i can't decide if the best part about Maid Days is the folded triangles on my toilet paper rolls or that all my crap is neatly piled, but i love it. and especially on a day like today where i woke up looking forward to crawling back into my bed in the evening.
and i would be there now if the fire alarm wasn't screaming (and it screams something fierce and likely unsafe for human ears). instead, i have opened a bottle of velvet fog and am waiting it out. shame it is getting darker earlier now or i could enjoy my beer on my balcony and admire the uniformed firemen that come when this happens once each month.
but instead, i am watching the television show that my mom has me hooked on, come dine with me, a channel 4 programme from the uk that is kitschy, hilarious, and real. which is much more than i can say for american reality tv shows and reminds me of life in england when i had dinner parties for my international friends and had to balance halal, vegetarian, south african meat eaters, and 5 flatmates in a shared kitchen.
and on the topic of food, i made my very own meatballs last night! all by myself! for the first time! and they are delicious.
