1, 2, 3, it’s thursday!

1. i started my christmas shopping yesterday!


[and that’s all i can say about that!]

2. because it was frickin’ freezing *quite* chilly out yesterday, i grabbed the opportunity to wear my free new saucony compression tights all day out and about, and to work in the evening:

well, that’s a bit of an awkward angle…

…is this a bit better? (fake running!)

the material is fantastically silky! it feels like you’re wearing pj’s. now in terms of compression….i did not actually feel anything in that regard. maybe i am used to how compression socks really support the lower legs?? i felt like i was wearing just a normal pair of leggings with these saucony tights. that is still a very comfortable feeling, but not a compression-y feel. i do like them immensely, though, and envision much wearing of them this coming winter!

3. vfbf joanne and i met at noon for a power visit yesterday. we had a limited timeframe available to us, so we made the most of our minutes, and not even two seconds of silence existed from our “helloooo’s!” to our “see ya’s!” – we are efficient conversationalists! we made plans to go see the movie pitch perfect next week – anyone seen it?? from the preview i saw this summer, it looks like a fun girls’ night out film!

movie suggestions?? i appreciate receiving ideas for films to watch -> it was only thanks to zo‘s mention of moonrise kingdom that i went to see it this summer, and i’d say it was my favourite movie of 2012, so far!

    Glad you liked Moonrise Kingdom…I haven’t been to too many movies since then.
    I wanted to get my shopping done early this year, but haven’t even started so far (well, I have been trying to compile lists of what people want…but haven’t gotten beyond that).

      i have really fallen off in going to see movies, too, zo – but i am looking forward to “pitch perfect” plans later this week! well, a list of gifts to purchase is a good first step! isn’t it nice to have ideas to pursue instead of trying to just pick something that you hope the recipient will enjoy!

    I’m glad that if you have to be in cold weather, that you have fun things like compression leggings to keep you warm!
    I haven’t seen a single movie lately…. so I can’t make any recommendations. I haven’t watched tv, and I just got internet today…so I’m quite behind on everything! I did hear that Pitch Perfect was pretty entertaining, so hopefully you will enjoy it 🙂

      lisa, i was so happy for you when i saw your tweet about getting internet! your new place is yet one more step towards becoming”home!” i wish i could be in temps where running in shorts year-round is the norm…sadly, i think my shorts days will be few and far between for the next several months!

    Christmas shopping frustrates me every year…So Impressed that you’ve started Cathy! I love the idea of the “power visit.” Not much time, but you make the most of it…Excellent! Love the tights, too!

      thanks, fran! now i have to figure out if/what i want to do for knitting projects for xmas gifts…hmmm!! i love how YOU grab every opp for a social get-together – it’s wonderful to see!

    Jeff and I finally watched “Food, Inc.” (now that we have NetFlix we’re seeing older movies that we never watched before!) It’s disturbing in a good way – a wake up call to eat better so now we’re getting our meat from “proper farmers” – grass-fed, etc. animals & local farmers. I already feel healthier!
    Love the tights! 🙂

    • 1970kikiproject  On October 11, 2012 at 3:32 pm

      yes! that movie is on my “to see” list – i bet it is “food for thought” – haha! you have netflix?! lucky!! enjoy!

  • Stacie @ Snaps and Bits  On October 11, 2012 at 2:33 pm

    Wow, I’m impressed that you started your shopping! Wish I could help with the movies but I hardly ever go!

    • 1970kikiproject  On October 11, 2012 at 2:37 pm
