lighterthanair: (don't burn the fire chief)
Roommate is coming home today. Won't be here until after 7, though, and then we're going out to Boaz to take advantage of their all-you-can-eat supper buffet. It's been over a month since I've eaten gyoza. O_O For a long time, we were going there once a week, on Saturdays when we both had time off together, because their lunch buffet is only $20 per person (the supper buffet is nearly $30), and we were using it as a reward system: if we go a whole week without ordering take-out or fast food, we can go to Boaz and eat delicious Japanese and Korean food instead. It worked. We saved money, ate healthier, and got to celebrate and eat gyoza and chicken katsu and delicious tempura yam and all sorts. I haven't done that since I started living alone, so even though it's expensive, it'll be a nice treat.

And then so long as we're not too tired and stuff full of good food, we might walk home after. It'll be around 9 when we do, and it'll be cooler outside than it is now, but a walk might still be nice, and I need to get more exercise anyway. But we'll see how it goes. We might not want to, when it comes to it.

Of course, because I'm going to have company, I'm half tearing through the apartment and cleaning things so that it doesn't look like I've been as slack as I really have been lately. Washing dishes, scooping outdated flyers and coupons into the garbage... I should have run the recycling down to the collection site when I went out earlier to buy cat litter, but I forgot. No matter, the site's only 20 minutes walk away, I'm off Sunday, and so long as the weather's nice, we might even walk there together, to enjoy some sunshine!

But what I really want to do instead of cleaning is to read! I'm 2/3 done Kat Ross's Some Fine Day, and though I'm a bit disappointed that a character I thought to be dead is actually alive (and now firmly destined to be the female lead's love interest, because that's how these things work), it's still a pretty good book. Doesn't break new ground or anything, but it's still good.

I'll do another load of dishes, straighten a few more things, clean the litter boxes, and then I'll pack it in for the day. I want to appreciate my downtime. As much as I'm excited to have company again for a little while, it also means I can't just come home after work on Saturday, dump my stuff on my floor, and then watch TV until I fall asleep, or read until I fall asleep, or whatever. I have to do the friend thing and be sociable, and I can do that and enjoy it and all, but I want to appreciate my alone time, too, while I have it.
