A happy Shrove Tuesday to you all! The only day where you don’t have to think about what you’re going to cook for supper. For anyone interested, here’s a good summary of the history behind Shrove Tuesday from the BBC.

Breakfast foods, including pancakes, are John’s favorite things to cook. I wish you were here to have pancakes with me tonight. If anyone asks what I’m giving up for Lent this year, I think it should be fairly obvious.

I haven’t been up to very much. Went to see Grease on Thursday night with Kelly and Dawn. Hadn’t seen Kelly since Christmas and hadn’t seen Dawn in years, so it was fun to have an evening out with them. I didn’t go anywhere after the show as I wanted to get home and check on John, who seems to be having a tough time shaking the flu. He wasn’t online so I called him and we talked for about an hour. It was nice not to have to type and I got to take advantage of the 5¢/min long distance I had signed up for.

I spent my weekend at home, not doing a whole lot. Been watching a lot of my Star Trek Original Series Season 1 DVD. I am down to the last disk and now must restrain myself from going out and buying the next season until it comes on sale. Should have bought it around xmas, as they were on sale then, but you snooze you lose, so I didn’t get them. Did a lot of reading this weekend, finished a couple of books and am halfway through a third. Went to church, bought vitamins… that’s pretty much it.

I keep smelling pancakes in my office… must be the same people upstairs who like to gaslight me with the lovely scent of popcorn.

I do have a few more things going on this week, so it will be nice to get out and be a little more social. Tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, so a trip to church is in order. Thursday night I am headed to Fredericton to see Collective Soul – really looking forward to that. Saturday night is Girls’ Night, a good time for sure.

Been playing around a bit with putting the XM in my car. I have a car antenna that came with it, but it needs to go on the outside of the car, not near glass. That rules out the roof, which is one of the suggested locations, so I’ll have to try for the trunk, hopefully without getting in the way too much. I’m going to have a trip to Moncton coming up in the next week or two and I want to bring the XM with me and test it out on the road.

It smells like I’m cooking pancakes in here… the gaslighting continues.

Liz, I love the sound of your weekends! To sit and read for a day would be so cool right about now. I forgot it was pancake tuesday as well. Now my gut is rumblng for some! Might have to skip out early and go home to whip some up!

Five cents a minute sounds like a sweet deal.
