Date night!

Friday night was date night. My boyfriend asked me out and from the second he said, ‘how about oysters?’ That’s all I wanted.

We went out for dinner but instead ordered a bunch of appetizers. Mmm.

We did get delicious oysters that tasted like a childhood ocean swim.

We also ordered garlic shrimp, shell-on, with little sad beady eyes. They were cooked whole and drowning in garlic and oil. The taste was overwhelming. I probably would have liked them more a. If they were not looking at me, b. If the sauce wasn’t so thick, and c. If they were deshelled.

The crunch of the shell was tolerable but not tasty.

Alas, I have no photos because I left the SD card at home.

Which means we will have to have another oyster date night!

Plus, its a great excuse to wear makeup (I have discovered bronzer!) and my new grey boots!

Just another work day



It’s Saturday, but that’s just another work day this week.

So I’m sitting in my very cold office keeping to the challenge and eating at my desk. Nothing real exciting today.

Breakfast: instant coffee and lunchable
Lunch: lean cuisine pizza and yogurt
Snack: dinosaur pluot and a peach

Luckily work was busy busy this morning. Now its slow and I am getting bored. Who wants to come by and visit?

* Update: I did make it outside today and the weather is perfect!


I wrote a nice long post for you but my phone ate it.

Since I’m typing from my touch screen keyboard I have had a few almost auto-corrects.

Here is a sample of what you might have read:
Hurry = girth
Where = wherewith (um, maybe I should have used that!)
Plying = pluot
Lynch = lunch
Bourgeoisie, mountaineering and Capricorn are other gems but I don’t remember what word I was aiming for.



My boss called this morning as I was getting dressed and I had to hurry off to work in a rush. I forgot my yogurt in the refrigerator but luckily had packed most of lunch the night before.

Boyfriend was up last night working until after 4 am. We had a late dinner of salmon and zucchini with Henry’s market jalapeno cheese bread. We didn’t eat until midnight and his colleagues were over so I didn’t take any photos. I stayed up playing sudoku until 1 am but was too tired to make it any longer.

Today’s breakfast: instant coffee and a lunchable
Lunch: a dinosaur pluot, nectarine and Lean Cuisine sandwich

The photos are lunch and my lovely lunch tote I got for subscribing to SELF magazine.

The tomato! No, I’m not biting into a raw tomato. A very kind coworker gave me the fruit. It was grown by her father-in-law.
