I was pretty kickass yesterday, though.
--Did some fucking kickass work on a blog to make it look like the website it's for and not like blogger. Oh, blogger. You kinda suck but now I have conquered you!
--Took pictures of my cat.
What you need to understand to fully appreciate these photos is that before this happened, the box of envelopes was shut, and the envelope on the floor was not on the floor. Harker OPENED THE BOX AND TOOK OUT AN ENVELOPE. Unfortunately, since I do not yet have the camera-brain-cyborg attachment, I was only able to get the immediate aftereffects.
--Maked a scarf:
Since then, I have been trying to untangle the world's worst skein of yarn EVER, doing more work, and went to see Wristcutters, mainly because quizzicalsphinx mentioned Tom Waits to me earlier today. It was pretty freaking funny.
I've seen a lot of low-key romantic comedies lately that have been pretty damn funny to boot. This weekend I saw both Dan in Real Life and Lars and the Real Girl, both of which were utterly enjoyable. There were a couple moments in Lars and the Real Girl where I literally could. not. stop. laughing.
I also saw Martian Child, which is probably at the bottom of my list out of those movies. It was expectedly schmaltzy but I like John Cusack, so whatever. I enjoyed it but I wouldn't say expect anything new from it, and the ending reminded me a little too much of Kindergarten Cop. When you're cribbing off Kindergarten Cop, you know you're having trouble. I don't know why John Cusack is making all these movies about people with dead relations and children. In 1408, it was dead children. Huh.
Sooo...I went to Burger King on the way back from the movies. This is because on the way TO the movies, I see a sign outside for "Cheesy Tots."
I think to myself, "These things, they are both cheese and tater tots, two of the world's greatest foods. But they are from Burger King. They will either be irrepressibly awful or irrepressibly delicious."
So on the way back from the movies, I buy the 6 pc. Cheesy Tots for $1.19.
(PS I am testing posting from Picasa. I've never done it before!)
They were, in actuality, quite delicious and I was pleased with the outcome. For anyone who likes potatoes, cheese, and fried things, these are possibly an essential part of a balanced diet.
Also, please to note the number of napkins they put in the bag for me to eat my SIX CHEESYTOTS:
Yes, that is eight napkins. Count: more napkins than cheesytots? Sadly the napkins were nowhere near as delicious.
