So in my last post I was lamenting my general ineptitude at life, and a hand full of recent well-intentioned blunders. Specifically I shrunk Steve’s wool sweater when trying to get out a wine stain. Good news is that I shrunk it to exactly my size! Hooray for my new kelly green merino wool v neck! I’m looking stylin in it with my green croc print pointy-toe flats.
So lately I’ve been on a roll of messing things up when I try to do good. For instance, I’m a deputized voter registrar, so I thought I would help Steve by registering him to vote in Bexar county…. but I didn’t check off one of the boxes on his application on mistake and his application got rejected. Voting isn’t a big deal right? It’s only his right as a citizen….
Another example of a well intentioned blunder happened just this past weekend. At his office party an inebriated coworker spilled a glass or red wine all down his back. I tried to help get the stain out, and accidentally shrunk his sweater to child size. I have no idea how it happened, I used cold water and didn’t put it in the dryer. I felt so terrible, its like I’m cursed or something. I cried a bunch and apologized – of course he wasn’t upset at all, but I’m a stupid girl so it was a trauma for me.
Maybe next week will go better.
So today during my usual rambling tour around the interwebs I found a great little site called “Good Taste With Tanji.” Tanji Patton is a beloved former TV personality and pseudo celebrity in San Antonio, and now she has started a lifestyle website which is mostly about food and wine. One of my favorite things about the site is the “pairings” tool that suggests appropriate wines based on your ingredients. She has a great list of recipes from area restaurants, and lots of multimedia content. Her coverage of the upcoming New World Food And Wine Festival makes me feel like San Antonio is pretty happening city. Also note that I’m devastated that I’ll be missing out on all the NWFWF events as it coincides with the Texas Spirits reunion in Austin.
I watched the entire first season of Laguna Beach on DVD this weekend. Additional self destructive behaviors I participated in over the weekend include but are not limited to: doing a load of Steve’s laundry but none of my own, spending way too much at the grocery store, and procrastinating on my MIS midterm project.
The only good news is that I chose to procrastinate by cleaning the apartment. I bought a new Swiffer WetJet and put it to good use in the foyer and kitchen. Long overdue for some mop action.
