Finally! One article has been completed! I’ve found that once I get past the first article, things usually start rolling pretty quickly. And since I need to get all seven articles written and submitted for approval by the end of the week, “quickly” is the operative word. Tomorrow afternoon will pretty much be dedicated to getting these babies done. I may have to send Tim to MoKaBe’s without me… *sigh*

More teething related fun times today, as Auggie took two 45-minute naps today. That just does not cut it for my little guy. He did not want to go down AT ALL. So putting him down for his morning nap was an hour and a half long ordeal. (I know there are supposed to be a lot of hyphens in these adjectival phrases, but I’m just too darn tired to deal.)

You know what font I really like? Chicago. It reminds me of college. Sure, lots of people gave me a hard time, because it’s a big font and it fills up pages more quickly than, say, Times New Roman. But I really just like it because it’s easy to read. I think it’s maybe just a Mac font, anyway, because I haven’t used it in a long time. God, I’m such a geek.

So I know you’re wondering why I didn’t get any work done on those aforementioned articles this evening. Well, let me tell you! We went out to dinner is why. A spectacularly overpriced dinner, at that. You see, someone recently mentioned that TGIFridays was a particularly “child-friendly” restaurant, and I haven’t been to one since, like, 1995. So I figured, what the heck?


I was adventurous tonight. I got the gazpacho. It was not so good. Kinda like eating cold salsa. With cucumbers. Not so good.

Then I got some kinda shrimp entree that sounded pretty good. Sauteed in a spicy sauce, with corncakes to balance the spice. Well, the corncakes were WAY too sweet. The shrimp was OK.

So, all in all, I’d recommend sticking with the salads if you are ever forced to eat at TGIFridays. I think I’ll wait another seven years before I go back.
