I had eggs benedict for dinner last night. It was delicious.

Also, I set up an auction on Runetotem that will make a minimum 200 gold for Heriotze...since someone already bid the minimum. Celiyne is pretty much the auction house staff for the time being.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] brilligspoons should watch her mail, since Jay is mailing her prezzie for me today. Figure it'll take a couple of days to get up north.

This is the entirety of what I accomplished yesterday. Which means I have much to do today.

I have to sort through all my camping gear and see what we need for this weekend (a cooler, for starters). We're going out to dinner and then to pick up anything else we might need, including patchover food for Mudflap since his fancy pants prescription food, which I bought on SATURDAY and was charged for on MONDAY shipped on WEDNESDAY. It's annoying not living near a vet who carries it, but they're all farm vets out here.

Also, we have to get the apartment tidy since Killian will be coming by this weekend to feed the kitty.

I read part of one of the Gnomes books by Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen before I went to sleep last night, which is the mental equivalent of giving yourself a cup of cocoa and a snuggle. I loved those gnomes so much when I was little, and I was really amazed when I looked them up on Amazon and saw how much more material they'd put out that I never knew about.

One of the books I bought used is autographed by Poortvliet. I don't think the seller realized that, or they would have sold it for a LOT more.

All of you who get to work from home when you need to: do you remember what it's like to have to drag your ass into work on 5 hours sleep when you're sick and achy? I kinda hate you guys a little right now.

I haven't been camping since Quest 2007. Three years ago! Oy.

Tonight will be prepping the supplies I have, doing laundry, and figuring out what I need, which I will pick up tomorrow when the weather is bad. Also spending some quality time in RFC with [livejournal.com profile] brilligspoons. Who is getting a prezzie. Which I am picking up after work today. Because she is awesome.

I need a userpic of me in Markland/SCA garb. I would SO never wear a corset while camping. Probably.

Date night on a miserable rainy night with a nearly-but-not-quite healed lump on my head = takeout sushi and catching up on TrueBlood. Lovely way to spend the night with my honey.

Friday night is 80s night at QXT with Melissa and possibly my bro. More people should come.

Saturday Justin and [livejournal.com profile] dagdalorijane are coming over for a WOW day.

Sunday is Midsummer Faire with [livejournal.com profile] dagdalorijane and [livejournal.com profile] cosmic_hiccup.

Jay's grandma thinks I'm pretty. :D

I was sick yesterday with the heartburn that ate Tokyo, and I figured continuing the sleep deprivation of the last few weeks would only make it worse, so I stayed home and slept till 2:30 or so. Then I got the Burning Crusade (finally), so should I want to, I can make a Drannei. I soloed King Mukla in Booty Bay and made level 43, then decided my headache was bad enough and signed out. I really need new glasses. Spent the evening snuggled with Jay and watching Burn Notice, then took some Benadryl and went to bed early.

I'm currently reading The King's Grace, because everyone who reads Elizabethan fiction eventually moves on to Henrician.

Rewind to Sunday:
Breakfast with Jay and Melissa at the country diner. Maybe I shouldn't have had the potato pancakes? But they were so good!
Jay and I returned [livejournal.com profile] fatherdog's car to his house, then drove up to Waldwick for the mass family birthday party. Thanks to turnpike traffic, I missed my mom's cousin OC (Owen Charles). Still had a nice time with the family, and Jay cut through all the Dell bs to get my aunt's internet and wireless printer up and running. I cook, he networks. We are useful couple!
We stopped by Wanaque to pick up some more stuff from the apartment, but it was 8 PM and I was exhausted, so we didn't get as much as we could have. Picked up my lil coffee pot, though. Now I just have to get some white vinegar to clean it.
Also, Sunday was my birthday. I am officially 29 and proud of it. Thank you everyone who wished me a happy. Got a couple of nice lil prezzies, but more importantly, people kind of made a fuss about me. I like fusses when they're happy.

