Wait a Minute... it's SUNDAY?!?!

Rats. That's what working Saturday will do for you.

We did some shopping yesterday and today; unfortunately, I really can't settle and see what I have and what I don't until after tomorrow's termite treatment -- damned bugs. I know they're creating havoc in my ceiling and I can't do anything about it like you can with ants or something. No, this requires the very expensive attention of an exterminator, and then we really will need to find out how much actual damage there is (and no, insurance does NOT cover termite damage).



I hates them. Once this is done, and hopefully for good this time, I want to be sure to Spackle and re-paint the ceiling here:




I now wish I had actually ever seen any Twin Peaks, because then this week's Psych wouldn't be so damned confusing. I mean, I know enough about it to know it's a pretty damned good parody (not to mention about half the original cast), but I'm not getting all the jokes.

It does have my current favorite exchange:

"We're not here to judge you. We came to investigate, catch bad guys, and eat pie."
"Not necessarily in that order."
"And it hasn't been."
"No."
"We started with the pie."
"Always."

Some amusing links:

Some years ago Costco carried King Leo Peppermint Crunchy Patties. I tried them and found they were the absolute best peppermint patties I'd ever tasted. Then I found smaller, more manageable boxes at Walgreen's. Joy. So, since these are seasonal items, I waited all year for them to show up again. And I have found... they aren't being sold ANYWHERE. Costco has the peppermint soft puffs, but that's not what I want. Those peppermint patties were to die for, really; and while the web site does do direct sales, the minimum order is $25. Not sure I want to spend that much money, especially since I spent quite a bit more than I should have this weekend already.

Die, evil termites, DIE!

I hate it when things you really like are discontinued. :/

Boy, they better die this time, or I will be pissed (and tempted to contact one of those "investigation" news sites to ask about Truly Nolen's termite treatments...).

And it's not like they're discontinued, they're just REALLY hard to get! It's like I can see them, but I can't reach them.........

Maybe I should try Macy's, then. :P Like I said, used to be at Costco (still is, but not the right KIND) and Walgreen's.

Cost of being a homeowner. Ergh. I don't have a landlord to blame it on. But I did expect better of Truly Nolen. A termite treatment is supposed to last 20 years (like the one that had taken care of the place the first 20 years we lived here), not one year and three months past the end of the warranty period...

i should have been a Twin Peaks watcher -- I can't remember why I didn't watch then. It was a good episode, but I think it would have been a LOT funnier if I knew more about Twin Peaks than the whole "Who killed Laura Palmer?" (Which was, of course, the plot used, so at least I knew that much.)

good luck with Macy's. I'm not sure I've seen it there but maybe. They seem to like Godiva in my area.

yeah that totally sucks about the termites

Understood. Twin Peaks jumped the shark early on, much like Heroes (i.e. one great season then slowly downhill) but it gave us David Duchovny as a transvestite

Yeah, that's probably a long shot. I hardly ever remember we even HAVE a TJ Maxx and I'm not even sure where they are (used to be at Town & Country, but closed long ago).

Ah, well, probably better anyway.

Well, we have Marshall's and Ross, pretty much the same thing. And yes, WAY too much at Ross.

Yeah, I probably could ignore them if it weren't for the (daily growing alarmingly) mud trails hanging down from the ceiling...

Finding the company's candy is apparently easy -- Costco IS selling the peppermint puffs (which are good, I suppose, but lacking in CHOCOLATE, naturally). Walgreen's apparently stopped entirely. COM (above) said she's seen 'em at TJ Maxx, so I guess I can try there, too...
