On the plus side, my dentist's office is in the AIA building, which also houses the AIA Bookstore. tssandwich introduced me to the AIA Bookstore some years ago, and I've been infatuated with it ever since. What I didn't know (as I guess I've never been there at this time of year before), is that they open a whole other floor of the store that is devoted to holiday decorations. CRAMMED to the RAFTERS full of holiday decorations...mostly ornaments. It being a very cool store in the first place, they of course have very cool decorations. I found (among other wonders) a tiki-mug ornament. They have ornaments from MOMA (which, incidentally, are MUCH brighter and lovely than they appear online). They have wooden ornaments. Just beautiful and interesting stuff all around. They really have all kinds of cool ornaments...and it's a good thing I had a dentist's appointment today, or I would likely have spent at least another hour in the store otherwise.
The Troll went off to the party; I sent my regrets and the tiki ornament for the party host along with him. Hopefully, this stupid thing will clear up by tomorrow...I've got stuff to *do*!
Will sleep now. :zzzzzzzz