Got up around 10 to drive out to Clinton for an 11:30 oil change...which the owner never bothered to inform his mechanics that he had scheduled, so let me tell you, they were THRILLED to see me 30 minutes before close. But, it got done. Then we went over to WalMart and got a couple of camp chairs, and stopped for sushi lunch before going home to shower and play video games.
Melissa came by around 4 and we hung out till Dave showed up around 6, and then we went to Ewing for a Bear Tavern party & BBQ. It was madness on par with the usual. Objects of interest were a cute baby, a broken rusty trampoline, a pair of agitated mini schnauzers, a moth, cookies, Dancing Bill, and a pile of cushions on the floor. I laughed till I hurt, which in retrospect may have contributed to the evil, evil heartburn, but fsck it. Also, if you own hentai and get married, your spouse now also owns hentai and needs to accept that. Photos/video if I get them.
Got to see Aaron before he moved away to Seattle, so that was bittersweet.
[livejournal.com profile] fatherdog got drunker than I've seen him since college, so after putting some water in him, we decided to drive him home and call it a night.

Went to the Red Rooster Grill in Flemington with Jay and had a lovely fancy-pants dinner. The place is Zagat rated Excellent. Om nom a nom nom. Then we went to see Potter. I understand why the detractors don't like it, but honestly I was perfectly satisfied. There is also already some good fan-parody out about it. It is kinda weird how ripped Rupert Grint is. His biceps are as big as my head.

Tonight's plan is to visit with Travis and Kelly for a bit, and give Kelly some of Flap's extra things that Jay and I don't need anymore now that the kitty has only one home.

I'm leaving for Cape Cod in about an hour. I don't know how much time I'll have to be online, so I may not check back till Tuesday.

Temp agency always comes through for me. It's really outside what I would normally do, because there's some overnight travel involved. But maybe it's time to take a step outside my comfort zone. The company helps get child support paid, and that's something I have very strong feelings about. So maybe. They submitted my resume today.

*begin nutshell*
Leafstone called me today. They want my updated resume, and they may have a receptionist gig in the works for me till I move. I'm not getting my hopes up, since they haven't yet performed for me at all, but hey. Any help is good. Meanwhile, I'm working on samples for my brother's business.

So I think I'm going to make eggs Benedict tomorrow. Have I ever made Hollandaise sauce? Why no, no I haven't. Nor have I separated an egg since the fifth grade. Let's see if it's like riding a bike for me.

Weight it dropping slowly, a few ounces a day overall. Good thing I like step aerobics.

Jay bought me new sneakers. He's so awesome.

So, as most people who read this blog know, I'm not into St. Patrick's Day. Thus, the following story is hypocritical, but I'm ok with that.

I found out a few weeks ago that my mom was not going to be doing a St. Patrick's Day dinner. Can't really blame her; it's a lot of work for a Tuesday night. So I wanted to make a reservation for me and Jay at Thatcher McGee's, which is a marvelous Irish pub about five minutes from my house. But they wouldn't take reservations. Irish pub. No reservations. For St. Patrick's Day. So at noon the day before I decided, damn the torpedoes, I'll make it myself.

I should mention at this point that I've never cooked meat before, and most of my culinary excursions amount to boiling water and putting sliced veggies in a pot with some olive oil. Tasty, but still. Even a bugged-out chimp on Xanax could do it.

So, the plan was as follows: 2.5 pounds (smallest cut I could get) of corned beef and 3 pounds of baby red potatoes roasting in the oven, and a head of cabbage and a pound of baby carrots in a pot on the stove. Did the corned beef come with the requisite seasoning packet? Why no, no it didn't. So I had to MacGuyver something on the spot.

Justin had Karen over, so it was dinner for four.

The results? Well, all I have left is half the veggies and three potatoes. Dinner was DEVOURED while the cats sat begging on the kitchen floor.

That's right. I have discovered, at 28, that I can cook.

Had a good hair day today. Weather sucked. It was snowing and raining when I left my house this morning. Met up with [livejournal.com profile] neil1701e in New Hope, where there was NOTHING TO DO. We got some food at Frank's Pub and, after a breif walk revealed that most of the shops were closed and there wasn't a Rider-Waite Tarot deck to be had in the WHOLE DAMN TOWN, we decided to head down to Marlton instead. Watched the Jo and the Boys (and the Guys) concert from April 2001, behind which Neil was the mastermind. Man, that was a fun night. Tormented Ernie, the family cat. We then met up with Neil's friend Marty for dinner at a Family restaurant. Marty is my kind of jerk. Left around 9:00 PM, got home around 10:40 PM. Damn do I drive fast. Caught up with an old friend via infernal cellular device on the way.

Later gators!

take the psi-q psychic test yourself
