I think I was okay when I woke up.
Then I talked to a few people.

Now I'm not really okay anymore.

Doesn't matter.
I've got chore-ish lil things to take care of and then I guess my *mom* of all people wants to go see Insomnia, which is cool because I actually wanted to see it too. Just the idea of Robin Williams as a murderer is interesting enough to get my attention.
But I fear him in serious roles.
He either ends up depressing the fuck out of you (What Dreams May Come) or coming off like he's just barely containing himself from running around the room going "WHOOP WHOOP!" (Awakenings) ...
Or at least.. that's the feeling I get. Like he's just barely supressing wild laughter all the time.

Martha Stewart has some congressman from Louisiana on her show making gumbo.
he's very ... throwing-in-as-much-patois-as-possible...
Like Justin Wilson without the drunken squirrel stories.

I get the feeling that I'm being consistently nice to people who will never ever ever notice.
Not because they're bad people.
But just because... well ... life happened to them and they don't have the patience for thank you cards right now.

It won't stop me from being nice. I'm just whining.

I'm going to start CHARGING for the cookies.
I made a couple dozen chocolate chip for Dan this morning after our foray toward the sunset.
... I didn't talk about that did I?
I only got a couple hours of sleep last night becuase I was busy with a last minute thingy I was planning and because I got up at 5:30 so I could be waiting at the end of the driveway by 5:40 so I could be whisked off to the beach so I could see the sunrise. I promised Dan I would go with him. So there I was.

good stuff.. but I'm exhausted and not feeling horribly fucking generous at the moment.

I didn't take any pictures... but I will DESCRIBE dinner to you.
steamed fresh green beans.
hot German potato salad (warm red potatoes, chopped celery and scallion, poppy seed dressing)
Grilled Marinated Portabello mushrooms (marinated in olive oil, basalmic vinegar, ground pepper, kosher salt)
Grilled Tuna Steaks ( marinated in teriyaki sauce and pineapple juice)

Good stuff.
I'm all proud of myself for actually planning and cooking a whole, balanced meal. I'm not usually very good at that. I end up with just a side dish all too often
