The fact that it is dark and dreary is not helping me get anything done around here. It looks like it is 7 in the morning, even though it's nearly 11. I don't think it's supposed to rain, but hey, I could be wrong. (We need it - 82 days and counting now I think)
So I visited our new Big Lots, and I think we must have the smallest location in the country. Seriously. I was a little surprised at all the people with full carts, because I walked out with just a bar of Zote laundry soap. (I love that stuff) To me, it was about the same prices as Walmart next door, and pretty much the same things? Am I missing something? Because I hear people go on and on about the economy, yet every time I got out, people are buying things like every store has the sale of the year. *shrugs*
Speaking of the economy, our local food bank - my favorite one to donate to - was broken into last week. It wasn't enough that they stole things - they actually trashed foods and made a mess. Jerks! I don't know if they have arrested anyone yet, but karma will get the best of them, I hope. The folks over there are already struggling to help the community as it is, and then this.
My neighbor still has not cut his grass. Our street looks awful lately :( Empty houses and unkept. How am I supposed to sell this place next Spring if this keeps up?!
I love that the new Caeser dog food comes with a resealable lid. I wish they'd turn around and do the same for cat food. It gets tiring opening all those cans. In fact, someone start selling a #10 can of cat food for those of us with multiple cats, please! LOL
They do, huh? Zombies bring to life our deepest fears Sorry, I don't "fear" zombies. I call it being prepared for whatever gets thrown my way - which has been a lot over the years. Others would have thrown in the towel and checked out. Me? No fear. I get cranky, I whine, but in the end, I toss on my big girl panties and move on to the next wrench Murphy's Law throws my way. Disasters happen? Yeah, well, it's just another day over here. Been there, done that. My aim is just fine if I need to because practice makes perfect. ;)
Now this looks right up our alley: The zombie game for people with brains I think I know what we're getting as the family gift for Christmas! ;)
By the way, stop the press - DH has decided he has too many video games and movies. I about fainted. FINALLY! He actually turned down my cashing in for a Game Stop gift card from MyPoints and asked for one that would get him camping gadgets instead. Well, knock me over with a feather! LOL
Folks, I am ALL about the zombie craze - obviously - but I'd like to whisper a little thing in your ear: some of you are being taken for a ride. Slapping the words "Zombie Slayer" onto a weapon and pricing it $20-50 above a model without it? Stupidity on the buyer's end. If you want that little phrase, it costs pennies. Go buy a regular weapon and slap it on yourself. This is the end of a public service announcement.
I think these popcorn buckets are hysterical!
