So I went out for lunch with the other girls, and had an extremely satisfying roast beef sandwich on an everything bagel. Then I went to the visitor's center to investigate intercity bus fares. They're manageable. Then I did some window-shopping (and some real shopping- I got two t-shirts that were on 50% clearance. Nothing special, just a way to extend the time between necessary laundry sessions.) I once again saw the present that I would buy for Allison if I was not dirt-poor. Alas, I am dirt poor, so no $50 Eomer messenger bag for you, Allison. Sorry. If it makes you feel better, I can't have the one with Eomer, Eowyn and Theoden, either. They sound weird, and I guess they are weird, but they're also cool.
Things I admitted today that earned me funny reactions from people I barely know:
- If the Order of the Phoenix release date had not been a weekend, I would have arranged to take off work to read.
- I went to a concert to see Survivor, Kansas, and Styx. (The response was "You've seen Survivor live?)
I think there was another one, but I can't remember it now. I also played a game with the little ones in which I was the motherbird and Johannesbird brought me worms to eat. And then he brought me a tiger to eat! The tiger was represented by an area rug. Children are odd.
