(no subject)

does anyone else think it's weird that you drive by adult video stores and they've got the same christmas decorations in their windows as everyone else? whips, dildos, underwear, sparkly snowman lights? i know there are gifts for everyone but sometimes i think the "religious holiday" idea is completely lost.


don't freak out but i actually exercised, just now. i walk/jogged about a mile and a half. it's a lovely day and it felt great. i have it in my head that it's WINTER and i need to go into system shutdown mode... i hate winter. i hate the clothes i have to wear during winter, i hate feeling cold, i hate my dry hair. i try to shut myself inside as much as possible. but it was actually in the 50s today so i sucked it up and went outside to walk around. it's good for me. i am very very out of shape.

and it's generally been a pretty awesome weekend. friday i had friends over for a dinner party... and i made it into a pampered chef show too. yeah i know i rant on about my hatred for "sell you stuff" parties, but i'm always happy to go to the ones offering me food so i figured a few other people would as well. plus i actually did need some kitchen stuff. and i learned to make some yummy artichoke cup thingies that are not only very simple but allow me to use my food processor in fun ways.

saturday the man had a DJ gig at oeno, the local wine bar. i love that place anyway, so I went to go see him. it's sad how many people watch my husband DJ more than I do. but anyway it was a wonderful night. some neighbors came out, some dj friends came out. oh, and i ran into a bunch of guys from work who were nice to talk with, and i got to watch them (engineers) try to talk with women (normal women) which is good clean fun any day of the week.

marc did a fantastic lounge-y deep house set that i loved hearing. people liked him. it's really cool that he's actually getting jobs playing electronic music these days, maybe wichita is evolving some? i know that getting paid to play hip hop and "hits of the 80s" was eating at his soul.

i did have an unfortunate martini. it was vodka, lime juice, and some sort of fruit juice. it was way too fruity. a martini is supposed to taste like alcohol. i switched to wine the rest of the night, they lost my trust.

finally, I put out a new quiz this weekend: what color is your rainbow? I think all the new quizzes i've cranked out lately are a sign that i'm ready to do something worthwhile with my free time outside of work. i am recovered from grad school. it's time to take flying lessons, or make travel plans, or rebuild my linux box with a new motherboard. the problem is that stupid quizzes are free. and this one makes pretty colors.
