The Day After
how are all of you, tired from gorging on too much food during Thanksgiving??? (for those of you outside the US I am sure you were aware that yesterday was Gluttony day here in the states).
As most of you know, I don't love the whole Thanksgiving deal, but I do like eating and spending time with loved ones, so with most family being 800 miles away, the holidays tend to be quiet.
Since I moved to Ohio, we have spent the holidays with our friends Bruce and Carol, and since Carol's passing last month, I know my bubs and I were wondering what was to come of our little surrogate family.
We were lucky and Bruce did come over yesterday for his second dinner (he's popular like that) and he helped me pass the time until my bubs came home from work, we had yummy food and then later apple sweet cake with ice cream.
Yummy...in fact I just snuck a small sliver of that cake to give me the energy to get through my blog until the coffee kicks in.
So yesterday was lovely, though sorely lacking one person.
We have our Christmas Tree up, though it is not decorated yet, and it really is beginning to feel like the holidays a bit more.
So with Holidays comes holiday shopping and sales.............so, today is what is known as "black Friday" in the US, the "busiest" shopping day of the year....now seeing as this does not really translate well into an online market I decided to have a little sale....maybe entice a few people away from the big stores and into my little one.
so, 20% off your entire purchase today, just write "BLACK FRIDAY" in the message to buyer and wait for a new invoice.
ok, now speaking of shops and what not.....something disturbing happened.
Wednesday I wrote my fake celebrity letter to Marie Osmond, and apparently I offended someone so much that in my comments she vowed to never shop with me again. Now.....I cannot control people and everyone has a right to get offended by anything they want to, but....
I need to clarify something the "letters" are a joke. I know, shocking, right??? They are a joke in the same way that skits making fun of celebrities on Saturday Night Live are, or a joke in the same way that The Daily Show is, or an opening monologue from David Letterman, or even a celebrity roast.
It is a lampoon. Yup, plain and simple. So, for those people who think they are nothing but mean, mean, well I am sorry, and for those of you who now think I am just mean, mean....well hate to break it to you but, I'm not.
So, for those people who find themselves totally offended when I joke about celebrities, please know that on Wednesdays I write the fake letters, and please, if you hate them that much, don't bother reading my blog on that day, come back the next day when I will be talking on and on about some other nonsense.
ok, that's all for now....don't forget, 20% off everything in my shop!!!
