One of the commodes in the women's restroom is borked beyond repair and in need of a plumber.  I'm betting someone flushed a tampon.  That leaves the one that I have to MacGyver with a paperclip every fifth flush or so.  *sigh*

We also ran out of Diet Coke AND Diet Dr. Pepper.  And wheat wraps for the chicken ceasar wrap.

Yeah,  today was kind of ugly.  Thank the gods I'm off tomorrow.  The only thing on my schedule is a grocery run to get the rest of the ingredients for the gumbo the spousebeast is taking to Fantasy Football draft weekend.  And figure out what I want to eat while he's gone, because I REFUSE to exist on cold cereal and food from work for three and a half days.

At least that's what I'm telling myself now.  If this week continues the way it has started, I may be eating Spaghettios straight out of the can for breakfast.

I'm also going to be computer-less while he's gone.  I did it last year and actually rather liked it.  I think a social media break (okay, let's be honest.  A Facebook break.  LJ is actually rather calm for me.  I have great friends.  <3  ) will be good.  I mean to do it regularly, but the computer has to actually leave the house for me to stick to it.

I was going to take myself out to dinner Friday night because payday.  Big Boss asked if I REALLY wanted to have dinner...on Franklin St...on a Friday night....during rush week.

Smart boss is smart.  So I think I'll take that money and buy myself a book instead.  There are a number that I've been wanting to read (because, ya know, there are SO FEW books around here).  Maybe I'll make that recipe for black bean burgers I've been wanting to try, and cuddle up with a glass of wine and a new read.

I have a recipe for black bean burgers! It has a special ketchup that you make to go with it. I'll share it if you're interested!

Enjoy your day off and time off. It sounds like your day was crazy yesterday. Labir Day was crazy in the early years at zee hut.

Coincidently we need a plumber for a similar reason.
Fingers pointing at a visitor.

I'd forgotten that I'd ordered a book I used to love when I ordered the candy penises from amazon. It arrived today. Brilliant timing!

Although I still *really* want Alison Argrim's 'Tales of a Prairie Bitch' (she was Nellie on Little Hourse on the Prairie).

Hey, just a random thought to treat yourself..I feel like I've acquired a secret and I must share, ha! Kindle are around $50 now and libraries have "digital subscriptions" & if you have a library card you can go there and register your kindle and boom! Bestsellers at your finger tips. It's cut me down on book buying.

I totally feel your work week, honey. I'm grateful that catering is a bit lighter this week. It's still $1000 days, but that so beats $8000 days. I hope things lighten up for you, too... so you can avoid eating spaghettios out of the can in a car. 😉
