Man Oh-live, I'm Doing Twenty-five

  • I WANT to write something here every day, but I am not.
  • The sun is shining, my demeanor isn't.
  • I had a "mystery meal" for lunch. It had pork, and onion, and milk, and allspice, nutmeg, and cumin in it. I have no idea when I made it, nor how long it's been in the freezer.
  • My little brother got a job today *throws confetti*
  • My BIG brother is sending me a bottle of wine to taste. It is from his friend's winery. I cannot wait to try it.
  • I made this chicken dish for dinner back in January (or maybe February). I was going to write about it.
  • I have been gone, or had company constantly since Dec. 26th. I was really excited about being home alone "for a long time" until my trip to Arizona in March. I am crap at keeping time. The last of my company left 2/16, I leave 3/4.
  • Between company and traveling, I have hosted four dinners at my house.
  • The Rag├╣ Bolognese I made for my dinner group on Sunday from this blog was amazing. (as is the blog and her writing and photography!)
  • I joined FaceBook under my real name. Who knew I'd recognize so many childhood/school friends. My but we were a (small) and close knit group.
  • I also belong on FaceBook under MitMoi.
  • I am struggling with my writing class. I guess that's good. It means I have a lot to learn.
  • I got my haircut on Saturday. She styled it slightly different. It looked cute. THIS is what it looked like when I tried. :|
  • I am crazy and have agreed to cook an "Ocho de Mayo" meal for 150 people. I will be using two days of vacation time to accomplish this feat.
  • A friend from Paris, France is coming to visit me in May!!
  • I am going to the St. Lawrence River in New York at the end of July.
  • I don't know if I'll be doing ANY business travel this year. This is very, very, sad for me.
  • Sunshine coming through the windows in my clean house makes me happy.
  • I wish I were playing hooky there right now.
  • Yesterday, when I was in an equally foul mood and told Jason, "Nobody likes me, I think I'll eat worms" he sent me these three links to make me smile. Only the first one made me truly smile. (ps: People like me ... I'm just not liking a whole lot of people back at the moment.)
  • I helped out a friend recently. It makes me feel good every time I think about it.
  • Another friend I haven't heard from for a while got back in touch. He says he's doing better now. I hope so - and that life treats him well.
  • Heather and I share daily eMail correspondence. Not much, just a line or two. Her comments make me laugh out loud on a regular basis.
  • My home laptop is FINALLY (3 repair visits for one orginal problem) fixed. HALLELUJA!
  • There was something else I wanted to say, but I've forgotten.
  • This is the cake I made for Valentines. Matzo Flour, Almond Meal, Lemon Juice, Lemon Zest, Lemon Curd, and Raspberries. It's kind of like sticking your tongue out at love. (tart, sour, and blowing raspberries)

Yeah! Laptop is finally fixed again.
For 150 (150) people!
I always like you, even on the days when you're not liking me. We all have those. xxox

OH! and I LOVE LOVE the hair! I'm cutting my back tomorrow, I hope it ends up looking half as cool.

MitMoi said...

THAT IS not what that comment was about.

I know, crazy about the 150, eh?

Can't wait to see the haircut.

Elisa said...

So, can I friend you on Facebook? ;)

Hair cut looks super cute! Tart looks scrumptious. Your travel schedule makes me feel very very tired. You're quite vigorous!
