When the world hands you lemonade, take the day off school. Fantastic words to live by.

Yesterday I spend twelve hours on an R&B music video shoot. I tried to get involved, but after a predominant Halifax R&B star keep making eyes at me, and another keep touching my tattoo, I decided to make myself scarce. I found a corner to sit in, put my head down and proceeded to knit the day away. I did have to go on set every now and again to watch grown men dance all sexy like, while wearing mink jackets and no shirts. I almost put my knitting needles into my pupils.

So, today, after being sassed at in a production meeting, I told the crew I felt gross and skipped out on the day. Walking away from the set, my eyes were welling with tears. I am just that tired.

Fear not though, I decided to take matters into my own hands. What started as a craptastic day turned into one of the best I have had for a long while. That fact that it was a sunny day helped tremendously, and that people in this city are fantastic. A special shout-out to BFF for wasting her lunch listening to me whine. In a matter of a couple of hours, I managed to clear my head with a walk, stop in on old friends that are taking measures to make themselves happy, enjoy a delicious sandwich&salad lunch, buy myself a new comic book, and master the natural blush-coy-droopyeyelids routine. Then I whisk myself home to curl up with a good book. Just when I thought it couldn't get any better, I come across the following:

So, dear world, I have the next week or so booked solid, and I am so sorry, but it does not include you. I will be back soon.

Are you experimenting with another language and learning the days of the week? For some reason, your posting of the last few days are headed by weekdays in a forieng language that I do not know...maybe swedish or something. Anyway...no time was wasted at all. I enjoy your company...in all kinds of moods. Oh yeah...great supper! thanks for spurging with me. (is splurging a shopping lingo word? What is happening to me!!!

The language learning is so I can travel to far off destinations with the circus. Dinner was fantastico! Tasteless tea, crazy candy, beautiful ballgowns. All in all, a good night was had.
