I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen

Even on my lamest day I am AWESOME.

And yes, this is exactly how I’m starting out my week.

This weekend was really low-key but I realized that I love being domestic. Since my mom is out of the country, I’m cooking for my dad and I. On Saturday, I made a sauteed chicken salad (Was going to be fried chicken salad but whatevs, I got lazy) that was super yummy and healthy for both of us. Sunday, not only did I make dinner for Sunday (Lamb chops and rice anyone?), I proceeded to prepare dinner for Monday night so that it’ll be good and ready for us before we settle down to watch House.

When did I become so domestic? I used to think I liked baking more than cooking but cooking is growing on me…I’m thinking a cabbage dish for Tuesday night.

When I wasn’t spending my time being domestic, I was being awesome on being a farmer on Facebook. That’s right bitches. I love FarmVille. Don’t judge me.

Not only do I love FarmVille, I also downloaded a great game called Heroes of Might and Magic 3. I love this game…I used to play it all the time and damn it, I spent hours playing it Saturday night. Why? Because I am AWESOME.

Friday night, however, was all about my love, John Cusack. Somehow, I’d never seen Grosse Pointe Blank (Thank god for the movie collection the roomies and I have at the house)…so I decided to make it a double…Grosse Pointe Blank and Say Anything. I don’t know what it is about that man but John Cusack just makes me weak in the knees.

Lloyd Dobler: [leaving the last of a series of messages on Diane’s answering machine] “Maybe I didn’t really know you. Maybe you were just a mirage. Maybe the world is full of food and sex and spectacle and we’re all just hurling towards an apocalypse, in which case it’s not your fault. I’m been thinking about all these things and… you’re probably standing there monitoring. And one more thing – about the letter. Nuke it. Flame it. Destroy it. – It hurts me to know it’s out there. Later.”

Martin: “What am I gonna say? ‘I killed the president of Paraguay with a fork. How have you been?'”

You know what else is awesome? Hoodies.

You know what else is awesome? Bill Engvall talking about ‘bad wiener days’.

Tell me…what’s AWESOME? (Besides me of course…)

    1. I know, I really do too. And when I was watching it Friday night, I realized that the Boy has a lot of similar characteristics.

          1. yep, every once in awhile I’m entitled..I pick today…live with it! lol

  1. I’ve never eaten lamb before. I’ve never had the opportunity. I’m excited about cooking a lot next week and the week after while Walter is here. Wicked excited. I love to cook (I just don’t like cleaning up after).

    I’ve been playing FarmVille for like ever. It’s so fun! You should try Restaurant City, too. Because they’re the two coolest games on Facebook EVER.

    John Cusack is pretty awesome. He’s a great actor, and Lloyd Dobler is my favorite of his characters ever. Romantic dork. LOVE IT!

  3. Your weekend sounded awesome.

    I love being domestic. I love learning new recipes and trying new things. This is only a recent development since before I couldn’t even make a can of condensed soup (for to add the water, whoops!)

    Starting the week this positive is awesome!

    1. I like trying out new things…I don’t usually use a recipe and if it’s a dish my mom makes, I always add a little something of my own…

      I tend to mix up Turkish traditional dishes with American recipes sometimes.

  4. 1. Hoodies are awesome.
    2. Farmville is addicting. I’ll be in San Fran next month and meeting my friend who developed Farmville. Hoping he would give me a tour.
    3. I’m a very domesticated male. I LOVE to cook. My relatives first found it hard to believe that 1) a male can cook and 2) my female cousins complained to their bf/husbands why they can’t be more domesticated or my male cousins are blaming me for making them look bad.

  5. We could not be more alike. Not only am I a FarmVille addict – as I’ve said before – but I *adore* Heroes of Might and Magic!!! I used to play constantly!

    Oh man, I’m falling in love. Sort of. Not really (I like boys, sorry). But you are far more awesome than before I read this post.
