If Only I Ate Cats…
First of all, thanks to everyone who responded to the roll call – there were a lot of familiar names but there were also some new names and some surprises. It was great to hear from you all, so thanks!
Second, I’m sick. I started getting a sore throat yesterday and it got progressively worse as the night wore on, then the stuffy/runny nose kicked it, and the overall weakness and soreness and… well, I pretty much haven’t moved from the couch today. I played a little World of Warcraft and watched a lot of TV (finally finished ALF Season Four, which ended up not really being that good and actually kinda soured me on the first three seasons which I liked a lot).
But now I’m hungry. I had a bowl of cereal this morning and the only thing left in that box is the crumbs. Problem is, I have NO other food in the house. Literally. My fridge has half a gallon of milk and some condiments… and that’s it. I wish I could say it’s because I’m at the end of my grocery schedule and being sick caught me off-guard, but I can’t. This is pretty much Standard Operating Procedure around here. The only cooking I do is frozen pizzas and the occasional microwaveable meal, so I don’t tend to keep food here.
So now, even though I want to stay right here on the couch, I have to go get some food. I am not looking forward to this at all – last I remembered, it was cold outside. This should teach me to keep food on hand, but it probably won’t.
