dinners and lunches

I didn't get very much done at work this morning. Don't tell anyone. I'll catch up in the afternoon, I guess.

I've been trying to get some of my Birth Week scheduled. A lot of it's falling into place. A lot of it still up in the air.

Should I tell you about last night? I seriously considered seeing another movie but changed my mind. I saw movies two nights in a row the previous two nights and I decided I wanted at least one evening free at home this week. Shobhit and I ate leftover nachos from dinner the night before, and after a ridiculous amount of sampling at work yesterday (cake, grilled cheese, sandwich cookies), I was up to 152.3 lbs this morning. That's some genuine cause for concern right there. Shobhit had some cookies at home and I decline, and didn't go for any chai either. I have had a few tortilla chips this morning, really not many at all, but no sweets; I didn't even sweeten my tea today. I think I'm doing pretty well actually. I just need to keep doing this every day.

We watched more episodes of season 6 of Roseanne than I even know. Three times I thought it would be the last one and then I kept clicking on the next episode. This is how they get you with the binge watching. Although I'm not sure what it does for whoever makes money off of it; I pay my annual Amazon Prime fee regardless, and I don't have to watch any commercials. The show, by the way, remains impressively ahead of its time even six seasons in. There's an on-screen same-sex kiss between Roseanne and Sandra Bernhard, and this was three years before Ellen DeGeneres came out on her show. According to iMDB.com, ABC was even afraid to air the episode and Roseanne demanded that they air it.

I just got back from lunch with Karen down at the Six-Seven Restaurant at the Edgewater Hotel. I nearly forgot we even had lunch scheduled -- after forgetting to bring lunch to work yesterday, I did remember to bring lunch today, forgetting until I looked at my Google Calendar that I had lunch with Karen scheduled today. So I guess I'll have the last of the leftover pasta from dinner Monday night, tomorrow.

We split the gyro again, so lunch was fairly light as well as expensive, a contrast on both parts to when we have the truffle macaraoni and cheese, which we've now not had for about a month.

She also helped me brainstorm a bit, ideas for the Botanical Garden theme for my Birth Week. We also scheduled having her and Dave (and probably Anita, apparently) over for dinner the evening of Sunday May 6. That will be in lieu of a Birth Week party.

We both talked about how much we misjudged the weather today. She did worse than I did, as I knew it would be rainy and that I would not want to dress too lightly, but the jacket I wore today still proved slightly too light. Oh well, I'll live.

That's all I've got for you today. Time to get back to work.
