    Bought stamps at the grocery store last night and the cashier forgot to give them to me. Went back tonight, receipt in hand, and was given the stamps, no questions asked. Took me longer to walk from the car to the store than it took to get the stamps once inside! Yay for no hassles!
    I never met a piece of chocolate I didn't like.

    Seeing gas prices at $1.37 the other day. Unfortunately, they bumped up to $1.77 today. WTH??

    Finishing my Christmas shopping today. I'm usually a December 24th frantic shopper, but this year I'm DONE!! I did most of my shopping online but I finished up today by getting something for both sons girlfriends and my granddaughters stockings. Both my sons have insisted that we not buy them gifts (since I'm unemployed) so I'm baking assorted goodies and giving them each their own basket of their favorites.

    Old, black and white Vincent Price movies. Two of my very favorites are "House on Haunted Hill" (1958) And "The Tingler" (1959). They are so ridiculous that they crack me up!!

    Also can't leave out "The Day The Earth Stood Still" (1951)

    I hate it when they remake the old b/w movies in color. They lose something, in translation (ridiculousness, maybe??)

    That's one thing I really hate. My husband is great at it though, so he wraps and I do the bows.

    My simple pleasure this morning was that I slept in a tad and I never do that. Been waking up at 4:30 for the past week. This morning, I woke at 5:30, was awake for an hour, but went back to bed and slept until 8.

    Thought you could sneak that by us??

    I'm happy I'm not homeless, even though my house is freakin' cold and nowhere near energy efficient. The homeless are having a horrible time this week! Some refuse to go to the shelters. So all emergency workers are on high alert for finding them frostbite or hypothermic. The public has been alerted to watch for stray pets who could sustain permanent frostbite.
