I did some quick errands after my final volunteer shift at the Salvation Army Toy shop today.
And by errands, I mean I went to the Union Square Holiday Market to buy this specific eustress magnet. Where Nicola and the Newfoundlander recognized me as the magnet lady.
Then I went to Sanrio to return the supercute 15.4-inch laptop case I loved but wouldn't fit my 17-inch laptop. Where the security guard recognized me because I was just there earlier this week.
Then I went to the NBC Store to buy the supercute Doctor T-shirt (Ten/David Tennant) that I've visited three times in the last month. Where the cashier recognized me because I was just there earlier this week.
Conclusion: I am getting recognized in too many places on this tiny island of Manhattan.
I cannot stop buying these reclaimed words on reclaimed wood magnets. I specifically wanted eustress, because it's such a great word.
Nicola and the Newfie's definition: "Something that makes you both a little crazy and a little happy but a little more happy than crazy." The actual definition: the "good kind of stress." (Which if you think about it, fits the entire holiday season from Thanksgiving to New Year's.)
Anyway, you'll see here that I wasn't kidding about loving these magnets. Ya'll need to get down to the holiday market and buy them, because there's a part of me that wants to collect them all.
On the other hand, I may have enough for 2010, and I figure I can always try to round out the collection next year? Maybe?
Oh. My. Word. It's a good thing I'm leaving for home in a couple of days. I just realized THEY HAVE NEW WORDS.
Mind you, I still have the weekend. Sigh.
