baby baby baby

Is there a baby so cute that he/she makes you want to have a baby if you didn't want to? No.
Is there a baby so cute that he/she makes other babies seem not as cute? Yes.

Went to a day of alumni weekend for undergrad for the first day ever. I know own a mug and a hat that I didn't previously own.

Tired. Been on the go a lot. I miss Kdramas.

mint green is growing on me

Why am I up this late? Doing my taxes. Running off candied ginger and a post-run high. I need to make a list of the crap I have to do tomorrow morning:
laundry
change sheets on queen bed
pick up the car seat from the rental office at 8:30
grocery shop
buy a screwdriver
pasta plus at 11:45
work
pick up E by parking in short term parking

Ick. It's all good as I do my taxes on my new $9.99 IKEA table that is worth about $10. They sure priced it right. The only reason why I couldn't make this myself is the nice paint job. None of my furniture really goes, but I am beyond caring. Couldn't resist a $12 pillow that has a treasure map print on the cover. I'm not sorry I bought it. Whenever I drive to IKEA on 495, other drivers do really stupid things, and so far I've been able to just watch and not get involved. I really hope it stays that way. I don't like the living room chairs from IKEA because they're too low. Guess I'll just stick with what I have. Next next weekend I'll go up to PA and make a TV stand / bookshelf with Mom.  Home Depot wood for the win.

1st round done!

Yes, I played hostess for my cousin, Y, and I have to say, it was a success. She's a bit finicky when it comes to what she eats, which I have no way of predicting, so that didn't go well, but the rest was fine. Also, on Saturday M(sissy)&AM came down in the afternoon for a sleepover. We did the metro, National Mall(Harry Potter puppet pals song for like 100m), Lincoln Memorial(awesome sunset pics), crappy service in a restaurant in Chinatown(Aunt L came out in my cousin's face), then back home to laugh hysterically(it got too late and laughing hysterically is what I do when I'm tired, tears rolled from my eyes and back up into my hair). In the morning we did brunch (yogurt fruit parfaits, green pepper omelets, apple strudel made by the Amish, coffee, tea with half n half), then dropped Y off at the airport and then went...

...

thrift shopping!
Coppin' it, washin' it, 'bout to go and get some compliments!

We got some good stuff - shirts, sweaters, pants, glass jars, ceramic napkin holders, belts, books, etc.

holding feeling running shopping interesting drinking

I ran for the first time since 2/2/14. Why? Well it was warm outside and I felt like it. Why didn't I run for almost 2 months? Well it was cold outside so I didn't feel like it - I hate when snot dribbles down my face and I have to run holding tissues.

Feeling kind of sick because I had pizza, wine, ice cream, and tea for dinner. I need to get control of my diet. Hopefully I can run twice a week now and I'll lose some weight. I was definitely in a plateau before. Hopefully my knees will be okay. I'll try running at work on Tuesday.

It's supposed to rain all day tomorrow but I have a grocery shopping mission. It was supposed to rain all day today and that didn't happen. Wow I am not interesting at all when I've been drinking.

3/27 won't come round again til next year

3/27. You know 27 is my favorite number, right? 3^3=27. It seems like something miraculous should happen today. I opened a wine bottle for the first time in my life. I don't know how I got this far without doing that - there was always somebody else around who wanted to open it. It wasn't as hard as everyone made it look. Simple machines - I love them. Now if I get a bottle opener, my alcohol collection will be complete.

Trying to find a car seat for an 8 month old, just to borrow for a few days, but I might have to buy it. I only have one friend with a kid around here, and she just had the baby Tuesday.

Went by the Amish market and it was closed! Say it ain't so. I love that place. I was looking forward to it the whole drive home. It's where I get my fruit. Maybe tomorrow.

SC emailed me about meeting up. I don't really see the point. I mean, if I at least felt some chemistry toward him then I wouldn't mind not being interested in the words that come out of his mouth. But I don't. And wow that was mean. But I'd rather be alone than forcing myself to be with someone. But maybe he just wants to be friends. I don't know. I mostly think he's just bored and can't meet enough girls, so he's falling back on me. Well there's a whole state full of them, dude.

My mom says she'll help me build some furniture. I'm up for that. I can't bring myself to buy the weak looking bookshelves in the crappy furniture places. And yet the quality stuff costs more than it's worth. First world problems.
