A Blog Wherein I List Things (TT#26)



(Header came from here.)

I don't have a solid theme this week, so this is more of a regular blog entry, written as a list.

1. Kevin got some fish for his aquarium last night. They are various kinds of Tetras.

2. One is named Skeletor.

3. One is named Jaws.

4. One is named Azrael Abyss. I named two of them. Can you guess which ones?

5. I went to Belk yesterday because it's Clinique free gift time. The bag this time is super cute (they usually are).

6. Number of free makeup bags I own: approximately 751. What the heck am I supposed to do with all these bags? I don't even wear that much makeup.

7. Like eyeshadow. I've never figured out what the heck I'm supposed to do with that stuff. I gave up a long time ago. So if anyone (in my real life) wants the eyeshadow that came in my free gift pack, let me know.

8. In fact, you can have every compact of eye shadow that's ever come in a free gift pack. I don't know what to do with it, but I can't throw it away.

9. You can have the free perfume stuff that I used to get in my Elizabeth Arden free gifts too....not that you *need* it. I'm sure you smell great.

10. I have gotten two book boxes in the mail (via Bookcrossing) in the past two days. Unfortunately, I'm out of packing tape which means...

11. I'm going to have to break down and go to Hell Wal*Mart today. Not just for packing tape. For lots of stuff. Whee!

12. I had my first experience with Larry's Pizza yesterday. I thought I had died and gone to heaven when I heard someone say, "Chocolate Peanut Butter Pizza!" Yes, please!

13. A note to Cordia Amant--Thanks for using me as a referral when you joined Bookcrossing. Feel free to look at my bookshelf and see if there's a book on my AVL list that you're interested in. I'll send it to you (just make sure the status was set by me). If you need help finding my bookshelf, leave me a comment.

Larry's pizza sounds like a fun, yum place!
Have you ever tried paperbackswap.com? I just started using them and love it.

Yes, I use paperbackswap.com too. I've slowed down on using it because I have SO many books on my TBR shelf as it is.

Mercy's Maid said...

Lori--751 might be a bit of an exaggeration. :)

Buck Naked Politics said...

Nice list. Happy TT.

You're not the only one who can't resist buying makeup just to get the free gift. It's a little known addiction I have. I'm not quite up to 751 bags, but I've got a good collection going.

I'll definitely have to check out your bookshelf. It sounded like such a fun idea. I'm considering which books I should release out into the wild. Hmmm...

Thanks for stopping by my TT. I have too many makeup bags too. Tammy Faye did not wear that much makeup either.

I didn't even DO a list for the last two weeks!
