The Crustacean

Exercise: 30 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes on the treadmill. 3 sets each leg presses and inclined bench presses. I'm finally benching a little more than the bar (10 lbs.)

Breakfast: Special K with strawberries, Silk Vanilla lite, banana.

Lunch: Progresso lentil soup, quesadilla, salsa, half an avo.

Snack: more of that damn Costco trail mix! It's not even good to me, except the M&Ms, almonds, and raisins.

Simon showed up at work to pick me up for his birthday dinner, but he had forgotten I work a little later, and also that I ride a bike. So I gave him my backpack and keys and told him to wait for me at home. When I arrived:

Simon: Wow, you're sweaty!

Anna: I know. I just biked 1.5 miles!

Simon: Let's open my presents now.

Anna: No, I gotta shower and get ready for going out! 

[Showers, dresses, does make up]

Simon: Let's open my presents now!

Anna: I gotta blow dry and curl my hair.  Wait a little.

[5 minutes before we have to leave for the restaurant]

Anna: Here are your presents!

[opens, feigns surprise even though he specifically told me he wanted iLife09 for his birthday a week ago]

Simon: I want another present.

Anna: I don't have any more money!

Simon: Anna, it would be the best birthday present in the world if you would answer this question I have.

[gets down on one knee, proposes]


I loved the proposal and the ring, but I'm not going to let it change my lifestyle! At the restaurant later, I ordered the roast dungeness crab IN SHELL because it is more fun to work for your food. Also, I was celebrating, after all! Nothing says congratulations like a big, tasty crustacean. I asked Simon to hold the ring in his pocket while I sucked that thing dry of sweet, juicy crab meat.

Poll: Which crab is better, blue Maryland crabs or red San Francisco dungeness?

I LOVE IT! Great job Simon! I have to say SF dungeness all the way! That is what we feasted on tonite! How was Benihana? Did you go w/ the scallops?

Yay Anna! Pretty bling.

Maryland, but only because of that delicious rub they put on them (even if it makes your hands smell for days).
