Stream-O'Consciousness Friday
 
Sounds of NPR...followed by sounds of water (accompanied by soundless soap)...followed finally by sounds of Today (Schuyler can watch Kathie Lee and Hoda and be happy)...mmmmn, oatmeal, milk, and blackberry yogurt that was actually not bad (at least not cloyingly sweet)...where are all those coupons?...I'll bring this stuff downstairs first...doorbell?...ah, exterminator needs me to open the gate; glad I hadn't left yet.

Still nice and cool...house was 61°F when I woke this morning...pity it's going into the 70s by Sunday...tootle along to my usual parking space at Cumberland Mall, on the middle deck of the garage that's nearly empty even on Christmas Eve...need a watch battery...stand waiting at least two minutes while clerk at jewelry counter/battery place makes personal phone call...but at least my watch is alive again (pain in the neck resetting all the clocks when DST rolled around without a working watch)...walked the length of the mall and discovered to my dismay that there still is an It's About Time store at Cumberland; I would have gone there for the battery instead...aha, that accounts for the picked-over look at American Greetings last time we were there; it's gone...went into Hallmark, got some birthday cards and a little "Blossom Bucket" figurine that says "Faith" with a sheep on it...now to stroll in the opposite direction...stopped by Fresh2Order and bought two bowls of soup for tonight or later this weekend...mmmn, chicken vegetable...

...must go to Borders...

No, there's nothing left.

Barnes & Noble...not sure what I was looking for, but did get cross-stitch magazine with cute rabbit designs...spied a new "Chicken Soup" book about Catholicism...grab it...and something else...buying books without coupons...what will I think of next?...store filled with people using the wi-fi...

...must go to Borders...

No, there's nothing left.

Bed, Bath and Beyond, accompanied by coupons...more heavy coat hangers...Plinks...another set of purse hangers, for use on the back of the bedroom closet door (that won't be used for purses)...neat gadget: sits in saucepan and stirs your gravy or sauce automatically...James? useful?...

...must go to Borders...

Hmn, how'd I get here?...must have been the call of the wild (a.k.a. fifty percent off)...found stuff, too: a history of Ellis Island...memoir of a man who lived in the wilds of Maine for a year...memoir of a family who chucked the rat race to run a blueberry farm...Heather Lende's next book about Alaska...Caleb Carr's The Alienist..."Curse of the Hellmouth" DVD with some outstanding Buffy episodes, including "Hush" and "Halloween"...My Boy Jack DVD...and a birthday gift...boooooooks...

Home...vacuuming...laundering dog towels...walking dog...good heavens, is it time for James to come home already?...Shane's for supper (lunches left over for both of us!)...our exciting Friday night: twofers at Publix and twofers at Food Lion...however, shopping is done!
