The TVM - It's December!

Just as Tolkien and the Inklings used to meet at The Bird and the Baby, come in here to converse about whatever might be on your mind. This is the place for all off-topic conversation.

That's a beautiful picture of the pilgrim chipmunks, Tooks! And they can have all the pecan pie, I don't like it. :P

Calma just called me and I realized I need to be disciplined. I haven't been posting or even reading this blog. I use to get a notice in my email when someone/or I posted. Not sure why it stopped.
Anyhoooo, Calma said Tooks needed my new addy since I moved at the end of September. I would like to send cards to those who participate still if that is all right with you all.
It is similair to the one I had last year. I moved across the street to a one bedroom apartment when my roomy had to go into a health care facility.

Do yo want my new addy here or would you like to poke me and I can email it to whoever wants a card from me. I would like to send a cards even those who are doing ecards.
I had special cards made this year with a picture of my kitty who took the trip over the rainbow bridge this year and want to share with those interested.

Promise I will poke my nose in here more often and not just visit the 365 site.

My address is the same as last year. :)

I shan't be sending out physical cards this year - our family made a pledge to put some money towards my uncle's funeral instead of buying Christmas cards. I will however send out e-cards and I shall do my best to be inventive! :)

Bought some baby stuff this weekend at a second-hand sale - got lots of tiny, tiny clothes! :shock:

Wise, very wise, heliona.
Buying baby clothes at a second hand sale.
They grow so quickly, you know.
Stock up on diapers, too!
And don't forget the bigger clothes either.
I didn't buy all new clothes until my boys started school.
And then only a few outfits.
Goodwill and St. Vincent DePaul were my favorite stores.

Yep, ecards are good...also much cheaper. I think it's now $2.75 to send O/S cards from Oz. I sent 2 Christmas presents and a birthday present to friends in the UK and it cost more than the actual gifts. $46!!! I should have bought on Amazon.uk and do free postage.

Postage is crazy anymore. I tried to buy something in Canada, and it turned out the postage was twice the price of the item!!! gah.

Nice surprise yesterday. Telstra (my phone provider) tripled my download limit. Nice timing as I have the new Foxtel Now box at home. (Foxtel in my home finally!! after working here 10 years.) And before you ask, my landlord wouldn't let me put it in.

Neat you got that triple download, nl. Enjoy!

Been watching the news reports about people going places for Thanksgiving.
The roads are clogged and the airport is as well.
I find it amazing that people put themselves through all this aggravation.
The hassle of getting there and back again. (yes, I did that on purpose)
When we were first married we rented from my mother and lived half a driveway from her.
We never went to her house for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
We wanted to start our own traditions.
But to each their own, I suppose.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!!

Yea, I know what you mean, Calma. When I was just a young'n we went across town to my Grandmother's for holiday meals. Now we all try to stay off the roads for the weekend. :P Too much traffic from traveling and shopping and everything. In PA, Monday is the first day of deer season, so there are hunters heading out to 'camp' by Friday or Saturday.

sheesh.

I've had a very quick gander in a charity shop yesterday and unfortunately everything is Christmas stuff at the moment. :roll: There are a couple of sales going on at the moment (not counting Black Friday sales, because the UK has imported that, just not Thanksgiving) so I may take advantage of them to get some more little stuff. I don't want to get too much stuff right away since I've no idea how big the baby is going to be. I've got my eye on a couple of new things that I've fallen in love with for when the baby's bigger. :D

I guess the Thanksgiving traffic is probably similar to our Christmas traffic - it can be horrendous. I try to get away as early as I can. Christmas Eve is a nightmare!

Happy Thanksgiving to all the Americans! :)

I liked it when we were young and went to family held events. But then I didnt have to do the driving then.
Later when I was in my 20's my aunt and uncle lived next door to my gram and I and we would all go to her house for holidays.
Especially good for new years. She invited the whole neighborhood. (we lived just outside the city limits so there were not alot of people on our street)
No one had to drive or anything and my uncle had a pool table and we had a really good time.

Now it's just me so I need new traditions. A new one starting today. Going to Calma's for dinner!!! Me and Mrs Calendar made the pies.

Happythanks giving to all who celebrate and to others take this day to think about what you have thanks for in your life.

Christmas cards----------siigggghhhhhhh

Yes I will be sending out cards. If I have your address you will get a card from me.

A couple of years ago, I stupidly bought way too many boxes of cards. I don't have that many people upon whom to inflict them. You guys are pretty much it.

But once these are all gone, I promise NEVER to do that again. :)

Hello all you TVMers! I have been a very bad Torcer and have been away for way too long. How is everyone?

I waved to many of you when I was out in the Bellingham/Seattle area this past October. I would have tried to get together with people but we were tapped out when it came to time and visiting. What an incredibly beautiful area....just gorgeous. Had a ton of fun visiting my brother and old childhood friends....and college friends. We drove from Seattle to Bellingham to Coos Bay Oregon to Bend to Portland and back to Bellingham....way too much driving but we saw a lot in 10 days.

I have to say that while I really like my job....it sure puts a damper on my Torcing. Even after a year I'm still adjusting to working full time, and I can't get online to Torc at work, sadly. Then when I come home I rarely get online too much. I must really get my priorities straight.

Miss you all!!!!

There's a part of me that would like to do what Toby did and just stay home. I really try to enjoy the holidays but in recent years I've just not had it in me. :( Working at the paper helped, we decorated and had these little things we'd do...cookie contest (and we got the leftovers!), essay contests, stuff like that and that kinda made it fun. Especially our three day food day, because people brought so much food there was usually left overs. And everyone was a little silly and it was OK. :)

Sigh.

Anyhow, Toby, if you ever move north, you're officially invited to our Thanksgiving. We host the lonelies in the family...they have nowhere else to go. And sometimes that includes friends. :)

I had friends who were in that LA traffic...not for Thanksgiving but just to get home from a gig they were at. He said it was absolutely insane.
