Good Morning, Kittens.
Oh, yes, yesterday was chock full of fun and excitement. I did laundry. I knitted. I got overly frustrated with the (temporary, but not quite temporary enough) roommate.
I decided to make a couscous salad last night for dinner. Before I started cooking, Y sat down on the sofa with a plate full of toast and hummus. I made the salad - couscous, corn, black beans, red onion. The dressing was olive oil, chiles, basil, lemon juice, garlic and spinach (pureed). When it was finished, I fixed myself a bowl and sat down on the couch to eat.
Y: *loud sigh*
V: Would you like some salad? It's in the refrigerator.
Y: I just don't understand why you are like this.
V: Like what? You just ate a big plate of bread and hummus. I said you could help yourself to the salad in the fridge.
Y: Well, it seems like since I paid for the groceries ...
V: (interrupting) Did you want me to serve you the salad? Is that it? You need me to get up from enjoying my dinner to fix you a bowl? Is that what you want? FINE! (V stops eating and gets up)
Y: No, I can get it (Y follows V into the kitchen).
V: Don't bother. (V spoons salad into bowl) Enjoy.
He made yummy-smacky noises while eating. I suppose that was his way of complimenting the cook. I was too hot to even speak to him.
"It's only temporary and the money is helpful." Repeat ad nauseum. But, srsly, people, doubleyou tee eff?
Today, I am meeting Ray for lunch at Zaytinya. Then, I am going to the pottery studio for awhile. I have a lot of trimming to do. I also have some co-op board things to do. And work on a job application. Oh, the fun times I have.
Have a great day!
