wolf eyes

It's going to be a better day...

Now with bullet points!

  • We're getting paid today.
  • We're going to the Utah State Fair because we'll actually have money.
  • We're going to Best Buy to pick up S1 of Veronica Mars so I can find out exactly what everyone's been talking about, since it's still on sale for $20.
  • I could actually bend over to towel off my hair this morning after I washed it. I've been faithfully taking 600mg of ibuprofen in the morning and icing my back first thing, plus icing it a couple more times a day. I don't know if that helps, but it obviously hasn't hurt. It's getting just a little better every day.
  • We're getting paid today.
  • Strawberries and Cream Diet Pepsi. ZOMG YUM.
  • Sheep on my computer screen. Cute ones, walking around, doing sheep things and getting abducted by aliens. Requested by Da Boy.
  • Hubby's going to help me with my friend_fic story. He knows more about guns than I do. It's shiny to have a resource like him around.
  • Have I mentioned we're getting paid today?

I also made an icon yesterday:

Back from the Utah State Fair...

Fun was had. The Giant Yellow Slide (A State Fair Tradition!) was slid. A silly amount of food was eaten. A giant alligator was ogled. Pigs, sheep, and goats were petted. A reptile show AND an animal show were watched. The Rock Wall was NOT climbed, because of the state of my back. Artwork was admired. And a little red leather purse with enough room for my wallet and a paperback book was purchased for $10.

The animal show had a Binturong, which I'm not sure I've ever seen in action before. It had the weirdest gait, trotting across the stage almost like it was floating. I thought it was adorable. The Hubby, not so much.

The reptile show had this cobra that seemed pretty casual about the whole thing. The guy was doing his spiel, and the whole time, it was sitting there with its head on the edge of the bucket it was in looking around. "Yeah, I'm just chillin', here, lookin' at the peeps, in my comfy bucket, stickin' out my tongue and smellin' the sweet Utah air. Mmm, kettle corn."

Then we went to Best Buy, where I purchased the last copy of VM S1 they apparently had, and after that we hied ourselves to Smith's and purchased five 2-liter bottles of Strawberries and Cream Diet Pepsi.

And now I'm on the couch in a puddle of goo, after having taken 600mg of ibuprofen and sticking an ice pack under my back. Yay.
