I spent half of Sunday and half of Monday at my parents’ place out in Port Moody. Before dinner on Sunday night, I hit Wal-Mart to get some things. I know I’ve campaigned against Wal-Mart before (mainly about its less than classy patrons) but one thing I could never argue against are their low, low prices. Everything is so cheap at Wal-Mart. During the week, I bought a toothbrush and some toothpaste at the drug store. I saw the same items for nearly half the price at Wal-Mart. Even though I had already bought said items earlier, I had to buy them again at Wal-Mart. It was too good to resist.
I also picked up an ironing board and broom (with dustpan!). The ironing board will allow me to do away with wrinkles in the privacy of my own apartment now. The broom is for my kitchen area and entryway which is surrounded by linoleum.
Thanksgiving dinner was pretty good. I didn’t get food poisoning from my Mom’s cooking, which is the most you can ask for. Tee-hee. Seriously though, there were enough leftovers for me to take home. After dinner, my sister took off with her boyfriend and my parents went to play mahjong. This left me with a perfect opportunity to study, which I promptly threw away by wasting most of the evening.
On Monday, I had dim sum with my parents before heading back to my apartment on campus. I immediately put my broom and dustpan to good use. I sweep the whole downstairs floor, picking up all manner of dirt and crap. All I need to do is to Swiffer it.
I also brought home Picky, my fish, from my parents’ home. I was half expecting him to be dead, but somehow he made it through the three weeks away from me. I put him on top of my bookshelf, where I hope he can find happiness and fulfillment once again. Don’t tell anyone this, but I left a whole package of frozen blood worms in one of the freezers at SJC. I’m going to try to pick it up sometime this week. Picky loves eating those.
Well, I’m going to try to be productive again. Later.
