Baby Ade!

(no subject)

Wow, my body really is adjusting to this new schedule thing. Here I was, lying in bed for hours, thinking I was going to roll out of bed at like noon, and it's only 9 am.

So, I just had a rather interesting dream (yes, ANOTHER dream) where I had adopted a baby. It was a boy with light brown skin who cried a lot (probably because I was the one taking care of him, and I'm definitely not a baby person - the most I can do is hold one without dropping it). For some reason, it wasn't wearing clothes either. Wow, I'm referring to a baby as "it." I definitely shouldn't be allowed anywhere near babies.

Things the dream taught me:
a) You do not keep a baby the way you keep your rats. A littered cage on another floor of the house is not suitable. Not only will the baby get cold, it will also get dirty.
b) If you're going to give a baby a bath, do not treat it like you would treat a vegetable. You can't just rinse it and wipe off the dirt. (at this point in the dream, the baby had shrunk to the size of my hand, so it was easier to wash)
c) Don't leave the baby in the sink with the water running while you go get some paper towels to dry it off.
d) When you come back and find a drowned baby, do not drop it down the drain.
e) You're a horrible person if you even THINK of running the garbage disposal, even if by that point you're aware it's a dream and think it would be funny.

Moral of the dream is, Ade should never try to raise a baby. But we all knew that already, and I wasn't planning on it. I don't even really want to deal with children until they're potty trained and can talk semi-coherently. And at that point, I become the piggy back ride queen. Kids are awesome, but I don't think I should be allowed to raise them. I'd make a great aunt or grandmother though, and my little cousins seem to like me.

I hope Giant Eagle isn't TOO crowded today. I'm making some Turkish food tonight, and I forgot to go shopping last night. Oh well, I have nothing else to do today.

I love my hand!

I went to The Enclosure (a local exotic pet store) today since Bonnie was going for lizard food. Her mom, sister, and niece came too, so it was like a trip to the mini-zoo. On the way back...
Bonnie: Who wants ice cream?
Jordan (her niece) and Ade: I do!
Bonnie: Who can't have it because it's Passover?
Jordan: Aww...
Ade: Hooray for not being a Jew!

But we had kosher Jew-desserts when we got back, so it was almost as good as ice cream. And I went to Giant Eagle afterwards and kept running into Bonnie and had to tease her about ice cream, because I'm so nice like that. Ha.

Tonight, we made Turkish food. I made zucchini patties and cheese rolls, and my mom made some spinach with garlic-yogurt sauce (Bon Appetit had a delicious-looking Turkish spread, so we had to try a few of the recipes). I thought the food turned out nicely, and since there were only 2 of us, we'll have leftovers! Yay!

But the Giant Eagle here really sucks now. It used to be awesome. It was locally-owned, and they had all sorts of neat things, and they'd give cookies and balloons to kids and that sort of thing. But then when the Walmart opened in Delmont, the owner sold it back to the corporation, because of Walmart's "death zone" for businesses. And since our Giant Eagle went corporate, everything has gone downhill. The produce isn't fresh (real fun picking through wrinkly veggies), they don't carry as many specialty foods (I've asked for things like dried mushrooms and peppers, and they don't even carry them any more), the store isn't organized very well, and the crazy chatterbox lady still works in the video section (though I've heard she's been reprimanded several times for talking too much). *grumblegrumblecorporatebastardsgrumblegrumble* Maybe I should go to McGinnis Sister's more often, since they have good stuff, although it's more expensive. I've been considering an apartment complex just down the road from them, actually.
