Weekend Update: Daniel Craig Edition

Good rainy Monday morning, kittens.

My weekend was v. exciting. It involved all sorts of drama and intrigue. For example, on Saturday, I had to decide if I should nap on the sofa or in my bed. AND, then, I had to decide what cocktail to make ... oh, the drama!

Friday evening, I went over to a neighbor's apartment for a graduation party. It was fun. I drank lots of beerz, and we played Apples to Apples ... which is a surprisingly fun game. Perhaps, the beerz contributed to this assessment.

Saturday, I woke up late (yay), made coffee (yay), and did some serious blobbing around the house. Later that afternoon, I weeded in the flower beds and transplanted my marigold seedlings. Then, I invited Tomokito down for experimental cocktails (and cheese!). For the cocktail, I shook lime juice and vodka over ice, poured into a chilled martini glass, and garnished with a few slices of frozen peaches. A version of the drink is pictured above. Quite delicious. If you're a big boozehead like we are...

I headed over to Y's around 5ish. He was still at school, so I blobbed on his sofa for a few hours. *aah* Sofa-blobbing is so nice no matter upon whose sofa you are blobbing. Once Y got home, I cooked dinner, which was also experimental. I brushed asparagus and zucchini with a balsalmic vinegrette and roasted them in the oven. Meanwhile, Y made tahini and I cooked rice. Once everything was done, I spread a layer of rice in a romaine lettuce leaf, place a couple stalks of asparagus and a slice of zucchini, and drizzled with tahini. Then, it was rolled up into a little taco/burrito like thing. Yummy.

After dinner, I made gin and tonics and we settled down to watch Casino Royale ... which I lurved, but Y found it stretched believability too far and went to study. Every now and then, he would come watch some of the movie, but proceeded to make comments about how unrealistic it was. Finally, I said, "Yeah, that means a lot coming from someone who organizes his weekly schedule around Desperate Housewives." And, he stopped criticising the movie. Yay me.

Sunday morning, we slept really late. I thought it was early, but when I asked Y what time it was, he said, "11:30." Then came the morning teh buttsecks, which was lovely, until this really odd thing happened ... right at a very crucial moment (for me), both my hands went numb (not entirely, but from the middle finger to the little finger). It was a bit distracting. The numbness wore off after a few minutes. It was weird. Has that ever happened to anyone else? I wonder if maybe we were compressing a nerve or something.

After a leisurely breakfast of blueberries, yogurt, and granola, I showered, packed, and headed home, where I blobbed on the sofa, drinking cocktails and watching Casino Royale (again). Isabella loved it.

At 9, a couple of us went over to another neighbor's to watch Desperate Housewives. It was OK. I'm not quite sure I get it, but whatever. I kept calling the characters by the names of characters they used to play in other shows ... There certainly are a lot of 90s TV Show alum on DHW.

And, that was my weekend. Huzzah! Today is the 12th, which means 12 of 12 photos to be posted later this evening. It's also, Meat-Free Monday. Why don't you join in the fun and enjoy a meat-free meal today? Help the environment and yourself!

Finally, here's a gratuitous photo of Isabella continuing to enjoy the glory that is Daniel Craig (he's nekkid, so she's averting her eyes. Such a prude!):

More later. *smooches*


  1. That cocktail looks refreshing and your dinner sounds YUMMY!!!

  2. Criticizing James Bond for being unrealistic is a lot like criticizing the sky for being blue.

  3. Heather Outside Boston11:31 AM

    Sounds like you hyperventillated -- happens to me sometimes too. it's not bad, just distracting at first.

  4. It wasn't just the beerz - Apples to Apples is a lot of fun! After I first played it, I immediately went and bought it.

  5. You hyperventilated? Geesh, Bossy's gays have all the fun.

  6. Unrealistic? Amidst all the smokin' Daniel Craigness, Y focused on "unrealistic"? What a pity. Obviously, you forgave him for it!

  7. Lurve Apples to Apples! The more the merrier. It's hard to play with only 3 peoples.

    I'm so glad Isabella enjoyed the movie. Or was it just Daniel Craig she enjoyed? Was it just Daniel Craig that you enjoyed? As much as I like Pierce Brosnan, which is a lot, I had a difficult time watching the Bond film he made with Halle Berry and all the ice. Just too ridiculous.
