Oh my god. OH MY GOD. Scott was sent these sample cookies today, made from what would be refrigerated doughs that we apparently have no need to carry (we've got enough already, I guess), and they are . . . let's say, unusuall good.

The cookies themselves are tiny, hardly bigger in diameter than a quarter. That's how I justified eating six of them.

We also had our latest Town Hall staff meeting today, which included lunch provided afterward. There were also these delicious sugar cookies with a lime flavoring in them that were great. I only ate half of that. That should count for something!

The meeting was great. They shared confidential information with us -- more than ever has been before to that large a group of staff before, apparently. I can't talk about it. I wouldn't call it especially major anyway. It was all good. Well, maybe except for the delay in getting that Madison Valley development going. I don't think that's specifically confidential. What it means is I won't have a new store only a mile away quite as soon as I thought. I blame the fucking NIMBYs but whatever. President Fuckwit may have us all annihilated by the time it happens anyway, who knows!

In a few minutes I'll have to go back and help clean up. Bleh. I have no desire to do that, but Lori, the Office Manager, is leaving early for her birthday and I was on the list of people she emailed asking for help cleaning up in her absence. I had no good excuse for getting out of it so I went ahead and said I would. Begrudging do-gooder, that's me.

Another quiet evening at home after work yesterday -- well, except we did go to Costco. Shobhit kept trying to finagle ways into getting himself a Social Review point. He gave up on trying to make a shopping trip count. That's not socializing, quite plainly. So he tried suggesting we go to a coffee shop, sit down for five minutes, and make that work. No! I won't allow cheating, which that would clearly be. So there!

He'll get one tonight. It's the primary reason he's joining Laney and me for Happy Hour.

We managed to bring all of our Costco haul up to the condo from the car in one trip -- pretty impressive, actually. I carried the case of cat food with two tote bags, each slung over my shoulders; Shobhit carried I think three other totes plus a bag of rice, which conveniently had handles. Another guy got into the elevator with us, looked at all our stuff and said, "Another successful Costco run, huh?" That's right.

I need to pee now. Damn it, I just peed two hours ago!
