Friday, Finally..........

Hello There My Little Turtle Doves,

Wow, I am so tired. I woke up at the buttcrack of dawn today to work my coworker's shift.

I went to look for a coat hanger (not a jacket hanger, but one you find at restaurants where you hang your coats on the arms) after work.

Anyway, I did not find the coat hanger. Instead, I got everything else but the coat hanger. I spent a lot of money. But the good news, my little Christmas birdies, is that in addition to getting stuff I needed,  I got some of my Christmas shopping done. And I got good deals. Yes, it is better than saving 15% or more by switching to Geico.

There is nothing worse than going shopping in a crowded mall where parking is hard to come by, and where moms with huge strollers  and screaming babies are the norm and children old enough to be obnoxious are running across the store like banshees. Makes me want to superglue my legs shut. So praise Baby Jesus, I won't have to be standing in line this year.

My best deals were from Goodwill. I bought a London Fog jacket in great condition for $20.  I also got hot rollers for my hair for $10. You gentlemen may or may not be familiar with the prices of hair products for chicas. If not, all you need to know is that it is supposed to pump up my hair with some serious volume and make me look hawt. Rawr !

Moving along.....................

I finally got my bellydance DVD. The picture of me in the header was taken in September of this year, at the Desert Dance Festival. At that event, I danced with my troupe and then alone with my sword. I finally got the DVD of me with the sword.

And I would gladly post if for you my feathery friends, but I have absolutely no clue how to upload it to YouBoob YouTube. I've tried in the past, yet failed miserably each time.

Before I log off for the evening and pour myself a glass of Baileys, I thought I would tell you about the two acts of kindess directed towards me.

While I was out being a complete shopping whore, the couple in front of me graciously invited me to check out my items before they did, as I had my things in my arms, and they had their things piled in the cart. I thought that was so sweet. They were a happy couple, just joking around. They even waited patiently when the cashier made me go across the aisle to check the price. After I paid for my stuff, the wife smiled at me and wished me a good night. It was such a simple gesture, but it was a really nice one. It doesn't take much to be nice to others and a little really does go a long way.

The other act of kindness was that someone in my volunteer group filled out the paperwork and nominated me for a pro bono award which is awarded by the State Bar of California (Wiley Manuel Award). I thought it was so nice. I didn't think much of it until I looked it up online and saw a couple of attorneys bragging that they have it. I am not an attorney, just a paralegal but it is something I can list on my resume and every bit helps in the job search.

So that is all for now my little tweeters. I am behind on some of your blogs, but I will be by soon to offer up some of my pearls of wisdom.

Love, hugs, kisses and chocolates,

Congratulations on your nomination...and yes, every lil bit helps on a resume.

Btw, I don't have that kind of luck when I go shopping or in traffic. I always get the ones that want to kill me to get ahead of me!

Reminds me of what my mother used to say: "Mejor perder un minuto en tu vida que perder tu vida en un minuto" (when she'd see someone driving like a maniac).

Have a Happy Bailey's Weekend!

I didn't know there was a difference between a coat hanger and a jacket hanger.
