Improvements

Thanks to the Christopher, who both e-mailed me a picture of soup, and now apparently is staging an imaginary mob hit to avenge my SSHRC rejection. He's a thoughtful one.

My mood and my condition were muchly improved by an unplanned nap on the couch (how is it that I slept better with journal articles in my lap and my computer at my feet, than when I cleared the couch and laid down properly?)

Meg and I are attempting to figure out a quick supper, but have not grocery shopped in quite a while (this is the nature of April). This sends us to searching the freezer. You find interesting things when you look through the freezer: one pie that I made last summer. Many pie shells. One hot dog. Just one. Egg rolls, also purchased last summer. And many other treasures, which are still edible. Huzzah!

I am wearing: red sweatpants, navy yoga shirt, bare feet.

Songs listened to since I began this post: "Killing Me Softly," Roberta Flack, "At Last," Etta James, "Angel of the Morning," Merillee Rush. I've been listening to mellow music all afternoon.

I think I'm now just compulsively blogging.

OhMIGOSH!! I want to eat year-old eggrolls sooooo badly now.

Meg Persson said...

Hey, they were frozen. This means they have been in a permanent state of paralysis and have not deteriorated in any way, meaning they are still as good as when we bought them. Last August. Yum Yum! When are you coming over for dinner?

You should feel honoured Maryanne, this is the first time I've posted a comment on a blog. Anyhow, I hope you feel better soon, I'm sorry stupid academic people didn't accept your funding application.

Meg, if you've saved those eggrolls for me, I'll come any time.

Meg Persson said...

Haha! You're on!

I hope we're not giving Ky all of the eggrolls...I'll want a couple, too!

As we continue to reap the benefits of last August's trip to Costco. Who knew we'd only need to go once?

Meg Persson said...

Don't forget about the last two pieces of lamb from said Costco trip! We could make a whole meal of almost-year old food. Yum Yum! Maybe we should invite Lynnie too.

Le'ts not forget the entire package of corn on the cob (also a result of that same Costco trip)!

Meg Persson said...

Hey, if we're being this gross, we may as well have the icecream droppings on my car seat from last week for dessert!
