A Day in the Life – my life 8.25.10

A great Wednesday I had! Started off the day by getting Big Orange inspected for my tag renewal. This occurs every year in Memphis at a rate of $144. for the tag renewal – the inspection is free. Inside tip, 10:30am an a Wednesday is a great time to get your car inspected – only 2 cars in front of me.

Next stop was PetCo. Elvis and Cilla were getting tired of eating cereal because I was too lazy to get them dog food. Actually, they probably weren’t tired of the cereal. I think they enjoyed it, but their dog food is better for them. It’s good to change up their diet every once in a while though.

Then it was lunch at Fuel Cafe. I have been wanting to try Fuel Cafe for a while now because they have vegan dishes! They have a vegan dip plate, vegan burgers, vegan chili, vegan stir fry and others. My server Gary couldn’t have been friendlier or more accommodating. It is such a great place, like an old diner on route 66. I felt right at home.

Although it was a lot cooler than it has been, I still ate inside – in the room off of the diner part. I decided on the vegan dip plate, which today was red pepper hummus. It was fantastic – and only $7.

After my yummy lunch, I went to Studio on the Square to see Eat Pray Love, even though I haven’t finished the book yet.

Eat Pray Love

I really enjoyed Eat Pray Love. It pretty much followed the book, although it couldn’t include everything that is in the book. I love the book and really identify with Liz. Although, I’m not a writer, I aspire to be. And although I didn’t leave a husband and travel to 3 countries for a year, I did take the road less traveled. First when I moved to Memphis, leaving all of my comforts and support system as Liz did, then not working for a year and traveling around the US.

My dinner plans were cancelled, so inspired by Eat Pray Love I decided to have wine and pizza – all vegan of course. So I went to Joe’s Wines, bought some pinot grigio and put a Rosinni’s pizza in the oven.

Now I’m going to sit back with a cold glass of pinot grigio, a few slices of hot, gooey pizza and watch my shows on the dvr – and maybe do some writing later. Happy Wednesday!
