Stopped at Trader Joes today (what else is new?) I got more flowers for my room, some sunflowers. I love adding flowers to my room, it really adds a little life. I also scooped up a bag of these GINGER CHEWS. These are fabulous! If you like ginger that is. I guess that can be overwhelming. I liked pickled ginger (on sushi of course!) but not necessarily all things ginger. But these are great, good for digestion and they have hardly any components to them (always encouraging). So order a bag or stop at trader joes and pick them up while you're waiting to check out (they are by the front area). I also got the legendary Greek yogurt which is off the chain if I do say so myself. You have not had yogurt until you've had this, people!
Wow Pandora, great work! On my Radiohead station it's playing Disarm by The Smashing Pumpkins. Great song. So my lead meeting went well today. NO ONE CRIED (namely me! ha ha ha). We actually ate at a restaurant right across the way, Jimmy's Grill (not really worth linking). So my fear of being repermanded in the back was banished! Our manager was sweet and ordered us a bunch of food. That kind of food makes me nervous, but I ended up to snag a few onion rings. I won't eat it unless it's there. I try to eat as healthy as I can. Don't get me wrong, this slips away. I have good days and bad days. The nights are the hardest. I always want a sweet treat and get so bored, I just want to chew. Anyyywhooo. This is not important.
I am dying to check out Thom Yorke's solo album The Eraser. What a shame my downloading convenience fell through. Damn C drive. OBTAIN SPACE! oh well. Such is life. All good things must come to an end. I need to hear more bands. I went to Florida for 5 days in January to see one of my good buddies, Matt. We have the same kind of taste in music, but didn't listen to all the same things persay. He was into newer kind of relaxing mellow music (zero 7, smoke city, sigur ros) which have now become some of my favorite bands, while I turned him onto Pink Floyd, The Who, Slightly Stoopid, and Phish. It was so refreshing to have a new collection of music and to add on to my "base" of classic rock/radiohead ha ha.I have a wide variety of music that I listen to, but I can be a music snob at first. I just need time to like a song. Some are an instant catch. It's all good. Music is so widespread but can be so particular. I like that. Music is so important. I wish I had a bigger role in producing it. Playing an instrument or singing. Voice lessons could be fun. Right? What could that hurt? (besides ears?!)
I had dinner with my brother and sister in law. Clarissa and I prepared dinner, which consisted of fresh mozzerella with strawberries & fresh oregano and mint and a smidge of olive oil, Butternut squash ravioli, homemade baguettes I had made just before going to their house, and she prepared a nice garden salad. It was quite fabulous. I enjoy their company a lot and it's a nice change of pace to hang out with them :)
However, I shall stop rambling and start reading.
Order some ginger chews and prepare yourself a cup of tea for a before bed beverage(good night, America!) or an early splash of flavor (good morning, Europe!)
