I don't think I'm the worst cook in the world. (And don't worry, I'm not saying that you are.) But how good could I be if everything (and by "everything" I mean almost everything) I cook tastes better the second day, reheated in the microwave? Everything! (Almost.)

And to think that it was only a couple of weeks ago that I was complaining about eating too much because I didn't want leftovers. Boy, did I learn that lesson. It was drilled into me by several people who thought I was nuts for eating more than I was comfortable with, just so I wouldn't have the same meal the next day.

Now I'm doing the opposite. I ate less of the leftover chicken marsala, mushrooms and roast potatoes than I really wanted tonight, because I wanted to enjoy them all again tomorrow. Last night, the chicken was a little mealy and the mushrooms were kind of rubbery. Tonight, they were perfect, and the potatoes had the extra tang of the Worcestershire sauce I used to reheat them.

Maybe everything will be even better tomorrow night, but I don't care. If it's as good as tonight I'll be satisfied.

Tonight's sunset (not a rerun).

It's possible that I was just extra hungry tonight. I slept until eleven, then spent the afternoon studying with Suzanne for our ASL test Tuesday. Late breakfast plus no lunch equals pretty low standards for dinner. It sure seemed good at the time, though.

As a nonreligious fan of the show Joan of Arcadia (but not Touched by an Angel, in case you were wondering), I can appreciate spirituality in the arts without having to buy into the dogma (I liked that movie, too). So I really enjoyed Don't Tempt Me (known in Spanish as Sin noticias de Dios), a movie about the fight for the balance of power between Heaven and Hell (which are portrayed as business conglomerates headed by CEOs). It stars two of my favorite international actresses, Penelope Cruz and Victoria Abril, who play agents of the two sides fighting for the soul of a boxer named Manny. How the two end up on the same side is the focus of the story. Also, according to the movie, the language spoken in Heaven is French. On earth people speak Spanish, and in Hell it's English. Go figure.
