Seven years ago today, Louis and I had our first date. It almost didn’t happen. This was back when we were both social butterflies, and we were having trouble lining up a date and time to meet. In retrospect, we both must have been keen, as we ultimately agreed to meet late on a Friday night, after we had each been out to other parties. So it was, that I found myself sitting at the counter of The City Wine Shop, with two bowls of spaghetti and meatballs. I had ordered for both of us, as the kitchen was about to close, and Louis was still on his way. As I sat by myself, the waiter who had been slicing bread behind the counter, grabbed some foil to wrap up the dishes and keep them warm.
In my more fanciful moments, I retrospectively interpret the waiter’s act as the universe telling me that it would be worth waiting for what was to come. And the waiter/universe was not wrong. Seven years later, and after all the ups and downs, I have zero regrets. Those meatballs had been worth waiting for. 😉 Continue reading Mushroom Pasta, and Apple Salad
Late last year, I may have experienced Facebook Rage while at the supermarket. Technically, my rage actually started at the train station, as I scrolled through my Facebook feed while waiting for the train, and came across the below post by a group I was following:
I read this post. I fumed. I posted a rant to my personal Facebook page. I fumed. I got off the train. I fumed. I walked to the supermarket. I fumed. And by the time I made it into the fresh produce section, a compulsion overtook me, I whipped out my phone, opened up Facebook while standing next to the zucchinis, and wrote the following response in the comments of the offending post: Continue reading T1D and the Zombie Apocalypse (or Let’s eat Espinacs a La Catalana)
In terms of IT/technology related skills, I reached my peak at the age of about six or seven years old. It was at this point that I was able to quite independently use the record player to put on some “Grease Lightnin” or “Blame it on the Boogie”. I was also the only one in our household who knew how to use the timer on the VCR, which meant the only things we ever recorded were movies like “Zanadu”, or shows where the main characters all wore animal suits.

It has been a horrendously long time since the last post, and I have all sorts of excuses. The latest one, is a three week holiday which my mum took Louis and I on (thank you mum!). Not just any holiday, this was my mum’s first foray into Europe. It was an incredibly hectic non-stop sightseeing frenzy which barely left time for shopping *shock, horror*. I’m still in denial that I only purchased two handbags. Ah well, next time.
