D'oh!

Sometimes I'm really obtuse.

For example... I didn't make the Heinz connection with Theresa Heinz Kerry until a month or so before the election. And here's another one:

I never could figure out what made Paris Hilton special. I mean, okay, she's a rich socialite weirdo, but what made her stand out in the public interest? Really, couldn't figure it out. Until today I saw her described as "Hotel Heiress." Oh. Yeah. Right. Hilton. Like the hotels.

DUH.

Shabbos is coming...

Okay, Shabbos is still three days away, but that doesn't mean I don't have to start planning already!

We are having psujedi, caryabend, beckyfeld and beckyfeld's halfling, Aaron over Friday night. I think, though I'm not positive, that Becky and Aaron are also coming for lunch Saturday. Since I expect to pretty much work a full day on Friday, I need to get everything cooked tonight and tomorrow. So I need to figure out menus. Here's what I've decided on so far, but I don't know if I'm feeling very inspired about it:

Friday night
  • (hopefully) Gefilte fish fritters
  • Salad (haven't decided what kind)
  • Teryaki (sp?) chicken (two people only like white meat, two people only like dark meat, which ruled out a couple other chicken ideas I had)
  • potato kugel
  • green beans (or broccoli kugel, but I'm not sure)
  • Rice
  • Er, some sort of inspired dessert. Maybe snickerdoodles.

Saturday Lunch
  • Salad
  • Rice
  • Meatballs
  • Some sort of other side dish
  • Dessert (fruit maybe? I dunno)

Any suggestions????????

I think the key to that "10 things I've done that you probably haven't" meme is to be as specific as possible. For example, many of us might have had flashbacks of The Wizard of Oz... but how many of us had said flashbacks in Bulgaria? Several of us have probably ridden unicycles, but how many of us were in Pakistan wearing red sweaters and yellow bloomers when we did it?

I haven't done either of those things. I'm sort of sad.
