|02:30 pm - And I've been asking everyone I meet, what is love.|
Hoppie is damaged. He injured his ankle on his way to work on Friday. It's hard negotiating our schedule with his injury. I don't really know why it affects me. I know the solution is to return to making lists of the things I have to do and bring to wherever the hell I have to be next, but it feels like a sign of weakness. On the other hand, it beats the hell out of compensating for my forgetfulness later.
Andy and Meredith gave me a refrigerator. When Paul helps me drag it into work later, I'll post the pictures from the weekend. At least we got to stay in this Friday. Rocker was boycotting outside because his father had more of his stoner whore friends over, and they like to paw through (and take) Rocker's stuff, which for some reason Rocker finds irritating, so he was presiding, dragon-like, over his hoard. We couldn't have gone out anyway. I needed to bake Derby Pie (for legal reasons, called Maker's Mark Chocolate Pecan Pie, but we all know what that means, Derby Pie, yum!) for brunch on Sunday. I made my first ever non-alcoholic Derby Pie (which I suppose for technical accuracy we can call Chocolate Pecan pie.) I didn't try any, but reviews state that the pie was edible.
We saw Hoppie's parents for the first time this month. They're going away on hoppie's dad birthday trip this week, so that's exciting for them. They gave us tomatoes, summer squash, green beans, and green peppers, so that's exciting for us. I'm going to make gazpacho. Because I can. And you can't stop me, muhhahahhahhahahhahahahhhahahaha. I'm going to hit a farm stand either tonight or Wed for the rest of the ingredients. The tomatoes need a bit more ripening.
Solies wants me to post a poll, but he didn't give a topic.
Thoughts on gazpacho
Why not just have salad?
Why waste the tomatoes when you could be having SALSA!
...take it away and bring it back hot.
Summer gazpacho soup is one of life's most sublime pleasures.
I'm a bit frightened by the idea of turning you lose with gazpacho soup as a topic, but there it is.
Mistress Mary, quite contrary, how does your garden grow?
with silver bells and cockle shells and pretty maids all in a row.
with hot peppers, cucumbers and tomatillos all in a row.
with tommy guns, and atom bombs, and submachine guns all in a row.
with snakes, and snails, and puppy dog tails, and little boys all in a row.
with sugar, and spice and everything nice (all in a row).
with pears, and peaches, and blackberry sneetches, and apple trees all in a row.
So how does your garden grow?
Do you think I'm getting enough sleep?
Why is this suddenly all about you? Don't I matter!
Do you think I'm getting enough sleep? Why or Why not?
Well, fine, then, be that way, are you getting enough sleep?
Thank you. That's better. None of your damn business.
What do you use M&Ms for? (Solies finally came across with a poll question)
I eat 'em straight up!
Baking! Yummy M&M cookies!
In chocolate bars! AM&MAZING!
In little gift bags of candy in carefully chosen colors.
M&Ms are for sharing
I just like the cool dispensers they have.
What do you use M&M fors that I haven't thought of but might be able to use to my advantage?
And last question, what do think I should poll about next time, should there be a next time...
Solies: I just posted, but tomorrow I'm posting a special solies just for you.
Solies: Of course I won't be in tomorrow so I probably won't post it.
Me: ... (pathetic look)
Me: (redoubles patheticness of look and starts to whine)
Solies: Oh fine. Remind me and I'll mail it home to post tomorrow.
Solies: Just don't do the fluttering eyelids thing again. That's scary.
Current Mood: tired
Current Music: The Johnny Seven - Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps
About my last answer for future polls. It could get a lot more specific than just cookie preferences. For example you could do an entire poll about the Oreo Cookie varieties.

I had meant to comment
but with all of the polls I forgot by the time I got to the end of the post.
The general concensus seemed to be that the non-alcoholic pie was better than the one with alkyhall, although both were excellent. More chocolate is good :)
