I had made a three-hour reservation for the car for no reason I could remember so I went to bed bath and beyond and once again forgot the coupons so the coffee maker I was thinking of getting is still there on the shelf waiting for me to remember the coupon. 20% off anything is nothing to sneeze at. I should inspect it and make sure that cuisineart coffee makers are not exempt. I did buy yet more candles (not sure what is going on here) and some boxy things to set on the table with the candles but I kind of wanted a little shelvy thing but probably needed to go to the container store for that but after I got out of nordstrom rack it was time to bring the car back. see I got held up at ups because they don't open till 9:30 the lazy bums and thus I did not get to shopping proper till 10am.
found two shirts. I need yet more hangers. will go down to the new sundries store that has reached a new low in SF-style make-do marketing: it is in a huge old auto shop and the displays consist of oddly shaped plywood tables and/or the cardboard boxes the merchandise came in. they put plexiglass in the big open windows and instead of removing the visa/mc sign and the garage sign they painted over them--that is, they did not paint in a name for their store but simply painted the signs out with beige paint so there are beige blank squares hanging over the door. there is no name. it would be a flea market if it didn't happen to be inside a building I guess except that it is run by only one merchant. sometimes I marvel at how unamerican this city is.
they've gotten hold of a big crop of bamboo and thus sell many varieties of cheap ceramic vases and bowls each with a bundle of green bamboo sticking out of it. I walked through it the other day to see if anything at all was worth buying but the only useful items are the powder coated hangers. will see if I can come up with descriptions of the other merchandise after my trip down there. I remember two huge boxes of random pairs of ugly shoes that looked like they had been crushed.
so it's almost one. I'm alarmed that my day off is whizzing by so quickly. getting up at 6:30 is supposed to prevent this. guess I'd better put that table together. I hope I don't need, like, a torch or anything.
