Brunch w/Lisa at Fatapples. I didn't eat eggs, and didn't get sick. I instead had an excellent cheeseburger in an effort to get more iron. And I drank orange juice with it, since vitamin C apparently helps with the absorption of iron.

Then we played Dominion and I quite shockingly won *both* games! Then we watched an episode of "Babylon 5" -- during which I did *not* fall asleep -- before just sitting and talking for a while.

I came home a bit earlier than usual and slept for an hour before Shannon's sister arrived to drop off her cat (who will be staying with us for about 9 days while she and her boyfriend, Jared, go to Hawaii) and we all trooped off to Cafe Intermezzo for some tasty sandwiches for dinner. Some browsing at Moe's (bookstore) finished off the day, and then I was exhausted! Melody and Jared headed home, since they have to be at the airport early in the morning, Shannon and I read some Harry Dresden, and now I feel ready to collapse. People people people, all day long!

Tomorrow a builder is coming to have a look at the garage (this whole project makes me grind my teeth at this point), and then Shannon and I are going to bike to Target to do some grocery shopping (assuming that I am not sick). We bought so much stuff last week at Safeway (glorying in the sale prices) that we don't need much this week -- most of what I want to buy this week is produce -- but I guess what we *do* get will be cheap.

Now I think I'll go lie down on the couch and do something brainless.

You might not want to shop at Target
Did you know that the Target CEO and his wife each gave $5,000 to Michelle Bachman's re-election campaign. She is a homophobic Jesus freak and completely insane.

Re: You might not want to shop at Target
Yeah, I'm aware of the evilness of Target. The political issues involved are very important to me, as you know, but I feel like I'm in a tight spot. Shannon and I are on a very tight budget, and the prices at Target are considerably lower. It makes a very significant difference in our lifestyle. And yet I feel like it's at the expense of other people's lifestyles. So I'm very torn about it.

Re: You might not want to shop at Target

I sympathize, but somehow you were making ends meet even at the higher prices charged by other markets, right? Still, I have the luxury of not really having to worry, at least for the time being, about grocery prices, so I'm hardly one to lecture you until I've walked in your shoes.

Besides, it's not as though Target offers low prices by passing on to consumers the savings they get by oppressing gays. The last I checked, oppressing gays was not profitable, and compared to Wal-Mart, Target treats its employees decently and gives a percentage of profits to charities, some of which we probably both support.

I'm going to do my best to avoid shopping at Target, but I rarely shopped there anyway, so it won't be much of a stretch. Hopefully they'll see the error of their ways.
