Blaaaargh. When I finally got up and showered at around noon-thirty today I had delusions of grandeur about what I would accomplish. What I actually accomplished turned out to be moving my laptop out of my bedroom and into my living room and staying planted in that exact spot all day.

I live a mere three or four blocks from a Walgreens, and I felt chastised for under appreciating my proximity.

It brings me back to my childhood and early teens, the days before we had a Walgreens, when the Rite Aid was still Payless, and I would enter with a couple of twenties in babysitting money and a vague notion of certain items I needed and emerge without any twenties but plenty of Bonne Bell products, candles, nail polish (usually with some kind of glitter in it) and probably some candy.

In unrelated news, I want one of these:
