yes, really. this is what he got me:
so sweet. look how cute that pumpkin is!
i got him a box of specialty's cookies. they are mostly gone.
we sat down, did the math, and decided that today, 10/22, was the real day. we decided to go out to lunch. i picked an indian buffet. i was so, so wrong. i miss the indian buffets on broadway in columbia and in broad ripple in indianapolis. those were so good. this one had little variety, no napkins, bland food, but decent naan. they did not have the gulab jamun, which is my favorite indian dessert (but only if they're hot - don't even touch them if they try to serve them cold). but now we know, at least.
warm weather is back. if you stayed inside the apartment all day, you might think HOT weather was back, but you'd be mistaken. i'm noticing that i really don't feel any different off the claritin than on it. i still have to stay off it until i'm tested next monday, so there's still time for things to act up, but maybe it's not an allergy at all and instead some kind of internal sinus defect. i guess we have to wait and see.
i attempted making something with a pumpkin. i thought i had bought the right kind, but it turns out the flesh was tough, fibrous, and near impossible to cut, so it looks like i didn't really get a sugar pumpkin after all. i might try again and ask this time. i hate it when food goes to waste, but i had to throw the whole thing out.
i made tortilla soup but forgot to take pictures. maybe tomorrow. it's really quite spicy. next time i might leave out the jalapenos.
hmm, what else... i had a dentist appointment. the 2009 horoscopes are delayed yet again, no thanks to the writer. i made reservations at the hyatt in indianapolis july 3-4 for sarah's wedding. i realized i could have stayed with my family, but i wanted to be available for full wedding support, and this way, i can be up close where all the action is and take notes!
