Made grilled lamb chops for dinner tonight and they were absolutely fantastic. Not that I'm braggin' on my cooking, it was just a very simple recipe and had great flavor. garlic, fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, cayenne pepper, sea salt and olive oil. Blend it to a paste, rub it on the chops, let it marinate for an hour in the fridge then grill. The recipe recommended taking the chops out and letting them get to room temp before grilling but I wasn't that patient.

Good news: Got a good review at work which lead to a bonus and a raise!

Bad news: Basement wall collapsed.

Good news: It's at the old house which we were going to tear down anyway.

Bad news: Looks like tearing it down is going to be far more expensive than I ever imagined. There goes that bonus and raise, for the next decade!

Good news: I have a job. Life is good!

Great lines in songs I never noticed before:

"I'm sprawled across the davenport of despair" - Warren Zevon, Disorder in the House, The Wind

"And if you tell anyone I'll slash the tires on your house" - Billy Bob Thornton, Purple Passion, Hobo

Ooh, that sounds delicious! And YAY! on the raise and bonus and BOO! about the old house.

How is that our possession always know when we have spare money? Corgiguy and I were planning to take a much-needed vacation this week, and then our clothes dryer was pronounced un-salvageable by the repairman and we have to pay to have our elm tree, which overhangs the street, trimmed because the city refuses to do it. All that together just zinged the vacation money right out of our wallets.

It's not even close to a power line -- drats! We figured the city would cut it because it scrapes the top of the school buses, but no. Ever since the recession started, the city's been very stingy with services.

On the plus side, we can use the clothesline on the back porch until we come across a good deal on a dryer. It makes us look all environmentally conscious instead of financially strapped. :D
