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…)

      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.

    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!

    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!

    • PrincessQ September 21, 2009, 1:57 pm

      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.

  • phampants September 21, 2009, 1:34 pm

    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.

      1) Hoodies are the bomb!
      2) That’s pretty awesome
      3) Hahaha, that’s great. I love a man that can cook!

  • Liebchen September 21, 2009, 1:47 pm

    I loved this post just from the title. “Say Anything” is a classic and John Cusack…well, he’s my favorite.

  • Just A Girl September 21, 2009, 1:50 pm

    ZOMG I love John Cusack so much. Him and Jeremy Piven together is too much sexy for me. THAT is awesome.

    • PrincessQ September 21, 2009, 1:59 pm

      I recently discovered Piven so it’s awesome going back and watching movies he did when he was younger.

  • Patrick September 21, 2009, 3:31 pm

    I’ll tell you what’s NOT awesome- burning your tongue and mouth over the weekend- now everything tastes like plastic.

      Ouch! How’d you manage that?

  • Mike September 21, 2009, 3:54 pm

    Me and my stoner buddies in college use to play heroes of might and magic. We could make a match go for 12 or more hours.

    Sometimes an entire weekend.

    • PrincessQ September 22, 2009, 1:46 am

      I don’t think I’ve ever played that long.

  • f.B September 21, 2009, 7:09 pm

    We were so so so domesticated this weekend. Cleaning. Cooking. Affixing things to the wall to hold things we cook with…

    Well, that and a LOT of drinking.

    • PrincessQ September 22, 2009, 1:47 am

      Nice. I miss drinking.

  • Alice September 21, 2009, 9:09 pm

    john cusack = automatic awesome, but man oh man, say anything? i almost don’t want to watch that movie just because i love it SO MUCH in my memories and don’t want to find out it’s actually bad in parts or something 😉
    .-= Alice´s last blog ..if nothing else, just click the merkin link =-.

    • PrincessQ September 22, 2009, 1:47 am

      There are no bad parts to it. NONE.

  • MinD September 22, 2009, 6:40 pm

    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.
