So much stuff

First of all, I'm kind of pissed. 2006 was supposed to be the year of big health crises; 2007 is supposed to be all better. Last night during the Oscars, my mom calls to tell me that my niece is having throat surgery on Wednesday to remove some suspicious lumps. This afternoon I get a call--at work--from a friend of a friend. The husband of our mutual friend fell 14 feet last week and has been in ICU, just regaining consciousness yesterday. AAAH! I have HAD IT with this hospital stuff.

Okay, on a lighter note, the Oscars. We had a friend over and watched SEVEN HOURS of Academy Awards coverage. So many hours just to see Melissa Etheridge thank her wife. We haven't seen ANY of the nominated films (we're just getting to 2005's nominees in our Netflix queue; we watched "Capote" Friday night). We did watch an actual movie in a theater this weekend, though. We went to the Saturday matinee of "Reno 911: Miami."

We went to the matinee in the pouring rain. The weather has been wild here lately. It has hailed four times in the last two days. (I captured a little bit of it on video; if it's decent I'll post it to YouTube the next time I download stuff from the camera to my PC.) Then this morning there was an earthquake off shore--5.4 and NEITHER of us woke up! (Okay, technically that's more of a "natural phenomenon" than "weather," but still...)

Oh, I also have a new blog, sort of. Blogger has this feature where you can send stuff from your phone to an e-mail address and they will create a blog for you and then let you claim it later. I finally tried it out, with a picture from my phone (of Stan's computer desk). Here it is: Hopefully in the future I'll send INTERESTING things to it, like trip pics.

I've had the camera phone for almost two years now, but now Stan has one too. After 11 years together, 10 years of joint checking accounts, joint credit cards, joint car ownership, etc., we are now--finally--on the same wireless plan. One or the other of us has been in a contract with a cell phone provider for what seems like forever. Once we were even on the same network for about two years, but the plans were somehow incompatible. Finally last weekend we went to the local Sprint Store and got him a new phone and switched me to a plan that would allow a second user. I think playing around with his phone was what prompted me to use more of the features on mine.
