I BROKE MY RULE: I SHOPPED ON BLACK FRIDAY
I'll get back to that. I've had a 9-day vacation for Thanksgiving. Before we went to visit my BFF (from now on called MTW) I got in some thrifting.
Last Monday, I got all this at the local charity. The men's shirt is from The Kings Road Shop at Sear's and the blue sweater is cashmere from Peck and Peck. I can't pass up cashmere at the charity shop. I'm not taking this one apart, but if the seams are sewn, the sweater can be pulled apart and you can make something else out of it. Recycle it!
About breaking my rule. I don't like that Christmas has become the reason to stand in line at a store so you can beat someone up for that $10 toaster ( and I'm not even religious) When this trend first started, I swore I'd never shop on Black Friday....until this time. Does it count when I shopped at 2 Value Villages, a Goodwill and my new favorite place on earth, The by the pound outlet?
We had a lovely Thanksgiving dinner and spent our down time watching the first (and only season) of The Lone Gunmen. Does anyone remember this show? It was a spin off of the X-Files and lasted 13 episodes in the spring of 2001.

"PUT THOSE WITH THE REST OF THE BODY PARTS"
Yeah, I said that at work yesterday. And here are the "body parts"

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 73
Say "Hello" to a fancy lady.
And what I really got for my birthday. The post about the heater/AC unit was a joke. We did have to replace the 25-year old unit and it just happened at the same time.
Do you sign up for the free rewards programs that stores have? I do, if it's a store I like to shop at. World Market, DSW, Sephora, and Anthropology all have free reward programs. DSW, Sephora and Anthropology send you birthday coupons (the 15% coupon). I don't like the ones that charge you to join.
We didn't make it to the Full Moon bonfire on Saturday, had way too much fun earlier in the day at early Thanksgiving at a friends house. Of course, didn't take photos. I feel that if I'm a guest at someone else's home it's rude to pull out my camera and start snapping away.
3 more days until real Thanksgiving break!

WEIRD DOLL WEDNESDAY, PART 72
Thanks for all the birthday greetings. My birthday is tomorrow, I just hadn't done an outfit post in forever. I am getting other gifts, we just thought it was funny that we had to buy that new heater/AC right now. The Doctor's joke was "Enjoy your, birthday, christmas, vacation, birthday, christmas gift!"
See? Another birthday gift. Kisses!!! Can't decide if this one is male or female. Malice sent this one and 3 beautiful Russian Christmas dolls, which will be posted on Weird Doll Christmas Wednesday.

BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER (yeah, sarcastic)
That's where the AC part is , it has a cover to keep the leaves out. Look at that happy face.
