I went SHOPPING today! It was nice getting out of the house. Mom and I went to Value City, TJMaxx, and Kohls. Almost all my gifts are purchased. Mom said she wouldn’t mind shopping tomorrow as well. I think she had fun!

This evening I realized that I never went to the Christkindlmarkt in Bethlehem! I don’t think it’s too late. Maybe if I get my car back on Thursday, I can go on Friday. WAIT! It is too late. I just checked the Web site and the last day was the 18th. BAH HUMBUG!

If you found a bug in a restaurant would you report it to the Board of Health? Recently I was dining at a favorite restaurant of mine and I found a bug (a big ugly one) crawling along the wall. I told the manager and his reaction was odd. He got kinda riled up and kept repeating that the Board of Health was recently in and gave them a good rating. I don’t think I can ever go back. I still feel queasy just thinking about it. At least it wasn’t on my plate, I guess.
