Here is what I’ve been up to the past while.
Thursday and Friday were spent in all day seminars about current legal issues we HR professionals face. It was actually much more interesting than it sounds. The food however, was NOT. I did have one of these for the first time in I don’t know how long.
Immediately followed by the realization of why I don’t drink stuff like that anymore.
Friday I got a last minute request to meet a friend for drinks. Since I couldn’t see any reason to say no, I agreed to come out for one. We went to a bar that has a great happy hour, and some pretty danged phenomenal drinks. They make everything from scratch. Ev-ery-thing. They even roast the tomatoes they use for their bloody mary’s. So it’s no surprise then that one drink turned to about six. Four more friends showed up and I laughed so hard that my cheeks cramped. How does that even happen? This was the last I had. A blackberry and peach concoction.
Got home and made a quick dinner of fish tacos, I even remembered to take a crappy picture of them before they were devoured. How nice of me.
Saturday morning I easily talked the man into going to Mexican food. We tried a new place closer to our house and I was sorely disappointed. The chips were good, but the rest was mediocre at best, awful at worst.
Brad’s manly meat filled meal.
Mine was chile relleno and a cheese enchilada. The chile had an eggy, spongy, thick soggy breading on it. Chile relleno blasphemy!
The rice and beans tasted exactly the same and were clearly made using some kind of premixed spice packet. We had no choice but to wash the whole disgrace down with a pitcher of margaritas. They were not shy with the tequila. Perhaps they know their food is disgusting? After walking around in the heat I had a serious headache and once we got home I quickly fell asleep. For four hours. The whole time knowing I hadn’t even started my big final art project. Yeah. I don’t want to talk about it. Once I got up I immediately started my project.
I worked on it for the whole rest of the day and into the night. Woke up Sunday and got right back to work. Made some progress.
I finally finished it and settled in for another quick meal of more fish tacos with a big salad. While studying for my humanities final.
This salad dressing is what we are currently obsessed with. When a teenager requests a specific type of dressing you bet your sweet bippy I’ll buy it. What exactly is a bippy? Where did that saying come from? Anyway, this is the dressing.
Yesterday I presented my art final and got an “A + + + five points!” according to the professor. So there’s that.
Tonight I am finishing my final paper for humanities, then tomorrow is my final exam. Followed by a week off and then the next semester of craziness begins!
