Friday Fun! (Kindle Cover, TRX, Karaoke)

August 12, 2011 6 comments

Hello my lovely readers!  There’s not too terribly much to report this week.  Last weekend Boston suffered a torrential downpour that destroyed my ipod.  Sad day.  I’m a bit poor right now, so I ended up bidding for a used one on ebay and winning.  Here’s hoping it actually works when it gets here.  *knocks on wood*

My kindle cover also broke this week.  The doohickey that holds the kindle in place got bent out of shape (no, I have no idea how).  I called Amazon, and they overnight shipped me a new one for free! Awesome. Sauce.  I will say, I think my kindle cover got a lot more use in its six months of life than the designers perhaps anticipated, lol.

Last weekend I tried out a new recipe–walnut-encrusted baked tofu with spinach l’orange.  It was….a bit more time-consuming than I was anticipating, but also delicious and filling.  I got three meals out of it (one dinner and two lunches).  Not too shabby for the relative cheapness of the ingredients.

My trainer had me try out TRX this week.  There are these straps hanging from the ceiling that you use to help you work out your muscles using your own weight and gravity as resistance.  It was super-duper fun to do push-ups and such in the air, I have to say.  I really loved it.  I’m half-tempted to join one of the gym’s TRX teams now.

I also went out to karaoke with my friend Jill this week.  It was tons of fun, as karaoke generally is.  Although this single lady did not see a single guy she was interested in, the crowd was a good karaoke crowd.  Everyone was good-natured, supportive, and well, tipsy.  Plus there were plenty of people buying drinks for us, which is always a plus. 😉

Happy weekends all!

Friday Fun! (Busy Week, Happy Halloween)

October 29, 2010 2 comments

Oh boy what a busy week it’s been!  It was great to get to see Team Unicorn last Saturday night, even though not all of us could be there.  The pizza was yummy, and Kristi’s apple cake was absolutely scrumptious!  We played Apples to Apples, and it was great to see how well (or not well) we all knew each other.  On Sunday E and I took our friend Nina out for her birthday to an excellent Thai restaurant.  All of the food was simply amazing.  My appetizer was this goat cheese, walnut, and grape pate.  It was to die for.  Then for my main course I had lemongrass tofu with jasmine rice.  And our drinks!  They were so fabulous.  My first one was a gin drink and came with this cucumber garnish.  Then after that we all had blackberry sours.  I think I may have found my new favorite girly drink, haha.

The beginning of my week was full of grad school.  I finally went to a full session of class healthy enough to participate.  That was good!  Then I had a big paper to write, which was what most of my time was spent on.  Last night, I went out for live music and karaoke with my friends.  Nina and I sang Poker Face, and it was awesome.  I have 1 paper, 2 projects, 2 handouts to design for my students, 1 cataloging assignment, and TAing online until the second week of December between me and graduation.  I can’t wait!  But I’ll definitely be busy in the meantime.

I hope you all have super happy Halloweens, no matter how you decide to celebrate. 🙂
