it is once again time to revert back to saying that it was not my fault for not posting last night. i was on the phone with pete and in the midst of a scrabulous tournament involving lots of silent stretches on the phone broken by “invalid word?! hairnob isn’t an invalid word!” of course, i lost all games played last night, causing me to fall into a sleep coma til this morning. it also might have been all the shopping on top of the shopping i did yesterday, hoorah for christmas shopping! and now i have an official shopping project to guide today’s day off: i need a dress for a new year’s extravaganza. do i have dresses? yes. but none that are Just Right. malls around the greater metro area, beginning with the legends, here i come.
