Fiona and me in the snow

the surreality of life

I had planned to write last night, but Survivor took over my evening, then sleep, so I neglected to write. Too bad, I guess I'll have to start where I had planned to start yesterday, then continue with today's exciting events.

We actually froze one of those icicles from hell yesterday. This one that sits in our freezer still today at it's widest point is about two inches in diameter and comes, or came to a very sharp point before we had to pry it from the freezer. It unfortunately refroze to the freezer shelf when my mom got it in there, so it kind of broke when I pried it up. There was a n icicle that was four feet long and three to four inches in diameter that we thought about getting down, but apparently it was too high up on the eaves and my mom didn't want to impale herself on the sharp bit of the icicle, so we decided to forgo that idea. How sucky would that be to die by impalement from an icicle. There's always said to be the murder mystery in which someone dies with an unfounded weapon, namely an icicle. Yes, gross!

We made a ginger cake yesterday, and it was really good. Covered with powdered sugar, it was exquisite for afternoon tea yesterday hot.

Survivor was quite good again. I really enjoy the battle of the sexes theme they have going on as it really shows the great rift we as humans have between the sexes. They had to pick some of the most arogant guys ever though, all they ave on their minds is sex, sex, and more sex. I'm pulling for the women because they truly have the edge here as of late.

Today was quite interesting indeed. I went to the psych appointment expecting not much except for usual psychological stuff. I never expected what actually happened. I don't think you're supposed to really "know" your psychiatrist before you get=t in there, but I, in fact know ex-counsellor Priest, Now Dr. Priest quite well. I didn't recognize him for the first mnute, but then all the memories started coming and it made for an interesting meeting. The story is that I went to a camp like nine years ago at an AEGIS (Arkansas Education of the gifted in The Summer) at Searcy Arkansas, where my mom teaches now. It was a camp called Mission Mars in which we learned lots and lots more than I wanted to know about Mars. Dean, the counsellor, witnessed the first time I shaved, gave me many worthless tips on women, and helped pull off one of the funniest pranks I've done. I'll cut it here so this entry isn't seven million pages on your friends pages but if you want to read more about it and the appointment, do so, it'll make you smile.

After the appointment, I got a really short haircut and came home. I went straight to sleep pretty much after getting lunch. Of course I fell asleep in front of Cnn, again.

Not much else is going on except for I really need to finish my book. I really am a freak. I'll write more later I'm sure, peace all.
