1. Thursday night Mat came over. I made a pizza because I had leftover cheese and sauce. Then I realized I also had onion and garlic so I made a caramelized onion and garlic pizza. Delicious. We watched Atonement. How the heck was that an Oscar-nominated movie? It was awful! At first it was interesting, I really did love the first half hour or so, but then it just kept getting worse and worse. Awful. And (spoiler) I hate movies that just kind of end with someone wrapping everything up for you. And this was the worst because they not only...

1. I was a big girl and called a dentist yesterday. Now I just have to be a bigger girl and actually go. But I suppose when I'm lying in bed and really contemplating taking pliers and pulling out my teeth one by one that it is time I stop being afraid of a dentist pulling out my teeth and causing me pain...

1. Mat always complains that I use the term "improv" incorrectly. For instance I will say "I'm going to watch you improv tonight." Which, apparently, is a completely wrong usage of the word. You can watch improv but you watch people improvise. Which, personally, I think is silly. So one day he told me to just use "improvate," and he said it didn't matter how I used it because it's a made up word. So, cut to Sunday night, while watching Middle Age Comeback, the dude on stage actually used "improvating" in a sentence. And it was weird. 2. So Sunday...

Friday night MK had a grill party at his place. Since my drive through endless construction got me there about two hours late I basically downed two hamburgers within minutes of getting there. I was hungry! But I have no photos of my hamburgers. :( I do have a photo of some hot dogs: We flipped between the Cubs and the Sox and both teams won. And MK made lots of drinks. And I invented the best drink ever: vodka and pickle juice: The seeds floating in there totally enhance it. And Scott played the piano...

1. I realized that we've been hanging out for a year now. And haven't fought or cried. I think that is a record for us getting along by about 11 and a half months. 2. FYI, a giant road sign that says "Driving distracted is both unsafe and irresponsible" is kind of distracting. 3. Note to self: do not store carrots and crackers in the same container. It will end badly. 4. This morning was one of those mornings that made me think that I shouldn't get out of bed. First I broke my favorite jeans. Then my CTA pass...

1. I went to Trader Joe's on Saturday. I spent $40 and figured out that it would make a grand total of 13 meals. Which is pretty awesome. Of course, that means I am eating chicken stir fry three times, chicken pizza twice, cheese/crackers/fruit three times (for work lunches), pasta three times, and mushroom bites twice. But it's economical. My best find was a bag of multi-color frozen pepper strips. Because I am not a big fan of peppers but I like a little in my stir frys and this gives me three different peppers that I only need to...

1. Why do I always look like crap when I see the cutest guy ever? Answer: because I almost always look like crap. 2. Did I ever mention how much I love guys with curly hair? Love it. 3. Last night I had Ian's Chicago hot dog pizza. It was pretty tasty and I didn't even douse in ketchup! 4. I actually wore a dress yesterday that was not over jeans. Today I am back to the dress over jeans. (Yes, I know, my fashion style is so mid-nineties.) 5. When I get married I am getting registered at the Foodie Registry. 6. THERE'S GOING...
