Thanks to google translate and my (admittedly faulty) memory of [livejournal.com profile] pico_the_great's mom's recipe, I now have sour cherry soup for the office soup-and-salad-off tuesday-after-next. I'll stash it in the freezer, pull it out to fridge-thaw next Sunday morning and offer sour cream as a mix-in. Hooooopefully my coworkers will enjoy? (I ended up adding too much sugar and balancing it with the juice of three whole very juicy lemons. Verdict: Nummy!)

I'm bringing the tuna-lentil salad I posted the other day, which has the added bonus of I like it lots and won't mind leftovers if my coworkers like it less than I do.

I'm also giving a rewatch of the complete series of The X-Files another go, because I want to have something that's fairly brainless and long to fall back on, mostly on worknights when I don't have a lot of brain. (The problem is that this show does not take place in the real world, but rather in a different one very similar to our own, that does have alien abductions and shadow-agency coverups. And you have to accept that as its central conceit to enjoy, at the very least, the mytharc. That's ... gotten harder for me as I've gotten older and grown to love science more than I did.)

This weekend has been highly relaxing -- Wednesday I didn't leave my house or interact with any humans; Thursday I went to Ikea with [livejournal.com profile] taraljc and came away with a a Kallax 2x2 unit and curtains; yesterday I went to World Market for two chairs that match the table I got last year, and visited Tara at her house.

And today was catsitting, some light grocery shopping, soup and (most importantly!) The Two Towers with [livejournal.com profile] q_sama. (First time I've seen it all the way through!

I've become that person, who orders in for lunch every day, and then complains about having no money. So I'mna do a thing:

Whenever I head over to grubhub, I'm going to not buy lunch. Instead, I'll walk to walgreens and buys soup/tv dinner/burger/nine sticks of string cheese/whatever, and transfer the difference between that and my usual $12 lunch into paypal (including fees/excluding tip-the-driver) or, when I have one, savings account.

It will be exciting to reclaim that money in the form of (1) kittens or (2) a new phone, when the time comes.


I also had to change brands on my meds, because the previous brand is no longer carried by target? and that means changing from tablet to caplet. So I am now taking 1x at 7:00, 1x at 3:00, and 1x before bed rather than 1x before bed and 2x at 7:00. It will be fun to see how that works out, too.
