Potpourri…

Is that how you spell “potpourri”? Does anybody know?

1. I love yogurt. It is my new favorite food. I’ve eaten I don’t know how many of those Silhouette yogurt cups since I returned west. I ate them a lot before, too, but now, it’s an obsession. Not good. But, I guess it could be worse.

2. Did I mention that I love my new I-Tunes phone? That makes 2 obsessions.

3. The 26 days of rain ended yesterday. It only had to rain until tomorrow to set a new record. It true competitive style for me, I was very disappointed to see the sun on Saturday morning. That is pathetic and rather silly, but, records were made to be broken. Just two more days of rain! That’s all I wanted!

4. I’ve seen three movies in the past week. A) Cinderella Man – Good movie. Good acting. Good inspiration. Nothing unique. B) Memoirs of a Geisha – Too much packed into too little tie. Great acting. Weird accents (the lead sounded French at times…). Beautiful cinematography (I believe that’s the word) and soundtrack. C) Brokeback Mountain – I have to digest this one. I’m not sure what to think. It didn’t move me as much as I thought it would. I also found it a little long and tedious at times. Maybe I’m just cynical.

5. I have a “tea date” with a 60 year old Sikh security guard who does the night watch at the new building down the street. I was walking home from the bus tonight when he started talking in much fractured English. I had to decipher what he was saying, but he nodded his head frantically whenever I understood, so it wasn’t that hard. He asked questions about me, what I did, where I lived. And then we exchanged names. He shook my hand. And he wouldn’t let go. He kept looking at them, feeling them (creepy – yes…). He finally said, “You rich?”, meaning, “Your hands are really soft and smooth. You’ve never done an honest day’s work in your life, huh?” To which I responded, “No. I just teach. I don’t use my hands in that way.” He then said that he would make me Indian tea sometime. I agreed. He then hugged me and gave me a kiss on the cheek and said, “May you life a long life.” It was really quite sweet. You just never know who you might meet during the course of a day.

And with that it’s off to bed. Another busy week is about to begin. I can feel the snowball starting to roll down the hill!
