Good Morning, Kittens.
I had a lovely morning with the Colornatrix yesterday. She does such good work. I bought her a MegaMillions QuickPick (which reminds me: I need to check to see if I won! $250 Million!) and gave her a couple of chilies from my garden.
During our chat, she mentioned that she LUV'ed the tea-infused vodka I gave her last time. Yay! AND, then, I met the cute new "trainee". He gives good hair-washing, fer sure. Too bad he's too young and too partnered. *sigh*
And, the final hair result?
Verdict: SUPERCUTE (if I do say so myself)
I texted Mike (Who Makes Cakes) to see about meeting for lunch, but he didn't respond until I was on the Metro. So I had a lovely grilled tofu wrap and glass of pinot grigio at Adega. Then, I picked up some purple duct tape for some temporary pipe repair, and I bought some groceries for a little experimental cooking.
Reading Julie and Julia, although quite frustrating in many ways (more on this later, I'm sure), has at least inspired me to cook.
When I got home, my friend and former co-worker Dana called and was going to be in Silver Spring. So we met up for some shopping and happy hour beers before she headed out to dinner with her BF.
Once home, I helped SCGB with some yard work. He mowed. I weeded and swept and tidied. And, look! Baby Eggplant in my Garden!
After all of that, I had a beer and decided I was too tired to experimentally cook (let's just say it involved tofu, thai basil, chili peppers, and pumpkin seeds). I nuked a veggie burger, poured some bourbon, popped Doctor Zhivago into the DVD player and blobbed.
All in all, a Very Good Day.
