yumyum: so i bought this candle called MULLED WINE at anthropologie
yumyum: for FULL PRICE
hmrpita: yes we know
yumyum: which i never do
hmrpita: you paid like eighteen dollars for it
yumyum: yes, but i am recapping
yumyum: shhh you are ruining it
hmrpita: but you hug it every day
yumyum: *hugs it now*
hmrpita: Lenore RUINS Kristen's story...AGAIN
yumyum: now we all know that that is a RIDICULOUS amount to pay for a candle
yumyum: but HOLY SHIT THIS CANDLE SMELLS SOOO GOOD
hmrpita: you can pay more at Candleman (or as i call it "the last-minute panic gift stor")
hmrpita: no e necessary
yumyum: we leave off the e for ...
yumyum: a good reason that we do not feel the need to go into
hmrpita: oh are you still TALKING?
yumyum: TRYING TO
hmrpita: go on
hmrpita: *goes to make more tea*
yumyum: where was I?
yumyum: *yells so she can hear*
hmrpita: you were waxing poetic about your crapload candle
yumyum: when you smell this candle you are going to cry tears of blood because you don't own onw
yumyum: the w is for WOW this smells good
hmrpita: and no e
hmrpita: very good
hmrpita: *nods sagely*
hmrpita: mulled wine does not soiund all that terrific to me.
hmrpita: the i is for IDIOT
yumyum: anyway i was back in the store on wednesday and there they were
yumyum: thakfully nobody cares about what you think
yumyum: the n is left out for "nobody"
hmrpita: you are right. expecially me.
yumyum: it's symbolic
yumyum: WHAT WAS I TALKING ABOUT? I KNOW IT WAS FASCINATING?
yumyum: the question mark is for how could you not find me FASCINATING?
yumyum: i went to the store on weds
yumyum: and they were still there but still way too expensive
yumyum: thursday i went into the store that they have in santa monica and THERE WERE NONE
yumyum: because they had GONE ON SALE
yumyum: and everyone bought them
yumyum: and so I was standing at the sale table weeping tears of blood
yumyum: and some giant man lumbers up and starts smelling the few candles they have on the sale table
yumyum: saying No this isn't it and things like that
yumyum: then he asks me if i know if they have a candle that smells incredibly good - like cinnamon and I say YES IT IS MULLED WINE AND I CAME HERE LOOKING FOR IT TOO.
hmrpita: mmm cinnamon
hmrpita: send shavings of this candle to me.
yumyum: and he goes on and on about how he dragged his girlfriend into the store FOR THAT CANDLE and she thinks he is CARAZY
yumyum: and i of course was sorry i was in the conversation as usual
hmrpita: well, he obviously is, since he is talking to you
yumyum: but that is a seperate thought
hmrpita: LOL of course you were
yumyum: good point
hmrpita: for someone who doesn't like to talk to strangers, you do an awful lot of it.
yumyum: the E is for EEEEE how did i get myself into this conversation
yumyum: sometimes they have candy
hmrpita: and they eat it in front you?
hmrpita: because tht is what I would do
yumyum: the mean ones
yumyum: i rest my case
hmrpita: vowels are so 5 minutes ago
yumyum: i am giving up vowels in the new year
hmrpita: (wow alot of vowels in resolution)
hmrpita: a lot
yumyum: (no kidding!)
hmrpita: NW YRS RSLTN
yumyum: SO i go to pay for some stupid candle that is not the candle i want
yumyum: and there behind the counter ARE THE CANDLES
yumyum: and i asked if someone was returning them
hmrpita: and you got ME one
hmrpita: THANK YOU
hmrpita: (hug emoticon)
yumyum: but NOOOOO an employee was BUYING ALL OF THEM
hmrpita: that is cheating
yumyum: ew! ew! ew! don't hug me!!!!
hmrpita: he can't do that
yumyum: THAT IS SO CHEATING
hmrpita: and to flaunt it
yumyum: except on the other hand - i have worked retail and bless them - have your candles
hmrpita: i am going to send that employee a note thanking him for ruining your day
yumyum: the MAN lumbers up to the COUNTER and goes on and on to the employee about how he came here JUST FOR THAT CANDLE
yumyum: and begs her to sell him one at a profit
yumyum: and he gestures to me saying that i came here for it too
yumyum: and i am all LEAVE ME OUT OF THIS
yumyum: because i don't like it when people gesture to me and cause people to look at me
yumyum: and she relents and gives it to him to buy
yumyum: and he's all YAAAAAAAY and is looking at me like he won because he has all this gumption and you know, in this town you have to stick up for yourself to get things you want
yumyum: or maybe he was just YAAAAYYY SMELLY CANDLE
yumyum: the end of the story is I called the store in denver and they had tons of them left so I bought 4 of them.
yumyum: for 7.95 each!
yumyum: *falls over*
yumyum: *runs to dressing room to light mulled wine candle*
yumyum: *sets dressing room on fire*
yumyum: *pulls fire alarm, grabs candle and runs out of building*
yumyum: It was A Christmas Miracle
