    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    Was at the grocery store yesterday in the produce section, turned around and my basket was g-o-n-e! Not a big huge deal, but there was another basket sitting there looking lonely, with some produce in it similar to, but not mine! There was nobody in the section except for me and the people who worked there. I looked down and saw a white prescription package, with a man's name on it. I went to customer service and had them page the name on the package. Eventually, this cute little old man came rolling up to the customer care counter. I asked if he was "Mr. Doe"; he says, "Yeah!" I told him that I thought he had my basket, since I had his medication. We switched everything out and, as he was walking away, he said, "Shoot! I thought I'd won something!". Actually, he did. He'd won his medication back! What a cutie!

    How funny. I've had my basket disappear on me before when someone took the wrong one.

    OK, I'm just curious if this "affliction" affects more people than just me...whenever I buy gifts for someone that I know they will love/need/want, I can't help but dread that someone else will get them the exact same thing or worse, they already have it. EVERY time I come up with something absolutely perfect for someone, I agonize relentlessly from the time I buy it until they receive it. OK, maybe not relentlessly , but it still bothers me. It always turns out wonderfully, they love it/can't believe I thought of it, etc. and all is well, but the next Xmas or birthday, it happens all over again!

    Just wondering if anyone else has this problem!!

    Nope, it's just you - you're psycho... KIDDING! I worry the same things. In fact I'm worried about the gift I sent for my SIL which she'll be opening Fri. (day after TG is Christmas at my bro's for all the assembled family reunion). I checked the internet history this afternoon (after returning from watching Enchanted, which was wonderful) and discovered Dan has a myspace. I told him the rules of the house were that I had to have access and had him log in then and there. Of course I don't know how to check anything other than the page you see, but it was blood red with all kinds of nasty looking bands on it. For movies he had, "action, adventure, horror, xxx" for books he said "all about murder". nice. For state of mind it said, "I'm hungry!" Somewhere in there it said he was always bored. Then checking the history it took me into a friend of my daughter's myspace and Dan was hitting on her. I'm not sure I have the stomach for this. At least I didn't find any porno, but he does know I'm checking now.
    Count your blessings!

    It might just be teenage "fun and games," but it strikes me as more than just a little creepy. Maybe another talk with the exchange student organization's liason (or whomever you spoke with before) is in order -- just in case?

    When my son would always say that he was "bored", I told him that was because he was "bor-ing". Kids kill me with that lame line. God forbid they should be creative these days.

    I remember when I was a kid (40 years ago +) I walked into the house one summer day and started laying around. Mom says "what do you think you're doing?" - I said "I'm bored".. Moms answer was "Go outside and be bored."
    There was always something to do outside - my imagination would run rampant.

    Boredom was not an option when I was a kid. We all knew that if we were to say we were bored, Mom would find something for us to do, and it would not be pleasant.

    I'm with your hubby tonight. I have been in a foul mood all day. Not felt good at all. Finally called my dr. this afternoon and they called in a script for darvocet and anti-nausea meds, so tonight I am not feeling great, but am high enough not to care. I still can't walk in the kitchen without gagging, so my wonderful, patient and caring husband has been back to the store for some things I forgot (I've been to the store about 4 times now for one meal) and is baking pies and pumpkin bread. He may well be baking the turkey tomorrow. But he has help. Both Rosie and Waldo are in the kitchen with him hoping he drops something. Bogie is playing nurse to me.

    My daughter is laughing at me because I'm walking into things and am obviously enjoying the darvocet. Actually I'm enjoying being pain free for the first time since midnight last night.

    I hate to be sick at the holidays. Maybe this is why I've felt scroogelike because I'm sick. Thank goodness we do not have company tomorrow.

    ETA: My daughter has just come in to inform me that the phrase "don't drink and dial" needs to have added: "don't pop pain pills and post".
    So I bid you adieu for tonight.
