beware the stealth grapefruit

The candy mix that I currently have in the container on my desk includes a variety of "fruit gem", basically fruit-flavored gummy rounds coated in sugar. I am unreasonably addicted to these things. This morning, though, I tried one of the pale white-y colored ones, expecting (by Lifesavers logic) that it would be pineapple. I'm fairly certain, however, that it was grapefruit. Wholly unexpected. It didn't taste bad once I realized what it was, but when you're expecting pineapple, that sort of thing can really bring you up short.

I had a lovely weekend. Friday, after a whole day of miserable rain-ness, I left work thinking that all I wanted was to sit at home and eat pizza and watch DVDs. A few phonecalls followed, and the resulting evening was just right. psychephage, wowbagger, mightcould, Papa John, some beer, The Incredibles and Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events.

Saturday, the sister and I met Jacki for lunch. We saw her beautiful house, some darling kitty cats and a basset hound, ate some fantastic food (Hummus platter appetizer YUM. Spanikopita SUPERYUM.), did a little bit of interesting shop-browsing, had a lovely time. We lazed around my place for the afternoon, and ventured up to Fells Point with psychephage in the evening, to see wordmaster73 perform as a part of Even So at the Brass Monkey. We arrived early enough to wander for a bit and find some dinner, which ended up- after rather too much indecision- being some fantastic steak (and chicken, for some) fajitas made to order at a table set up on the sidewalk. Good stuff. The show, also, was good stuff. Fun indeed.

Yesterday was low-key. I cleaned in the morning, walked the Trolley Trail after lunch. Spent a couple hours at the parents' house, hanging with my Daddy, since Mom is out of town. We ate chips and salsa and watched golf. Quality time. Later I did some shopping, desperately overdue, then spent the rest of the evening at home. Finished up my CDs for Erica's project. Watched the entirety of the Tonys. I really want to see The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Also Spamalot, although that's a given. A quiet day, but a very good one.

Today is, I understand, unbearably hot. Awesome.

No, I mean it. I'd rather be uncomfortably warm than uncomfortably cold any day of the week, and twice on Mondays. Welcome, summer!
