shopping

I did unusual things today. I awoke to the neighbor hollering for what turns out to be the opening line of HEY! can I cook you breakfast? what, now? in about an hour….my usual minimum morning tv warm up without the tv time….I arrived intrigued what the repast was over… oh come on! you know it’s a BRIBE! it was a tomato tarragon egg scramble with a double portion plus of thick cut bacon. … fairly generous bribe! this bribe was to move a stored trailer covered but otherwise empty from storage to hooked up….it was buried in yuck knee-deep white….it took a double breaks as my hands got wet and I cold…but I was able to successfully help earn my breakfast 😀 this led immediately to the other neighbors for a tour of my requirements of collect my check and then deposit the check and then go grocery shopping – more about this latter adventure in a moment… only to have brother bring home wine when i got too lazy to go do the last bit myself.. I end the evening after his, brother’s thrill, by going grocery regretting as in cleanup shopping with the morning neighbor. 🙂

if you wish to skip the shopping portions of this adventure due to bragging designed to make you hungry even if I’m only pleased how lucky I can potentially be during a week where it calls for snow til next thursay …. well, here’s your chance… I made good on the hoped for option for weird african beans with chicken thighs and drumsticks for shake’n’bake-able bbq chicken. I also have a chuck roast with potato and carrot enough to make a simple wined up one of those…might have to get kohlrabi for this…can’t remember if its anise celery or just anise the stuff… I have a standard party shrimp ring the half sized big boy platter which is about the limit of what i know I can eat myself as if lol I’d have trouble finding help…as if… a peach pie and because i had a ride a rare treat perhaps of michigan cherry cobbler ice cream. green beans can look forward to a tangy cranberry nut trail mix along with butter so as to be…tangy. there’s sour cream and butter for potatoes and tone I think steaks reasonable but lower grades marble remind me to butter poke and not incinerate…and by butter I mean butter oil blend which with a FEW holes means there is a chance at keeping a medium at most from not being shoe leather…. yes folks I can cook I kick myself as certain things I can not do with proper blind skills but I have duplicatable skills I can teach you… there is hotdogs, my kind hebrew nationals all repackaged down so I can share or not share and save too. I have basic salad and cheeses so I can toasted. I have kenyan coffee enough for the weekend start 😀 I have wildflower honey the small bear looking kind which is enough for a biscuits day and tea. I even have reeds extra finer beer…mmmm along with diet cherry coke as in cherry coke zero.. I have milk a lil cereal left from last visit shopping I have bread proper for tunafish sandwiches WITH some lettuce 😀 I have a bit of slam and razor meat beef for a different sandwich. I even can salivate over the rare time I’ll blow good money on an indian selection from an organic store of chicken tikka masala… okay it won’t be off a grill but in a sauce it should be palatable. I have star fruit /kiwi and white grape peach along with only a need for wine and seven up to extend this option. I have american kraft singles and tortillas along with a bit of fontena which I can’t remember anything about and some gouda which is …gouda. I even have this new regret I picked tomato basil string cheese which is okay just not vavoom. I believe with mild pick ups or even without I have enough stuff to suitably enjoy being snowed in which means it’ll not be any worse than it got to which is…8 I can’t do. 35 I can’t last in except carefully and timed rightly walk and return home trips no longer than 20 minutes ish as I start getting too cold. I did get eggs and the regular bread also includes a markdown bag of bagels with cream cheese. . yes, you heard me right, I didn’t stop in for beer and wine, I went to a super market complete with razor meals in case I can’t hack real food 😉 i.e. having to prepare it. it I even have a short supply of disgustingly typical snacks like dorritoes for bean dip and pretzel waffle kind for enjoyable luxurious laziness. I thus look forward to getting a pinot noir which doubles as useful for the pot roast and sitting down to a joy

brother’s joy was a 1893 mason & hamlin pump organ he’s bringing home tomorrow. I might have to develop a joy of bach, I do know whom to call for a bach do up as…well it’s handy studying orchestra in school 😉 while I can’t say I’m interested in organ, it lends itself that if I can manage a piano I can conceivably manage an organ. maybe… I’m not dreading it…I look forward to seeing it. I hope I don’t have to struggle to learn something dumb like PLAY BALL! or some such. I suppose I can get impressive and study more of the ancient music like king david’s lyre as while reed instruments were writing she a loutish harp thin gum was music, there is a decided cadence to ancient stuff. heh, devise some pervert sumerian poetry to a melodic beat… heh. it has possibilities.

