I feel only slightly guilty that I am riding on someone else's broadband to do this. Unfortunatly my network doesn't reach up here. And I'm not sure if getting a booster to maybe allow it to reach is worth it. Thoughts from my geek-enabled friends?
This weekend has been spent doing nothing but organizing my house. I've made lots of progress... it really is livable. There are plenty of items that still need to be purchased (boy, I knew moving wasn't cheap - but most of my expenses are coming AFTER the move!) Also need to figure out potential furniture purchases and placements. As people come visit, I expect you to share your thoughts.
Yesterday was spent on a whirlwind shopping tour with Lolita in a huge shopping empire in Brooklyn, hitting Target, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Home Depot. By the end of it all (6 hours, 7?), I was more than ready to call it a day.
Oh yeah, then there was the shopping car theft. I've heard of many kinds of theft, but this one took the take. Since the aisles are somewhat crowded, Lolita and I were leaving our shopping wagon in the big aisles as we took a look within the smaller ones. Well, off we went looking for comforters, and when we returned, well what do ya know, our wagon was missing. And sitting in its place was a wagon full of stuff that was completely different than ours, except for the presence of laundry detergent. We figured, ok, someone took the wrong wagon. We'll wait.
And wait. And wait.
I then went off to search. While I was away, the woman who took our wagon returned to the scene of the crime - WITHOUT OUR WAGON! She tells Lolita that the one she was standing by was hers... and Lolita responds (these aren't exact quotes, as I wasn't there - but you'll get the jist of it)...
Lolita - "Where is MY wagon?"
Thief - "Oh, I left it somewhere down that-a-way."
Lolita - " You mean you took our wagon in mistake, and just left it somewhere while coming back from yours?"
Thief - "Um, yeah... I can show you where, I think."
LOlita - "How RUDE! You steal our wagon, and you don't bring it back! How DARE you??"
Thief - "Um, oh, I'm so sorry, um, I'll, er... I'll go find it! I promise! I'll be right back! Oh my!"
Heh. Take that shopping wagon thief. (Yes, we got our wagon back.)
