Last night Mr. K and I enjoyed some angelfood pasta tossed in lightly sauteed garlic and red pepper flakes and olive oil with some nice baked chicken. I added a lil salt n peppa to mine, because I’m not the biggest fan of pasta (in general), and I usually use red sauce to mask the taste. And what did I think? It was simple, yet delicious. And Mr. K is a fabulous chef. He can cook for me any day.
Then we headed over to the new condo of one of his teacher friends for apps, drinks and a housewarming party. I was super excited at the eats, because they eat vegan, so I knew I could eat everything! I indulged in a few handfulls of puppy chow (heaven…I will be making this again…soon. Possibly for roadtrip to CA, but I’ll have to convince Mr. K he cannot eat it in the car.). I also had a few Club crackers with the spinach & aspargus dip, some fresh veggies with the vegan ranch dip and about 2 glasses of a less than impressive Pinot Grigio Mr. K & I picked up from the local wine shop. I will not be picking up that wine again. It smelled awful, tasted better than it smelled, but was not a good wine.
This morning I realized I had left some of my gym gear at work, so I opted to sleep in — best.idea.ever — and walk the two miles to work from Mr. K’s, adding on an extra mile to my normal walking portion of my commute from my apartment. On the way I stopped at Caribou for a soy cappuccino, which I ended up throwing out about halfway through due to the awfully burnt coffee (at least I only paid half price for it since they messed it up!), and then stopped an Einstein’s for a bagelwich of eggs & turkey sausage. I wanted egg whites, but they were out, so I just had an extra large breakfast today. I also dug into a delicious orange at work.
Now I’m at work, staring at the bear walls of my cubicle. I’m slowly packing up my books, notes, personal belongings. I can’t believe I am only coming into the office two more mornings (tomorrow since the movers are coming I’ve gotten the a-okay to work from home). Its really here, I’m really becoming a graduate student. Cue the spaz session — OMG I’m going to be a student again in a month!!!!!!!!!
Now, deep breaths…
