Quick one before bed . . .

Busy day at work. Finally started making a stab at the accumulated To Do list, then got slammed with a bunch of new files. Nothing too complicated right now, though, which is good.

Mr. Tall, Blonde and Handsome (see previous entry) sent me a text on my cell phone out of the clear blue sky. We had a fun little back and forth for a bit until I pointed out that, unlike him, I get charged for every single text message. He stopped texting after that. I'll probably have to reimburse the 'rents for that little exchange. I did call him after work and thank him for thinking about me, though.

I went to Eyedrum for some kind of poetry thing that was quite inspiring. Unfortunately, it wasn't inspiring in a "gosh, I wish I could do that" sort of way but more of a "holy crap, I can do better than that" sort of way. Then again, some of my greatest moments have sprung out of that sentiment, so maybe it's not entirely a bad thing.

I stopped by the Waffle House near my digs on the way home and tried the new chocolate chip waffle. It was actually pretty good. Basically, they just pour regular waffle batter, pull a plastic tub of chocolate chips out of the fridge and scatter them by hand. Considering how sweet Waffle House waffles are to begin with, it works quite nicely. Will probably one try again next time I'm in the mood for something warm and chocolate.

And so, to bed.

Today I took pleasure in once again hearing that cover of "Jeepster" on the Illinois Street Lounge. It made me laugh almost as much as the first time I heard it.

Today I learned that the poetry event at Eyedrum leaves an awful lot to be desired. But at least I know what it would have been like.

How are you not on a plan that has text messaging on it? I get, like, 1000 a month for something like 5 or 10 bucks.

I'm sharing a group plan with Mom, Dad, Pat and Carrie. The parentals are paying for it. I don't think it ever occurred to them to add texting to the plan, since it's not something they're in the habit of using.
