the rain has stopped
and now the air is drying out. time for me to start the lotion regime again. i'm such a low maintenance person that to even take the time to lotion is annoying. i mean, i don't even normally comb my hair with a brush!
ended up getting my new cellphone yesterday. no, i'm not one of those--oh, my cell phone is a year old, must be time for a new one--type person. my phone was 3.5 years old and the only reason i got rid of it was its tendency to randomly shut itself off and not give me my messages for weeks at a time. the guy who helped me was incredulous that i'd had the same phone for 3.5years. i though about trying to explain about the whole trying to avoid the coltan trade as much as possible (another link for you) but things like that are about as much use as trying to explain to a newly engaged woman why you're not ogling over her diamond ring.
anyway, i did! get to go to my favorite bookstore in the whole world, since i was over in that area. ended up buying some books (how could i resist?) even though i'm trying to be extremely budget conscious. i got the latest installment of sarah kramer's expertise with la dolce vegan! and then went home and spent sunday evening reading over the luscious sounding new recipes. ahhh...i have sooo many things to try. just when i was getting tired of making the same 10 things over and over.
this week seems like it will be a busy one. but at least saturday is my once-a-month brunch with the girls! i rarely get excited about getting together with other human beings but this is a wonderful exception.
