The lowdown.

Given that the ice cream cake I had for breakfast this morning made me feel slightly ill, it was clearly a wise decision for me to eat the giant cookie I just ate. Friends, this is pretty much exactly why I find myself at my current stage in life. You know, because I tend to ignore logic completely.

Whatevs, it's cool. Eventually my stomach will settle down and I won't feel like throwing up anymore. At which point I will probably eat some candy. Or drink some vodka. What can I say? That's just how these things go.

In other news, I bought some books on the Internet yesterday. I am irrationally excited about it. Because a) I will get 3 new books to read and b) they will be mailed to me! HOLY SHIT DO I LOVE GETTING MAIL. Even if I know it is coming because I paid someone to send it to me. It is still so exciting.

Here's the thing, though. Every time I decide to order books from Amazon, I get sucked into the FREE SUPER SAVE SHIPPING bullshit. EVERY. TIME. I had intended to buy one book, but then I saw the FREE SHIPPING option and was all, "FREE? In this economy, how can I possibly say no to that?" After pondering it for awhile I thought of another book I wanted and added it to my cart. I was still short. I needed one more book.

I sat there for 10 mins trying to think of another book I wanted to read, and came up with nothing. Uh-oh! But it's cool. I harassed someone on IM (it probably really does qualify as harassment, actually) and forced them to tell me the name of a book I needed to read. I'm actually pretty excited about that particular book, because I had wanted to read it and totally forgotten. So, yay!

Once more with feeling: Yayyyyyyy!
