Not Leaving My Rabbit Hole yet......

I thought I might be able to climb out of the rabbit hole today, but "it ain't gonna happen". LOL I really think I am losing what few marbles I have left. And I am getting sick on top of everything else. All I have done today is cough and cough and cough.

I didn't get up until 1 this afternoon, and after I had some coffee and my heart started beating I decided to make another Web Sampler Block. So I am happily sewing along...not having to take any stitiching out, YEA!!! and Aud walks in and says we are gong to Bravo's, an Italian restaurant not too far from where we live.

Well, that is fine with me. They have scallops with ricotta gnochhi and spinach and sweet potatoes. That dish is wonderful!!! So I order this, and eat too much of it and since I need to make a couple of stops before we get home, I head for the ladie's room. The name for woman in Spanish is Senora, right?, and the name for a man in Italian is Signore, right? I have been in this restaurante lots of time, but TODAY, I walked into the men's, lol. As I am opening the door I think, gee this is the first ladies' room I have ever seen that is closer to the hall than the men's! About that time it dawns on me what I have done. ROFLOL Thank God there was nobody around!

Then we go to a couple of the stores that sell Nintendo DS games because I am looking for a new one. I bought myself one a couple of weeks ago, and ordered one for Aud from Amazon, but I didn't get her the same game as I have, and that isn't going to work, so I have to find this game. Wrong! Can't find it.

Then we go to Braum's, OK's place to get milk and stuff like that and we pick up some milk and stuff like that, and then go to Starbucks for some coffee.

I love Starbucks, and I have a card that automatically gets recharged when it get below $10. There is a long line at the drivein window and I place my order and it takes a while to get to the window. So I hand the girl my card and tell her, "don't put it on the Visa side, put it on the Starbucks side". My card is a Starbucks Duetto Visa card and I get more points when I use it at Starbucks. She says ok, and rings it up and hands it back to me, and sure enough, she has charged it on the Visa side. So I ask her why she did that when I had told her to put it on the Starbucks card. And she says "You gave me an Amazon card, it doesn't have a Starbucks side". And I had. Wouldn't you think that she would have said something? All I could do was shake my head and drink my coffee. Of course by now Aud is dying with laughter.

My movie review for tonight is Gone, Baby Gone, a very good movie! I highly recommend it. I still have Rendition and The Eastern Connection ( think that is what it is called) to watch. Will let you know the results on those later.

I do have some quilty things I can post, and some quilty pictures, but I think I will wait until the the dirt quits falling on my head, lol.

SO I have decided I am going to stay down here in the rabbit hole for another day or so and watch movies and see if the world turns right side up again before I venture out, lol. Meanwhile, I will just read your blogs, I am sure they are more interesting than mine right now anyway, :>)

"Wouldn't you think that she would have said something?" Oh don't get me started on 'customer service' or the gigantic lack of it . . .

I love to stay in my 'rabbit hole,' too - but I have to go out today. *drat*

Julia said...

I agree, she should have said something to you. grrr

You are making me laugh, but know that I am laughing with you not at you. I can laugh because I have been where you are many times and I am sure I will go there again. lol

Hope you feel better. By the way, I am tagging you so read about it on my blog.

Wonder why she didn't say something after you told her what side to use? I mean honestly? Geesh but then well that would have been good customer service to have actually said something to you before she rang it up? Okay we won't go there...

I started getting sick over the weekend as well, I have managed to keep from getting this stuff going around all winter, well it seems to have got me. Here is to us both getting rid of this fast.

Your day certainly had a lot of amusing twists and turns & I salute you for venturing out at all. :D Maybe, though, you should hide for a bit longer until life straightens itself out. :D

Rabbit holes must be pretty cozy places. Look at how cute the critters are that emerge from them!! I promised myself this morning that I wasn't going to post on my blog until I got my BOM blocks done. Guess what I will be completing within the hour???? ROFL Hang in there, Perry.

OMG for as sick as I have been for the past 5 days all I can imagine is you walking into the men's room with your purple hair and what would have happened if someone would have been in there. Stop making me laugh, my throat hurts too bad. I am sorry you're not feeling well but I needed some to share this flu with.

I'm sorry that you are getting sick....again!! You need to hunker down and get better. Stay in the hole a bit longer.
The gal at Starbucks probably wasn't even listening to you when you were speaking to her. They usually aren't.
How FUNNY that you went into the mens bathroom. I've done that before myself. Just say you were delirious cause your sick!!!
Get well!!!

Hope you feel better soon! That's funny about the men's restroom incident!

Karen said...

Hope your cough is better.

I was in a public restroom once in a stall when I noticed men's shoes in the next stall with the feet facing the wall instead of the door. I got out of there fast.
A local Mexican restaurant here has the Spanish name for women on the outside of the door. As you come back out of the restroom, the door says "Men". Sure gets lots of laughs.
