What Claire Ate: April 15th, 2015

16 Apr

You know how sometimes everything is a blur and you don’t even remember what you had for breakfast the day before? I am going through that now so thank god I take pictures, right?

It turns out that I didn’t have breakfast, and the first meal I had was pizza.

It came with this salad.

Pineapple + onions + banana peppers

Then I made some things and wrote a thing, before heading to the old place to pick up some crap that we left there.

Sean and former roommate then went for a run, and I went and picked up former roommate’s girlfriend.

Not pictured: some of her fries that I stole.

We did a little window shopping while the boys ran, with the plan of meeting them at The Beer Mongerer’s later.

That never happened. Everywhere was super packed because of the Craft Brewer Conference. So we ate dinner at a Mexican place I forget the name of and went home.

Beef and stuff.

Beef and stuff.

I then wrote some more until about midnight.

Then Sean made me a PB&J half and we watched The Day of The Doctor, which is my favorite episode ever.

Tuesday’s breakfast was a slice of ham with a slice of cheese.

Quickly followed by some toast, a glass of milk, and a banana.

After writing something (I’m assuming?), I went to go get coffee.

Here it is, mostly melted.

Later that afternoon, Sean and I went on a quick two-mile run.

Then I ate this pasta.

After consuming that, I made my self a pickletini with beet infused vodka. I drank it in the tub.

Same shenanigans, different tub.

After that I used the rest of the leftover spaghetti and scrambled it into an omelette, as one does. It was the worst looking thing I’ve ever eaten, but tasted pretty good.

It looked v v v gross.

Then I did some more unpacking stuff until Sean came home from his trail run at which point we watched Doctor Who and ate ice cream.

Until around 4 pm, the only thing in my body was a beet-infused vodka cocktail, coffee, and La Croix.

The power of three

The cocktail was very pretty.

Around 4, it occurred to me that I should eat thing, so I had snack of labneh with olive oil, olives, and turkey. Not pictured: Am-Mak crackers.

STUFF

The rest of the afternoon is spent catching up on this blog and unpacking more stuff, like my important historical documents.

V important.

I also took a bath.

Supper was a small salad and raisin bran, because we haven’t gone shopping in a while.

Then we watched Mad Men and went to sleep.

Let’s see, yesterday wasn’t very eventful.

I made eggs and toast for breakfast.

The only salt I have rn is fancy salt.

I finally broke into my Cadbury mini eggs.

And now they're gone and I'm sad.

I ate this because I’m a weirdo.

Or I'm a genius, idk.

I made pasta for dinner but the sauce was really weird. (I guess that’s what I get for not making it myself?)

Then I watched Game of Thrones and ate ice cream.IMG_3566

Sean was sick so we didn’t do much else. I guess I did some laundry at some point. Not a wildly productive day but not bad.

13 Apr

Saturday was our nine-year anniversary of “going together” which doesn’t seem possible but here we are. Nine years and we still like being around each other which is pretty amazing if you think about it.

We began the day by running to the farmer’s market, which seems like a very “not Claire” thing to do but it happened.

After picking up eggs, beets, and vodka, we hopped on a bus back home and got back to unpacking. I ate a sandwich first.

Later that afternoon, Sean went to get coffee. He brought me back some macarons, which I ate along with a blood orange.

A strange pairing

Then we headed to our local cheap PDX theater to see Invasion of the Body Snatchers. I got popcorn and soda.

Hey it's my favorite mistake, Diet Coke!

After the movie, we went out for cocktails. After a couple of drinks, we made friends with a very nice man named “Shane” who bought me a Hendrick’s and soda.

Then we walked back home and I guess I stopped to take a pic of this sad toy.

And that’s it.

I was a little hungover when I first woke up, so I walked to the nearest bakery and got a water and an americano. (In addition to dehydration, I also woke up to a huge bruise on my butt from falling while jumping the barricade at the show the night before.)

Both were helpful.

Both were helpful.

I spent the day unpacking and organizing my kitchen, pausing to got get lunch at The Conservatory. I had a salad and a cocktail bc I apparently can’t sit at a bar without throwing ethanol down my throat.

Then it was just more unpacking until we went grocery shopping. We kept it very simple and got stuff for sandwiches and some frozen waffle fries.

We ate those while watching Broadchurch.

Oh. We also had ice cream.

What Claire Ate: April 9th, 2015

April 9th was a good day. For starters, it was Belle & Sebastian Day, which is basically like Christmas at the Lower house, only with more Scottish people.

Angie didn't GAF but the humans were excited.

The first thing I ate was a bagel sandwich.

Shortly after I had consumed my brunch, we headed downtown suuuuuper early to scope out the line (or lack there of) and grab some drinks beforehand.

No one was waiting yet but this poster was hanging out.

We went to Bailey’s to grab a beer.

Tart.

Tart.

It was pretty good, but made me congested almost immediately, forcing me to finally admit to myself that I’m probably allergic to beer. This was a pretty tragic realization, so I soothed my soul with a margarita (which did not make me congested).

Sean had a beer though, because they don’t affect his ability to breathe.

We also had some flautas.

Then a very nice woman asked me if I was me and told me she liked my writing. This was the first time I’d ever been “recognized” and it was a delightful experience and I hope she enjoyed talking to me as much as I enjoyed talking to her.

After we finished our drinks and flautas, we checked the line again to see if anyone had started lining up. They had not, so we went to find another drink.

A little Van Winkle bourbon.

After that, we went back to the Roseland and took our place in the very short line. It’s a good thing we got there when we did though, because it didn’t stay short for long. We weren’t first in, but we got a really great spot anyway and I ended up dancing on stage during “Boy with the Arab Strap” and “Legal Man.”

That's me on the right.

That’s me on the right.

My friend assured me that I didn’t look completely ridiculous, only elated in a slightly creepy way.

After the show, we engaged in some light stalking, hanging out behind the venue until Stuart Murdoch came out to sign things.

The face of no chill.

I barely kept it together, but he was very nice and talked to us for quite a well.

After all of that excitement, there was nothing left to do but have another drink. I don’t remember where we went, but they made an excellent martini.

And that was the end of a very nice day.
