That turkey burger sounds amaaaaazing. Actually anything with goat cheese sounds amazing to me.

And how did you spend 65 at TJs?! Altho I am queen of random purchases that I don't need. Rice pudding def sounds like something i'd do randomly. I almost did tapioca the other day.

Have a great weekend!! We have to go see Horton Hears a Who...don't think I haven't forgotten that you said you wanted to see it ;-)

Wow, that was quite the day! And I wore flip-flops outside today too!!! It was incredibly thrilling.

roaches?!?! I would leave and never re-enter that apartment!

I had mice in the walls of my old apartment (I was also in a field next to a dairy farm) - but even they used to creep me out. I'd dream that they were crawling on me or something.....*shivers*

Goodluck getting rid of them!!

What are the dinosaur bones for? And ew ew on the roach, I saw one after having brought in several old book from our recently cleaned out the garage. I couldn't stop screaming as I killed it, and my cat just sat there staring at me. Worst hunter cat ever.
