that's what I am.

I am very tired and have a busy day planned tomorrow and as such am just going to go to bed. here is my abbreviated week:

went to SteveMikeBobby's for anime night. we ordered chinese from a nearby place, Beijing Chef III. it was pretty good, and we got some free food thanks to the hugeness of our order. I look forward to eating there again.

birds discovered the bird feeder on my tiny deck. I discovered $56 in my jeans pocket. Chris and I went to Friendly's. I had the Vermont White Cheddar Burger, which is very unusual for me. as a rule, I don't order burgers at restaurants because I am concerned about the preparation process. but I stepped out of my comfort zone and it was delicious.

we went to California Bar and Grill for wings. I had the Turkey Bacon & Ranch flatbread sandwich. it was awesome, as usual. afterwards, we went to SteveMikeBobby's and discussed things that are meta. it was one of the mosy enjoyable conversations I have had with those guys in a long time. like the good old days. I was sorry to leave.

laundry night at my parents house. ate real food for the first time all week. leftover roast beef in gravy, on toast. one of my favorite things in the world. we went for a ride after dinner, during which I looked for houses to buy. we didn't find anything. then we came back and ate pastries while watching Obsessed. I am glad my OCD is no longer that bad. I hope this show allows people to see that OCD is not a laughing matter, it is a serious problem.

was informed that we are changing health insurance providers at work today. I will have to run the new stuff by my mum, I am sure she will be thrilled. Chris got his car back, it looks all shiny and new. even though his insurance covered the rental car, he was still charged $15 a day for it, coming out to a total of $150. he says that the rental place said that it was for insurance on the rental, but I think that should have been covered as well. he is calling his insurance guy abut it tomorrow, I hope he gets it straightened out.

we went to several different pet stores to find crickets for the dragons. our usual place, Pet Supplies Plus, was for some reason not selling crickets today, even though they had them in stock. very strange. next we tried PetSmart, but they only had really tiny crickets and really big ones. they did, however, have two turkish angora cats. for the uninformed, that is the breed my cat, Virgo, was. he died in 1999 at the age of 21, but I have never really gotten over it. I cried a little in the store, but Chris led me away to look at the fluffy birds, which distracted me long enough to get a grip. I appreciate that he did not once become exasperated with me. at least not that I noticed, that is. we stopped off at Burger King for dinner - I got chicken fries, Chris got a TenderCrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch. we finally ended up getting the crickets at PetCo, where we were overcharged. I was irritated, but I did not cause a scene because I know Chris doesn't like it. And really, it wasn't that much. they were supposed to be $0.10 a piece. we got 25 or them. our bill was $3.18 - including tax. so they charged us $3.00 where they should have charged $2.50 - that's $0.02 extra per cricket. Chris didn't even notice until I pointed it out to him in the car. perhaps I need a hobby.

Chris asked me the other day if all I write about here are the things we eat from day to day. it seems to me that he is not off, and he doesn't even read this!

anyway, I am going to bed now. good night!
