Ate Chinese again; this time the fortune was WTF-ish in a different way. It read: Happiness always accompanies with you.

And the reason I asked the new-pet question had nothing to do with any future plans of mine, believe me. I asked because I had just arrived home in the dead of night to find myself face to face with a largish dog I'd never seen before. Fortunately it didn't decide I wasn't supposed to be there and start barking or attack me or anything, but damned if I had any idea whether or not it was supposed to be there. It's rather disconcerting, as you may imagine, to encounter strangers of any variety in your house when your roommates are asleep. After contemplating the situation briefly, I concluded the critter was probably either an invited guest or a permanent addition to the household (this would, I realized, explain the appearance of a large dog crate in the kitchen the previous day), but either way I couldn't help but think it a little unorthodox that not one word of this had been mentioned to me beforehand. Only yesterday did I happen to run into the more talkative of my housemates-slash-landlords (the less talkative one I don't think would speak to me without being spoken to unless there was a fire), who let me know that they were boarding the furball through the end of the month, and apologized for not having warned me. I accepted the apology rather offhandedly, as what else could I do? They're nice people and I enjoy living here; I've got no complaints for the most part, but this particular incident did happen to come within just a couple weeks of a similar one that was rather more of a hassle (they didn't think to tell me they'd be re-grouting the bathroom tile, and I woke up late one morning in desperate need of a shower only to find that the shower was off-limits, pretty much for the rest of the day. In fact I almost didn't get to shower the next day either.) So, finding myself in one of those "is this really weird or am I just crazy" moods, I took to LJ for a reality check, which several of you kindly gave me. It's good to know I'm sane.

I had dinner at a Chinese restaurant tonight, and this was my fortune:

Some men dream of fortunes, others dream of cookies.

This may be the silliest fortune I've ever received. In fact I almost feel gypped. Not much of a "fortune," really.

On the other hand, one of my friends wound up with a fortune I remember seeing back in high school, probably the most memorable I've ever gotten: You may attend a party where strange customs prevail. I take great satisfaction in the thought that this fortune, though it took years, eventually came true for me IN SPADES.

A question for my loyal readers: Do you think it's perhaps a leetle inconsiderate to adopt a cat or dog and not notify your housemates beforehand? Does already having one make it okay to acquire another one without prior notice? How 'bout if you're not permanently adopting the critter, but only boarding it while its owners are away or some such--ought you still to let your roommates know that there's going to be an unfamiliar large animal in the house?

"I know very little about some of the people on my friends' list. Some people I know relatively well. Some of you I hardly know at all. Perhaps you lurk, for whatever reason. But you friended me and I thank you.

"But here's a thought: why not take this opportunity to tell me a little something about yourself. Any old thing at all. Just so the next time I see your name I can say: "Ah, there's so and so...she wears mismatched socks."

"I'd love it if every single person who friended me would do this. Yes, even you people who I know really well. Then post this in your own journal."

I have to admit, I'm rather enjoying replying to other people's copies of this meme. It's fun being able to blurt out random things that have almost nothing to do with anything and not have people look at me weird.

Blarg. I brought home two poppyseed muffins (one of my favorite foods in the whole wide world) and didn't remember to put them someplace airtight. The ants got to them before I did. Now all I can think about is the muffiny goodness I missed out on.

Okay, so this was half an excuse to post quixotically again. But in this case it's sort of appropriate. I do kinda feel like I'm tilting at teeny little windmills (having perhaps mistaken ants for gi-ants).

Let's ALL be quixotic!

C'mon, you know you want to. More to the point, you oughta.

Okay, so the ants invade when it's hot and they invade when it's raining. I just have to wonder why the hell they don't move in permanently.
