glorious Saturday

For a brief moment, I could feel the beginnings of spring today. The sun was out, the sky was blue, my sunroof was open, and there were plenty of people driving around with their convertible tops down. For that last thing, I was a little jealous. I cannot wait for this interminable winter to end. Granted I know it's only barely March, but I'm done with cold for the year. I want at least one more day like today that I can enjoy. The hour before the sun went down that I could revel in it was not enough. Stupid work. I'm sure that in a few months I'll be begging for cold weather again. I mean, this IS Texas and it WILL get crazy hot. But for now, I'd like to order some warmer weather please.

chef mouse

Good Lord, I am a cooking machine! Last night I roasted a pork loin in the slow cooker and shredded it. Today I carmelized onions, combined them with the pork and 4 different cheeses to make a killer mac and cheese. Then to top it all off, I made cheesecake brownies for a kid at work whose birthday was yesterday. Yes, I'm an idiot. But damn it felt good!

How not fair that when it snows in Dallas, I have the day off. Let me rephrase: how not fair that when work closes early for the day and everyone gets an extra day off, it's my day off. Oh well, at least I didn't have to drive in the slushy mess. I didn't even have to go to the second job tonight. I was hoping to lie around and numb my brain with the boob tube. No such luck there either. All the snow is caked on the dish so I have no signal. Really? It's cool though. I watched the last little bit of Dead Like Me. What a fantastic little show. I can't believe they cancelled it after only one season. I wonder what George is doing now? Anyway, I guess I'll go make another pot of tea. Enjoy your snow day, friends!

Geaux Saints!

Granted I was rooting for the Colts. The reason I gave the men tonight? I like horses, and colts are cuter than saints. Yes, I know I'm a dork.

The man and I actually had our first real date this year last night. We went out to Campisi's, and he ate waaaaaaaaaay too much garlic. I mean, how long can someone burp up garlic smell? Let me tell you, you don't want to know! After that, we went and saw Up in the Air. It was better than I expected. It was also much more depressing than I expected. ***spoiler alert spoiler alert*** When he left everything behind and went to Chicago to find the woman, I knew what he was going to find. What a bitch! Man and I talked about that a little; she never truly lied to him. Ugh. Made me really despise her character. I think that was the idea. It was a great date though! After that, we came home and I went pretty much straight to bed.

Today was a nice lazy day partly due to sniffles and antihistamines. When I was asked if everything was alright due to my constant sniffling and nose blowing, I gave up and took some chlorphenarimine. Shortly after that, I took a two hour nap! Then it was sitting on the futon watching Law and Order marathons before we headed out to watch the game with friends.

Now, it is time for bed since my alarm will go off at 5:30am. I may or may not get up for the 6am yoga class, but the alarm is set. Tomorrow is a 2 job day so I may just sleep in (until 7:30 if you can call that sleeping in). =)

tgif night

And not much left of Friday night!

I'm sitting in my office, listening to Massive Attack from the other room, contemplating things. I think I might be too tired to be reasonable. I worked for about 11.5 hours today between the two jobs. Hmmm, just noticed I still haven't changed my calendar to February. Hang on...done. It can now officially be the second month of 2010 in my house. Sheesh, Valentine's Day is sneaking up quickly. I've already spoken with the man about not wanting to do anything spectacular. I really think it's just a silly Hallmark holiday. Nothing but good old USA commercialism at its best. I'd much rather have someone show me they love me little bits at a time throughout the year--not just once on some day when there was a historic massacre. Restaurants have their specials, but the waitstaff will just want to shuffle people in and out as quickly as possible so they can make more money. Flowers are extra expensive--granted, the man has yet to ever buy me any flowers. Last year we stayed in and cooked and watched hockey (if memory serves me). This year...who knows what will happen.

All that being said, I often wonder about things. Tonight is not one of those times. Haha! Fooled you! One last item for the post: How do you catch a special rabbit? Unique up on it! Yes kiddos, it's time for bed.
