Today had accomplishments:

- made a doctor's appointment for ASAP (8:30 this morning)

- grocery shopped at the Weis. why did i ever go anywhere else??? i almost cried twice; once when they had my EXACT favorite microwave dinners i thought i could only get in arlington; once when they had my cereal.

- went through all my food and chucked everything dead/useless. made pico de gallo for high-fiber fajitas tomorrow. marinated steak in beer per tzel's recommendation. took out trash.

- got useful stuff at target: cat bed (he's been sleeping on the floor in the closet for no apparent reason), five dollar clearance sweater to match my knee socks, and a suction cup hook for my back scrubby. (i keep forgetting to mention my awesome new bumble and bumble shampoo and conditioner. it gives me joy every time i get in the shower.)

- declared location for book club.

- made plans to go to blacksburg on the 17th and sent email to a few people who might want to see me when i am down there. unless someone pipes up that they want to road trip to see WSC, looks like this might be a solo voyage. the show is being held at a... duplex. i emailed them.

- used the word "flummoxed" in a ticket.

- created a NationState. Check out the United Socialist States of Modestica. It's a web game. Usually I am entertained by these for a short time and then forget about them but this one seems fun! Recommended by evilhat.

TO DO: cull stuff for white elephant. find sickert art if possible to print for book club. maintenance list for tomorrow. figure out how to get a new stereo/face. call tattoo guy and let him know things are postponed. set aside appropriate amount of money for insurance payment. figure out what's left when that's gone.

Welcome to the evil thing that is nationstates.. A lot of people you know have countries in Fragitania...

Anyway, about the face plate.. I hope insurance is covering part of it, because you *can* get them replaced. A dealer can order one for you from the manufacturer, or you can probably get one directly. But because that's the part a thief usually won't get if you had it with you - they just get the base unit, manufacturers charge about 80% of the cost of the radio to replace it, on the assumption that anyone needing one is probably a thief, or dealt with one to get the rest of the radio...

My insurance will cover it. I just have to get around to calling them and telling them to add that to the claim. Thank goodness for USAA...

now I need to figure out how to make my own flag?!

Maybe I should join Fragitania...

Go to settings, and you'll see where you can change flags. Under that is a link for "make your own". It'll tell you it has to be an X by Y jpg that's no more than 6k, and let you upload it. Voila. All that's left is doing the art work :-).

Never mind I figured out the flag thing on my own. :)

Oh, yea, now you tell me :-)

b&h reminds me of not giving up but giving in!

That is the only Hefner song I've ever heard. Heh. But I like it. :)

Weis has really good prices on some things, and usually, good veggies. However, they sneak in some atrocious prices on other things (soda) so I still prefer the 'shopping around' theory.

Hee. I have a couple (wanted to see how it works) but my favorite is Cobra Island.

1. I never usually comparison shop for groceries; what matters more to me is convenience and selection. Even when I was a total college student I hardly ever bought generic. I'm bad.

2. Oh FINE so I jumped on the bandwagon late! Meh.

3. Don't knock it til you try it. But um... B&B products are pricey.

Much like many grocery stores, Weis has stupid prices on sodas and just takes turns putting Pepsi or Coke products on sale. So I wind up trying to go there only on Coke-on-sale weeks.

Maybe the stupid prices should just be lower on sodas!


But Weis is a fairytale land where I can get everything and check myself out without having to talk to a human. Some days, I really appreciate that.

You didn't set aside any time to breathe. :)

I will have to... I just read on a website that you have to let your colon "rest" when you have trouble with it. Not that anyone wants to hear about that. Ever. Heh.

Dangit!!! That would have been INCREDIBLY serendipitous. I'd love to see you. :(

You gotta love Blacksburg. I haven't been in years but I used to go all the time.
