international house of cookies

It got too late last night to make the brownies we planned for a splurge, so we scavenged some cookies: one chocolate chip cookie from Subway (free for them being out of two kinds of bread and without internet and thus incapable of taking credit cards, debit cards, or subway cards) (I originally typed that […]

new heights in domestic satisfaction

I decided the little bit of roast beef I had left wasn’t really enough for lunch, even if it was still good, which was a gamble. I tossed it, and went to see what there was I could finish up so I didn’t feel I was wasting things. I had the last bit of orange […]

walmart parking

The other day we got the closest legal non-handicapped parking space at the Wal-Mart. Felt for a moment like I’d won a lottery. Not a full blown multimilliondollar lottery, of course – but maybe two bucks on one of those scratch games. My life isn’t THAT pathetic.
