Vignettes from a Misspent Saturday

I had some errands to run today. I went after a successful morning of writing.

Virginia seems to be the vanity plate capital of the US. Two particularly well thought out/clever plates caught my eye today:

PRAA GOD (I'm not even a Bible beatin' Christian and I liked that one)

Nicely done, Virginia Drivers.

Went to Bed, Bath, And Beyond to get a shower gift. The lady offered free gift wrapping, and I was all over that. She wrapped it beautifully--tissue paper everywhere, stickers, ribbons, a card, the works. She handed it to me and asked if it was Ok. I said, "OK? I wish I was opening it myself!" She doubled over laughing.

I guess shop girls don't get many customers with a pathetic sense of humor.

And finally, why are Hershey's Take 5 bars so good? Damn it, Hershey! And now 50% off post Halloween.

Back to writing. This bitch won't write itself. Counting the hours till Thursday night. :-)

4 pearl(s) of wisdom:

You know, another lady and I were having a similar conversation in the post-Halloween candy aisle yesterday. Curse Kroger for discounting Halloween candy (No offense to Mr. Shagnasty)we muttered as we filled our baskets. Candy corn for Talmadge - 50 cents a bag, Tootsie Rolls and Lifesaver Gummies for me. Well, at least I managed to avoid the chocolate bars. Tootsies ARE lower in fat, as well as the gummies.

After I left the candy aisle, I hit the snack aisle for some dried cranberries and M&M's to put in my trail mix. Ooh, they have some cherry-flavored cranberries. Yum!

MMMM... Take5 bars are good but they are the DEBBIL!

I have managed to avoid the half-off candy so far. I have no doubts I'd be face first into a bowl of it.

You just changed your "comments" to "snarky replies."

I'm touched. And I promise to fulfill your greatest expectations.

I just figured out how to change the comments thing to something else. I expect great things from you, Talmadge.
