In my last post I made reference to two shows I’ve been watching a lot of as of late: True Blood and Six Feet Under. Both shows are created by Alan Ball (whose other big accomplishment may be writing American Beauty) and both are interesting in their own ways. Read the rest of this entry ?

Will I be flying back to Edmonton for the event? (Which according to my facebook sleuthing seems to be two events – one for the so-called cool kids which I *wasn’t* invited to, and one for the rest of us.)
The answer, of course, is no.
Had my grandmother died two weeks later, maybe I’d be going. But even by being in Edmonton the same weekend as the event(s), I still don’t know if my sense of curiosity would be enough to draw me out.
Early this morning, as I sat watching the latest Star Trek movie in a theatre full of people even nerdier than myself (many in costume), my grandmother passed away.
Yesterday afternoon I was informed her death was imminent. The staff hoped she would survive until the next day when my father was set to arrive, but it had been too long since she had last eaten – she just couldn’t hold on anymore.
I had a birthday lunch with a friend today. (His, not mine.) We went to Denny’s where you get a free meal with the purchase of two drinks and an entree. For the price of an orange juice, I bought him lunch. (His idea, not mine.)
We’ve been friends for a couple years now with pretty significant ups and downs, culminating in the reason I never see him for more than a brief lunch… a baby. (His, not mine!) The child has been a blessing in disguise – The drama which surrounded our lives when we were close is now over and he’s just a doting dad. While our friendship will never be what it was, maybe that’s a good thing.
As we sat there over his breakfast slam and my giant burger (which prompted many “that’s what she said jokes” as I tried to stuff it in my mouth), he looked at me and said, “You look happy.”
