3 oz. vodka
1 T. vermouth
Olive juice to taste
Alas, I cannot locate my shaker, so my martinis will have to be stirred. I put them in a pitcher in the freezer so they can be nice and cold for later!
I also thought, well, I think I'll eat some sushi. Voila! Spicy tuna rolls!
This pic's for Liz--my pink flannel PJs with shoes on them!!!
But that's not all! Today I received two birthday gifts--from my mom, a Kate Spade bag! My first real designer bag! Yay!
And from the lovely, wonderful Poppy--the applegeeks.com RAWR T-shirt! Now we can match!!!! Thank you thank you thank you!!!
Now, I think I will leave you. Since DH is gone I think I will watch the Masterpiece The-a-tah I have had TiVo-ed for a week: Henry VIII with Helena Bonham Carter as Anne Boleyn! Can I be any happier right now???
Have a great evening, everyone!!!
I'd considered kittens, but, as I walked down the aisle, I spotted a 3-year-old, beige-colored tabby sleeping in one of the cubbies next to his litter box. A closer inspection showed that he was a bobtail--my beloved first cat Bobbi was a bobtail--and I immediately requested to see him.
A short time later he was brought to me in one of the "Get Acquainted" rooms, and when they put him on the bench with me, he immediately got into my lap, put his front paws on my chest, closed his eyes and started purring. I knew, right then and there, that I had found my cat. Or maybe he had found me.
In any case, Joey has been my constant companion for the past six years. He greets me at the door when I get home and goes to bed with me at night--he usually lies next to me while I'm reading, and leaves when DH comes to bed. He loves to play with raffia, and, since he knows where we hide it, on the weekends he'll go to where it's hidden and meow and meow for it, begging us to drag it on the floor so he can chase it.
Joey tolerating my photo-taking last night....
I've been grateful for the six years we've had together. I hope to have many more years with my beloved Joey. I still want to clone him, though.....
There are purple velvet shams behind the green ones....you can't tell very well in the picture.
Joey loves the new bedroom decor!
On my quest for better eating, I found these great little nutrition bars. They're called Larabar, and they're made from 100% raw ingredients, no added anything, good carbs, good protein, and they are damn tasty! I have tried the Cashew Cookie and the Cherry Pie (which tastes just like it, matter of fact.) The photo has the Apple Pie one (in the green wrapper,) but in my quest to save a co-worker from getting breakfast out of the vending machine, I sacrificed that one. Now, if you buy one, don't let the look of the actual bar scare you. It looks kinda funny, but tastes REALLY GOOD.
I get them at Kroger, but I think they are available at Whole Foods and nutrition stores. You can order them online, too.
Well, I'm off, to go home and watch Battlestar Galactica tonight! DH will probably watch it, but will most likely be playing with his new XBOX 360 that he got this morning. He's so damn excited--it's kinda cute.
Naughty Naughty Pets is a collection of children's stories about--what else? Naughty pets. I found these books at Half Price Books a while back and laughed my head off, especially at the one about Kiefer--a black cat who likes to leave "presents" for his owner.
Warhol's Desserts is a collection of drawings by Andy Warhol of different desserts. It's very colorful and whimsical, but after viewing this calendar I wonder why Warhol was such an influential artist. Do you see the proportions of that cake stand? In reality that stem would snap right off! Hell, I could draw that! Still, I think it's fun, and since I love desserts, well, I couldn't resist.
Now my cube is decorated by two very colorful, very whimsical calendars. I'm usually drawn to more "serious" calendars of photography or scenery, but this year I thought I'd shake it up a little. I'm happy that I did.
