Hm, did I forget to blog? I haven't had much to say for the past couple of days, really. I'm just writing my dissertation. Yes, my life is that exciting.
But J started his new job today, and that's exciting, even if all he did was to sit at his computer and message me about various ways he was finding to get to India or Thailand on the cheap. Supposedly he had to take some kind of online certification test today and maybe he was doing that at the same time he was messaging me, I really have no idea. (Okay, I'm sure that's not all he did today, but that's the part that I could see.)
Meanwhile, I was trapped inside the apartment, waiting for some cable that J had ordered and which was late in arriving. UPS left an attempted delivery notice yesterday, in spite of our being home all day, which makes us question whether they even rang the bell or perhaps whether it might be broken. They promised to redeliver it today, so I waited all day. I made the mistake of not showering before J left, which meant that I couldn't shower until either he got back or the cable arrived. And of course, it didn't show up until after J got back from work. And wouldn't you know, he'd ordered the wrong cable anyway so now he has to return it.
Now that I've written this post about how horribly boring my day was, and probably put all of you to sleep just from reading about it, I'm thinking I really should have just written about the amazing Greek restaurant we went to on Friday night, Effie's. This time I got the best dish at the table. J's lamb skewers were relatively good but not fantastic, and C's pita looked pretty standard, but the moussaka was absolutely something to
write home blog about. It was moist, but not overcooked, and had a lovely and strong hint of cinnamon. I was even thrilled not to be able to finish it because it just meant that I could have the second half of it for lunch the next day (and it was still just as good then).
