Michael Pollan is my god now.

Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.

Pool hard.

Heh, my subject lines aren't getting any better. C'est la vie.

We have gotten into a more or less regular after work pool night with people from #1 husband's job. Get together, shoot some average pool (or below average, in my case), then hit a nearby restaurant for dinner. (So this has also become our eat out once a week night.)

I'm not better at pool, but I am really enjoying the social time. There's a lot of talking, joking, beer, and usually good food. Getting out of the house and interacting with other adults who have generally interesting things to say is SO GREAT!

Last night was a small group so we finally went to the local tapas place for dinner. (I guess you could read that as "I finally strong-armed them into going to the local tapas place for dinner.") It was meh, but not bad. The bottle of wine was enjoyable. But really, the company was the best part.

So thanks for putting up with my rancid pool playing skills, at least I can make up for it with witty banter, informed opinions, and complete sentences.

School hard.

I think that is a complete sentence.

At any rate, classes are much harder this semester, but I'm -kind of- looking forward to the challenge. I want to get straight A's, but I'm also looking at adding another class to my full schedule. A math class, no less. What am I smoking?

The rest of this cold winter has been spent at home, on the couch with my lad. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE spending time on the couch with my lad... But my ass is spreading again, and that is not so good.

We're sailing tv free (since the last one blew up), so I'm not rotting my brain that way, but is time spent in front of the laptops any different or better? I'm probably watching MORE tv shows now - thanks for nothing!

It's time to study some more. It's time to learn some more. It's time to be smarter and use my brains on a regular basis - the parts that aren't rotten.
