leftovers, teamwork, and commercials
posted by soe 10:35 pm

Sorry for the blog silence. I’m up in Connecticut for a few days and was up late trying to finish things Thursday night before departing early yesterday. As I was heading to bed for an hour, I remembered the blog but wisely decided you’d all prefer me to get those 60 minutes of sleep rather than coming back out to the computer.

Even if it’s not true, I’m glad I made that decision.

So, here are three beautiful things from last week:

1. Rudi was away for part of the week, so it was nice to be able to come home and pull something out of the fridge that didn’t require prep or thinking. I mean, sure, risotto and guacamole is probably an unusual dinner combination, but it worked.

2. I like this season’s volleyball team. We’re wildly inconsistent, either winning or losing all our games in any given night, but the group of people is nice and when we gel properly, it feels like we could take anyone on (and when we don’t, it still feels like we’re just that one right thing away from doing so).

3. Rudi’s friend Geoff is British, but he spent a few years in the U.S. and one of the things he liked was the brilliance/ridiculousness of our Super Bowl commercials. He’s returned to England, where they do show the game but with their own normal British commercials. Thanks to computers and stateside friends, though, he and his sweetie, Vicki, are able to call via Skype and share some of our pop culture. Rudi pulls the laptop over to the tv and they chat during the game and then watch the main event together during time outs and between quarters.

How about you? What’s been beautiful in your world this week?
