Weekend o' fun
I had so much going on this weekend, I left work early to get in a two hour nap. And I'm about to head up to bed now.

So what did I do this weekend, you ask?


  • went to Ikea to look at the bookcases, and ran into my college roommate, who I've been trying to hook up with for the last couple weeks.

  • wandered with her and zen_raven for an hour to look at down comforters

  • bought cool fluorescent light bulbs you use to replace regular ones for a fraction of the cost

  • played Parcheesi with Heather


  • Got up at 8:45 am (ugh)

  • Returned the gazillion glass oberweis milk bottles for a grand total of $2.50

    • gazillion being 5

  • Saw a barn in flames while returning said bottles, and fire fighters hosing the building down.

    • Couldn't tell if the firemen were cute though

  • Picked my mom up, and drove downtown to get my hair done and a Christmas manicure/pedicure for mom.

    • I know it's march, but she was busy until now

    • and I chopped 4 inches off my hair

    • It's a bit shorter than I like, but it'll grow out

  • Stopped in Williams-Sonoma on the way back to the parking garage, and bought a Microplane Grater that Alton Brown says is perfect for ginger and nutmeg.

    • It also saved me $10 on the parking ticket.

  • Dropped mom off at home and appropriated her exerball.

  • Went to the Saturn dealer for an oil change

    • did you know dealers will put new license plates on?

    • The Saturn now sports the new plates that have been sitting on my stairs since July, and I didn't have to touch a tool.

    • Saturn rocks.

  • Drove by best buy, bought the new Leona Naess and John Mayer CDs

  • Then, off to Ikea to buy a bookcase and a sofa table

    • might I say that was really dang heavy, and I'm glad there were men around to help me get it into my car?

    • one of the Ikea people was even nice enough to put it in the car, and twine the trunk up nice and tight so I could get it home

    • I had to take it apart on the stairs, though, since it was too heavy to lift in one piece

    • I'm definitely coercing one of my guy friends to put it together

  • The sofa table was much easier to put together; screw the legs in, and tada!
  • You just have to love that.


  • Up again early for church

  • met up with Kat, to see her new apartment

    • which is located right near the Wheaton Williams Sonoma, so we picked up cooking class information

    • after eating lunch at Panera, of course.

  • We also stopped in at Pier One

    • Papasan chairs are $135, and they no longer make the love seats

    • this makes me sad.

  • I also spent way too much money on bath products at Bath & Body Works

    • I love their warm vanilla sugar and coconut scents. Yummah.

  • Then, finally, to Costco, where, after wandering around for 45 minutes, I finally found what I was looking for:

    • a sturdy baker's rack to hold the TV in the treadmill room, so the TV is in front of me, and at eye-height, instead of off in the corner so I have to twist my neck.

      • It too, was too heavy, so men came in handy again.

      • The juice and water were easier to find.

Whew! No wonder I was so tired today!

Deja vu with the bookcase. I, too, had to get some guy to wrestle mine into my car for me and disassembled it before lugging the bits up the stairs. You coulda called!

thank you!

when I looked at this one, it looked a bit long, but hey.

I blatantly stole the idea from cartoonist scottbateman, I'll admit. :)

I mostly use cntl-t in the win32 client, and add more ul /ul tags as needed.

but you can find the codes here: http://developer.netscape.com/docs/manuals/htmlguid/tags5.htm
