Whatever Happened to Saturday Night

| | Comments (1)

Wednesday's Big Bang Theory had the first instances of three knocks Penny, and Thursday's had the first Soft Kitty.  Although I'm surprised the Roomate Agreement didn't come up in another episode I saw this week where Penny wanted to stay over.  Also into season four of Brooklyn 99.

Also Thursday was the vomit pizza. Again.

Friday had a very nice pork soup with Connor at 54 Benjamin.

Then had a super frustrating afternoon fighting with one of our firewalls which was being retarded.  Didn't get to do all the changes I wanted to do because it was being a big poo.

Had dinner with the sweetie at Alice's - crying duck salad and pork larb.

Then did all the food shopping for the club Christmas in July.

Saturday morning we went to pick up the pork for dinner.  Now last weekend I asked if I could book some pork but the dude said two four kilo pork shoulders wouldn't be a problem they'd always have them.  So I went in yesterday and asked, and another dude was all like, well I only have this 3.3kg one, and oh I guess there's also this 5kg one out the back.  And I'm like, no that won't work, I can't cook a 3kg and a 5kg one it'll stuff up all the cooking times.  But Stu was trying to avoid confrontation and I really really didn't want the hassle of such different sized cuts and wanted to go somewhere else and OMFG it was so stressful.  In the end we got the 3.3kg one and the bigger one cut down to 4.2kg.  I was still PISSED though.  Wish I'd gone somewhere else.  So my happy mood turned into crankiness for the morning.

Got out to the club and then had the usual hassle of telling people no I really don't want any help right now.  I appreciate the offers, really I do, but having extra people in the kitchen actually just stresses me out.  It's only in the last half hour that I really need any help.  Until then it's like, well you can go decorate the hall if you like.  Anyway.  It all went pretty smoothly (the 3.3kg pork was somewhat overdone, even though I took it out half an hour earlier than the other one.  And the turkey rolls got slightly burnt on the bottom by the bbq as well.  People really liked the salad I made from a recipe out of this month's Coles magazine).  About 45 people all up.

Today was pretty quiet.  Tidied my desk and did a few bits and pieces.  Stumpy was being a bit spuddy.

Watched an episode of BBT late in season 1 where they talked about trying to get "the girl from Blossom who is actually a neuroscientist" to join their trivia team, which cracked me up.  I wonder if they knew at that point (a full two seasons before Mayim Bialik first appeared on the show) that she'd ever join the cast.  Were they talking to her about it at an earlier point?  Pretty cool anyway.  

Cooked potato bake for dinner, and watched the last two episodes of season 7 of Homeland.

I admire all your catering efforts. I wouldn't know where to start catering for so many people. Well done!
