Also, my cold is finally starting to go away. I've been pretty hopped up on cold meds for the last three days, I finally ran out around noon, and while I went to Target after class today, guess what the one thing I forgot to get was. Oh, well. At least I remembered to buy another box of Puffs Plus, since I've pretty successfully plowed through my big box in the last day or so, and left my little one at my friend's place on Sunday. Oops.
I also went on this crazy baking spree tonight (don't worry, it was completely sanitary). I was just going to whip together these chocolate-filled croissants super quick for a birthday thing at work tomorrow... then I got into it and was like, hey, I should make cookies, while I'm at it... So I whipped up a batch of pumpkin spice cookies also. Which is kind of why I'm still up. Because I had to wait for things to finish and cool and all that. I also caught my cat trying to lick out of my salad bowl earlier, so I completely distrust her around people food now. She's pretty good about not ever jumping on the table unless I leave the chairs pulled out though, so that's a plus. But yeah. My half-hour project (seriously, the croissants are like embarrassingly easy) turned into three hours of SHEER BAKING MADNESS. Or, something. Also: I love my Pampered Chef baking stones. GLORIOUS for making cookies and other such pastry-like items. *drool*
Another significant moment for today was that I went to Target and bought all sorts of essentials, then went and bought all sorts of groceries (I can have REAL FOOD! For more than one meal!)... and I didn't have to worry about draining/overdrawing my bank account. It's actually quite sad, really. The only reason I could swing this was because I got my tax refund last week. I'm stretched way too thin. I really, really, really need to find a subleaser so I can move into that cheaper apartment. Then I could buy groceries all the time! Heh.
Lastly - our retro "prom" is this Saturday and I bought some Madonna gloves today. And some leggings. With lace at the bottom. I am so fucking excited. Expect pictures.
