Monday - Cloudy then rainy

A good day.

I got up before 9 this morning and went into the couch.  I watched/snoozed through some of the pre-Oscar events on TV, then finally settled in to watch.  It was fun this year.  I had 3 people watching with me in Canada and Japan, so it was nice.  There weren’t to many strange things happening for a change which made it a little boring in a way.  Neil Patrick Harris was a good host, but almost too uncontroversial!

Some of the highlights for me were Lady Gaga singing, Graham Moore’s speech about staying weird, J.K. Simmons entreating kids to call home and not text.  Oh, and surprisingly, Patricia Arquette’s speech about equality for wages.  

The awards went on till quite late, around 2 pm.  When it was over I thanked my friends and then shut down my computer.  I had a huge headache so I decided to go out and have lunch.  I needed to run some errands at the same time so it was a good chance to get out.  

I did a little bit of money swapping between accounts, then had a quick lunch.  I had a tofu burger kind of thing.  It had meat in it I’m sure, but also some tofu. I liked it more than I thought I would.  After lunch I went off to the drugstore then did a quick trip round the craft show.  I didn’t buy anything there.  After that, I just came home.

F was a little late tonight, but not that much.  I asked him to bring home more asparagus, which he did.  I made baked asparagus with parmesan which was a Simply Recipes blog find. F made a Japanese motsu dish that was okay.  Of course we got in each other’s way all the time.  I cooked the chicken, set the table and we had a very nice meal.  The asparagus was amazing and it all disappeared!  

F did the dishes and then we had a quiet evening in.  I watched the Oscars again and tried to get F to watch the good bits, but he wasn’t too interested.  He took a bath and I did some postcrossing this evening too.  I managed to write up quite a few cards.  Yay for that.  

So, basically, today was a good day.  Tomorrow I’ll hopefully do a bit of laundry so I can take some clean clothes with me on my trip!  I’m also cooking dinner tomorrow night.  Wish me luck with that.  I have to go, until tomorrow….

You are trying to confuse me, aren't you? The title of this post is January 23. I was convinced I had clicked the wrong button and was looking at older posts. But then I read your post.
