tuesday nights

i am just a bit tipsy right now. and ya know what? i’m okay with that.

just got home from an amazing tuesday evening with some friends. we were doing dessert and drinks for the last month or so on tuesdays, today we upped the ante.

i made dinner and one friend did dessert.

tonight’s menu featured glazed pork chops, au gratin potatoes, crescent rolls and the friend made crème brûlée. *drool* and then there was the champagne. mmm, champagne is now a requirement. we have been having 2 bottles at each night, we have too much fun with this.

two of them have gotten into the habit of sabering all bottles of champagne open. not entirely sure what that is? just youtube it. there’s some funny videos of people screwing it up majorly as well.

fun fact:you can also saber a beer bottle open it if has the proper lip.

we did that last week when i had my first taste of leinenkugel sunset wheat. everyone else said it tasted like fruity pebbles (i don’t agree, but then again….i don’t like beer either).

either way, tonight was a fabulous night.

there’s a saying that “not all who wander are lost.” apparently it’s a quote from tolkien’s lord of the rings. i’ve always loved it because i personally love to wander in nature, around the internet, and  new places. if i was able to go all over the world i would.

then again. there are times, more then i can count, where i feel that i am  the opposite. as i have been in one place by far too long. i feel there should be an opposite of this.

“not all who are lost, wander”

it’s true, how many people have lived in one place or stayed at the same job and all the while disliking it? having no idea who or what they would really like to do/be? we are lost inside ourselves desperately seeking who we are. going round and round with the same thoughts, never really getting anywhere but farther and farther down the rabbit hole because of the “what if’?s”.

courtesy of my stumbleupon

the “what if”s” come out to play at night

when you can’t sleep
nothing seems quite right.

your brain likes to play tricks on you
it knows just what
and when or who.

the road not traveled
the experience lost
the book not written or read.

kick any regrets to the curb, i say
for what is past is past.
the future is in play.
