Moving, Brain Fog + Richard Gere
I’m starting to wrap my head around moving out of my condo + getting it ready to rent. My real estate agent has started the process of finding potential renters yesterday. The plan is to start moving everything to my mom + dad’s, keep most things in boxes, so that once that permanent residence card to Canada comes in the mail – I’M OUTTA HERE!!!! I don’t want to have to mess around with moving + finding a renter right before I leave for Vancouver. Yuck. I want to be ready, y’all. Ready.
Plus, I’m trying to wean myself off of coffee, so it’s been slow to say the least. I just do one small cup in the morning + regulate with tea in the afternoon. It makes one feel like they have a styrofoam helmet on their head + took a pill that comes in a container that says, “do not operate with heavy machinery” on it.
But, let’s just say: listening to Dusty Springfield while cleaning + organizing = good. As I was purging the condo, I looked around + became really sad. I love my condo + my neighborhood!!! I’m going to miss it so much!
Oh, look at my sweet Megumi taking a snooze!!!! She matches my decor. How appropriate. Heh heh.
Yes. Another picture with Megumi in it. Now don’t say it all at once, I know! I’m lucky I have Jeff or I would be “one of those costumers”. I could be happy with a million animals running all over me + then a neighbor would report me to animal protective services. Yes, thank god for Jeff.
Tonight, I finally watched, “An Officer and a Gentlemen”. I don’t know why it’s been so long because I LOVE movies from the late 70’s/early 80’s (note: only early 80’s!!! No John Hughes or Brat Pack for the love of god!!!)! And I LOVE Debra Winger, even though she can be a little annoying + whiny. Richard Gere is pretty swoon worthy, even though he has teeny eyes + I got really excited watching all the military exercises. I want to go to a boot camp! Louis Gossett Jr. plays the gnarly drill sergeant + I kind of wanted to be like him. Is that weird? I must admit, I got all girlie during the love story parts + cheered in the end. Oh, earlier in the week I also watched, “Sophie’s Choice”. I guess it was early 80’s film week for me. I’ve seen it before, but I decided to torture myself for a second time. Why???!!!! WHYYYYYY???!!!!!! I can’t even get into “Sophie’s Choice” because it’s too depressing + beautiful + you’ll just have to find out for yourselves. Now I realize why I hadn’t seen it a second time. Sob.
On a happy note, in the movie Kevin Kline is very handsome + charismatic with a very dashing moustache!!!! Cha cha cha! Oh, Meryl….sigh!!!!
