"I don't mind change, I just don't like to be there when it happens."

(The title was taken from an episode of "Monk.")

I had to live in the mundane today and run errands. I canceled my plans to swim with sharks because we needed groceries and cat food. :sigh: Maybe next Friday...

I did the unthinkable: I bought (prepare yourself) INSTANT COFFEE. Please. Stop cringing. With enough coffeemate it can taste a little bit less like poison. A little bit.

You see, Hub works from home. It's great because he makes coffee every morning. It's not great because he makes decaf. Since he nurses his pot o' decaf all day long, I had to choose between buying another coffee maker for my own brew, or just getting a jar of instant joe. I chose the instant. I hate shopping and can't really see the point in owning two coffee machines. Since I'm only going to drink this crap on mornings that I don't go to Dunkin' Donuts (my usual hot-spot), it won't be so bad. I hope.

In other news, we have 2 family birthdays to celebrate tomorrow: Hub's and Grenidines. Rest assured, they will get a "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" post along with pictures. Check back if you want to see a photo of the most adorable cat in the world. Hub's not too bad looking, either.

funny, i always thought Grennie was spelled with an 'a': g-r-e-n-A-d-i-n-e. hmm. guess you really do learn something new everyday, or in my case a million new things and i still don't read enough papers.

Nope, it's definitely spelled with an "I" - GrenIdine. :) Some bimbo at the vet mispelled it, but we liked that it was different so we kept it that way.

I can't stand instant. I don't use cream or sugar though... So drinking instant coffee black-- there's nothing to disguise how disgustingly bad it really tastes.

I like my regular straight up black coffee every morning at work.

I still get that urge for a nap around 3 pm every day... that's when I have my Mountain Dew. :-P MMMM

Oh. My. God. I have memories of you and Mtn. Dew in high school! :grin:
