Why I didn’t win the lottery last night

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 9:31 am

Because, duh, I didn’t buy a ticket! How the hell am I going to stop working and play all day if I don’t win the lottery!

On the other hand, I had a fantastic dinner with my husband. It’s so nice to actually have conversation at dinner. And not just about stupid stuff. We talk about politics, religion, the future, the past, our feelings, our frustrations, our joys for the day. Talking to him feels so natural and always has since I met him. I made a damn good decision to marry him.

So last night we enjoyed our pizza and beer and conversation. Then we stopped by Starbucks for a couple of lattes and some breakfast blend beans for in the morning. Even though we have a grinder at home we had them grind it. Just easier than messing with it in the morning, you know?

And we watched Walk the Line. I really liked it. It made me cry because I thought it was such a sweet love story. I was really impressed with their singing, and in a couple of shots, Joaquin really looked like Johnny Cash.


  1. I thought Joaquin was incredible.

  2. I really want to see Walk The Line! I’m glad you and Nick had a nice dinner and got a chance to have some adult conversation!

    I hope you have a great Thursday!

  3. Joaquin is incredible in more ways than one…and I have yet to see the movie!! I was surprised this movie didn’t get much attention at the Awards.

    Sounds like a perfectly lovely evening. Now, let’s talk cloning….;)

  10. We loved Walk the Line. I just think Reese Witherspoon is the cutest thing ever. Joaquin did awesome (of course).
    I’m glad y’all had a good evening. That’s so cool. It’s a cool thing to be married and to have good conversations with your spouse. Nick sounds like such a great guy and I think you made the best decision in marrying him.
    Have a great day and weekend.

  11. Sounds like you needed chill out time with your man.

    Walk the Man was excellent, i’m quite getting into Johnny Cash music these days following in my dad’s footsteps oh and Joaquin was rather tasty 😉
