Long night, more reading, weekend plans

It's looking like another long night. We have some work coming down the pipe, but it'll be a while getting converted. At least that means that fredcritter has some stuff to do for a while.

Me, I've brought Larry Niven's Ringworld along. Since I got all the way through This Immortal last night, I figure I'll get a big chunk out of this one tonight.

Because I worked Wednesday this week, I have Friday off. This is serendipitous, because the maternal side of my family is having a reunion up north on Saturday. So I'm heading up there tomorrow afternoon and driving back on Saturday night. I'm excited to see some of my relatives and I'm also kinda looking forward to the road trip.

I like long road trips and having the iPod for tunage along the way will make it go very quickly. Will have to figure out some snacks to take along. If I'd been thinking when I went grocery shopping today, I would have done it then, oh, well.

Speaking of shopping, I tried out the "salad bar fajitas" idea that 90_percent_sure suggested as a way to get more veggies into the diet. Yum! It worked fabulously. Green pepper, carrot, onion and cauliflower. Sauteed in a little peanut oil, couple of spoons of salsa, wrap in a microwaved tortilla and Presto! instant yummy veggies! Would be even better if I could grill the veggies and get that great charred taste, but I'll take quick, easy and yummy over waiting for the grill to heat up any day.
