Buying Mexican food in lederhosen and our latest vacation activities in brief.

I forgot to mention in my last post that while we were in the food court at Colorado Mills, I saw a man in lederhosen buying a meal at Qdoba. I was confused by his attire until my sister informed me there was a German nut roaster elsewhere in the mall. A quick Google search turned up its name: the Bavarian Roasted Nut Company. Hee.

Since my last post, Laurel got over her stomach bug, got mad that her new camera does not have an LCD preview screen, and received a lot of new clothes, toys and a Tattered Cover gift card for Christmas. I started coming down with a cold (most of my family recently or currently have colds), laid out a 40-page event program for my sister, and really, really missed vogonpoet.

Laurel watching skaters on the rink. We went down to Cherry Creek today to use our collective Tattered Cover gift cards, hit Kazoo & Company where Laurel got a bunch of neat small toys and I acquired a "beep beep car" (the car pictured in my travel icon), had lunch at Panera and watched people skating on the ice rink, then wandered into the mall to see the Narnia movie exhibit.

In the evening, I saw saarlander and his lovely wife for the first time in *cough* a few years. We really should see each other more often now that we live on the same continent again. (:

We haven't made firm plans for tomorrow yet, but I hope Evergreen Lake is open so we can take Laurel skating and we have tentative plans to see Laurel's Grandma Betty (Himself's mother) late Tuesday or early Wednesday.

I talked to Biko a few times when Vogon and I were on the phone today and probably sounded quite silly talking cat, but she mowed back at me. It's kind of odd to be more homesick for a place I've lived just shy of two years than for my parents' home in Evergreen where I lived (non-continuously) for roughly ten years, but Vogon's right that my home isn't there anymore. I'll have to return when it's warmer to get all the stuff I have stored here dealt with and off to the appropriate places.

  • Laurel home, rent assistance, hope it's the bottom.

    Laurel is home for the week before school starts, which so far means she wants to watch TV (I canceled our cable last billing cycle but it's still…
