same place, different face

I got a new bed this weekend! Woo-hoo!

I've been sleeping on a cot that was only supposed to tide me over for the first month or so of life in my new apartment. That was ten months ago, so I guess I felt it was about time.

It's a queen sized pillow top mattress, definitely softer than it is firm. I have a beautiful pale green and cream colored silk (or at least silk-like) bedding to go on top, only adding to its comfortable allure.

My dog also enjoys it greatly, as I learned last night when I woke up to the sound of his snoring at both 2:23 and 4:30 a.m.

Other than that, I organized my closet and bookshelf, cleaned the kitchen and bathroom and washed the windows. There was not much else to do on Saturday afternoon but watch as tornadoes ripped through Atlanta and other portions of north Georgia.

Tonight is a St. Patrick's Day celebration complete with traditional corned beef and cabbage with the Irish parents (well, mother), then on to Guinness with a few friends at a local "bar" (or rather, place that serves alcohol and pretends to be a bar) and then doing what us Irish do best ... passing out early.

Yes, I'm Irish ... at least, 50%. So I can truly celebrate this holiday. More so than the posers. :-)

How sad is this? I canceled dinner plans for Friday because ... get this ... The Sound of Music airs beginning at 7:30 on ABC Family. Words cannot express my love for this movie. I have it on VHS, but own no VHS player, so the movie sits at my parents' house. I should just suck it up and buy it on DVD, but alas ... I am cheap.

So I will do the socially unacceptable thing and not go out Friday night (you read correctly) in favor of putting my hair up in a scrunchy, ordering a pizza (large, thin crust, chicken with extra black olives from Pizza Hut), drinking a homemade pitcher of margaritas and watching my favorite movie from childhood.

All in my new bed. :-)
