The first thing this morning, my caller ID read: "Incoming Call" instead of displaying a number, and after debating on whether or not to pick it up, I did.

"Mr. Martin?"

"Yes, it is," I replied.

"This is Gladys at the Coastal Federal Credit Union and..."

"You have my ATM card?" I interrupted.

"Yes, we do."



I worked from home today, and attended a lunchtime meeting at the Center for Excellence in Curricular Engagement, in which we discussed the next 7 months in terms of events planning.



I picked up my ATM card, grabbed an egg salad sandwich from Justin's Grill at Quail Corners, and then worked the rest of the afternoon from the Percolater coffee shop.



I had my third, and final, meal from Friday night's Shanghai Express Sesame Chicken dinner leftovers. I added soy sauce to it, which I didn't think would mix well with it, but after a little taste, was quite pleased with it.



I did two loads of laundry, and fell asleep reading Owen Meany while the second load dried. The dryer buzzer woke me up in less than 15 minutes, I folded some clothes, and then drove over to Crossroads Plaza.

I went to Kohl's specifically to look for a couple of black t-shirts. I don't understand how some of my "100% cotton" t-shirts feel one way, and some of them feel another way. Is 100% cotton 100% cotton, or what? They didn't have any with the feel I'm looking for.

I stopped by Target where I bought:
  • 3 California Kitchen Pizzas (Yes, they have food there, and these pizzas are $6.59 in my grocery store—here, they are $4.99 a piece.)

  • 7 Lean Cuisines

  • some Oscar Mayer deli-sliced ham

  • a tongue scraper, (2-pack, if you must know!)

  • a 10-pack of those little boxes of cereal (Why can't my cereal and my milk ever run out at the same time? It's a vicious cycle.)

  • 2 boxes of sesame seed water crackers

  • a bottle of Listerine Cool Mint (I bought some Crest mouthwash, probably close to a year ago now, after learning that alcohol in mouthwash isn't good for you. I'll tell you what isn't good for you—non-alcoholic mouthwash that ruins the taste of everything you eat or drink for the next 4 hours after you use it, so much so that you stop using it. After a year, I have a half bottle of it left, which is going in the trash tomorrow.)

  • some Tilex Fresh Shower cleaner (I wanted just a refill bottle, but the only refills they had were for some "automated" shower cleaner that hangs upside down over your shower nozzle and looks not unlike an I.V. drip bottle.)

  • a gallon of bleach (This is listed on my receipt as simply, "Target Brand." It took me a minute to remember what it was.)

  • a four-pack of Starbucks Frappuccino (the coffee-flavored one) 


I responded to some STC e-mail, and sent a link to my blog entry about our conference presentation to my co-presenters. I also had a short instant message conversation with my friend Steve Moore, with whom I haven't spoken in quite the while.



I got to bed at a decent hour, but didn't read a decent amount of Owen Meany as I was falling asleep reading—when I wasn't smiling or laughing, that is.

A small piece of trivia
Cotton fabric is given a whole bunch of different textures and "feels" by how they are produced, but are not given different names, if I'm making sense. They are all called 'cotton', but it's like calling periwinkle or teal just plain old blue.


(By the way, I went on this same specific hunt yesterday, for black cotton pants. I found three pairs for a steal).

Re: A small piece of trivia
I'm jealous! I'm guessing it was a "local" store and not some chain we have in the USA?

I'm so inept with regards to fabric, that the only way I can describe what I'm differentiating is that I don't want the kind of cotton that seems to be a little "shiny," if that makes any sense.

We may not even be looking for the same kind of cotton. :-)

It was at Sirens. Women's clothing only, unfortunately.

I do think I know what you mean by "shiny". Whenever I wear The Boy's shirts, I notice that they are much softer than my own, just because women's shirts are made to be stretchy, more often than not.

If you can, try to check out some organic cotton. It feels fantastic on the body. Here's a small list of American shops. I'm sure google can help you find one closer to your town.

I want organic cotton sheets, just because they gliddddddddddddddddddde.
