Mish mash

April 27, 2010

Since it’s almost midnight and I can’t sleep, I thought I’d regale you with a few tidbits.

1. Favourite NOLA moments
• being carded at the casino. The girl was shocked at how excited we were to show our ID
• B waking up at 7:30 thinking it was 8:30. Hilarity ensued when I realized she had no idea it was an hour earlier then it was.
• the kind gentleman who advised us on the rules of drinking on the streets: don’t drink from a can, don’t pee in public and don’t puke on a cop. Sir, you’re too kind
• the cashier who exclaimed on seeing my Canadian twenty dollar bill: “oh that’s some of dat dem overseas money”
• getting picked up at cafe beignet

2. The fab dinner I had tonight
I mixed black beans and corn and heated them in a pan with some olive oil, cumin and garlic, then spread part of the mix on a whole wheat tortilla, sprinkled on some medium cheddar, topped it with another tortilla and popped it in the oven. Once the cheese melted, I ate it with some salsa, sour cream and guacamole. Delish. And there’s leftovers of the bean mix to use for lunch tomorrow, in some soft tortillas.

3. The movie I watched tonight before Glee
I picked up three movies that have been made out of Nora Roberts novels while in the states (5 for 20!!). I watched Midnight Bayou this evening, with the ever adorable Jerry O’Connell as the lead guy. Good renditin of the book!! Creaped me out in spots and I had to look around to make sure I was still alone.

4. The music I downloaded tonight
I downloaded the soundtrack to Away We Go, one of my face movies right now (and which I picked up as part of the 5 for 20). I’m listening to it right now and it’s brilliant! Also downloaded She and Him’s second album, which I haven’t listened to yet but I’m sure I’ll enjoy!

5. I love having my kitty home with me. At least someone is sleeping!!

6. Have a couple nibbles on POF. Will give details once I have them.
