All I remember from November

I thought I would get at least have one post for November.  Updates: I'm still working for the same company.  A couple weeks ago, I showed up to the last day of work and they asked me to stay for another six weeks.  I couldn't say no. 

Among my many adventures this month, BC and I went to a used bookstore and found these Laser discs.  They look like giant DVDs.  We had no idea what they were until we were checking out.  They are basically like DVDs, but GIANT!  You also have to flip or switch the disc during the movie.  I found the movie Hook for $2 and bought it for my brother.  BC bought a couple to hang up in his living room.  Aren't they ridiculous looking?!
We also hit up one of my favorite thrift stores and spent $6 and some change on 2 t-shirts, 6 frames, 2 pairs of glasses, a small mirror, and a skinny turqoise belt.  I've already done some painting and will post some more of my little projects another day.

Thanksgiving was very good!  We only had 14 people this year so it was more intimate than usual.  We ate TONS of good food and then played Michael Jackson dance game and Just Dance 2 on Wii for a couple hours.  I was sore for three days after all that dancing.

On Friday, BC and I got Indian (yum!) with Jazz.  On the way to my house, BC and I decided to just stop into Target (despite my fear of Black Friday) to see if there were any good deals that I couldn't resist...  Apparently I thought there were more than $300 worth of good deals because I came out of the store with a full cart.  I also saved $180.  This Black Friday thing just might be growing on me...


Back from break, I'm doing my usual and Pinning and I find this Pin for Punjammies.  They are made by women in India rescued from forced prostitution seeking to rebuild their lives. Proceeds provide fair-trade wages, savings accounts, and holistic recovery care.  I checked out the site and now I'm pretty much obsessed.  I must have them!  I bought two pairs for Christmas presents and had to force myself not to purchase one for myself.  They even have a Holiday weekend sale with free shipping.  I also found this video:

This post is all over the place, but that's all I have for now.
