After an exhausting day at work, I had a good de-stressing evening. When I opened the mailbox I got a nice surprise... a CD I'd forgotten I'd ordered from Small Potatoes when they were in town last fall to play BFG. It's a re-release on CD of their first album, which was previously only on cassette.
This gave me the needed boost to make some fresh food... rigatoni with diced tomato, shrimp, and spicy sausage sauce.
Then Buffy with Denise and Alex, while getting my laundry done, and 24 with just Alex, who kindly provided a slice of cucumber for Oscar.
