I went to lunch with CJ today, it was nice to have a decent conversation with an off-campus friend for once. 'Twas lovely.
I made dinner tonight since my mom went to something in Pittsburgh. Next time I try to sautee stuff, perhaps I should heat the oil before dumping in the veggies so they don't absorb the oil and get all icky. Ah well. I don't like squash and eggplant anyway. At least the meatball sauce, pasta, and cranberry bread turned out ok (didn't try the bread yet, but it looks and smells good).
My dad works at CMU, and he comes in contact with lots of people with interesting (usually ethnic) names. He once had to contact someone whose name was something like Ishot Mawad. I find that hilarious. My sis didn't get it, so explaining it to her was interesting.
"I'm working on failing my test! I mean... close enough."
"Katie, I need to take pictures of you with or without the clothes on."
