bitter american

I was shopping for wine tonight and saw this package of ale.  I liked the name and the reference to space history.

A soothing (to me) image of downtown Greensboro, NC (North Carolina), USA.

Almost all are are imports from MyOpera.  The true count is actually much higher because I trimmed my opera blog by about a third earlier this year.

It’s been insane!  😛

season’s greetings – happy holidays

Just ramping up for my own little War on Christmas.   😈

middle-of-the-night shopping run

I went by Target at 1 AM Friday morning just for the experience of being in a store at such an hour and to see what kind of people were out shopping at 1 AM.  I was just there to observe, so that made it OK, though I did buy two items.  lol.  The other shoppers looked fine, though some were drunk and loud.

Some of the prices were very good.  I looked at televisions and the Nooks.  Some were tempting, especially a Hello Kitty flatscreen TV, but I didn’t really need either in spite of trying hard to rationalize a purchase.  I had to fall back on an old shopping mantra:  sometimes the best way to save money is not to buy.  I ended up walking out with just a carton of orange juice and a pair of sweatpants.  The total was about $10.

Here is how the store looked after midnight.  I like how the parking lot light affected the camera.

There’s almost no limit as to how large it can get.  I just call it “the bucket”.

my last post at my opera

I started at my opera in September of 2001.  It was the best Internet blogging experience ever.  My Opera is officially closing on March 1st, 2014.  I’m now transitioning to WordPress.  WordPress was very ready for the My Opera closure with blog importing tools and instructions.  I have archived my old blog here at WP.

I just made my last post at My Opera after a nice 12-year run.  I hope for some fun and friendship here at WordPress.
