I could have gone out to Polly Esther's tonight for a friend's bachelorette thingy. But that would have required 1. driving somewhere and I wasn't sure where; 2. drinking or pretending to; 3. dancing or avoiding it; 4. figuring out what inconspicuous thing to wear. So, since I didn't want to do any of those things, I scrapped the Polly Esther's idea.
And now I'm bored. Bored, bored, bored. And you have to suffer through this boring entry because you were silly enough to put me on your friends list! *Bwah ha ha!* Though, now that I think about it, just because my entry shows up on your screen doesn't mean that you have to read it. You could just skip it. And that would make me sad. And I would cry bitter tears in my room. And I'm not sure I could live with the rejection. And you'd have THAT on your shoulders to bear. So you'd better just read through the whole darned thing. It's not THAT long. How could I have much to talk about? Didn't we already establish that I'm a boring and bored person?
So Shabbat was nice...Jon and Laura came over to dinner and saw the lovely new blue bedroom. Dinner worked out well. I finished cooking everything with twenty minutes to spare, which was fantabulous. We had matzoh ball soup (sans matzoh balls for Seth), garlic-paprika roast chicken; cauliflower and broccoli, some small roast potatoes (Jon and Laura ate those, they were off limits to Seth), and salad. It was yummy if I do say so myself, and not too terribly carbolicious (except for the matzoh balls and potatoes which were easily avoided). Jon and Laura brought lovely flowers which are now adorning the living room. :-D
After shul today I studied the haftorah portion I'm doing for Shemini Atzeret and then spent some time studying some other things which have been gathering dust on my shelves. I've not been spending enough time learning lately, and I need to correct that.
Eventually, I took my shabbos nap. This is not thrilling me. I haven't been taking naps on shabbos (for months I haven't taken one), but the last two weeks, I've completely crashed in the middle of the day and not woken up for HOURS. I'd really like to not do that. It makes it very hard for me to sleep later.
So anyway, that's my boring life. I think I'm going to go rent a movie. I'd better not get anything TOO exciting, though... I'd better get a nice boring movie to match my nice boring life.
