thursdayness: a blog link-up with randalin @ harvesting kale

i know it's not thursday, but in my defence i did write this post last thursday. i planned on adding photos to it, then forgot about it and now here i am posting it almost a week later sans photos. shocking, i know. so i'm not changing the post title and that's that. 

i think a blog link-up is some sort of social thingamagig where bloggers all focus on the same topic and then we can somehow link back to one original blogger who will then have links for all the other blogs that participated. i might be way off on this, but it sounds close enough to be almost right.  either way, i'm participating.  i am a participator.  i am connecting and doing something social.  go me, go.

i am about to list my currently themes... but you should know that being pregnant causes them to change dramatically from day to day. i could probably do a currently post everyday and it would just blow your mind. and mine.

anyhow... we're off!

cooking: pasta.  if cooking is included in all forthcoming currently posts you can pretty much be sure i'll just be typing *see week 1*.  i do cook other things. sometimes -- chicken, steak...maybe once a week. rice - pretty much never. bread, pizza.  i love to eat. like really, really, really, really  love to eat. and so cooking is mandatory. if i must get specific, today i'm going to cook filet mignon with sauteed mushrooms and onions. we'll eat it with a baguette. and we'll drink carbonated water.  then i'll probably inhale a caramilk chocolate bar for dessert.  {edit: i did cook this last thursday and did all of the above with grace and perfection. as for today, today - i made crepes with prosciutto, arugula, mushrooms and onions. they were polished off with a reese's peanut butter cup: caramilk has been replaced. i will miss him dearly}

wearing:  one of 4 maternity tank tops i caved and purchased a couple weeks ago. it's all about the length.  i actually thought i could make it through this pregnancy with all my regular, non-maternity clothes until one day i felt wind on my belly and realized my shirts were shrinking. 4 long tank tops. i will wear them until i can't wear them anymore. they will be my summer. paired with thrifted skirts and harem pants. sandals on mah feet. so much easier than a winter pregnancy of  jackets and sweaters, jeans and dress pants. blah. blah. blah. note to you: have a summer baby - you get to wear skirts and tanks the whole way through and bonus: outdoor birthday parties. it's a win-win situation no matter which way you look at it. except for the sweat and swelling of course. {edit: it has become shockingly cold since writing this post, and i am now forced to wear my tanks under long-sleeved tops that are possibly too short, paired with jeans that don't button. no sandals. no fun}

wanting: chocolate.

listening to: seba moan and groan. poor boy has strep throat. you know he actually started moaning "mamma" a couple days ago and me, being the bright light bulb that i am, didn't even realize he may have been coming down with something.  i figured he was hitting an 'i will moan and whine for my mother constantly' stage.  i was already trying to figure out the best strategy for diffusing it as quickly and moan-free as humanly possible. {edit: the boy is healed. thank the lord. i now listen to various remixes of songs by seba. how he manages to start with old mac donald, followed by twinkle twinkle, blended into frere jacques and perfectly ending with bingo is beyond me. the boy is clearly a lyrical genius.}

watching: nothing. we barely watch tv - not because we are those parents/people who believe tv is the devil and renders our brains useless, possibly inducing us into mini-comas (which it probably does) -- but because we're just not interested in anything besides two programs: grey's anatomy (which had the season finale last week) and hockey (which i've been told is currently running the stanley cup playoffs). besides tv i'm watching seba grow, water boil, laundry pile up, boobs swell and a belly to match. i don't think i'm missing out on much.  i wouldn't mind watching the black that is the inside of my eyelids a little more. i'm tired. and exhausted.  but push on i will.  oh yes. forgot -- i'm also watching what i eat. and i mean this literally. actually looking at the trashy junk that i'm about to inhale and then inhaling it. i tend to rub my double chin while chewing.

i really did want to add photos to this post, but honestly it's too late for effort right now. and so i leave you wanting more. lisa the tease, that's me.


ps. randalin: i deserve an 'A' for at least completing the task right? i think it was supposed to be a little more interesting - maybe with links and cool things of interest.  instead it's just about me. i may have missed something. or i'm just an egocentric blabber. probably a little bit of both. or a lot.

  1. I was so happy to see that you linked up!! This is the perfect kind of post for you. I love your "blabbering!!"

    Normally you have pictures of food you're cooking which always makes me hungry. Writing about what you're cooking had the same effect. I love how often you use prosciutto. And pancetta. Yummm.

    1. thanks dear! i'm so happy i was able to link-up =) too bad i'm only now reading your comment... i've gotta work on my 're-visiting blog to read comments from randalin'activity!
      you think i use a lot of prosciutto? (insert sarcasm) lol

  2. I love this post. Your "egocentric blabbering" was one of my favorite posts on the link up. Also, I know you don't know me, but I really would like it if you cooked me dinner some time.

    1. thanks wendy! such a lovely comment -- and i'm not just saying this because you are the only other person to ever comment on my blog other than randalin. i don't know you either -- but i'd love to cook you dinner as long as i'm eating it with you. i always cook double of whatever is required. just so you know.

  3. I nееԁeԁ to thank you fοr this wonderful read!
