    @Afishwish I’d relist it at a higher price and see if the offers come closer to your original asking price. People just like haggling.

    Can confirm. I love feeling like I talked someone down in price when in reality, I’ve fallen for a marketing trap.

    That’s a good suggestion. I have one interested person who didn’t go straight to haggling; I’ll see what they say and if it’s a no-go then I’ll change the listing.

    The little elastic loop that holds a pen to the side of my notebook broke. I've shown up to too many meetings with my notepad and no pen.

    I’m having lunch at the same place I eavesdropped on the teenagers last week. You can’t not overhear the conversations going on next to you here. This week it’s two middle aged women. It’s Next Door brought to life. All these ladies have done is bitch about minor issues in their apartment building, and things their neighbors do, and about technical difficulties with things that need to be paid online. Also minor work they pay people for, and then complaining about the people.

    There was one kind of awesome thing, though: one brings a spray bottle with her when she goes out to eat and whoever in their group brings up work gets a spray.

    My flight out of Seattle was delayed so badly that now i’m hanging out at DFW with possibly the worst margarita i’ve ever had.

    @HBC SeaTac? Lady Yum has excellent macaroons. And right next to that Beecher’s has delicious everything (assuming you can eat cheese and gluten). ​

    I placed a Sephora order last Friday. I figured it would probably ship by Monday so it wouldn’t be a problem arriving before we leave for Florida on Saturday. It hasn’t even shipped yet! I know there’s the friends and family sale going on but employees have to give people their code so I didn’t think it would affect processing times that much.

    I’m having lunch at a piroshky place. The usual cashier is warm and fuzzy in a very Soviet way, which is to say she’s grizzled af.
    Ex: I tried ordering hinikaly one day.
    Flat stare. “Hinikaly take twenty five minutes. Pelmeni take ten.” She then gave me a look that dared me to order hinikaly. Obvs I got pelmeni. Anyways, this is pretty representative of typical interactions with her.

    Anyways, I ate there today, and the cashier was a new adorable bubbly lady with golden retriever-like friendliness. The food was the same, but the dining experience was just not. I kind of miss grumpy lady.

    By the time my kid is old enough for this ridiculously cute toy, they probably won't sell it any more. Not that I'd buy it anyway because $$$$$, but it is really stinking cute.

    Eta: turns out pretty much everything crate & kids sells is super cute and I want it all.

    OMG that’s beautiful. So expensive, but damn is it cute.

    At least the reviews say it’s poor quality, so you’re not REALLY missing out.

    If you want to slowly spend a boatload on wooden figurines, there’s always Ostheimer. And at least that way you can buy one or two at a time. (You can tell what I’ve been considering).

    I've thought about learning to make wooden/felt toys because I can't justify buying them. I bought the supplies to make one of those wooden rainbow stacking puzzles for E but the band saw scares me. I need to just suck it up and do it.

    It’s like a Pandora bracelet... you think oh it’s just $20 here, $35 here... then one day you wJr up and you have a $1000 set of (adorably whimsical) wooden figurines.

    I feel like a mean mom. All of these mentioned toys just make me think “not in my house with all those tiny pieces!” Snaps on tipping me off to lakeshore learning though! We are getting C the safe and soft pots and pans and J their set of safe and soft blocks. Things that my kid will 110% throw now made soft and less noisy? Sign me up!

    (Also between this and an insane crayola sale I am almost done with their Christmas shopping haha)

    I really have no justification for why I love those figurines so much. Maybe because I feel like they’re pretty enough to be displayed? Maybe I have this mental image of playing woodland creatures with my kid as the figurines dance over a wooden rainbow? The Waldorf suppliers have found an easy mark in me.

    Damn it. I can't even use Ryder as an excuse for those toys. I'm gonna have to become a toy collector or something.

    I coordinated a work bank trip with a happy hour since it’s nearby so I could leave early from work. I even brought something to return at another nearby store. Well, that’s not happening since the bank dude is SO SLOW I might even be late for HH. Ugh.
