Hey, thanks for the 5 stars!

November 26th, 2005 at 11:57 pm

Someone was kind to give my journal five stars. Thank you!

Black Friday was sort of a non-event for us. J never went out; I went out with the intention to go only to the framers and perhaps Starbucks. I can report that Starbucks' gingerbread latte is pretty tasty (though probably not worth the >$4 I spent on it).

On the way home I noticed that K-Mart's parking lot wasn't terribly crowded, so I zipped in to see if Martha's towels were on sale. Indeed they were, at 33% off. So, I picked up a few of those and an apple corer for J and left. I can report that no one got trampled or wrestled to the ground, at least while I was there.

Other than that, there is little to report. I made another scarf (gotta love those big needles and chunky wool), and finished "Bait and Switch: The (Futile) Pursuit of the American Dream" by Barbara Ehrenreich. It was good but weird and depressing, and it made me thankful for my job in an academic library (where I'm told, anyway, that it's very difficult to get fired or laid off), despite the meager pay. J has a corporate job that seems quite secure, but reading this book might result in my taking an extra effort to get our emergency savings account balance up.

    It is hard to resist the lattes. Librarians live to a ripe old age according to the statistics. Enjoy!
