Yesterday I went to Wal-Mart twice. First was an eye appointment with the actual eye doctor, who completely reversed the substitute eye doctor's prescription. I think my eyes are gonna fall out by the time I get an actual supply of contact lenses. But at least I only had to pay $10 to get to this point, ha. Then I went to Rio Rancho and had an actually normal day: I remembered to bring all of my materials so that I could do things, and I went to City Hall and was actually able to update the database. I also talked with Peggy about the whole thing. Then I fought really terrible traffic to get home ...

Eventually I went out running, then went to Wal-Mart for shopping afterward. I'm happily surprised that I didn't collapse in the giant store because I was so dehydrated ... I found the new Modest Mouse CD there, which sort of concerns me. Also they were labelled as a "Rising Star!" or some bullshit like that, hah. Needless to say none of their other albums were there. I bought the CD anyway. I also dropped off a mystery roll of film and bought pore strips and perch fillets and black rasperry chocolate ice cream and lots of other groceries. My cashier was totally cute.

Um, today was a bit more social. I woke up about noon to a stoopy political recording calling me, then at 12.30 Jessica called to invite me to lunch. So while she waited to get the car to pick me up, I got ready and cleaned my bathroom and talked to Nathan. Finally she came over and we went to a Dairy Queen I never knew existed at Louisiana and Montgomery ... I spent $8.45 there cos I got a bacon double cheeseburger and onion rings and an iced cappuccino thingy. In retrospect that was a pile of really potent food ... but I made it through it, and we talked about what our next moves are gonna be like and what Taos and Durham will hold for us. Shall be exciting.

Later on I went to work, where I spent the first two hours training a couple of new employees, Alex and Victoria. I felt all expert for a while and they were really nice ... after they left at 7, I worked in the fitting room alone for the rest of the night, which went well. (Jill had said at the start of the shift that I was getting really good in there, to which I replied that I did really like it. Woo hoo.) I even almost got a couple to sign up for a credit card. I also talked to Amy a lot, who is really cool. And as we closed I was left to my own devices to clean the fitting rooms and bathrooms, and did a pretty good job. We finished everything by 9.55 and then I came home.

After I ate a whole bunch of stuff, I talked to Adam (sameasnothing) on AIM about Duke and it made me really excited to be going back to Durham in a month, despite the fact that I have to drive 1650 more miles to get there than he does. Alas, it shall be worth it. Now I should go to bed, but instead I'm gonna watch the lightning outside and maybe work on my giant collage.

I backed my car into a cop car the other day
Well he just drove off, sometimes life's OK.
