Quote of the Day
(Quote via Mark Morford)
Know what I'm tired of? Cliche desserts. One of the things I think we all look most forward to when having Chinese food is the fortune cookie. Am I right??
Note that they are called Fortune Cookies, as in they give you a fortune, a sort of prediction for your future. Not Stupid Aphorism Cookies that are meant to be used as a teaching device.
I can't remember the last time I got a real fortune from my cookie. Last night The Boy and I ate at PF Chang's. Know what my "fortune" cookie said?
So, There's This Song
And it plays constantly on the radio. And I frequently get the chorus stuck in my head. Except the one word of the chorus that I can't figure out. So this leaves me singing,
Conversation With a Co-Worker
CW: So, when did you find out that so-and-so was gay?
Me: When he told me. You?
CW: The Versace jean jacket with the gold embroidered panel was my first big tip off.
May Showers Bring Loads of Loot
Dude! If you ever want to get lots of stuff, get married! My bridal shower was this last Saturday (sorry I didn't post about it sooner; Mondays at work are crushing). And man did we clean up.
Okay, while I'm kind of joking above, I was seriously spoiled rotten. I cannot believe how generous everyone was. Our kitchen is pretty much stocked now with lots of glorious and glossy RED items. I won't go into exactly what, because I don't want to seem tacky, but we are so set if I want to make bread, or blend things or have coffee or tell time...well, you get the picture.
There were also lots of other wonderful items for the house, and honeymoon, and a few fun things just for me. There is no way to fully express my gratitude to the bridesmaids who really knocked themselves out to make my day so special.
From the amazing handmade invitations, to my absolute favorite tea cakes, to all the wonderful women who turned out to celebrate the day with me, it was everything I could have hoped for in a shower. I started crying as soon as I walked in and saw friends that I haven't seen in over a year and dear family members who took the time and made the trek (some at considerable distance) to shower me with love and gifts.
This is such a lovely tradition, and I'm so glad I got to be a part of that tradition. If you were involved in the planning of my shower, or attended my shower, and you read this blog, I send you a big, resounding THANKS, and giant hugs (XXXX), and a big ol' kiss (MWAH!)!
