1. I am not worried about LJ disappearing. Not a touch. Servers don't need a lot of people watching them, one, and two, the economy ain't strong. The remaining folks (only a 5th were cut) probably have to work more. That doesn't mean bye bye LJ in my book.
2. I had a 90 minute massage today and I feel loose-y goose-y and fancy. Never will I have an hour long massage. That's when it's starting to feel the best! (20 minutes on my feet and ankles alone? YES PLEASE.)
3. Sushi for lunch. My tum is happy, but I'll be hungry again in an hour, you watch.
4. Some dude friended me over on Facebook and I knew the name, but I couldn't think of how I knew the name. Turns out I went to a dance with him in college (Sadie Hawkins. For those keeping track) and we made out a few times. The last time he paused during some kissage (remember: Mormon. We're talking chaste 50s style make out) and he asks me for advice about his girlfriend.

Did you need a moment? Yeah. So. Typical. Utah boys: keeping the virginal chaste ones pure until wedding night, and messing around with the naughty Mormon girls on the side. And the funny thing is, I thought I was the virginal chaste one!

Oh. He's married. To that girlfriend. I left him a note on his wall reminding him of our last encounter, and how the heck was he? *G* Douche nozzle.

5. I slow roasted a pork loin last night with apples and onions. (Marinade of olive oil, 4 garlic cloves, rosemary, thyme, black peppercorns, salt) I let it roast at 325 for 3 hours. (I put a cup of white wine in after the first half hour, which was at 425.) The meat is so tender you can cut it with a fork. The apples melted, which they were supposed to do, and I ran them and some of the onions and liquid through my food mill, put it back on the stove and reduced it by a third, poured that over the top. Even the kids nommed it up.

My son said last night, with Bella-esque chagrin, "When mom remembers she likes cooking, it's bad for me. I have to wash all the dishes." Hahaha, YES YOU DO. Muah ah ah!

6. I'm gonna nap. I have a Sally Derg and a Hope cat that are curled up in some sunshine, maybe I can convince them to scootch over.

All in all, a great day.

OMG, must buy pork roast NOW. Also, did you think of trying it with sage instead of rosemary? Though the garlic might overpower that. NOM.

I had a chick who used to try to snake every boy I ever dated friend me on Facebook and she sent me this chirpy, "Tell me about what you've been doing for the last twenty years."

No. I don't think so.

Sage is always good! But the rosemary was lovely with the fresh thyme and garlic. (You know what's delicious? Deepr fried sage leaves. No, really. Shallow skillet of olive oil, sage leaves go in, pull them out after 30 seconds or so, salt and serve. SO. GOOD.)

UGH, I had that "friend," too. Fortunately she's not tried to find me there, yet.
Jan. 7th, 2009 07:47 pm (UTC)
OH WOW. And that's what you do with leftover sage leaves.

I am so writing my grocery list now now now. We have online ordering up here in the stix now, it's so awesome.

I like your response to him. *g*
Jan. 7th, 2009 07:42 pm (UTC)
Yeah. Dating in Utah is like dating in no other place on earth. I even have an entire chapter of my book dedicated to the topic, I have so many great "WTF?" stories.

Let us know how that goes!

*salutes* Will do!

Hahahaha! Nah, not worried. having worked at a server farm before, there's not much that needs watching over, and most of the office/HR/accounting stuff is automated, so it makes sense to trim the fat.

WHAT? He doesn't like pork, or just pork tenderloin?? Oooh, is that a micro-plane, hand held rasp tool? Those are FABULOUS. You'll be looking for any way to zest now, huh?

So I friended someone on FB that I went to high school. Was quite fond of him then but now he is a missionary type preacher. We've been having cordial yet heated discussions (not fights) on FB and texting about Iraq and conservatives vs liberals. It's been friendly but now his DAUGHTER - whom I have never met and will probably never meet has friended me. I guess she wants to keep tabs on her dad! I declined the invite.
Jan. 7th, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
Yeesh - that's awkward! There have been folks that have cropped up that I've straight away declined. Just because you knew someone way back when, doesn't mean you should know them now.
Jan. 7th, 2009 09:01 pm (UTC)
Today I found my high school's board on FB, but am not friending anyone who is on there. Heck, none of them even remember me, most likely, as I was the teensy pistil on the wallflower in high school...I remember them, but only because that was what I did, I watched people.

