Father's Day & future plans.

Why I love my Dad? That's simple. Because I can tell him secrets I haven't told to closest friends or to my mom. Because he is the least judgemental person I have ever met. Because to anything stupid I have done, he would only say: "I thought you are too smart for that." and thus made me strive to be better. Because he always understood when I had those stupid angsty teenage thoughts. Because he taught me to laugh at the world and at myself. Because he never told me what to do, and never shot down any of my plans or desires, he would only give his opinion and advice, but never made my choices for me. Sometimes I hated it, wanting a simple answer, but he made me think for myself, and thus made me independent. He taught me to relax, and stop, and think quietly. Finally, he is one of the wisest AND most inteeligent people I have met.
Dad, you are the greatest, and I love you!

The dinner was a success, even though they run out of trout and my mom & me had to go with salmon. Still, tasted good. However, the vegetables were horrible. I haven't found a more fitting word for steamed vegetables than German "gemüse". That word is so unappetizing... and this squash, broccoli and carrots looked just as unappetizing. Though I ate the carrots anyway. It's hard to make carrots inedible, or maybe that's just my inner rabbit. Pinot Grigio (this one was by a California winery) is a pretty good wine... However, I would love to get a bottle of Aligote. That's a Moldavian wine, and that was the first non-champaigne wine I have ever drank, many years ago in my Grandma's house...

I liked the new shoes and dress I wore. For some reason, the left shoe fits tight, whereas the right shoe is perfect, but that's OK. I didn't have far to walk in them. The dress has one thing that might be good or bad, depending on the occasion. It shows more of my breasts than is sometimes appropriate, especially if I sit down, bend or lean. Well, I'll see. Still, it's a nice silk dress. I think I will take this dress & shoes to Florida with me. I need to find a cocktail dress now.

The designated "nice pumps & cocktail dress" shopping day will be June 27th. I am working every day between now and 26th. June 26th is Omaha's Annual Summer Arts Festival downtown, so I am going down, I don't think I have missed a year since I came... I might buy something. Especially since I want new jewelry, and my amethysts would cost $800 to set in 22K gold in the design approximating the one I want. I think I will wait a couple years until I can afford that. I would hate to set such gorgeous stones into a measly 18K gold. As far as 14K or, God forbid, 10K, that is not gold, and doesn't deserve to touch my skin. So I want some jewelry... I haven't bought any for myself since I bought the amethysts in March, and nothing for a long time before then. I only bought a couple brooches for my mom...