there will be hametashen and some selections of esther book of wednesday evening. this is the jewish timed celebration of purim. I am again not Jewish nor of the faith yet hope that those whom are want to get excited. I hope wanting to care counts as I may not have much more to do with this than simply courting it could happen with cool cookies….which my supervisor wants to try. I have my schedule allowance to work early enough I’m only pinching an activity. I still am not sure of many things there but maybe I’m not in the dogjouse… maybe.

my ride visited batteries plus for watch batteries and I viewed their selection of compact fluorescents in party colors. it’s not a bad price 6 bucks. or might have been five far better than the fifteen I saw them at last time I remembered thinking of them… I was however disappointed in the 40 bucks for the cell phone batteries when they’re 25-60 new. ouch.

I can look forward to a weekend of work. It’ll snow. but i can then look forward to whickeyed evening of shlock raio with phillip marrow. there even was a script of one show available in some writers course! I know it doesn’t seem a perfect fantasy to hope for popcorn evenings which wil ll have to be quesodillas as while I have dental tools I like quessodillas more. I have enough to make a potao soup even. I can’t do enough of the skiing lol too cold for me. but I may pick up a book and make a pot of coffee and get wired. on indoor living. here’s to shopping up the right life?

hmph and other smiles

the cat’s usually whiney. this week stir crazy about the snow and nothing to do so here he comes to bother me. humph 😉 it turns out he has acceptable requests of everyone. he whines for me it’s usually food then water and often lately more petting and petting only which mean claw my arm and suckle. never gentle and it’s only bare skin to claw. ug. but after he refused water after a full food dish that was my call then brother turns on the water and he’s right there to suck it down. he refuses water that isn’t running and. cold.

I felt like getting out and LIVING so it snowed and will snow for the next week too. humph! 😉 I am on phillip marrow’s adventure as they’re in a fidelity I can hear. i did like the omar of persia but frankly I can’t easily hear that one.johnny dollar is too much expense account talk and carousing and not enough drinking on cold nights… shhh it. 😀

I cooked whole wheat pasta with a ketchup rescue for sauce of manwich base, two cans rotel one original the other mild and a can with liquid of mushroom….to me about the most vile thing to smell opening but i had to stretch what I had. the pasta was cooked to most’s tastes thoroughly to just about soft not ardent….in salted water HIGHLY salted water. the result turned out actually to be spicy hot and still the noodles aren’t salty enough. but anymore and I’d have no kidney function so 😉 the magic salvation was 101 grinds of italin herb seasoning…. or about 3/4 of a teaspoon.

tomorrow is chakalaka, southern African dish of tomato sauced and curry powdered baked beans simmered served either on toast with cheese or with meat… if I can survive the trip it is too cold out for me, cheese can convenience store midday when it might hit above freezing and or the grocery proper where I’d consider shake and bake bbq chicken…I have liquid smoke to pretend it’s really bbq’d.

yes I’d hope you’d watch what I try after when the larders are thin… I’m rather positive *I* wouldn’t be after whole wheat pasta with spicy sauce… I avoid the wrong foods and yet end up with them lol. praise be or what fun would pantry stores cookery be if I had no pantry or no stores?

I want to see this coded movie but can’t remember it’s name. it’s new either in theaters or about to be.

I don’t want to traps all over town for supplies but I might like them while I can as it really will snow saturday, sunday, tuesday and wednednesday. I haven’t the heart to look for mor bad news. it takes over an hour to shovel out my side. i can’t stand it so as you can imagine I hope I left path enough. of course! its a plowed and snowed over 1 ft no where else but my side no sun side drift. can i get a smile in the house? you bet MINE to heck with the outdoors!

Reasonable?

just in case you’re tempted to think your kids or your friends are going to take care of you, pay up your long term care for the inevitable….why nursing homes all suck. I’m deliberately skipping the smells.

