Still swamped. Got Inklings sent off all right this morning, though.

Went to another movie late last night (10:30 pm showing, half-price ticket night) with Brian and Helen...went to see the Matrix again. Enjoyed it even more the second time around. Still not exactly sure how we ended up at the movies again; both Jeff and I were dead tired (partly because we have both been working pretty hard, and also because my alarm went off in the middle of the night because I still had it on British time!). When Brian called at around 9 pm, however, we couldn't resist.

Online grocery update: I am still ordering from Grocery Gateway, by the way. The delivery guys seem to be getting younger but are just as robustly cheerful.

My nieces Sara and Annie have their first pet! Apparently Sara's nursery school class had a pet fish named Flounder Bluey (the class picked the name), and Sara was chosen to be the one to bring him home for the summer. Sara and Annie are VERY excited. I'm sure my sister just hopes that Flounder Bluey survives the summer.
