Clever plans foiled

Well, my Clever Plan to avoid the incoming weather system by showing up at Joe the Trader's and the Cheez Borg when they opened has been foiled by the weather itself.

I shall still go out - as I am out of Qat Fud, and down to two eggs, both of which are Food Crises in this household - but I shall have to be prepared, that is all.

The temp possibility that I was excited about Friday night appears to be something that I may have already been presented for. BOO HISS. Lose-lose. I will check with the agent today. I have to admit that I am concerned that if something I don't already have in the pipeline doesn't pop, it might be a while.

And someone has been taking my bucket (my food scraps bin). I am annoyed by this, as it took the idiots at the city an entire month to replace a stolen garbage can even though I am half a block from the city yard. (THIS sort of thing is why I get peeved at the City Council for playing around with foreign policy, dammit.)

My Less Snark Lent seems to be going well as far as LJ and the Ship are concerned, but I am utterly defeated by the usernetz. I caught myself responding to a post in AUK today - managed to save before sending ;). My snark beacon seems to be homing in elsewhere, although one of these incidents has helped me move through some recent business, which is a Very Good Thing.

OTOH, I did get a pedicure (with accompanying back massage courtesy of the Wonder Chair) yesterday when it was still dry. Feet are much happier than they've been for a while.

And last week (when I wasn't feeling like I was bombing interviews) really had some wonderful things going on in the mental housecleaning department, which is All Good.

Pedicure Wonder Chair!
This is a weakness of mine as well.
Ping me next time, we'll read trashy magazines together.

Kewl. Next time will be as close to Maundy Thursday as I can manage. Even if (God willing) I am employed I will really try to get at least Thursday and Friday off.

(Thursday is a busy day for us Altar Guild elves, as we have to haul everything out in order to have it put back in again. I also usually end up copying and folding bulletins. Bulletin folding is one of my mini-superpowers.)

I am all caught up on Brit Brit and the latest fab-and-fug celebrity outfits, even though I brought an Economist and my EFM reading with me. ;)

When I am out of Qat Fud there is no point in me going home. If I forget I will have to go to the little grocery near my house and they charge about a dollar for a little can...

I was at Trader Joe's on Super Bowl Sunday in the afternoon because I was out. (Bad planning, no biscuit.)

I thought I had timed it so people actually watching the game would not be there but there were a lot of procrastinators. Plus the power had been knocked out at another local store so shoppers had been sent over there.

I at least now have the supply of crunchies replenished ;).

Less snark? It is to die. :-)

Where do you get your pedicures? Do you like them? Are they dear? (I've never had one and am considering it.)

Nail Image on University between Milvia and Shattuck, across the street from the old UC Theatre. (Do not, I am told, go to the nail place on the south side of University.)

Prices seem to be very good for the area.
