Pasta and Funnies by the CreekMay 18, 2012 at 7:00 am | Posted in Dinner | Leave a comment
Happy Friday Ya’ll. This week went by fast! And by fast I mean that in the most pleasant way. Last night I ventured with my reheated pasta dish and one bottle of berry wheat beer (thank you Beffy for those like 5 months ago!) to watch the Alive at Five show. And yeah that pasta dish, standard, not amazing, but since this is a food blog, it had peas, kale, navy beans, some vanilla yogurt (which was odd in actuality) and lots of random dried herbs. The addition of a sauce kind of thing would have greatly increased the eatability of that dish, but since it was only for me, who gives!?
As I listened to the swing music, the Natty Beaux’s anyone??, and devoured those carbs, I finished off the amazing crazy strange funny book from Jenny Lawson – Let’s Pretend this Never Happened. That woman has the most interesting brain I have ever had the pleasure of delving into. Most of the insane stories were almost too crazy for me to find them funny, this is why I think I’m weird sometimes. Like how The Office can be too much? or too unrealistic that I just can’t bring myself to laugh. Anyways, she is a hoot. There was one good quote at the end of the book, “Because you are defined not by life’s imperfect moments, but your reaction to them. Because there is joy embracing rather than running screaming from – the utter absurdity of life.” As I look back on my twenties, there have been MANY utterly absurd moments, but I have always left those events with a good dose of it happened for a reason all while being thankful. I’m happy with myself that I am starting to question or take a moment before I react too quickly to any situation and I know that is going to help me through my dirty thirties. (yeah they probably won’t be dirty, but it just sounds cool.)
And on that prophetical note, I leave you with this song that has make me feel so chill and cool this week and my weekly manicure. Peace baby, peace. Peace is coming my way and I am embracing it with a subtle smirk on my face.
