Can you imagine going to a mall, dealing with all the people and horrible customer service and then getting hungry, heading to the food court and grabbing a bite and all of a sudden a bunch of seemingly random people start singing and dancing? You got to love it! So funny – honestly if I could participate in an Improv Everywhere stunt I would be so tickled! I just missed one that if I had known about that I would have gladly traveled the hour drive to participate in last year. It was on the local news and then of course on Face Book and all over YouTube.
I found this on YouTube and it brought back the memory and made me laugh!
At the latest monthly meeting for the civic organization that I belong to, much of the talk was about the yearly “Yard Sale” that has given them such trouble in the past with making any profit from. Since I am still pretty much a new member of this wonderful organization I seem to always be raising my hand with questions, ideas, concerns, thoughts and suggestions, which I think a lot of the older members grow tiresome of my intrusions of their time each month. But that was the whole idea of me joining this community organization, which was to bring some much needed new blood and there is no holding me back!
The “Yard Sale” is going to be held on the Saturday of the Memorial Day weekend. We are going to try some different advertising, as well as some new vendors with some colorful and unique items to have displayed out front outside. I have convinced the Milky Way Tie Dye Store to set up there and they certainly have a great selection of bright colors that I think will attract a ton of people that would normally just drive on by. I am thinking of putting a sign with bongos for sale, with my old set of bongos that if some body really wants could take it home for a few bucks. Tie Dye and Bongos. I think it’s almost perfect. I’ve got a few things that I wouldn’t mind putting out on a table for the day.
I have always enjoyed seeing the nice wood armouries that different people have their bedrooms and guest rooms. I’ve seen some real sweet jewelry armouries online recently that I’ve been contemplating purchasing. You can get some nice deals online these days. I look for free shipping (both ways of course) and other incentives for online shoppers, discount codes and coupons are always welcomed.
Researching your purchase online is a whole lot faster and easier and takes a lot of the guess and leg work out of the task. My mother took me to the local Sam’s Club last week, she has been a member with them for a long time and I always enjoy going with her looking at all of their great deals. They had some armouries that we were seriously looking at together, checking out the different sizes, the different pretty shades of wood and prices. I never really realized all the different types that they have out these days.
Now that I’ve seen some up close and personal like I feel better about looking online to find the best deal or possibly going back to Sam’s with my mother. One way or another I’m going to own a nice looking wooden armouries of my very own, especially since my mother intends to pass her’s down to my older sister to be kept in the family.
I love hearing songs on the radio that I haven’t heard for a long time and then going on to YouTube.com and finding the video to watch and listen to. My recent discovery is Sisco’s “Thong Song” oh how I loved that song when it came out almost a decade ago. It’s funky and easy to dance to, gotta love it!
I remember going to one of the many school functions that I try and attend to show support to my sister’s kids; they had the 7th grade girls dance to this song and I totally freaked. You gotta remember this was over ten years ago, it had just come out and I was finally realizing what the words were and what the whole song was about and then to see this young gymnastic team at a public school do a dance to such questionable music.
I didn’t say anything at the time, but after it was all over and on the way home the subject came up and we all expressed our feelings about the song and the dance. Man, didn’t I feel like such a “prude” and so “old fashioned” about my reaction to the whole ordeal and of course every time I hear this song I think of that day.
Last night after dinner and all the trick or treaters had gone home, we were talking about how most of the video games seem to be directed at the adolescent male market, and how hard it is for girls to find any kind of video entertainment that is geared towards their interests. I said “let’s see if we can find anything on the Internet that would be good for adolescent girls!”
So we got on the Internet together and started looking around. We couldn’t find a single darned thing that was of any value to an intelligent girl. Just some dumb stuff for girls who are only interested in fashion and shallow things. Things have got to change at some point, there is a huge female market out there just waiting…..
