This is gross: I just burped and it tasted like soap.
This is not gross: Tracy Lynn is the proud owner of a new box o' nonsense. Yay!!
In case y'all didn't know, Renn and I periodically go shopping for the Mistress of Spoon Flingery. Why? We don't know; it seemed like a good idea when we started doing this almost a year ago, and it continues to be a lot of fun, so we keep on a-shopping.
We tend to hit up the dollar spot at Target, for they have wonderful items stocked therein that make things like "careful selection" and "will she LIKE it" nonrelevant. Who CARES if she likes it? It was only a dollar! Woo! Then we hit up the candy aisle in order to procure bizarre third-world candy selections like root-beer flavored gummy pop bottles and ANYTHING made in the Ukraine. There are occasional forays into the magazine section for unusual reading materials, but by and large these boxes are concentrated on silly and frivolous things, plus an occasional article of clothing. Like legwarmers. Come on, they were only a dollar!
Doing stuff like this is fun as all get out, and when it's for a super-appreciative audience like TL, well there's just about nothing better.
(Albert sent Los Gatos about a million packing peanuts. This was particularly generous, because Albert loves him some packing peanuts. Apparently they are fun AND delicious!)
So it seems that Marie Antoinette's pearl necklace is being sold.

And that's it for today, except that I haven't asked y'all a question of the day in a very long time indeed, so here's one for Friday that you can opine on in the comments:
What's your best Hallowe'en costume EVAR? Either as a kid or an adult.
Mine is not even mine, but it was freaking hilarious: my buddy Bloggerwannabe bedecked a sport coat with about a zillion cigarettes, and went as a "smoking jacket." Most popular girl at ALL the parties, she was. I have not been able to top that effort, never ever.
Of course, then there was the year that the P house girls went as bodily fluids.....that was kinda awesome too.
What about YOU?
