i watched a lot of ugly betty. this is remarkable, as i rarely watch 'new' tv right now and suddenly got to catch several episodes in a row. ha.
marp just sat down to clip his toenails next to me. er. hahahaha. this whole domestic thing is still amusing me endlessly. (he's very perturbed that i typed about it, though. i say it's only fair.)
earlier tonight we cooked fancy dinner. the rule is that every weekend, we try a new recipe off the internet. last week was marp's week, and we cooked a really nice chicken dish with fresh ginger, freshly squeezed orange juice, garlic and honey. this weekend i picked out an indian curry chicken recipe. it was SO good. it included shalott onions, tandoori curry paste, curry powder, garlic, a cinnamon stick, coconut milk and star anise.
i also forced the marp to say hello to my mom on the phone. i figured it was time after 9 months. my method was very slick: mom said to say hi to marp - i stuck the phone to his face and told him to say hi back. he grew beet red and silent. it was hilarious.
i poked him, and then he said hi, and then he was stuck listening to my mom prattle on for 2-3 minutes about random things. my mom is very amusing - she doesn't really care who she is talking to, she will talk endlessly regardless.
and now, at 5 am, it's time for bed. the excitement never stops, i know. cin cin.
