If you've got the poison I've got the remedy

This weekend D and I celebrated our 10-year anniversary. I came across pictures of us the year we met and we look shockingly young. I, Mint Chutney, was once 23 without a wrinkle on my face nor a trace of a toddler's breakfast on my shirt. For the big anniversary extravaganza we went for a fancy dinner AND a movie. This place was so fancy they had cloth napkins and served sorbet to cleanse our palette before the entree. Unfortunately by the end of the night my stomach wasn't feeling well. D decided THAT'S why he doesn't take me for fancy meals; my stomach's not used to such fine cuisine and he wants to spare me the abdominal distress.

We saw Transamerica. (Take one guess who got to pick the movie.) I liked it a lot. Felicity Huffman is phenomenal as a pre-op trans-sexual man who meets the son he never knew he had. The weekend before we saw Brokeback Mountain which I thought was a sweet love story albeit in a fairly weak plot. D asked if I was getting a discount from GLAAD to support all the Oscar nominated gay-themed movies out there. OK up; Capote.

I think I've taken procrastination to an art form. I'm so behind on a particular function of my job yet I still can't muster the energy to get going. I was so incredibly restless today. I needed to reset my mind and body but for the life of me I just couldn't. Today I felt an emotion that I loathe; disappointment. In the end I realized I wasn't disappointed in anyone except myself.

Happy anniversary Mint and D! Wow, that is fancy, palette-cleansing sorbet. I've only had that once in my life.

Can't get Transamerica here, dang it!

Hope you clear the rut soon. Hugs.

Procrastination to an art form? Lol! Well, if it makes you feel any better, I do that too!

Oh no Mint Chutney, do not be so hard on yourself. You are one great woman with all you accomplish and an inspiration to all those working single women who one day want to start a family. :-) And you make time to blog!

Congratulations on your 10 year anniversary!

Okay, the getting a discount from GLAAD comment is pretty funny. :-)

Happy anniversary!!!

Don't worry too much about the procrastination stuff. It usually means that a boost of energy and/or motivation is right behind it.

Happy 10th Anniversary!

(If you were gay that'd be the equivalent of 50 years...)

I can't believe you made him watch a movie about a pre-op transsexual as part of your celebration!
