I have no idea why I’m still so sleepy this morning.  I stopped at Pilot for some coffee (which, if you believe it, is actually better than the coffee we have here in the office…), and finished off most of the 20-oz cup, but man I am still so sleepy.  Didn’t even stay up too late last night.  I totally fell asleep reading, but I think it was around 11.  Stephen went to a show that I decided not to attend, and I woke up briefly after the show was over, but that still should not account for the heaviness of my eyelids this morning.  May have to go out briefly on my lunch break JUST so that I can get out of the stifling office atmosphere and into the (presumably) lovely spring day.  I’m planning to go to Beaman after work anyway, but any extra sunshine will be such a welcome contrast to the fluorescent bulbs…….

In an effort to wake up and practice my fine motor skills (erm), I decided to mehndi my hand this morning.  That’s right, I just verbed that word.  Makes me want to buy henna so that I don’t have Sharpie all over my skin, but eh.  I’m not even sure where to get henna.  Michael’s?


Was fun.  Hand pretty now.

Speaking of pictures, I meant to upload this one before now but forgot.  This was from…..um, last Saturday I think.  We went to Beaman and did the 4.5 mile trail, then hit up Kroger for food and beer.  Went back to Stephen’s where we grilled potatoes and hamburgers, and it was SO GOOD OMG.  Stephen likes to doctor up the meat, and so these burgers were part pork, part beef, with stuff like mustard, spices, bleu cheese, etc mixed in.  OK I wasn’t paying all that much attention to what he put in them.  The best part though, was that he stuffed them with cream cheese.  Guys, believe me when I tell you that you want to start putting cream cheese on (or inside) your burgers from here on out.  Make it as much as necessity as salt and pepper.  You’ll thank me.  At least, your tongue will.


Oh, and there was extra bleu cheese on top, with bacon and sauted onions and iceburg lettuce.  Went promptly into a food coma after eating dinner, which was fine as all we had to do was move to the other room to watch a movie.

Man that was a good burger.  I’m getting hungry just looking at it.

Have I complained yet about my computer?  I seem to recall saying something about I forgot my PC wasn’t a Mac and I didn’t keep up with the antivirus software at all.  So Stephen recommended that I just wipe the hard drive and start over from scratch, rather than scrapping the computer which was my first inclination.  It’s turning into something of a thing, because I didn’t have any recovery DVDs for reinstalling things like the operating system, and when I tried to reset the thing to the factory settings it decided to crash.  Sooo had to order the appropriate (I hope) software from HP (which ought to be shipping today and delivering soon!!!).  I’m hoping that I can get it to work again soon.  Would be ever so nice.

Well.  Anyway.
