Holidays!! The Start

I was anxiously waiting for the weekend you see, I was already in the mood on Monday. Mine was starting early this time and was more thrilled when it did even earlier than expected because on Wednesday, we were dismissed at lunch time and though pleased, I missed to get my evaluation two.

The sole reason for the early break was the vigorous activity of that Wednesday morning and once the pay checks got into our hands, It was difficult to contain all the excitement and every one got so tired. Besides, it was thanksgiving the next day and black Friday the day after (two American holidays am glad for) and as such there was need to do shopping for those days.

Thanks giving was not as fulfilling as I'd anticipated, I got attacked by some virus the night before and practically spent the whole night awake. Had I gone for the flu shots, I'd not be in such suffering so instead of enjoying kulukulu with the many guest that came, I was miserable in my room drinking up some concoction one of the guests came up with. Am happy to say as I write now, it works because am in much better shape. This mixture recipe is for sale to the highest bidder as it works faster than the pharmacy drugs and is 100% organic.

Unfortunately, I have no pictures to share of the fun filled activities as my plans where all ruined and eating was such a horrible experience with my nose & eyes on fire.

Black Friday, the Friday after thanks giving is apparently made a holiday to allow for shopping. The prices of some select items are cut by sometimes even 80% for a very limited time. This has very many outcomes one of which is people camping outside big stores to wait when they are opened to rush in and grab stuff. It's also a dangerous activity that may lead to death as narrated in this story. I too had plans to also camp but safely in front of my PC screen waiting for mostly the apple and dell sites to open up their black Friday deals sales.

This camping plan of course went up in flames because for the first time in almost 2 years, I slept before 22:00hrs and by the time I woke up at 10 this morning, most of the stuff I wanted where already sold out and the deals already closed. I won't say how pissed I was but some people are going to miss my presents this year, my new debit card only has $300 which is peanuts in this difficult economy. All of a sudden am missing Ug so much where I'd be more on the receiving than the giving side.

Am thankful that I am much better now. A bit hazy but still able to wish all my fellow bloggers a happy festive/holiday season.

Apr9, thanks!! You too.

Princess, some how you infected me.

Cheri, cum again?

Rising page, I love potatoes. send

Kin'shar, you lucky one. You must have been one of the few who was looking forward to the huge cut off prices and did not get put down by the flu sickness that's been going around like a wild fire. At least you've got most of your stuff bagged in.

SilverBow, You'd most definitely retire early because most of the required ingredients are readily available in Nakasero & Owino without paying through your nose.

Eddsla, Thanks. Do yo thing

I like double-talk, it wakes up the wit cells. Fiction is a imperative ingredient in living, it's a functioning of looking at freshness auspices of the awful end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to chortle at sustenance's realities.

We should be painstaking and perceptive in all the advice we give. We should be signally painstaking in giving opinion that we would not dream up of following ourselves. Most of all, we ought to avoid giving counsel which we don't follow when it damages those who transport us at our word.

To be a noble benign being is to have a philanthropic of openness to the world, an cleverness to trust unsure things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in unequivocally extreme circumstances on which you were not to blame. That says something uncommonly important about the prerequisite of the righteous passion: that it is based on a conviction in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a shop than like a prize, something somewhat feeble, but whose acutely special beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
