SPRING FORWARD? — Oh, the cabin fever! Larry’s so desperate for summer he is grilling out in 17°F, in short sleeves. I’ve been so desperate for physical activity of any sort that I have been hitting the gym everyday, and some days it hits back. I’m trying to get ready for my next physical fitness test, on 27 March. Larry is obviously practicing for bachelorism when I deploy over the summer. And with the Daylight Savings Time, there is more time to grill before it gets dark. It’s a winning situation for all involved, really.
Additionally, Minot received a foot of snow last weekend, and we actually had a fabled “Snow Day” on Monday. Living in Florida was awesome because we’d get “Hurricane Days” regularly where you didn’t have to go to work (unless it was Blockbuster — I drove there during a hurricane once to visit a friend. I wondered why the roads were so empty…). I never realized how much “planning” (or non-plans) go into a day off. So I sat on my duff and played Skyrim. All day. Except when I made black bean and tofu burritos for dinner. Who says vegetarian/gluten-free has to be unappetizing? Not me. I sauteed green and red peppers, red onion, black beans, almond cheese, and honey Greek yogurt.
I think Mila’s makeup might have looked less weird if they would have shaded her eyebrows differently. I think that would have made a huge difference — it looks super phony. She looked like The Mask.
