One of the things that's so nice about daylight savings time, once you get used to it, is that it remains light here until 8PM.

Later on in the summer, it'll be light out until after 9PM.

The long days lend themselves to all sorts of activity. Tuesdays and Thursdays, Missy and I dedicated to our practice walks in advance of the Breast Cancer 3-Day. Wednesday is game night at the office.

Mondays are going to be my day to sit and vegetate with my cats, I think. Here they are now, curled up at my side, following me when I wander into another room, then coming back out to sit beside me again. They are faithful little shadows and I love them.

Yesterday was the lovely, long and lazy day that I'd been looking forward to all week. We belated realized that it was Easter and figured it would be easier to buy groceries than to stalk restaurants for brunch. We made bacon and eggs and had a pastry chaser. Well. Okay. Several pastry chasers.

You know what the best part is? He isn't allergic to anything and can pack away the sweets as well as I can. :) There's nothing more lonesome than dating someone who doesn't eat the same sorts of things you do in relative quantities. We don't have to like everything exactly the same, but there needs to be enough overlap to make dining together an experience instead of an ordeal.

Speaking of ordeals, poor Rob and I were once again stymied in our attempt to have dinner at Jak's. By the time we got to the restaurant, the wait for a table (they don't do reservations) was nearly two hours. Once again, we headed to Outback instead. A steak dinner is never disappointing, so long as the steak is done right and the company good. And despite not being at the restaurant we wanted to try out, dinner was great :)


  1. I know exactly what you mean. It also sucks dating someone that is allergic to cats. Eating yummy stuff together is important. It is like sleep and sex, should be done together with shared desires. :)

  2. Yeah but will he get a pedicure if that's the only way he can spend quality time with you? =D

    Damn, I wish I had a way to make sense out of a word verification like "rfukdqyg." It's just begging for interpretation!!

  3. He heard me comment on how much I love pink cookies (they seem to be somewhat of a Seattle thing: shortbread cookies with creamy pink frosting) and brought me one.

    Sigh happily...

    I love pink cookies.

    And he's all right, too. :D
