In which I am still alone

I haven't heard from rahirah, who took the laptop for the express purpose of keeping in touch. I suppose it's possible that the hotel has no hot spot, so she hasn't been able to get on, but in these days of electronic keeping-in-touchiness, I'm just hoping she got to where she was going.

I have to do laundry and really do have to sweep/clean the front porch, since last night I discovered not one but two black widows were living out there - we rarely go outside after dark during the week, and the widows don't come out in the daylight. So sillymagpie and I went out shopping last night and I finally saw them. Managed to stomp one, and sprayed at the other, but don't know if I got it. I don't mind spiders in general, but the front porch is Too Close to possible escaping cats for the poisonous ones to live. Whenever they break the unspoken laws - do not get Too Close - I have to kill 'em.

Speaking of shopping, I spent some of my Vegas money on shoes last night. I justify this by the fact that I may have spent the same money IN Las Vegas on shoes; besides, these were a pair I'd seen before at Last Chance in a size too big. This time they were in a size Just Right, and at $20.99, they were fully 59.00 less than retail (which I've been contemplating, since I like the style and couldn't find them anywhere else), so it really was a savings of $59.00. That's my story and I'm sticking to it, anyway. There was a pair of ladies cowboy boots at the Really Expensive Shoe Store upstairs from Last Chance which fit like a dream, but I wasn't going to pay $150.00 for them, although that's really not a bad price for cowboy boots. I did say, however, that if I actually *knock wood* come home from Vegas with any money, which has happened, I would get them. We shall see.

In silly/weird fangirliness/weird writer coincidences, I found out that David Tennant's real birthday (April 18) is only two days off of Sean Patrick's fake one (April 16), so he's even an Aries, too. Is freaky.

I really should go for a workout, too. I haven't been since Wednesday.

ETA: Amusing SPAM received this morning: There bloodvessel even guitarist.

The Gram Parsons review is here. I like the way it came out. It'll be nice to be able to do reviews with this expanded format. WAY superior to the old template!

I haven't worked out since Monday, but the AC broke yesterday and I'm sweating like a pig. Does that count?

Ah! SHOES! I need a good pair. My dolls have better and more variety than I do. ::le sigh::

Fairly recently I turned into a girl. I used to have a pair of pumps for fancy occasions and two, three pairs of good cowboy boots (black and brown, with a flashy pair for going out). That was about it. Now I have SHOES. In colors. Matching colors! "And they're so CUTE." Argh.

It's a mania...

Oh, those boots! ::drool:: Why, why don't I have obscene wealth?! Now I need a place to wear the little red shoes I got yesterday. :-)

Well, it IS the Arizona desert...

Don't worry, we keep them clear of places where people and pets are. And usually off the porch, but it's been so hot keeping the porch clean has been a chore. (We broke another record today. That's three days in a row over 113 degrees... I'm so excited...)

I don't let spiders in the house. *g*
