Monday: A Review

I wore a maxi-dress today (I cannot ever type that phrase without thinking "maxi-pad") because I had a meeting, so I didn't want to wear jeans, it was too hot for pants anyway, and I didn't have time to shave my legs. [Note: I didn't have time to shave my legs because I hit snooze three times, so I have NO ONE BUT MYSELF TO BLAME.] Anyway. I get to work, I'm working, and I discover that the meeting is cancelled. I then spend the entire day managing to roll my chair onto the hem of my dress, which is very disorienting. Suddenly I'd find I couldn't roll, and also my clothes felt weird, and OH LOOK I WAS ON MY DRESS AGAIN.

After work I stopped by my parents' house to pick up part of Andy's birthday present: all their old camping shit! This is directly related to my goal of enjoying camping, but even more related to the fact that I don't have much extra dough right now, and it'll make Andy happy. So now I have to figure out which of it is usable and in good shape, and how to make me not seem like the cheapest wife ever. The great thing about Andy, though, is that I could give him some socks in a size that won't fit either of us, and as long as they were cheap or free, he'll be thrilled!

Then I went to the library, where I accidentally managed to find myself in the Christian fiction section, and shit got weird quick. Have you looked at that stuff? (Also, where are the biographies now??) The covers look like housewife porn for the Amish. Bonnets were involved in more than one. I was scared to actually read the blurbs on the back of them. I also saw a woman snap, "Let's go!" at a kid who was in fact ahead of her, so that was interesting.

While I was there, I got Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which so far is interesting, but I'm only like fourteen minutes into the first CD. I listen to books on CD in the car because sometimes it helps me hate everyone less, plus I have to drive half an hour each way once a week to get our CSA share. The books help pass the time, I assure you, with the added benefit of not having to hear any commercials for car dealerships.

Andy's out golfing right now, and I'm sitting in the living room with Pancakes curled up next to me and Rooster at my feet and a headache starting. This sounds like a perfect recipe for watching Bones!

This wasn't really a review of the day as much as a summary, but let's not split hairs, shall we?

How is your day? Have you read that book? Tell me I'll like the other ten hours and forty-six minutes!
