Throw your darts
Edited to add: I finally found that stupid Frappr button!
Might I also add: Die, Bloglines, Die! I've been all alone on my Frappr map for HOURS because you're ignoring me. I get more frustrated by Bloglines than Typepad almost any day.
FRAPPR! Fine. Go throw your dart at my map; no tranquilizer darts, please. I really do love maps -- DH and I used the Wisconsin Gazetteer on our leisurely drive on Saturday afternoon. "Let's see what's down this road..."
It was a good day yesterday in general terms, but it totally sucked in the weather department. Gray and windy and with a very fine snow. My neck doesn't like getting cold anymore! All those footprints are Duncan's -- snow is something new to be discovered every year, you know!
Mom and I had a nice lunch a great time browsing in some shops we hadn't been to in a while. We scored on the camera -- a Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W5, though also considered the slightly less expensive S90. In the end, I liked the way the W5 felt. I'd done a little legwork beforehand and found that though Circuit City had the best price at $290, Office Depot would throw in a 256mb memory stick worth $50 and the total price was only $10 more. I will also get credit on my Max Perks card. I like perks!
I ripped and restarted the paw and I'm very glad -- it's going to be perfect.
I also inquired about my Yarn Warehouse Weasley order. I've never ordered anything from across the pond before, so had no idea about timeframe, nor did I ever have any notification of shipping. I placed the order at the very end of September and it posted to my card in the beginning of October and now we're smack-dab in the middle of November and that's long enough (isn't it?) and I'm assaulted by Christmas wherever I turn and my highest priority is to knit this baby sweater (among other things) but I don't have the materials yet! "We must assume it was lost in the post," and another will be on it's way today -- I should have it by the end of the month, I'd say. Their customer service is wonderful, I only wish I'd known that they originally shipped it on the 3rd of October!!
