If you see a whole thing - it seems that it's always beautiful. Planets, lives... But up close a world's all dirt and rocks. And day to day, life's a hard job, you get tired, you lose the pattern. - Ursula K. LeGuin

RBOC: Weekend Edition

  • Pupzilla has a new bone and The Brute has a new toy that squeaks.
  • I'm playing with the new Genius playlist feature on I-tunes. I'm a playlistin' fool but have been sticking with a lazy shuffle as of late. This feels like a smart shuffle option.
  • I just made roasted red peppers in a balsamic vinaigrette.
  • Last nite b and I went to a cabaret version of Dracula. They did a great job with it but I think the story is just too big for the venue.
  • During Friday nite's class my sensei decided it was "let's mess with Brigindo's head" day. He has me doing mirror-images of my forms and threatening that doing them backwards comes next. Its amazing how wrong it feels to do automatic movements on the opposite side. Its like writing with your left-hand when you're right-handed only with your whole body. Funny thing is, if you close your eyes it becomes easier.
  • I believe I drank myself off my diet this weekend.
  • I'm in class prepping hell--spending way to much time and getting nowhere.

I'm envious of your Pupzilla. We went to the shelter again this weekend, but still find no small, calm dog that would fit nicely into our home. Bummer.
I'm also in prepping/grading hell, but I've got most of the day on Monday, so I'm putting it off till then!

The mirror images sounds like an interesting exercise. I know I couldn't do it. I can barely operate in the realm I'm in now.

Roasted red peppers...yum!

My hubby bogarts the music - i just get the radio.
Those roasted red peppers sound awesome. I might have to make some of those this weekend.
