Food-wise, I have been so good about only eating half of my gnocchi. For dinner last night, I cooked up a pot of gnocchi with pesto. It was so good. I can't believe I never thought of this combination. I also heated up some frozen broccoli and added it on top. I saved half, and that was my lunch today. So yum.
Tomorrow is going to be colder, and then it just may slide into winter weather from there. Sigh. I have Chicago weather to look forward to now. I was actually looking at the weather the other day and thinking to myself, wow, it will be in the 30's. That will be so nice and hot. Then, I remembered that I was looking at the temperatures in Fahrenheit. Damn.
I have a few days to go, and I still haven't packed. Knowing me, it won't happen until the night before. I guarantee it.
Our friend Shona e-mails out a lame joke (exactly like it sounds) every Friday. Just last week, she added a fun fact to the chain. They seem to think that it's a good idea to put it on my blog. So, without further ado, here is the inaugural Lame Joke & Fun Fact Friday (but I'm posting it on a Tuesday since I forgot until now).
Q: What did the big phone say to the little phone?
A: You're too young to get engaged
Fact: Hippos have pink milk
Good stuff, right? There have actually been a few jokes that made me laugh out loud (literally), so I may have to search my inbox for those.
