Four Meetings and a Boner Pill

To the folk sending me those adverts in my email for “v1@gr@,” or whatever it is you're trying to disguise your grotesque wares as to bypass my spam filtering, please cease right now. It's getting annoying, and you're not convincing me of the pill’s efficacy when you have to flood my Inbox with requests to buy the garbage. Sorry, but I'm frankly not interested. I also don’t intend to purchase medications through sources that I can’t really verify. How do I know you're sending me the real deal, and not some sugar pills?

In other news, after what felt like the millionth endless meeting today, I'm free to roam the hallways of the building where I work and snipe computer issues out of the way as they come at me. So far, so goo, but I have yet to have a few moments to breathe, which is why I'm hammering this out in my lunch hour. Complaining gives me a chance to get it out of my system, and distance myself from it sufficiently that I can pretend like it’s happening to someone else. That being said, now that I’ve had a few moments to breathe, it seems far less bad than it was previously. Nothing like a good dose of denial to make one feel better instantly, is there?

In other other news, this will be the first weekend in a long time that neither Steve nor I have anything in particular planned. I'm looking forward to lounging around, and pretending like we’re actually being productive, when in reality, we will be nothing of the sort! I will most likely get some cooking done for the upcoming week, so that I can have meals at the ready. Maybe I can whip up a batch of uppuma? That sounds rather nice right now, as the polenta seems to have gone off rather well with Steve (although I'm not a huge fan myself), and uppuma is more of a complete meal all by itself, if I add in some vegetables. Yes, of course, the recipe is in the book.

Yeah, uppuma would be perfect, especially since it looks like it is going to be a rainy weekend. I checked the forecasts, and there are Dark and Fell predictions of doom as far as rain is concerned, and a hot steamy bowl of creamy uppuma would totally hit the spot, especially with some spinach, and lots of fresh curry leaves. I certainly hope there's some rava at home! If not, I'll be mildly disappointed, and use farina instead. It'll be just fine either way.

Much better. Now that I have things to look forward to, my mood has immediately lifted, and I feel better. :)
