When you've got nothing...just type
When the Mr and I were out shopping yesterday, I picked up some crap I need for this project I'll likely regret. How's that for sellin' ya on it? I don't want to say what it is just yet because if it turns out like poo, I'll just forget I ever thought I could jump into the world of mod podge and carry on with my life.
The door guy came out yesterday and he was a nice guy. I commented to the Mr about how it was funny because I would say something and you could tell he wanted to let loose with a comment back and he kind of would but would stay very professional. I said something about one of the handles looking like the eye of Rah and he said "the Avalon?" without seeing it and we cracked up and he laughed but then went into how popular it is, etc. Another instance, I was looking at this glass door that had this big bushel of wheat etched into it. I said "so what happens when your obsession with wheat is over, can you just pop that glass out?" I could tell he wanted to bust out laughing but he went into why it couldn't be removed and such. I wanted to say "dude, loosen up. You're amongst friends here. I have no desire to be stuffy with you and treat you like I own you because I'm paying you money to provide a service." He told many stories of people who were finicky and demanding and they fixed everything so I get the feeling he just assumes most people are like that. I make a point not to be unless someone tries to dork me over. Then gloves are off. *jabs the air*
I bought a pair of jeans the next size down yesterday. I wouldn't go so far to say that's my new size because that pair just fits and the other pair I tried on fit but I feared if I sat in them, the button might fly off and be mistaken for a bullet when it ripped through whomever was unlucky enough to be standing or sitting across from me at the time. So for public safety I decided against that pair. I did try on the next size down in shirts and I'm pretty sure I heard an audible guffaw. Yeah, not there yet. I just like to check every now and then especially when my favorite pair of jeans is getting ridiculously big on me. Gotta love in between sizes.
I'm glad people seem to be liking the food posts. I've gotten positive feedback on them. I figured no one cared what I ate. I feel bad that the lunches look so similar but I have to have lots of fruits and veggies to keep my calories lower. Plus that's where I get the majority of them in. It's gotten me to at least not eat out of plastic since I know I have to photograph it! HA!
This weekend we're going to a Habitat for Humanity ReStore for the first time. Should be interesting! We're also going to an antique warehouse to see if we can find a chair for the desk that I can attempt to reupholster. I can't believe I just said that out loud.
What about you? What are your plans for the weekend?
