what has happened to me in the last few days? glad you asked!
Friday we went to On The Border for dinner. if you'll recall, I was pretty sick the last time we went there, so it was nice to go and enjoy myself there again. we got the OTB Dip Trio - it was amazing. I strongly recommend it. I wanted to try the Sopapillas, but Chris was too full so we didn't. later, we went to see Angels & Demons. it was okay, but they changed some things from the book that I didn't necessarily like. I think I probably would have enjoyed it more if I hadn't read the book. but I am still glad I saw it, so it wasn't too bad.
Saturday we dropped my car off for an oil change and inspection. we stopped at Wendy's before Chris went to Magic. on the way out of the parking lot, Chris originally intended to go left. the traffic was pretty bad, what with it being a Saturday afternoon and all, so he decided to turn right instead. while we were waiting, some guy pulled his car up on the right side of Chris. we didn't see him. so when Chris pulle dout and turned right, he totally hit the car. it wasn't pretty:
I was pretty angry, so I stayed in the car. I didn't want to be that lady on COPS who jumps a guy and claws at his face just because she doesn't like the way he's talking to her man. but yeah, this totally sucks. I mean, he only had the car back for two days after the window replacement, and now this? I told him he should keep it up, soon all the parts of his car will be brand new.
but yeah, so he went to Magic anyway. I hung out with my mum and sister for a while until my car was done and then I went to the Park City Mall with Kim. it was the first meeting of the Magic Widows club. as we were leaving, she noticed a bubble tea stand and innocently asked what bubble tea means. it is funny, I had just been searching the internet for the nearest bubble tea purveyor and the Park City Mall had not been mentioned. I was ecstatic at our luck. I talked her into buying one so that we could try them together.
our reactions were less than favorable. the tea itself was delicious, the "bubbles" were disgusting.
you'd just be sipping your tea, minding your own business, when suddenly there would be a huge glob of gross in your mouth. so unpleasant. we decided the best thing to do would be to drink all the tea...
...and shoot them off the deck into Kim's neighbors' bushes.
we were a but supicious as to the content of the balls (they didn't taste like any tapioca we'd ever eaten), so we decided to dissect them. it seemed to be a uniform grossness throughout.
but yeah, bubble tea did not live up to my expectations. I think it would be okay if the balls were smaller and more firm. it would be less like eating eyeballs that way.
yesterday, my aunt had a picnic for Memorial Day. Chris wasn't feeling well so he stayed home, which was fine. he often doesn't want to stay long enough for my liking, so I wasn't too upset to not have him along. his loss, though, we had a lot of fun. after that, Chris and I went grocery shopping. late night grocery shopping is awesome, let me tell you. it was so empty, no-one was in my way, all the self check-out lines were open. it was great.
today we went to my parents' house for lunch on the grill. I can never have too many hot dogs. they also had a watermelon. my mum and dad complained that it was not ripe enough, but it tasted fine to me. really, though, what do they expect? it is only May, after all.
Chris made bourbon chicken for dinner tonight even though neither of us was very hungry. it was really really good, even if it was a bit spicier than I would have liked. here, have a collage!
I have to get to bed. work is going to be terribly busy tomorrow, I want to be as awake as possible. good night!
