Monday, Monday

One thing about a busy Monday, it sure does go by fast! I felt like I barely got there and suddenly it wasn't just time to go home, it was two hours later. I still have a ton of stuff to get caught up on, and while things are indeed behind, it's not too bad. But it means more overtime, woot, so I do it. Not a lot changed while I was gone. Was there five minutes and already better at it than everyone who's been there (working overtime) in the eight days since I was gone. Woot, again.

I couldn't find the exact wine I was looking for (an Argentina white wine I sampled at Epcot), but the wine guy at World Market recommended one he said was probably similar, and it's good! I'm very pleased (the label is New Age, it's just labeled "white wine," no specific grape, and it's got a great, sweet taste, not as heavy as a moscato but not as dry as a Cabernet. I like it.

I have been dry-congested all day long and neglected to bring any decongestant; I got home and tried again with the Nasonex, which did diddly squat. Finally gave in to OTC Afrin and FINALLY I can breathe again. I think it's the weather, and scoff all you want, it's gonna be 35 F in Phoenix overnight tonight, and that's a freakin' BIG DEAL for us in Phoenix (it's 6 degrees tonight in Flagstaff, and 0 up at the Grand Canyon). I hope it lasts a while; there's currently a lot of snow up in the high country, which is always good news.

The Event is neither as well-written nor as well-acted as FlashForward was, so I don't know why some fans are glomming onto it like it's an adequate replacement. It's not nearly as compelling, nor as gripping, and some of the characters are starting to ANNOY THE HELL OUT OF ME.

And now for Day 89.

An okapi:



And a lesson about okapi:




I spent so much money the week prior I didn't have any left for Cyber Monday. Ah, well. I've done my duty to stimulate the economy. (And if I DO have enough money post-overtime, and can afford it, I might do a little shopping at Williams-Sonoma, where there are some useless kitchen geegaws I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT. Srsly. :-D

No Cyber Monday for me, I'm skint, too. Fortunately, I get paid on Friday.

BTW, this weekend is the Tempe Street Fair, if you want to hit the light rail to see it. I don't know if I'd buy anything, but it's always fun.

We might could, if we can get our butts out of bed.

It's supposed to be a little warmer this weekend.

I have purchased a few items for myself, I admit it...

Yes, they are interesting looking critters. I'd never seen one before.

That New Age is delish! We discovered it back around the 4th of July and num, num, nummers.

Yes, it is! I have to try some of their other varieties, but that white is NOMMY!

I'm glad things are going well at work. I know you were worried. I somewhat agree about The Event. I miss Flash Forward so much, and I still think ABC is completely INSANE to have dropped it and kept V. We all know how V's going to end, and everyone is still waiting for them to eat hampsters.

I love Okapis. My ex-boyfriend and I went to the Dallas Zoo during the winter one year. We wanted to see the okapis, but they weren't to be found. So we dubbed them "No-kapis," and now I can't see them without thinking Nokapi. I maintain that they're proof of the "Darwin's grab bag" principle of evolution - sometimes Mother Nature just decided to throw some random bits of other animals together just for the hell of it. See: platypus.

ABC pretty much dropped everything I watched there in the last few years (LOST ended, Ugly Betty ended/was canceled, Pushing Daisies was canceled, FlashForward was canceled; about all that's left is Castle).

Yep, those okapis looked like something left from the Mega Fauna period. The head is shaped so interestingly!
