Friendly Fill-Ins Week 133

Hi everyone! Time for the Friendly Fill-Ins. Please leave your link (at bottom of post) here or at my co-host’s Four-Legged Furballs. You can also answer in the comment section. Thank you to all who participate.

1. I refuse to shop in ____________________.
 
2. A store I wouldn’t mind being trapped in overnight is _________________________.
 
3. I’m dreaming of _________.

4. I wouldn’t touch _________ with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole.
My answers:
1. I refuse to shop in Hollister. Words can’t express how much I hate that store. It is over priced crap and the music is so loud. My Mom and I used to dread going in there with my niece. Of course, when The Great One is old enough, we will probably go in for her. Not a fan of Aberchrombie either.
2. A store I wouldn’t mind being trapped in overnight is Michael’s Craft Store. I love that place. I could spend hours thinking of what I could create. And I would enjoy crocheting too.
3. I’m dreaming of Nicolas Cage ( nothing naughty).
4. I wouldn’t touch marijuana with a thirty-nine-and-a-half foot pole. I am disgusted that my state allows recreational use now and there are “pot shops” popping up all over.

1. Black Friday _________________________________.

3. ‘Tis the season for _________.
4. I never jumped on the _________ bandwagon.

My answers:

  1. Black Friday I will be out shopping with my mom. We go out about 7 AM, the crowds are gone by then.
  2. A pet peeve of mine this time of year is receiving Christmas cards that people don’t sign with love. We get cards from relatives that don’t sign love, just their names, no note. I figure if you are going to spend 50 cents on a stamp at least write a little note and spread the love. I drive my hubby crazy getting so mad about that, I even use HBO words sometimes.
  3. ‘Tis the season for Christmas music. I am breaking my cds out today.
  4. I never jumped on the cell phone bandwagon. I have a cheap cell phone that I use to call my hubby when I am off with my mom, but that is all.
