About Me

My photo
I love a lot. I wait a lot. I try to find a lot to laugh at. I don't usually have trouble with that. I pray a lot. I'm not always sure who or what I pray to, but I firmly believe that prayer makes a difference. I try not to panic very often. I try to learn something new every day. I spend a lot of time poking my nose into other peoples' bidness via their blogs. I clean up an awful lot of feathers. You can dress me up, but you can't really take me out. I travel a lot when I can find bird sitters and we take them with us when I can't. I drink, prolly to excess, but I rarely get sick because my body is a hostile environment to germs (or maybe no SELF RESPECTING germ would LIVE in my body?) I collect: gnomes, passport stamps, MONEY-preferably US dollars or Euros, red headed womyn and chicks named Stephanie. My Momma taught me many many years ago that girls don't fart, they foosie. She taught me lots of other chit too. Thanks for stopping by-leave me a comment and let me know you were here, feel free to link to me, or email me at jacquelynn.fortner@gmail.com

Procrastinate? Who, Me?


Holy crap on a stick!  Yesterday I was all blase' because there were DAYS until Christmas.  I even *looks around surreptitiously and whispers* took a nap.  What the hell was I thinking?  I don't even know how I managed to, given that I am generally unable to sleep in the daytime.  Truth?  I did not set foot outside of the houseboat yesterday other than to go to the end of my gangway to feed the ducks.  I got El Juevo to feed the cats and made him fend for himself foodwise, and I spent the whole day with the birds talking about boogers and practicing our synchronized flapping.  I also spent a fair amount of time on the internet doing research for this blog.  *snort*  Kinda funny how one thing leads to another.  Watch just one foot worship video on YouTube and you'll see what I mean.  The recommendations they send you!  *shakes head* Just what kind of kinky freak do they think I am?


*gives you the stinkeye*  Hey!  Who are you to judge?  You came here.  (Heh.  Yeah, I know.  I said it.)  


Anyway, the upshot is that I get to go brave the crowds once again.  I have one or two last minute gifts to pick up in addition to all of my carrot cake ingredients.  I also have to convince El Juevo to make his annual last minute pilgrimage to Walgreens (where he does ALL of his Christmas shopping) a day early, as I am going to be up to my eyeballs in chit tomorrow, and still have to finger out how to fit in a trip to Mobile to pick up my order from Fresh Market. Not to mention the turkey I have to stuff and roast and have at my sister-in-law's by dinnertime.  Ahh, the JOYS of the holidays!

I am so sorry you have to hit the stores again. last minute shopping is a hell that I don't have the stomach for. Good luck!!

Screw that crazy action! I'm going to pick up a couple of minor things at the grocery store today, and then I'm not leaving the house until at least next Monday. People are crazy around this time of year, and I've got little doubt that the after-Xmas sale frenzy will be as bad as the pre-Xmas last minute rush. Good luck!

We had a revelation last night that Santa had not actual procured one of the requested gifts. Our kids each ask Santa for one thing. We have two kids. So I need to buy TWO things. And, I only bought one.
Ack.
Thank god a family member the kids don't know and will never see sent an acceptable option - which was promptly wrapped from Santa so I don't have to go to Walmart tonight.

P.S. the dog's name has been added to the post - thanks for the heads up ! The name on his cage is the name we are sticking with.....our hometown: Boston.

La Belette Rouge-Any excuse to shop-I just hate TRAFFIC.

Improbable Joe-But the after Christmas deals should be great this year, given that sales are down so much this year. Again, though-*^$%$%ing traffic!

Island Travel Girl-nothing like a last minute panic, eh? I LOVE the name!

One of the benefits of working downtown -- I finished my shopping today during a rather extended lunch break. :-)
I'm ready. Now all I have to do is lug it home on the bus and then do my grocery shopping...

OUU, the last minute dash to the store. And then you have the rest of the world rushing to accomplish the most important thing they have ever done read trivial crap I wish you luck

NurseExec said...

I've been known to buy Christmas at Walgreens. Including the eggnog! Be careful out there...

Braja said...

But what's wrong with chocolate biscuit outfits...? scratches head...

derfina said...

Pearl-I finished everything BUT the grocery shopping. My arse will be running to the store first thing in the morning for fresh carrots and cream cheese.

Eric-I know, right? What the hell did all those people think they were doing shopping TODAY? The NERVE.

NurseExec-I'm just hoping that they have something besides Bedazzlers and flashlights!

Braja-Not one darn thing that I can think of...I think I did a post on a potential chocolate biscuit outfit of my own a few weeks back!

*smooches* to all!
