Reason #873: Because like penguins or a good beer, I always feel better after chilling.
Especially the last few weeks, I’ve been feeling a bit down, but as soon as I walked in the door of her Munmak apartment, Andrea gave me Erkl’s Arm, a tiny cactus arm that broke off her larger cactus, dubbed Erkl, gifted to her by S.
As soon as she gave it to me, I knocked it over of course, and bringing it back to Cheongju was an adventure and a half for the poor little trooper, but we made it mostly intact! And I pledge here, to all you readers, to take good care of him and not kill him like I’ve killed all my other plants.
But the mood upping didn’t stop at Erkl’s Arm. Nope: we also made chicken pot pie from scatch and it was fucking deliciously epic.
Andrea knows how to make a boss pie crust (and I’m quite good at cutting broccoli into appropriate sized pieces if I do say so myself!)
Aaaaaaand just cuz we could, we made banana bread too and played bananagrams (because thematic). And speaking of themes, we played using only Lord of the Rings related words.
And when our weekend was winding to an end, I borrowed Skyrim and I’ve been disappearing into the world ever since. I may be behind in finally getting around to playing, but it lives up to the hype.
Ah, now, if only every day were a weekend/Andrea and I could live nearer and visit during the week…life would be so much more enjoyable.
