Yep, that's right. I'm home alone. Shhhh! Don't tell anyone! But don't worry, I'm not scared. This place is totally booby-trapped Macaulay Culkin-style.
I had the weirdest sleep Wednesday night. After planning to go to sleep early (yeah right!) Johnny and I didn't get to bed until 1 a.m. Then I woke up at 4:15 a.m. to drop off Johnny at the airport by 4:30 a.m. Who books a flight that early?! Craziness.
Now my boy is in Boston on a business trip until next Wednesday. Again, outta control. SEVEN DAYS!! :[ Ugh. That's forever! Since I'm a sentimental fool, of course I miss him already.
Wanna know what I did on my first night home alone?
I went to Target, tried on some clothes and shoes (unfortunately didn't find anything I liked), got some essentials and a lovely tangerine/melon soy candle.
Then I hunkered down for the night with the cats, a movie and a klassy dinner -- Frito boats! (with veggie chili, of course! Oh, plus some sour cream and Tillamook extra sharp cheddar cheese.)
Even though this basically looks like dog food, you know it's delicious.
Do you guys still eat Frito boats? I can't be the only one still chowing down on this kid friendly fare. Or maybe I'm five. Sadly, this is what I consider "eating in/cooking." Awesomeeee!
At Target I also picked up "Clueless" on DVD because I only owned it on VHS. Frito boats and "Clueless" -- does it get any better?
Seriously this movie is so great! I love it! I can't believe it came out in 1995 -- and that I was only 11 when it came out! What the heck, that makes me feel old! It reminds me of how I was such a goody-two-shoes I told my mom that I didn't think my little neighbor (who was 7), my sis (who was 9) and I should be allowed to watch it because it said "sex" on the cover of the VHS box. Scandalous! I'm pretty sure my neighbor's mom rented it for us anyway.
"Clueless" also has the best 90s soundtrack -- Radiohead, No Doubt, Counting Crows, The Cranberries, Supergrass, Mighty Mighty Bosstones ... There's also some random stuff by The Muffs, Cracker, Luscious Jackson and Smoking Popes. And David Bowie! And Billie Holiday!
What's one of your fav 90s movies? Oooh now I wanna watch "Reality Bites" and "Empire Records"!
But now I'm off to bed before"Old Man" Marley gets me! Gnite!
p.s. Ok, I lied. I'm kind of really scared. Cross your fingers "Old Man" Marley stays away!
p.p.s. Johnny, come home soon! xoxo
p.p.p.s. Sara McG's comment reminded me that I also fell in love with Paul Rudd in "Clueless." How was I too tired to mention that? And how has that man continued to get cuter? Love the geek-chic! Must be why I fell for my Johnny!
