Ever become overwhelmed by the tasks you face? I have this morning.
Between now and Sunday I must fix a toilet, clean my house, remove debris from my back yard, go to the grocery store, see Band of Horses and Tenement Halls at The EARL, host the Sunday Runners, go to the High Museum to renew my membership (Warning NerdSpeak: I don’t trust their website since I am not positive that their SSL connection is valid) and some other things that I can’t think about at this moment.
It Almost Became The Rally Tuque
At the Thrashers game last night I bought a $6 knit hat (tuque) between the second and third periods. It wasn’t so much that my head was cold, or that I even needed another tuque (I have four; five if I can find the one I got at Black Sheep this year) it was just that I thought it looked kind of cool, and for $6 I thought I’d buy something other than a beer. I deemed the new headgear to be the “Rally Tuque” since the Thrashers had not put a single goal into the Panthers’ net all night long. Within a minute the Thrashers scored! If not for the fact that the Rally Tuque also helped the Panthers score three goals (one empty net) the damn thing would have worked, for the final score was 5-3 in favor of the visitors.

I wouldn’t mind being in this position right now.
Target Has Let Me Down, Again
First it was not opening super early during the week prior to Christmas, not it’s this.
The other day I went to three different Target stores looking for post-Christmas markdowns.
One of my dirty little secrets is that for the past four years I have been buying post-Christmas markdowns of holiday-packed sausage, cheese, and nuts and serving those at my annual Super Bowl party. I consider it to be savvy party planning as it’s not like any of these items are going to spoil between Christmas and the first Sunday in February, and if I can buy them for 50-75% off of their originally-marked price all the better.
Sadly, this year Target’s buyers must have decided not to help me out because there was nary a Christmas sausage or cheese package, and the nuts that I expected to be discounted were not.
And now for some ideas stolen from LiveJournal…
Current Mood – Can’t wait for 2008
Current Music – Yeasayer’s “All Hour Cymbals” cd which I purchased from Amazon’s mp3 download service last night
Website Of The Day – If airline prices don’t start dropping soon 2008 may be the Year of the Car Trip for me. If so, I’ll be sure to check out Map24 to help me plan my excursions.
