Waiting at the mall to return a kid's shirt.

Stores open in five minutes. Lands End has 21 people waiting at the door. No other stores have more than two waiting. I'm alone at Abercrombie Kids. What in the world did LE sell that nobody wanted?!

We just saw Little Women. My hopes were very high.

I loved her books so much as a kid, I named my youngest daughter (now 41) Amy, and she grew up to be an artist too! But none of the cast of this movie matches how I see them in my head, or actors in previous movie adaptations.

If you haven't read Little Women, like my husband, your main problem will be with continuity. If you've read the book, you'll recognize all the major plot points as they check them off.

Scenery is nice. It's entertaining, and does not plod. The sad part was truly sad. I don't know why I didn't love this movie more.

A receipt-cheat story

I bought something at a sports-apparel store and noticed the clerk's sleight-of-hand with the receipt as he appeared to put it in the bag. I asked where it was. He said it was in the bag. I looked, under the items and all around, and it wasn't. He said oh I'm sorry, here it is -- as he scooped it from a box of receipts I could see under the counter.

What is the point of this? So I couldn't return anything? Or does the clerk sell the receipts at a discount, along with matching stolen items, so someone can return the items for credit?

I'm still puzzling over this.

Just saw Knives Out. It was pretty good.

Jamie Lee Curtis looks older than her 61 years, but at least she has the guts to be authentic.

The things we do for bling

It's 19 degrees and we're heading to a 5K. At 75, with all my joint replacements, I'm sure to win a medal! (Unless there are more than two other crones over 70, which is rare even in a field of 2,000+ runners.) I wish I had an IMPEACH sign on my back.
