pilfered from http://xkcd.com/

I think it works with all pets... and small children
my new swanky netbook arrived today - I am in the process of setting it up (the 50 hellish windows steps)

more once the thing is actually up and running!

A friend forwarded me a message that The Breast Cancer site is having trouble getting enough people to click on their site daily to meet their quota (45,000 clicks) of donating at least one free mammogram a day to an underprivileged woman. It takes less than a minute to go to their site and click on 'donating a mammogram' for free (pink window).

So, I figured if a few of us remembered to click when on-line it might help.

I am back in the land of the internet-abled...

ATT U-verse was being non-functional over dial-up at the cottage... hence, me being absent for the past few days.

Hope my lovely f-list had a wonderful weekend!

I'll be over in the corner wading through 4 days of LJ and email...
Lisa and I were chatting (on an actual phone as apposed to on-line) and I happened to mention I made modern peep art and she wanted to see, so I thought I'd share with everyone:

I took a square glass vase and filled it with peeps. It now sits on top on my TV.
I went to exchange a pair of pants at Kohls that have been sitting in my back seat since January 8th. Was supposed to be in and out - no muss, no fuss. Of course they still didn't have a pair in my size in black... so... I shopped. 2 shirts, 2 sweaters and a (different) pair of black pants later... not too bad $36 for all that plus 3 new holiday themed hand towels for the downstairs bath...

So then it was off to Walmart - needed household cleaners, personal care items and general food staples... plus I had coupons... Knew I should have gotten there earlier - as I was wandering through 'bathroom cleaners' the helpful voice came over the intercom announcing all Valentines items were now ninety - that's right 90 - percent off.

I honestly thought I had left the white trash behind when I left Arkansas... no such luck. Some guy bought 2 carts full of stuffed animals. And some random woman bought everything else: napkins, plates, bowls, gift bags, plastic serving bowls, candles, stickers, little tin buckets... 'Cause it's 90% off!!

But the absolute best part... was my cashier, bless her heart... the register wasn't automatically deducting the 90%... the cashiers had to in put the actual price. She told the woman in front of she's have to wait until she got a calculator. Undaunted, the woman checking out whipped out her cell phone and was doing the math and giving the cashier the cost of the items. She was right 75% of the time.

Finally a supervisor was waved down and the cashier again demanded a calculator of her very own... The supervisor explain she just needed to take 10% of the sticker price and input that - no need to subtract 90% from the figure... bless her heart, that poor cashier had the blankest look on her face...

ETA - I did also go to Dunkin Donuts to start off this little adventure... so it started off well enough

also, Ann... I checked the coding of this journal and it was set to 'tiny' - hopefully this is better?
