First of all Wheeeeee I have reached my 300 blog post milestone.
Second of all, Bob and I managed to get the seasonal flu shot yesterday at the Costco in Dedham. Which is WAAAAAY better than the Costco in our town. And it is near a Whole Foods which actually has a big parking lot. In case you are unfamiliar, Whole Foods is this fancy schmancy grocery store that carries a lot of organic, i.e. expensive, food. It used to be called Bread and Circus, which my friend called Bread and Checkbook because of the prices. There are two fairly close to me, but I cannot bring myself to shop there except when I am in search of a specific Burts Bees eye cream. It is unavailable other places that I can find Burts Bees products, like Target. But the really irritating thing about Whole Foods in this area is there is NEVER an adequate amount of parking. Well, that and the people who shop there regularly are possibly the most arrogant, self-absorbed and entitled people you will ever find congregated in one grocery store. The parking is so inadequate that the one near campus usually has a cop directing traffic. Seriously. So you know, the Jaguars and the Lexus’ don’t have any accidents.
But the one in Dedham has a HUGE parking lot and it almost makes a person want to go shopping there. Almost.
In other news, I am surprised I can even type this today. Yesterday they began painting the building I work in. The contact high almost had me asleep under my desk. Our building is a house from the 1930s and it has cedar shingles, which were in dire need of a new coat of paint. So for weeks these worker bees have been outside tearing off bad shingles and preparing the house for painting. Yesterday all of a sudden there were worker bees on ladders outside of my windows, covering my windows in plastic. I have windows on three sides of my office, which was probably a pantry or a porch in the original house. It sticks off the side of the house, and half of my office hangs out over nothing, and is on stilts. If I had remembered my camera I could show you a picture. Anyway, now I feel like I am in a big bubble. Like The Prisoner. That show always freaked me out. Soon they will be done as much of the house is a lovely sage green now. It used to be beige. Hopefully I will make it through today without too much fumigation.
