I'm home working on some Christmas gifts today, and I just must share with you that contact cement is the nastiest shit ever invented!

I started shopping out supplies for my snowman wreaths. I'm thinking I wanted to spend less than $10 per wreath. I want to give them to people who I usually spend around $20-$25 on so this will still make for quite a savings. Well, those stupid styrofoam balls are pretty darn expensive. Most places they are almost $1 a piece. Count the balls on the wreath and you'll see that it takes 18 of them. Out of budget, game over. So I started shopping at my favorite store, ebay, and found a lot of 150 of them for $14 including shipping. Yeah, that makes for less than 9 cents a ball. Now we're talking! Now we're down even around the $5 mark for the wreaths. I bought the balls yesterday and told Karen we would have to wait til next weekend because I wasn't expecting to see them until the middle of next week. But look what arrived in todays mail!

Little Molly is just obsessed with this printer. If she hears me printing something, she comes running. There's a blue light inside on the ink cartridge that she loves watching go back and forth. Here she is waiting for my next print-a-thon.Sometimes though, she gets distracted by the fish tank in my office. She loves to stand on top and watch the fishies swim back and forth under her. Sometimes she tries to grab them. Good luck with that one sister!

I just read this incredible love story on the news. Isn't it great to have a little good news every now and then? Now I must wipe the tears off my keyboard though. Belive me, if this is made into a movie or book, it is one I wouldn't miss!

what a week... I obviously haven't had much to talk about this week, hence the pictures.
hubby's still working on my siding, I'll try to post some pictures this weekend because it is looking loverly!
I did want to share something that happened to him the other day. He goes to this same gas station every morning to get his coffee. The other day, the guy in front of him who he didn't know bought his coffee. He said he always buys the coffee of the person behind him but only if he doesn't know them. John was all like: isn't that weird??? I was like, I think it's great!!! I'm all about the random acts of kindness, and who would've thought, right in our crummy little town.
Last night there was a kid down the street playing the guitar. It was nice out and we had our windows open so I could hear him jamming. It was great! I felt like I was living in a more progressive place where people meet up on sidewalks to share tunes. Later, the boys friends came over, the guitar was put away and the car stereo was cranked... the 2 hour version of cha-cha slide was then played... twice.
That's all I got, Happy Friday!

That Laura didn't know about. Karen clued me in last night that you used to be able to sell plasma next to bus stations. I suppose to fund your bus ticket. Not plasma tv's either, your blood. You sell your blood to buy your ticket out of dodge. We were talking about different things we could do to make money, I said they should have places to sell your plasma next to gas stations now. I don't want to be judgemental, but I'm thinking a lot of the plasma they'd be buying by a bus station in 2008 would be all hiv'ed up or have some crack flowing through it.
So Karen and I were discussing what we could do to come up with money quick. Prostitution seems an obvious answer... I just wish it wasn't so.... prostitution'ey. We thought we could each get rid of one kidney and one lung. Maybe someone would want a spleen? or a gall bladder? perhaps an appendex. She even suggested that she was willing to lose a cornea... then she could wear a patch, arrrrr!
So there was this college student (22) on Oprah last week who auctioned off her virginity to pay for grad school. All these women were so upset, women's lib, it's 2008 blah blah blah... I was upset because I didn't think of it while I still had it to sell! $1.1 million is what the bidding was up to, lucky bitch.
