Low-key Saturday

Blech. My efforts to fight this cold are failing. Today, my throat was sore on top of the mild congestion and light cough. No fever and it clears up pretty quickly when I take something, but it's just enough to drag my energy levels down. I did not want this right now.

I did get out to Michael's with Alicia this morning, though. I had a $20 voucher to use before it expired tomorrow, and I wanted to look at tabletop trees. We've decided to put our Christmas tree upstairs in the media room this year since a) we don't know Chico will react to it, and b) we don't want Chico to run into it and bring it down because he slid along the tile or wood floor (which he does more often than you'd think). I figured I'd put a small tree on our tea cart downstairs, but Alicia talked me out of it once we were at the store. I ended up getting these hanging gift tags to spell out our last name, instead. I'm not sure where I'm going to hang them yet, but they're absolutely adorable. Plus, instead of paying over $30 for it, I got all 6 letters for just over $10. Not too shabby.

It was pretty low-key for the rest of the day, with a vegetarian rice bowl for dinner followed by watching the first Harry Potter movie. Craig and Alicia are in the mood for a rewatch because she's re-reading the books. Tomorrow morning is dying my hair, going to the grocery store, then taking another stab at Craig's coffee sponge in the afternoon. Keep your fingers crossed it works out better this time.

Today's question: What is the most serious law you've broken doing something you thought was morally right, wouldn't hurt anyone, or was no one's business but yours? How bad would the punishment have been if you'd been caught and given the maximum sentence?
I'm the first to admit that I'm a goody-two-shoes. Breaking rules makes me sweat. I always wear my seatbelt. I've never gotten gotten a ticket. I've never done drugs (though now that it's legal here in California, I have to admit I'm mildly curious to try an edible). Probably the only thing I can think of was the first time I drank alcohol. I was 20, so technically underage, recently broken up with my boyfriend of two years, and at a theatre party. That's about as wild as I get.
