this n that

Oh, my goodness it feels so good to sleep in. And by sleep in, I mean 5:00 a.m. Luxury! Priceless! I have no clue what happened after 8 p.m. last night because I was dead to the world. It has taken me several days to recover from the two days I woke up around 2 and couldn’t get back to sleep.

But today is wonderful!

I have to be to work this morning around 8 or so. Scrub the commons and get it all set up for the Bridger Valley Christmas Craft Fair that is held the first Friday and Saturday of every single December in history! I have tried for years to get them to move it to a Saturday in November. It seems to me most people have the majority of their shopping done by December 3rd. Or, am I mistaken?

I’ve been working on a few crafts. Another one of the ‘jingle all the way’ blocks and another ‘savior.’ So fun. My counter looks like a tornado but the hubz is being pretty supportive and keeps asking when the craft fair is. I keep telling him on the 2nd and 3rd. I swear he thinks I have a booth there or something. But no. WAY no. I do have to work it, but I’m not going to be selling there. I just let him think what he keeps thinking so I can justify having the entire kitchen taken over by crafts.

I remember one day my sister, Diane, said something about how our lives turn out to be disappointing. We might have been commiserating with one another and at the end she said, “At least you have your crafts.” I nearly laughed out loud. Hello. It’s not like they are people. Oh. Stop. Wait. Sometimes I do talk to them and give them a special spot and adore them. But, even I know they are not real people that you have real relationships with.


On a lighter note. 140.5! Feeling good.

I’m so looking forward to my bro/sis party this weekend. I haven’t been to one for two years [I think] [Above craft fair is always on the same weekend.] [How’s that for  proper bracket usage?] [Dang, I love brackets almost as much as I love crafts.]

[At least I have my brackets!]

    Yes, Tam, youi are ever so absolutely correct: Ellipsis (plural ellipses; from the Ancient Greek: ????????, élleipsis, “omission” or “falling short”) is a series of marks that usually indicate an intentional omission of a word, sentence or whole section from the original text being quoted. An ellipsis can also be used to indicate an unfinished thought or, at the end of a sentence, a trailing off into silence (aposiopesis). It can also be used at the end of a sentence to emphasize a statement. When placed at the beginning or end of a sentence, the ellipsis can also inspire a feeling of melancholy longing. The ellipsis calls for a slight pause in speech or any other form of text, but it is incorrect to use an ellipses solely to indicate a pause in speech.
    The most common form of an ellipsis is a row of three periods or full stops (…) or a pre-composed triple-dot glyph (…). The usage of the em dash (—) can overlap the usage of the ellipsis.
    The triple-dot punctuation mark is also called a suspension point, points of ellipsis, periods of ellipsis, or colloquially, dot-dot-dot.
