This girl at school? She told me that gelatin is made from ground-up cow's feet and that every time you eat Jell-O there's some cow out there limping around without any feet. But I told her that I'm sure the cow is dead before they cut its feet off, right?

Well, good news and bad news about the dogs new meds.

They won't be NEARLY as expensive as at the vet because, apparently, the vet's "dispensing fee" DOUBLES the price.

Seriously? No.

I like that this vet does the bloods while I wait so, as long as I'm in the area I'll likely keep going there. And I get that there is going to be a fee... but DOUBLE?!? Nuh uh. Not cool.

It's five thousand for kissing, ten thousand for snuggling... End of list.

Does anyone have the CI/ATK chicken stock recipe where you brown chicken pieces and bones and an onion first? I lent my book out and have needed it like 10x in the past week.

I just went to Sears to buy a fridge to replace my very old one. I intended to get one that was pretty well the same size as my compact fridge, but the shelves seemed really pokey and small. So I bought one that was bigger and more than I intended to pay. However I am getting $90 in rebates b/c I bought and energy star fridge and the local power co will pick up my old fridge and give me $35 for it. So it all evens out.

Now if your car ain't got it, go out and get it. We like the boom and don't you forget it. So turn down the treble and front your bass.

yay new fridge, yay energy savings.

mac and I slept in. him until 8, me until 10. GLORIOUS!

I cannot even think about the %$$%#$ baseball game last night. I will not listen to the game today, they have lost every game I listen to, so no more.

I slept in 'til 8 too.

It still amuses me that I think of that as sleeping in.

You would not believe the energy savings! My fridge, which is at least 20 years old says it runs on 104 KwH per MONTH, and that was when it was new and running well. The new fridge's Energuide rating is 383 KwH per YEAR. The PowerCo's energy Calculator says I'll save approx. $125 a year on power bills.

That's what I try to explain to people when they ask why I do not use the vintage pink fridge as my fridge. Dude, it is close to 50 years old with no upgraded parts.

Yay for new fridge (will it fit into your existing space?)!!

Yay for sleeping in!!!

When I get home after class and getting my hair cut and picking up some stuff at either Walmart (if I want to venture there) or more likely Walgreens (can't get everything on my list, but most of them, and can get in and out faster), I think I'm going to hang up my clothes that I washed at 6:00 am this morning and then lay down for a nap. I'm reallllly tired right now, and the large cup of coffee from McD's is only doing enough to keep me awake for a few hours. I'll be ready to snooze by 2:00.
