Good Morning & Happy Tuesday,

Apparently the Neiman Marcus Big Book is coming out this weekend.

Today is Tuesday 10/09/V3.3 & it is going to be a GREAT day.

Apparently the book is $15, so I can’t even look in it to see what Ludicrous Expensive item you won’t buy me. So if you happen to get a copy of the book, let me know so I can take a peek. I’m 27 minutes into my day, I’ve got the rice cooking. I’m going to eat breakfast & make lunch.

I have a busy day ahead, working II of my III jobs & going to a meeting or two.

The word of the day is catachresis misuse or strained use of words in error or for rhetorical effect.

We got to go to the hockey game yesterday & I was glad I went.

I got to hang out with Cassandra & actually see the hockey game, haven’t done one of those in awhile. Thank Goodness for that. So we move on from there now & do our thing.

Well I need to be gone in about 1/2 hour, so that means no more blogging & actually doing something else THAT’S important.
