Today I did a bunch of my holiday shopping. Had AWESOME tacos from a taco truck. Went, for the first time, to the big international market, which was pretty ghetto (esp. compared to Uwajimaya), but I now have udon noodles, potstickers, humbow, many asian soup bases, pocky, horchata, and rice crackers (the good kind). After all the good shopping I had drinks and delicious dinner with Ladybug and Citizen Twang.
Today was a very good day.
Now I am watching episodes of Life. On my big, nifty TV.
Also it is Saturday night and I am not at work.
Seriously, I need to remember that life, although rough, cold, and sometimes painful, is also good and wonderful and full of tiny joys and they count the most.
Oh! And Citizen Twang and Ladybug helped me pick out new glasses today. Pictures as soon as they come back.

Yes nothing compares to Uwajimaya. I am so going there first thing when I am in Seattle!
The best thing about world market was the Asian lady in line ahead of us who looked into our basket, laughed and asked if we really liked those things. We assured her we did but she didn’t seem to believe is. The weird part is, all that was visible was like udon, potstickers and pocky. Not exactly strange choices for westerners, she couldn’t even see my more exotic choices on the bottom of the basket.
I wonder if pickled raddish is good for breakfast? I’m feeling lazy.
