Scene: Mexican Restaurant
Characters: Cagey, X, Arun, Anjali, and 3 Random Men Sitting Nearby
Man #1, says to X while gesturing to Arun: "It's a blessing he looks like your wife."
And that is a direct quote.
What? Huh? Seriously, folks - I can think of absolutely nothing positive from that statement. Please enlighten me if you think that man meant something nice or thoughtful. I welcome any thoughts on this because I am drawing up blanks here.
So, I just finished #3 of the Twilight series late last night. I really need to hear that Breaking Dawn makes all this misery worth it. I mean, I really enjoyed #1...... enough to purchase #2-4 all at once. But Bella's constant guilty whining? Is grating. I hope Breaking Dawn pays off because at this point, I am picking it up to just finish off the series so that I can pick up Joshua Ferris' "Then We Came to the End" - a read that I am quite anxious to get started.
In other news, it had been awhile since I had last shaved. And. Um. Oof. As I went all Paul Bunyon on my legs in the shower today, I could not help thinking, "Wow, if I would just lose some weight, it would be that much less to shave!" That is what is referred to as"incentive" in polite societies. Something like that. So, off to the gym we went today. I love the irony that although my gym habits have been sporadic as of late, I am able to life more weights than ever before. Schlepping over 50 lbs of child meat on a daily basis will do that.
Speaking of the gym and books, I have made 2 goals for myself for the next four months - by December 31st, I need to have done 65 units of exercise (1 unit = 45 minutes) and I need to have read 14 books. I have done exactly 1 unit of exercise and have read 1 book. Stay tuned for details of my failure. Bah.
In other news, I used to have a daughter and her name was Anjali. However, last Saturday, I made the most delicious garlic mashed red potatoes ever. And she spit them out. I swear I heard three generations of my ancestors rattling around in the local cemetery. What the hell? Next to sunflower seeds and chips with salsa, mashed potatoes are my 3rd most favorite comfort food. I was very disappointed in my little girl. I will miss her.
