I found a banana chocolate chip bread mix at Target this weekend, so I made it for movie day yesterday. I added more chocolate chips to the batter. :) I'm eating most of the loaf myself, since Reena and Michelle had only tiny bites yesterday.
I don't understand St. Patrick's Day anymore. All people do is go out and drink. I like a drink once in a while, but just one or two. I'm just not the get sloshed type. I didn't even wear green yesterday - my shirt is in the laundry and I forgot about my tank top.
I finished reading Pride and Prejudice
on Monday night. Funny how one of the soundtrack songs just came on iTunes as I wrote that. Anyway, fantastic book. Reading it in three days, especially since it was my first Austen book, meant I missed pretty much all the important details and explanations. Well, missed or I just didn't remember them. I was at Borders tonight, looking for a book as a sad excuse to also get a Javanilla shake. I almost got one or both Charlotte Bronte books, but I have enough unread books on my shelf already. Maybe I'll start Cold Mountain
Chick flicks are so cookie-cutter. I finally saw 27 Dresses
yesterday, and the general plot was quite predictable. Not that I didn't enjoy it, and the Benny and the Jets scene was awesome, and I so want to steal her wedding, but still cookie-cutter.
Spring break so far has been busy/relaxing. Saturday I got an unexpected call inviting me to the Ostrich Festival, and then I watched movies with Jayme, which I had planned to do anyway. Sunday was church, Green Party at Jenn's (where I played a game called Cornhole) and then Bible study at church again that night. Monday I slept in, though my mind was confused in the morning. After going to various stores, I cleaned the apartment. It was hard for me to relax and just clean, because I felt like I should have been doing more. By the time I adjust to being on break, I'll have to go back to work.
Plans for the rest of break include laundry, sub for a teacher at intersession Friday, Tucson day trip Saturday, and Dad coming on Monday. I still need to call him to make sure he didn't forget or get sick. He's a month shy of 75, after all. Still, he'll be driving here. I bought a travel book for Albuquerque, since I'd like to go there for a few days. All I know there is to do is Sandia Peak tram. I think it's called Sandia Peak. Some mountain over there.
It amuses me that this livejournal started out as a fandom thing (because I kept reading/commenting on ewanspotter
's) and has since become part personal blog, part fandom thing. Oh, it's also one of my main sources of reading material, since my flist is the second thing I read daily when I get home. Email is first.
My Crock Pot is still in the box. I really need to start using that thing.
So, that's all for now. I think.
