After DOUBLE COFFEE TIME (and confirming that Steph got Lisa's and Henry's birthday cards which I'd mailed them), Mom and Dad picked me up for lunch at 11:30 at Dinesty Dumpling House to have hot and sour soup, white surfboard noodles with choy, and siu long bao. They gave me a lot of unsolicited advice about my life (apparently I don't need a ride to the eye consultation since it's not actual surgery AND just need not to look at screens in order to get rid of my cataract - yeah right!), are still under the impression that Steph is going to Beckett's baby banquet, eye doctors, surgery, technology, and said I could get green grapes on sale at Price Smart. I declined the temptation to go there, especially with my mom, so I got a ride home with Dad at 12:40.
Random stuff from Mom and Dad: A white floor lamp (which Dad at least helped me plug in), a forest green and white bedside lamp with pink roses / flowers, an old toaster, candy canes, a half-bag full of candy conversation hearts, a package of Nutella and Go! pretzels, a Mr. Munchy milk chocolate Easter bunny with rice crisps, a box of 12 Quaker Quick Oats instant oatmeal packets which expire in January 2019, a box of 12 Quaker Regular instant oatmeal packets which ALREADY expired in November 2017, eight double rolls of Purex Ultra 3-Ply toilet paper, a black Stormtech fall / winter jacket which will replace my white zip-up Stormtech fall jacket (it's MORE THAN FINE to throw things out which don't work for me...), a purple Tabi International coat, a handmade (?) purple yarn vest, a light brown Paraphrase petite flowery wool vest, a random white comb (I almost typed BOMB), and $10 cash.
Also: FUCK EMERGENCY POOPS, MUCH-NEEDED QUICK SHOWERS, AND RUINED PANTS AND UNDERWEAR!
