...when your dinner plans and your hippie's dinner plans fall through, and you are faced with the prospect of cooking something for dinner that's going to require you to both wash dishes before you start so you CAN cook as well as stop at the grocery store on the way home so you HAVE something to cook, and really you just can't face it. then one of your good friends starts talking about saag paneer, and the urge to eat some indian food just overwhelms all else.* next thing you know, you are on the phone ordering takeout from the great indian place you used to hit for lunch and haven't been to in ages. here's my dinner menu now, and all i have to do is kill 20 minutes before i can go get it:
chicken tikka masala
rice pudding with cashews
in other news, i was STOOD UP for knitting lunch today! i guess that's the price i pay for yesterday's knitting spontaneity. no love...
also, i can't stop shopping today. the bastards at kenneth cole put the boots i want on sale and then sold out in my size--grrrrr. there's a duvet cover at pottery barn i want. i have two pairs of dance shoes picked out and placed on my ebay watch list. and there are countless christmas gifts i need to order/buy. both time and money are in annoyingly short supply around here.
* i am known among my people for my somewhat random and outlandish food cravings, and will go to great lengths to get them satisfied--ask anyone i know. they make fun of me for this.
