Yes, yes, another entry. I predict the novelty will wear off in.... about 2 days. But it's all good.

It's rainy out, and I'm pretty comfortably ensconced at home here. I was tossing around the idea of going to a movie tonight, but I think I'm just going to stay in and hang with the cat. 'Sides, there's a new Simpsons ep on tonight, so I simply must watch that. ;)

Maybe I'll pull the guitar out, too. I haven't practised much this week, and Joni Mitchell is inspiring me. I've been working on learning Aimee Mann's "Save Me", and I've got the chords pretty well down now -- just need to figure out the strumming. Couple of tricky chords in this one, too, so I'm pretty proud of myself. I also think I've finally figured out how to play Weeping Tile's "Dogs and Thunder", which will be a real source of pride if I can learn that properly. I grabbed the chords to "Lovesong" and to a couple of Hefner tunes, too, but they just don't sound quite right on solo acoustic guitar. For some strange reason. Go figure. Especially a majorly amateur acoustic guitar. Heh.

Just finished dinner -- a really yummy new Dhal recipe, which turned out pretty nicely for a first try, if I do say so myself. It would have been nice with some pita bread, but I forgot that I finished the last of it earlier this week. Oops. So it was plain dhal for me. I really need to start planning my eating -- maybe that will result in actually having everything I need in the house when I go to cook/eat. But I've never been any good at making menus and sticking to them. Oh well.

I'm going to go sit with the cat and digest now.
