random remarks

Just about a week until my family arrives. I was really looking forward to their visit, but now I’m lackadaisical. (And yeah, I spelled it on the first shot)

Made pancakes today. Decided that, while I consider myself a pretty damn good cook, I should recognize my limitations. I suck at making pancakes. Also decided, I need to break down and get some new pots & pans.

Worked most of the bad mood out of my system. Back to normal today, or, better stated, what’s become normal for us.

Finally got over to the library, got a bunch of stuff. I amused myself by sticking a Lori Foster book in the middle of my stack. Hiding it like a thirteen year old boy would hide Playboy. I met her on an airplane and since then, have read most of her books. I’m a little ashamed of people finding a romance novel, God forbid! And, I will add for the record, that this secret guilty pleasure has not morphed into a habit, I’ve only touched her books…

Feeling the need to shop. I have a few gift cards burning a hole in my wallet. I think I need to find something to do for me this weekend. The weekends are tough because I feel we don’t enjoy them and that often, they go to waste. So, if I have something I want to do, and he doesn’t, tough. We did things by ourselves often at home, I guess I just don’t like leaving him home here. I wish he’d find friends here even more than I wish I had them. He’s always had a ton of friends around, he makes friends easy, friends that last. Hell, he’s known some of his friends longer than I’ve been alive.

Off to run out the Lab…

  1. That’s funny about Lori Foster. Before self-checkout, I always wanted to check out “How To Make Love Like A Porn Star” by Jenna Jameson but never would because I just didn’t want to bring it up to the desk.
    Anyway, your aversion to romance novels reminds me of a great line from The Fisher King.
    Lydia: Yeah, but what we publish is mostly trashy romance novels.
    Parry: Don’t say that. There’s nothing trashy about romance.


  2. Funny! 🙂
    When did we meet on a plane? Was it recently? I hope you like the book, whichever one it was.
    AND I hope you have a very, very enjoyable weekend. It sounds like you need some fun.
    Big hugs,
    Lori Foster
