okay, no more Ebay for a while....

Last Friday I decided to hit some of the antique shops in McKinney since I hadn't done that for many months and there are a couple things I'd like to have if I could find them. a glass lamp shade for this one old lamp I have and an acorn shaped jar like the one I had ages ago, but RTO broke it and then later gave me a smaller one and broke that one too.

I managed to find both things on Ebay later that night. The lamp shade was pretty cheap and I hope it works, but won't feel terrible if it doesn't. The acorn jar is another story. The original one, I bought at World Market on clearance for three bucks, so I was hoping to win the one on Ebay for about the same, but then someone else bid on it... I know they always tell you to pick a high bid and stick with it, but I was really wanting this acorn jar. oh well. I promised RTO I would put it in a safer place than the last two.


The plot thickens....

Just got a call from another LaPlume for Betty. Hadn't received a call for her in a long time. The lady asked how long I've had this phone number and I told her six years and she said "I can't believe it's been that long since I tried to call my brother-in-law." well. okay.

update: she called again, but I let the machine pick up. She was wondering if they had moved and that's how we got their number. I figured I'd wait til I could talk to RTO to act on anything. (cause sometimes there are things I don't think of) anyhoo, he got home and I told him about it and we decided to first see if we could find her brother-in-law listed anywhere nearby. but then maybe there was a reason they hadn't spoken for a few years.... so RTO called the number for RL, explained the situation and gave him the other lady's number. Just makes you wonder....

I get the feeling...

tomorrow may not be as productive as I'd hoped. DARN YOU AMAZON!!!

I'm starting to think about Christmas shopping... bought my first gift, um, Thursday. also there was this:

I felt kinda torn... yeah, it's a Christmas tree, and they already have decorations and such (at Hobby Lobby) but at least this tree at the entrance was decorated with pumpkins.

Anyhoo, if you're related to me and there's something in particular you think you'd like to have you better let me know... soon.

I can explain this... no really...

RTO doesn't understand why I find this to be so hilarious. Anyhoo, this is a co-workers board and every time I walked past it, I thought it said "What's in the box?" so I was thinking, "I'm gonna put some kittehs in there." Well, the girl is gone from her desk at one point today and i go to draw my kitties and notice that, that's not what it says. but I decided to put the kitties in there anyway and add "KITTIES!!!" to the list. I figure that's thinking outside the box. way outside.

haven't been many pictures lately....

and this one isn't great...

I finally sat down and made this thing because everyone wore mics in Phantom, but they only had two mic belts. which is silly and they eventually came up with clips for all of them, but I prefer to not worry about moving my mic around for costume changes. Plus, I'd been "planning" this for a while so I'd have something for my phone when I walk Roxie. There was a bit of trial and error involved and I'd still like to add a snap and maybe some girly iron-on thing, if I can find one that fits and that I like.

Blue Dog...

RTO: that's it Roxie, go get Jim Webb.

MK: Imma have to find another congress critter for you.

RTO: But I want him to get slobbered and chewed on.

starting to feel like fall... sorta....

closed Phantom last night and was at the cast party til 3 a.m. but still managed to wake up in time to see the Cowboys beat the Bucs. it was cloudy and "cool" (low 70's) all day. Not nearly as much rain as yesterday.

RTO got home from drill around eight and was complaining about it being cold. heh.

anyhoo, it was nice to finally have a day with nothing to do. Next one is, um, Friday, I think.

that was at 1:30....

oh, I'll just take this and read a bit til it kicks in. *sigh*

What the heck is RTO reading?

RTO: oh here's a sentence to take out of context...


RTO: "Her palm itched to grasp the huge butt"

MK: heh, I'm posting that.

it's International Bacon Day! I'll be having a bacon, egg and cheese sammich here soon.

because I, or somebody, said so!

MK: oh, I'm off 27 cents.


MK: means I made a transposition somewhere.

RTO: how do you know that?

MK: cause it's a multiple of three.

RTO: Why is that?

MK: um, I think it's the way the ten-key is arranged....


MK: no, that doesn't really make sense does it?


MK: see, here it is, 74 instead of 47


MK: because... SHUT UP!
