Had a pretty decent week, even though didn’t have much of free time for stuff. Still managed to make a very good Iorveth sketch, made both bookmarks for the contest, am polishing up the bracelet, and have gone out with friends. The only downside is that my Wednesday tea-time with friend got postponed due to work. But that’s fine, we’ll be right back at it the next week, I hope! For now, go see their blog: Pen & Pin, new thing is coming up soon!
Since I’ve mostly Friday to tell you about, not gonna section it in bulletin, the way I normally do, let’s just instead talk about it.
We went to one of the bigger cities here, our driving friend had some errands to run there. I and another friend took off for the mall, ditching any plans of walking around, for it was freezing cold, like really, really unpleasantly cold. But it turned out to be a pretty decent call on our part, for the mall had this great candy shop, which we pretty much raided! It started with the “oh, candy canes are still up”, and ended up with us staggering towards the cash registry, hands so full we kept dropping things. Most memorable things would be: three different flavors of oreos and Harry Potter themed bottled butter beer. We do not have just different oreo flavors out here, it’s the regular ones only, so finding strawberry cheese cake, peanut butter, and mint – was an adventure. Neither is very good, to tell you the truth, and I feel like I have had enough of oreos themselves too, but hey. As for the butterbeer… Now that was awful. It was pretty much carbonized caramel, so intensely sweet that I couldn’t finish the drink. Yes, I am keeping the bottle tho.
After that we just stumbled about, there and here, toy stores, puzzle stores, book stores. There were these panda pencils, which I thought would go great with my panda bookmarks, but there were 8 of them in the package, for 4 bux, I think, and what will I ever do with 8 HB regulars? So I passed on that, altho now that I think back on it, I could’ve packed them for friends abroad as smol presents. Ah well, I’ll just paint postcards for each one instead.
As we returned home after some more shenanigans, I went back into routine. First of all, let’s talk insurance. As some of you might know, my mother’s in a lot of constant paint, and some of you are surprised why insurances don’t cover the painkillers. Simple thing: they do. Partially. They covered whole 17e. The other 68e were out of my pocket, so there’s that. And then second of all, I worked so much the whole of last month, that I don’t even understand how I made out of it. But I did make out of it. And one night, sitting there, angry at the fact that I’m so exhausted that I can’t even read at bed, something I loved to do, and always looked forwards to, I came across a tweet or something: I’d rather be tired than broke.
Well, I’m still broke, but damn me if I’m not trying. So maybe it’s for the best I am this exhausted, right? So here we are.
How was your week? Please, do tell, don’t think I’m only asking for the sake of it, I am genuinely curious.
