It's Time

Holiday Shopping
I think about time some... well... times.  Last Tuesday, I wrapped up my holiday shopping.  In less than five minutes from thinking "I should really buy them something because the big day is less than a week away" I had finished placing an order for a piece of electronics, which would be delivered in time for Christmas.

The day before, I spent three hours driving from one store to another trying to find slacks in my size. To my dismay, I discovered that not a single one of the stores I visited carried anything with an inseem longer than 32".  Finally, because a late afternoon meeting that day was the reason I was driving around looking for pants, I visited a slightly fancier caliber of store.  After hours of searching, I found a decent pair of pants that fit well enough.

If there is anything worth taking away from this story (and I'm not sure there is) it's a suggestion/ reminder to plan ahead and shop online.

(Ah, Simpsons, I remember when you were consistently funny)

Today is Christmas and that means that it's the perfect time to enjoy the following:

Skip ahead to 1:02 if you like

No, no I was wrong.  It's too soon for us to watch this.


Errors in Posting Recently

I goofed recently.  I allowed a pair of posts which I partially drafted but never finished to be published.  I would blame the editorial staff but this is a one man operation.

  2. I was puzzled by the post which came up as not available or some such directive. Anyway, having joined the 21st century with high speed internet instead of dial up, I can see and hear all of the youTube clips posted. Been sick all holiday which makes for a bah humbug, why bother kinda attitude, but I still appreciate what and how you write. Thanks.

  3. That's backwards. I usually get the opposite problem, posts don't publish when I schedule them.

    Oh, and happy holidays and things. Be safe!

  11. I have trouble finding pants in my size too, that's why when i find a brand that fits, i'll just buy a few in different colors.

  12. Happy Christmas!

    oh, and I would have to agree that shopping online is much better. Although a tad more expensive with shipping costs, but It probably makes up for that with the cost of gas and time.

    Any movie with Will Smith in it is worth watching!

  15. I love online shopping, but I have to admit that it is better to be in a mall, try clothing on, touching, searching... Its different...

  19. Funny. Sale items and last minute shopping works fors or xs or xxl doesn't work for medium,large ones. Doesn't matter at all what product you are buying. I think July 4 one is better than Rebecca black or that bieber ones
