Thursday Things

1)  I bought a pumpkin yesterday.  If you think I bought it to carve, WRONG!  I bought it to make thisObviously.

2)  Brownies = Darn good.   
Brownies delivered to my desk during a long day by a well-meaning coworker = Epic Awesomeness.

3)  I read that Trifon's Pizza was some magical, unicorn power, out-of-this-world pizza.  LIARS!  It is devastatingly average.

4)  Ummmm, this may or may not be coming in the mail one of these days.  I quite possibly, might, maybe, die from anticipation in the meantime. 

5)  Have you heard of red lattes?  Apparently they are the new thing.  They are made with red rooibos tea, which is caffeine free and four times higher in antioxidants than green tea.  I tried one this evening.  Not bad.

6)  I tried it while working on thesis stuff.  Blah.  Although, I must admit that this thesis stuff is much better than being in class and doing assignments/exams.  This is the first Fall semester that I have not been in classes since I was 4.  I love it.  I am looking forward to eventually not being in school at all.  12 years of post secondary education is long enough!

7)  I just found out I have a leaf sucker-upper.  Ha.  Good to know after I raked, and hand-scooped up 8 garbage bags of leaves.  Lucky for me, new leaves have appeared where the old ones were. 

8)  We're thinking of roasting a duck this weekend.  Quack.

What are your Thursday things?

Oooh, everyone loves free brownies. :) I have a friend at Trifon's who will make me pizza with vegan cheese, so I'm a little biased on that front, ha ha. And oh my god, I can't believe you've been in school for so long. Must be a relief to be (mostly) done!

Gotta say I don't love Trifon's either. If you're ever in Saskatoon, though, head over to Christie's Il Secondo just off Broadway and grab a pizza. I'm partial to the margherita.

I'm also super-happy not to be in classes/in school this fall. You beat my 11 years of post-secondary!

Wow - brownies delivered to your desk? You have an awesome co-worker!!

It's Sunday now and Thursday feels like a distant for me! On my mind today is the fact that I really need a nap as I have horrible circles under my eyes that I need to get rid of!

Average pizza is always so sad.
