Well, crap. I just got all stupid and clicked on a link that made my entry go away.
So anyway. What had I said? Hmm. Oh. Mindy and I got Japanese food today and it was awesome. This Japanese place where we went has this big vat of stuff called “Yum Yum Sauce.” They charge you extra if you order carryout and want more Yum Yum Sauce than the little plastic vat they give you. Its ingredients are allegedly a big secret but it’s sort of mayonnaisey and has some pinkish-red stuff in it. Probably babies, I think.
I am leaving at 4:30 today for an Appointment (and by Appointment I mean “basketball scrimmage”) and then I am taking tomorrow off and then Thursday is Thanksgiving, woo. And then Friday I get paid, WOO! I have ambitious goals for the weekend which involve consumption of alcohol. I don’t have to be back until Monday.
Next weekend I am going to Charlotte with Mindy to visit Boss, where we shall consume more alcohol and probably buy stuff.
The weekend after that was supposed to be my business/pleasure trip to Albany/Rochester (and how I combined the two is a feat of brilliance that requires its own entry, except not really) but that has been postponed and I will be taking it right after New Year’s instead.
The weekend after THAT is when my Christmas vacation starts. Working in higher education rocks, y’all. Except when it doesn’t.
In the meantime are many holiday-type dinners and feasts and food parties and such, where I shall gain about forty pounds and blame it on a pregnancy. Also in the meantime are basketball games and my parents’ 25th wedding anniversary.
So I’ve been fairly busy today getting a bunch of mailings ready for my assistant to work on tomorrow while I’m out. It’s a job that requires a lot of waiting so in the meantime I’ve been reading archives of Tomato Nation and listening to Launchcast.
Hey, here’s what’s on my Launchcast station as of now. I know, I know, some of it is really lame (and I’m looking at your pretentious pseudo-rock asses, Counting Crows) but that’s not the point. Here’s the list:
Belle & Sebastian
The Dandy Warhols
G. Love & Special Sauce
Goo Goo Dolls
Red Hot Chili Peppers
Stone Temple Pilots
Tears For Fears
Yo La Tengo
Los Amigos Invisibles
Now. I love music and I’m always looking for new stuff. So use my comments to suggest some. That would be awesome.
I’ll probably be a little sporadic for the next few days, so let me wish you all a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday right now in case it’s a while before I get around to writing again.
