come closer, i can't see you...

first of all, it must be noted... that i really cannot see right now. somehow, somewhere between getting home last night (when they were on my face) and taking them off... and getting to work this morning... my glasses are NOT in their case. every time i take off my glasses, i put them in the case in my purse. that's where they GO. i got ready for bed, brushed my teeth, put on the glasses that i keep on my nighstand, read a few chapters, then went to sleep. i'm at work now, and the glasses case is empty, and i have no idea where my glasses are. imagine me, if you will, with my face stuck up close to the screen, and you'd have it about right.

cut off my arm why don't you?

yesterevening was pretty entertaining. i had dinner at blue fin last night, and after spending a little bit of time looking at the images on their website, thought that i'd be in for a fancier evening. it's in times square for crying out loud, who knows WHAT i was thinking.

i like to have a good time with waitstaff...waitpersons... whatever you want to call them. i've had that job before, and really, there's usually nothing better than getting a friendly table that tips well... in a sea of not awesome. so i like to be the fun table... i include said waitperson in our conversations, ask advice on random issues, and generally rib whoever is serving my food. i'll even stab at your hand, for example, if you dare to try to take away my plate of beets before i am finished. our waiter last night was pretty playful. excessively bushy eyebrows, mind you, but a pretty fun guy. he was clearly on my dinner companion's side of things as our conversations progressed. they teamed up against me. but that doesn't matter... it was a good meal. and then, the greatest thing happened. as we were looking over our dessert menus, the waitperson (i wish i knew his name) leaned over and fourth finger caressed the top of my menu asking if i "saw anything that i liked". he did it subconsciously... because when i looked up and said rather loudly DID YOU JUST FOURTH FINGER CARESS THE SIDE OF MY MENU WHILST ASKING ME IF THERE'S ANYTHING THAT I WANTED!!?, he turned every available shade of red. it. was. AWESOME.

we went to see be kind rewind after dinner.


easily one of THE most amusing movies i've had the pleasure of seeing in a looooooooong time. jack black and mos def make a pretty believable comedic duo, and the story and plot were ridiculous and charming all at the same time. if i had four thumbs, i'd put them all up in the air for you. go see it.

and then go enjoy your weekend. it's play time, people. do it.

I know what you mean. I feel like I set something down, and all of a sudden it disappears. Poof..vanished. What normally happens with me is that my cats have knocked it under something. Maybe your glasses are under your bed or in a couch cushion. You never know.

Hope you have a great weekend!

Thanks for the happy thoughts. I am FINALLY starting to feel better! =)

see, the problem is that i NEVER do that. i'm so methodical when it comes to stuff like that.
which is why i'm completely baffled right now...


i'm totally going to check under my bed later though... just in case. :)

im picturing the scenario right now.. and its pretty hillarifunny. :)

be kind rewind - ok, ive been wanting to see this movie for quite a while now and im glad you said that it was good because the only people that i know who've seen it (zach and tamee) said that it was dumb. we tend to have different movie tastes, but i think you and i are fairly close... so 4 thumbs for that.

So he pointed at the menu with his ring finger? That's weird.

dactyl said...

k - he didn't point... he ran the tip of his ring finger, with his middle finger tucked a little bit up, along the edge of the menu... back and forth, back and forth.

it was very odd.

Karen said...

Dude...that is weird enough that I would have called him out on it too.

Clearly, that's what he wanted to do to your vagina.
