I'm going to set my little lizard free this afternoon. I was going to do it this morning, actually, except that I forgot on the way to work. I just don't think he's happy, and I don't really see how he could be. He was all free and stuff, and then all of a sudden he was living in a glass bowl -_- *I* certainly wouldn't be happy, and I feel like an absolute schmuck keeping him all penned up. Somehow this is different from animals that were born in captivity (or from hamsters, which are extinct in the wild because they suck at keeping themselves alive) - they at least don't know anything better, so the guilt doesn't hit me as hard.

In other news, I have a lovely bruise on my wrist, and have a cold. It's just a stress cold, which I am prone to and which is completely unsurprising given the new sleep schedule and the new job, but damn it's annoying. I feel like death warmed over, which believe me is absolutely fabulous for making good first impressions.

Probably burritos for dinner, since I've been driving Dan up the wall in my search for poblanos that don't suck, and white melting cheese for the sauce. We finally hit the jackpot at Soulard farmer's market on Saturday, and now that stuff -really- needs to be used up. Yesterday I didn't feel like moving, let alone cooking or eating, so I think it'll have to be today. Either that, or I'll make up the ranchero sauce tonight and throw it in the fridge... depends entirely on how I feel. The dining hall here has potato chowder on their lunch menu today, and I'm thinking that might not hurt.
