BUFFET – French term for a cabinet for holding dining table accessories; also a table from which food is served (from Whitton, Interior Design and Decoration 5e, Prentice Hall, 2002)
A SMORGASBORD OF RANDOM THOUGHTS FOR THURSDAY
Things that Are Currently Irking Me
· Notice to the women of the northeastern United States: flip-flops are SO FIVE MINUTES AGO. Have these women not noticed that the rest of their bodies are completely covered with puffy jackets and the like, and that they’re wearing scarves? You’re not going to get a flu shot, dearies, so listen to your aunt Nina and cover up those tootsies. The only women excused are those post-pedicure and carrying a doctor’s note.
· TransitChek are going promo-crazy in trying to let us know via subway ads and the poor souls they’ve hired to shout at people near train station entrances that we can “Save Up to $1200 a Year or More” by requesting our employers to use the TransitChek system. Has somebody not mentioned to their copywriters that you can either save up to $1200 or save $1200 or more, but that claiming both just simply smells fishy? (At least their website doesn’t mention it)
Things that Have Come to My Attention
· I’m a serious foodie, and I hate cold weather. Though I’ve been rediscovering that during the fall and the winter months that there is absolutely nothing tastier and more comforting than bread dipped in soup. Excuse me for a moment. (Mmmmmmmmmm....) Hee. I’m so easy to please. :)
· I need to start looking into buying corduroy pants, and basically clothes that don’t wrinkle or need to be dry cleaned in order for me to save time and money and not be underdressed for work. If anyone has any suggestions, I’m more than open to them at the moment because I currently find myself vacillating between polyester blends and jeans, neither of which I’m too happy with.
Any other random thoughts you'd like to share? (I'd appreciate your predictions for tonight's Apprentice episode as well)
Stupid Blogger. This is the third time I've had to post this because they keep losing it. Fingers crossed this takes...
