Crazy-fun night, oh my god how I laughed, ouch. Kim and Susie (here with Nathan), two of the funniest people on the planet, came for dinner. Our goal was to actually do some work – ha! – on Feminine Hijinx… Our soon-to-be podcast! Of the three of us raving various subjects together – the concept…

Wake up! Turns out, not much of a problem today. That coffee – the real deal – that I happily drank at Susie’s yesterday? Vrooom, powered me through damn near the entire night. I’ve mentioned before that I’m off caffeine, for exactly this reason, but once in awhile I indulge. Usually, it’s fine. But usually…

Here’s Suz, cooking chili today, she invited me over for lunch. Woo hoo! It was delicious and so cozy. With biscuits, and lots of coffee (of course). A little chat for dessert. I had – what else? – polenta (!) to contribute, so we had that too, and it was nice with the chili, even…

Good start to the week. Got Nathan to school on time, stopped for gas and a car wash on the way home – in my pajamas no less, I am amazed by how crazy-daring I’ve gotten about running errands in my pajamas. With a winter coat over them, of course, but still, there are my…

Had lunch with my friend Chris today, at Kafe 421. What is it about me forgetting lunches at Kafe 421? I damn near did it again, but luckily Chris called ahead of time, so once more I dashed off for Dinkytown looking like a hungover college student. Not even that good, because a college student…

Cooking this afternoon, while A does her homework and John quizzes her. Nice, to have them in the kitchen with me. Little music, little wine, little garlic. Had a good IM discussion with Susie today strategizing potatoes au gratin, inspired me to make them too! She’s doing roasted chicken with rosemary, pancetta, and balsamic. I’m…

Haven’t posted for a couple of days – minor crisis here on Wednesday night, I was thisclose to wrapping up a post, when John and Nathan realized our dog Sigmund had disappeared. Sigs, or Roo as we call him (pictured here), is an old guy now – 13 years old, almost 14. He (almost) never…

Oh, I think it’s snowing, cool, a reward for all this dark cloudiness today. GLOOMY. I’d rather it were this day… Fourth of July, fireworks, with Susie, Sullivan, me, Vivian, John, and Stacey (Cory’s snapping the pic). Ah, it was a spectacular night, after a spectacular afternoon of bike riding for John and me. Warm,…

As I struggled to drag my butt out of bed this morning, I laughed at how completely NOT moderate I’ve been this weekend. Oops. Despite my best efforts to take only a few bites/sips of this and that, it all added up to p..l..e..n..t..y of food and wine. There’s nothing wrong with any one of…

Great night, we had such fun with John’s colleagues and their spouses, Clark and Cindy Opdahl, Scott and Beth Hagel, and newly-former/much-missed-already colleague Tom Ting and his wife Erin. Or as Tom’s now known, TT, or Traitor Tom. Awww, poor Tom. I don’t work with him, but I know the only reason anyone’s giving him…
