    Finally got the closure I needed from my recent breakup, so now I am truly "on to the next one" as the prophet Jay Z would say. Mothers, lock up your chubby-chasing daughters.

    Scones.

    More specifically, scones that my wife made.

    And to explain anymore, it will have to be story time.....

    When I was in pre-school, a friend of my mom's took care of me 2 afternoons a week (my mom was working part time). This lady sometimes made scones. I really liked her scones. Given the discretion level of four to five year olds, and that I was probably direct even for that demographic, this was not a secret :doh: (as in, I suspect that I often showed up and immediately asked if she'd made scones). There were pretty much my favourite food in the world (well, possibly after my mom's chocolate chip cookies, but those were more accessible). And yes, even then I was rather fond of baked goods....

    Jump forward about twenty years. For our wedding, my wife and I asked guests for a favourite recipe, and we collected them and gave out the resulting recipe books as wedding favours (yes, food has always been an important part of our relationship....). We were given THE scone recipe! (This may or may not have been part of my goal in the whole process). Shortly afterwards, I made scones, following the recipe. And they were 'meh.' I figured a combination of something just don't show up in recipes, and the gold glow of childhood memories accounted for the gap. I didn't try making them again, and mostly just forgot about them.

    Last week, for some reason, my wife got a hankering for scones. She is not normally all that big on baked goods, but these things can happen. So this weekend she decided to make some, and decided to take a crack at THE recipe.

    And it worked. The power of a good cook, I guess? Or maybe you just need the love worked into the dough? Whatever it is......*happy sigh* they taste and feel "right."

    So today, I'm happy about scones.

    I was allowed to sleep until the alarm went off. The cat didn't wake me up an hour before it went off, not like he usually does, so he can have my side of the bed.

    He is soooo cute :) Very happy for you :)

    A friend of mine's elderly parents have had some major health problems in the last 4-5 days (blood clot in leg & falling off a stool/breaking hip) - both are on the mend and doing good under the circumstances - that makes me happy - and also just having a pleasant day today with family :)

    I'm happy about feeling test-ready -- i.e. being past that period of wondering whether I'll have enough time to revise things again and again and again and.....

    This is what studying is all about when you suck at realistic time management.

    *stomach knot dissolves and breathing normalises* Ahhhhh :happy:

    I asked a girl out today and she said yes!! I have only ever asked out a hand full of girls and I always get rejected, today I got a yes....but I didn't clarify that it was a date....does that still make it a date? I hope she knows it's a date, maybe she doesn't though, fuck!!!

    First, relax and breathe. :p

    I think you're OK. No one ever asked me out and then said, "You know this is a date, right?"

    Just try to have fun and good luck! :)

    As MsBrightside said--relax!

    I'm pretty sure that as long as you don't change your facebook status just yet, it is all good ;-)

    1) It is Monday, and it really has not sucked :)

    2) First real snow of the year! It has melted a lot, but still it is looking brighter outside already.

    3) I got to make a Lucky Luke reference today :happy:

    I'll call that a good day :p

    Update for you guys. We went for Sushi (my favorite) and I decided to try a place I never been to before. I am normally a very big joker but was kind of nervous because my humor could be very dirty and naughty, which I think is too much on a first (maybe a) date. So tried to refrain from being too childish about things. Then the menu came and I couldn't help it.

    The names of the stuff you could order were just setting me up for disaster. I ended up ordering a "That's what she said" roll and
    another one that had a (18+) symbol next to it (forgot name). She seemed fine with it all and even giggled after giving the menu a weird look, I did tell her I had never been there before so at least I didn't purposefully bring her to a pervy eatery. Then all hell broke lose....These rolls came to the table. I'd like to go into more details but am pressed for time, let's just say the inappropriate puns and remarks began to flow uncontrollably after that. They tasted good though. I immediately grabbed my chop sticks after taking the pictures and dove into a roll saying "just the tip" and to my amazing surprise she followed up with "that's what she said". I don't know if it was heart burn from the Wasabi or if she had my heart burning with desire for her after that....maybe both!

    thats what she said.jpg
