Turns out "Pets in Need" is a brand. And the kittens (Abandoned, people! These aren't even a fancy breed! Just regular ol' mutt-cats!) cost $150. I can't get behind that.
So no new kitty. But we were close as heck.
In other news, we saw The Simpsons Movie. It was so good I will see it again and buy the DVD.
We also went to the Lowell Folk Festival on Saturday night with Nathan and Priscila. It was a little too late to be little more than lame, but Dan and I went back on Sunday afternoon and had a good time. We got falafel wraps from an Arabic place (and I could read the menu!), and they were really good except they had too much bread, so we ripped most of it off and ate it with hummus and goat cheese later that night.
[Man, I want the internet back. I have all kinds of cool pictures, but it's such a hassle to get them here. We're thinking of canceling our service completely and just waiting until we move. Oh! That reminds me! We got a letter from a banker! We're on the road to pre-approval and a mortgage. But we'll probably rent one more time, save some money, and take our time looking at our options. We found a freakin' sweet condo in downtown Lowell yesterday, which we can actually afford, and I want it. I want it now.]
Meanwhile, there are still 6,746 people in front of me in line for a Ravelry invitation. I check Shannon's from time to time, too, because I'm evil. Turns out Ravelry is evil, too, because when I checked her status, this is what it said:
- Ha! There are only 446 people ahead of Shannon in line. She's better than you, sucka!
