big plans

Some days I wake up and I am completely and totally motivated to get a whole bunch of shit done, and then I do it. Some days I wake up in the exact same mood and am totally derailed.

Guess which kind of day this was?

I got up. I went to the eye doctor. I spent all this money because my insurance blows.

Then, boom, it was 3 pm and I was eating lunch and I’d accomplished NOTHING except spending the money and talking the optometrist out of dialating my eyes.

I did have a delicious salmon burger for lunch though.

Recipe: Go to Costco. Buy the frozen salmon burgers. Come home. Take your little Foreman grill outside in an effort to avoid making the house smell like salmon and grill the burger. Toast some bread, spread on some green chili mustard you bought in Santa Fe, and pop the burger on top.

Then, right when I was about to get into the nitty gritty of GETTINGSTUFFDONE, Crocket DRAGGED me to a pub.

Sometimes it’s like he doesn’t love me at all.

I let him buy me a Guinness to make up for it.

We were with a couple of friends, and we were all feeling peckish, so Crockett ordered the whole left side of the appetizer menu.

I’m not kidding. That’s what he did, he went up to the bar and ordered the left side of the appetizer menu.

We had green chili (Irish relevance: the green), pasties with cabbage and beef, and Irish nachos. Irish nachos are nachos with potatoes instead of chips. Apparently.

I wasn’t as impressed with the food as you might expect, what with it being so authentically Irish and all.

I had another Guinness to console myself.

Then we went and played video games with Crockett’s brother and sister in law.

And by ‘played video games’ I mean they played and I dorked around on my phone. Video games and I don’t really get along.
