I keep getting emails about tickets to Michael McLean's Forgotten Carols concert. How in the world did I get on Michael’s email list? No clue. I should write to him and tell him that we used to have a picture of his head on a stick at DB, and would put up daily affirmations, which were just some of the lyrics to his songs. Do you guys remember that? So funny.
I wasn't much of a Beyonce fan until her new song, "All You Single Ladies", came out and I loved it.
If I could figure out how to post YouTube and other videos on this blog I would totally do it, but I'm just not getting it. Maybe one of you could come here and help me...?
My deadly illness has abated, and it looks like I'm going to pull through. It's just a cough now.
I'm sure that the biggest reason for feeling better is that my brother gave me a really nice blessing on Sunday. I really love that boy.
There's a man here in my department who has found and fallen in love with some stupid nutcracker dolls that he found on sale at Zims, and he's telling absolutely everybody that they have to go buy some. I'm not kidding. I've overheard the conversation about 1,000 times. Sometimes he carries the doll around with him. The same man has a nutcracker tie that my good friend Nicole used to curse every time she saw it. I don't know - maybe when he was a small child he fell down an empty well and a nutcracker saved him from the darkness with magic? Maybe that's why he is living a life dedicated to them.
Working at the store kind of kills the Christmas spirit. If you are tempted to loose your patience while shopping, please be nice to the sales people. We're doing the best we can. And it's not our fault that what you want is sold out.
I am loving that every day this week at work there's been chocolate candy of some kind put out to share. Today it's mint M&Ms. Delicious. Happy Holidays!
Speaking of Happy Holidays - I don't really believe in this war on Christmas that I hear so much about. Sure there are those who celebrate Christmas because they want presents and parties but don't want to acknowledge the fact that it is a Christian holiday, but who cares? Let them. It doesn't change my Christmas at all. And besides, we all know that in the end those people will burn in hell. That's good enough for me.
I honestly envy people who live in London. The other night I was looking at some pictures and thought to myself, "I spent a two days walking around Paris this year, and four full days in London." It feels like a dream.
The best lipstick in the world (and I have tried them all) is from Laura Mercier. You can buy it at Nordstrom.
I read a good quote yesterday, "All I want is a warm bed and a kind word and unlimited power."
I'm questioning my own judgement in writing that "burn in hell" comment. Might be a little harsh. Of course you know that I don't really mean it.
I just put those "Silent Night" Christmas cards in the mail. I don't have all of your addresses, so if you don't get one, that's why. I do wish you a very merry Christmas, and hope that you and yours are enjoying every day of the season!
I have all sorts of work to do, and should get to it.