Ooh, fried sage sounds wonderful, and I happen to have some maturing in my pseudo-aero garden. yay. Thanks for the idea.
Jan. 7th, 2009 09:23 pm (UTC)
You betcha! It's super num. And a great way to use up extra leaves, too.
Jan. 7th, 2009 08:01 pm (UTC)
Glargh, your massage sounds so awesome -- 90 minutes! *swoons*
Jan. 7th, 2009 08:04 pm (UTC)
If I was Plasticman, I'd send my hands through the fwoomp tube and start on your shoulders!

Little Molly Mormon
Ohoh lol, those silly Mormon boys. Seen that scenario one too many times. Of course I've seen a lot of friends with stalkers around here too. Like three ladies off the top of my head. No wait, four. Ebil. Are stalkers common in other non-Mormon places, or is this a weird Utah thing? o_O

Raaaandom sidetrack, but hey pork! I love pork!
Jan. 7th, 2009 09:17 pm (UTC)
I think, unfortunately, that stalkers live everywhere.

Who doesn't love pork? I mean, aside from orthodox Jews, some Christian sects, Muslims, vegetarians... The pig is the magical meat creature that gives us all the best foods!
Jan. 7th, 2009 08:44 pm (UTC)
Facebook, connecting people you once met at a party, like fifteen years ago! I'm surprised they remember my last name. They must have rifled through my clutch.

Oh, that pork sounds delicious! Thank goodness the flu has fled. I have the same mountain of dishes after an afternoon cooking, but it's because I won't run my vintage Pyrex through the dishwasher *cue Donna Reed theme song* I need another set of kitchen cabinets for display purposes only!
Jan. 7th, 2009 09:18 pm (UTC)
Ahahahaha - so true.

I have dishes that don't go in the washer because I'll have to kill my son for ruining the finish. I need better organized kitchen cabinets. The current state of cabinetry in my house leaves much to be desired.
Jan. 7th, 2009 08:54 pm (UTC)
Massages, sushi and napping with pets - that sounds like a whole smorgosboard of wonderful.

I didn't know that you were on Facebook! Me too, but I don't really use it beyond once in a blue moon going on and prodding it with a stick.
Jan. 7th, 2009 09:19 pm (UTC)
And then there was an iced chai! Life is sweet, my friend.

I am, but I use it for friends that know me in real life and my agency, so I don't link to it here. *goes to hunt you down with a stick*
Jan. 7th, 2009 09:43 pm (UTC)
Consider me hunted! :D

Tell the boy that if he complains too much, you'll cook MORE. Help him build character 'n shit. *envies your food*

It took me a minute to register your icon, and then I mwahaha'd a LOT. Can't you just see Maria fondly scolding Rolf about condoms, as she makes him a matching curtain shorts-set, and then turns him and Liesl loose to go practice their "dancing" in the gazebo again. DANCING, WOMAN, I KNOW WHAT YOU'RE THINKING! *grins*

I have not tried deep fried sage leaves, but I have made a delicious quick sauce for pasta by sauteeing fresh sage leaves and garlic in a good quantity of olive oil.
I thought you would be interested to know that the RCMP have arrested two of the leaders of Bountiful, and charged them with practicing polygamy. Winston Blackmore and another guy have been under investigation for years, and finally the Attorney General has decided to take the matter to court.

I hadn't heard about Blackmore! That is HUGE. He's been running that place like a king for YEARS. Thank you very much for the info!

Massages are wonderful. I hate when they don't last long, but you take what you can get! (ie, afford.)

*crosses fingers*

Hopefully I'll be a certified massage therapist this time next year. If everything goes right.

Your son cracks me up, reminds me of me and my siblings. :D

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
