Happiness is finding a forgotten (still wrapped and not squished) Reese’s peanut butter cup in your bag.
the unexpected – Today I was driving around trying to find the post office and an interview with Dooce came on the radio.
the good – I learned that American Apparel is opening a store in Seattle, unfortunately in the U District.
the strange – I saw press-on toenails in the drugstore. French manicure style.
Regarding the post from yesterday — I have it on good word that the Mattel machine can only make things with 25 (or so?) stitches, and consequently the resulting garland would be too heavy for a tree. Thanks to those who wrote!
For a few weeks I have been searching all over for some of those strong donut shaped magnets — I checked mom and pop hardware stores, craft shops, drugstores, strange discount stores and even the surplus section of Archie McPhee. Yesterday we were in a Radio Shack (don’t ask) and there they were. And now my shower curtain doesn’t billow in, bliss.
Note to self: they also had tiny rare earth magnets and the disc magnets for making marble magnets (perhaps stronger than those from a craft shop?), and they had a big old tube of silicone sealant, which people still ask me where to find.
