Over The Hump Day

I forgot to mention that on Sunday night my husband popped in his DVD of Peter Gabriel's Secret World Tour. It is thanks to this concert that our engagement was delayed. And that's okay because I think the resulting story is more romantic than what my husband first had in mind. One of these days I'll probably get it down on paper. We've told it so many times it's part of our repertoire. I found the DVD today on a pile of DVDs so I guess he is going to sell it. While I wouldn't like him to he's free to do it. After we'd been married about three or four years he started selling off some of our DVDs and I got mad at him because he included DVDs I had picked out or that he'd bought for me as a present. We have so many DVDs I can't keep track of what we have. It got even harder when he arranged them into the two categories of ones we'd seen and ones we hadn't seen. At one point he arranged them by director's name instead of title and I flipped out. I have a better memory for titles than I do directors names. It got changed back to titles pretty quickly.

I woke up at 2:30am trying to get rid of my stomach contents which wasn't very much. I called in sick to work then. Mainly it's my back that's achey now.

Isabella Rossellini won't be coming here in March after all. I suppose that's a good thing because I don't know if my heart could take it. I was reminded of that because her former maid, Lucyna Turyk-Wawrynowicz, has been found guilty of grand larceny, forgery and identity theft. She said Grace Hightower was mean but Isabella always treated her with well. There are just some celebrities who seem to have the complete package. John Travolta, my main girlhood crush, would make my heart go into palpitations also.

Jennifer Pelland has noted the SLF is launching a mentorship program. I don't know if you need to be a member or not. Information can be found on Jennifer Pelland's LJ.

I always liked Isabella, what we she supposed to be there for?

She wrote and acted in a short movie about her father called My Father is 100 Years Old which Guy Maddin directed. Guy will be here and the stories he's shared about him and Isabella are a hoot.

My husband read my LJ and made sure I knew that he wasn't selling those DVDs. He said we've run out of room once more and he has to figure out a new system.

Psst! My last name is "Pelland."

Doh! I corrected that. Just last week I saw something about Ann Landers' daughter and thought it said, "Ask Mango" not "Ask Margo".

Ah, so that's who Margo is!

And I do the same thing all the time. And people do it to my name all the time. I see "Pellard" "Pellan" "Pellano" "Pellant"... It goes on and on. And people do crazy things when pronouncing it, like calling me "pell-AHND" (as if it's ethnic or something), or worst, "PEE-land," which makes me feel like the bathroom at Disney World or something.

Whenever I do it a lot I think it's time to get my eyes checked again. It's been about 10 months but I'm not willing to say it's that time.

When my last name was 11 letters I had a lot less typos than now with 6 letters because people hear it and think they know how to spell it. Even when I spell it out for them about 25% still get it wrong.

I think it would be neat to ask Mango a question just to find out the answer. I always loved that skit on SNL.
