I have a cardboard paper cut on the tip of my index finger. I got it last night at WalMart while trying to open a box which contains a camp stove. Now it hurts whenever I use the little scrolly wheely thing on my mouse. Woe is me!

Matt and I went DVD MAD at Wally World! We got:

*Red Dawn
*Young Frankenstein

We watched "Vampires" last night, it was pretty cheesy, but I think I liked it. I think I'm going to watch "Red Dawn" today since I somehow missed it when it came out in theaters (several ages ago.)

Oh, and for those that may be curious, having the parents over was fun, but utterly tiring and stressful for me. Matt couldn't go anywhere with us, even though he'd requested the time off, because one of the higher-ups alsorequested time off. So, guess who gets to work even more??
Driving around with just me and the 'rents felt sorta like chauffeuring. I hate feeling like a chauffeur! Oh well, I did have a good time, I just wish Matt could have come, too.
