Whew, I am glad Monday is over. My cranky pants really do not fit me well and are not very flattering. It was a long day. Work frustrations and I ended up working until 9:30 last night, so my evening was shot. The plus side is Bunn is sending us a replacement coffeemaker by FedEx. This is the current solution to coffee:
I pour the boiling water over the grounds in the filter. The coffee actually is fine this way, but annoying to have to keep topping off the water. However, having coffee is good. The Bunn is a good machine and makes good coffee with the right temperature for brewing (200 degrees F). We are coffee snobs and admit it.
Regarding YOLO: For those that don’t know, it stands for You Only Live Once. So for instance, someone sees an outfit they like, but shouldn’t really buy it and then does saying “YOLO!!” I didn’t know what it meant for a long time, and I kept seeing that and thinking of Rolos. Then I finally found out what it meant. Actor Jack Black actually said that “YOLO” was “Carpe Diem” for stupid people. I am not a fan of Jack Black, but I think I love him just a little bit now for that.
I guess Pixie would have to say YOLNT (you only live nine times). Okay, that was lame…
Lunch of Champions today.
I had to run for an errand at noon, so lunch came with me.
I got back for lattes today.
Icy latte with dried pineapple. The snack of 2012 for Lori.
We decided to go all gourmet for dinner today. John cooked up some maple glazed salmon and I made up some spinach rice.
This rice is really good. I will have to do a recipe post for it. Simple and you get some veggies in there, plus it is a pretty color.
I had to work for a while after dinner since I was away earlier in the day. One of the times when I don’t like that my pay is based on production. With working late last night and today, I am beat. John offered to buy me a kiddie cone, and he didn’t have to twist my arm very hard. We took an extended walk and ended up at the ice cream window.
My kiddie cone of coffee ice cream. This is such a great size.
They actually tried to give me a small (which is huge), even though I ordered a kiddie cone – but it was waaay too much ice cream. I hated to have them redo it – but it was not what I wanted or ordered.
Nice to sit in the twilight and eat this, too. Getting out and having that was helpful. I guess food is comforting 😀
