A tin of mini joints! yay mmj!

I went to “my” dispensary, Harborside Health Center, in Oakland, CA this morning and the 45 minute drive from where I live (Fremont) was really easy. Sometimes it’s awful.  I drive up 880N on the east San Francisco Bay area going up to the Bay Bridge to “the City.” The freeway leads to a zillion other places, too.

The drive can be a bitch. I wouldn’t go near it during rush hour! But it can develop big problems at any time. I think all of this is like any other big city and it’s surroundings.

The freeway (what do you call it? Highway? Motorway? Autobahn?) I pretty scary in places there are very narrow lanes, and lots of places that have no shoulder, some epically bad merges, and more trucks than you can shake a stick at! For a long time it terrified me to drive up there. Now I know it inside out. I actually enjoy it. It clears my head. It’s also probably the most exciting place I ever go!

Today I bought a lot of mini joints.

Big joints or cones or blunts are just too much for me and since it’s medicine, I don’t share it with anyone. nobody wants to light up something you were smoking before and put out. Yuck! I came across these mini joints are perfect for me or anyone wants to smoke a joint by themselves. The cute tin is great for carrying them somewhere else you need to take your medicine. They’re also a really good deal. They’re 1/4g. The tins cost $40 and hold 12 mini joints.

So! Time to talk about movies. Last weekend my huz and I went to see Valerian. The eye candy was gorgeous. It was very creative and the best special effects I’ve seen in a long time. The girl who plays Loreline is Thea from Arrow. That was a surprise. I like her character on Arrow, so I liked her right away. She’s hotter than hot and loves to show it off. I was very surprised that Valerian was male! For some reason I thought he was a girl. Doh!

I’m only talking about surface things because it’s still me and I won’t give you any spoilers.

Atomic Blonde is out now. I adore Charlize Theron and slick action films are hardly deep, but they’re fun to watch. I have a feeling I’ll be going to that alone next week!

This weekend we are celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary! One of the things we’re going to do to celebrate is to see Dunkirk. It got great reviews and it’s my very favorite subjects! (I have a b.a. in British history.

Tonight, as a beginning of our celebration, my husband brought me a s’mores sundae. It had real toasted marshmallows on top, they were even kind of burnt, as they should be! We’re going to have a special dinner, but I dunno what. We don’t exchange gifts, he has everything he could ever want, I just got a new phone from my dad, I don’t really need anything. We share the money so what’s the point? We do fun stuff instead!

On the upcoming Tuesday I scheduled 3 doctor’s appointments! Is that mind-blowing or what?? Who has that many doctor’s appointments?? I had to postpone one and I’m going to the other two because they are both psychiatric. I’m seeing my therapist and going to group. The third appointment was in the same department, but it was just getting started with a doctor who runs an acupuncture and meditation group. I can’t wait to start that, though!

I will be seeing my psychiatrist sometime next week, too! Can you tell I’m feeling crazier than crazy? I’m trying to keep myself out of the hospital.

On that jolly note I shall say gooodnight, at least for the moment.

going to the movies

I have mentioned many times how often i go to the movies, and mostly alone. I’ll see practically anything, just to go to the theater.

I have a handicapped parking placard so i get to park right in front. I use my cane because it’s kind of a long way from the lobby to the theaters. I always get the same seat. C15. i have to be on the aisle. The theater i go to is the only one i’ll patronize. The seats are like huge soft recliners that sometimes makes me sleepy when i’m seeing a film just to be at the movies. I kind of like seeing films like that so when i have to get up to go to the bathroom,  it doesn’t matter much. I have to pee 2 or 3 times during a movie.

That’s because i get a giant soda and suck it down fast, then refill it. They have those Coke machines that have every possible kind of coca cola product. I usually get ginger ale with a fruit flavor in it. Sometimes i have diet minute maid pink lemonade with sprite zero. Once in awhile i’ll get popcorn, but you get so much and then i eat it all even if i don’t really want to. Gah!

I love sitting in the dark. The films are very loud and that makes me feel free sometimes. The seat i mentioned that i always get is pretty close to the screen, that way it’s always free, no one else is  ever around there. I can kick back and be hidden in the cold, dark theater. Unless i’m a dodo and forget to wear a long sleeve shirt or a flannel. If i remember to dress warmly the cold is nice. I love air conditioning! I have it on at my house now!

When i come out of a movies when it’s over, i feel like i’ve come from a vacation. I refill my massive soda and head out to my super hot car.

Yay! I saw the new planet of the apes movie yesterday. I went with my husband. I think he’s really happy that i like going to the movies again. (there was a very long period of time, years and years, that i didn’t ever want to go to the movies.) He loves them too, just not quite as much as me!

Have a lovely sunday! Relax or play! Sleep or swim! Eat or go for a walk! Read or watch a movie! Pet your furbaby. That’s key. 😀
