I saw these wine glasses back in the summer and almost ordered them from Molicoco, but it seems like it’s a flaky website, and I didn’t want to take any chances. But they are so cute. I love them. And I’m a huge Jaws and Shark Week fan, so they would be very fitting.
I have since found them on Amazon. I’m still considering it. The prices range from $5 to….well, way more than $5.
I have been “eyeing” these sunglasses on Amazon for a while.
I love them. I love big sunglasses, and these just scream my name
I love, love, love this sweater from Suzy Shier:
And right now it’s on sale for just over $17. I love sweaters anyway because I’m always cold (I’m literally sitting at my desk with a tank top, long t-shirt, sweater, cardigan, blanket on my lap, and space heater on – I kid you not), and this just looks chic and cozy.
I’m a little behind the times these days….mostly because there’s nothing I really want or need (not that I ever need anything). But, I figured I get on it anyway.
Bath & Body Works Candles
(But only when they’re on sale.)
Some of their scents are sooooo good. And some are just so overwhelming I want to puke. But here is a list of some of my favorites:
Obviously, anything pumpkin. 🙂
I should point out that I am very picky…I love the Patchouli only candle..not the Patchouli Vanilla…it’s way too perfumey and makes my head ache. I also like the Anise…and they have a black licorice scent that I haven’t been able to find in years. And I like about anything peppermint.
I love these candles because they burn for such a long time and the scents, if it’s the right one, is not usually overwhelming.
1.Ghoulies. Nope. Couldn’t do it. After 15 or 20 minutes, I had to turn that shit off. So bad!!
2.The Haunting (1963). I have seen this movie before, years ago. But this time (and maybe then too), I found it very boring. And annoying. I thought Lily Taylor was annoying in the remake, but Julie Harris needs a little throat punching too.
3. White Zombie (1932). This had promise. It still might. But I was so bored after a good half hour that I couldn’t deal with it anymore. Spoiler alert…the zombies are just people. There’s no blood, no zombie make-up or ghoulishness tho. Just people. And in black and white (1932), it’s hard to distinguish from the living and the dead.
4. Night of the Living Dead (1968). I saw this movie a long, LONG time ago too. And it’s not too bad. The lead female, Barbra, needs some throat punching. I fell asleep watching it, so I will have to finish. Again, the zombies could use a little more distinguishing characteristics…blood, more goth looking faces, something.
I will have to try harder…because, Halloween is in a week and I’m not quite there yet.
In keeping with the October/Halloween theme….here’s a little anecdote for the day.
I can be a bit of an ass. At work, I have had an ongoing ass-feud (that sounds weird) with one of my coworkers. There are many stories I can tell, but I’ll save those for another day. Yesterday, however, this co-worker (let’s call him Bob) used our firm calendar to plug in his appointment for blood donation. He scheduled it so it says “Bob blood”. Since it is the firm calendar, it is public to everyone in the office to see, amend, delete, etc.
So, I thought it needed a little spiffing up. I changed his appointment to say “Bob blood for sacrificial ritual”.
We have all had a good chuckle. Including Bob. But he said it’s not the worst thing…that another coworker would steal his paper calendar and write in things like “bikini wax”. 😀
Oh Fall, how I love thee….
This time of year, when it’s a little cooler out, and the dark comes a little earlier, I find that I’m not as eager to stay out and as I am when the sun is shining warmly. Once night falls during fall, I want to light candles and cozy up with a blanket and start my Halloweeny movie watching.
Something about the dark and the way the air feels different in the fall….
Mysterious, ominous, thrilling.
I’ve tried a couple of movies already but haven’t quite gotten in the mood yet (and turned them off). But, the time is a-comin’ and I’m feeling a little witchy….so, please send me your bewitching suggestions for my Halloween movie countdown.
I like all things witchy and Halloweeny…I’m never tired of Practical Magic or Scream. And of course, who could tire of Hocus Pocus?? But I’m always looking for new movies to add to my list.
When I was about 20 I dated a guy who was a complete ass. He was a full-on mama’s boy and a spoiled brat. Turns out that I actually couldn’t stand him (we didn’t date very long). He would get upset over the smallest things. One time he thought it would be a good idea to have a half-assed drag race. His grandfather had bought him a new sports car and I was driving a 1984 Chevy Blazer that would stall at right turns. But I floored that beast and smoked him. He was so pissed off at me that he wouldn’t speak to me for a few days. #mamasboy
One night, while waiting for him to arrive, I sat around watching Jeopardy. A few hours later, after he’d shown up and decided he didn’t want to go out, we spent the night in watching TV.
The same episode of Jeopardy came on another channel and I suggested we watch it. Of course, I’m an ass and never mentioned that I’d already watched it earlier. So, each and every time Alex Trebek would read the question (or, the answer), I would chime in early with the correct response. The guy was flabbergasted. He could not believe how smart I was. “How did you know the answer to that?”, “Wow! You’re really good at this!”, “You should apply to be on the show!! You would win!”
Yes….yes, I am brilliant, aren’t I.
Our dating relationship did not last that long and I’ve never told him the difference. My ’84 Blazer and my superintelligence were apparently just too much for him. :p
(And just for fun……)
