Thriftwise

I'm such a cheapskate.

I bought a treadmill yesterday. At Goodwill. For seventeen dollars and fifty cents. I rock.

My brain hurts. Too much going on up in my brain.

Carl is still with us. Though he's acting a bit weird. Jumping up on tables, meowing constantly, allowing children to pet him---all very un-Carl-like behaviour. However, I'm willing to overlook such behaviour if he will only stay with us, in a healthy manner. :)

TPJ got his ants for his ant colony today. Do you know how I feel about ants? Despise. Ok, no, that's a bit strong. I have such a vivid imagination---I can feel ants crawling on me. It creeps me out.
