Monday Wonders

Here are the key points for today’s meeting.

  • We weren’t able to find a beard at the dollar store. I know you find that hard to imagine, but I guess there just wasn’t enough room what with all the candles and knick-knacks and whathaveyou. We tried iParty but I’m not paying 8 bucks for my kid to pretend he’s not himself at school. So we’ll just have to leave this experiment on hold for now.
  • Interestingly, we ate dinner at my sister’s house last night and we watched Howl’s Moving Castle. One of the characters, Markl, is a young boy who wears a beard when he goes out in the town, and nobody sees past his disguise. We loved this movie, and now that we’ve seen this one and Spirited Away I have put the rest of Hayao Miyazaki’s movies in my Amazon “to buy” basket.
  • On the way to work I got to wondering…if I got rear-ended by a cement mixer and all the cement came pouring out on my car, and as I got out it got all over me, my hair, etc., how long would I have before my hair and clothes because encased in cement?
  • It’s “Deal or No Deal” night at my house. Jen and Steve (WXLO) interviewed Howie Mandell this morning, and I was thrilled when Steve asked the question I would have asked…Howie did memorize the names of the 26 girls, but they hold the same number case EACH time, so it’s easier to remember them all. I guess I hadn’t paid close enough attention to know that they are always in the same spot. Prior to today, I had hoped that he was just making up names on the fly, because that would be really funny. And now I have to pay closer attention because he has OCD and one of his things is that he doesn’t shake hands with anyone. Interesting problem for a game show host!
  • I did go to the Leominster Filene’s yesterday after getting my hair done and picked up a few things from the 80% off rack. Our store is not having a total clearance the way some of the others are. They are selling off the brands they won’t carry as Macy’s, but there is still a lot of regularly priced merchandise available. But I can say I got 2 pair of Lee jeans for six bucks each! Score! (I should go back and get more, eh?)

  1. The cement thing depends on the temperature, humidity, and mix of the concrete. Send this question into Mythbusters!!!

  2. yes, it’s Nicholle Nicholle, from Leominster =)

    and the cement thing sounds like an excellent trial for the Mythbusters to test!
