Almost there...

Tuesday, January 13, 2009


This weekend was spent in Davis, planning for the Evil League of Evil game at DunDraCon. It shall be awesome. First there was game planning and that was followed by costume shopping. For some odd reason, cowboy stuff is kind of hard to find right now, so if anyone has an old pair of cowboy boots or a cowboy hat or a leather vest I could borrow (that would kind of maybe fit), let me know. We shall be the Bad Horse Chorus. There will be singing. You've been warned.

Sunday I came home to two kitties who missed me and missed having their litter cleaned out daily. On the one hand, I'm very glad the two of them get along so very well. On the other hand, both of them trying to use the litter box at the same time while I'm in the middle of scooping it was a level of welcome-home comedy I wasn't really expecting. What I also found when I came home was a copy of Dr. Horrible's Sing-a-Long Blog on DVD in my mail slot. It was a present from a Cute Boy. Excited bounding around the house ensued followed by doing my post-Fezziwigs evening of caring for my feet. I watched the musical commentary followed by the featurettes followed by the filmmaker commentary, all while trimming and buffing my feet and toes. It was the perfect excuse to be on the sofa for 2 hours.

Monday I gave blood and opted to skip ceili. I went home with ambitions toward cooking dinner, cooking some reheatable meals for the week, and vacuuming the house. I remembered that Artemis Fowl: The Time Paradox was waiting for me at the San Jose Library. I jumped back in the car and ran to the library and four minutes later had my book-on-CD in my hot little hand. Gee thanks San Jose; I'm so glad you keep the library open til 8! Dinner was made: Chicken Tikka Masala with green beans. Yum Yum! Plus there were two leftover servings for food for the week, so I moved on to vacuuming while listening to Artemis Fowl. 2 1/2 hours later, the house was vacuumed, laundry was washed, dishes were cycled through the dishwasher, and I'd burned through two discs of the story. That's an awesome way to keep me on task while cleaning.


  • I've got red suede cowboy boots and brown leather half-boots (also cowboy) - size 8 1/2 - that you can borrow if they're not too big.

    No hat or vest, but I've got a ridiculously large red/blue turquoise and silver bolo tie (in the shape of a butterfly). :)

  • Chicken Tikka homemade with the sauce or pre bought somewhere?
    I found some Tikka Sauce at Trader Joe's but have yet to try it out.

  • So chicken breast from store, cut them up, simmer in sauce (for how long?) make veggies and carbos on the side ?

  • I have an Indy Jones hat. It's not quite a cowboy hat but might do.

  • What?! Cowboy never goes out of fashion. Or maybe Sacramento is just closer to the valley. Problem is that real cowboy gear is usually expensive.

    Ah, I miss tight jeans and manly men with manners.
