I went to buy sympathy cards today. I try to keep a stash of cards at work or make the ones that we give but I am out of both. Sadly, there is an immediate need for these cards. So, I figured I'd buy several so I'd have some for the future.
May I never need them! :::knocking head:::
These were the only items that I was purchasing. At checkout, the cashier/owner of the shop asked how I was doing. I replied fine. She said I hope the rest of your day is good, or some such response, never really acknowledging or digesting that I was purchasing a slew of sympathy cards. Part of me wanted to start blubbering because it seemed like such an odd interchange and I thought it would be fun to make her feel bad.
Yeah, I'm a bitch. Wait, no, I'm not because I didn't do it. Right?
Here's a bit of irony that just dawned on me. The chair, in the picture above of the sympathy cards, I purchased from the son of my neighbor after she died. When taking the photo, I picked it for the lighting near it, but it seems so much more appropriate than that now.
You were worth waiting for....You the one that I adore....Oooh down to your type....For once in my life....You were worth waiting for....You the one that I adore....This kind of love you'll only find....Once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime.
Cadillac Records seems to be getting so-so reviews. I saw it recently and LOVED it. So much so that I've already downloaded the soundtrack from iTunes. My new favorite song is Once in a Lifetime by Beyonce. That woman sung her heart out and did a great job playing Etta James. The only thing disappointing is learning that even though this is based on historically true characters and life events, the actual story within the movie is fictionalized so you have to weed through what is real, what is conjecture, and what is pure fiction.
That's just a pain in the ass to me.
Why is it every time I make lima beans I burn the suckers?
I'm usually a fast learner. Why can't I get this right?
You can now import and export blogs on Blogger. I've now got all of my posts from my AOL days here now too. Of course that may mean a humongous meltdown on Bloglines when it updates because there were still several hundred that needed to come over here and I did them all at once. Last October was my five year anniversary. It's hard to believe! One of these days I want to go through my archives and weed out some of the entries that are worthless. You know the entry, where it's whine about this, whine about that, and no real anything is accomplished or stated.
Hmmm....I wonder if this entry will make the cut one day.
