It can be total balls waking up this early but i got a great boarding pass at check in for my Southwest flight tomorrow and I get to start the day cuddling with a snuggling with a purring warm kitty. That makes it less balls indeed.

10/21/12 09:31 pm - Saturday October Fun

I managed to somehow have the entire weekend off work! Josh and I spent Saturday morning trying to track down something while running errands. Most of the tracking down was calling places from a parking lot so we weren't driving around willy nilly. Then we had breakfast at Einsteins and went and looked at a Dodge Dart. Mostly because I think they are cute and I was curious how big they were inside. I thought it had an okay amount of leg room for me. More than the Fiat we test drove awhile back. We're not buying a new car now, but it's fun to look.

We went home and watched "Five Year Engagement" with Emily Blunt who I think is one of my favorite actresses along with Emma Stone - they both make the best facial expressions. We had baked brie with a cranberry apple chutney for lunch (it was a Stonewall Kitchen Frozen Thing from Target) and it was tasty! We watched some funny stuff on YouTube like the new Table Top episode on Geek and Sundry and the Maria Bamford Show. And 100 Greatest Guinness World Records show which most of the records were just really bizarre.


Saturday night Josh wanted to take me to this italian marketplace and restaurant called Mandola's in the Triangle. He had been there for lunch with a coworker earlier in the month. Holy Moly it was GOOOOOOOOD. You walk in and order at a counter, pick a table, and they bring it to you. So it's a casual place but the food was really really delicious. We shared a tasty calamari and zucchini appetizer and some extremely yummy salad. Josh had lasagna and I had tortellini in cream sauce with peas and mushrooms. The tortellini had ham and chicken inside it and the lasagna had the best ricotta in it. We were so full but wanted to take home desert, so we picked out some cake, a small tart, and some cookies to take home.


I fell asleep watching Saturday Night Live and Josh tucked me into bed while I was talking about hamsters eating pudding.

Our baby hamsters are getting better! We discovered they really really love yogurt so they get plain yogurt to help build up their little systems with good probiotics. After the antibiotics they were on for such a long time, I think it's really helping! Plust they need to gain a few more grams each.



They were fighting over the one syringe of yogurt we were giving them so now we give them two so they don't fall over in excitement or try to eat the yogurt off each other's faces. :) They are getting dipped in this stinky stinky lime sulfur dip a few times a week, which we have to do out in the backyard that it smells so bad! I use a little eyeliner brush to get the dip behind their ears and all over them. And they get to dry in the sunshine so they have some time to feel some breezes and sniff the air and yell at birds flying by. Hamster yelling sounds like this "Meep beep squeak" :)



Trying to stay cool working outside....so far I haven't dehydrated yet. I freeze water and let it slowly melt as the work day goes along. I drove the train at the outlet mall tonight and we had people riding right up until the mall closed at 9pm.



Josh is now a Red Hat Certified Architect! He passed his test with flying colors. I'm so proud of him! He has a new framed certificate, he can use what he knows to move onwards and upwards at work :)



I went to his work today and joined him in lunch at the peached tortilla food truck. They stop at his office once a week with all sorts of fun tacos. I had a pork belly chinese bbq taco and the BEST Chicken Pad Thai taco. And this crazy delicious peach mint sauce that went with the sweet potato fries.



Just a few more days til my birthday, then a few more days til I go visit family in Chicago area, then Josh's birthday is close behind!

I'm a singing, joking, fact sharing, train engineer for Just Train Fun here in Austin and Round Rock. I just started working for the company about a week ago. I had my first shift on my own last Friday. Tomorrow I go work at the new location in the Round Rock Premium Outlets. I hope it goes well!
