Ok, Alex'a new meds keep making him fall asleep. Any suggestions for what to draw on his face?

I should probably be doing EVE stuff or M3, but it's a way too perfect day to read a book and lie on the couch after work, so I am.

First, it was wonderful!

But, when you're dressed to the nines in your tux, and most men you see are in regular blazers, you think you're a little overdressed.

When a guy sits down next to you in a Batman Beyond t-shirt and jeans, you are really overdressed.

Just saw a flyer for a re-enactment group dedicated to preserving "the proud and honorable traditions of the East German border guards. "

WTF

Since we had to hit the grocery store anyhow for the chili cookoff, Alex and I decided to get some various oranges to try out the juicer attachment for Sir Mix-A-Lot.

Conclusions:

1: Damn, it takes a lot of oranges to make a little glass of juice.

2: I really like the cara cara oranges. Really sweet juice!

3: Regular navel oranges have a much tarter juice. Almost sour.

4: Cleanup was really simple.

Really fun! We'll need to buy more oranges.

I also bought and seasoned a cast iron Dutch oven to make the aforementioned chili. It's been a big kitchen day despite me not really cooking!

Wooooooj!

Locking down a table for quiz night at the pub. Made calls to gather a crew with mixed success, but I'm optimistic. Looking forward to seeing if I lost my edge or not. :)

Uh oh.

Since I've shocked, like, 8 people this week, I should mention for those who haven't seen me lately that I've grown a beard since Novemberish? Just kinda started, people complemented it, so I've decided to keep it around for now.

One of the interesting things about LJ is now and then you get people who you have no idea why they started reading you.

I'm not sure why echobunny likes me,therefore, but I'm glad she does. :)

It's been fascinating reading as she makes the tweaks and adjustments to find more balance and control in her life. I love her idea of pretending to be something you want to be (neat, responsible, sane, etc) to help you learn to do it.

She's always been encouraging when I talk about needing a boost, and enthusiastic about ideas.

She also lives in one of my most favorite cities ever, and yet somehow we never talk hockey. :) Maybe it's to prevent me from doing too much anti-sens chirping. ;)

We both share a love of Halloween, and she makes a great zombie. (Between her, Megan, and Marty, my FL is 29% undead by volume!)

And just to top it off, she is Hellacute. Yay!
