Me: “Okay, but I want to wait until 8 to go, because right now EVERYONE will be shopping after work, and the parking will be ridiculous.”
Caolinn: “How bad can the parking be at Pier One. It’s not like THAT many people go Christmas shopping there.”
Me: “Yeah, but that plaza also has a Best Buy, a Michaels, a Target, and a Mervyns, so the parking is insane.”
Caolinn: “What’s a Mervyns?”
Xavier: “I’m pretty sure it’s shop for wizards.”

Throw a Trader Joes in that plaza and youre in my town
There’s one one block over!
Shopping is a torture at the best of times – and Christmas is definitely NOT the best of times!
My family live on the other side of the country so they get gift vouchers (which i can buy anytime and avoid the crazies) and we’re flying out on Christmas Eve so no presents to buy here either 🙂 – although I think he’s assuming I’ve packed something for him…. ummmm no, isn’t an overseas holiday enough?
Wishing you and yours a wonderful festive season and an awesome New Year.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, TANSIA!!!!!!!!!!! And I agree…traveling in the middle of this is QUITE enough. God, I love a good gift card. Ryan got me one for my favorite restaurant, and I swear it’s more romantic than all the panties in the world. lol
LMAO! Never a dull moment..never a dull moment!:-)
You can delete this one…WP screwed up! grrr…
Pfffffft….it was funny, regardless. 🙂
I’m not sure what I would do if I actually had one! lol
LMAO! Never a dull moment…Never a dull moment!
I believe you about the gift card; all the panties in the world just don’t seem that romantic to me. For one thing, there are billions of them, which would get tedious after the first few truckloads. And for another, a great number of them are being worn by girls (and boys) who may not want to take them off on a whim…
I am now picturing truckloads of panties. You win.
I have a question. What is Mervins?
It’s somewhere you can buy these things apparently…
Given how people drive with cellphones either attached to their ears or looking at the screen because well… They don’t seem to know that cars don’t come with auto-pilots I’m really glad there aren’t any flying cars/hover cars yet. Can you imagine the chaos cause by impatience? I can… And it would involve lots of casualties. 😀
And Mervyn’s? I thought they went out of business?
I think I only went to one once, and it was in the 90s, but I swear that’s what’s in that plaza. Is it Mervyns? Crap, now I have to edit. lol
It might be one of those stand-along sort of franchise stores that kept the name…. But the chain itself? Yeah, it’s been out of business for a while now.
Turns out we still have 5 here…they must be franchise locations. Apparently, we’re the only place that store does well. 🙂
Well holy shit… There may be hope for Winn-Dixie as well 😀
Please tell me Piggly Wiggly is still a thing!?
IIRC, Alabama only… All the stores (including the one I actually remember here in Rhode Island when I was young) also went out of business. According to the wiki — those two stores I remember when I visited Alabama are indie still keeping the name.
There is hope for us all.
I want it to be a bar for Wizards and I want to go there and barter blow jobs for magical powers.
Annnnnd my day is made, and my new fantasy is written for me. Damn it woman, you come through, yet again.
I have a magic power. I can make beer disappear.
I lost that ability around the age of 30. My magic wore off.
Okay, I am all about a shop for wizards. Xavier has the right idea. But given the size of your wizard’s crystal balls, spa curious might want to reconsider.
She’s usually down for some big balls. Which is why I love her…
What can I say. 🙂
OMG! I hate shopping…Christmas or otherwise! Ugh! Until this year! I had a brand new baby niece to shop for! Now that was awesome! I had to put myself on a budget before I got to Dillard’s and bought out the baby dept! 😉
Hope your Christmas was Merry….
Awww, that’s the best! Tip…Macy’s in the middle of summer has mad sales on baby clothes, and you can stock up on complete outfits for like $5, and buy ahead. I do it every summer and stock up on baby shower gifts for the year. 🙂
Oh MAN! Don’t tell me that!! I’m gunna be broke!!! LOL!!
I look at it as “saving” money I’d have to spend elsewhere.
