So, things don't really suck these days.

I love when people at work ask me:
"Didya have a good weekend?"
Because then I can answer:
"Of course! Have you met me?"

Sure, it makes me sound a little bitchy, but I really do have good weekends, pretty much all the time.  This year's exceptions being when I am sick or injured.

Anyway - so this weekend I:
  • Tried chicken and apple sausage. I was sure I would hate it. I didn't. I liked it. Yummy.
  • Met up with two friends for some martinis very last minute, but so glad to see them and spend some quality time with normal, caring people.  The friends in my life do not suck.
  • Took my coveted photo print thingy I bought from BK (Blue Girl's talented offspring) to a frame shop. Very excited about my background-mat-thingy that is red and matches part of the photo, and the gold washed wood frame that brings out other colors. Pricey to frame, but soooo worth it.  Plus I know someone at the frame shop, so I got a deal. Of course I "knew someone", this is Chicago. Every has either "got a guy" or "knows someone" just about everywhere.
  • Painted my finger nails blue. That is how I roll. A shade of blue that also matches the above mentioned photo.
  • Spent a very awesome evening with John and Toni and a couple of John's friends. Might be an interesting development coming from that evening. We'll see. "We'll see" is also the theme of the development.  I will surely keep you all posted.  But as of right now, this is all coming at me out of waaaaay the fuck in left field, so I need some time to process it and let it play out.  Once there's something actual to tell, I will!
  • Went to bed at 4am on Sunday, and was wide awake at 8:30 am on Sunday. I can still hang.
  • Was completely useless on Sunday - to the point that I spent the entire day watching all of my dvr'd shows.  Shit, I watch A LOT of summer t.v. programming.  Help me, I'm turning into my mother on that front.
  • Purchased all of the ingredients for a dinner meal dish thingy that I would like to make and eat. Then, the temperature went way way way up, so no cooking in my house for this week. But I'm excited to try to cook something, and will do so as soon as it's ok for me to use the oven/stove top whatever!

Yep. And it isn't coming down much at night, which means it's super sticky humid. That gets to me.

P.S. You know how I spent the weekend...with the camera!

I'm making my favorite dinner in the whole world tonight. Marinated Lamb leg steak, seared on both sides in a HOT pan and finished in the oven, onion/mushroom/almond cous cous and steamed asparagus with Hollendaise sauce. Yum!

I worked this weekend, but it was lovely. As far as cooking goes, I'm on a Middle Eastern food kick- I made a bunch of falafel from scratch (just needs to be shaped and fried, and popped into a pita with some lettuce), and will be making hummus, and tahini with yogurt to go with it for the whole week.

B4 - I'll be right over. Sounds excellent.
Mikey - make a note, when you finally do cook for me, remember I'm allergic to all tree nuts. And watermelon.
