1. I am officially in sprinkle withdrawal. I have the shakes.

2. A few beverages were consumed last week. Roughly… 12 cases of beer, 4 gallons of Malibu, some sweet tea vodka… not including what we had when we went out to eat. [Which by the way, was a fanfreakingtastic fudge cake martini.] I don’t even want to tell you how many people were on vacation because it’s not that many. Let’s just say it was less than 14.

3. Like I said, just a few beverages.

4. I completely forgot about these. And with the way things are going here, I should completely forget about them.

5. If you’re a long time reader, you know I’ve been a GIANT Sunday night HBO programming freak for over 10 years. I’m convinced that network can do no wrong. Now I’ve decided I’m going to make a big, fun dinner on Sunday nights before True Blood to fuel my obsession. Too bad I don’t have any friends.

6. Have you checked out RecipeBoy? He just might be the coolest 10-year old in the world. And he made a pizza with bacon. If I didn’t have nearly 20 years on him, I’d think he was my soulmate.

7. My brother made an awesome beach playlist, made even awesomer by songs from Neil Diamond and James Taylor and then a bunch of other inappropriate songs that embarrassed all of the adults. Nothing like my kitchen playlist.

8. Yes, awesomer is a word.

9. No, I’m not one of the adults. But I could play one on TV.

10. Filet for dinner tonight with green bean fries and sweet potato fries! What are you having?

    If Pittsburgh were closer to Harrisburg I would gladly join you for Sunday night True Blood feast night. I’d even take turns cooking…or maybe I’d just bring the booze, but either way, it would be good times had by all Jessicas. (PS- I hear theres going to be a lot more Eric this season. YES. PLEASE.)

    Great. I’m in my pjs and all I can think about is a strawberry vanilla twist cone covered in sprinkles. I’d just go the way I am but every time I go to my favorite ice cream place, I always see a student or coworker. They really don’t need to see the hot mess I am right now. ;)

    We had black bean burgers with corn on the cob and sweet potato fries for dinner!

I have a whole bunch of random stuff that I need to use. I’m trying to hold back calling my hubby to just bring home something for dinner. We’ll see how it all goes down.

    I had whitefish with asparagus and watermelon….

    and then because I wanted something fatty I dunked my spoon into the peanut butter jar.

    I was watching the next Food Network Star the other night, not sure why because I only like watching PaulaInaGiada, and one of the ladies made a pecan pie with a bacon and graham crust. I want one of those for dinner.

    Oh, for dinner we had smoked paprika rubbed pork tenderloin sandwiches with a garlic- sage aoli. Yum!

    You could have a virtual skype party? Except it would suck for the rest of us because we couldn’t enjoy any of your scrumptious food!

    I wish we lived close to each other! I would totally be your friend and have big dinners and watch True Blood with you. I am obsessed with that show and order HBO every summer just from the months of June to September so I can watch it. And watch it again in re-runs at least three times during the week. none of my friends around here watch it and that makes me sad.
