Mistletoe Marketplace opens to the public today, but I gotta wait till tomorrow to go. That's kind of a bummer, but I am soooo stoked.
I got a free ticket in 2005 from a company where I temped, and thought it might be a fun way to spend an afternoon. I had no idea.
For those of you who don't know, this is like the best thing ever for a woman. Sure, men go, but generally they're only going to be pack mules for women. Vendors from all over the country (mostly Mississippi) come to the Trade Mart and hawk their crap. 150 vendors, all packed into this one building, and thousands of women throwing elbows at each other and hundreds of men looking really, really bummed to be there.
I'm practicing my super mean mug all day today. The look that says "She's about to blow, we should let her in front of the herd." I hope I can convince the girl I'm going with to dump the kid at home, but it's not real likely... *sigh*
