What a cheery evening.

usagijer and I did some mighty tromping today, running many errands. I now have a trunk full of booze (yay, Strongbow! yay, Vinergy!) and I picked up an awesome coat at Lane Bryant for $53 (yay, 70% off!). Then, we went to the awesome tattoo / piercing place that gave me the free bead to fix my cartilage piercing when I was a dork and frumpled it in February and got usagijer a spiffy new GweepNet logo tattoo. (I'm such a trend-setter!)

We then came back to 41+1, soon to be joined by delenn1122 and slarti. We even acquired dinner plans, and later ventured to Nancy Cheng's to meet up with gizmoek and zonereyrie for yummy foods. And ridiculous drinks. Really ridiculous drinks. Take my word on this. (Though, I did manage to keep a straight face when I said, "I would like a Love Potion, please.") zonereyrie was kind enough to order "Strange Flavor Chicken" so I could try it (and it was, indeed, strange).

After dinner, we came back to 41+1 (again), and watched Grave of the Fireflies. Now, delenn1122 didn't believe me when I said it was incredibly depressing, thinking that, well, really, how depressing could a cartoon be? She knows better now. :) '<delenn1122> That has got to be the most depressing movie I've ever seen. I want to go commit suicide now." But, we are watching Totoro to make up for it as we speak (erm, as i type?). I can't believe that this was billed as a double feature originally. Goodness.

Tomorrow promises to be another busy day, and I'm afraid that my batteries are winding down. I have to make it through two more days before the drive home, and then, well, the drive home. So tired. And I have to be in the office at 9AM on Friday, too. Yeesh.

Ok, on with the movie.
