i got back from having dinner with my parents before an tao even came home. he brought in an used bread machine somebody had thrown out on the sidewalk, a regal kitchen pro bread maker (model K6743). i plugged it and it still works but i don't think i need another bread machine. i also got in touch with my aquarium guy, i'm all set to drive up to westford tomorrow morning to pick up the small tank. i talked to him on the phone, he was reluctant to meet at his house and suggested we meet at a bank's parking lot off of the highway exit instead (yeah, that's not suspicious). he sounded a little bit retarded, kept on saying how he was raising big goldfish.
