You drive a HUGE MONSTER DUALLY PICK-UP and decide that you can take up TWO parking spots at Best Buy 2 days after Christmas when the place is jam packed! Yeah, Dude, you did a great job backing yourself IN to that spot, and centering yourself over the line! ((What is it with guys that HAVE to back into a spot anyway??)) See the “normal” sized pickup behind the MONSTER one? I just don’t get it ---
Yes, we braved the weather and wandered ourselves over to Greensboro into that jungle they call Best Buy. Take my word for it. DON’T. DO. IT!! Wait a week or so…or two or three! It was a complete zoo!
HOWEVER! We did get this nifty all-in-one remote that is going to make MY life so much easier!
On the LEFT --- This is what I was dealing with before! One for the cable, one for the TV, one for the Audio, one for the playstation we use for netflix streaming..AUUGHHH!! Finding the right remote, or finding ANY of them in the same place has been a nightmare! That little guy on the right? It’s a HARMONY 650! ((Aptly named I must admit!)) And it is programmed via usb and the computer website to replace SO MUCH STUFF! I’m not convinced it was worth a foray into Best Buy, but I’m willing to give it a shot. Now all the other remotes have gone into remote-waste-land in the bottom drawer of the chair side table!
While I was at Best Buy, I should have opted for a new keyboard! I don’t have to look at my keyboard all that often, but any time anyone else sits at my computer they stare down, mouths gaping open, not sure where to peck! Does your keyboard look like this:
Half the letters are missing! I guess I am a nail clacker when I type! I haven’t met a keyboard yet that doesn’t lose its letters to my fingers. On second thought….if I leave this keyboard where it is, it might deter the others from thinking they can occupy my spot
Yesterday I mailed 4 cases of books off to Germany –MEDIA MAIL! I need your quilty prayers and well wishes and thoughts that they arrive safely for my visit to the Black Forest Quilters in Stuttgart by the time I visit at the end of February! I was told it would take about 6 weeks for them to reach their destination. My fingers are crossed. That’s precious cargo!
I also sent off my teacher display quilt for the Road to California Quilt Show! WHooooo! That is right around the corner and I am so excited to be teaching there in January! Southern California in JANUARY!? Bring it ON! I’m already done with this snow stuff. It’s been pretty for a few days, but just like the Christmas Decorations, it’s time to pack it up and put it away for next year!
And that’s all I have to report. I have a week and a half before heading to Nebraska for my first trip of the new year, and I’m going to get in as much quilting as I can between now and then!
PS. If you *ARE* a redneck with a huge monster dually pick-up, please note that I don’t promise to always be politically correct on my blog. I do believe in freedom of speech, just as you believe in freedom to drive stupid vehicles (or wear Bump-its in your hair, or wear Snuggies in public to Costco.) No one is FORCING you to read my blog, and any long emails ranting about how disappointed you are in my opinions will be promptly sent to the spam filter!
