Bah Hum Bird!

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on November 24, 2009

So let me get this straight…I have to get up at 1am Thursday morning to start the big bird, go back to bed at 2am and then wake up on the hour to baste until 5am and then start preparing 20 side dishes, 2 pies, 2 cakes…all between one oven and a small microwave, set the table to look like something from Martha Stewart’s Living, look like I stepped out of Vogue as I serve it…then do two loads in the dishwasher whilst washing all the big stuff which puts me at about 1am Friday morning and then I’m supposed to get up at 4am and stand in line to shop in over crowded stores for bargains whilst everyone else watches football games and marathon TVLand episodes????

BAH HUM BIRD!!!!!!!!!!!

What I REALLY want is my own reality show just to get this documented!

Can I just say EBAY??!!!  Wow if I had some extra bucks I’d be pulling in some deals right now.  Some EBAYERS are offering free shipping…check it out!  

Here are some other links to consider when shopping for bargains online this year:

 http://www.fatwallet.com/  Online coupons, deals, cash back and comparison shopping!  YES, I want a fat wallet after Christmas!!!

 http://www.rebateshare.com/  Rebates, deals, offers, you can’t afford NOT to check out this website! 

http://www.ebates.com You must join to find out the offers but the kicker to join is a $10 card to one of the following:  Best Buy, Target, Sephora, Office Depot or iTunes OR you can opt for $5 CASH! 

Hope these are helpful to you.  I LOVE BARGAINS!!! 

As Wilma used to say to Betty, “CHARGE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” 

Well, as a former banker I have to say DON’T charge it.  DO start a Christmas account that pays out in October for NEXT year. 

I’m done now.  😉

Flattery or Jealousy?

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on November 26, 2007

Random thought…so is flattery and uplifting people you care about really just the positive side of jealousy?

Hot Fashion Trend Alert for Women

Posted by TheCanvasGrey on October 25, 2007

TREND:  Women wearing their PJs (pajamas) to the store. 

THE RULES:  You may NOT wear baby dolls, gowns or house coats…that is tacky and what mama would wear.  It must be a shirt or hoodie with PJ bottoms and slippers!!!! 

My dear friends came to visit from another state last month.  She could hardly believe I was serious about this latest trend UNTIL she got back to her state walked into the store and first thing she saw was….yep.   We laughed for 2 solid minutes when she called on her cell.   

I guess we found this odd because the grocery store is the PERFECT place to meet the PERFECT eligible man (a man who cooks **wink wink nudge nudge**).

Over the last year I’ve seen everything from a green hoodie, white leggings with pink tulips and bunnie slippers to a yellow camisole, purple M.C. Hammer pants with grandpa slippers.  Some looked not bad…others looked ridiculous! RE-DIC-YOU-LESS cause ya ain’t catching a man you’d want in a get-up like that! 

Although I may now consider investing in THESE as the next WHAT TO WEAR!

UPDATE 12/12/07  Ladies, ladies…. alert alert…I kid you not! At school pick up I saw it! Yellow as the sun PJ shirt, brown pj pants and TWEETY YELLOW slippers…fluffy yellow slippers. The trend GROWS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Update 12/19/07  Come on people!  This is becoming the thing to do in our area.  I see the slippers out on the street now…BIG FLUFFIES!  We all better hurry over to this website to purchase these before they are SOLD OUT!
