Roo is practicing his cinnamon roll impression right next to me. So far, I have to give him an A+. He's got the roll right, and he's the right level of sweet for the job.

I've been watching Horrible Histories and Yonderland most of today, mainly because it's been raining like mad. And because I'm a grownup. Really. I am. I promise.

Of course, I'm also watching recipe videos on YouTube. I want to start back cooking... and given how many times veganism has come up at work in the last few days, I'm wondering if it's a bit of a sign. I did enjoy how I felt when I was eating vegan, but it was always more time and money than I strictly had available then and especially now. But there are a lot of people who are proving you can feed one person for a week on $20 completely vegan, so it might be $40 for the two of us... which is a bit doable, especially if we can trim down on eating out. That's what kills our money.

I got the Wii Fit up and running. I'm not happy with my own weight... and I'm less than thrilled with Roo's too. He's hovering between 7.7 and 8.4 pounds. These are both less than he weighed at the vet, when he was 8.8 pounds. But he's acting happier and spunkier too. He's eating constantly, but he's also playing all the time too. He's had more energy in the last month than he's had since we moved to Roswell. Well, except when he's practicing his cinnamon roll-ness.

What I haven't managed to do yet today has been write, which is damn annoying. I spent two days writing a nine-year-old having a panic attack, and now I feel like I need a long hot shower. But the grown-up version of said nine-year-old got snogged and now apparently has no idea what to do with his life. The thief version is debating on whether or not he's willing to participate in this particular criminal endeavor. And the monster one? Well, he's too busy cackling at people trying to figure out what the hell he is.

And yeah, that's where I am right now.