Waiting around for God is awfully futile as an Atheist.
Wonky vision makes spotting yesterday’s episode is pointless.
How many more times is that punk going to read about God’s and our grace?
Apparently, your shut-up button wore out too.
When was it a crime to like show tunes?
The bar service is LOUSY
All the doors are open – yet I cant go anywhere
Everyone knows the food is legendary…
Stop pretending you care.
How did I wind up in here?

Not cranberrying

do you remember xanga. it exists for many as a room within wordpress. I have just got caught out side for months not reading my email and thus my subscription finally expired. I only had 63 watch people’s comments un moderated…dallas november 1963. I’ve been shot out of that loop. pretty much a decade ended without notice…I mean mine.

I think it highly inappropriate to dedicate some Julio Iflasias and Willie Nelson – to all the girls I ‘ve loved before.

in other news that isn’t news – the walgreens bagel dog… oh god help me! no thanks. almost made me want to cook that one was so awful.

I already mentioned I visited the not really a fire at work…concerning – yes!…I will be trimmed on hours til the place fills. I am glad I didn’t push for a split shift as the one detail I forget is while it is important I run activities on my time, I’m paid and retained for being rather dang useful in knowing 30 or more for this facility’s health treads. not their instant health as such is for docs and nurses concerns, trends.

I tried every possible way to make a wine spritzer with diet soda and gave up and bought 7-up.

I was pleased people had heard of he places featured on my fancy night out. I gave it to our cooks. I placed my mug tactfully not on full display but visible.
I apparently am more forgetful than usual so all my little bills were just a smidge off… don’t get me wrong I’m still about 2 weeks ahead early on them just not perfectly over on all. no wonder it felt like I had money 😉

I suppose the pizza hut said it all. I can’t be who I was even if I wanted to be. I’m just not at that place any longer. more employed, more scatterbrained, more along the road.

questionable

if you saw an open purse where a note said heck, could you not laughingly saying to heck in a hand basket?

I got to try PizzaHut for the first time in absolutely ages….and failed to get a flavor crust despite that being precisely the advertising that lured me in. I also didn’t really get leftover breakfast because well… I tried 😀

I felt compelled to say I’d be in today to pretend it wasn’t the best k=news I was to have some hours adjustments…. here it is morning and like clockwork, I do not feel compelled. but I suppose it never hurts to show in actions I care.

I really should consider breakfast. perhaps some soup…what more questionable choice is there than bean with bacon?

Perspectives

I am home from a charity fun?draiser for local hospital’s Hospice care entities. I dressed fancy and was on the “town” for what was planned to be a make sure I’m prepared to hobnob in case event- for which I wanted and obtained adult supervision….you know, so I didn’t spendd the evening with steam foot appetizer ala pinhole utterances. I chose additional donation options with the purchase of soup-to-go which is a lottery surprise of gift certs to some participating restaurants. the soup and appetizers were predictably both good and less than amusing. there was some empty feeling in that I cant say I would wish to return as I see no purpose truly to from a social requirement / opportunity standpoint. I left early because the mc – a local tv personality was so grating, that suicide was preferable to listening to another word.

thus, soon I will have a suit-able me to share phot-wise. I liked some of my samplings- appetizer short ribs/mashed with crispy fried onions courtesy of loci denver, and the clam chowder from oceaneria which was scratch made fresh clam chowder as i tasted one grain of grit that’s a dead giveaway of fresh scratch-made. I met my table guests but no one else compelling enough to seek out. what is not uncommon is some like wine and wine drinkers were here in force if you smelled what I smelled of breath walking about. for reasons of potentiality I neither smoked or drank alcoholic beverages for this event….I am home with my very own bottle of bombay because I need martini therapy. the event was dry. cost is about 200 a person after it works out and it was fairly split by my companion at tenting. I was both jazzed to go and jazzed to be home. our table person made out like a table hostess yet seemed there to shovel all the giveaway person materials into her possession… I honestly felt I scored getting a free vendors map layout flyer from her but it wasn’t free as the matching mug one to a seat for my guest was shanghaied along with herb sachets and many other minor things. I know this may be annoying to admit but I can and did manage a four hour smoke free evening.

