Notes from Target and the trip back and forth 
19th-Nov-2009 01:04 pm
* I have achieved pants! No, this is actually an achievement. I'm 4'11" and I have an ass. There is no standard size for that. The pants are too long, but they'll be passable with my chunky-heeled Fluevogs.

* I always forget how much I actually like driving. Note that I hate city driving! But this is pretty much suburban driving, and that, rural, and highway can be fun. Once you get out of Boston, there are far fewer people actually trying to kill you.

* This was apparently "take your infant to Target and block the entire aisle with their doublewide stroller" day. I was not informed. Next time I shall have to borrow a baby.

* Bought canisters, a colander set, and a Pyrex cutting board for my "nothing gluten shall touch these ever or I will keel you" zone.

Am now debating whether a walk to Glutenous Minimus would perk my somnambulariffic ass up or wear me down. It is probable that I'll require a nap before jumping on the cleaning.

I kind of remembered/figured out what somnambular meant but I wanted to make sure so I highlighted-right-clicked-searched-Google-for somnambulariffic. I wanted to let you know that your blog entry was the only hit for somnambulariffic. :)

Yay! I am trailblazing silly new words.

Perky Somnambulariffic Ass is my new band name.

*snort* this is a challenge we face regularly with Kritter. We call it the dancers challenge. *nod*. For lo, she is short, and she is wee, but she is muscular in all those places that dancers are muscular, which makes it challenging to find clothing to fit properly.

Sewing is a good skill to have.

I have a basic no-frills sewing machine on my Amazon wishlist, as I constantly need hemming and love simple swirly skirts that I could totally make myself.

I was looking at sewing machines on Amazon, and then decided that I really would like to go in person and touch them before deciding on one, so at some point after March or April or so I'll probably start looking. I'm leaving my serger here with 'Sea and will be replacing it with a straight sewing machine.

There's a sewing-machine shop in Davis Square. :)

It should be pointed out that the last two cities you've lived in are Atlanta and Boston, which is a very skewed sample of city driving, as they're two of the worst.....

Well, yes. I think you have to be the kind of crazy I'm not to drive successfully in Boston.

I got what seems to be the only pair in the store that's not skinny-cut or stretch.

Can you combat the double wide strollers with some fancy shopping cart action? Wear earbuds, so you can ignore complaints with impunity.

I absolutely hate buying pants! I am 4'11" as well, and everything is always a few inches too long. It's so frustrating!
