With all this warm air I have been daydreaming lately of having a backyard and have bbq get togethers, with good food to please the senses, pretty plates and glasses, and good company.
Luckily I have a stovetop grill and have been sustaining my fantasies by grilling recipes on it for Niel and I.
I am also putting together a food blog. I will announce when it will be up.
The discount Gods took pity on me and threw me a sale. They knew how I suffered looking for a certain dress and skirt to go on sale. When the sale came, neither item was available. Yesterday I planned on begrudgingly paying full price for two other items that I did not want to lose such as I did previously. I happily discovered both were on sale and available. Yes!
We watched Along Came Polly last night. I wanted to see it for a while and thought I would enjoy it. I so did not. The only good part of the film was the ending was not a typical Hollywood one. Otherwise I thought the acting was mediocre. I know movie/TV show makers usually try to condense the moral of the story within a half an hour to two hour time span so I do not get angry when this happens. I expect it. I do have to say how amazed I am by PR people who can spin the plot to make a movie seem a certain way, but the film is about something else entirely.
Afterwards we viewed Extreme Dodgeball on the Game Show Network. That was a lot of fun to watch. Two of their commentators were semi famous people. The floor host was Jeri from Survivor and the booth host was a runner up who previously competed for an ESPN gig. I forget his name. I think it was Zack. Niel would know for sure.
This heat in the city has been intense and it is not even Summer yet. On Wednesday afternoon I went to a health fair for one of our clients to represent my newspaper. My coworker and I were beet red by the time it was over. I have very fair skin so this happens easily.
Tomorrow the Olympic Torch will be coming through my little neighborhood. We plan on watching this momentous event. I am excited.
