So, I (we've, because really Matt's not exempt from this statement) have been slacking on the stuff that needs to be done to finalize all our Foster Care paperwork. I don't know why, I think we just got all the stuff as the holidays hit, and classes were over, and it's been sitting around. So, I'm trying to make an effort to get through the paperwork at least somewhat quickly so we can focus on other stuff.

For instance, I made a doctor's appointment yesterday with the specific purpose of getting the doctor's note signed. Didn't realize until I was there, that part of the note meant getting a TB test. So, I got the shot, and I'll have to go back up to the doctor's office tomorrow to let him look at the injection point to make sure I'm all healthy and stuff. The good news is as long as the TB test is clean (and we're not doubting it will be) the doctor has no problem signing the forms. Overall, I'm extremely healthy - Fibro/CFS/EBV included. Blood Pressure must've been way down too, nurse didn't tell me what it was, but both she and the doctor remarked on how good it was. It's normally low-ish, it runs in my family, but the last few visits, it's been a little high, so I'm glad to know it's back where it should be.

Tuesday I signed up for the au_bigbang because I need more to do. Obvs.

Wednesday we took in Cannon and Faith for a puppy version of a weekend slumber party. Matt and I are, but the dogs are not, AMUSED.

Thursday I managed to develop a small crush on a band guy. I'm writing a review of the band's CD, but yeah, I've said too much already.

Friday night we got to play Touch of Evil - a Flying Frogs game that plays very much like Arkham Horror. It's pretty bitchy too - especially if you're fighting the Spectral Horseman. That said, I really enjoyed it, much like I enjoy Arkham Horror (one game every once in a while) and would like to own it.

Matt and I went out for a nice dinner Saturday night and I was disgusted by the horrible new marketing for traditional literature. Witness the horror: http://ow.ly/i/jaa

Sunday while watching our very shiny copy - freshly opened out of the plastic and everything - of The Middleman (which must be heard/said in the theme song voice) I started a brand new blanket knitting project. I really wanted to make a plushy thick blanket, and the one pattern I found at the purlbee had cool things, but ultimately, I wanted more than just knitting or seed stitch. So, I'm sort of mixing and matching patterns and we'll see how it turns out. I'm doubling up yarns to avoid spending $15 on super bulky yarns, but we'll see how long this stuff lasts before I can say whether that's a good idea or not.

I only wish it was a joke. I think I yelled when I came around the corner and saw the display in the store.

Ahhh I remember Smart Bitches talking about those book covers! they ran a competition to photoshop your best classic novel with a Twilighted cover. One of my favourites was one for the Bible with the Twilight apple with a bite taken out of it.

But it's one thing to hear about it, another to see photographic evidence of it @____o this is crazy.
