all right, must head to that happy place we know as TArget. :rolleyes: But it can be very dangerous, so this will be a very quick trip, STRAIGHT to the container area. In and out, no diversions. :ph34r:

No idea what TArget is :blink: but the container area sounds scary :unsure:

Allo's Gus-like stare.

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol:

Allo looks quite bored with us, the Great Unwashed...

Patti, Allo and Gus are staring quite similarly...hilarious. We need to split-screen them. Okay, all you photo-pimpers...I agree, Gus needs a pipe and tweed jacket!

...The container aisle of TArget...Susie, carefully look in ALL of the said containers. Someone may have stuffed a spare mojo in one of them. :P

I love the container section at Target. But I always feel like I need everything. I feel like I NEED 10 wicker hampers in various shapes and sizes, with multiple linen liners. This is my problem in Pier 1 as well. :ph34r: I think my life could be organized if I just had enough wicker baskets and containers. :rolleyes:

Actually, you know what? I will never be organized, ever. What made me realize this just now? I glanced over at my pile of "to file" papers. The pile is about 6 inches tall, and do you know where it is sitting? On top of the filing cabinet. If I cannot get the stuff from the top of the cabinet into the appropriate files, there's just no hope for me. :lol:

Ugh fever delirium.

Careful Susie, I went into Target this afternoon for some towels. I spent $170 :o and I NEEDED everything I bought!!!!

Sarah :lol::lol: my "to be filed" pile also sits on the file cabinet and it is also quite tall . . . one of these days when I can tear myself away from the computer . . .

*sniff*sniff* Smell that? That's right! You don't! I washed the hair salon smelly cr@p out of my hair and now I'm having a spot of tea to soothe my throat. WebMD says hot tea is a good home remedy for chemically burned esophaguses (esophagi?) :huh::blink:

Yes, Gus does possess this Mona Lisa-type stare. I cannot decide...he either looks quite refined and regal, or colossally stupid. :rolleyes:

:lol: colossally stupid. :lol: no, surely not!

No idea what TArget is :blink: but the container area sounds scary :unsure:

OMG - - how do we explain Target to the others??? it's the most magic, happy place (except for Anthropology - the most magic wonderland of all but come on, who can afford anything but the sale section)

Target....you can get eveyrthing there. And the housewares section - w/ affordable designs by posh designers.......OMG. Always changing, always new, always happy.....and so after you've picked up your candles/bras/underwear/shoes/baby stuff/Ipod equipment/gift items/appliances/sheets/towels/lamps/hardware you can go get all of your gardening supplies and plants, and some wine and beer, lots of glutenized food, delicious candies (that Choxie brand, which Gail calls 'Joanie loves Chochi'), all manner of dishware, containers, makeup, and cleaning supplies....then pet foods, drugs, blah blah blah. What did I leave out? :lol:

So I made it back in less than $30. Truly was a mad dash. Did not see the rest of my mojo in any container therein. Did not stray to any other department. (that is a lie, I did look at Smith and Hawken fall decor items but was not overly moved. )

Allo looks quite bored with us, the Great Unwashed...

Patti, Allo and Gus are staring quite similarly...hilarious. We need to split-screen them. Okay, all you photo-pimpers...I agree, Gus needs a pipe and tweed jacket!

:lol: THE GREAT UNWASHED!!! OMG.......Emily is also getting funnier, I think.

will have to find Tika's regal (or stupid) stare......

And Annie has some wonderful meerkat poses.....

This is my problem in Pier 1 as well. I think my life could be organized if I just had enough wicker baskets and containers.

What is with the wicker and rattan large square hampers/containers, and the endless wanting of them??? I am drawn, adn stare fixedly at them for a while, longingly.....

Poor feverish girl!

OMG six inches??? that's nothing. I have things in boxes. :ph34r: Well, had them. Just shredded most of it. It was astonishingly satisfying.

Ah! Mais, Non! C'est La Targette....!

Beaucoup de gens ici disent, "Tar-jay." Vraiment! :rolleyes:

oh my french is quite rusty.

I, too, stare at those wicker basket-type hampers...what are we longing for? I suppose I should ask to be buried in a great big one when I join the Great Departed. Be quite a lovely coffin, I should think. :)

Speaking of esophagi, I wonder how Bob Goulet's is?...

Lets see . . . I think you left out . . . Oh, wait a minute . . . you invoked the triple blah, that covers EVERYTHING.

JANET - mind the esophagus!! what WAS in your hair, anyway???

Some sort of perfumed cream rinse, I believe. I'm not a perfume person. Strong perfumes bother me (apparently not as bad as they bother Tom as we have not seen him in days!) She's used it before but maybe she didn't rinse as well, it was much stronger today!! And during the mid-day wash, my hair was slimey - yes, SLIMEY! <_<:huh: However, I successfully came away with hair that was neither orange nor shaped into an inverted pyramid! :lol::lol:

Hi Happy!! Ever PAY someone to turn your hair orange? :o:lol:

Actually, I was half serious...did you notice if they have any wicker storage bins big enough for a corpse? That would be just a fine thing to be buried in...a Target rattan box, perhaps with a burlap liner. Cheap, enviornmentally friendly, and attractive. May have to get this into my will... :D:rolleyes:

Target makes me wish I were an American! Their housewares department makes me loose my head. I've brought an icecream maker, fondue set, and many other things at Target that I've used about once. If I lived in the States I would be at Target everyday.

It's so disappointing after a going to Target on a trip across the boarder and then coming home and going to boring Zellers. You Americans have all of the good things!
