1. The mp3 version of the new MCR album is on sale on Amazon for $3.99!
2. We had a really great lunch with Erin today. It was so good to see her again. I wish she could have stayed with us for a bit, too, but at least we got to see her for a little while.
3. Today was such an awesome food day. For breakfast, I had a tuna onigiri when I ran in to Mitsuwa for a couple things while picking up the car from my grandparents. For lunch, we ate at Black Angus and I had their three-cheese garlic bread steak sandwich, which was essentially slices of steak on delicious cheesey garlic bread topped with a bit of pico de gallo. For dinner I made cumin-scented sweet potato hash
, lima beans & corn, and corn bread, and omg all of it was so awesome.
(Yes, this means on day three of my deciding to go mostly veggie, I ate two meals with meat (though the tuna onigiri has seriously like one bite of tuna in the middle), but I'm not giving it up 100%, just 99% of the time.)
4. Speaking of sweet potatoes, I had bought some the other day, but then today we were at Smart & Final and they were on sale for 49 cents a pound, so I bought a ton more. Mmm...sweet potatoes. I will definitely be making that recipe again (though I don't have another onion and I'm not going to the store again until after Thanksgiving weekend, so it will have to wait), plus I love these sweet potatoes
even without the pork roast I originally got the recipe from.
5. We stopped at Target while we had the car and since they have this new thing where using your Target card gets 5% off all purchases, we did the last of our not-Thanksgiving shopping there (we're not cooking for Thanksgiving, but for my aunt and her husband who are coming over on Friday to visit) and bought some clothes for Carla for Christmas.
6. While we were there I saw there is a new Donkey Kong Country game for the Wii
!!! I am so exited! Because Rare and Nintendo broke up, I thought there would never be another DKC and I loved those games so much! It is really tempting to get that instead of Lego Harry Potter for Christmas, argh argh argh! Decisions! I think I will still go with Lego HP, though, because I have been wanting that for longer. (Ack, going to Amazon also reminded me about Epic Mickey
, which I want, too!)
7. Oh! And when I went to Mitsuwa this morning, I was hoping to find Tegamibachi 11 (no one has been uploading chapters nor has anyone scanned the vol. so I must procure it the old fashioned way :p), as well as the final two volumes of Ppoi!, which were released simultaneously. I didn't find Tegaba (boo), but they did have both vols. of Ppoi! I love this series, but I am so glad it's over. 30 volumes is way too long for one school year. XD Especially considering it ran for nineteen years
. Gah!Daily Happysong:Pink - Whataya Want From Me?
I knew she had written this Adam Lambert song (one of my favorites), but I hadn't realised she'd recorded it, too. (Apparently it was recorded for Funhouse, but not used on the album after all.) I really like her version, too.
