle ears warm, so I didn’t have ears behind which to tuck the hair. Behind which.
John has been in the driveway all morning replacing the rear brakes on the mustang. It’s not supposed to be this hard. That’s true of EVerything he does to this car. Except when he replaced the drive belt a couple of weeks ago. That one went pretty well. He got the driver’s side done, but he’s having trouble compressing the piston back into the caliper on the passenger side. I’ve been googling the problem, but he’s got the right tool and he seems to be doing all the right things. He’s not ready to assume the caliper has seized yet, but if he can’t fit the new brake pad in, he may have to replace the caliper. And that will mean he won’t be going to his cousin’s new baby’s christening. Because it will take the rest of the weekend (bleeding brake lines, replacing parts, adding fluid, etc) and he won’t have a car to drive until it’s done. So we’ll see. But if he does go, he’ll leave for PA tonight to spend the evening with his family and then drive to Long Island with them Sunday morning for the christening. He’ll stay with his parents in PA Sunday night and go to work from their house Monday morning. So I won’t see him again until after work on Monday. On the plus side, I’ll have Indian for dinner and watch movies he’s not interested in. But that’s only fun for one night, not two. Oh! Speaking of movies, we watched 500 Days of Summer last night. We both really liked it. Joseph Gordan-Levitt was fantastic, and while we didn’t like Zooey Deschanel’s character as much, she was really good. John couldn’t decide if he thought she was really attractive or not. He said he wasn’t sure if he’d call her beautiful, or even pretty, but he wants to keep looking at her. So at least he thinks she’s interesting. I think she’s very pretty. She’s got that blue eyes with dark hair thing I’ve always liked. Like Liesl in The Sound of Music. 🙂 And I will watch the musical number (from 500 Days) at least three more times before I put the movie back in the mail.
