Last night I went to the poker game. I never play, but usually someone brings chips, and as long as I don’t buy them I really can’t be help morally responsible for weakening and eating them, can I? After all, I did my part. There were chips, but more dangerously, there were Clodhoppers. I actually have always thought these were popcorn, so imagine my delight (and dismay!) when I discovered they were little graham cookies, covered in whatever that stuff they’re covered in is. Scrumptious! Then Husband and I ordered a pizza, and then I snacked on pretzels… it was a disaster.
Nonetheless, it was quite pleasant to see the poker gang. Esan and I have made a plan to go watch the football game this evening, which I am quite looking forward to. And we have tentative dinner plans with another of our friends, who we don’t see much but came out to the game last night. In general, it was a good night. The only down side came when, as we leaft Esan’s, we discovered that Joe and Mel’s car had been side swiped by some woman in a stolen car. Luckily the police were right there still, with the woman in cuffs and everything. The car wasn’t too badly damaged, and luckily there is now an official police record of the damage, which I imagine will ensure they don’t have to pay for repairs themselves.
And this morning I got to sleep in after a weekend of early rising for classes. Now I’m going to watch Law and Order and clean my damn bathrooms, which are unholy.
