Sorry about the lack of entries last week… I had a friend in town from high school, and there were some festivities surrounding that and, frankly, less one-on-one time with the computer (which can be really good for me). The highlights:
1.) deciding not to attempt to cook and just go out or order in every night.
2.) having an out-of-towner agree that, yes, our unplowed roads* are shitty!
3.) sending a country girl onto the light rail by herself.
4.) catching up with an unlikely crowd of high school friends, looking back and realizing what a long time it’s been.
Not among the highlights:
1.) The drunk hostess — damn, what was she thinking?
Anyway. There was that. I was, um, the drunk hostess. I haven’t really had much alcohol since June, and, well, I kind of let loose. It was miserable in the long run. I can do some really idiotic (but human) things.
And speaking of Human Thing(s), I get to see the Be Good Tanyas next Monday, and I’m really excited about it. I love their new album, and I think it’ll be cool to see them at Cervantes’… which I’ve never been to, but hear is pretty small. I really think it’s interesting the way my knowledge of music has changed. Anymore, I buy the songs online or hear them on the radio… It’s rare I have a good idea of what an artist looks like. Which makes the concerts all the more exciting.
My sister is making a grapefruit rosemary reduction. To put on halibut. She’s even going to share with me, and all I have to do are the dishes. Life is pretty good.
*note: roads were plowed yesterday.
