My spellchecker says “habanero” should be “Phanerazoic”. Right.

My sister and I went shopping at Great Lakes Crossing yesterday for dresses for our cousin’s upcoming wedding. J-bird (that’s my sister) didn’t find anything she wanted, but she did find a cute outfit to wear to work. I found a nice Little Black Dress to wear to the wedding. I didn’t really want a black dress, but everything that was a cool color was either an evening gown, a prom dress, or looked freaking hideous once I got it on.

I also got an awesome wrap sweater from Guess for eight bucks. Go, go clearance sales!

J-bird took me to World Market, which is a freaking cool store. The best part is the market, which they don’t have on their web site. I bought a couple of Milka bars, some Ghirardelli chocolate, two different kind of milk mixes, a “Dancing Bear” honey bear for The Man, some Kona coffee, and some habanero hot sauce for Dr. Mom and Moll. I could have spent so much more money, but I figured I could always come back later for different specialty foods.

We ate dinner at Joe’s Crab Shack, which I’d also never been to. That was such a good meal. Seafood gumbo to start with, then 1 1/4 pounds of snow crab legs, corn on the cob, and steamed potatoes. By the time we left, it was a quarter to nine, and we had a long drive ahead of us. And, since I was driving, and it was nighttime, of course it started to POUR DOWN RAIN. It was a pretty tense drive home.

Anyone care to tell my why Michigan can’t repaint the lines on the road every so often? It’s really hard to tell what lane you’re in when you’re on a four-lane freeway, and there are really no lines on the pavement to speak of. I just guessed. That worked pretty well until there were other cars around me. Then I just tried not to hit anyone.
