 From the packing slip, once my new friend arrived:

Not quite what you wanted? Feeling buyer's remorse?
Like mailing packages (or the cute delivery person)? Whatever the reason,
you can send your books back for a full refund of the purchase price.
Just send an email to help@betterworld.com and we'll get back to you lickety-split.

Unfortunately, we can't offer a refund after 30 days. Not even in leap years.

I feel like I should post something about Never After, and what a fabulous time I had doing it, and what amazing audiences we had, and how grateful I am to have had the chance to be a part of it, and how much I miss everyone from the show.

But I went to Sephora yesterday and saw something that appalled me enough to get me to actually post.

I went in to pick up my free birthday lip glass set (T minus 3 days until I hit the big 4-0! Woooo! Ready or not, here I come. Also, holy shit.) While I was there, I asked a clerk for help finding some 70s disco-style makeup, for when I make it back to the Donkey Show. We looked at some fabulous Urban Decay eyeshadows, and a few other products, and then... then she showed me this. Barbie™ Loves Stila All Doll'd Up Eye Shadow Palette. That's right, Barbie. I'm really confused. Are adult women supposed to want to wear makeup like a plastic doll? Or are they marketing to the 8-year-old hooker crowd? The colors are, in fact, pretty much what I'm looking for for the disco thing... but there is no way in hell I am going to support that marketing decision. (The line of Smurf makeup, for some reason, baffles me but does not quite infuriate in the same way.)

Went caroling with Random Chants last Thursday, and we ended up at the Green Tomato II in Davis (former site of Boloco, O'Natural's, Carberry, and I forget what all else.) They gave us free meatballs, chicken parmigiana, eggplant parmigiana, pasta, and garlic bread. I had about 4 helpings of the eggplant -- and I don't like eggplant. The owner seems really nice, and he's being great about helping out the Davis community, so please go there and try to keep them in business!

Saturday night we had our first hands-on foley rehearsal for the PMRP New Year's Eve Orpheum show. I get to play with the jell-o, whee! And we came up with a really great new way to make the "great big squishy splat" noise the script calls for.

Yesterday Kerri and I went to the Bazaar Bizarre. We spent over half an hour waiting in line to get in, but it wasn't *too* cold out, and in addition to our own fabulous company we chatted with a fun Canadian woman in line behind us, who told us how her tramp stamp of a maple leaf has more than paid for itself in free beer. One we got in, we spent about 3 hours wandering around the 148 vendors. Wow. We both collected a huge stack of business cards for places we want to remember. I didn't buy much, just a set of ligature trading cards (it's a font geek thing), a masala chai-flavored lip balm (which smells so amazing I wish I had someone to kiss!), and a small button as a gift for a friend. Oh, and we got to see the fabulous [livejournal.com profile] missmhart shilling for the Derby Dames. I'm really hoping to make it to her match on March 21, must mark my calendar now.

I never got around to getting one before the election, and now, even with the millions of options out there, I could find anything I really liked.

So I made one.

Check out the cafepress store if you want one for yourself!

Web site Restaurant.com sells gift certificates to participating restaurants all over the country, often offering deeply discounted prices. Right now the site is selling $25 gift certificates for $10, which isn't a bad start, but from now until Halloween, entering TREATS at the checkout applies a second 80% discount to the sales price. The result is a supremely cheap $25 gift card for just $2. Want to aim higher? The same discount applies to more expensive gift cards as well, so you can snag a $50 gift card for $4, $100 for $8, and so on. Be sure to read up on the participating restaurants before buying and check the fine print for the restaurant you plan on using it at so there aren't any surprises when the bill comes. A Restaurant.com gift card may restrict you to a minimum food purchase, for example. In the midst of financial apocalypse, this seems like a nice way to save a few bucks but still enjoy a meal out.



(Rudy's is on the list, very handy for Firsties!  Valid with a minimum purchase of $15. Excludes Friday-Saturday)
