Dinner and then some trickiness

This evening I met Jac at her work. We had a nice walk and got dinner. She opted for a mixed sushi plate. Starting from the yellow one, moving clockwise: omelette, tuna, vegetarian, california roll, caviar, octopus, eel, prawn, salmon x 4. In the centre, a wee cat poo-style piping of wasabi. This came with […]

New pc case

Now that the date has been set for Computer Building Day (the public holiday coming up on the 26th September – my brother and I are both very busy people!), I’ve ordered one more part for the computer – a new case! After much um-ing and ah-ing and lots of research (I stole some time […]

Lunch with the girls

We all ordered the same! See, triplet lunches: We all had the grilled snapper fillet with chargrilled courgette, served on seeded mustard mashed potato. The ring of yellow and black that you can see is olive oil with drops of (apparently) a balsamic vinegar reduction (hoity toity!) that was very sweet and syrupy (reminded me […]

Late lunch

Today Jac and I, and our friend Michaela went to visit another friend in hospital. On the way back (like, 2:15/2:30pm) we had a very late lunch at our favourite asian food hall. Michaela’s lunch: chinese combination. I forgot to ask her what dishes she had, but I can see sweet and sour something, satay, […]

Friday Night Footy+ caesar salad

I splashed more dark soy all over mine. I think Jac has finally been converted to […]

New job

And in other news, I got the job! I’ll be one of a batch of new exam supervisors at uni for the semester two exams. I had been convinced I’d been rejected because the chap who interviewed me told me he would email on Friday of last week or on Monday this week, and I’d […]

Cravings

I think I’m coming down with something. I have a cough and a hanky full of blowings. I’ve been feeling crook for the past couple of days. I haven’t taken time off though – I’m still working on the current chapter. The thing is, I always seem to crave junk food when I’m not feeling […]

Toasty cats

L-R: Pixel, Billy Lee and Jac’s sneakers (which were originally positioned centred in front of the heater to dry, but Billy Lee had other ideas).

Meme

Ever since CW tagged me for this meme, I’ve been wracking my brain trying to think of a suitable actress to play me in a movie based on my life. Finally, I came up with Keiko Agena. I don’t know much about her – I only remembered her vaguely from Gilmore Girls, which I never […]
