Okay, so I got Pearl Tea tonight despite my pledge to concentrate on needs. I rationalize (ah, the great equalizer) this by thinking of it as quality time spent with friends. Being thankful for those you love and what you have- vibe. Of course, my nice boyfriend was in hiding and the evil one kept on muttering things about "yarn sale", "freecia's yarn collection", "calling a kettle an kettle", and such. Then he tickled me unmercifully even after I explained the hierarchy of our relationship very clearly (I have all the rights. he has none. "we are not aiming for equality, remember? I am superior"). GRRR. I think he was trying to gain back some ground but he still carried two bags of books to my car. Hm. So he might be somewhat disinclined to be a complete poopie-head (as Char would say) or be "useless!!" (in a scathing voice also as Char would say) even when I'm going GRRR.
For that I give you...
No, I don't have a cat. I googled google image with "kitty" and this is what it came up with on the first page. I would not do this to my cat if I had one. My dog did once look like a golfball but that was my mother's fault. As was the wasabi incident.
Time to go to bed now. Happy stormy days ahead. Still have another class tomorrow evening and need to run some books to the used book store in ahhh 7 hours.
And yes, I do wish I were at CES. Yes, I do enjoy Las Vegas. No, my Dad wished he had more "good food" in Vegas which he announced after he finished a large Sake at dinner today. He was an old grump. Not one week earlier did he say "Yes, this was a pretty good vacation."
