Today I

Burned I Want A Hippopotamus For Christmas on a CD "to play with and enjoy". Yes, I am easily amused.

Said a few choice words when the tow truck decided he was bigger than me, so he could push me around. That's not why God invented turn lanes.

Perhaps I should quit yelling, "You have the right of way, Grandma!" before it comes back to bite me.

Stopped at the pet store's adopt-a-thon and played with a very hairy puppy.

Got gas just before the price went up. Nice timing on the whining, Harvey.

Finished my Christmas shopping. Yes, finished. Opted not to count how many stores I went to since I decided to be creative and not buy everything from work.

Even managed to listen to myself at - "No Nettie, you do NOT need that first season collection of Law and Order: SVU even though it's used and only 25 bucks."

Counted my blessings that I work in a small retail store where they can't humiliate me over the intercom.

Am thankful for my job today, period. I have met some of the freaking best, most caring people there.

Decided not to take happy days for granted. After all, I can create them.

Finished! Christmas shopping, yay!

I'm doing a couple more rounds. Plus, I'm painting, recarpeting, new tile...I'm nuts!

I might invest in a good intercom system for BBW next year...

You should have bought the DVDs. You know you want them.

Yeah, a workplace sans the embarassing intercom-thingy is a good thing.

I wish I had your willpower. I can't walk past a DVD box set that I want without buying it.

I'd kill for your optimism, Nettie.

Just shoot me Nettie...I still haven't started Christmas shopping. It's so wrong that as a woman I hate, hate, hate shopping. It's hard for me to create a happy day when I know I have to go shopping.

Merry Christmas Tootie Belle!

Your last line reminded me why I'd make such a poor geologist. I'm always taking things for granite.

I used to install those intercom along with telephone systems and other thangs an engineering tech can do. They are affordable enough even for small stores. Count yer blessings. Yore hillbilly from West Virginia but now certified desert rat in Arizona. Yer Mad Friend, Al
