I'm watching Tim Gunn lose it on Project Runway ("animal wooly balls" vs "real balls" - yeah, if you don't know what I'm talking about you're probably better off).
I have dried out the sleeping bags, but the tent probably needs to at least be set out on the other side, probably better to actually set it up (oy). And I need water seal for the seams.
So the quick ( Pennsic Update )
I went to the grocery store today for milk (yay!) and more cheese (my open cheese got moldy while I was away) and will do a "real" full grocery shop tomorrow or over the weekend when the new flyer prices go into effect. (Need soda, yogurt, dinners.... but have a coupon!) I also got QUARTERS so I can do my laundry! I did a load of whites (with bleach) but needed more change to continue.
Have decided not to pursue Aflac. I've contacted them a total of 3 times now on separate occasions and apparently they can't be arsed to get back to me. Screw'em. The guy at the bank suggested I apply there. Hm.
I also need to go to Macy's
to see about the perfume spritzer (yes, the saga continues!). Short version of story: It definitely leaked while at war, the temperatures were hot enough to sort of "bake" the ester and I have visible proof that the bottle leaks. A little pointed questioning of Joel resulted in his not only remembering that he bought it at Macy's, not Sephora as previously believed, *but* that his receipt was still in the bag
in his bedroom. From 2 1/2 years ago!!!! Frightening, but not a bad thing in this case. So I am armed with the receipt now, too!
I must re-motivate to start looking for work again. I can't seem to get up the energy. I've been sleeping a lot.
And I must clean. Oy. Really, really need to clean. I currently fear that I accidentally returned the unused high-capacity black toner cartridge instead of a used one. Sigh.
I'm caught up on Project Runway, and I'm ready for tonight's new episode. I watched last week's Burn Notice
but I think I missed one in there. But USA shows it all the time. I also watched last night's new The Choir
but BBC America does not, apparently, repeat the old episodes as much as I would like, so I missed one there, too.
Way behind on White Collar
and others. Meh.
I did get an order from Amazon that I ordered with gift certificates: A Little Princess
(the good, BBC / Wonderworks TV version); Chronicles of Narnia
(ditto, the BBC / Wonderworks one), Snoopy
(replacing the CD stolen from my car about 4 years ago), Season 2 of The Closer
, and The Addams Family
- the musical. Turns out etakyma
bought the same soundtrack! Wish I'd known, but oh well.
But I am also loving Top Gear
on BBC America. OMG, these boys are SOOO funny. And they are boys. They constantly play tricks on each other. It's like if Moony, Padfoot and Prongs grew up and had a car review show. Seriously. (Jeremy is Moony, Hammond is Pads and James May is Prongs, of course.)
And Alternity? Man, it's awesome. I love that even when there are issues behind the scenes, we work them through and we're committed to helping each other remove roadblocks and at least trying to keep it fun for everyone. We don't always succeed - because let's face it some characters just are harder to play in Alternity than others - but we sure as hell try. Meanwhile, I think the measures we take do improve the game, not just for those characters but for everyone, and offer new dimensions for the readers, too.
So y'all should read it. Really.
Oh, and I found out that somehow I missed the email about the October cabaret thing that Wellesley's doing - but I got to the organizers in time. And I even talked them into a solo! So that'll be cool and rehearsals start at the end of the month. I'm sure there are other auditions to look out for, too. Back to the grind.
And back to job search. Bleah. But there's simply no alternative. I have to get a job.
