Lolo, I tried, honest I did. I got up when you texted me. And Joe got up. And I summoned up my inner vampire slayer and got dressed, and went to Voldemart. And I got in there, and found you, and stood there for what, 20 minutes? And I had to get out. Joe got sidetracked by a toy he wanted to get someone, and tried to get me to stay with him. Alas, my inner vampire slayer is somewhat–is agoraphobic the right word? We shall pretend it is, if it’s not–agoraphobic, and had to bolt forthwith. A few minutes in the car and all was fine. I sat there and waited for Joe, who came out with a little more than the toy, but nothing we hadn’t discussed.
The rest of my day was fairly uneventful, and I like it that way. Spent 4 hours at work, had lunch at California Pizza Kitchen with the Incomparable Izzybella (the veggie spring rolls were delicious, as was the tostada pizza). Then we moseyed over to World Market and got a few stocking stuffers for each other, and meandered through Target. This is the Target we traditionally go to on Black Friday Afternoon, as it’s pretty much as crowded (or not) as a normal Target on any given day. We also traditionally see a movie on Black Friday, and our timing was such that we decided to see “The Blind Side” because it started at the right time and because the trailers looked pretty good. The trailers were right–we both really liked the movie.
And now I’m home, really tired and wanting to sleep. I’ve got a lot of things to get done around the house this weekend, and since Joe’s home to help, I’m optimistic. No leftovers from yesterday–Joe put the turkey in along with everything else, and foolishly left it on the kitchen table while he went to wash up or something (I wasn’t home when this happened). Scout is very sly, devious, and agile, and devoured the entire box of turkey, mashed potatoes, stuffing & yams. Joe was cheesed off. And Scout? Well, he just keeps getting fatter and fatter.
