So, Atlanta is in the process of shutting down for the bad weather. Not Mirko Pasta, of course. The Governor and the city mayor said for everyone to be off the streets by 4 p.m., but nope, Mirko Pasta decided to stay open. However, Carlos was actually quite kind about it, at least to me. He said that if IKEA ended up closing today (and therefore [personal profile] katsuko didn't have to work, then I could take the night off Mirko. IKEA closed. We got a night off. Yay.

We spent most of the day rewatching Leverage. I'm calling it research for the Leverage/The Magnificent Seven story... series... thing. But that does mean that I need to be working on my writing and not just watching episodes. We're most of the way through Season Three, though, with only one episode left to go.

I am also, however, drowning myself in Pepto Bismol and ginger tea right now. I'm on the rag, so I'm all out of whack, body-wise, as always. Those two things are my besties right now, though.

I did manage to cook two meals today, though. One was a broccoli and quinoa casserole that turned out really, really good. The other was a very cheating, lazy-ass version of red beans and rice, and [personal profile] katsuko heated up some biscuits to go with it. The casserole turned out good, and I will be making it again once I have more quinoa. The red beans and rice dish is probably going to be retired, at least until I have better ingredients. Literally, I used six ingredients to make this crap: brown rice, kidney beans, salsa, liquid smoke, butter, and agave when it got too spicy/strong with the other ingredients. It was in no way authentic, and I can't say it was all that good either... but it was filling and [personal profile] katsuko might have liked it... but then, I think sometimes she'll eat anything produced in our kitchen. She's willing eaten some of my biggest kitchen screw-ups yet.

And yeah, that's about all I've got to say for myself for today. My running word count towards #365k/365Day is now 6,900 words, so I guess even if I don't manage to hit 1,000 words today I'm all right overall. And given that Roo is now helping me by standing between me and the keyboard, I think my writing time for the day might be over. Later.
