- Hopefully in twenty or so years we will remember to walk in to Mattress Firm (nee Giant) and remember to say, "Just give us you firmest mattress." That's essentially how it went down today, and a Stearns and Foster mattress that goes by "Adele" is coming on Friday. While Gary was wrapping up the details I wallowed my way through all the soft / plush / pillowtop mattresses. I must say, they were all too hot.
- For the past week I've been using my birthday iPad to solve the New York Times crossword puzzles. Last week I could only get about halfway done, but today I completed the whole puzzle. SO proud.
Me: "I guess the AARP is right. Crossword puzzles do improve your brainpower."
The Rest of the World: "It was a Monday puzzle. Monday puzzles are easiest." And this is true.
- I did some brick and mortar clothes shopping today. All I wanted was a plain light turquoise shell. Nope. The hard part was "plain." Had I wanted shells with chains for straps or tigers on the breast or fake shirring I'd have been fine. Then, when I was walking past the purses I spotted one identical to the "new" eBay purchase that came yesterday. The saleslady hustled over.
Saleslady: "That purse is half off!"
Me: "This purse ..." (showing her my purse) "... was two-thirds off. On eBay."
And then I went home on found a used sea-foam shell in my size on eBay. Farewell to the mall, I say.
