Thank you for birthday shout-outs from silveryscrape

It's been a two-day funfest so far, and I'm not stopping until Monday morning!
Did a little b-day shopping this morning. The local chapter of the Junior League has a big once a year thrift shop/garage sale/ type dealie, all proceeds to charity, so I moseyed over to see what I could find.
Nothing sparkly, to my surprise. But I did nab about eight CDs for a buck each, woohoo! Aimee Mann, Social Distortion, Mighty Might Bosstones and others that escape memory. Saw a couple of Morrisey CDs but yikes, I can only listen to that guy for ten, fifteen seconds, tops. I know that he's a god in some circles, but. Not here. Give me JC Chasez any day.
Also found: a little book about Frank Lloyd Wright's amazing architecture, Martha Stewart's Handmade Christmas, another Martha title that's eluding me at the moment, and a pair of tapestry Ralph Lauren flats in perfect condition that I nabbed for two bucks. TWO BUCKS! They're gorgeous. Also nabbed a pair of grey suede loafers, also in perfect condition, also for two bucks - but lacking the cachet of the Ralph Lauren label [insert snooty up-turned nose here].
Disappointment of the day - and I should know better: Found a copy of "Remember Two Things" by Dave Matthews Band. Yay! A buck! Discovered when I got home that I'd paid for the jewel case and liner notes, because the CD was missing. Damn and triple damn. Always look inside the jewel case! I know this from years of thrift shopping! Still, a buck to charity, so no big. ::cries::
Also found a Nickelodeon magazine with Daniel Radcliffe and Tom Felton on the cover. A couple of their interview bits need to be immortalized in my journal, whenever I get off my tush and into the other room to nab the mag.
So yes! All this and a few other things not worth mentioning, all for a mere $22.00! For charity!
And the foxmonkey weekend birthday bash continues!
