exciting things

a) I got a new, reusable cup (with lid and handle!) from QuikTrip last week for $3.99. I’m sure it will end up paying for itself within a couple of weeks (refills are, like, $0.11 cheaper)! exciting.

(fyi…I work veryveryclose to QT. I go there almost every day. Some days I go more than once. Last week when I bought my new cup, the cashiers were like, “Whoa, big step for you!! New cup!!” …we’re friends.)

I have recently become addicted to “Rooster Booster,” the energy drink that comes from the fountain at QT. I’ve never liked energy drinks; I think they generally taste like vitamins. But this one…I can’t describe it…it’s just so tart, and bubbly, and makes me feel good in the mornings. They even have a diet version, so my little “cocktail” includes ice (cubed, not crushed, about a third of the cup), half regular Rooster Booster, and half Diet Rooster Booster. I CAN’T STOP

Since we’re talking about QT, I guess I should inform you that they are giving away FREE DONUTS this morning at the one over here. I hear that they’re giving away free sandwiches later. excellent!!

I am turning into a handygirl!

Since we moved into our new place, I have:

  • re-hung the porch swing on new hooks (after the previous hook broke while my friends were sitting on it…sorry friends..)
  • tightened the screws on our bathroom door
  • attempted to hang a cabinet in the bathroom (attempted…the landlord had to come fix it for us)

…that’s it so far. But I’m feeling very empowered! Maybe I should ask for some power tools for Christmas…
