* My first stop was at a Coffee People to get a Mexican Hot Chocolate, as Starbucks has swallowed up Coffee People so that soon I won't be able to get that particular Mexican Hot Chocolate. Get 'em while they're hot!Otherwise, I suppressed my spending-money-on-toys-and-food impulses.
* I later indulged myself with purchases of Mallrats (the one with "The version that should never have been") on DVD and, finally, my own copy of the original Meatloaf: Bat Out of Hell (with two live tracks added to add to the overdramaticness).
* I had dinner for the first time at Panda Express, the Chinese food place Dawn and her husband Patrick refer to as "Crack Panda." I understand now, Dr. Chandra...
Stayed up too late laughing at snippets of Mallrats, then crashed into sleep. Hours, uninterrupted.
To work early tomorrow: Not only do I want to start catching up after my sick day, but I want to be home in time to watch the Saints game!
