. . . or something :-P
The grand excursion involving things of cooking! Made my second trip in recent weeks up to Fredericksburg. The mission on this day was to save Aaron from a life of perpetual Taco Bell. While there's nothing wrong with Taco Bell (ok, so there's a lot wrong with it, but we won't go into that here) one should probably not be living on it. Strictly speaking I think the mission was of a social nature, with the activities being secondary, but you know. Anyways. At the beginning of the day Friday, there was a kitchen that contained . . . spoons. And not much else. After our huge excursion to WalMart (the exciting kind where you actually get to BUY things!) it contained many more things than spoons. Things to make it possible to create actual meals in said kitchen. And we created one. We made lasagne, mostly from scratch. This is a feat I have never before attempted, judging the frozen kind to be sufficient or going to a restaurant to fulfill my lasagne needs. But I do feel quite accomplished. It only took us four hours :-P Also there was Ben and Jerry's (oh, Mint Cookie! How I've missed you!) modernmorland
would be SOOOO proud of how much of my pint I managed to finish. My success is largely due to the fact that I had eaten all of a Wawa pretzel beforehand. Also, there was SPN! By a happy coincidence I got to be present for the witnessing of Hell House and Something Wicked (Aaron is working his way through S1) two most excellent episodes :-D
In the morning was work, oh happy day. But after that was much more entertaining. modernmorland
's friend Isaac expressed a great and pressing need to get off the peninsula. Being in the Coast Guard, he tends to spend a lot of time there. So I said, well central VA is fascinating, come visit! And by fascinating I mean . . . not Newport News? Yeah. Anyway, Isaac is heavy into the photography and had requested interesting architecture. Upon reflection, I decided that avoiding my poor knowledge of the downtown area was best and settled upon a visit to U of R. See a few of the resulting pictures here:http://www.mudhiker.com/m/main.php/v/bw/
And then we staved off starvation with the timely application of food and talked for a bit. He showed me a great many pictures that he had of going interesting places with the Coast Guard which made me hugely jealous. Not the Coast Guard part, just the going cool places part :-P And then I sent him home.
Sunday: I woke up at supposedly 6 AM, but actually 5 AM (or that's what my body was screaming at me) and went to work. Seriously, I LOVE Daylight Savings Time! I know, I'll be singing a different tune in October when I get an EXTRA hour of sleep, but that's not doing me any good now.
Tomorrow (today) will be the seeing of lyricalangel86
