Well, that's not exactly true. I had to go to the post office to pick it up because the UPS guy on this side of town won't leave the package on the doorstep.
Knowing it had to by my online order from Chapters you know I had to go out!
Before I share, you know you are bored when you walk around a box store and you're STILL bored. Bored I tell you! When shopping doesn't make me happy I know I've hit rock bottom.
And I miss Bob.
Now you don't know this but years ago The Olive Garden restaurant used to have franchises up here in Canada. I don't like Italian food as a rule and salads and soups even less but I tell you, the food from this place was like manna from Heaven for me.
Colour me seriously pissed when overnight The Olive Garden packed up and left Canada (I have heard a rumour there is still one in Calgary but that's about 5 days from where I live).
Just before they left I discovered another beautiful vice called something like baked meat ravioli. Bob and I would go down to the restaurant and order Pasta e Fagioli soup, get the best salad I've ever tasted and an order of these ravioli appetizers. That's it. No main course necessary. (pssst, if anyone knows the recipes for these that actually taste like TOG then please e-mail me with them - no really, I serious!)
It's probably been 9 years since The Olive Garden slinked away (bastards) and it's been probably 6 years since I was last had some of their food courtesy of an over the border run.
Six years and I still remember all that was wonderful about the food.
Tonight Bob calls at 7:30pm and says 'guess where I am?'
I'm figuring he's in Times Square.
'The Olive Garden'
I was floored. It never occurred to me that TOG would not only still exist but that my hubby would go there without me!
I learned one thing about myself tonight. I rarely if ever get jealous because tonight I can honestly say I was sorely envious of my hubby's luck of sitting and eating food that I can only dream about. Weird sensation this jealousy thing is.
I had a salami sandwich for dinner. Thanks for asking.
Stupid panic attacks.
Isn't it Romantic by Ronda Thompson.
Kristie (J) and Renee have both blogged about this book and mentioned how funny some of the dating scenes are. Since finishing Stupid and Contagious I have been craving a good ol' fun book. I think this weekend may be a reading weekend because I am getting bored of some of the online word games I've been playing.
Yep, that's me, addictive personality who suddenly finds themselves ready to move on. See, I think Bob should take me to a casino, I'm sure I would get bored and move on - uh, no.
I believe it was Jay who mentioned how much she liked The Stranger I Married by Sylvia Day and since she has been blowing the recommendations out of the park, I figured this would be a good book to try! Funny how I buy books now without reading the blurbs anymore. I have no clue what this book is about.
Nalini Singh wrote one of my favourite books of last year called Slave to Sensation. I know that Harlequin books are different in theme and content but I'm pretty pumped about reading more by this author.
Talk about not reading the back blurbs of books. This is where that can bite you in the arse bad! I bought this book because I enjoyed The Real Deal by Lucy Monroe - sure I had some problems but I thought it was sexy and rated it fairly well. I think that book was either 2 or 3 years ago now and I haven't read anything by her since. So I decided to load one into the online cart.
It's a friggin' historical.
Lately I only buy historicals of authors that come highly recommended.
I'm a dumbass but that's not news.
Oh crap. I didn't even do this on purpose. Last but not least the latest MaryJanice Davidson.
I was desperate!
I know, I'm pathetic.
In my defense though if I can actually read the book it will count as a book read for the year.
I'll take it any way I can get it people!
