It was a great time! I don’t usually like wine, but I enjoyed all the ones we tasted. Read more

Yeah, you saw it was Lee-Jackson-King Day until 2-freaking-000?? Let’s celebrate MLK who fought for civil rights with men who fought to secede from the USA to keep their slaves!

We have the day off today (Lee-Jackson Day = state holiday??) so my coworkers and I are going to lunch and a winery. I’m almost at the end of the South Beach Diet Phase 1, which is no sugar, no carbs and I’ve lost about 10 lbs so far! But no sugar no carbs means I don’t get to have any of the delicious stuff at this Read more

Hm, maybe I should buy one ahead of time and see if we like it. Or I suppose I can just add them and return them if we don’t. Read more

Turkish bath towels- I’ve seen them recommended on GT a few times. Where can you get them? Are they worth replacing regular towels? Read more

Today is brought to you by the artwork in my gynecologist’s office.

Within a few hours, Mexador and I are setting off to home state for a week with our families. I still need another gift for my dad, so I’m hoping inspiration strikes at the store.

They hire seasonal help, but it’s not enough right now. Things aren’t this bad during the rest of the year, but I’m mostly recommending people take just their holiday shopping elsewhere.

No, thank you, I’m actually going to physical stores. I said, I understand people have reasons why they can’t just stop shopping at Amazon. I'm not too privileged to understand there are people who don't have the money or ability to shop elsewhere.

Amazon has a system where you work your shift (Monday-Thursday, for example) then have a day (Friday) that’s your overtime day. They can call you in to work that day and it’s mandatory unless you use leave. It’s been rare he’s gotten that assigned. This six day for a month nonsense though...

I love Etsy, I’m always looking for gifts there. My dad enjoys archery too, he and I once went to an indoor range in your very general area. I think he and my mom are going to get movie tickets for Christmas.

I don't know what the heavy items are like in the warehouses, Mexador says those are handled elsewhere. I doubt Sears handled the volume or prodded the speed that Amazon does, but I suspect in many places the treatment is the same.

I know some of the newer models actually have a sterilize button, as we were looking at them for my mother in law. I use mine frequently; I used it for 3 different dishes on Thanksgiving. I’ve made pulled pork, juicy tenderloin, mashed potatoes, Indian butter chicken, and I discovered that when my dog is sick, I can Read more

Eventually. Mexador decided to stay up until noon (he usually goes to sleep at 9 for his 6 PM shift) watching movies so I couldn’t even get my Christmas music and decorating going until afternoon. I wound up having a nice quiet night of it, I have my Christmas rock playlist going now.

Mexador’s mom has very high anxiety and that apparently manifests as talking. So while she was here for Thanksgiving, she talked non-stop. And Mexador was asleep most of the time, so I was stuck listening and responding. I feel bad because it’s not really her fault, but at one point she talked at me for 3 hours Read more

Dante is looking especially handsome here. He’s actually showing off his new tag which says “Not all who wander are lost. Except me.”
