*yawn* Another exciting Saturday night…

Posted in Crazy Wisdom on Saturday, October 1, 2005 at 9:49 pm by flerly.

It is 9:40 PM and my eyes are burny and closing. My back is sore, from whatever I apparently pulled during last night’s fun, but these Excedrin and Brad’s proffered wine are trying to help.

Last night, came home, climbed into hot bubble bath, finished book — took over an hour and I was pruny and truly exhausted by the time I hit the bed, at about 4. James barely woke me up as he got up early to head out to Road Atlanta, then I was unconscious until noon… which is generally the mark of a good Saturday.

No real plans today… my dishes have arrived, but I’m almost scared to open the boxes. I just think they’re safer in there, and maybe I should just store them for a while. Or… maybe just open one box. I dunno. I made a trip up to Garden Ridge to scope out possible cool scrolly plate hangers to display some, but chickened-out at the two open registers with 20 people in line each. Uninspired as to shopping, or much of anything else but sitting or more sleeping with my back starting to ache, I opted to make good on that second showing of Serenity at a different theater. This one had a preview for AeonFlux.

Anywho, on watching the thing again, I have to say meh… I’m still undecided. May have to see it a third time before I can really decide whether that’s going to oust anything else to become a new top favorite.

    Got service for 12. AND I’ve opened them. AND I’ve used the boxes they came in to pack up my and James’ college dishes and store them. AND we’re using them. AND now I have a healthy E-bay addiction looking for cheap older pieces in the collection that they don’t produce anymore.

    Well, I have some bids in on just some random stuff. Utensil crock, in the old style, they make a new one… a vase, a salad server set that I may get for $40 which retails for $90… As is typical for E-bay, people are trying to sell items that the factory still produces at the same price, so most of the stuff on there is not a deal. There are a couple items the factory stopped making that I know JC Penney still carries that I’m trying to hit on E-bay at a bargain, but no luck yet… mainly these are copper metal items that have the same leaf design. They used to make a big centerpiece bowl on a metal stand, candlesticks, and beer steins, which were big pub glasses which sat in little metal holders with the handle attached.

    Meh… I’m just enjoying time looking at what people have to offer. I saw a set of dishes that made me think of YOU today, though… They’re called “Viewpoint Purple”, park of Mikasa’s “Potters Art” collection. They’re pretty cheap per place setting, too… http://www.mikasa.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?storeId=10001&langId=-1&catalogId=10001&productId=92958&categoryId=46&parentCategoryId=45
