the price of things

Spent these past two days plugging away at pricing for shipping. Learned a lot about different rates, and I think I got a hang of it! I printed out the complete USPS pricing chart, though I did four pages a legal size paper sheet, so the type was VERY small but I could read it with a bit of a squint. It's proved useful. So I got the chart all filled up with shipping. But over time I'll add more to it. So much data! But oh I feel victorious, and my boss gave me enthusiastic feedback. I just hope it is right!

Yesterday I went into Port Townsend for a little movie date. We were going to see My Old Lady, but it was sold out, but two of Celia's friends (Jan and Jill??) mentioned seeing Birdman at the Uptown, which is a theater I hadn't even been paying attention to! We got our seats right as the trailers were rolling, so excellent timing. And what a relentless film! It never lets up but in a good way. Visionary, well performed, just all around great. Really happy I was finally able to see it, as it has been on my list for a good long while. Now to watch the calendar for Laggies, Whiplash, and Force Majeure.

We both had Elevated Ice Cream afterwards, and we both went with the delicious Mexican Chocolate flavor. So absolutely good!

Went to bed early, as I was feeling exhausted. But I was called to work from home, so that was a bonus. I've been feeling so worn out these past couple days, and now I'm feeling like my old self again. Now to tuck into bed. I'll set my alarm but there is nothing pressing on the docket.

Really wanna try making the New Orleans chickory style iced coffee. I had that in San Francisco at Blue Bottle with Robin, and it was SO GOOD. You make a vat of cold brew and dilute it. I need to figure out the Thanksgiving menu and practice the things I plan to make (cranberry sauce, bread, green beans...oh mashed taters). Some things I'm not taking care of, but some things I am. Did I mention I'm having a Friendsgiving? Friends for Thanksgiving! It'll be awesome, I'm sure.
