Eat your veggies.
Off to the Boyfriend's house for homemade dinner. He doesn't cook like this very often but does a pretty good job when he does. Among the items on the menu are Brussels Sprouts, since at Thanksgiving dinner there was a little mishap involving the over-eager application a particular ingredient of the recipe. Whoops.
Normally he's really good at making sure I can eat when we go out. He was a vegetarian for a while, so we've had few if any arguments between dating vegetarians and meat-eaters. It seems like common sense to me: Don't mess with what other people eat. Just as my reasons for not eating meat are personal, other people may take offense if I berate them for their food choices. If nothing else, I pause and consider that there are worse things they could eat.

It won't be the nicotine that kills you, Mr. Bond.

Screaming like a drag queen on fire.
(Sheesh, listen to me, trying to sound blasé about it all..."Jonno's just this guy, y'know?" I probably screamed louder than y'all when he linked to me, too.)

It was shirt.
I was working yesterday when my boss came in my office and snickered.
"You looked pregnant!" she said. I sat up uncomfortably in my chair. "No, I mean, the way you were slumped down like that, with your shirt pooching out..."
I poked my tummy. "I don't think it was just shirt."
"No, I know what being pregnant really looks like," she said, patting her small 22-weeks-along stomach. "That was shirt."
I do believe that she said it innocently. But now I can't stop the mean echo in my head, the one who means it every time he repeats it.

One Quiz to Rule Them All...
If I were a character in The Lord of the Rings, I would be Merry, Hobbit, heir of the Brandybucks and a friend of Frodo's. In the movie, I am played by Dominic Monaghan. Who would you be? Zovakware Lord of the Rings Character Test (Link via Brodie.)

The Spirit of Giving.
We celebrated Thanksgiving here in the apartment too. Hey, thanks for giving me your cold.

Shimmering Neon Lights.
As a fan of the restored Paramount Theatre, I'm actually excited to see the handsome Fox Theatre, closed since 1965, is finally being restored, and its sign relit. The boyfriend happened to walk past recently and saw that they were nearly done with a lot of exterior work. This Thursday at 5:30 (which makes it a little inconvenient for workers in SF to attend) they will have the relighting ceremony. (Links via the Boyfriend.)
I find myself cheering for Oakland a lot more lately, happy to see the city starting to appreciate its history, living or otherwise...acts of arson not withstanding.
