You people (and you know who you are) who crab and moan about Manny and say they should trade him? Pthbthbthbth. I love Manny. At least once a game, I say it out loud. I love Manny. Manny being Manny doesn’t bother me, either. I don’t see what the big frigging deal is, and was actually shocked when they booed him the other night.
Good for Manny, winning the game for us today. All the people ranting about Manny can kiss my butt. Twice. Jim Rice was dead-on in his post-game comments – you can’t trade Manny unless you get someone just as good or better than him. Manny is a good player, and that’s that. So what if he does “Manny” stuff. What’s the problem? Jealous that you aren’t him? Cause I’ll just bet all those people who’ve been ranting on the phones this week have been or done worse at their own jobs. Boston fans had better get a grip. And the Sports Radio guys should take a Valium.
Also, I dropped a bunch of money at Filene’s today, and darn it, I’m happy. Here’s another “pthbthbthb” to Federated for the impending wipe-out of a great chain.
I just wanted to weigh in. Not that it makes a difference. But according to a news story, Filenes is history, to be sucked up and chewed out into Macy’s mush.
I don’t shop at Macy’s. I shop at Filenes. Period. And you say “Customers have told us they want the fashion and affordable luxury they find in Macy’s stores,” Federated said in a statement.” Ya, and? How was the question worded to those customers? Did you ask “Tell us, do you want the fashion and affordable luxury you find in Macy’s, or do you want me to squeeze lemon juice in your eyes?”
Sounds to me like you asked people you found wandering around in the aisles at Macy’s. Can you show me evidence that you walked into a Filenes store and asked those shoppers which they prefer? I’d be very very shocked if they said they preferred Macy’s. If they did, why are they shopping at Filenes? I believe you asked three people who had never set foot in a Filenes. If they had, they’d have known that Filenes is very affordable, actually. If I can afford to shop there, anyone can.
Darn it, that means the local store is going to dump all the stuff I like for the Macy’s stuff that doesn’t fit or looks all frumpy. Thanks so much Federated. If you’d kept Filenes, at least you’d be getting some of my money. But if you replace it with Macy’s, I’ll just find somewhere else to spend my money.
We took Phantom to puppy training class last night, and when we got home at 7, the power was out. I could have been out for a minute, or 60 minutes, given that we weren’t home. It didn’t come back on until almost midnight.
So now I’m wondering if the food in the fridge and freezer are okay. The fridge was opened very briefly once, at about 8pm. The freezer wasn’t touched.
I’m not in the mood to replace everything in there again. Actually, maybe tossing everything in the freezer would be a blessing. There’s a lot of stuff in there that I should throw, and just don’t have the heart to. If I had to toss everything, there would actually be room in the freezer for stuff that we actually *want* to have in there. I really should make a point to go through it the night before trash day this week. I’ll put that on the old “to do” list.
For the record, Junior was about to lose his mind from the power being out. He was very unhappy because he’d had his evening planned in his head, and the whole thing was impossible. He kept asking for things, and we’d say “we don’t have power”. I don’t think he had ever thought to think about how 98% of the things we have in our house run off electricity. When he found out I couldn’t boil water to make him some pasta, he asked me to microwave something. Dude, no power is no power.
I hope we didn’t miss anything good on TV last night. Was Mythbusters a new episode?
Sorry if I’m a little absent. I’m very focussed on finishing my project – I only have until Friday. And I officially started to freak a bit about leaving here. I have a 4 week contract starting monday at a different company, but after that, who knows.
I guess I need to put a little more effort into the job hunt and less on the site. So bear with me, ‘kay?
No, I’m not talking about the weather. I’m talking about the warm fuzzy feeling I got last night and again this morning as I was driving past the new Target to go home and I thought “So, Jody, do you need anything at Target? Cause if you do, it’s right there and you can just go in and buy it right now!” Woo!
See, we traditionally drive up to Nashua to the Target at the Pheasant Lane Mall. I’d go to the one behind the Solomon Pond Mall, but after work, I’m usually racing home to pick up Junior. But this one…I can pick up Junior and take him with me! How bleeping awesome is that? You have no idea. Ever since Bradlees (and then Caldor) closed, there hasn’t been a retail store that I would consider “close.” Walmart, which I don’t like anyway, is just too far. I’m a homebody. Once I get home after work, I like to stay there. So if there are errands to be done, they MUST be done on my way home. Do you see the need this store is filling for me?
Plus, it’s open at 8:00am. That means I could conceivably stop before work. Holy cow! It’s like they read my mind.
Okay, enough about Target. I know some people are furious that it’s there, and that the traffic will get worse and worse. I will be somewhat impacted by the traffic where I live too, I know it. But if we’re all lucky, 75% of the people going there will use the route 2 exits that are RIGHT next to the shopping plaza, instead of the already-busy backroads, and that will make it all okay!
