Ah, young love…

So I’m ecstatic about spending time with Shannon.
Last night she was really beat, soe we didn’t go dancing as orignially planned.
And when she said, “But you were really looking forward to dancing tonight”, I, the newly-crowned king of cheese, said “I was just looking forward to spending time with you.”
What has happened to me?
Over the weekend, came by, and and I cooked. Well, I cooked, and everyone else helped.
Made what I call “French Bagels” and some delicious vegetarian mushroom-tomato lasagne, a nice tossed salad, and even some rice that we didn’t get around to eating.
So we hung out, got baked, and slept a lot.
Sat. night’s show marked the closing of The Sixteenth Sheep, and afterwards most of us went out to eat at a restaurant called “Shakespeare”.

Ok, stop laughing.


Well, after that, we drifted home, and Shannon and I hung out at my place, and watched some Storyteller stories. It was a lot of fun.
Sunday I went to the Frankel School over in French Hill after work, as I was invited to come stage manage their show.
It was an interesting audition, as not many people showed up. I was offered the part of the innkeeper (probably a bit of song and dance, and a lot of talking). I don’t know if I can work this into my schedule. I have a career to think about, after all. 🙁
It’s taken all day to write these few snippets, as work has been crazy.
I’m trying to figure out how to get a laptop so I can work on some projects while in Miluim for about 3 weeks to stay sane.

    Expect a great deal of cheesiness in the future.

    Thanks for the encouragement.
    I’d rather have the cheese on aforementioned bagels, but hey, ya win some, ya lose some.

    But that’s okay (sniff, sniff) I am not insulted … unless you didn’t enjoy yourself over here (sniff, sniff).
    What do you need out of a laptop? If you can live with the stupid crack, you could probably use mine. I mean, I guess I can trust you with it, right?

    what are french bagels?

    and great new icon!

  • miketheman

    French bagels are where you take some onion (or favorite type) bagels, sliced in half, lightly toast them, rub a clove of garlic in, and then brush with olive oil, and toast a bit longer.
    They come out quite yummy, esp. for those that LOVE garlic. 🙂

    Remind me what OS your laptop is running?
    I’m trying to revive mine in to some semblance of functionality with Win98 and possibly a flavor of Linux. The main problem is that my Laptop is quite unhelpful when it comes to Linux Power Management.
    I’ll probably end up multi-booting 98 and Mepis.

  • joshbrown

    I am pretty sure that we put either Win2k or Win98 on my laptop.
    But the big problem is that stupid crack, of course.

  • kahnman

    how about cheese on buns…

    [drum roll]

    Come on, you were asking for it. 🙂
    Frightening photo. Very.

    It looks like I was able to reconstitute my Laptop to semi-working status.
    Some kinks to work out, but nothing serious.
    Thanks for the offer, but I don’t think the cracked screen can help me much, as the majority of what I’d bring is visual.
