We can all be thankful for that.
Now if she'll just not appear in her next perfume commercial we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief.

*sigh*

someone just brought around free Krispy Kreme doughnuts...

Is there anything more delicious than a fresh warm Krispy Kreme glazed doughnut?

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT'S GOOD AND HOLY!!! IT WAS SHOPPING HELL TODAY!!!

I was tempted but I didn't even buy anything for me. Well groceries, but that doesn't count.

I did get 2 out of four nephews taken care of for Christmas and got the wrapping paper and bows and crap!

My brother and I use to Christmas shop together. We would first have lunch, and then several drinks. It made us much more relaxed about the crowd. It also made decisions about what to purchase a lot easier. After we would sober up, and get home and look at our purchases, we would be like WTF did we buy? We still had fun.

Update:

Aftermath, report on the first day of the craft faire. I sold one hat, 5 note cards, and two drink coasters. I have made 1/2 of my fair entry fee back so far.

I'm not feeling too bad about it though, every vendor there said it was very slow for them today. Not surprising since it was a Friday and people were working. those that attend this fair every year say that Saturday and Sunday are much better for sales.

The worst part is that one of our neighbors is selling these super cheap 3D lazer etched "designs in crystal" junk...I think they are stupid as fvck, since I hate "stuff to put on shelfs and look pretty stuff"...but people seem to LOVE them and walk right by our table.... Mad because it was supposed to be a fair with only "Hand made crafts"...WTF did they let some dude with $5.00 mass produced in China shit into the fair???

On the plus side, I met lots of really nice folks, fellow vendors, who were complimentary about my stock and who had lots of good advice regarding pricing and other good local fairs to attend.

The lady I am splitting table space with, Maya, is REALLY cool and our neighbors are all very nice too. It was a very pleasant day overall...although mostly kind of boring.

OMG, and the kids there were super cute. Several young girls (10-16 yo's) loved my hats and were trying them on and goofing around...unfortunatly they were not BUYING them . Also very cute was an interesting phenomenom that EVERY child under 4 years old could not stop staring at me and smiling...it was kind of freaky, but in a very cute way. Since I am very much in a "whoa kids are super cute" mode it made for lots of laughs for Maya and I once we realized that it was going on. We were all, "look, here comes another...yep...he/she is staring at you" .

Looking forward to tommorow...the longest day of the fair.

Good night folks...I'm calling it a night....beer, dinner, and bed are calling my name...in that order.

Coffee! I'm so glad to hear that you've sold a hat! I hope that you sell 20 more in the next 2 days. Keep us posted!

I somehow managed to add myself to my buddy list on YIM, now, it tells me when I am online, that is handy. I can also send myself an instant message if I need to remind myself of anything.

I took Sim to Wally world Sat. It was our last place to look at bedding. I had already been there on Friday but they didn't really have anything. So as we entered and I could feel Sim's irritation shoot to 100% I had to act quick, I told him your Christmas shopping methods. He cracked up and said he wanted to go Christmas shopping with you and your brother.
