+ I’ve been back at work since Tuesday and I am not at all feeling it. Thank goodness, it’s almost the weekend again.
+ Do you know how freakin’ soul-cracking it is to delete the “draft files” that I had set up to recap my trip to Germany? Ugh. Dumb. I should have known better not to do this. Oh well, I guess I could finally finish sharing the recaps from my road trip adventure last fall?! (Taking a mental note!)
+ On a different note: KLM was unexpectedly accommodating. When I called them last minute to cancel my flight, they gave me the full price back as a credit towards future travel (good for one year). I must say, I was positively surprised.
+ Last weekend, since I was here, I was able to participate in the #marchforourlives here in Sacramento. It was fantastic to see how many people came out to protest gun violence and advocate for more sensible gun legislation. I am glad I marched for such an important cause. Did you march, too?
+ So, here’s a lucky story: I am collecting rewards points with our favorite local pizza restaurant and we usually get a free pizza every once in a while. I am pretty sure we had just recently received our latest free pizza. Last weekend, we went to dinner at the restaurant (with my MIL, who is visiting) and when the bill came, they had given us a huge discount. The waiter said that I had apparently accumulated quite a large number of reward points (they took $60+ off our bill *gasp*) and I am positive that this couldn’t have been true. Of course, I am way too honest and alerted the waiter and asked him to kindly double-check. He did talk with the manager and came back to tell us ‘thank you for your loyalty’. Oh well, guess there was not much more I could do, but say thank you and keep my mouth shut.
+ I also collected my (belated) birthday treat: a deep dish delight (which is a huge chocolate chip cookie with ice-cream, whipped cream, and a cherry on top; pictured below). OMG, it was delicious, but it was such a huge portion and so ridiculously rich. Let’s just say: we weren’t able to finish it, even with three people.
+ We watched a movie on Netflix for the first time in a long time last weekend… I wanted something light and entertaining, so I went with “Bridget Jones’ Baby”. I really enjoyed it and it made me laugh, but I need someone to explain to me why Bridget and Mark Darcy broke up between the ending of the last movie and the beginning of this one. There was a huge gap in the story that I wasn’t able to fill in. (Also oh my, Patrick Dempsey. I never watched “Grey’s Anatomy”, so I had no idea that he aged so well.)
+ Okay, so I said in my recent Currently post that I was not going to ask for recommendations for shows to watch… but I changed my mind, and I am asking for recommendations now (preferably on Netflix), especially for laugh-out-loud comedies. Come at me! Please and thank you.
