1. What in 2011 has proved to you that you are a survivor?
Despite it, I am surviving. Because what choice do we have but to survive? And besides, there are high points too...like a granddaughter to get to know!
2. Have you ever stayed online for a very long time waiting for someone?
3. Are REALLY ready for the holidays?
4. Did you have an imaginary friend as a kid?
5. What niche network do you watch the most?
6. Have you ever seen the ocean?
7. Have you ever been hospitalized?
8. What do you think of the US Republican candidates for president?
9. Could you imagine life without a computer?
My mother called today to ask if I could do some shopping for her. We tried in town, but everything was really too expensive, so we went out to Target. While there I decided to check the fat lady section to see if there were any bright, cheery Christmas shirts, sweaters or sweatshirts that I could buy so I could wear something other than my Santa sweatshirt (if you look at the slide show I made yesterday, you can't tell from any of my pictures what year it is because I'm wearing the same shirt every Christmas!)
Well, I got to the fat lady section of this enormous, gargantuan sized store. The fat lady section takes up less room than the section devoted to gifts for your pet. Lemme tell you, I thought I had walked into the "mourning section" of the store. There wasn't a single thing there that didn't look like something I'd wear to a funeral. Apparently Target thinks fat ladies only wear dark purple, grey, black, and navy blue. There were a couple of red things and even those looked somber.
Not only that, but everything seemed to sag, to be hung on the hangers crooked. There was nobody shopping there and I'm not surprised. There wasn't one thing I saw that wasn't just downright UGLY, not even remotely festive.
Maybe fat people are supposed to hide until the new year. Hey--doesn't that fat guy in the reindeer-pulled sleigh have a bright cheery outfit to wear? Target? Are you listening????
It looks like it's the Santa sweatshirt for me again this year. At least it
fits and is comfy.
