the only highlight of this sunday was having hot pot for dinner at my parents' place. i finally cracked open my can of fried crickets for everyone to try out: only my father and i had some. they were bad crickets, sort of stale (even though they were canned), with no flavor, and slightly bitter. nothing like fresh stir fried crickets! i kept on eating after everyone else had long since cleared the dining table. later i made an emergency rush to the bathroom (this always happens when i have hot pot, it's a price i will gladly pay).
that's not true: there was one other highlight of the day - the dolphins patriots game. but once the pats were up 28-0 in the first half, i sort of lost interest, knowing that they'd eventually win the game. next saturday is going to be the last game of the regular season, that'll be a little more exciting.
back at home, i fished out a pair of sweat pants from my storage. i've avoided wearing sweat pants for the longest time: besides not looking very flattering, i always thought only fat people wear sweat pants. when i'm at home, i normally just wear my underwear around the house (surprise surprise) or a pair of jeans. but since the denim fabric sort of chafes my already dried skin, i'm resorting to sweat pants as a temporary solution. once i'm healed up, it's back to jeans - or just underwear.
