I went to a dinner theatre the other day on the tip of a new friend of mine from the store. It was about an hour away, but for such a unique experience, it was really worth it. The drive was beautiful. Open land stretches out for miles, the grass which usually bears the dull gold color familiar from our school colors, had been transformed to a verdant green and over it all the sun gazed tossing blanket over light over hills and valley, the landscape causing it to wrinkle and curl. This, I remarked on, with far less poetry, over and over to my friend who accompanied me on my adventure. The landscape came to a stop giving way to much closer signs and buildings that told us that we had finally reached our destination: Centennial, population 100.
The town looks like it was lifted from Frontier Land, except lifesized and far more real. We were greeted warmly the moment that we walked in the door. I politely asked where the dinner theatre was and we were sheparded forthwith to the dining area. We were seated at a community table with two couples, one a young couple, about our age and going to the university and another couple that used to work as teachers, but now were retired. I decided that it would be very awkward not to talk to them, so I ended up striking up a conversation with the table and by the end, we knew each other fairly well and I have to admit that I was very fond of them.
The dinner was a choice between ribs and sirloin kabobs (and vegetable, but I didn't see anyone with that). I had the kabobs which were cooked with oinions and peppers on a metal kabob and served with a sharp auju which I found was excellent. I ate almost all of it but ended up requesting a box which I believe I ended up leaving there out of my own stupidity.
The play was as funny as advertised. It was a play called the Foriegner, you may have heard of it. It is about a shy man, who admits to being fairly boring, who people are led to believe is a foriegner who cannot speak a word of English. Forced to keep up appearances, the now 'foriegner' begins to reinvent himself into a wilder and crazier character than his pervious self could have dreamed. I highly recommend it.
In the end, I said goodbye to my new friends at the community table and set out, my headlights before me, to trek away from the warm spectacle I left behind and onward through the swathes of darkness. My friend and I agreed that it was a very fun adventure.
“An imaginary friend can’t live underwater forever!

Present company excluded fido.” - Bloo, Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends
My roof is leaking… leaking, leaking, leaking and I don’t know how to stop it. Well, I do, but I don’t actually know how to do it. Apparently it has something to do with looking at the roof tiles and looking in the attic and figuring out where the leak is and then ripping out all the roofing and putting it all back down again… and of course fixing the hole in the ceiling.
So I called my friend who is renting me the house and… left a message. So right now I’m inside, looking out at the miserable rain and having a small trickle of it joining me inside… grrreeeeat. Blasted house with its BLASTED leaky roof! “It’ll be cheaper” “It could be fun to live on my own” WHAT WAS I THINKING?!?!
You know, except for the fact that it may be causing permanent damage to the house, it’s actually pretty funny! I’ve got this stupid pot under it and its splashing all over the place, lol. What can you do?
I make stuffed avacados
Wednesday. 6.4.08 6:29 pm
I made stuffed avacados today. They are pretty good.
1/4 chopped red pepper
1/4 chopped red onion
2 chopped large hard boiled eggs
1/4 chopped kosher dill pickle
chopped garlic clove
squeeze of lemon juice
1 salmon fillet
1/4 of italian dressing
Cook the salmon with lemon juice, the garlic clove and some onion. That should take about 20 minutes (at 375) during which you should cook the eggs if you haven't already. You'll know the salmon is done because it flakes easily (you'll see what I mean). Then, combine everything together in a bowl (except the avacado) and stir mightly until its evenly mixed. Then, slice the avacados open, take out the pit, and stuff (see 'stuffed' avacado?) the empty hole where the pit used to be with a healthy amount of the mixture so that it not only filled the center but sticks to the top as well. Put in the fridge for 30 minutes (or eat right away.. I haven't tried it that way, but you can) and then serve. This is a combo of a recipe from cooks.com and eatingwell.com. Yuuummmmm.
Today is a good day
Tuesday. 6.3.08 8:55 pm
Today was a good day. I woke up at three, which was annoying and then again at 6 with my alarm and then again at 8:30 without it. I lazed about for a little while and then got to work. I dropped by my sponsor's office who wasn't there, but I talked to our secretary, who is very nice, and so it wasn't a complete loss. The weather was beautiful today. There is nothing so green as my town right now. Maybe it is because of the contrast it has to the rest of the year, or the very good mood that I am in, but I find it that it is quite.. beautiful!
I went to the gym and had a pretty good workout (found out that I have NO IDEA how to exercise my triceps) and got a FREE exercise magazine called Runner's World which gave me the idea that I should run a 5K. They have a way to prepare for a 5K in a month, but I think that I am going to just aim for "getting used to regular exercise" for this month and then have the goal for the summer be the 5K. My sister says she might join me too, which makes me happy.
Then I went to our local gaming shop and met the shopkeeper there. He was a fascinating person, had done all sorts of gaming, knew all sorts of people. He told me I ought to check out this play, which I might if I can get to it. I found out that they game on Sundays mostly, so I'm hoping to join them some weekend soon.
So yes, all in all a fine day. Tommorow, I will have a friend over for some salmon salad avacados (which I hope are good) and then perhaps... I don't know. Whatever folks do on Wednesday nights...

Where is the strangest place you ever met someone?
Saturday. 5.31.08 7:01 pm
Where is the strangest place you ever met someone? I am working on meeting more people and I thought this might be an interesting question to know the answer to. I guess I should say mine... the strangest place that I met someone was on the end of bus route in the middle of nowhere... but I don't know them anymore.
