90-off

hey again!

trying to keep my blog afresh, ’cause i know people get tired of looking at the same old thing when/if they come to visit. you know how it is, house guests and fish and your blog … they all start to stink after 3 days. haha.

ANYways, went on a mini-FAG trip the other night. i LOVE those, btw. usually when we go FAGing, it’s an ordeal. in a good way. we load ourselves up in the FAGmobile and drive to some gawd-forsaken little texas hole in the wall … or maybe a not-so-little-hole. either way, we’re gone for the day and down for the count.

so earlier this week, we did a mini-FAG outing one evening. we had a very simple plan: big lots and then to el chico. or casa el chico as jannetta called it. she was just a little confused at which particular mexican restaurant we landed. had NOTHING to do with margaritas …

back to big lots. they had their christmas stuff marked 90% off. i was NOT in the mood to buy cmas decorations … i barely have everything cleared out of my house from the holidays. but when it hit me how MUCH 90% off really IS, well, i couldn’t resist. i mean, it was practically FREE. it would’ve been a SIN not to buy at those prices. a HUGE sin. and believe me, i know sin. i was raised on it.

so i found a buggy (shopping cart for you yankees) and started loading up. huge ornaments for 40 cents, packages of miniature ornaments for 20 cents, strands and strands and strands of gold beads for 20 cents. snowman boxes and tins … ohmygawd. i couldn’t stop. at 90% off … whatcha gonna do?!?!

okay, so my pics are below. also got a bag of lay’s bbq potato chips which is apropos to nothing. except they were on sale too. but not 90% off.

we did have a great time at casa el chico. haha. our server, cando (which being spanish-challenged, we thought was “can-do” … like he’s a “can-do!” sort of guy) was wonderful and spoke lovely spanish to us, though we didn’t understand a lick of it.

good friends, good food, good bargains, good times. good medicine for all of us, as always.

enjoy the pics. love and hugs to you all, mi amigas and amigos.
