I'm sick. I used to never get sick. what's going on here? anyway, I'm home from work today, supposedly resting up and recovering, but instead I took a nap this morning and then ran some much neglected errands. it's kind of exciting taking care of things that I managed to ignore for so long.

in other news, herbie is going on a trip to the apple hospital. his ride came to my door this morning. looks like it's going to be nice and snug in here.

and just cuz I can, I'm posting some pictures of something I bought the other day even though I was thoroughly disturbed by it:
what is wrong with this picture? natural? cheetos? they're not even orange! I think frito-lay is doing everyone a disservice by claiming these "natural" "cheese" "snacks" are cheetos. they don't taste like them, look like them, smell like them... probably because they have no artificial anything and we know that there is nothing in nature that could make a cheeto. the only thing that makes these things cheetos is the word "cheetos" printed on the bag. oh, and this (the only redeeming thing about these):
