June 19th, 2010



I spent pretty much the entire day hauling tail around to garage sales (with my dad, in between chauffeuring my brother around to various graduation parties), and combined we found a massive pile of treasure which I will tell you about ASAP.  But first, this!  Because we are ridiculously behind.  And unlike at work, when I get behind on my blog, nobody puts four kinds of bakery desserts plus a huge bowl of candy on any front tables to up my productivity rate.

Day 12 - An episode you've watched more than 5 times
Well, besides nearly everything on That 70's Show and Seinfeld...

It's like Christmas in June.

Seriously, the pile of bounty I piled on the kitchen table at the end of a long, exciting day of garage sales looked like Christmas morning.  Santa himself could not leave a collection of gifts this spectacular.  I think I spent half an hour after I got home just purring with pride and marveling over all my impossibly good finds, admiring them like a cat with newborn kittens, or possibly a magpie surveying its latest cache of shiny things.

In related news, I am such a horrid spendthrift - after my book bender last weekend, I spent something like $15 today!  What strange madness has overcome me?

Oh, that's right, the magic of a church parking lot sale with supposedly 80 or 90 separate little booths.  It took me over 2 hours to thoroughly wind my way through, so that might well have been true.  Normally this place is not that big a treasure trove for me, despite its size, but this year it was like they swapped objectives with the neighborhood sale, and had a crazy blowout of stuff I wanted, stuff I needed, stuff that was being sold for incredible bargains I couldn't pass up.
