Like a stocking stuffed with goodies. That turn out mostly to be crap toys made in a third world factory and some stale candy.
Little to no blogging today. Work is kicking my ass, we have a holiday obligation with friends tonight, both my kids have huge projects due tomorrow, I haven't finished my Christmas shopping yet and I haven't even wrapped one single present and I still have to figure out a way to get my kidney out of my body so I can sell it in order to afford the rest of my holiday shopping - or I'll be forced to dig those red fishnet stockings and green bikini
out of the closet. Money, cash, hos, baby.
I did get one blog thing accomplished and that was to start using Jittery/BlogPoint
, an adverstiser of this blog. If you'll notice on the right sidebar, I am using it to sell a piece of my husband's art (and lo, did we learn our lesson last time about shipping/packing). I'm thinking of this as a blog yard sale. We have tons of stuff around the house (including unopened video games) that we'd like to get rid of and what better place to sell it then right here?
If have a blog you've got some items you'd like to depart with/make cash off of and you can't be bothered with the whole eBay thing (BlogPoint gives you much more control), then you might want to look into this.
And that ends today's commerical portion of ASV. I will no go back to working/printing out items for a timeline of space travel. Which leads me to a question: Do teachers ever take into account that a child might have projects going on in other classes as well? How hard would it be for the teachers to get together and say, hmmm...do you think giving the kids four projects to complete in one week, in addition to regular homework, tests and quizzes would be too much?
This is where I usually end up doing half a project, more out of pity than anything else.
Also (trying to cram everything into this one post) it has come to my attention that nobody outside of Long Island knows what a Dairy Barn is. This is a Dairy Barn.
It's a small store that looks - you guessed it - like a barn. It is specifically a drive through store; you can't walk int (unless you're buying beer, then you have to get out of your car). Not only are these stores wonderful in cold weather when you don't want to leave the warmth of your auto, they are also a boon for lazy people who just don't feel like walking the ten feet from parking lot to front door of the 7-11 and for people like me, who realize they are out of cigarettes/coffee/ice cream and can get into their car in pajama bottoms, a t-shirt, no bra or shoes, and no one will be the wiser.
I think that's everything. I'm going to test my anxiety levels by braving Target during lunch hour. I would say wish me luck, but you'd be better off wishing luck to those who come in contact with me. I have not had good shopping experiences lately, which can be attritbuted to my psychological shortcomings, my fear of crowds and my hatred of humanity, but a girl's gotta shop when Christmas is coming (online shopping just wasn't happening this year for various reasons). I think I picked a bad week to be out of Xanax.
