Well, I made it out of the house today, Internet.
So, this is one of the more tame images that came up when I did an image search for “emerging.” I spent way too much time imaging what “Emerging! Fayrene & Steve” meant (conclusion: ENTIRELY DISTURBING) before discovering it was a cover for a Christian CD that has been pending release since…April of 2007. Oh, Fayrene.
The week has been a blur of all-day pajama fests and intermittent showering (which is to say: AWESOME), but I’m happy to see life returning to some semblance of normal. The roads are much, MUCH better than they were a few days ago, and I didn’t have too much trouble driving in to work this morning. Of course, the alley behind our house – a.k.a. the only way to access our garage – is pretty much a narrow, high-walled maze of snow. It’s like The Shining – The Ride!
Anyhoo, after our impromptu hibernation, I’m totally excited about the coming weekend and following week. Tomorrow, Brad and I are taking a Thai cooking class together, so we can pretend like we’ll make all kinds of delicious Thai cuisine at home instead of going out and paying someone else to do it. See, Brad got me gift certificates to cooking classes for Christmas, and I have to tell you this because he gets SO DEFENSIVE when I tell people this was his gift to me, because he worries that the world will think he is a huge asshole pig who threw a gift-wrapped cooking class brochure at his wife and said, “Here – learn to cook already. Where’s my beer? Shouldn’t you be bearing me a son right now?”
As soon as I opened my gift, he was all “THESE ARE FOR BOTH OF US! TO TAKE TOGETHER! AS A COUPLE! LIKE DATES! WITH ROMANCE!”, because he was so concerned I’d be offended. He also had similar fears of being perceived as a huge dickwad whenever he bought me a KitchenAid mixer for Christmas, even though HELLO, the KitchenAid mixer is – as we all know – almost illegally awesome.
Mine is also PINK, for shit’s sake, and may have spent its first night at home sleeping in our bed.
We also have plans to use our fancy cooking class skills by going out to a fancy Valentine’s Day dinner on Tuesday evening, thanks to a gift certificate (complete with babysitting services) that FoST and husband generously gave us for Christmas. But first, I have my audition on Monday evening. I’m pretty confident I’m not a good fit for the part, but I just want to flex the ol’ acting muscles again (DIRTY), and – crazy as it sounds – I just like auditioning. I mean, it’s basically performing. In front of a captive audience. Who is judging your every move.
Enjoy your weekend, Internet!
