Astro Turf to Open "Occasionally"

I wonder if it's because in mid-October I wrote them a note on the back of a receipt, sliding it under their door, to mention that I wanted a table that was in their window. "I've come by three times, and you're always closed. Please call," I wrote, since I'm not really much of a negotiator, or good at hiding my shopping wants. Actually, the entire note exuded desperation. But maybe it worked?

Because now they are open (ish) and I am ready to try to give them my money again. That yellow vintage kitchen table must be mine (so long as none of you folks figure out their mysterious hours first, and buy it before me).

Please Buy Me Presents From this Site

Have you guys been reading the Things That Look Like Other Things blog? It's the best. Each time there's a new entry in my RSS reader, I have the exact same reaction, Groundhog Day-like. "Wow,"I mutter to myself from my cubicle or couch, "that thing looks like that other thing. I want it!"

I picked three things that in particular I really feel my life is incomplete without. But really, anything from the site makes me thrilled.
