DW tells me that I was chosen at random to recieve some paid time! To be honest, I was paid at first, but then it lapsed and I just didn't bother because I've been at LJ so much. But it's nice to have my icons back!

The most exciting news I have otherwise is that today is my Friday and I've got the next 4 days off.

Also, I bought my mom an aloe plant in a pretty pot for Mother's day. (I'm also going to buy her some silverware. LAME?)

Finally, I look forward to strawberry cake.

Friday I went shopping with a friend and Kohl's had If You Give a Mouse a Cookie plush mice, and the profits go to charity. This was one of my favorite books as a kid! And I still love it. And while I bought him for my neice and intended to buy the book also and give her both, I have been snuggling him since.

I might have to buy another.

Otherwise, we (the Captain and I... and the mouse) watched the first episode of Carl Sagan's Cosmos, prompted by the nifty Symphony of Science songs/videos. We will be continuing the series!

Somewhat related, worked with my nephew on his science project. Was not as awesome as it should have been.

Now to do some things I've been meaning to do.

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.

I watched The Brothers Bloom the other night and I'd quite like to cuddle Adrien Brody until the end of time. This is really not a new thing, though.

I'd like to read a Boosh!fic in which... Egypt! )

I'd like for my Future Sailors and Darkplace dvds to arrive tonight! (By Royal Mail! To be delivered by gents in armour with crests riding white horses with plumes on their heads.)

I'd like tea.

I'd like to host a big music sharing post but I fear it would just be me uploading a bunch of albums no one wants to hear!

I'd like for Lenscrafters to have my lenses when I go for an exam tomorrow(they never do!)!

I'd like to take Access classes so that I can be a better d-base programmer and use my skills for freelance monies of awesome!

That's enough for now. Except that I wouldn't mind seeing other "things I'd like" posts on my flist!

Funny how it started so simple and fannish and ended up on monies and real life.

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!

Different things!

Largely, all is the same. However, I have started "tutoring" my nephews, a couple of nights a week, which so far consists of helping them with homework plus a little extra. Thursday night I made my first-grade nephew write a two-sentence book report on a Magic Schoolbus book. Hehe.

Am setting alarm early now for extra time to sort out hair before work. I did this to myself, I know. Sometimes I really dig it and love being able to wear it down, other times I think it won't be long before it's long enough for a ponytail again.

The Decemberists last Tuesday were awesome. They played the new album in its entirety... it's kind of an opera, sort of. One big story. Great live. Then did some old songs. Then did a wicked cover of Heart's Crazy On You. Some pics here.

STP last night was super kickass. No surprise that the band was awesome but what a crowd! STP love all around! Heard favorites, and the one I'd been thinking I'd like to hear was the first they played. Sorry they didn't play more of their less popular stuff but no complaints otherwise. Also, Meatpuppets were great. They came on so suddenly and without fuss that at first I thought they were the tune-up guys.

Pics taken by the Captain! )

Oh, and we've been watching Kids in The Hall! ^__^ It makes me so warm and fuzzy.

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.

An encounter while running. )

Totally unrelated, Rogue? The killer croc movie? The Sam Worthington movie? Not as bad as expected. Sam was lovely. Could have had more screentime, though. Could have omitted one or three cheezy lines of dialogue. Otherwise, a mostly satisfying watch! And I enjoy Radha Mitchell.
