1. So, after cooking a few nice meals lately, and bringing home doggy bags from a couple nice restaurants, we had a pretty ridiculously good selection of leftovers in the fridge. Last night was leftover night, and I opened the fridge and asked myself, "self, do I feel like having turkey, pork, lamb, or shrimp for dinner tonight?" Perhaps the first time ever that I have had such a high-falutin combination of leftovers to pick from. I went with the shrimp. And grits.
2. Also, my semester just ended tonight. I just finished my hebrew final, and it is now Christmas break! Its pretty anticlimactic this semester, as Aubrey and I's lives are much more controlled by her work schedule than by my leisurely academic schedule. Still, for the next three weeks I get to study and read whatever I darn well feel like. Any suggestions?
