without my pirin tablets, I'm finished
Thursday, May 12, 2005

› by victoria

I love the movie "The Birdcage." Sometimes I am worried/bemused that I am quite a bit like Albert. Especially the scene where he goes on and on about how he can't function without his "pirin" tablets...

What are you doing? Why are you giving him drugs? What the hell are Pirin tablets?

They're aspirin. With the "A" and the "S" scraped off.

No! My God! What a brilliant idea.

I've been accused (back in the day, when I still lived at home) of being addicted to aspirin. Which I say isn't true. It's just that when you start to get a headache, you must do something about it.

I don't know why I'm so tired, or why my brain was so foggy this morning, or why it felt like a troop of Glashans had danced on me all night. I went to bed early. True, I woke up at 6 AM to go to work, but still...

I saw Katie today. Which was immensely heartening, after yesterday's disheartening experience at the bank (*when I deposited my check, the teller told me that I couldn't use any $ until Friday...and we were/are running very low on food, so that made me sad, and I cried.) So Katie has gent (given me, but I want to pay her back someday when I can, so lent+given=gent) me $20 so that we can get some comestibles. Thanks a million, Katie, you have no idea how touched I am that you did that for me.

Contents of pantry, as of this morning:
Sriracha sauce
soy sauce
Boullion cubes
One bag of macaroni
A can of sweet potatoes
Bag of dried lentils
Some ramen

Contents of fridge, as of this morning:
1/4 of a gallon of 2% milk
some apples
some carrots
horseradish sauce
ice cubes
half a stick of butter
half a lemon
A very old lime

So thanks a million, Katie. I really appreciate it.

I can hold it out and finish my english final today, right? And then I can have my pirin tablets.
