First of all, I HATE the term “in real life,” because that would mean that all of you, that I don’t know face to face, are some sort of figment of my imagination and that would be crazy¹…
There was some family drama with The Social Guy moving out. It’s been sad – heart wrenching – oh, so difficult. But, it’s not the place to talk about here.
We celebrated The Brianiac’s birthday. We had lunch in The Big City (Minneapolis) with My Sissy and her office side-kick. My Sissy taught The Brainiac how to order items that are not on the menu. He enjoyed a plate of wings for his birthday lunch:
After lunch we got a tour of the ‘guts’ of the skyscraper My Sissy works in. IT WAS SUPER COOL!
The Brainiac picked braised pork belly/venison lettuce wraps, and homemade pasta (tossed in olive oil and seasonings) for his birthday dinner:
We finished his birthday with creme brulee, because our family isn’t made of a bunch of cake eaters ;)
The Artist had her lunch just a nudge away from going down the gutter. I guess that’s why you don’t put things on top of the car when your hands are full? This also reminded me of my post about Star Von Bear that I was going to re-post for you on Retro Friday – but I failed to do so…make it easy on me and my Benadryl stupor. Click the link “Star Von Bear” above, it’ll take you right to it.
We had a Family Birthday Party where we celebrated The Brainiac’s birthday and My Sissy’s birthday. She shared brilliant words with us like “If you don’t ask for what you want then you’re most likely not going to get it.²” And then I proceeded to forget to make her prosciutto wrapped, goat cheese, with asparagus. The ONE thing she wanted for dinner. We all learned a lesson that sometimes you can ask for what you want and still not get it – but not because people don’t want you to have what you want – sometimes people have ADD or just forget – oops! We also spent most of the night talking with our hands making <quote marks>. I’m really not sure why that was so funny, but it was <quote mark> at the time <quote mark> <quote mark> very funny<quote mark>.
We wrapped up the week NOT watching the Super Bowl and cooking My Sissy’s dish without her. (I also spent a bit of time on Facebook when I shouldn’t have. Don’t tell anyone, okay?)
Whew! What have you been up to?
¹Also this week? I broke out in hives, most likely from the Prozac, so it’s possible that I *am* allergic to sanity…just sayin’
²She actually talked about this during The Brainiac’s Birthday lunch (hence the whole “order something off the menu”), but we talked about it again at dinner when I failed to give her the ONE dish she actually asked for. Again, <quote mark> sorry <quote mark> about that.
