Yep, I have large oval blisters on both my arches from today's excursion.

Indeed, the insoles in my shoes needed to be replaced before we went on any long walks. BUT NOT RIGHT BEFORE. I know this! Sigh. Yet I did it anyway.

I've listened to "Car Talk" on and off over the years but I had no idea that Daniel Pinkwater, a favorite of mine from when I was a teen, was a regular caller. Go figure. Anyway, today got off to a good start when I tuned into a whopping five minutes of the show on the way back from Walgreen's (blister bandaids and moleskin) just in time to hear him call in and wax poetic about his new car and its accommodation of his apparently copious physique. Hilarious.

Sometimes I think that I'm losing my memory or am literally getting early-onset Alzheimer's, because I don't remember things like my popover recipe being on e2 or that I had made a gorgonzola sauce when I first started living with C.

The reason is that in my mind, the internet is still kind of new and C. & I being a couple is still kind of recent.

BUT NO.

I've been on the internet for, uh, 13 years. (Not long compared to some of you, I know.) That's also about when I signed up for the Mercedes Lackey mailing list and Tamson House and probably AnimeMUSH and whatnot, give or take a couple years. And I started dating C. a decade ago as of this April. A DECADE.

Next year will mark a decade of living in California, too, and sometimes I still feel like I just moved here. (No wonder I can never remember my age.)

I think I'm allowed to have fuzzy or nonexistent memories of some things, yes?

D'oh.

We wound up at Half-Price Books (after eating spicy lamb with cumin, bittermelon stirfried with egg yolks, pickled long beans stirfried with ground pork, and some really amazing fried eggplant, all of which was better than it sounds, at Spicy Town). Alas, I didn't have my list of book ideas from you guys! I was VERKLEMPT. I did remember a few names, but they were out of everything. They had one of the recommended Megan Lindholm series, but it was, I dunno, number 9 or something. *tear* I wound up with Magic Bites. Hopefully it will be at least entertaining fluff. Hopefully I haven't...read it before. It's getting difficult to tell these series apart by the covers and blurbs. Sigh.

C. couldn't resist Midshipwizard Halcyon Blithe in hardback. It has a pretty cool cover, too.
