I really shoulda posted this before now, but yesterday was kind of a… - Salvador Dali in a lawn chair.

I really shoulda posted this before now, but yesterday was kind of a panic-and-feel-like-a-worthless-human-being day.

Brooke and I (and hopefully kesterly are going to the flea market in Tupelo tomorrow. It's the one that they have in the old furniture market. We'll also be swinging by whatever stores we need to that Tupelo has that we don't (like Lane Bryant, Sam's for Jennifer perhaps, a decent bookstore).

Would anyone else like to come? jopasm mentioned needing to get more shopping done.

And we'll be painting at the Clay Canvas this afternoon and tonight I think.

Edit: We're leaving early, probably 7ish. Nothing set in stone. Brooke's not answering her phone. We're coming back when we get tired. Probably late afternoon, early evening. People can take multiple cars and leave when one or more is tired.

Edit the Edit: It doesn't open until 9AM. We're gonna leave at 8:30AM from my house.

mood: parched
music: Darling rescue me...

maybe, depends on time leaving/time returning. Getting outta town would be nice right about now.

And well also depends on if there's others that wanna go to actually shop rather than tag along, hehe.

Shopping is the best therapy evar.

Provided a)you have the cash available b)not already needing to save every bit for the impending doom c) going somewhere that I might find something interesting...well ok, lane bryant is interesting, but I won't be buying for myself that's for sure.

Damn, you ppl are finding me out left and right. Soon there will be no secrets I can hide.....bah :P

Even if you don't buy anything, the act of shopping is theraputic.

At least to someone who's body produces estrogen as a main hormone. :p

btw, don't count on me going, bit too early for me, plus I really really REALLY need to do stuff around here, and since it's supposed to be a sunny weekend I think I'll have the opportunity.

Except you're going to a gun show...
alcamar From: alcamar Date: April 11th, 2005 02:29 pm (UTC) (link)
Yeah, he called at 9:30 friday night, needed someone to go with due to his hurt arm and someone to watch the place when he stepped away. His usual guy had to work. I had fully planned on getting laundry done, checking out my car all around, cleaning my kitchen. I had set myself for all of this, was ready to do it even(not gonna try to put it off), and then he needed someone. I hesitated alot, saying I had stuff to do, so he called Chris to see if could go. He called back after a while because he couldn't, so after some hesitating I agreed to go with. Spent most of the weekend there with him, helped out saturday and sunday. It was tiring(especially only getting about 3 hours of sleep that first night), but not too bad and a good bit of fun.

And yes, I'm still alive :P

Did he pay you for your time?
alcamar From: alcamar Date: April 11th, 2005 09:41 pm (UTC) (link)
nope, not directly at least. Did buy breakfast/lunch sorta stuff though, and I did have fun there, it wasn't all just sitting around being bored or such. Granted, I did need to get stuff done, the major deal was a nice weekend that I couldn't use to check out my car, but I did enjoy myself.
lost_angel From: lost_angel Date: April 12th, 2005 12:40 am (UTC) (link)
Not directly? Sounds like not at all. Admittedly, you might be fine with this, but was he going to pay the other guy who had to back out? Is this to curry favor thus being paid through respect or legitimacy?
alcamar From: alcamar Date: April 12th, 2005 06:46 am (UTC) (link)
Well, was saying not directly in that he did buy breakfast/lunch for those two days. No, I don't think that he would have paid the other guy either. It wasn't hard work, it was mostly just sitting there, talking to people that came by, talking with him, etc. I think the other guy that goes with him does it for the company and periodically to go see stuff at the shows, though I might very well be wrong on that account.
Not really to curry favor persay, though I guess in some small portion it might be as such, make myself look good with the parental units or whatnot, but I don't really feel the need to do that, nor do I tend to do such things simply to do so. He needed someone to help out, and even though I had plans, it was just me I was breaking them with. There wasn't anything terribly pressing, I just knew that with it being a good weekend, I could get things done.
The option of going with you guys to tupelo was vetoed by me because I needed to get things done, I didn't want to wake up, but also, there was a number of people that expressed interest in going. And while it would have been fun to have a bunch of ppl roaming around, I didn't figure there'd be enough to really justify another vehicle, especially with gas prices the way they are these days. He was already going out there, Lani was already having to drive to wv to work so that wasn't an issue. If I had gone with, and anyone else that had expressed interest had wanted to go, another car would have been taken, or someone would have stayed out. Me going along just for the ride wouldn't have really been "justifiable" if someoen else had wanted to go to actually shop, and decided not to due to number of people going. I just felt that hell, ya'll had enough people going, I got stuff to do, I'll stick it out here.
Then he needed someone to go with(not just for company but actually be able to do stuff), and while I had the same hesitation that I had with waking up so early with you guys, the extra people going combined with not really "needing" me to go, where as it was only him and he needed someone to go basically won out.
No, I'm not gonna go off every time he wants me to join him for a gun show, I'm not gonna abandon you guys, far from it.
Oh, and poker that night, it was already late getting people to join, so I probably wouldn't have joined anyways. Lani and I were just about to start on supper, hadn't even eatten yet. It would have been very likely quite late that you guys would have been playing I'd figure, and considering I tend(not tonight it seems) to go to bed/get damn tired early, I would have opted out anyways. Considering I needed to get up early to go with him in the morning, twas just another reason, not the only reason.

Whoa whoa, did you think I was mad that you didn't join us for goings-on this weekend? I simply asked if he had paid you or if you were gaining some added legitimacy in father-of-girl-I-like's eyes. It wasn't my intention to take an interrogating tone and I hope it wasn't interpretted as such. I was actually hoping that you did get paid for your presence at the gun show since I know you (well, all of our friends) could use a little extra cash at the moment.

I am by no means angry. I hope you haven't gotten the impression that I was. We had a fabulous time, to be sure, but other than a few snickering comments that you were stuck at a gun show on a Saturday, you and your choices for this weekend weren't mentioned at all. I have no worries that you're going to start deserting us for gun shows.
jopasm From: jopasm Date: April 8th, 2005 07:57 pm (UTC) (link)
I'm sorely tempted, but I'm short on cash. (and I was under the impression this is a "girls day out" type thing). What time are you folk leaving? Returning?
lost_angel From: lost_angel Date: April 8th, 2005 09:01 pm (UTC) (link)
I've edited the entry to include what little information I have.

I would really like to....I haven't been to a flea market in years. Keep me posted.

What time are you leaving/returning?
jopasm From: jopasm Date: April 9th, 2005 03:40 am (UTC) (link)
I'm going to say I probably won't make it. If I do wake up early enough I'll probably take my truck as I don't want to be gone all day. I've got a ton of homework I need to work on tomorrow.

gigafive From: gigafive Date: April 9th, 2005 07:05 am (UTC) (link)
Ginger up, ready and leaving at 8:30 in the moring. I'd like to see that.
lost_angel From: lost_angel Date: April 10th, 2005 12:39 am (UTC) (link)
It sooooo happened!
gigafive From: gigafive Date: April 10th, 2005 03:20 am (UTC) (link)
There's a first time for everything. Good for you.
jopasm From: jopasm Date: April 9th, 2005 05:01 pm (UTC) (link)
Well, obviously I didn't make it. I already wish I had though. Blah.

Oh well. I should really work on homework.

lost_angel From: lost_angel Date: April 10th, 2005 12:39 am (UTC) (link)
We had a nice day. Wish you'd made it but there will be other times.
