So today is supposed to be Tuesday Stitchy Night but I will forgo that tonight because even though I'm getting some stitching done, it's minimal and for an exchange which means no pictures.
With NaBloPoMo, I feel pulled in a lot of directions...topics to talk about and I don't want to tell you everything all at once because, you know, I need to be sure to have enough to talk about to fill 30 posts. Not to mention *the boy* likes the idea of being a guest on the blog and rattled off a short list of topics at me at 7am...when I was still trying to wake up. Be thankful I saved you from his quarter idea. He's all upset that he got stuck with a Canadian quarter and how back East, folks would accept the Canadian Quarter without question as payment but how here, in California, vendors all look at him crazy and think that he's trying to rip them off...of 25 cents. Apparently East Coasters are cool in this scenario and us West Coasters suck. Whatever...move on...get over it.
But I do have to say that sometimes...*the boy* is a big dork. On Sunday, he went to Walgreens to look for something and came back acting all suspicious and secretive. When I asked him what was up, he said he had a surprise and showed me this. This!
I can't believe he brought this home but apparently he thought that since it was 80% off, it was just such a deal. Now, I love Snoopy...but a Snoopy Pumpkin?! What is the world coming too?!
The next day, *the boy* went back to Walgreens to return the things he had bought the day before. I was hoping he'd return the Snoopy Pumpkin but something about at 80% off, it was a final sale. Again, he came with another surprise for me. I was scared!! What if he brought back a Woodstock Squash? I mean, what am I supposed to do with that? But fear not, it was not a Woodstock Squash...it was a nice trio of lined baskets. I was surprised! I liked them and they go with my living room decor.
Yes, *the boy* did good. But then it became clear. He thinks my coffee table/futon area aka stitchy corner is a little out of hand. See for yourself! This doesn't include the area to the side of the futon where I pile my wips.
So I'm to reorganize using the baskets for my stitchy stuff so that the coffee table doesn't look like a tornado hit it. It's a good idea. Maybe, it might make things easier to find since they'll be in "Valerie" baskets he wont touch. Now, he piles all his crap on top of my stuff and I'm always "where is....?"
So apparently, some scary stuff and some cool stuff can be found at Walgreens. I just go there for toiletries and stuff.
It's getting late here and I am anxiously awaiting what the election outcome will be. I hope that everyone went out to vote even if there wasn't any huge stuff on the ballot. For the city I work for, there were hotel and sales tax increases on the ballot. Approving the increases would mean that city services would be safe. Not approving would mean reduced services, brown outs of fire engines, less police officers, furloughs and possibly layoffs. I wonder what the voters decided and what this means for my future job stability. One can only hope that things turn out ok.
I hope you all have a great night...time for me to put some more stitches into my exchange.
Until next time...
