Tell us how you REALLY feel...

Or even better, have a pin made.  Someone actually did!  I guess they were really not a fan of Nixon, huh?  I mean, I can see sporting a pre-fabricated Nixon Sucks pin but to actually go to the trouble of having one MADE?!?  Seems a little Extreme.

The Winner's Circle...

Kenny & I recently happened upon a marathon of $100,000 Pyramid re-runs and we got so totally sucked in by the bad 80's Hair & Fashion that we ended up watching like 3 episodes. I confessed to him that my favorite part was always the Winner's Circle and I think I would be wicked good at giving the clues, at LEAST as good as their frequent celebrity flier Markie Post if not better. (what the hell ever happened to her, anyway?)

So today I got to thinking maybe on the off-chance that Dick Clark is really alive and well and not just a mannequin of himself at this point and they decide to revive this show and invite me on, that I should start practicing.  Picture me on this snowy Saturday in my own personal Winner's Circle that is known as Salvage Chic, sitting on my hands and chomping at the bit to give clues. We have 60 seconds on the clock.  Ready... GO!!

ME: "Snow."
YOU: "Things that are cold, Things that fall from the sky..."
ME: (shaking head) "Tom Brady."
YOU: "Things that need a haircut, Things that have too many random Baby-Mamas..."
ME: (nodding head encouragingly) 
YOU: "Things that people think are good looking but it's just because they are tall..."
ME: (short bark of laughter) "Patriots Games. Patriots PLAYOFF Games."
YOU: "Things you need a ticket to, Things you watch on TV..."
ME: (shaking head again) "Patriots Playoff Games at Gillette Stadium."
YOU: "Things with a lot of drunk people at them."
ME: (shaking head furiously) "Patriots Playoff Games with Tom Brady. Patriots Games in the snow.  Patriots Games with Tom Brady at Gillette Stadium in the snow."

Ding, Ding, we have a winner!  Come see me tomorrow and I'll give you a "Tom Brady is playing a playoff game at Gillette Stadium in the snow today" Discount.  I don't really care if they win or lose, the Super Bowl is gonna kill business either way... SIGH.

Seller's Regret

I mean, WICKED BAD Seller's Regret.  Like, CHRONIC.  I bought this sign from my Picker buddy Z today.  From the get-go there was a small thought of keeping it niggling at the back of my brain and I didn't even have enough light bulbs for it to show it off in full-blown glory but it was SO COOL I just had to post it on the website and our Facebook page for all the world to see.  Not that I thought much would come of it, I mean it was like, the middle of Thursday and all; but apparently that's what the whole world is spending their time doing in the middle of the workday, parked on and Facebook instead of actually working.  I had figured I would have plenty of time for my slight interest in this sign to morph into full-blown obsession and probable adoption before anyone would discover it and want to fork over $195 for it.  But seriously no sooner did I post it than the comments and emails started flying and EVERYBODY wanted this sign.  Sigh... SOLD!  Next time, I'll know better.  Oh, who am I kidding, this happens like once a week.
