Happy Thursday

Happenings as of late:

 N makes his now secret "Knock Off Chuy's (But Way Better) Jalapeno Ranch Dip" about once a week. My coworkers raved about it when I brought it to work and I'm fairly sure my boss might fire me if I don't share the recipe.

 N's roommates A and K make me dinner fairly frequently. Probably because I hang out at their apartment all of the time. And because I know their secrets. Plus I give better girl woman advice than all 3 of them put together. I also might me setting up A with my friend B from work. Any suggestions for non awkward double date activities?
I also took a break from all of my studying (midterms already? crazy!) to go see Randy Rogers Band play at Wild West. The tickets were N's birthday present to me. That is A in the upper left hand corner and my friend from Interior Design, E, in the bottom right hand corner. We had so much fun, drunken crazies bothering us and all.
In case you're curious here he is live singing "Buy Myself a Chance"

And a recording of "Steal You Away".

I'm going to make all of you Texas country fans yet.

Snowy Superbowl

So who's playing today? Just kidding. I'll have to call my dad later to ask who I'm rooting for. That's what I usually do. N and I have been invited to a coworker's party tonight, but right now I'm just laying in bed watching Bones and looking at the huge snowflakes falling outside my window. I haven't had a Sunday off for a while and it is so nice to cozy up in my bed and study for a test tomorrow. It is my first one this semester. It is so crazy to think that 2 1/2 months of school left. Spring semester just flies by.

I hope you all have a fun Super Bowl Sunday. Go play in the snow!

N and I had a snowball fight, made snow angels, threw me onto a pile of snow, and ran around crazily with me on top of his shoulders. Oh and we made a heart with our initials like usual:
N and I on a snow day (and his 17th birthday!)  January 17, 2007. Do we look like babies? I think I look the same.

Cold In

It is cold here in Lubbock today (just like everywhere else I'm sure). Snow and ice everywhere and wind chills in the -10s. Was school canceled? No. I braved the bone breaking cold to attend two classes. One of which the "Gonedoughla" professor showed us a demonstration of how one "picks their colors" ala the fad from the 1980s.
It was definitely worth getting out of bed.

Luckily class is over and I don't work today. I am already close to finishing my homework for Friday and warm cheesy pizza is being delivered to my apartment right now. N had to go home this week to work on some college stuff and he is driving back here now. He might have to stop and stay in a town halfway here if the roads don't get better.

I wish N was here to play in the snow with me. He is my favorite. Want to know why he is so cool?

1. He got a promotion at work (from a busboy to a waiter) and has been training. The other day at work he was waiting on two ladies in their 50s. They were having a good time, knocking down a few margaritas (like 10) and they were teasing N the whole time. As they finished their meal N asked the obligatory "Would you like dessert? Sopapillas or cheesecake maybe?" and one of the ladies responds with "You know what kind of dessert I want." (!!!) But N responds with "I'm just not sure what you mean ma'am", winks, and walks away. Needless to say, he received about a $50 tip. He makes me laugh so hard. 

2. The other day N was driving and a man cut him off. At the stoplight the man gets out of his car and angrily starts walking towards N and his car. So what does N do? Make a U turn and drive away? No. He gets out of his car and says "I think you best get back in your car." So the man turns around and drives instead of bashing N or his car in.

Charming and a bad ass.
