Jingle All The Way Home

Why I love a 70% off sale....original price, $369. Take home price, $114. Merry Christmas to me! Suddenly, I have a little more ho, ho, ho in my holiday attitude. It makes the best frozen drinks evah, be it a margarita or a good old cherry slushie, and I've been eyeballin' this puppy ever since the Going Out of Business Sale started at Linens 'N Things about six weeks ago. I would have waited a little longer, because I can be as tight as the bark on a tree when it comes to frivolous toys, but this was the last one, and they were getting ready to ship it somewhere else. Jingle bells, jingle bells.........everybody sing along.

NOW you've got the Christmas spirit!

Popped back over to let you know that "waterproof" coveralls are a gloves, hat, boots, and gas mask. We walked past the "garage" when the animals are housed and I nostrils almost blew off.
BUT, the good news is, if we are good workers, we'll be promoted. So, start practicing your high kick (in your boots. I'm sure we can make it to Rockette status.
BTW, how tall are you?
See you in NYC.

OH I AM SO JEALOUS! I bought a cheap imitation at Target last summer and finally broke it out of the box - to discover it was indeed "broken." Sniff sniff. I'm coming over. I'll bring some tequila...
