It's The Second, Now 

Category:   This-n-That

Today was my parents' anniversary.     I should have called them either very early (before they left for church), or right when they returned home from church this morning . . . but, . . . today was just one of those days, that I can't make any excuses for my lack of consideration, other than it was just filled with hectic -- yet mundane -- tasks, errands and chores that occupied most of the day.     I finally called my parents and spoke with my Father at 10:00 p.m.     What an inconsiderate child I am to wait so late!     I told him that "at least" I called before midnight, so it was still "technically" their anniversary.     [nothing like the amazing surprise party that I threw for them two years ago!     I planned it for months (it was their 50th), and all their friends were in on it.     I managed to coordinate it from 8-1/2 hours away (with the help of one of their friends), and we had a huge celebration with friends and relatives.     And, they were really surprised!]     What a horrible only child I am; especially when they tried for so many years to have me . . . and I don't give them the proper consideration on their special day.     Yes, I'm feeling a bit guilty over my lack of consideration.

In addition, today was filled with a lot of mundane activities.     My s.o. and I ran errands that included him picking up supplies for his new business, while I shopped for groceries.     We also stopped for lunch at Ruby Tuesdays, and stops at several stores for this-n-that.     It was just a long afternoon that really felt like walking-in-wet-sand.     Nothing moved at anything over a snail's pace, and the grey, dreary day didn't help, either.

I had plans for the day which didn't really materialize.     I needed to switch all of my information into my Franklin Planner for the new year -- didn't happen.     I needed to work on a couple of articles for some jobs -- didn't happen.     I did DVR the premiere of Henry's Film Corner, with Henry Rollins that debuted on IFC at midnight Saturday night.     I watched it this afternoon.     Some may already know, I'm a huge Henry Rollins fan -- aside from his music, I've seen his stand-up routines, and read his books . . . he is an amazingly articulate and intelligent man (with a great body, too).     I'm a big IFC fan anyway but, now, with Henry Rollins in the mix, I'm totally hooked on the channel now.

I did read my horoscope for the new year.     I'm just hoping that the "change of residence" was just a hiccup that I managed to achieve last September that, possibly, wasn't supposed to occur until this year.     Or, the whole thing could be a major crock'o.     Anyway, here's what it had to say:
Scorpio in 2005 - Transmutation
Scorpio, you can still expect changes - perhaps major ones - in your life this year, almost to the point of total transformation.     While this is most apparent in the area of your career, you'll see it showing up in other important aspects of your life.     Your life might take on an entirely new direction you've never dreamed of.     You may also change your residence during the year.     Whether you start the year as a single person looking for a partner, or you've been married for many years, happiness in love does lie ahead.     Be prepared for new horizons.     They may not be familiar, but they will be fascinating.     Don't cling to the banks; instead, flow with the tide in 2005.

Can we say totally G-E-N-E-R-I-C?

Enough of all of that . . . I'm off to bed.      Perhaps I'll be more productive tomorrow!
