Like Sands Through the Hourglass
Yesterday I announced I’m going to start a series on my blog and I gave you a clue. Rather than finishing the first post in the series I got to spend some one-on-one time with my sister today. It was her last day in town and she’s heading back to Orlando in the a.m. So, I thought I’d at least give you another hint. Click on the question mark.
As for my sister and I, we had fun today. First we went to Pete’s Fish & Chips. It made me happy to see that no matter how bad the economy is Pete’s is still hiring.
This is the cute mural they have along their adjacent wall.
Then we went for pedicures. Really, she sat next to me while I got my toes done. At the nail salon we went to they had this green sculpture that oddly reminded me of the big hunk of kryptonite Richard Pryor gave Superman in the third movie.
I’m not one to watch soap operas. Actually, I hate them. Nothing says “bored housewife” like Young and the Restless. But nail salons always play that kind of crap and today Days of Our Lives was on. I’ve never seen the show before. So, let me get this straight… Sami finally accepted E.J.’s marriage proposal. Makes sense I guess since she’s apparently the mother of his children… but she didn’t tell him she was pregnant originally, for whatever reason. Sami is actually in love with Rafe though? She doesn’t want to announce their engagement until Will can be there? (Yeah, there’s a marriage that’s going to last.) Stefano freaked out and left the restaurant (where he was supposed to meet Will) because Chad was pressuring him for answers about his mother’s past. And Hope is in jail for murder – or a string of some other crimes – and she originally tried to frame Arianna.
Phew. Sounds like there’s a lot going on. I bet if I tuned in six months from now Sami and E.J. won’t be married yet and Chad still won’t have any answers. At least that’s the way it worked on Y&R. Yes, it’s true. I used to watch it long ago. Don’t tell anyone.
