1. Got my nails did for the company holiday party tomorrow at lunch. This was, kinda embarrassingly, my primary 1 Thing for the day. Priorities, you know. 2. Call Verizon tonight and ask them to remove the early contract cancellation fee from my account AGAIN. They agreed to correct this before Thanksgiving, but I just got another bill with the erroneous $120 fee on it.
No joke, top of my Christmas list is a cast-iron skillet.
I really like her? I mean, I don't know her from Adam, but I've enjoyed her more recent music, I loved "Saved" and I even liked that sappy sad movie she did. She just seems like a good egg.
@EvanDeSimone But potato soup is so tasty! It's basically mashed potatoes as a soup!
Yikes, this made me squeamish.
@ATF DC. And by snowmegedoon, I mean the possibility of 2 inches accumulation.
@andnowlights I bet your home will look fantastic, though!
@Allison 121 animals! That's awesome!
Got a little emotional and bought wine and chocolate at the grocery store, so it was more than I expected: 54.73 Put money on the Metro card: 49.00 Big coffee out: 2.75 Necessities at the Family Dollar: 6.00 Meal out that ended up being two meals: 15 Christmas gift from Xmas bazaar at Swedish embassy: 23.26 Christmas gift at charming local shop: 15.90 Brunch + tip: 15.08 Chai: 3.85 Freezing my buns off: free! Pros: sufficient groceries to last over a week should Snowmegeddon actually strike. Cons: Pricey weekend and still didn't get all my Christmas shopping done. Total: 185.57
@Caitlin with a C Thank you, that is very kind. And it is not an emergency. Just a paperwork-bureaucracy-catch 22 that I find myself stuck in and which will cost a couple hundred dollars to get out of. Mostly it’s just a mess that will take time and money to clean up, neither of which I have in abundance. :-/ Minuscule in the grand scheme of things, but it's weighing on me now.
