one hot saturday night

the saintly saint and i are winers and diners. we got to know each other over many a red wine, many a delicate plate of savory and sweet, and many a penny we never really had. we courted in restaurants and still would almost always prefer to go out and sip beaujolais, dip our sweet potatoes into an creamy aioli sauce, and savor truffle infused espresso mouse than stay at home and cook, clean, and drink our cheap wine.

but i have been fastidiously crunching numbers for our 2009 budget and i am determined to work on saving this year for a couple of trips we have planned which will hopefully include an anniversary soire in Mexico.

soooooo, in the spirit of savings, joelio and i decided to spend this last saturday night at home, snuggled and cuddled in our little cave with belgian beer, homemade mac & cheese, and our books.


that's right.
i spend the night with my books.
(well, we also invited The Smiths and The Alan Parsons Project to join us...)

we decided to remove all of joel's 391 books from their happy home, organize them by subject, enter and subject tag them all into his digital library at google.books.com, and finally, put them into reshelving order by date of publication so that he can look at all of his theology, church history, and philosophy in historical order.

the 4 hours flew by, and it was a fascinating experience and one we both enjoyed thoroughly. it gave us both a happy taste of what it would be like to own our bookstore and work together someday.

so maybe we didn't wine and dine.
but our saturday night was still
hot
hot
hot
