So, I'm thinking (Arby's, but that's irrelevant) that after the moving, moving, moving of Tuesday, July 1, and Wednesday, July 2 -- should sufficient progress be made -- it would be exceedingly pleasant to reward ourselves and our helpers with a movie-theater showing of Hancock.  Because Will Smith is awesome, yo.  And a black, solo superhero is awesome, yo.  And character growth is awesome, yo.

During the moving, moving, moving, there shall be plenty of cold, bottled water.  Dasani, not cheap mountain spring water crap.  There will also be dye-free snacks of a healthy and unhealthy nature.

Now, I ain't rolling in money, so I may only be subsidizing Hancock rather than paying everyone's way, and there's always a chance that I'll have to default to MotoPizza.  BUT!!  The more the merrier!

It seems the diet may need to be temporarily abandoned while I keep the milk from spoiling. Turns out it is not Sons1-3 who go through three gallons of milk in a week, it's me. That, or eating at school eliminates their desire to eat cereal at all hours of the day.

The good news is, there are brownies to go with the milk I must guzzle, and I'm not going to give up all the improvements to my diet (i.e., eliminating pure sugar from my drinks). Also, Splenda is on sale at Bi-Mart, and I'm still in the market for a bread machine -- preferably a 1-pound machine. [ profile] kkinnick_blgspt is keeping an eye on the Goodwill bins for one for me, but if you know of one elsewhere that I could have for $10 or less, drop a note. I'm also seeking a simple food processor (S blade is all I'm sure I need, though a grater would also be nice -- do those go in the same machine?) in the same price range. And it wouldn't hurt me to have a new hard drive, 80 GB or better. I currently have 120 GB, but it randomly decides to park, spin up, park, spin up, then freeze.

In the meantime, Delta was 4 for a while. Today it appears to be 2. This afternoon I'm going to Costco, because I'm out of too many things that simply won't wait (cat food, soap), and I may stop by GNC as well to see if they have the ingredients I need to make nearly carb-free versions of my favorite things.

In other news, I saw Serenity for the third time last night with [ profile] butterfly & D*, courtesy of D*. Yes, it was worth it. I'd say more, but I'd hate to spoil. Besides, [ profile] butterfly is making all the insightful comments over at her journal, which I highly recommend if you've seen Serenity or if you don't care about spoilers. She's also cool like that about Star Wars, and makes extensive use of spoiler-hiding cut-tags, so if you want to read cool, thoughtful, interconnective stuff about the Republic Trilogy and the Empire Trilogy, give her a read.

In the previews was a trailer for Jarhead, a soldier movie taking place during Desert Storm. I remember seeing news-bits about that during Channel One while I was in high school. IMO, the first Bush outstrips W as a war president by orders of magnitude. I'm going to see this movie. OTOH, I am not going to see Doom, another trailer in the previews. There were other trailers, but they were unmemorable.

Hmmm. It may be that I now have a two brownie limit. I'm looking at the last one and having difficulty convincing my body that eating it is a good idea. Fortunately its response is less vigorous than its rejection of a third bite of pork sausage, but all the same, I think I'll pass. *sigh*

[ profile] jic: Do you want the last brownie?
[ profile] butterfly: Do I want the last brownie?
[ profile] jic: I asked you first.

Today, I may or may not run downtown to see Fr. John's Eldest, because I also need to visit Costco and help [ profile] jg_taz_or move. [ profile] kunzite1 is helping, too. Oh! Since I'm reverting to my previous diet today, I get to have pizza! Hmm. Maybe not such a good idea. We'll see how I feel later. I should perhaps boil some eggs, just in case.

I should quit typing now.
