Today I played guitar hero and made asparagus

Work was a little weird today. We had a lunch meeting today that consisted of pizza and guitar hero. It was our team building event. Our chance to get together and hang out at work in a fun way. It's totally different that what we normally do, which is being together, hanging out, and generally having fun.
As you can see from the photo, my boss and co-worker rock at it. I did not. It turns out that I suck at guitar hero. Who would have guessed that a girl with no rhythm or hand eye coordination would suck at a musical video game? I think I would have enjoyed it if I wasn't at work and I was drinking. I am way more graceful and rhythmic after a few drinks.
I have spring fever. I am ready to get outside in the sun. I can't wait to get my bike tuned up and start riding again. I have started dreaming warm nights on patios, getting caught up with my friends who hibernated all winter. Luckily it's April. My spring flowers are poking through the brown grass. Spring is almost here.
Someone forgot to tell the world this, because it snowed again today. Snow is depressing in April. To get over to my snow blues, I decided to make asparagus. Asparagus is the food that reminds me most of spring. I tried a new recipe, which used olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce. It was delicious. Sometimes a little asparagus is all it takes to put back the spring in your step.

Gutair Hero at work? I would have succumed to a headache! But that is just me! :) I couldn't believe the snow yesterday, I had some very choice words for mother nature!!!! I can't wait for spring to get here either - I miss the long walks with my pups acting crazy off leash!

Kathleen stole my comment! Argh...

Don't give up on Guitar Hero. I hate to say it, but practicing totally improved my less-than-stellar performance. Next time I visit I'll bring my Rock Band and you can have even more fun singing, or playing fake drums!

PS - I love your blog

You should come over to my house and we will rock on Rock Band. It's easier and you can laugh while I sing.
