Anyway, I’m supposed to give seven facts about myself and then nominate seven other bloggers for the award. I did something like this here so I’ll have to think up seven different facts. Here goes.
1. Lee is a nickname. I would tell you my real name but it’s so unusual that this blog would probably come up if anyone googles it. So, email me if you want to know! I decided to go by Lee in second grade.
2. I see a lot of live music. In 2009, I saw Ben Folds, Morissey, Depeche Mode, The Flaming Lips, David Berkeley, Josh Joplin, U2, Dave Matthews Band and more that I’m sure that I’m forgetting. I couldn’t even tell you how many concerts I’ve been to in my lifetime.
3. I majored in Art and minored in English. If I went back to college, I probably would not pick the same major and minor.
4. I used to be sort of a hippie. I wore hemp necklaces and birkenstocks pretty much every day throughout college.
5. I have a horrible singing voice. I wish I could sing. I like singing. Both of my parents can’t sing either. I’m doomed.
6. I don’t think that I have an accent. I’ve been told that my voice is nasally though. I don’t consider that my accent, but apparently people from the DC area have nasally voices, according to my non-DC friends.
7. I don’t wear a lot of makeup on a daily basis. When I’m feeling fancy, I put on some eyeliner. Lol.
So, now for the nominations. Feel free to ignore this if you don’t want to fill it out. I won’t be offended!
Last night, I went to a Bangladeshi restaurant called Panahar with some friends. Bangladeshi food is very similar to Indian food. They had a special New Years Menu which was yet another family style option. Four out of the six of us were interested in getting it. Seriously, this is the third time in a month that I’ve gone to dinner where most people want to do family style. Unlike Maggiano’s, the people at Panahar were totally cool with me not ordering the special. Instead, I had the Halim soup which was wonderful. I don’t know what vegetables were in it, but it was delicious. For my entree, I had Channa Begoon. I managed to stay away from the naan, but definitely had a fair share of basmati rice.
I didn’t eat that, that much, but I felt so full afterwards. Like uncomfortably full. This always seems to happen to me after I eat Indian food. It tastes really good, but my stomach is never pleased with me. I still felt like I had a rock in my stomach when I woke up this morning.
It’s so cold out this morning. Seriously, it’s like 18 and the windchill is 11. This is too cold. I live in the south!! I am not supposed to have to deal with frigid temperatures. And really, if it’s going to be this cold, I would at least like some snow. Murphy, on the other hand, is dying to go outside. I just can’t do it yet. I don’t even know how to dress for the extreme cold anymore. Don’t make fun of me for calling this the extreme cold! I need to get my butt to the gym. I finally feel like my cold is gone. I still have a slight cough, but am feeling so much better.
Happy last day of the long weekend. Back to normal tomorrow. I’m trying to embrace it.
