My shift last night at the newspaper was super duper! I took my thoughts, jotted down on lined notebook paper, & laid them out in proper newspaper fashion. I was so giddy I could have squealed! In fact, I am pretty sure I did.
I am so happy with how it turned out & you can bet I'll be running to get a copy of the newspaper when my column publishes tomorrow.
As far as I know, the newspaper is not available online. But subscriptions are super cheap. And, hey, there's nothin' like supporting a small town & an establishement that takes part in the creative process. And plus, you'll make me look good.
Out-of-state subscriptions are available for around $28 a year. (Or you can buy just one paper if you want.) Contact the Bridgeport News-Blade at:

Ok, now that the infomercial is over, I continue with the long & random post I promised yesterday....
To answer some of your questions...
The girls made 1" buttons for their classmates on Valentines Day. And the kid's & teachers loved them! Zoey & Pazely were rather proud to see everyone wearing their creations right away!
I purchased the button machine from a shop on eBay called Button Safari. Here's the link:
I have the 1" Model 100 button machine that came with 1000 parts. Other machines are available that make larger buttons too.
Yikes! Mr WhiMSy love's birthday is tomorrow! What shall I get him?!?!?!
Oh! I totally forgot to tell you what the name of my column is! It's called "WhiMSy love...(in print)". I love that I got to keep the whole WhiMSy love thing. I don't know why, but I never thought it could be an option. And I am able to have my blog link & email on the bottom of the column each week. I thought it would be fun someday to have a "Dear WhiMSy love" post on my blog, full of questions & comments from my newspsper fans. Well, if there ARE any fans. Or comments. It may just be whistling wind & crickets. Who knows?
I'm on the hunt for a fun retro/vintage bowling shirt. Me, the mister & a handful of other folks are planning a Wii Virtual Bowling Bash for the Jr High & Highschool aged kids in the community & I want to be all decked out in bowling duds. If you find any cool cheap ones, let me know! For reals!
I just heard through the grapevine that my computer is fixed! It's being shipped to me from Lincoln, which is on the other side of the state.
Do you ever watch the previews before a movie & they show a montage of all these awesome bits of movies & yet they don't tell you what movies they're from? I HATE when that happens.
I am now waiting outside the girls' school in my car. School is out soon. I always bring a snack. Today it's orange cream soda & fudge grahams.
Ta ta for now!
