As I drove home today, I, no kidding, hit every single green light which I normally sit at a red (long ones, mind you). I was certain I owed a major sacrifice to some deity. I had to work late and STILL got home at pretty much the normal time. I finally remembered to call and set an appointment to do my taxes. Hallelujah.

I am still tired and draggy, so I did not go to the gym today. My alarm went off at 11:45 last night instead of at 7:15 this morning. I don't understand electronics, sometimes. I want the snot to go away. I decided to have a glass of wine with my leftover soup. I made cream of chicken last night - simple: 3-quart pan half-full of water, two chicken breasts (with bone); cook until chicken done, pull breasts out, throw in handful of long grain wild rice. While that's cooking, tear meat off breasts and throw back in. Slowly whisk in about a half-pint of heavy cream. Add a little brown rice. Salt and pepper, about a tablespoon of garlic powder and onion powder, then some pearl onions, corn, and peas. Cook until rice is done. Yummy. It went very well with rosemary Italian crackers I found at Trader Joe's yesterday. Despite heavy cream and cake, I weighed in at 170 this morning at my "formal" weigh-in, which means another seven pounds successfully removed. Yeehah.

I have had a headache most of the day.

Today we had a unit meeting/birthday luncheon, which spanned about three hours. Fortunately, there wasn't a lot of work; however, because of the backlog from the morning, we ended up staying until 5:30 to get the last of the scanning done (there are only two scanners).

I have three (or is it four?) reviews to do this week, but I may end up doing them all tomorrow if my brain revives. It's almost time for Lost. Fortunately, they're all really pretty good. Anyone remember John Corbett from Northern Exposure? He's a really good singer, too. He's going to be releasing his first solo CD next week. Dig in and enjoy.

Yay for the yummy soup, boo for the snot. Must go home and sleep. Must get up early. File corruption. Pixelated photos. No fun.

Condolences.

Hopefully I can catch all the sleep I need on the weekend and get back to the gym next week.

Now I'm hungry. Thanks a lot. *g*

I saw John Corbett's video yesterday and liked it. So the whole CD lives up to it?

No problem. ;-) Hey, it's a pretty healthy soup, cream notwithstanding!

Yes, I think it does. It would be my favorite of the ones I'm doing this weekend (also including Bob Delevante and Shooter Jennings) if I hadn't also gotten Dale Watson (Dale always trumps everyone, he's like having an Ace in my hand). John has a great delivery, much like he does as an actor, with a good clear tenor. I think actors who become country singers seem to do a lot better than actors who try to be rock singers. Not sure why. ;-D
