Rock Lobstah

In one of my recent weekend recap posts, I wrote about my company picnic and mentioned that I walked out of there with six lobsters in tow.

Every time lobsters are mentioned, I think of the B52’s song.  Then I sing “Rock Lobstah” for the rest of the day.  I used this once in a workout playlist for class, and got weird looks.  I just think it’s the funniest song.

Anyways, every year at my company’s annual picnic, each employee and their guest to the picnic is given two lobster tickets.  One ticket can be used to get a free lobster before 2pm.  After 2pm, if there are enough lobsters left, people are allowed to use their second lobster ticket to grab another free lobster.  This year, they were trying to give them away at the end, so that’s how I scored the six (three for me, three for Tim).

I think the record for lobsters taken home is what, 15?  Wags?  (I stole this picture from you).

While we still haven’t beat Wags’ individual record, Tim and I combined our six lobbies with Cate & Joe’s six, and used the meat from the 12 lobsters to make a ginormous lobster salad to enjoy after the picnic.

That lobster salad then turned into lobster rolls, which in my opinion are just such a perfect summer meal!  Don’t you think?

Do you like lobster?  What’s your favorite way to eat it?

Overdue

It’s Thursday, which means it’s almost the weekend.  This also means I’m super overdue in posting my pictures from last weekend.

It wouldn’t be very nice of me to exclude the girl’s night that my friend Shannon hosted at her new apartment last Friday.

I’d feel bad if I didn’t showcase her fun platters of food she had ready for us.

I’d also feel pretty terrible about not mentioning how yummy Tracy’s salsa dip was.

And although it may seem selfish, I really should show off my caprese salad.  Because I think it’s just the bomb-dot-com.

I also wouldn’t be a very appreciative employee for not saying thank you, company, for having such a wonderful annual picnic yet again on Saturday.  Complete with carnival rides, massive amounts of food, a free beer tent, and more… how couldn’t I post about it?

Oh, and the lobsters.  I walked out with 6 of them.  It would be REALLY rude of me to not brag about say how much I am thankful for those.

And what an awful girlfriend I’d be to not mention that Tim made lobster rolls for dinner after the picnic.  Yummy, delicious lobster rolls… with the perfect amount of onion.  Thank you, my culinary boyfriend.

Oh, and Joan!  Hi, Joanio.

My friend Joan got married this weekend.  What kind of former Providence College Dance Company president would I be to not give a blog shout out to Joan on her wedding day?

What kind of friend would I be to not mention how beautiful every single detail of the wedding was?

And to also talk about how much freaking fun I had seeing my PCDC loves?!

All of the above would be PRETTY brutal, huh?

Better late than never.

Share something overdue with me!
