I won!! I won!! I won!!

 

Last week I got this email stating I had won something in a contest.

 

 

 

EMAIL COMBO - SML

 

Hmm. It doesn’t look like the Nigerian lottery.

 

 

At first I was like “Yeah, right. Spam alert” But I had entered the sweepstakes and there were lots of different prizes so it was possible. The email said my prize, 12 large sized Yankee Candles (don’t you love those things?), would arrive in about 2 weeks.

 

 

Well, sure enough, guess what UPS just dropped off:

 

 

YANKEE CANDLE (5)

 

 

And holy crap these things are heavy. So – each box contains 6 candles? Good grief.

 

 

YANKEE CANDLE (7) - sml YANKEE CANDLE (9) - sml

That’s a lotta wax

 

 

 

This is awesome. And just think – if another superstorm hits I’ll have the best smelling apartment in the whole damn blackout.

I read the news today, oh boy … October 15, 2013

Not just the news. An actual newspaper. In my hands. It was wonderful. I mean I bought it to check on movie times at my local theatre only to find that apparently they don’t publish that anymore and hitting “411” on my cell phone only gets me to my carrier’s customer service line, so it wasn’t helpful at all, but just holding it was nice.

 

I’m so used to reading stories off of the computer screen, scrolling down for the rest of the story, that turning the pages felt good. Instead of the my hand gripping the hard, ergonomically correct mouse my fingers had the soft, fragile, impermanent, inky paper. Plus it was truly local news so I got to find out what’s going where I live instead of the 5,000 horror stories going on across the globe that make you want to resign from the human race and escape to another planet.

 

Oh and I was outside. In the open air. With other people and sunshine and stuff. Just roaming around, kinda chillin’, and la-di-da. It was a good day.
