Today I've learned:
-Santa doesn't like little boys that cry. (Spoken by a truly frazzled mother to an even more frazzled little boy at Target. His response? "SANTA DOESN'T LIKE ME??" Way to go, mom.)
-Read the instructions. (Would have saved me 30 minutes and a lot of angry words.)
-I should have done my Christmas shopping on Amazon a month ago.
Today's best quote, hands down:
"...nobody would rename a menorah a 'holiday candelabra...'" (Thanks, Tony. So true, so true.) (or should I call you Tony the Daddy?)
Today's second best quote: My friend Jolene (who I met on a message board for women who have suffered ectopic pregnancies) and I were talking about various people who treat their children poorly. She said "maybe I should make up business cards with my name and under that put 'lost a baby to ectopic pregnancy april 29, 2005. Call me when you need a reminder how damn lucky you are to have your child.'" I second that emotion. I think it's a great idea.
Today my friend Christine posted several funny cartoons on her site. Here are a few:
What'd you do?
We wish you a NOW-y Christmas
The best one...
Today I almost finished my Christmas shopping. I'm so close, I can taste it.
Today I realized that Drew insists on going Christmas shopping with me, but only to Bass Pro Shops. He didn't want to go to Bath and Body Works. Hmmm...
Today, Amazon e-mailed me and told me that the book I ordered for my mom's birthday, which was supposed to be in a week late but that was okay, will now not be in until January. My mom's birthday was November 5th. I've passed the deadline. Thanks for nothing, Amazon.
Today, I'm going to start reading The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.
Today I found out my friend Tony is going to be a father. This is the most wonderful news I've heard all day. Congratulations, you two! I can't believe it - so great! By the way, if ever there were a person who needed a blog, it's Tony. Especially now.
