Yesterday, all of the sudden, my ankle sprain stopped hurting. (The tendonitis from having to walk funny for nearly three weeks is another matter entirely.) So to celebrate, I decided to get out for a bit. While I still wasn't up to doing the supermarket, I figured I could put my ankle to the bus test. It went sprong getting on a bus that fateful day. I decided to go downtown to Quick-Chek and CVS to get a few things I needed.

Right before I left, I realized the woman who runs the Pagan shop downtown had interest in a few things I've made. So at the last minute, I go to grab a few samples of the tarot card purification bags I make and right in the box, where I had looked FIVE TIMES ALREADY, were my glasses. At the bottom of the box. Mind you, I took the bags out five times to look for my glasses, because the box was under the coffee table and it was the most logical place for them. Were they there the five other times I looked? Of course not. This just confirms my theory that the coffee table has a portal to the fourth dimension.

I get down there, I get the things I need from CVS, I go to the Pagan shop and hang out for a while. OK, to nearly closing. She picks out a sample and gives me some herbs as a barter. Nice trade. So I decide, this is a great day. My ankle is holding up and not getting too very swollen. (It will get swollen anyway from the sciatica and acupuncture is all that helps.) Things I use on a regular basis are buy one, get one free at CVS. I decide this is a lucky day! So when I get to Quick-Chek, I get a lottery ticket. Guess what? Not one number matched the drawing! Oh well. At least I can walk, I found my glasses and I'm stocked for a while on a few things. Three out of four isn't bad.

You are the third person I know who has done something to thier ankle in the past two weeks. It is a trend! lol A friend of mine at work broke hers about 3 days ago. And readytolay3 did hers as well.
I wish we had cool stores in my town. The town folk here would freak out if we had a Pagan shop. I have to go to the near by college town for that.

It's an epidemic, I'm telling you. About a week and a half ago, the woman from one of the apartments upstairs saw me hobbling and said, "not you too!" Seems she did something to her foot and ankle and she might have to have surgery. That's going to be fun, considering she lives on the third floor.

A part of me would love to open a Pagan shop in a town where the locals would flip out. Just to see how long before they started vandalizing it, or tried to burn it down with me inside. I have been in shops both in the city and the suburbs where someone will come in and start preaching how we're all going to Hell. Just to try to cause trouble. Which they never get. They kind of bug out when they tell me they'll pray for my soul and I tell them, "thank you. Because if you're right, I'm going to need all the prayers I can get."

More info on the Tarot bag please. Carol reads, and I'd love to get something nice for her. Glad to hear your ankle is getting better. I still say it was the underpants gnomes. I got two mentions in his latest blog. Not by name, but the calling him an ass thing and the tigger thing. (which I think Dys coined, but I use extensively). I'm beginning to think he doen't care for me too much. Joe

But underpants gnomes only steal underpants! Gremlins from the fourth dimension!

I'll send you information on the bags. They're great after reading for someone toxic, especially.

As far as your friend, I'm seeing a love match, I have to tell you. You two are up each other's asses so deep, it must be love. When you get to Massachusetts, can I be flower girl? *ducks*

Thanks. Yes, I'm wondering if found is the right word myself.

Why do you think I ducked when I said that? I am a bit bored, but he's rather boring, quite honestly. Watching mold grow sounds almost better in comparison.

those pesky lil gremlins really know what the important things are and I swear they can predict exactly when you'll need them...bastids!!

Yeah. but he wants a debate so much, and I just am not the debating kind. You are so good at it. I can do it, but it's not my most favorte thing, and I have a disturbing tendency to go for blood early just to end it. Effective for a verbal war, but not really fine debating form. I would love to see you nail his ass, and I KNOW you can. In the art of war, every weapon has a distinct purpose. You are so good at what you do, and you love doing it. It's going to be fun seeing you in action.

You can't debate someone who isn't capable of cognisant thought. All a person like that can do is prattle on with talking points, but not tell you WHY they feel like that. It quickly degenerates to the point where Godwin's Law comes into play.

Okay! Glasses back, walking...sounds great.
The lottery was probably a good thing...there is a saying..."Thanksgiving for every wrong move"

Thinking of closet gnomes.. my left ballet slipper has been missing in the closet for 4 months now.

I haven't given up hope, but that it still hasn't shown up after I stopped looking is frustrating.

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/18/2006 11:18 am:
Yeah, but the powers that be could have let me get four numbers and a few bucks. I would have been happy with that.

Your closet has a portal too. You need a cat to go in and visit that portal and retrieve your slipper. Cats are the only ones small enough to fit into the portal and smart enough to bring back what's missing.

the other day I bought a phone card. Couldn't find it. My friend swore I put it in my purse, which I had no memory of doing. Took everything out THREE times. No phone card. Ripped apart luggage, my temporary room, her car, everything. No phone card. She forced me to look in the purse again. Voila. Phone card. I felt like friggin' Penn Jillette.

And YOU'RE younger than me!

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/18/2006 11:19 am:
Your purse has a portal to the fourth dimension. Think about how many times you've known something like your lipstick is in there and you can't find it. Then when you look again, it reappears. The portals are everywhere.

Well, Pan *does* come with a don't ask/don't tell disclaimer in the user guide. It's there in Volume XVI, Chapter MLXXXVIII subsection V par I sub par MCCCLXVIII, annot. cviii at the back of the user manual. )

Glad to hear the ankle is getting better!! The glasses were returned due to those gremlins pulling double shifts over my house. I think they even hid my cat for a little while. At this rate its just a matter of time before my room eats all of my clothes.


MissAnnThrope replies on 6/19/2006 2:52 am:
Thanks. Except I'm trying to overdo it now, as I got so backed up in the laundry.

Now, what do the gremlins at your place have to do with my glasses? Or have you had my glasses all this time and you never told me?

As I told shylena, cats are small enough to fit into the portal to the fourth dimension. The gremlins don't hide the cats, the cats escort the gremlins to the third dimension, to do damage.

can i borrow your coffee table....I'd like to see if it has all my stuff too...

MissAnnThrope replies on 6/19/2006 4:32 pm:
If we can get decent shipping rates, sure! But remember... With the portal comes responsiblity. So when socks of mine that have gone missinsg for a few months turn up, please be sure to send them back with the table. If any old boyfriends of mine appear with the table, feel free to keep them, or banish them back to the fourth dimension.

(What the fuck is this shit..?? *rolls eyes*)

Thanks ready. I hope your ankle gets better soon too. And that you can stop being a prisoner yourself. It really does suck.
