weird how things work out....last night before going to bed, I told the cat not to wake me up at 4:30 wanting food. my power went out at exactly 4:26 and the cat was nowhere to be found. he was hiding out from the 30+ mph winds and monsoon gushing down from the August heavens and the leavings of Fay. I tossed and turned until 9:30 when I finally awoke completely after several 30ish minute naps. I went to work and thankfully the power was on there.
finally, power returned around noonish and I was cool again. funny how we can miss things so very easily.
yesterday was a lark - full of photography doings and then going to see Tropic Thunder with some friends. the movie was better than I expected and full of bathroom humor as one might expect with the cast. I didn't realize Tom Cruise was in it or I might have missed it (I have a ban for Tom going). he was wonderfully vulgar actually - as arrogant as I would expect him to be - maybe it was the part written for him.
I got nothing accomplished that I wanted done today....there is always tomorrow. keep your fingers crossed I can take off Friday for a four day weekend.
