My mermaid was jealous. She told me Michelle's mermaid had beautiful hair. What was up with hers, she wanted to know. Emerald mermaid has a lot of hair. Hairless mermaid before.
Here she is now.
A lot of times things get lost in the shuffle around here. If you're dying to know about something that seems to have been dropped, don't be afraid to ask. You can always e-mail me.
I think I didn't tell you that I ended up buying three different gifts for the Yankee Swap at work. First I bought a juggling kit at Barnes and Noble. Then someone told me last year's hit gift was a set of wine bottle stoppers, and the juggling kit seemed stupid. The dude took it to his swap*.
Then I bought these plastic party cups. They come with a pen and you fill in the blank to identify your drink. The blank is "_______ well with others." There's lots of room for fun and play in that. I also bought a little drink recipe calendar to go with. But then I thought it was a little cheesy--what if the Dean ended up with that?
So I bought a bottle of $15 wine. It was very popular. The Dean ended up with two movies--the Phillies' celebration video and the Sex and the City movie, and I'm happy that I didn't buy the dean the crap gift. I got the "oh my god, is that today?" present: a university mug, coffee, tea, and biscotti. I don't even drink hot caffiene. The dude, however, loves it.
Clearly I shouldn't have stressed at all. No one else did.
* The woman who got it seemed kind of peeved, so the dude offered to trade whatever crap he ended up with for the juggling kit. And now he can juggle. That thing really works!
