last week was huge in the present department. i suppose it's stretching it a bit to call my own things presents, but as i had almost given up hope of ever seeing them again, presents they are indeed!
and rebecca brought me presents too! my favorite, from my mother-in-law, is a requested
bottle, squeeze bottle of miracle whip, the one with zip! i don't use a lot of mayonnaise, but when i do need some, i prefer miracle whip over all other imposters. i bought another jar of substandard stuff while awaiting my precious package, and i must say it was on the disgusting side. the french seem to be in love with condiments as mustard and mayonnaise take up an entire side of an aisle, but obviously they don't know quality when they see it as miracle whip is conspicuously missing from the shelves.
so now, yay! when i make potato salad or sandwiches or appetizer dips, i'm set. thank you ann-therese!
also, for the first time in years, we did not get any trick-or-treaters tonight. i'm not sure whether to be happy or sad. i think i am sad that i won't have any left-over halloween candy. and even more sad that there is nothing on tv but a crap charles bronson movie overdubbed into french, of course.
