apollymi: Godzilla - Text reads "Warning: Cranky! Proceed with caution" (Godzilla**Godzilla: Warning: cranky - U)
I marathoned my way through the better episodes of Season Four of Leverage today. [personal profile] katsuko more or less watched over my shoulder. Sort of. Kind of. Okay, mostly she just played on her phone while I watched Leverage. I'll count it, I guess. Separating her from the damn thing is hard enough without trying to fight it for the little stuff. I'm not sure if it's Tumblr or AO3 that's currently eating her soul right now, but she is tethered to the damn thing.

In other news, we got some of that promised snow, but not nearly as much as was promised. They were calling for three to four inches, and it barely dusted the ground. But we did get a gracious plenty of ice. My car was completely iced over, in fact, to the point that we couldn't get the door opened in time for [personal profile] katsuko to go to work, so she ended up calling out.

I even ended up cooking lunch and dinner again today. For lunch, I made noodles with vegetables and a red curry peanut sauce. Very nice. Filling with just a hint of spice. The sauce contained peanut butter, minced ginger, soy sauce, agave nectar, lime juice, water, a hint of sesame oil, and red curry paste. The vegetables I had on hand were carrots and sweet peas; I found broccoli afterwards, or I would have put it in as well. Dinner was a lentil and barley soup. It was good, but I ended up having to go pretty far off recipe to get some damn flavor in it. It was lentils, barley, vegetable bouillon, thyme, sage, poultry seasoning, garlic, celery salt, soy sauce, ham goya (which contains no ham, point of fact), and a shit ton of hickory liquid smoke. I even got to get out the immersion blender and give it a whirl.

I guess, all in all, it wasn't a bad day. I guess. I didn't get a lot of writing done, not as much as I wanted, but it wasn't a bad day. I'm just still on the rag and really, really fucking cranky. I don't want to have to go back to Mirko tomorrow and deal with Rod. Not if I'm still this cranky. Everything is pissing me the fuck off. Scrivener is pissing me the fuck off. The music outside is pissing me the fuck off. Just... everything.

Proceed with caution.
