Stone (And) In Love

2008-02-15 - 1:19 p.m.

Hope you all had a good Valentine's Day.

I did finally make it to the Park. It was VERY crowded, and not just with Valentine couples - evidently a whole bunch of people had passes to stay an extra hour after closing. Since I didn't, I headed out with the rest of the "ordinary" people.

But I DID get a new pin. They had a new limited edition "birthstone" pin for February, so I picked it up. It features Tinkerbell and a small amethyst, and it's really cute. I don't usually do cute, but's my birthstone. I even tracked down an Aquarius pin (that one features Ariel - appropriate for water-bearer) from a few years ago.

Some things you gotta do, even if they are cute and silly.

And yes, this is what the title (with the added word) links to.


Speaking of which...

Brin has suggested - numerous times - that I do a Friday Five. Well, since the well is dry, here we go:

Do you ever wonder if the way you see things visually aren't how other people see them?

Sometimes. I tend to pick out shadow-patterns and look for why light does things.

What kind of sounds are the most annoying?

The screech of brakes, and teenage girls screaming in mock-fright. Yecch.

When walking through a store, do you shop with your hands by touching/feeling the texture of things?

Sometimes, yeah. I tend to pick things up and look at them, then put them down.

If you could only smell three scents for the rest of your life, what would they be?

That's a tough one. Fresh air, fresh flowers, and the scent of something savory cooking.

What sorts of things do you savor when eating them?

I tend to eat quickly - comes from a lifetime of short lunch breaks - but if I go to a restaurant I've never/seldom been, I will try to savor a bit more.

Matter of fact, I may be having lunch with an old friend I haven't seen in a long time. Not sure where yet. We'll see if the old habits are too strong.


Okay, onward into the day. I have a few things to do today, including a stop at the PO.

And the gig, natch.

Be seeing you.
