full of grace, all the beauty just keeps shaking me

I'm even dressed pretty today.

rivendellrose says today is the Solstice -- longest day of the year. That had completely slipped my mind. Beautiful day today, appropriately.

LJ's spellchecker suggests for "rivendellrose" ... "Fauntleroy's"

Mary Alice complimented me on my sandals -- gold braid from Target for like seven bucks.

I am getting my hair cut after work today. And I think I might have real food for dinner tonight. (And tackle the kitchenware some more.)

(Hey, we've passed the halfway point of the week.)

I went to SuperCuts after work, and she didn't cut it quite as short as I wanted but I'll give it a few days, and she did this side part thing which totally didn't last through dinner but it looks fine fallen back mostly to its middle part so that's okay.  I still don't really know what I wanna do with my hair.

Waiting for the train back I saw Liz...SGA pres '04 but whom I always associate her with Tangent (what can ya do?).  She said she needs to stop coming to Central Square 'cause she keeps seeing Smithies there :)  Turns out she's living in a co-op around Davis.


I continue to fail at making dinner.

I need:
+ a good way to make mashed potatoes creamy as opposed to just mashed bits of potato
+ a good recipe for pinto beans (think Qdoba would tell me what they do to make their sauce? ;) )
+ a hands-on lesson in using a can opener

(I'm sure I need other stuff, but that's what came to mind tonight.)

The kitchenware seems mostly usable, though I want a new blender and saucepan and probably a long-handled collander and of course the aforementioned flatware.

Oh, the new stuff@night?  I wanna try out some of these drinks.


There was a nice cool breeze last night but I still couldn't fall asleep forever; hopefully tonight will be better.
