37.2 – I love to eat

Tonight we went out for my birthday dinner since I was on-call for work last night.  Good thing too, because just as we were sitting down to eat last night, the BlackBerry rang and I had to be on the phone for about an hour.  Kinda sucked, but it’s only once a month.  I like to think of it as getting paid to sleep.

We went over to BJ’s Brewhouse.   Third time there.  The menu is so huge that it’ll take a few more visits to taste all of the things that I want to eat in there.  The must have, however, is the Ahi Poke appetizers.  I.  Love.  This.  Dish.  I love it so much that I followed it today (name that song to go to the bonus round).  But really, I love it so much that I ordered it to go so I could still taste a bunch of other things.  It’s that good.  So far, I haven’t had anything there that I didn’t love.

Tonight, dishes visiting our table included Avocado Egg Rolls, Tuscan Limone Chicken, Chicken Fried Steak, California Burger, and the Mini Pizooki Trio.  Every last bit of it was delicious.

The best part about eating dinner at 6:30 is not feeling bad about having a snack at about 9:30.  And a healthy snack at that!  Pardon me whilst I om.  Nom nom.

I’m still taking suggestions for a name for the new laptop when she arrives.  Maybe I’ll get a pole dancing sticker and put it on her and call her Lexi.  I stun myself with these nuggets of genius.

You know, I’d love to keep talking to you, but I have tuna to eat.

Welcome to December, we got fun and games

Once again, I’ll be trying to post more often.  We all know how that goes, however.  I start, I’m good for a few days, then I drop off.  I can’t help it that there’s not always something interesting happening in my life.  I don’t want to bore you, my two or three readers, you know.

If you read the last post, well, work is going well.  I’m learning a lot whilst breaking things (although not my fault).  Sometimes I feel like a complete moron, but that’s probably just an issue I have.

It’s quite difficult to believe that 2010 is winding down already.  It’s already nearly time to make those New Year’s resolutions that we all break on, oh, January 2.  Have you already decided on what you aren’t going to do in 2011?  😉

*total aside* Mariska Hargitay is a beautiful woman.  Yeah, I’m watching SVU.

On the subject of 2011, in January, I get the sweet opportunity to do a little Zumba during halftime of the Nuggets game in January.  Now, if I could just get around to learning that dance, lol,  If you’re in Colorado or New Orleans (I’m pretty sure they’re playing NO), maybe you’ll get to catch that halftime gig on TV.

I hope you’ll bear with me here.  I know this is kinda ramble-y, but I’m trying to get back to my former blogging form.  If you’d like to read from when I was more coherent, there are plenty of entries to check out right after I import them, lol.

Regardless, I thank you, three readers, for stopping by.  It’ll get better so tell your friends.  Until later….

It’s another new home!

I’ve had a lot of blog homes over the last couple of years, but I think I’ll tool around with this one and actually keep it. 🙂

I was going to wait until the new year to start writing again, but procrastinating has always been my downfall so I thought I should start kicking its ass immediately.  So while this is just a short love note, there is much more to look forward to, my friends. Much, much more.

Until then…

Today, it is official

What better way to start your weekend than to get married, right? Well, that’s what I’m doing. Even though our “big” ceremony isn’t for another week, we’re taking care of the legalities today. While we could’ve done the whole legal wedding in Mexico, they really make it a pain in the butt, so we’re getting hitched right here in the States.

It’s a bittersweet kinda day. While my mom and brother will be at the big ceremony, I’m still missing so many people. Folks I always imagined would be there when I got married. I realize that people don’t live forever, but that fact isn’t able to change the little bit of sadness that is trying to creep in.

Reality says that my grandparents likely wouldn’t make it to my wedding, particularly seeing as how I’ve waited damn near forever to actually get married. I really thought that my dad would be there to give me away though. Cancer stole that dream from me. I can only take solace in the thought that they’ll all be watching from above and they’ll all be happy for me. Maybe they’ll even throw their own little party. 🙂

I don’t suppose that I can reiterate enough how much I am ready to leave Miami. Of all the places that I have lived (and I’ll count lived as I stayed there for more than 2 months), Miami is my least favorite. It isn’t all that they show you on TV. Actually, it’s almost none of that. Sure, there are people living that life you see on TV, but that’s not for you and me, unfortunately. I could go on and on about why I’m ready to go, but I won’t. Suffice it to say, it’s been a long five years.

On a happier, or at least funnier note, I have to try to shop for makeup soon. I also need someone to teach me how to put it on properly. Damn you, Van Meter Road! Growing up with mostly boys I didn’t learn this kinda stuff. But hell, I can change oil, tires, and brakes so I guess I’m really a leg up.

There is still much to be done and I keep procrastinating. I guess I really should get moving. Have a wonderful weekend all!


The soon to be Mrs. Burkes-Garcia
