I was super lucky and I got the wonderful polka dotted plates and mugs from my parent's (thanks Mom and Dad!). Paul got me an ipod nano with the little TV in it! Perfect for when my travel schedule picks up!
Today I did all sorts of errands, went to the dentist, bought some Christmas gifts, went grocery shopping. Now I am exhausted. I am not a good errand runner. If I go to more than one store, I am wiped out for the day. I think I might treat myself to a little rest today and read a little bit. I don't have any pressing work which feels sooooo good!
So funny to read about Project Runway! I set up one
for a Valentine's Day party a year ago at work and
called it Project Funway. Every team of 2 got a paper grocery bag with 2 yards of pink tulle, 2 yards of aluminum foil, 2 yards of string and a few sections of newspaper. On the table were scissors, tape and staplers. Each team had 1/2 hour to complete an outfit and then model it. So the person who wasn't wearing an outfit used a pencil and 3x5 card to write and read off the description of their creation as their favorite modeling music played in the background.
I had burned a CD with songs like ZZ Top - She's Got Legs, Madonna's Vogue, etc. It was fun, fun, fun - and everyone just laughed their heads off.
Oh, and incredibly inexpensive to pull together.
