Moving on... Help, please!

Last night I dashed off a post in response to some surprising news. I don't handle surprises well. I indulged in some "poetic" self pity and went to bed. Then I woke up ashamed of myself and deleted the post. If you read it and commented, thank you.

Anyway, who has time to wallow in self-pity when there's amazing TV to watch! Tonight is Bones, America's Next Top Model AND Project Runway. I'm going to have to Tivo at least one of those shows and I just can't make up my mind. I'm addicted to Bones now. It is filling the void left by Sawyer and Jack in the hot man department. Booth doesn't take off his shirt nearly enough for my taste, but then he doesn't have the excuse of being stranded on a deserted island either. Ah well...

Tomorrow is the season premiere of Survivor and I am wary. Last season was pretty good and if the tradition holds true, this season will suck donkey balls. However, I will reserve judgement for at least two episodes. Oh, who am I kidding! I'll be judging them from the get-go. That's my favorite part of reality TV! Judging others from the safety of my home.

With all of this TV to watch, I almost forgot about an assignment from work - yes, work. I have been assigned to put together a "Spa Basket" to raffle off for the Christmas Party Fund. When the Party Leader (makes him sound communist!) told me that I had been volunteered for the task I was shocked. I mean, really? Do I look like I have the faintest idea of what would occur at a spa?

I need help. So far I have a basket - what else do I need? I was thinking about getting some wine and maybe a loofah along with some candles. What else? Pedicure set? Bubble bath? Suggestions? Help!

damn it I missed the self pity post...hope you are ok!

tv love always helps me escape my REAL life...it's so much more fun!

spa basket...bath beads (not to be confused with anal ones), some nice lotion...

Anal ones? He asked .. in total innocence.
Go to Bed, Bath & Beyond. Some one there would be able to help you put together a nice 'Spa Basket'. All kinds of smell good, feel good stuff there. No anal beads, though. (Are those the ones that come on a string?)

Listen, we are here for you in thick and thin. You weren't throwing a pity party. Damn, things like that hurt and we all know it.

Spa basket??? Some scrubbies, fizzy tablets, foot cream, etc.

Oh God. Stacie, I love you for even mentioning anal beads. That made tears come to my eyes.

Thanks for all the suggestions! I'll take a picture of the finish product when I put it together.

I love Bones too - it's totally my new thing! And even though Booth annoys me because in real life he's married to a Playboy model or something, I tend to like him in this show more than in previous ones (Buffy, Angel). He is hot. So is, I'm ashamed to say, Pacey from Dawson's Creek now that he's all grown up and on Fringe. He annoys me still, just because he was on DC for cripes sake, but he's grown up well.

I forgot Bones is on tonight, so thanks for the reminder :)

LceeL said...

Jeez, I forgot Bones was on last night. i wonder if the Tivo thing from last season still would pick it up?

Matter Of Fact Mommy said...

@stacie, LMFAO @ anal beads. you are SUCH A PERV!

i watched ANTM last night. it's about time Isis got the boot... up his ass. he/she was just not pretty with that lazy eye! sorry, i'm getting carried away on nonsense.

Sounds like you're off to a great start with the basket, that sounds awesome! Maybe a relaxing CD too, like Enya or piano music or something soothing. You'll do great, show us a picture when you're done!
