So...uh, what's new?

1. I love the Whiskas "Hubert" commercials. Talk to me when there's meat. *giggle*

2. Today I saw a dead 10 point buck riding a 4 wheeler in the back of a pick up truck. I only wish I could have got to my camera quick enough. Friggin' rednecks. *snicker*

3. This morning I left home at 8am and did some power shopping. My goal is to be completely finished my Christmas shopping prior to December 1st. I want to enjoy December this year and not be totally burnt out by Christmas Day.

4. Even though Carey told me that I had to buy for "other people" and not myself again, I came home with some volleyball socks, new shoes for work, OPI "The Grape Lakes" nailpolish, bodywash and vitamins. At least today the me to other people ratio was improved.

5. Ran into one of my girlfriends in the mall today and we had fun being goofy and making the store clerks laugh.

6. My co-worker lent me some scrapbooking tools for the weekend and I haven't had a chance to use them. Tomorrow is dedicated to scrapbooking. All day. In my pajama pants. :D

7. Listening to Blue Collar Comedy today and heard a bit about Pictionary being an evil game. I was sitting at a traffic light laughing my fool head off and thought the people in cars around me must have thought I was loonie.

8. At Zellers today I got ripped off twice. Even though the signs said that greeting cards were selling at US prices I still got charged the Canadian price. Four card cost me over $9 extra. I caught that before leaving the store and got a refund. When I got home I realized that the Bionicles I bought for my nephew that were supposed to be buy one get one half price were both charged at full price. They got a phone call from an unsatisfied shopper. Now I have to go back to get ANOTHER refund.

9. I tried on a couple of party dresses today for my upcoming Christmas Party. I think I'm going to recycle an old dress again this year. The one I tried on was little, black and covered in sequins. I liked it but the sequins were itchy.

10. On Tuesday nights I play volleyball. It's normally mostly women and the highschool girl's volleyball team. The past two weeks the Junior A hockey team has been coming out to play. They are all 16 to 20 years old. Is it wrong that I had to suppress my inner cougar after seeing a couple of the older ones running around shirtless? *hangs head*

What kind of scrapbooking tool?

I have put my scrapbooking on hold until after the holidays. I'm working on card stuff right now, and I can't do both.

I am going to a "crop till you drop" weekend in February. We are going on Friday night, spending the night obviously, scrapping all day on Saturday from 8 to 8, then driving home. It's at the Beach - about 2 hours away. I hope to have a travel bag by then. I have been giving Michael hints and even telling him about the Michaels coupons.

I received an invite to a Christmas party today. I was expecting it, but I was still excited. It was probably the most beautiful invitation I've ever seen. It's being hosted by two of our clients, one who is having cancer surgery this week. Hopefully he will be back for it. If not, we will still have it because that's they way he would want it.

I thought about a new dress, but I'm going to stick with Plan A from May when I bought the swirly jacket.

It is a circle and oval cutting template with with different blades for different sizes. I cut a bunch of pictures and some coloured paper to use as frames. Not sure how much she paid for it. I would like to have one but not if it's really expensive. I'll look around next time I'm in a scrapbook store.

I'm still trying to finish an album from our trip to Cozumel in 2005. I just want it done so I can move on to something else. Since that trip two of the three couples we went with have split and we seldom see any of them.

Yay for the party invite! I checked my closet this morning and discovered that my old dress that I'll probably wear was dry-cleaned after the last wearing so I'm good to go. Now I just need one of those super sucker slips to wear underneath it. *sigh*

My nails are now coated in Grape Lakes. I really like the colour!

Sounds like an awesome shopping trip. I have not started Christmas shopping yet this year. I'm usually almost done by now. *sigh* This year has not been kind to me. :(

Nobody should begin shopping for others until they have taken care of Number One. That is my rule and I stick with, even in the face of adversity!

I have made scrapbooks for both my sisters and my oldest daughters. Big, fat scrapbooks with tons of old family photos for the sisters and birth thru leaving home for my daughter. Older sister and daughter both loved and treasure theirs - keep it out on the coffee table a lot. Evil sister pointed out a couple of "errors" I had made in the text and put hers in the basement. *rolls eyes* Her memories are the only accurate ones.

Canadian stores must have made a bunch of money over the past few months over-charging you rank and file shoppers for stuff.

Yes Lights, it is wrong to be attracted to 16 year old bare-chested boys. You will burn in Hell. As soon as you cool off!

I know your shopping choices aren't as abundant as ours are down here, but I rarely go to Zellers anymore because of their constant screw-ups and lackadaisical service. I don't know that there's been a time that I've gone there and either not found what I was looking for, or was overcharged, or they had something mis-priced.

/end rant

And ftr, yes, I am stalking you :-)

I'm wearing MISO Happy With This Color! Isn't that a funny nailpolish name? LOL at selling greeting cards at US prices!
