Speaking of eating. I haven't actually cooked since Saturday when I made a pot of chili so spicy my tears were crying as they rolled down my face. It was awesome. And even though you probably don't care about the reason behind the why I haven't cooked since Saturday, I'm going to tell you anyway with just 2 words. Candy. Megasale.
Ok, I lied. I kind of have to elaborate because if any of you need 142 lbs of mini candy bars and Skittles, you need to drag your behind to Target right now where said items are SEVENTY FIVE PERCENT off. My BFF and I had to use a shopping cart to get our purchases to the Jeep, and all we bought was candy. Which means for less than $20 I'm stocked for holiday baking (peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies with reese's cups in them...so good that if you ate one you'd smack me, my mama, and my grandmama) AND treats for bead packages. I'm all about spreadin' the cheap candy love.
Also? Michaels. My desktop OTT bulb finally burned out after 7 years, which actually was the reason behind the shopping excursion in the first place. I mean a girl's gotta see, right? It isn't my fault the mega sale bins out front whispered sweet nothings in my ear. Sweet nothings like "jar candles for .29. Twenty Nine Cents!" And packs of 8 tea-lites for .15. And there were angels singing Halleluah and purple monkeys dancing in the aisle. I kid. The monkeys were too busy loading candles into my cart.
The OTT bulbs were also on sale. As were the Ott lamps. For a $15 difference I snagged an ultra modern twisty head extendable weighted base black contraption that totally matches my desk. Which means I still have room in my imaginary budget for Ramen's. Which takes us back to that whole eating thing.
I have now completely forgotten what I intended to write about when I opened this window, and I need a moment to stare at the ceiling and chew my bottom lip.
Zentangle! You must investigate! When I was in school yesterday or a hundred years ago we called it doodling, but this stuff right here is the Michael Angelo of doodles. Carol teaches it and has devised some really amazing structural ideas. It's the best way I know to use idle time productively, especially idle time that involves being on hold with the phone/cable/insert name company while they laugh around the water cooler about just how long I am willing to wait. Today I waited this long:
And here is a partial flock of birdz, many of whom are partyin' over on Etsy.
I will leave you now with another from my Three Little Birds (gone wrong) comic series.
PS: A candy pic was requested.
That basket is 2 feet wide.
That Kit Kat bag is not open.
And neither is the Snickers.