as to dupllication for my residents, we already do linens and individual settings. I didn’t actually seem anything we didn’t do except serve better coffee I’ve had maxwell house out of a vending machine better than that coffee! I am not sold on the consume/broth style split pea / ham soup…but it was by far the prettiest till the guy put the hot broth in from a paper cup. 😉 details! the longest line was to the place offering buffalo chili and lobster tacos…which was the official hotel’s restaurant. anything seafood of a not sold by campbells nature had a LINE of significance. about 800 people attended I as table 84 and most of the room was 70% of capacity. I cant say there wasn’t pretty pottery from local studios as there was and there was a mountain scene painted in a very el greco-esque way/feel.
the best pre event mixing appetizer was was a vegetarian option for a ham and onion chip. this beat out a swordfish and beet thing on a potato something ini.

my companion ran across one ex boyfriend and one ex husband 😀 lol, I told her not to bother pointing anyone out as I’d only draw more attention and frankly didn’t have the slightest interest because i suppose I’m gallant they didn’t live up to her so why bother with them? yes, clumsy as this evening was, I am glad to be reminded of higher behaviors 😉 because it isn’t all that often we attend the black tie or “fancy” events.

Event

I’ve purchased my tickets for
http://www.soupforthesouldenver.org/ ‘s monday fundraiser.

this means I’ve asked someone to be adult supervision so i can hobnob some doing something recreational sure but ultimately work related – fundraiser is for hospice care albeit not for my job persay but it can be and swipe soup recipes as I doubt it’d be the 15th year of an even if they served shite soups.

I chose my pervious employer for computer sidework to go and was accepted. the reasons are good as she’s been nice directly, and also her previous gig was… area director for a pharmaceutical company… little league curve evening for her.

I am not unduely wealthy yet this is a business attire dress code event. I actually do not own the threads for such. tomorrow I shall be shopping for a proper suit coat and shoes if needed and tie. oddly enough I used to own a lot of this but 😀 lucky me I changed sizes and 20 years passed…usual excuses. I can afford the shebang it likely is a sear.com thing. I am somewhat surprised at the range offered for all of which seems reasonable yet the whole putting in reality represents about what I’d make in a month. I wonder why I feel drawn to this – but I am very much drawn to this somehow being the right place to be….and just about affordable too.

I am not quite sure about the award to the person it’s too which is so obviously politically motivated it’s not even funny. it, I believe is to a girl shot while refusing to yield while driving a stolen AT police officers…yet polorizes a community with minority abuse tones. that part I sorta get in that this community had the oomph to avoid some of the “this” usual outcome… again, please understand I bring adult supervision on purpose so I remain respectful to learn more of this and why it’s otherside participant is to be celebrated…remember previous to this, the last fancy even I attended are:

journey of taste – johnny walker. mixers prior to the presentation with free simple johnny walker 😉 drinks and hors d’ouvres then a tutorial in single malts and how they are categorized largely by the local styles of scotland. then stumble home. it was business casual. even if it was at the hotel presidents frequent while in town – denver’s The Brown Palace.

I cant remember it’s year or title but the end of year awards do up for Detroit’s Police department as my grandfather newly then retired was up for a long service achievement retiring at 81 in 2001. the food was high quality hotel/catering fanciness of chicken in a fine gravy with a florence fennel/anise stalk as a fountain. it was 33.95 nearly fifteen years ago. obviously the event was meant to be posh. all the drinks were free. I really dislike bagpipe music as it is meant to conjur sadness both for it’s actual tones ouch and because of the fighting spirit it’s usual employed to celebrate. …and poo lordy do a lot of cops DRINK. the event location was the rooster tail on the riverfront of detroit.

of course I’ve also 3-17 been a regular many times a week church attender and church in this case was strictly formal attire behaviour.

so in a way i obviously do not lack experience in the formal circumstances yet, something tells me to not waste a chance to dress or be the maybe director in my own right later having learned how all along the way not just oh poof. to be allowed to do what I normally can not which is a drink in and with people who do relate to my line of work which is nursing home. they one aspect of care we facilitate. obviously I wish to use the social gathering to practice something of statement…yeah not so obvious or maybe it was… to wield food or drink …even conversation as if on the battlefield. perhaps you’d agree, I picked a kindly person who might be of grand assistance….;) even had the class to say she rearranged her schedule to go 🙂

or you can believe that I’ve a taste for overpriced soup.

