|Three things happened today that will have a major impact on our lives here at the apartment.
1. Mom and I finally met the new landlord. Naturally, mom kvetched about the dog situation and he replied with a mix of brushing things aside, CYOA and PR. Mom's not happy 'bout this as she wanted something more concrete.
2. Mom and our friend have fallen out for good. Mom was going to have lunch with her friend today, but got snubbed this morning in favor of the boyfriend. Then, the friend sent an email trying to cover her tracks, claiming that she felt ill so maybe it was best that mom didn't come over. However, in that same email she tripped herself up: she claimed she went to lunch with her daughter. If she was so sick, why'd she go to lunch? Not to mention that she's married, and opted to visit her other significant other instead of a friend she had made plans with! Adding drama queening was insult to injury. The camel's back is broken, and so is this friendship!
3. In happier news, Pokemon FireRed arrived this afternoon. So far I've reached Cerulean City and my starter has evolved once already. However, I need to train him and some of the others a bit further before continuing.
In other news I did more work with Din's GUI and researched ideas for how to go about some other stuff unrelated to Din.
Tomorrow will be the big shopping; we had hoped to make it to Monday but we're running short or are out of too many things.
The Advent Calendar continues, unabated.
Today's link of the day is Scrabble by PES.
