Tuesday's Orts--May 15, 2012

Tuesday's Orts--bits and scraps of thoughts and events that land here...
  • Son Nick swapped out big and bulky furniture for more compact pieces for his new digs, including a dresser I offered which has been my stash storage for a few years. However, the plastic bins which were perfect for that dresser don't fit in the big and bulky furniture as I assumed they would.  Oops!
  • I just realized yesterday afternoon that the egg dish I made for Mother's Day Sunday brunch was lacking the diced ham I specifically purchased for it.  Oops again!
  • Traffic Rant:  Knuckleheads who have 70 empty parking spaces to choose from in the lot but pull into the ONE spot left open between your vehicle and another. 
  • Lunchtime quote from Barb, regarding fashion trends:  "You can't call it Retro if you were there and wore it the first time". 
  • The games in London are coming up fast.  Our local Ralph's grocery store is in the spirit:
I couldn't resist the Olympic rings!

Why would you resist... two for $7! Looks like the word of the day is "OOPS". I'll keep that in mind.

Now that display took some thought and organization, I'm impressed too! That storage oops sounds like an opportunity to me.

How about when your sitted in a movie theater with loads of seats free yet they sit next to or right smack in front of you? I heard ya with the car one.

"You can't call it Retro if you were there and wore it the first time". Oh my goodness . Too funny!

Quilter Kathy said...

Very fun display...very creative!
'Knuckleheads' is a word you don't hear much these days!

Kathie said...

love that display, creative and don't you see a quilt in there?
I agree with the parking lots, why do people park like that????

Kate said...

Love the fashion quote! Agree completely with this week's traffic rant.

Someone spent a lot of time on that pop display - very clever!
