While I've been working to finish our bedroom, lots of activities have been getting in the way. I turned 30 and spend about a week crying celebrating, then it was time for Dan's birthday and I spent about 4 days drinking cooking for that. Since we have a new lovely kitchen, I decided I would prepare the mother of all meals for his birthday. I even made a little menu:
I was chef, server and diner all in one night! It was great, but the prep/clean-up was a little more than I bargained for. During this culinary adventure, I managed to drop a very large/very heavy metal spoon on my foot. It was one of these:
It left me with a large bruise and a painful gait. Long story short, I'm feeling a little lazy about finishing projects these days . . .
Alright, so Benny is not my real name. It's my nickname. In fact...I am a lady (by gender, not necessarily by attitude). But, it is fun, and makes me feel "tougher" when talking about painting and tiling and smashing things.
I didn't give it to myself. It is a childhood nickname which came from Benjamin Bunny (the cousin of Peter Rabbit).
In fact, Benny is a common nickname for Bernadette. Ever see Circle of Friends with Minnie Driver? Yup, her name was Benny in that.
Anyway. . .
