i had like, the most laid back weekend ever. christina and i mostly like, hung hard around our apartment and knitted and watched tv and drank sodas. on saturday we met at the green line and went grocery shopping, which was pretty fun (i don't know why, but grocery shopping with christina is always like, the equivalent of going to lake tahoe for spring break with anyone else). i did cravings based shopping again (since i've been trying to work on eating disorder stuff, my brain has basically been shutting down to all the foods i like/should be eating) and ended up with:
right? i'm already sick of everything i got though.
on saturday i finished reading catching fire, the second hunger games book.
i was dissatisfied at first because there's so much re-capping of the first book, and also she adds in details that she obviously didn't think of until after she wrote the first one that will be important later- like adding in that people were related or people did stuff they didn't do. like, the book was good and pretty entertaining/exciting, but i wish she'd fleshed it out more as a series before she started writing. i also really wish there were more books where a female character is brave and strong and clever and capable ON PURPOSE. the protagonist of this book spends so much time being like, "i didn't even MEAN for that to happen !!!!! i didn't know this cool exciting thing would happen, it happened by accident @#)@)(#(@#" that it really diminishes her accomplishments. despite that !!! it's good, you should read this series.
on sunday, mouse came over so he could watch the second episode of the new series of doctor who with us. i'm not entirely sold on matt smith as the doctor yet, but i love the new stories so far. i hope they mix it up a little so moffat doesn't get totally burnt out. my only real problem with this episode is that they have a great villain
but they don't really explain where these dudes came from or why they exist or what exactly they're for. like, obviously to kill people who question stuff sometimes...? but not all the time. or whatever. mouse hung out for awhile and it was nice to see him but i felt boring because we didn't really do anything.
i guess the... big exciting news from yesterday is that after like... a billion tries, i finally got the swift zulian tiger mount !
i've seriously been trying to get this forever- basically there's a 0.7% chance it will drop off of a boss you can kill every 3 days and i've been trying to get it (though not religiously) for almost a year. it was also my 100th mount (i've had 98 for awhile and wanted to fill up the last two slots with rare mounts, though one ended up being the the least rare mount), so i got this super ugly thing as a reward !
actually, due to my commitment to talking about wow in this journal like my readers understand/care i'm going to post all of my rare mounts tomorrow. fuck you !
okay, i have to go have a long stressful day at work ! maybe you guys can see me complain about it on facebook.
