Urban Girl Almanac: City Mouse

This has been a good week. The sun is out and we’re headed into a three day weekend. Here’s what I learned this week:

  • I ♥ Jane Austen.
  • Riding the tandem bike is much faster, dorkier, than walking to work.
  • Pretzel chips with hummus is the best snack.
  • I climbed my first ever 10d this week! Yay!
  • Ancient jewelry designs endure. I have a pair of etruscan design earrings that I bought when I was a horribly unstylish 13 year old and still wear.
  • I’ve recently discovered the joy of Freaks and Geeks.
  • La Redoute is running a great sale on French basics right now.
  • Keeping cans of various beans in the cabinet helps with last minute meals.
  • Spending a couple hours at the hair salon getting color and a blow out is a great treat.
  • I simply do not have the caffeine tolerance required for drinking a tall morning latte without turning into Tyrone Biggums.
  • Staying out until 3am on a school night isn’t so bad in moderation.
  • I hereby vow to never watch another scary movie filmed in “hand held camcorder” style.

Margaret, Rob and I are off on a road trip tomorrow morning! The car is packed with Cheeze-its and mix CDs for the 5 hour trek up Weaverville. Our adorable country mouse friends, Rich and Molly, live there and have a baby arriving in the spring. You may remember Weaverville from last year’s trip and the wedding before that. Should be another funny adventure!

    canned beans are my secret recipe too. A quick meal is just tortillas with RF (98% fat free) beans a little cheese and this is the secret ingredient Cholula Hot Sauce from Mexico.. it’s the best!

    Hooray! Somebody else has discovered the magic of Freaks and Geeks. I was one of the five people who watched it when it aired (Monday nights against Ally McBeal, if I remember correctly, and then moved to the kiss-of-death Saturday night), and I bought the box set the minute it was released. 🙂
