I want it Now!

I’m feeling really empty on blog material this evening, but I fear incurring the whine wrath of Veruca Salt, so here we go anyway…

1) Went to Waterbar SF tonight for $1 happy hour oysters.  They were good, but now I feel weird.  Apparently oysters, random fruity cocktail, and peppermint bark do not make for a nourishing square meal.

2) I’ve been completely wrapped up in my latest work project, and that’s been occupying the vast majority of my time and thoughts.  Hence, lack of brain space for generating blog-worthy material.

3) My mom once wondered why we needed so many skillets in the house.  “I don’t even have this many!” 

This is why.

4) New upstairs neighbor gets up around 6 am (for real!) and starts walking around (how dare he!).  Unfortunately the floors are wood and his kitchen/living room is above my bedroom.  I haven’t been well rested in a month and the bags are starting to coalesce under my eyes and reveal my pushing-thirty-ness.

The corollary to this is that his bedroom is above our living room, where we play pop/rock music and/or action/sci-fi programming until midnight-ish.  So he probably hasn’t been well rested for a while either?

All of this got me Zillowing housing prices in Austin, TX today.  I may actually be able to afford my dream house (close to everything, no surface-sharing neighbors) there!

5) On Monday, I saw someone pick a cup of chopped fruit (fork included) out of an overflowing public trash can and start eating it.  I found this simulataneously gross and heart warming- what a nutritious, delicious, and otherwise expensive snack (assuming the germ thing works out ok)!

6) Speaking of pushing thirty, everyone I know who has rounded that corner seems to accept it with grace and happiness.  Maybe because what other option does one really have? 

I don’t think that’s going to be me.  With a little over a year to go, I’m digging my heels in as hard as they will go.  I’m planning to apply myself to having extreme amounts of non-fun just to make the time pass extra slow… Yup, that’ll probably work.

7) If I had been more organized about this, I could have turned this into 3 or 4 posts.  Instead I poured the entire well into this one and now it’s gonna be dry for a spell.  Oh well. 

Stay back, Veruca.

5 Thoughts on “I want it Now!

  1. When you are feeling bloggy, you should write a bunch of posts (or you could have separated this out) and then schedule the other ones to automatically post after a few days. You’ll be blogging more and your Verucas will be happy! Well, at least temporarily happy.

    I dread 30 as much as you. Probably more since it’s closer to me, you’re not even 29 yet! And yes, those 30+ people have accepted it with grace, but happiness?? Surely not.

    And yes, you do have too many skillets. I had the same situation in college – we wouldn’t wash anything so instead we had tons of skillets/pots/pans. Now I only have a few and even then I use the same one over and over. If it’s a really great one, it’s worth washing to use right then rather than use the inferior one that’s already clean. So maybe you just need to get one really good skillet and you’ll find that you can safely ditch the rest – think of the space you’ll gain!

  2. When we consolidated our skillet empire after getting married, we had many more than this. (2 kitchens worth + wedding presents). We’ve already gotten rid of all the bad ones, these are all basically brand new and awesome! The skillet hanging rack above the sink (from IKEA) holds all the pots so space is not an issue.

    I feel like I finally have enough skillets, because before they would always all be dirty when I wanted to use them. Now that never happens! My willingness to cook is unhampered by my unwillingness to clean, so the world is as it should be.

  3. Oh, I think you have Plenty to blog about and not enough time to do it.
    Blogging gets bumped off the daily list by more rewarding and important activities, I’ll wager. What’s wrong with that?
    Or, can you use blogging to help you with another goal?

  4. There is definately a great deal to know about this subject.

    I really like all the points you have made.
