I went to bed at 10 last night, but woke up at 2 and couldn't fall back asleep. Then I spent 5 hours caulking the main windows in the house to try and improve heat retention.  We also put plastic sealed with duct tape on the screens of the windows that are missing storm windows. 

Also I felt weird walking into the hardware store and saying, " I need some caulk."

What a pleasant morning. Mark and I cuddled. Then Seale, Mark, and I cuddled. Then we had eggs and toast and watched last night's Daily Show.  Mmm cuddling.

» Domo / Ami
I watched Tampopo last night and talked to Rachel today about noodles.  So Dave and I went to Domo now called Ami for noodles.  We had the yaki soba and it was bad.  Like seriously.  The sauce was too sweet and thick, the noodles were oily, and mine came with overcooked shrimp.  Yuck yuck yuck.
» being a girl
You know there are some obvious reasons why being a girl sucks sometimes.  Periods, birth control, lesser pay scales etc. 

But the latest one is of course bachelor parties!  Jack is having a bachelor party in Chicago, and Nina is having a bridal luncheon in Indy.  I love Nina and all, but come on!  Which one of those sounds cooler?  Nina and I are gonna hang out afterward which will be nice.  But I wanna get drunk and rowdy in Chicago :(.

In 1998 the company that makes Pyrex sold its consumer products division.  Instead of the thermal shock resistant borosilicate glass, Pyrex is now made with tempered soda lime glass. 

I was pouring hot butter into my measuring cup, and it exploded.  Isn't it exciting when a product that is produced under a brand name for years changes its production method to something cheaper that is less safe?  Tomorrow I'm tracking down an actual borosilicate glass measuring cup.
» Duel
Last night my boyfriend totally defended my honor.

Tim (my boss) called me a slut last week, even though he's slept with twice as many boys.  I told Mark he should beat Tim up.  Mark declined because he didn't want to commit a hate crime.  So then I suggested they make D&D characters instead and have a duel.  Last night they met on the field of battle.  Tim's half-elf sorcerer dished out quite a bit of damage, but Mark's dwarf ranger withstood it and emerged triumphant.  

Also Tim took me out to dinner at Le Petit Cafe last night.  Sooooo good.

The first five people to respond to this post will get something made by me! My choice. For you.

This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:
- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make!
- What I create will be just for you.
- It'll be done this year.
- You have no clue what it's going to be. It may be a story. It may be poetry. I may draw or paint something. I may bake you something and mail it to you. Who knows? Not you, that's for sure!
- I reserve the right to do something extremely strange.

The catch? Oh, the catch is that you have to put this in your journal as well. We all can make stuff!
