Life Out Here

Just a small way to keep my friends and family, who are strewn about the country, in The Know about my life in Seattle.

Boring in Seattle

It hasn't been an exciting week. That's why I haven't written anything.

Monday - I jogged! For about 15 blocks total! Feelin' the burn.
But ordered a pizza and opened a bottle of wine when I got home. I think this is why I'm not losing weight. Monday Night Football. Colts won! I had 3 glasses of wine and rooted them on in our office as Steve was having a bad day and needed some alone time. I crashed around 9:30.

Tuesday - Walked Greenlake with my girlfriend, Daniela and her 3 month old, Jonah. Such a cutie! Good, long, 3 mile walk. But cold. Man. Pasta and veggies for dinner. Gilmore Girls and My Name is Earl on the telly. In bed by 10pm.

Wednesday - Fun day at work. A co-worker went with me to pick up my new nose ring and grab some sushi at lunch. Then cake that afternoon for a work thing. Yummy. Errands and shopping after work. I wondered around the christmas section of Fred Meyer for an hour. I love this time of year. I refrained from buying anything though. Meanwhile, Steve saw a blue C in his search for images at work and took it as a sign to go to dinner at Blue C Sushi. I'm all about signs. Home at 9pm to watch Lost, while curling up in bed. Asleep at 10:10pm.

Thursday - Stopped at Safeway to pick up stuff to make a broccoli dish for the potluck at work on Friday. I was tempted to buy yellow roses because 1) they smelled awesome and 2) they make me think of mom. But I'm saving money for mine & Steve's 5 year anniversary in January (the 5th, to be exact) so I didn't. I just stood and smelled them for a while. Home in time to make dinner (fried brown rice pilaf) and start a fire (in the fireplace, for those of you who didn't know we had a fireplace....). Good TV night - Joey, Will & Grace, CSI then ER. Late night. Asleep at 11:15pm.

Then a lazy day at work today. It's Veteran's Day so the doctors are all off. But the clinic is open. Whee. Big potluck, too much food, brownies that ooze butter. Yum.

I don't know what Steve and I are going to do tonight, but we're both in the mood to do something. Probably pool at the Lock & Keel. I pay for it for 2 days (very, very smokey) but we always have so much fun. Speaking of smoke - a law just passed in the election Tuesday that bans smoking in public places and vehicles in the city. Maybe elsewhere, I don't know. So no more smoking in bars or restaurants. I wonder what will happen to their attendance? It's not like people will stop going to a particular bar because they can't smoke; they can't smoke in any of them. Should be interesting. People will have to go outside and stay 25 feet away from the door or windows. A lot of people are torn about it, me included. I'm just happy that I'll be able to breathe the next day after a night at a bar.

And that's life here in a nutshell. Pictures to come this weekend. Promise.

You got a new nosering??? And just why didn't I know this? I REALLY liked the stud and was hoping you would keep it!

Oh, you haven't even seen the stud! I did put the ring in and the ball is much, much bigger than my old ring. So I put the stud back in. I like it. I know you're much happier about the stud, so maybe I'll bring the ring with me in December just in case you make me angry :-)
