Nathan and I had a great night last night, but it had nothing to do with Chinese food or going to a movie! We decided it was too cold, and he was feeling rough with the start of a cold, and our timing was all messed up anyhow, so we innovated and ordered in from Davanni’s (pizza for him, piece of lasagna for me) and watched Ghostbuster’s on cable. Total BLAST. We were both so glad to be indoors, warm and cozy, that was half the fun.
So tonight we had scheduled the second recording of our Feminine Hijinx podcast, but poor Kim, Maven of Mischief, was terribly sick yesterday, nasty stomach virus that’s knocking everyone down, so we probably won’t pull it off. Hopefully she’s able to rest – vomit-free, ouch – all day today! Be well, Kim!
Hallelujah, She is Risen! Or so Suz exclaimed upon seeing Kim at church this morning, so we are ON, woo hoo! Since the kids are off school tomorrow, they’re coming too, for pizza and rolling their eyes at their goofy moms. Thank you to Wine Genius Stu Williams for helping me out with wine ideas for the podcast – one per week is the idea. We’re starting with a wine Kim brought last week, but after this, Stu’s recommendations, can’t wait. After we have a couple of podcasts under our belts, we’ll make the Feminine Hijinx website live and I’ll put it here on my blog as well. Bet you’re all dying to hear it, ha. The website is pretty incredible, I must say, what with Cory’s photos/concept/web design/recording, Brian’s art design, Susie’s songwriting/performance, and my and Kim’s, um, what have we contributed Kim? We’re reallly good at drinking wine, uh, that’s it! Cheers to the wine drinkers! (Especially those who drink wine in a Jesus Loves You cup!)
Made myself a quick and satisfying lunch, nothing but a tuna sandwich, but with packed-in-olive-oil Genoa tuna, scallions, little lemon, arugula, chopped tomato, and a toasted whole wheat roll, pretty damn delicious. Potato chips would have been incredible with it but 1) we don’t have any, and 2) I hardly need those empty calories. I’ve been not-so-moderate these last couple of weeks, if I’m honest (as if I can hide it, what with this blog, ha), and I can tell. Tight pants. Damn! Good thing I’m having pizza and wine for dinner tonight, nothing like salt and alcohol to make you feel trim in the morning. Good Lord. Hmmm…I think I’ll go grab me some exercise and a glass of water and attempt to keep it all in balance.
Wine+pizza=yummy. And get this, also had some chips, as a little snack-y beforehand, so there, got my chip fix. And Suz baked a chocolate cake, with Killer Chocolate Sauce as icing, fabulous. So properly fortified, Kim, Suz and I recorded the second Feminine Hijinx, while the kids played upstairs. Hoooeeee did we have a blast, and hooooeeee is it on the bawdy (raunchy!) side (and, a bit gross, just so you know, we open with a conversation about www.smellypoop.com, we’re odd and kinda crazy, I admit it), so be warned. Because now our website is l…i…v…e – www.femininehijinx.net – check out it, have a listen, buy some merchandise (we’ve got it all, I’m telling you), and enjoy. Unless you’re related to me, then I’m too uncomfortable with you listening. Seriously. Okay. Good night!
