get it while its hot!

here goes misty ann enjoying her third glass of "georgia scarlett," a gift from the parents at thanksgiving last week. i'm reflecting about the insanity that was "black friday."

so, according to my sources, most of the outlet stores in the area (and by in the area, i mean in BFE years away from anywhere near where i live) opened at midnight. i'd be very curious to know just how many people were out then shopping. and how good the sales were. i did hear from a friend who hoofed it to best buy at 5AM that by the time she got to the front of the line "all laptops were sold out" and that half the line left. how much time did these people waste sleeping tents for this?
this is crazy talk! there are kids in tents outside circuit city! well, i don't know about kids but how awful would that be? seriously? i myself did not venture out on black friday, as i never have, as my mother never permitted it. ever. it's just ridiculous. i don't know what her reasoning was but mine is definitely in the "my time is much more valuable than the hundred or so dollars i could save on a plasma tv" variety. she even stated, so astutely, how happy she was that she no longer had children at home that required the latest and greatest in electronic asshatery for christmas.

i'll just say this.

those items that i'm interested in either giving or receiving for christmas rarely go on sale.

this, for example.

i give these candles nearly every year to those nearest and dearest. they are absolutely fantastic and smell magnificent and cost approximately fifty-two dollars all the time, without fail and never ever ever disappoints. so this year, when you've got a little gift to give, stop by your local fabulous pamperings store (like boutique serenite in montreal where i used to shop when i lived with our friends to the north) and pick up a smattering of these fantastic scented bougies. barney's co-op carries a selection of diptyque candles at both their georgetown and chevy chase locations. my personal favorites are the colored ones: figuier, tuberuese, baies, opopanax and gold pomander. work it out. happy shopping. with or without discount insanities.

this is better than fashion house.

so here's the part where i let you know what's been going on that's kept misty ann from posting for nearly a month.

we'll begin at the beginning. back in the summer i sort of began hanging out/fooling around with this friend of a friend. ex of a friend even. i didn't know at the time that he had been in a long term relationship for about four years. wow. then he moved to texas. i thought it was all over and done with and i could stop feeling like a dirty mistress.

he invited me to new york. i went. his significant other found out. i got a nasty email telling me to back off. ok, i get it. i'm all done. only guy continues to call me, email me, contact me, beg me to come to new york again. to come to texas, etc etc. misty ann is really not feeling it. there's too much drama. but i talk to him occasionally and in doing so i develop more feelings for this guy. it's getting messy now. i'm thinking, wow so he just needs to end this relationship and then i'll move on in. i'll maybe even move to texas! wow. crazy talk much. so i'm telling a friend all about this, and he's like, you know, if you want this, and need to know how he feels, just ask him straight out. well, i can't very well do that. so he takes it upon himself to fill in guy as to all this. my feelings, moving to texas, etc. well, guys significant other finds the email. which includes straight up QUOTED conversations with me and my friend. now, misty ann is out a few fridays ago with her best girlfriend, who gets a text message from guy's significant other (they are friends), threatening me with death if i don't quit it. so of course, i had to spill the beans to best girlfriend. she plays the dumb card with the significant other and runs some serious damage control, for which i am extremely grateful. seriously. i think all is going well at this point. but i call best girlfriend on friday to go out, and she sends me back a message explaining that she's been doing a lot of thinking and that she will no longer be my advocate and stand up for me when all i do is lie and screw her ex (yeah) over and over again. she and i are OVER. yeah.

so that's basically the gist of it all. nice.
