I had a really satisfying weekend. Sure, I spent a lot of it on my couch watching the first two seasons of "How I Met Your Mother"... but I also managed to venture out of the house, see friends, eat food, and drink a TON of martinis. But I don't know what I enjoyed more... hanging out with Ted, Marshall, Lily, Robyne, and Swarley or going out. I'd say it's a toss up. But god, do I love Charley's sangria! And drinking with Redcoats. Literally.

But, you know what's great about the recession?

Starbucks has a new deal where if you get an iced coffee in the morning - you can get a $2 iced coffee after 2pm. When you normally pay $4, half-off coffees is great! Their incentive worked, because I took my break at 2pm just so I could get one! I noticed a lot of places are doing buy-one, get-one-half-price deals. I got two pairs of American Eagle jeans, one was half-price.

Man, a bad economy is actually working in my favor. Not only did I get discount stuff through incentive deals - I got discount merchandise through my favorite shoe store going out of business. Sure, that's sad, but there are 100 shoe stores - when they go out of business you get like 60% off, and that's GREAT. Let's all turn this recession into a positive, huh?!?

In other, way less materialistic news, I'm able to walk again. I don't have my cast on today - and I just went for a walk in heels on the cobblestone streets of Boston, and I feel fine! It might be a different story later tonight, but right now I'm good! I'm a normal person again! Not a robot leg.
Did I mention I love How I Met Your Mother? Because seriously, I do. So, so much. It's the first show in a long time where I can watch it and enjoy it instead of thinking "Oh, I could write for this show..." or "I could write better than that!" It's definitely in my top 3 favorite shows of all time (beat out by "30 Rock" and "Arrested Development").
