very fat pancake day

Hoorah! Pancake Day was yesterday and indeed we ate pancakes even though I had to explain to Bill what all the madness was about. Good job that no one here seems to celebrate Pancake Day as that meant the supermarket was still stocked with lemons at 7pm. Bill couldn’t bring himself to have sugar and lemons so I relented and allowed him his maple syrup. We even ate at our table for once too. A very nice Pancake Day.

Didn’t go into BrightHouse until lunchtime again today, so spent the morning snoozing and reading a book. Also made Bill and I a tasty lentil moussaka for when he came home for lunch. Decided to top it with mashed sweet potato and was very impressed with the result.

Spent the afternoon at BrightHouse getting sad, fed up and frustrated. Didn’t go to Tang Soo Do as a result. It sucked on Friday anyway and at one point I almost walked out of class so really couldn’t be bothered yesterday at all. Pancakes and a walk around the block with Quince cheered me up though.

Oh, that, and the Beastie Boys video anthology DVD I ordered that arrived in the mail yesterday. Hoorah for Ebay. Sat down with Bill and watched the first disc last night.

Stayed in bed again this morning as I couldn’t face a whole day at the office being useless. Quince was very odd all morning, he would not settle (usually he just snuggles up in the bed with me) and kept pacing the house. He also keeps standing over the heating grate in the hallway floor and staring into it. Doesn’t bark or make a noise though, just stares. Weird. He was totally creeping me out, especially when I kept hearing strange noises; a banging in the spare room for example. That had me racing around the house checking the security, I think though it must have just been the bad weather or a branch falling onto the house. Anyway, strange dog.

Bill came home for lunch and we finished off the last of the moussaka, and now I’m back in the office pootling around. Spent most of the afternoon messing around trying to battle a Trojan on the PC. Dammit. I do hope I’ve thrashed it this time, delved into the registry again and I’m optomistic that I’ve cleansed my baby now. I had to eradicate several last week and since then the virus checker hadn’t picked anything up, until today when it went completely haywire again.

    I didn’t get to have pancakes… so next year I’m going to come to your house for them… ;o)

    Don’t worry about Quince, my dog Lucky used to do that kind of thing all the time, it’s important dog business that we can’t understand, like when they just sit and stare at the wall for ages. Probably looking at friendly ghosts who are offering them mouldy ghost dog biscuits. That’s what Lucky told me anyway.

    Yay!!! 😀

    “Don’t worry about Quince,…”

    Hmm, I still worry about that dog, but we think we got to the bottom of his behaviour last night. For tales of yowling, urine odour and candles in the dark see yet another rather obesely voluminous, terribly meandering and awfully prosaic installment of _k journal!
