Grr. Stupid NCDOT. Closing Interstates without warning. Turning 2.5 hour drives into 4 hour drives. And absolutely nothing about it on their Web site, so I can't confirm whether or not it'll happen again. I've sent an email to the NCDOT asking if they have a schedule of closings, and asking where I can complain to. I wonder if they'll respond.

Anyways, on with the minutiae:

Breakfast (Sunday): Cocoa Pebbles
Lunch (Sunday): T.K. Tripp's
Dinner (Sunday): Maggiano's, with deftly and skome and family (I had the fettucine alfredo with chicken; not the tastiest thing at Maggiano's, but I was in the mood for creamy. Followed by Chocolate Zucotto Cake, of course).

I really must remember not to desire CD's independently published in foreign countries. It causes me to do irrational things like spend US$30 to get a draft for NZ$90 (which is all of US$43.18) so I can buy a couple of Bach CD's from a guy in New Zealand, just because I want to hear the Well-Tempered Klavier performed on organ.

That was annoying. LiveJournal told me my entry wasn't successfully posting, but apparently it was, so it ended up in my journal 7 times. So then I had to go back and slowly delete it, one by one. I'm glad I slept until 1 this afternoon, 'cause today has sort of sucked. Except for that peanut butter cheesecake. That was good.
