Life Listlessly and some other stuff.

I mentioned last week that Inspector Climate and I had the worst dinner ever while we were in Canberra. Well, Inspector Climate did, my meal was just ridiculously expensive for 2 onions, a carrot piece, and some pureed spinach. Inspector Climate wanted to leave right after the mains were removed from the table, because "we'd spent enough money at the gross expensive restaurant." But when he saw my eyes light up at the mentioned of a cheese platter, he said we could stay and eat cheese (with apples! and nuts! and strawberries! oh my!). And that's where I got to eat another kind of cheese Manchego! Yummy.

Also right after our trip to Canberra, I finished my first classic piece of literature to start working on that part of my life list. I read David Copperfield. I absolutely loved it. Seriously, adored it. I am not going to write you a book report, but it was good and I am glad I carried around the giant book for 3 weeks in my bag (I pretty much was only reading it on the tram to and from work).

Today, I left work at noon. So I came home, and am now watching ready steady cook - unlike when I was unemployed, watching now is a luxury. Instead of being depressingly unsettling that I don't have anything better to do with my time than watch a crappy day time cooking show, now I can giggle at how orange Peter Everett is. I can marvel at the new kitchen sets.

This weekend I am going to The Climate's house to be spoiled by Mrs. Climate. Life is tough, ya'll. And not crying is awesome.

What are you doing this weekend?

Peace out, my bitches.

  9. Barkis is willing!

    I loved that novel! Actually, I love all Dickens. I just read Tale of Two Cities for the first time not long ago.

    Manchego is yummy. I would happily live on cheese, bread and wine.
