Tonight I celebrate my father’s birthday. (Happy birthday, Dad!!) We’ll have tasty Mexican food (or as Mexican as Tulsa really gets, which is not actually all that Mexican. Also, if you know where I can get real Mexican food in Tulsa, let me know.) laugh, tell stories (we’re good at that) and then…well, someone will decide and we’ll do something else. (At last check, nothing was decided…that could have changed.)
After that, I got nothing….let me tell you, that is grand. It makes me (you guessed it)…happy. Saturday and Sunday all with nothing that needs to be done, just what I want to do. (Laundry and basic house maintenancey things don’t count, because they. never. end. Sometimes…being an adult sucks.) Movies, music, reading, legos, at least one random act of kindness (truly random, because I have no idea what I’ll do) and possibly actually, finally, finishing the furniture project I started…I don’t even remember when at this point. (Procrastination. It isn’t pretty but it is real.) The forecast calls for rain on Sunday, which is perfect for snuggling up with a good book or movie. Also, I have a need to finish Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl. I have suspicions…hmm…
Dexter has also become fond of tug-of-war outside. He doesn’t have to worry about knocking over anything, apparently that also includes me, and he wins more often. A dog toy scavenger hunt is also apparently planned, since most of Dex’s toys are no longer inside…how well do you think he hid them?
What do you have planned? Do your pets hide toys too?
Tonight I’m going to see The Great Budapest Hotel at Circle Cinema. I’ve heard really good things about it. I like Wes Anderson films, and this one has something like 15 Oscar nominees in it.
Last weekend I wanted to go see Divergent, but that didn’t happen. I’m in a movie watching mood, so it is a possibility this weekend.

I just listened to the Nerdist Podcast with Jared Leto. (It is from St. Pat’s. I’m behind.) He was talking about the film they made, Artifact, about being sued by their record company. I’ve heard really great things about it, but I haven’t seen it yet. Have you? What did you think? Of course, he’s also talking about Dallas Buyers Club. I haven’t seen that yet, but it is next on my Netflix list. Have you seen it? What did you think?
“Til next time,
P.S. A friend sent me a text this morning telling me to “behave” this weekend. Just so you know. That’s not going to happen.
P.P.S. Just as a note, I have had tickets to go see 30 Seconds to Mars twice, and I couldn’t go. TWICE… did I mention twice? I looooovvvveeee this band, and I’ve missed out on seeing them live TWICE.
P.P.P.S. I also have a friend who met Shannon Leto after a show and went up to him and said, “Congratulations!” If I remember right, she said his response was “for what?” She meets more famous people than I ever will. As far as I know, this was about as together as it gets when that happens. 😉
Neil deGrasse Tyson, is quickly becoming one of my favorite people to listen to. Now, I’ve been crazy busy, and I haven’t gotten to see Cosmos. This is one of those I’m really kind of upset to have missed, but hopefully things will slow down soon. When that happens, I’ll be able to catch it online, […]

Sunny California’s Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System has caused problems for pilots traversing the region. Two anonymous complaints were filed in August, before the Ivanpah Solar Electric Generating System ever came online. A pilot complaint stated that the intense brightness from the mirrors made it impossible to look in the direction of the plant, and […]
They’re all going to be at the Energy Thought Summit. What’s that? Well, my friend, keep reading and you’ll find out. (Maybe watch the video too.) Energy Thought Summit (ETS) is happening this month in Austin, Texas. On March 24th – 25th the energy industry is taking over the Paramount Theater for a two-day event that promises to […]
