Currently reading: The Palace Guard, by Dan Rather and Gary Paul Gates. It's another book about the Nixon presidency. No, I'm not political or anything; I was just too young (and really didn't care!) about this era in our history. And frankly, I'll be glad when I'm finished with it. There's a lot I'm skimming over, and I'm glad the next book in the box is fiction!
First of all, apologies for going hormonal...I think it's a combo of PMS and pre-menapausal...
I bought my own Christmas present this morning.
Yes, I'm aware Halloween isn't even here! But this is classic Econ 101...law of supply and demand...
For weeks, I've been silently drooling over the pink #18 jerseys (Colts' Peyton Manning for those who don't follow football!) and the blue pj pants with the horseshoes and 'Go Colts' on them. Hubby (typical hubby!) keeps saying 'next week' (hmm...where have I heard that before? Ah yes...last June...). Finally, I appealed to my mother, and we went shopping. Guess what? Found a jersey, but it's only a large, and while we bought it, it's slightly tight. Mom kept the receipt; maybe an XL will come in, and she can exchange it. And no pj bottoms anywhere.
"They're in my store, Mom...can you give me the money and I'll go get them?"
"Sure, honey...no problem."
Today, there's a problem. I couldn't find them anywhere!
"Oh, we had some yesterday..." (sales clerk)
So, I bought some blue plaid ones, with a white horseshoe on the left thigh and a waistband with 'Go Colts' written on it. And I found an XL pink T-shirt with Peyton's name and number on it. Still not XL jerseys. But I'm not giving up hope...somewhere, there's a truck with my desired size, and the items will be on the shelf...and at Super Bowl time, I will be decked out in my pink jersy, blue pj pants, and football earrings, cheering on my team to victory!
And since I have my T-shirt, I'll tell my mom if an XL jersey cannot be found with #18, then I'll take #29...Joseph Adai's number! He was the 'star' of the final playoff game last year, who intercepted the ball and sealed the victory over the Patriots!
In other news, Mom also bought me the Doughtry CD...again, I was about to buy it here, but Walmart was sold out. And I'd already bought Bon Jovi's through BMG, and won't be able to order again for another month (don't ask...it's complicated!)
I saw him at the Indy 500, and he sang "It's Not Over", and the acoustics were so bad, we could hardly hear him. I do have a nice picture of the band!
Anyway, I'm claiming his song "Over You" as my current theme song.
The chorus goes,
"Well I never saw it coming, I should have started running a long long time ago..
And I never thought to doubt you, I'm better off without you, more than you know...
I'm slowly getting closure, I guess it's really over, I'm finally getting better...
Now I'm picking up the pieces spending all of these years putting my heart back together...
'Cause the day I thought I'd never get through, I got over you..."
I also love Heart's "You Ain't So Tough" and Tina Turner's "I don't Wanna Fight".
Okay. Time to move to another track and get some housework accomplished.
