…for the cold air to stop whistling through our house made out of Swiss Cheese
…for the dishes to get done
…for the laundry to get done
I am hoping that I do not go insane from the saccharine sweetness of the Puppy Bowl. Sure my kids love to watch the puppies do…well what puppies do. I on the other hand had every thought in my head unceremoniously shoved out and aside from what I am writing now none of them have come back. I am scared.
Today, despite being a High Holy Day around here, not because today is Sunday, but because today is the Superbowl, today has a business day. You have your High Holy Days and we have ours. Ours being Thanksgiving, Halloween, Birthdays, the Superbowl, and each and every time the fucktards leave campus for more than a week. On our High Holy Days we try to do nothing other than eat good food, enjoy each other’s company, and celebrate what makes the day special to us.
For each High Holy Day we have a “traditional” food: Thanksgiving is turkey, Halloween is Chinese, Birthdays is Sushi for the adults and something fried and vaguely chicken tasting for the kids (we have hope this will change), the Superbowl is usually wings however this time I was not in the mood to clean the fryer, cut the wings, make the batter, fry, make the sauce, clean up, and THEN relax. Wings for people like me really is a big deal and time consuming. Thus, I decided upon sushi instead. Sure there are several hours of prep time, but I actually enjoy putting my knife skills to work, but what is even better is that clean up is easy. The bowls that are filled up with ingredients stay clean and only need to get tossed into the dishwasher after all is said and done. Another plus is that sushi is healthy. So post Superbowl when I usually feel like I need to be rolled around the house and have the grease from the fryer scrapped off of me with a sharp knife or stick, I should have a full belly and be feeling better about myself.
Okay, I just sat through a Finding Bigfoot commercial, What the Hell? Really? There is nothing left for television. If that is the case I want my own show Finding the Missing Sock, where I and my intrepid team of
explorers investigators arrive at your house with video camera and search for that one missing sock. I smell success. Who do I call?
Sorry, where was I? Oh yeah, so today has been more about business than relaxation. Taxes, FASA (for those of you in college you know what that is), dishes, a paper on Japanese Educational System, putting final edits into On Volunteering, and planning out some blogs down the road. Of course most of this was obliterated by the Puppy Bowl.
