Sometimes all you need is a bowl of pudding
You have no idea how happy I am today has arrived.
No, my Canadian Blogging By Post parcel has not arrived yet (soon? please?).
Today, at about 4:30pm my vacation began--I packed up, set my voicemail and out-of-office messages and left. I won't return to the office for another 10 days.
I have very few *real* plans--Toronto on Sunday with The Fussy Eater to see Wingfield's Inferno and dinner afterwards. Victoria Day (aka "May Two-Four") looks as if it will start off with dim sum and then my darling dearest and I will drive off to The Stratford Festival and see a preview of London Assurance...and hopefully get to Chocolate Barr's. The rest of my week will be spent tidying, cooking, baking, doing homework, sleeping, watching TV...you know...
So, how do I start my time off? Well...doing homework, if truth be told...but lurking in my fridge are two tubs of kheer pudding (I'll explain why later).
Those tubs of milky-noodley-raisiny-cashewy sweet goodness are now shy one serving. A sweeter way of beginning my downtime I do not know.
Before the nonsense: 44 cups; 3 free coffees, 1 free doughnut
Now: 43 cups, 7 free coffees
