Think maybe I will go to BestBuy Monday and finally purchase that LCD TV I have been putting off.... and swing by Wendys on the way home for a couple cheeseburgers!

What a great day! I'll slip into my Fruit of the Loom briefs, then join the cops for breakfast at Krispy Kreme.

Anything on over those briefs? Won't the cops be alarmed? ;-)

LOL! That's a scary thought! In my mind I completed dressing. Hey, how detailed do I have to be anyhow? Believe me, the cops and everyone else would have good reason to be alarmed if they saw me in briefs only.

OK so instead I'll sprinkle Scotts Miracle-Gro on the flowers as I walk through the park headed to Ruby Tuesday for lunch in my Fruit of the Looms with my hair in "Pippy Longstocking/Wendy" of Wendy's upwardly turned braids tied with ribbons from Michael's topped with a Domino's Pizza "I deliver" baseball cap while I'm singing with an Aussie accent along with the commercial "Outback Steakhouse: no rules, just right" that's booming out of my boom box from Best Buy inbetween taking bites of a glorious concoction of a melting Russel Stover chocolate tucked inside the hole of a hot off-the-line Krispy Kreme cruller.

But I'd rather go shoe shopping.

Clarification: The Best Buy boombox is balanced on my shoulder of course, as my lunch-hooks are full of donut-n-chocolate and flower fertilizer.

Natch.

Judging by Michael's previous contributions ($413,000), they have spent *most* of the money I've freely handed over to them in recent years, so I don't feel guilty about having to sit this one out. *grin*

Alice, all you do is throw away the box before you get home, casually break the shoes out and wear them one day, and when he says" where'd ya get those hon," you say "what, these old things?" and just casually walk away, swinging your hips so that your...trunk...is in his full view. ;-)

I'm rich, I'm rich! Even though I *need* even the most basics that most people take for granted, I just don't "feel the need" anymore. So, technically, I'm poor, but attitude-wise, I'm rich, I'm rich, thanks to your tagline!

What was that song, I think by the bald-headed female singer - "I do not want what I cannot have" or something like that?

A Blooming Onion from Outback and a ton of yarn and some knitting needles from Michael's


Yep - that's my idea of heaven!

After we all go pig out on Monday, we can workout at Curves (women only), Gold's Gym or 24 Hour Fitness. Good places for Conservatives, especially Curves.

I have no idea on the rich vs poor question, but it has long been my contention that you can NEVER own too much fabric.

Also, any new project will necessitate going out and buying more, as you can't possibly find what you need in your existing stash.

This thread deserves a fresh shopping-chat bump!

I need a plain-vanilla DVD player for a guest room...any suggestions as to brand. I'm trying to figure out how to get to Michael's on Monday (I'm very rural)--but I'm going to make it.

Shouldn't this be a boycott list?

It is obvious that the gop is the driving force behind the amnesty sell out, right?
