^ Best place to get really good quality canning supplies, too. Big pickling canisters, good pressure cookers, etc.

Not too bad. Went out at 4 and back by 6 and drove about 80 miles, to and from, in the process. I picked up my sweater and a couple things for my mom, and my perfume has been replaced. I was given a gift card today. Between it and 2 coupons I was able to get the largest bottle for $30. Then I had to go look at OPI. Why? It was BOGO... FREE! Merry Christmas to me. Now I just have gift cards on my list.

I did not watch the AMA's this year, but had to watch some shows on the fashion. I can't say I was blown away by anyone, but I wanted to blow a few outfits up.

Say It.  I Dare You.-imageuploadedbycurltalk1385794499.165863.jpg

Aubrey O'Day. Idk who that even is, but I have to agree with Joan Rivers when she said, "I'm closer to death than her t*ts are to each other". Bahaha!

Gaga's Versace simply did not fit. It was too small and too big. I'm not even talking about the condom commercial she rode in on.

Say It.  I Dare You.-imageuploadedbycurltalk1385794746.847252.jpg

Don't hate it, but did not love it as much as some. Gothic Mermaid may or may not be a good thing. If she jumps in the water, her top is going to slide right off.

I could go on, but I will post one outfit I did love

^ I actually had a dress similar to Aubrey's when I was 18. It was a graduation present from my oldest friend. It was made of a thicker yet more casual stretch material, was purple and had black trim, had a pop collar, the front had a zipper so you could choose your level of comfort, it had a T back and the skirt (slits and all) went down to the my ankles. I wore it with Doc's or different Mary Janes. Loved that dress, but do not love hers.

PS- I was not comfortable with a neckline like that. It's more 70's & 80's. Plunging necklines were not a huge thing in the 90's. They were a bit different

and you put tanks under jackets/shirts.

Okay, done now.

My son came home from shopping today and drove into the carport where he managed to knock over a ten litre tin of white paint (almost full). I don't know how he managed it - there were two tins, bright yellow, right at the end of the carport, he had no need to drive in that far and he must have seen them. White paint on the lawn, pavers and carport floor. And me needing to shell out another hundred-odd dollars for another tin. I suppose I should be thankful only one of the tins went over.

I am sad to say that I think I am allergic to some wines. I thought my hives were due to other things....but after Thanksgiving I broke out in hives. The only thing I did out of the ordinary was drink a lot of wine. I think it's specific wines and also the amount of wine. Two glasses appears to be the threshold.

^^ Oh no! Sorry, Starmie.


My SIL was worrying about their christmas gift situation the other day. The 13 yo asked for a smart phone, and he is getting one. $400. The 11 year old asked for a bike and a blue billion other things. They got t. $400. She was worried that the oldest would not understand when they wake up to one gift for him, and many for his little brother. I said, if he doesn't, it will be a good opportunity to learn. I know his little brother will be running around saying... Yes!!! They love me more than they love you. Just look around. Lol. Sometimes fair does not look balanced.

That made me think about my Christmases, too. Last night when I was looking at Buzzfeeds I was feeling bad for parents. I could have gotten almost every toy on that list, plus a cabbage patch, for $100. Most of that stuff was 50 cents (erasers) to $5. *I bought my She-Ra: Princess of Power dolls with my allowance, thank you* Cabbage Patches were outrageous ranging from $40-$50. I think the most expensive thing I ever got, and it was all I got, was a large keyboard and amplifier. My dad knew the women who owned the music store well, gave lessons there, and got discounts though. I was hitting the salsa button and grooving some parlor music. Lol

And in other random thoughts inspired by Buzzfeed. I had to take a refresher on how to make friendship bracelets. I can't believe I forgot. I made enough to last a lifetime and did send them to pen pals, on poochie stamped paper, and give them to people.

So, I went to have my snow tires put on, and my oil changed this morning. The lady who runs the shop is allergic to dogs, so I left Mia at home. Afterward, I drove home to get her, since we always run errands together, and I missed her (she'd looked sad when I crated her, too).

My shopping complete, I went to put on my seatbelt, and found when I looked down that she'd completely chewed the release mechanism for the passenger seatbelt. Like a fool, like an idiot, I decided to test it, to see if it still worked. I did this by fastening my own seatbelt to the other mechanism. And then, of course, it got stuck.

After another trip to the mechanic, and a lot of foul language (mine), I was freed. Now I am really mad at Mrs. Beasley (her newest nickname). Really mad. Really, really mad. She had a rawhide available, plus other treats, the whole time.

Someone will not be sleeping with the pack tonight. And I mean it!

With all the Zappa songs I have in my collection I have to ask why I do not have Valley Girl. I used to have it on tape.
That song was hysterical, and I loved his daughter Moon Units ( "Groovy, Man" ) part.

Okay, fine. For sure, for sure. She's a valley girl and there is no cure. She's a (bad asp bass riff- duh nuh nuh nuh duh nuh nuh nuh) Valley Girl. "Like, Oh my Gah!" Valley girl. "Like, totally." Valley Girl. "That is so gross" Valley Girl. "Encino is like so b*tchin" Valley Girl "There's like the galleria"

ETA: "He called me a beastie...
That's cuz like he was totally blitzed
He goes, like bag your face!"

Snort! I had forgotten that line.

She did make the wrong choice. And now she's on "no petting" rations. I expect to hold out........not very long.
-----------------------------------------
Dear Client,
It has been a pleasure working with you all these years. You're delightful. However, I think you're making the wrong choice by appointing your assistant the new editor of your award-winning quarterly magazine. She's a poor writer. I'm not sure who will be doing the editing from here on out, but I do understand that you have many options, including a marketing director who writes very well indeed.
I don't think you'll win any more awards, I'm sorry to say. I'm sure you know that already.

So I guess this is goodbye. I'm a little sad, but that's the way freelance life goes. Au revoir!

I almost panicked when I couldn't find this song on YT, but then I did. Loved the Descendants, and the part in this movie just before the song is played.

Come on people now, smile on your brothers everybody get together try to love one another right now. That was a song for the 60's, and this is a song for the 90's.

welcome to der weinerschnitzel, may i take your order please?

While reading yet another Norma Rae-esque piece about the deplorable working conditions in online shopping warehouses (hate to break it to that person, but even grounded static mats won't help reduce the static electricity in winter months), I came across so many comments about how robots should be used to do these jobs so people no longer have to do menial labor (which = science fiction dystopian) at all!

Yippee! A future with large masses of unnecessary humans, who no longer need to scrub icky toilets, sounds fantastic. *Let me not forget to mention the sunny fact that no person will ever be put in danger/harms way/feel leg pain on a job again. Just in day to day life while millions starve to death sitting safely in their non existent home that they can no longer afford (unless the wealth is shared, right?). Much better than railroading the corps that use temporary workers, that they can pay $3 less, and treat like dogs because the temp agencies take the fall.

Say It.  I Dare You.-imageuploadedbycurltalk1385871569.282948.jpg

I hate futuristic fascists.

I'm going to shut up and listen to Busta Rhymes now. "Daddy, what's it gonna be like in the year 2000?"

Is she still in the doghouse, or back getting cuddles?
