Almost but Not Quite
I ate a brick for dinner tonight. Bleeeh. I'd been craving it for awhile and seeing that I eat one only every couple months, I downed the whole thing, slowly but surely.
I was worried the the sparkling lime water that I accidentally froze wouldn't be the same when it thawed, but it's okay.
I almost bought a new car last weekend. This one.
I don't need one.

At one point during all the downtime he says "You haven't asked me anything about me." Um...I didn't know we were on a date.
