weekend 3-way: high point, low point (yes, again)(updated)

I ain't got nuthin' else (channelling Zach Mayo)

So, high point, low point! Last 24 hours.


high point: Dropping the kids off at movie night, they're happy and we're happy, a nice big window of mommydaddy morphing into jacquie and bill time. we decided to see a movie, negotiated throughout the day and after comparing listings and run time with our window of opportunity, we narrowed it down to the wrestler, doubt, the reader, or gran torino. I nixed mickey roarke and his creepy yellow hair, bill vetoed the holocaust and catholic scandal, so we headed out to gran torino!

low point: Sold Out.

Oh, Jacquie, really? That's my new low point.

high point: I went to another Friday afternoon high school swim meet with my girl Nancy and watched her boy, my susperstud godson, tear up the pool. Along with his studly teammates. These kids are good. Elliott was pure poetry in motion as he won the 100 back.

low point: The diving was excruciating. The swimmers (well, some of them) are better than we were in high school; the divers are worse. Backwards progress. It took forever, and, well, they stunk.

Next Friday: East Lyme High. Bring it on, Vikings.

high point: Having a strawberry-banana smoothie and toasted sesame bagel delivered to me while still in bed. At 8:55 AM.

low point: Being woken up on this rainy Saturday morning for the first time at 6:12 AM.

Readers, Lurkers, Friends.... tell us your highest and lowest points from the last 24 hours...

Oh, and Jacquie? I think the exact Zach Mayo line is "I got nowhere else to go."

are you sure he didn't say "blah, blah, blah" ????

High Point: Bought new clothes (all on sale) and new shoes (not on sale-but worth the price).
Low Point: Had to leave the purse I've been coveting behind.

High point: the 20 or so seconds after the bartender put my icy martini in front of me Saturday night.

Low point: the 2 or so hours in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep.

High point: Getting my picture taken with Bert Blyleven at TwinsFest.

Low point: Standing outside in negative degree weather for 30 minutes prior to the doors opening for TwinsFest. I had to sit down inside for about 10 minutes as I regained feeling in my fingers and toes, because the stabbing pain made me feel like I was going to barf.

High point: The nice glass(es) of New Zealand sauvignon blanc on Saturday.

Low point: Sunday night's attempt at cookery...I'd burn the recipe and kill the cook, but I'm the cook.
