So, earlier today, [livejournal.com profile] fuzzpsych and I went to Bo-De Foods to stock up on a few things. If you've never been, you should go at least once, as it's quite the experience. :)

Bo-De is the land of cheap crap. Most of this cheap crap comes from Dare seconds of the "Thrift" label. Which means that instead of paying $3.29 for a package of Breton crackers, you're only paying 50ยข for what amounts to packaging that might be less than perfect or a few extra broken crackers.

And for less than $16 (including all relevant taxes), we walked out with 6 packages of Simple Pleasures cookies, 2 of Breton crackers, a pack of fig newtons, pfeffernuesse, 10 squares of roman nougat, 6 bags of assorted candy and 12 packs of toaster pastries (with 2 in each).

Walking out, it felt a little like this commercial. But if you ever need cookies or crackers for a crowd (they even have boxes of 12-24 packs for $6!), that's definitely the place to go. :D

I'm so sleepy right now. There's still housework left to do yet today and neither of us wants to do anything ([livejournal.com profile] fuzzpsych is napping on the couch while I type this) about it.

The weekend, though, has been good. Very social, though, and it looks like this is a trend that will probably carry on through to Christmas. Not that I mind seeing my friends, but after a while, I like spending entire days with my significant other without having to go anywhere.

Friday night was [livejournal.com profile] lovecraftienne's Muffing Day party. Much fun, conversation and lechery were had by all who attended. I drank some Black Bush scotch neat...[livejournal.com profile] fuzzpsych's jaw hit the floor on that one. :) It was good alkeyhall and I likes it, but it might have been a bit smoother with some ice.

Yesterday was not one, but two separate gatherings in Woodstock of all places. My brother-in-law invited us and a gaggle of cousins over for burgers and such. I should have brought something, but I didn't think of it until too late. Oops. It was okay, but I don't really know the cousins because I've only met them all of three times. Some of them are only 5 years younger than me, but we have nothing in common, especially since I'm not much of a drinker and I don't like beer as a rule. For part of it, I felt very alone and out of my element. Add to that some body issues (two of them have had kids and you'd never know...all of the women there were unbelievably skinny) and I was very tempted to haul off somewhere else and read. I wasn't excluded, by any stretch, but I felt like a fat lump with nothing to offer.

We left just before 8 and went across town for tea and mildly inappropriate conversation with Jocasta, a friend [livejournal.com profile] robigus and I met in senior greek. I needed the contrast, I think. And it was nice to have someone who got my references without having to explain them. I must go back again soon, next time with [livejournal.com profile] robigus, so we can cackle like a trio of witches over something only considered moderately amusing by someone else.

Today has been very relaxing. Breakfast at Ethel's, followed by a long and winding route home. It's a gorgeous day and it was a good walk back. We stopped at a brand new dollar store (Dollar Fusion, corner of King N and Young) along the way. It's pretty darned good. We picked up a few things we needed as we poked around. I noticed that they had canvas bracelets in a punk style (metal studs and snaps). They didn't fit, sadly, but if you're looking for that sort of thing and don't want (p)leather, you can go there. We even walked past a house and had quick look around the property. It only made us want it more. Now if only we had money.

As much as we wanted to go, we decided against going to the Buskerfest Adult Show last night. We feared the heavens would open up and dump copious amounts of water onto our unsuspecting heads soaking us to the skin. So we watched a movie instead.

About what would have been the halfway point of the Adult Show, it started to piss rain. With yesterday raining on and off, we weren't even sure there was going to be an Adult Show, but if there was, everyone got soaked...except us, who had the foresight to stay home. :)
