I also decided that I am going to buy a shotgun. It will be the first gun I've ever owned all by myself. I am sorting through Dennis's reams of gun information, trying to see what I'd like. I am leaning towards a 20 gauge. Hooray :)

I started immediately on The Killer Angels by Michael Shaara, which is turning out to be incredible, and I am positive that I will have it finished before it's due at the library Friday.
I got a bottle of "HRM Rex-Goliath 47 Pound Rooster Free Range? Central Coast Merlot" from World Market. We didn't open it until Monday night. It was totally corked. Yuck, it tasted just like rubbing alcohol. No amount of cooling / heating / sitting around was going to help this dead duck.
I poured the big cock down the drain. I really wanted to be one of the cool kids this month too. Too bummed for words.

We got stuck in the parking garage. Thanks, asshats, learn how to drive! (Yes, that means you, every dipshit in Missouri who didn't take driver's ed...)
But after that we went to Bartolino's South and ate dinner. We waited, the bar was overflowing, so we were basically stuck in the coat room. I didn't mind, because I was fondling some old woman's drop-dead gorgeous mink the whole time. Just before we were seated, someone came and was helped into her full-length Dior fox. Hubba hubba, what a coat! I really, really like fur on other people :)
We dressed up, but of course not in full-length Dior foxes. It was fun, and now that I think about it, it was actually our most officially "dateish" date. Yeah, I've know Dennis for 2 1/2 years, and we're finally dating. Hehe! Yeah, and the food was delish too!

I'm so not into boy bands, so I must be a metal head. Well, they make a test for that too :)
That's true, but being female has to skew the results a little bit. Except chaning my answer to, "Do you want to go to a Def Leppard concert just to see Rick Allen's stump?" to yes pushes me up to 71%. Def Leppard is NOT that kind of metal. They're a boy band of their era. The guys who wore wrestling pants and thought they looked good rocked to Def Leppard. The real metal heads wore tight jeans. I remember. Oh lord, or if you were lucky, leather pants.

I read Inherit the Wind before Jane Eyre. I believe that I had read it before at some point in my life, but I didn't remember it by title. I can't remember when that might have been tough.
I am braind dead right now because I just exercized with a little bit of a sore stomach. D'oh!

It sucks so much just finding something I'm interested in. No wonder I'm not going anywhere in life. I need to become more financially motivated. If I *really wanted* more money, I'd probably have a much easier time looking for work. LOL. Who knew I didn't even like money?
(Not that I'm rich and have everything I want. I just happen to be good at making do with what I have, and I'm not starving or freezing, so what else do I need? Everything else is extra.)

It took Dennis and I a while to figure out exactly how we wanted to mount it, then a while longer to argue over who was going to get to play with the power tools :)
Oh, then we had to "discuss" what to do with the leftover screw points that were sticking up into the cabinet.
Done. Functional. Beautiful. Hooray!

I also ordered the new U2 album at the same time to qualify for free shipping. This is the first CD I've purchased since the recording industry starting acting like a 900-pound gorilla about music downloading. I feel a little guilty about it, but I did pay less than $10 for it too. My boycott isn't over. I can't think of any other artists I like enough to buy their albums anyway. Shame on me for being so weak about free shipping though! BOGO is marketing genius!
"Thai Kitchen single serve Noodle Carts are a quick and convenient way to satisfy your craving for a Thai stir-fry style noodle style dish without having to go to a Thai restaurant. Just add boiling water or microwave, drain the water, toss with the enclosed seasonings and enjoy. These noodles cook fast - in their own tray. Ready in approximately 4 minutes. Fork included."
Yes, fork included, which makes this even better than Ramen noodles, because you've got to track down a bowl and utensils for Ramen.
Now of course this brings the tsunamis back to the front of my mind. I was just thinking about the unbelievable disruption, even to everyday processes like eating noodles. Even the relatively unaffected are affected. Sometimes the little things are just as moving as the big scary death toll numbers everyone keeps hitting us over the head with.
