Why yes, my day did end with Edward.

Ok, in truth, I’m a Jacob/closet-Charlie fan, but Edward was the one who was there, so Edward was the one who got into the pic with me.

It started much less sparkly, with monochromatic coffee and oatmeal. The oatmeal is that color because of pumpkin butter, not because of any magical oatmeal weirdness.

What followed was a lot of moving, which I did not photograph because I was being a cranky bitch… then lunch.

Crockett and I paid off the movers (hiring movers is something grownups do. I decided that when I was considering moving my furniture myself.) and went to lunch with one of his coworkers at The Cactus Wheel here in town.

We were starving, so we started with fried plantains.

Hullo babies.

Included was fried yucca. I’ve never had fried yucca before. To my knowledge, I’ve never had yucca before. It was thick and sweet and like a cross between a potato and a marshmallow.

Also included? Dos Equis.

With lime.

They specialize in two things. Tequila…

And hot sauce. The hot sauce wall is nifty because it’s open to client contribution – if you buy a bottle of hot sauce and bring it to them unopened with the¬†receipt¬†they reimburse you and put it on the shelves. Every bottle is then available for any customer to use.

There’s lots of fancy on this wall. Sadly, I’ve not taken a lot of advantage of the fancy. I always admire from afar, but have yet to participate.

They also have tequila specials, for those of us who are temporarily off beer due to heartburn issues (cough-Crockett-cough). This month’s silver special, 901, is apparently Justin Timberlake’s tequila.

I don’t know why Justin Timberlake has his own tequila either, y’all, so don’t ask.

They have some nifty decor too.

Then it was back to unpacking. Yes, there is still a Christmas tree in Crockett’s living room. Yes, I am going to refer to it as Crockett’s living room as long as there is a tree in it.

There are new tables and new plants, but it’s basically the same house. Puppies, check. Couch, check.

Oh, are we back to this again? Despite the move today, I had a very important Eclipse party to attend tonight – so attend I did. There was popcorn and there were cookies and there were these chocolate and cocoa coated dried strawberries that dear god…. but we were working with candlelight, so y’all don’t get to see anything but me and Edward.

I still prefer Jacob. (Ok fine, I prefer Charlie. But it’s not because I’m old, it’s because Charlie is the best. Even if he is the obligatory dad in the story.)

Do you have a Twilight team?
