Every time anyone says "Maverick". Drink.

Every time anyone says "here's the bottom line". Drink.

Every time anyone uses a colloquialism for the middle class*, Drink.

Anytime someone speaks in absolutes (Right, Evil, etc...) Drink.

Okay - so - I know this is heavy handed towards Palin, but honestly we TRIED to come up with some for Biden. Honestly, we did - but he didn't give us very much material to work with.

OSSM Thrift Store find! YAY!

Mr. Man left work a little late today, so I had a little bit of down-time between dropping munchkin off at practice and going to pick him up. At first I figured I’d meander over to the station to pick him up, but then I got this feeling that I really should stop in Goodwill and poke around – and boy am I glad I did!

So there I was, poking around in Goodwill – without really enough time to dig for buried treasure; so just kinda cursorily browsing through, when I see this lamp sitting over on top of one of the clothing racks. I head over to it to take a peak and pick it up. Price tag reads: $19.99. Hm. Thats an awfully ‘spensive thrift store lamp. But it’s pretty and seems solid, which was when I turned it over and saw that it was a Pottery Barn lamp! Yay! So I said “Lamp – yer comin home with me!” Chucked it under my arm and marched to the check-out lane.

I need to clean the shade up a little bit and replace the bulb-fitting, since it only takes those itty bitty incandescent bulbs – in fact, I may replace the shade as well, since the fabric has a couple of teeny snags, but overall I’m stoked at such a great find and totally had to share. Here’s a picture:

Beautiful, no? Yay! :-) :-)
