I'm spatial ... sooo spatial ...

(Points for identifying the mis-quoted song.)


I had a challenging day.

I was challenged by depth perception.

To celebrate another year of life on Earth, I went downtown to have a massage (at Dosha – ask for Tracy) – using a gift certificate from my boss. (Thanks, Boss!) The salon is in a nice hotel called the Hotel Monaco. (Lots of cool chaise longues in the lobby, perfect for lounging, although I wish we could just spell it lounge instead of longue, already.)

I have successfully navigated the tight exit of the Hotel Monaco underground parking before, my agent as my witness.

This time, as I got in my Momivan, the valet said, “That turn is pretty tight there, want me to pull it out for you?”

“I’ve got it,” I said.

I drove forward, steering confidently. Then I scraped my right bumper, said a bad word, reversed, and drove out of the Lilliputian exit. I imagine the valet enjoyed the echo of my ‘I’ve got it’ while he watched the spectacle.

The rest of the day was nice. I planted lots of flowers, then my husband and son made me dinner. We had cake for dessert – it was so pretty, with tiny real flowers on the top border. I carefully moved the cake off the table so the dogs wouldn’t be tempted to get it … losing my grip just as I reached the counter.

It’s still edible. My husband flipped it back over while I laughed and screamed, gently replacing the frosting … all the tiny flowers now buried.

Oh, it's all okay. I'm laughing.

My husband already pushed out the dent, and you can hardly tell I bashed the bumper. He's so handy.

Oh dear. The poor cake. But it still looks yummy!

Happy Birthday, dear Lisa!

That cake looks absolutely delicious, even without any flowers. I'll come by your house and eat it for you! ;)

Chrissie Hynde, no?
Happy birthday! Half of everyone I know, it seems, had a birthday this weekend. The good half, of course. :)

If you're not learning Rock n Roll in high school, what are you learning? ;-)

I gotta have some of your attention, say The Pretenders. Happy birthday!

Thanks, Jody! Another Pretenders fan. :-)

Count me another Pretenders fan!

Happy Birthday, Lisa! Hope the exit mishap didn't undo all the good massage vibe. And hey, that cake still looks delish.

Happy birthday, Lisa!! Spa and all, sounds lovely! Funny stories :-) Glad the cake was still edible!

Funny thing about "chaise longues" -- years ago I was talking to French friend, who told me what they call these long chairs in France: "relax"! I blinked and told her what WE called them: chaise longue, and we both started cracking up.
