Monday notes

Not much going on at the market today, now that the Thanksgiving crush is over. The florist has put out her Christmas stuff and everybody else, yours truly included, is just taking it easy. There weren't any messages on voicemail or piles of mail or anything else pressing for me to deal with, and on top of that our office move has been canceled for now so that work is tabled as well.


After three previous tries, I finally managed to get a Breathe Right strip (actually the CVS brand "nasal strip") to stay on my nose for more than 20 minutes. I woke up around 3:30 last night with restless legs and congestion, so I figured I at least could handle the congestion part. After degreasing my nose a lot with a tissue, I got the strip to stick on, which felt great.


As I predicted, waking up to a clean room was a little disorienting. Probably the best moment was when I realized that all my clothes were put away, so I wouldn't have to hunt around on the floor looking for shoes, tights, tops, etc. I feel like I have a whole new wardrobe, now that I can find everything and it's all clean!

UPDATE, 12:58 p.m.: There is still NOTHING going on here. About the only thing I've done that took more than a minute was sort the mail and put it in the mailboxes.

Monster in Her Lair

So I threw one of my newly-washed-but-not-quite-dry-comforters over my bike last night, creating an instant-lair for Luckie, who hides under the upturned broken chair that happens to be next to the bike. It's a little lair within a lair.

She's small, but intimidating!

I'll get you, you stupid pants...

I'm currently bidding on eBay for a pair of black jeans that, remarkably, are in my weird size (36"x38") but meanwhile, I wonder why on the Lane Bryant web site, all their "Tall" pants seem to come with only a 31"-32" inseam! Hello, doesn't "tall" mean, um, tall? I need a minimum 34" inseam or I'll look like a dork. 36" is ideal. I have a nice pair of Size 18 pants my sister got me and they're Lane Bryant, but I can't seem to find any on sale now that would fit. I always have problems finding any women's pants that fit me anyway (despite my figure), but I was hoping. I don't even really want pants, I want black jeans, but ugh, I just want some alternatives from skirts and dresses, and the other day Luckie spilled red nail polish on those Lane Bryant pants I have, so...

P.S. Lane Bryant is having a big online sale, today and tomorrow, FYI. It's 30% off, with some exceptions. Plus you can get 25% off on orders over $100 (use code 000251600).

Another reason why I walk

I've often joked about people's problems navigating around my neighborhood, saying "It's all one-ways" but you know, I realized today it really IS! I was bored at work and Googled my work, then took the map and put red lines showing all the one-way streets. Um....

This is why when I moved from a building one block away, for the couple of truck trips we did, we had to go like 10 blocks -- no direct route!

P.S. Yes, Caleb, I know there must be some mistakes on the map, but I just went with whatever Google said, plus added in Luckie St., which was missing.

Yes, Satan Wants Peace

From the WTF Files...

Peace on earth? Not in our subdivision!
A homeowners' association in southwestern Colorado has threatened to fine a resident $25 a day until she removes a Christmas wreath with a peace sign that some say is an anti-Iraq war protest or a symbol of Satan.

I've heard of idiots confusing the Star of David with a Pentagram (or if really dumb, a pentagon), but a peace sign? What the...?
