Memorial Day weekend highlights

Friday: Did all the grocery shopping, and ran into an old friend of mine. I didn’t know he had moved back to AZ, and is living on the South side of Scottsdale. It was a last minute thing but he politely turn down my invite to BBQ.

Tried out Indian Garden restaurant in Goodyear at buffet hour. The food was alright and the owner I assume thought I was from Mumbai. I get this a lot. His tune changed a bit when I mentioned I’m from Karachi, dawg!

Saturday: Cleaned the house, did 2-week load of laundry and ended up shopping for the cookout. This time I out done myself, and ended up buying food for the month. Pantry is full.

Sunday: Started out making mashed potatoes. I have tried so many recipes online but this time I really got it. I usually left the skin on potatoes for better taste, and it worked! Settle plans with Scott for Vegas trip in July. We’re going to see Soundgarden. This will be my 2nd Soundgarden show, and Scott’s first since 1992.

Come to think of it, I’ve gone to Vegas twice and, because of concert. ¬†Though, last year in October, there was a wedding but I wouldn’t have gone to it if it wasn’t for Alice in Chains concert. This must change….SO…

Finally got to tweet with my frat friends Danielle and Yuliya. TWITTER rules!!! I have ponder the notion of celebrating NYE in Vegas. I hope this plan fell through…Vegas in NYE you just can’t beat!!

Also, got register for three more volunteer projects in Phoenix and Scottsdale. Really looking for it.

Monday: Okay, wanna know what I cooked? Ribs, chicken wings, Zuppa Tuscana, Corn, Chicken Curry, Chicken Biryani, Chicken Cordon Bleu and Chicken Korma. YES!! I love Chicken. It’s my favorite meat. I started out cooking at 11 am and finished around 4 pm. Sorta record for me and first time, at that. Needless to say, I had ran my washer/dryer three times.

But I’m happy how things work out. Now, I don’t have to worry about cooking for next two weeks. My fridge is packed even after three of my friends took food with them.

I missed out on Memorial Day service. Sunday night, I didn’t feel well. Plus, I don’t know much about community on the west side of the town. It takes one to know one. Oh well, there’s always next year.

I reactived my FB account only after two weeks. I had to do it since there was an invite in e-mail for happy hour gathering of Deltasigs. I’ve not been involved with the alumni chapter ever since my move to AZ. Just didn’t have time then and not sure if I’d in roughly 3 weeks or so. I did RSVP, anyway and hoping that Hillary shows up too. I might not go if she’s not there. Only Brother I really know besides Katie who I met at LEAD last year. We had only brief conversation, her being from Wisconsin. I’ll see how it goes. Don’t know if I’ll have time to be involved.

p.s. I just realized I haven’t made much entries to my journal. This must change. At this point, I am keeping this blog as it is – I’ll purchase the dot com domain sometime down the road when I’ve time.
