Have you ever played Rummikub? GREAT game. In high school, my friends and I used to go to our favorite coffee shop (JJ's) all the time and play Rummikub for hours and hours. Seems like I can never get anyone to play with me anymore, but after a little badgering, Seth finally agreed to play. Sitting in the sun, listening to records, and playing my favorite game...not too shabby for a Sunday afternoon...
It took about an hour, and now I've got this cute box to keep all of my little office-y knick knacks in. You know, all my page flags, my post-it notes, my tape, my binder clips. Have I mentioned that I love office supplies? Love them. I don't know how anyone gets along without them. Here are the instructions if you want to make one, too (if you click on the picture, it should be big enough to read the text):
Well, I guess that's about it for now. I'm gonna go try to block out the bad country music that my upstairs neighbor is blaring. Ruby is not a fan.
1. Every time I go into the bathroom, I look behind the shower curtain to make sure there's not a killer hiding behind it.
2. I love doing algebra. If you handed me a high school algebra book and told me I had to work through 100 problems, I'd happily do it.
3. I can't stand feeling things on my face, which is why you'll probably never see me with bangs, lipstick, and especially not foundation makeup.
4. I'm a very nervous rider in cars. I always feel like the person driving is about to get in a wreck, so I tend to gasp allot (and sometimes scream). It's a problem, I know :)
5. I think it's really fun to listen to JT, Britney, and JLo, and I don't care who knows it.
6. I can't stand soggy bread (biscuits & gravy, pot pie, chicken & dumplings - I've lived my whole life in the south, believe it or not!). I also can't stand grits, and I think it's because they remind me of soggy bread.
And there you have it! I guess that wasn't so bad. And actually, here's one more tidbit for ya:
That's right, I was the school mascot in 5th grade. That's not really weird, but it sure makes me laugh :)
But then I found it in unexpected places, too. Like my water cup!
Yesterday was the Superbowl, but for the first time in years, I didn't watch it. Not because I'm anti-football or anything, but because I really didn't care about either of the teams playing (Colts v. Bears), and I had the opportunity to hang out with 3 pals for a "girl's night" instead. It was so much fun, and the 4 of us managed to polish off almost all of the amazing food that Stacy had scattered around the house...burritos stuffed with things like saffron rice, pineapple and black beans, fancy cheeses and grapes, hummus and pita, apples with Nutella (YUM), pumpkin soup, cupcakes, two kinds of chips. It was quite the spread, and so delicious!
I don't regret skipping the Superbowl. I really needed a night to hang out with the gals. The only thing that threw me off a bit this morning was that I didn't get the laid back day on the couch with Seth that I normally do. Routine is more important to me than I'd usually care to admit, and that time on Sundays recharges me and prepares me for another week in the cube. Tonight my parents drove 3 hours just to have dinner and hang out with us for the night (how sweet is that?!), so the couch had to wait. But you better believe that when tomorrow night rolls around, I'll be on the couch in my flannels by 5:30 :)
I swear they get cuter all the time.
Pretty amazing. Sure, it took 6 hours, some epoxy, and a bottle of wine, but it turned out great! And, it was actually fun. It felt good to be challenged and accomplish something.
Can't you just see the sense of accomplishment on our faces?! Or maybe that's just delirium. Happy Friday, everyone!!
