Last Minute Shopping


We ran from store to store... We waited in traffic... We spent all of our money... We got headaches...

But we did get to eat lunch at a five guys burger place, it was ok... The coffee place at the book store was too crowded to wait in line for a beverage yet the candle store smelled good. They were doing carriage rides around Ashley Park, but the wait was too long and it was a bit too cold for that mess.

As usual walmart was hell belched forth upon this plane of existence to torture all that is held holy and normal...

We saw people fighting and arguing, we saw people holding hands and giggling, we saw kids screaming an throwing things and kids all aglow and happy...

Yet my favorite event of the day was walking into Fuzziwig's Candy Factory... You can get real unsweetened dark chocolate by the pound... real chocolate... I wandered back and forth, thinking, pondering, weighing the options.. and finally decided upon a mix of dark chocolate covered almonds and covered pecans... It was worth the wait on queue behind the polyester covered behemoth who broke in line in front of us with a hmpf becuase she deserved to get out faster than us since she had a dozen snotty kids in tow.. oddly enough I didn't even care.. I was enraptured by the smells and with staring at the glass display case filled with all sorts of madness...

The shopping for the kids is now over, complete, and done. Now I just have to go back out on Christmas Eve to get a few more things and that will be it.. Yet I'm sure Fuzziwig's will be open, there's bound to be someone on my list that might want something chocolate covered...

even in my current state, the chocolate sounds good. my current state? anything i eat causes indigestion and a general feeling of 'being dead would feel better'.

hell belched forth...that'll be my new name for walmart from now on!

I really would like to go there. I hope they have sour candy. That is my favorite kind.

I love chocolate-most any kind but dark is the best!

Merry Christmas to you and your family. I hope that you are all well now and can enjoy this wonderful holiday time together with your "rock" by your side!

Blessings of Joy,
