If you're not knitting, the terrorists win

(My mostly on-topic ramblings about knitting. And life in general. My life in specific.)

I'm a middle aged mother of 2 grown children and wife to a man who doesn't seem to mind my almost heroin-like yarn addiction. I spend my time writing, knitting, and generally stressing out.

Shopping Trip

The Dollar Store is such a cool place. I wish there were Dollar Stores when I was a kid. (We had the 5 & 10¢ store, but believe me, I never saw a thing there for 5 or 10¢. In fact, those crappy Not-Barbie dolls you get for $1 at the Dollar Store now are the same Not-Barbie dolls you could get when I was a kid... for $1.)

A lot of the stuff at the Dollar Store is the same stuff you could get for $1 when I was a kid, in fact. Bag of Army Guys, nail polish, fake flowers, 10 packs of flower seeds... All that was $1 when I was a kid, too. If that doesn't seem remarkable to you, let me just remind you that gas was 40¢ a gallon back then.

Anyway, I like to go to the Dollar Store (notice I've capitalized it, out of respect) for nail polish, paper napkins, Not-Windex, paper plates, party cups, candles, glue for my glue gun, wooden spoons, plastic spoons--basically, all kinds of stuff. Oh, and these, my favorite candy.

It always amazes me what you will find in the Dollar Store on any given day. M pointed out 50 feet of rainbow-colored clothesline to me. But I was most surprised by these items. Maybe it's just me, but I don't think I would be inclined to put that much faith in these products.
