I made simple syrup (1:1 ratio) and cold brewed coffee (the coffee isn’t finished, but I started it). I now have this burning desire to order a case of mason jars. *rolls eyes at herself* Like I won’t have more empty jars from spagetti sauce and pickles and such anyways.

Need to work on my research paper. And the new project. I’ll call it the Bear App. And I really should get my yarn to the next step in the process, which is to tie it up and pull it off the niddy noddy. Wow it’s been a long time since I talked about that kind of stuff on the blog. *sighs happily*

Edited for Linda. She wanted me to link to some cold brewed coffee.

Sound of Settling

Bear and I just started a job for my aunt. One of the few members of my family that Bear genuinely likes. Some days I wonder what’s wrong with us. 1) Because I have the ability to piss Bear off so fast. Or frustrate him. Or annoy him. I do not think the way he actually expects me to think. I do not work the way he expects me to work. He thinks I’m brilliant (my husband confounds me.) and this means he thinks that I think the way he does. I think he’s brilliant, but there’s no way in H-E-L-L that we think alike. We don’t process information the same, we don’t think the same, we don’t have similar memory abilities. 2) Working for my aunt?? Well, she’s going to be polite because it’s Bear. That’s the only saving grace. It’s going to be a pretty massive project. With the promise of a good payoff. But we both work full time.

Other than that, it’s been an awesome weekend. I lie. Even with that, it’s been an awesome weekend. Bear and I spent some time outside on Friday. I took the wheel outside while he walked around and we talked. Then we had dinner and a generally nice evening. Saturday, kept spinning. Watched movies. Hung with Bear. Avoided computer like it would give me the plague. And not the Black one. It was a pretty great day. Today I’ve worked on my aunt’s mockups (wireframes with use cases as per Bear) and spun some more and watched some BAD movies. Picked up AJ from the airport and took her home. Got into a fight with Bear on the phone about nagging and whether I’m a natural nagger or if we could fix things so that I didn’t nag. We dropped it. *sighs*

Lin, if you see this, I saw 7 lbs (the movie?). Did you tell me to see it? I gotta say dude, I was kinda pissed. I did not expect that at all and I hadn’t wanted to see another sad movie. I was so pissed. Ugh. Strangely though, not at the actual plot. I found it pretty… not believable, but I saw why it happened the way it did and am ok with it. It was more that I didn’t start it expecting it to be the movie it was and I’ve been grouchy since.
