Today was my nephew’s birthday party. It was Daniel Tiger themed, and if you are a person of a certain age and aren’t exposed to Daniel Tiger, it’s adorable. It’s animated, but it’s a Mr. Rogers Neighborhood of Make Believe, next generation. It’s based around the children of the citizens of the Neighborhood of Make Believe. Too cute for words.
The party was lovely, and I ate responsibly. I miss shoving multiple slices of cake in my cakehole, but it’s okay. Because I’m…
Losing: 24 pounds and counting. The pound-and-a-half this week was a welcome surprise. I’m down 1 to 3 sizes (I hate how things are sized these days) but I’m not buying anything new until I get closer to summer. I’ll just use rope to keep my pants up.
Polished: I was going to do my beloved Lincoln Park After Dark, but when I opened the bottle, the polish was all dried out. Booooooooooo! That’s what I get for biting my nails for years. I settled for OPI Suzi Loves Cowboys, which is an equally old bottle but held up well.
Watching: WM has us watching Mountain Monsters (probably auto-play stupidity). This is the dumbest show on Destination America which is saying a lot. At this point I’m willing to go out there and shoot all of their stupid Bigfoot targets. (Bigfeet?) WM is amused to pieces by this show.
This rogue team “C QUAD?”…I hope it’s their wives screwing with them.
Reading: I’m about 100 pages away from finishing Jemisin’s The Kingdom of Gods and this weekend I bought Hamilton: The Revolution. I’m never going to see this cast perform this musical so this is the next best thing. This book even SMELLS great.
Cooking: I tried Mark Bittman’s chicken salad today. It’s good enough, but WM doesn’t like scallions and I don’t like celery, so I omitted them and it definitely needs some crunch. Maybe carrots?
Giving up: I have a cute photo of the party, but the WordPress 4.5 upgrade is tossing http errors when I try to upload photos. I don’t have an FTP client on my Surface yet (my bad) and it’s after 10pm so the Internet is out of luck.
