Another Road Trip and Random Thoughts

Early tomorrow morning, I'll be enroute to Iowa via plane and R.V. I wish I could give all the details, but suffice it to say it should be a fun time and I'll be gone for a month. I'll try to still blog periodically, but know that I will be very busy - and it may be sporadic.

Random Thoughts:

Nail Salons - Is it too much to ask to find a nail salon that speaks English well and doesn't try to upsell EVERYTHING under the sun? I've been a patron for several years. In the last year or so, going to the very same place, I have gotten accustomed to saying, "I need a fill. Just acrylic. No, I don't want gel. I don't want a pedicure. I don't want an airbrused design. I don't want anything waxed. I ONLY want an acrylic fill". I try to say it with a smile.

Christmas Shopping - After many retailers announced this year that they would open at 4am on black Friday, I officially decided I'm done with conventional Christmas shopping. I can't believe companies truly believe consumers want to start shopping more than sleep on a family weekend. I can't believe consumers actually go and do this, and feed the frenzy. I'm sorry if you were one of those consumers.
