I need to go to Costco at some point. I keep forgetting that this apartment doesn't have a microwave. It's not that big a deal now but it will become progressively more so as i unpack the kitchen stuff and am actually capable of making snacks or even meals for myself. I _had_ a microwave at one point, i know i loaned it to thaisa, i know i got it back from her, and then...? Perhaps it was a casualty of the previous move? When moving from one apartment with a preinstalled microwave to another apartment with a preinstalled microwave i may have decided that it wasn't worth the effort of keeping around.

Shopping list for next time i go to Costco:

A microwave of course
Another 12 pack of diet Monster
Another bag of dried blueberries
some AAA Energizer Rats of NiMH batteries if they have them
some more shorts and jeans. Most of the ones i've got now are developing large holes =P

Before i even think about going to Costco though i should shower, do laundry, and unpack enough stuff such that there is actually room for a microwave :)

Went to Costco today and got almost everything _except_ the microwave. They had two decent looking microwaves and i couldn't decide which would fit better. I need to measure the space in my kitchen and go back to Costco with a tape measure. I couldn't find energizer NiMH batteries, they had duracel ones, and those only included with the charger. Got a new pair of jeans, unfortunately they didn't have jeans shorts. They did have some cargo shorts, but only in various shades of brown and green =P I got one pair of those in the darkest brown they had. Also got DVDs of Amelie and Tron and Mario vs. Donkey Kong 2 for DS. Went by Bed Bath & Beyond and got a suction-cup shelf thing to stick in the shower, which is rather deficient in that regard, and also found a "water resistant" radio with a clock display on it for the shower as well. Unfortunately the clock display is rather small =P Went by Best Buy and got the rechargeable batteries plus a new cheapish mp3 player to use for audio books.

Oh, and i was disappointed to find that Costco has switched their berry sundaes from blackberry to strawberry :( Maybe it's a seasonal thing, but that seems kinda unlikely since i've never seen the strawberry ones before.

I'm trying to decide what to do for dinner now. I could be lazy and go to subway, or i could walk a reasonable distance to get something else. I'm wondering if motivating myself with the idea of getting a $5 coffee drink multiple times a week is a reasonable price to pay for getting about an extra mile and a half of walking on a regular basis.
