So I am going to be making a concerted effort to blog more. I got out of the habit and now I feel like I am not writing enough. So there may be more "state of the union" type posts here instead of stories, but at least there'll be something instead of the tumbleweed that's been residing here lately.
You know, this picture doesn't have anything to do with anything, except I like it, so there. I stole it from the ever awesome GloopyMart. I might start saying that around the house while picking up the kitty, instead of poking her with a pencil which is what I normally do. (You know, while no one is looking.)
So, went to see Jens Lekman last night at Neumo's. T'was pretty great. Even with fools screaming, "You're my hero, Jens!" and the like. I guess it's better than "Freebird!" Jens, she says as if she knows the dude, has a great voice and the show was very entertaining, with backstories filling in as stage banter. And the music is oftentimes soaring, as if one were in a movie. Plus, the adorable Swedish accent that comes through makes one swoon. Highly recommend if you like that sort of thing.
Not so highly recommended is shopping for marine (I know, right?) equipment on my debit card, thank you very much. Some jackass decided that I should pay for his/her purchases and ran my bank account six feet into the ground. I wish I could say, "No, thanks, as you can see from these purchases for
BeardBoy's Companion Cube's upcoming birthday and this very expensive meal that yes, I very much enjoyed, but I did pay a lot of money for, I don't need any help dwindling my funds. But thanks for playing!" Sadly, I do not get to say that. I suppose this is payback for all those funds I extorted from Britney Spears a million years ago. Sigh. As if the jail time and community service I did weren't enough. Damn you, Universe, and your stupid Karma. (Yes, yes, I know it's Dharma, but I don't want to sound pretentious, OKAY?)
On top of that nonsense, do you know that the stupid tournament picker didn't save my picks for anything past the final four? I'm so mad. Not that there's money on it or anything, but dang it that's annoying. As a result, I haven't watched a single game this year! Although I think I will watch the UNC/WSU game tonight. Should be exciting to see the Heels give the Cougs a good licking.
Anyway. So that is going on. Otherwise things are pretty good.
I made more chevre! This time I purchased some herbs de provence to roll it in and also rolled some in pepper and another bit in paprika. I know! So fancy! And delicious, I might add. I think I will bring some to the housewarming party we are going to on Saturday.
PS Guess what? I bought some presents for the Companion Cube! It's totally not cake, but now that I think about it, maybe I should get him a cake.
