Thursday Thoughts

1. March Madness starts today. As usual, SP & I filled out brackets as did my parents and we'll see who wins this year. It's almost always my mom. My dad is almost always the loser. We haven't decided on a prize yet, but one suggestion is that the loser buys the others a Rita's one night.

I already survived a potential disaster when #3 Notre Dame squeaked by #14 Northwestern. However, disaster has already struck because #3 Iowa State just lost to #14 UAB. Crap.

2. I watched the movie Locke today. It's just Tom Hardy, driving a car, but I could look at and listen to Tom Hardy all day long. I'm surprised how much I enjoyed the movie even though it's pretty much just 1.5 hours of him driving in a car while talking on the phone.

3. No books this past week, but I just requested a bunch from the library so I'm sure that soon I'll be overwhelmed with reading material.
4. Last weekend we ended up at Central Diner for dinner. I tried some new dishes and wasn't as happy as in the past with other meals there. To start, I ordered cheesesticks. I don't know why, but I just really needed cheesesticks,
For my meal, I got the Chicken Parmesan Sandwich. I've been wanting to try it for a while. It was huge! Lots of cheese. My mistake was that I didn't listen to the part of my brain that was trying to warn me to stick with my policy of rarely, if ever, ordering meals with red sauce because all red sauces are different and some are just not to my liking. Sadly, the red sauce for the cheesesticks and sandwich was one with chunks of tomato and a thinner consistency. I prefer smooth and thick red sauce (tomato puree and tomato paste). So it was disappointing, but only because of my personal red sauce preferences.
SP liked my red sauce a lot because that's how he likes his red sauce: with tomato chunks. For his meal, he ordered the special Twin Filet Combo: filet of sole stuffed with crab and a filet of sole stuffed with spinach and feta. He said it was really good.
We got dessert to go. Of course he got the rice pudding. I got the sprinkle cake, or fun-fetti cake, whatever you want to call it. It was enormous! And tasty. Lots of sprinkles.

5. Tomorrow is spring! I'm celebrating by going out in the rain to get my gray hair colored.