I wonder if you’d laugh if I asked if you saw Jackson / Jackson. *$20/$20
I’ve a nice enough check coming as I’m finally both uncaring thus useful at work.
I’m curious if Doc did her homework on how I doubt I’ve a cataract or shuffles me tomorrow
I didn’t kill the plant. that’s a first for my work gardening record.
I still a gurgle in the kitchen when the bathroom sink goes… hurry up few more weeks as I’m not snaking you just to have another tree in place before the summer’s out.
my house still smells of fabulous…how irritating to finally say my life matches my work quote on how am I…fabulous.
I am largely caught up on all I’ve missed of paperwork and reading others etc.
I’m duece curious if my taxes are in progress…might just suffer the its we site here in a shake
kitty cat’s lover cat.
favorite pretty shoes me away like a fly.
got asked to help with math…I know people think I’m smart but geez, I flunked college twice and cant get past algebra’s first year. although, I did get the n(t U d) bit of statistics…however i doubt I explained it in a useful manner 😉
I still think it’s unfair that cook always has the very things I want for dinner not the lunch I’m there for 😀 arm-twister.
Jacob’s creek sweet red wine is purdy dang good wine for 7.99 – even if it’s the screwtop kind.
the devil shrimp at the mexican restaurant was HOT. but the chef said he made the sauce scratch 🙂 I might have needed another napkin for drip control.
Ijumped on a train and then a another one and then the local shuttle to the best I could hope for in dining. it’s nice when one can dine, wine and walk the mile home just after dark in february without santa’s reindeer and sleigh.
I did paperwork as lnoy one arrived hoping only to escape and…well nope, I cant leave i have an acidity…no one is here for. good thing though paperwork is largely done and the crossword …well shoot, I couldn’t guess a single range question which really is embarassing as I have all the answers.
I took all my medication minus an adjustment prior to bed. amazing concept having it all in one organized bag.
having a disorganized bag led to 7 dolars in emergency beer which also pleasing though.
‘m fairly sure I cant wait for this weekend which actually has me having one weekend day off woot!
the funniest thing that happened all week was I asked one of the residents if I could help him towards dinner only to get the you’re number one in my heart gesture…quip and bon mot to npassing nurse…I guess the answer is NO then.

too too.

I won three dollars
after losing the penny and spending nine
dumb, hunh?
let me pretend it doesn’t sting.
when I think of my job
I still think of how I’m robbed
dumb, hunh?
bad attitude sure can sting.
valentine’s day comes certainly
as a wallet wide empty
gettin some, right?
my thinking is all wrong, right?

I’m stuck like chuck
waiting for life to errupt
all you have to do is show up
that’s the fairy tale corrupt
oh no.
dreams goin once
dreams goin twice
the joke’s not funny already.

best bitch of the year
only asked for one more beer
and I run, dumb?
I want to shackle happiness pure
I plan all the time
for the check to never arrive
what luck, hunh?
as if wads of money were ever a cure.
laugh with me at the christmas thing
it was a sample of cream
pardon me five, please
I have some visions to fog my glasses steamed.

I’m stuck like chuck
waiting for life to errupt
all you have to do is show up
that’s the fairy tale corrupt
oh no.
dreams goin once
dreams goin twice
the joke’s not funny already.

if you’ve no clue what the song model is, lita ford’s kiss me deadly should alleviate that problem for you. I suppose I should point out why this feels like to me a parody… the person wins a love affair, I of course have and haven’t been so lucky. what’s more, if one keeps believing the wrong way, it’s going to keep comin around like death wrarmed over. and for the record, yeah, I actually feel this way sometimes… I work on shining the silver from the black or gray clouds as such is how we get reflected back ourselves… or just see the gloom. and no, this isn’t perfect to the song structure as I just don’t feel like redoing the last line set of the chorus which closes the song correct to the lyric model. but 😉 now for a smoke…. some of those visions were steamy 😀
