My glasses coverage is $200 every other year, and I can't get my lenses that cheaply unless I want Coke bottles. The refund comes in handy.

Wow, it's shorts weather today!


Siri types my posts for me.
Yah, I get an amount every year but not enough to get both contacts and glasses. I usually use that for my contacts. And I splurged this year and got the thin lenses (I have always had the coke bottle sorta lenses because I do wear contacts quite a bit). I am using my same frames (I like them and they are only 2 years old). $400 for just my lenses!!!

Dayum - I am rambling about glasses.

I have houseguests coming in 3 days and I'm frantically cleaning. Why is it that you never see how dirty your house really is until you are having company. I have filled almost an entire trashbag with pet hair. Ewwwww. I swear I vacuum on a regular basis. And why does my dog have to fling his drool all over the place? Yuck. Anyone want a very drooling basset hound and a huge white lab who sheds all over the place?

I will raise you with one smelly cocker spaniel who shakes his ear gunk all over.

Parking lot was cleared of snow.

Once again you did not move your car and therefore my parking spot did not get cleaned properly.

I'm losing patience.

Yay, you are back, so now everything is right in the world. *stalker fangirl*
Ahem, have some fortune cookies.



No really, please take them. I cannot resist picking up one after another. They are just so good! I coated them in candied ginger, black and white sesame seeds, cacao nibs, and pistachios after dipping in chocolate. The candied ginger kind of looks terrible because it doesn't stick as well, but it's really great. But then, so are the nibs. And the pistachios. And the sesame seeds. I CAN'T PICK A FAVORITE, OKAY?!
If I have leftover whites sometime, I'll make more since fortune cookies just impress people more than simply making tuiles even if they're the same thing.

I'll take that deal! Clyde also has tons of ear gunk. He gets his ears dunked every other night but it never seems to help much. And they're always wet and muddy from the combo of drool, them getting in his water bowl, and dragging them around with his nose to the ground. Silly hunting dog.

Dragging ears are horrid. Casey walks with his head down and ears dragging!!

Hah!

I can best you both with just ONE of my dogs, who wets the bed on occasion.

What's that you say? No takers?

I'm shocked. Shocked!

To the victor, goes the spoils (literally, in this case).
----------------------
So, I tried to help a friend this afternoon, which, through a series of minor disasters, turned into a friggin' expensive mess, involving her troubled nephew, a lost credit card, and the state of California's policy on hotel rooms and "methods of payment on record."

She's my BFF, and we have a lot of adventures together, such as our outing to a dump of a "furniture warehouse" today, where we went to get a new chair for one of her husband's unhappy employees. We got lost three times, and then when we found it, the place turned out to be dark, cold, smelly, and over-priced. The men there asked if we were on "spring break." Wtf?

My point is that I always have fun with her, and I don't even know if I should ask for the money to be repaid, although she'd authorized me to spend it on her nephew's behalf.

I feel bad for him, I feel bad for her, and I feel bad for me, in that "no good deed goes unpunished" way, which I really hate believing (and don't --- most of the time).

Cripes.

I should have had a drink with lunch, since I wound up with a headache, anyway.

I bought some pop tarts.

As for bad pets - one of my cats used to poop on my pillow every time I brought a new dog home. It's not that she minded the dogs (she hated cats but as long as the dogs respected her queenly position, and even the biggest of them learned to do that, she was fine with them). I think maybe she was just reminding ME of her queenly position. : )

I'm wondering how I'll adapt to sleeping alone now that DH is working 3rd shift again. At least I can watch TV in bed if I want!

We need to round this out by someone saying they bought Toaster Strudels. Mercy, I used to tear UP on those things when I was younger and I loved that it came with that little packet of frosting.

okay, the two of you just made my Heidi look like a prize pet. She does shed plenty, but no drool, and especially no ear gunk, eek!

Why am I not surprised you like this [terrible] joke?

But how does he get to shake his head at you considering his jokes belong in a 12-year-old's repertoire? Hee!

It was a head-shake and a slight grin because he appreciates the fineness of a cheesetastic joke.

And 12 years old? You're giving him WAY too much credit.
