Adventures in Eyecare )

In adventures of the shoewear variety, I found new running shoes! Not perfect but at this point I'll take what I can get. I haven't been running in a month because of it. I hope I continue to like them. Nope!

Other than that, I found a nifty patterned shirt, mostly grey and yellow, to add to my collection of awesome clothes which could also be upholstery. Also, pants.

Oh, and the newest Kasabian and a not-so-new Death Cab for Cutie.

My very best news is that a thing that seemed to be wrong with my car is not wrong at all. The suspicious noise was being caused by the jack in my trunk, unsecured after my flat two weeks ago. I was seriously thinking of buying a new car rather than put more money into this one, but I will put that off a little longer now. I hate being rushed into that sort of thing.

a dream and costumes )

My worst news is that I still haven't found running shoes that I like, and have not been running for two weeks. And I can tell the difference in many not-really-awesome ways!

I had leftover roasted chicken. So! Tortilla pizza! A flower tortilla spread with ricotta, topped with thin-sliced tomatoes, avocado, cooked spinach, roasted chicken, feta and mozarella. Baked at 375 until I felt like it had accomplished something, then broiled a bit. The tortilla held up nicely. I was too timid with the feta and it should have had some kind of garlicky element (not actual garlic, I am never slicing fresh garlic again ever), and in the end I piled my slices with extra avacado, spinach and feta but after that? EXCELLENT. I wanted mushrooms but forgot them. Black or kalamata olives would have been amazing. Next time I will put strength of the tortilla to the test!

Yeah, that's it. If you have suggestions for improvement I welcome them!

EDIT: I have found that mixing the ricotta with garlic powder, salt and parsley (does the parsley actually do anything? or just look pretty?) before spreading, then liberally applying all other ingredients greatly improves flavor. Also, optional mexican blend cheese rather than mozarella.

Oh, and I had another good run. Rufus Wainwright's Want One surprisingly good for running, or perhaps that's just because I love it so much for all its epic ways. Now for PT, shower, IT Crowd and restless sleep! Hair appt in the morning!

My life, she is magnificently exciting.

One Mile!

Well, maybe like 9.5/10ths of a mile but I didn't know the distance while I was running (I drove it after), and I could have/would have gone another .05 miles had I known, so. IT COUNTS.


I know this is not really impressive. We were supposed to be able to run a mile in highschool. Minimum! But I never did. I never tried, and I never cared. So. Huzzah.

Oh, also, Aphex Twin Come To Daddy EP ftw. I've been looking for something as good for running as Demon Days. Mr. D. James comin' through for me.

I usually run time not distance. The bike trail has mile markers but I usually just run at home and I don't like going to the trail alone. Tonight I went to the industrial park, then drove the distance. 2 miles altogether, walking and running, and slightly more than the last half mile running. I was pretty pleased! I'm sure I've run farther than that before the most recent neck episodes, but I had never measured it.

Was a bit wobbly in the thighs by the time I stopped. Now I'm pretty tight between my shoulders. Hopefully nothing.

We all know by now that by "running" I mean jogging and not speedy race running, right? Okay. Just checking.

I should just say now that I'm in love with the Mighty Boosh and may never recover. I'm so excited about it I can't even talk about it except to say how excited I am. It's ridiculous and adorable and there's singing. It's like my own little warm wacky breast upon which to rest my head and feast on the androgyny. It's nice. ^ ^

(Note to self: need Boosh icon.)

In other news, also slightly in love with my PT guy. I may kidnap him and keep him in my basement.

(Note to self: build basement.)

Yeah, that's it.

Oh, except that I've been banned from swimming by aforementioned PT guy. Bother.

Have been working on this post for a few days and have been too busy to finish! I shall try to be brief!

First and foremost! The kitten, whom we've been lovingly calling "Jiffy Kitty", went to the vet yesterday, was neutered and poked and all of that, and went to his new home last night. A friend of a lady at work.

PT and swimming )

Movies! Old and older. )

Mad Men and a couple of Classics )

And having nothing to do with ANY of that, for some reason I can't remember (apart from the fact that she's awesome), I decided to introduce the Captain to Gilda Radner via Nadia Comaneci! She's still cute! I had not seen this in years and I was breathless. She was brilliant!
