i think it was something that i ate

so my brother got it into his head to get a "fresh" seafood mix from wal-mart. big mistake on two counts.

1. it was too much for him to eat & it tastes bad cold. so he heated it up and it was editable.

2. we're allergic to something in it. either it's the octopus, the squid or the susumi. (sa-something) it's not the shrimp, we've had that before. unless it was treated with something. *shrug*
anyway the edges of our tongues were tingling & in my case, my throat felt like it was getting sore and my lips swelled up slightly. we each had a benedryl(sp?) and lived to tell the tale.

five things #86

Five pets Teal'c thought about getting, and rejected.

a parrot, but he didn't want something that talked more than he did.

a fish, but he felt bad for them because they were trapped in a tank.

a snake was too much like his symbiote.

dogs reminded him of wolves, so they were out.

cats reminded him too much of jaffa, proud & aloof.

i might be girly, help!

i'm the tomboy type, no dresses, no make-up & the thought of dressing up makes me uneasy. but sometimes my girly side pokes her head out.

girly-me: oooo! look at this dress!
tomboy-me: we don't wear dresses. *shudder*
girly-me: it's so pretty & at least it's not pink.
tomboy-me: well that's true, but where would we wear it?
girly-me: um, halloween?
tomboy-me: maybe. would it be too weird just to wear it around the house where no one could see?
girly-me: it doesn't matter, because it's so pretty. *bats eyelashes*
tomboy-me: get away from me!

so it was a surprise to me that i wanted, a certain pair of shoes. these ones, to be exact. sears had them for like $64, shoe carnival had them for like $52, but today they were like $34. so i got them! *raises shoe box in victory*
so apparently i covet shoes some times, but apparently only "sporty" ones. next up, these converse ones. (i think)

shoe carnival is weird, they had music playing & when video killed the raido star came on the clerk come over the PA system & said; "if someone can tell me what's special about this song, you get a prize!' well i knew it was the first video played on MTV. so i told the guy & got a shoe carnival potato chip bag clip, in neon lime green. *rolls eyes*

five things #85

Five things Cassie only likes (or definitely prefers) to do with Sam.

1. shopping for clothes. her mother will list the reasons why an outfit "just doesn't work." sam will just frown or bite her lip, depending on how bad or inappropriate an outfit is.

2. doing her homework. her mother does little more than "check her work." sam would give her hints & clues on how to figure it out herself.

3. taking walks around the neighborhood. her mother will quiz her about school & that boy in math that she foolishly mentioned was cute. sam will let cassie talk about whatever is bothering her or just walk in companionable silence.

4. riding in a car. sam will let cassie pick the radio station. her mom only listens to NPR or classical.

5. going to sci-fi conventions. her mother wonders why she doesn't go see art shows or something educational. sam doesn't get why she likes certain shows or movies, but she'll happily go along for company & take pictures of cassie with people in costume.
