Chickens of Peru and Drunken Gods

This past weekend was beautiful. We enjoyed 65 degree weather all weekend long. Yesterday, according to Raleigh Weather Underground, we had a high of 66.6. I saw that number and wondered what the "End Times" enthusiasts (for lack of a nicer term) would think about that. Considering the fact that today it was rainy and in the 30's, I think it is proof that the "god" of weather has been hitting Dionysus' stash. Go home, Zeus...your drunk.

So, I was driving my daughter home before heading to school when we got to talking about the boots of a woman who had just crossed the street in front of us. "What is she wearing on her legs?", asked Kaitlyn. "I think they are boots, however, it looks like she is wearing knickers with red knee socks", I replied. "I was hoping they were leg warmers and that leg warmers were coming back into style", said Kaitlyn. Yes please! I knew I wasn't the only one who secretly wished this. Kaitlyn has already tried her best to bring back the Bolo Tie and the fanny pack, with not much success.

Now I am heading to my evening Case Analysis and Reasoning class and wishing I had some leftovers from lunch. It is a 3 hour class and I am already getting a little hungry. Man...lunch was good. Today it was provided by our it was free...and free is always good. It was Peruvian style rotisserie chicken with black beans, rice, and plantains. Seems so simple and yet sooooo delicious. If you ever have the opportunity to eat at a restaurant that serves this Peruvian/Argentinian style chicken, be sure to try the yellow sauce. I do not know what it is, but sweeeeet Jesus it is good.

And now....

Traci's Daily Haiku:

Cold, rainy Tuesday

Monday was 66.6

Weather gods are drunk

<3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Would love leg warmers

Nope. They are not in style.

Neither are fanny packs.


Lunch was a winner

So simple, yet delicious

Good to the last bite.

The last time I was shopping, I saw leg warmers for sale. Everything really does come back in style!

Again, love the haiku. I might pick up and do that sort of thing again.

Plus, aren't gods drunk with power all the time?

I've never met a god who wasn't. Lol
