"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.
