News of the day 011

Watching Archer was definitely something that I needed to do today, and I will attempt to add other items to that list, as I appear to be having a lucid moment:
  1. Have my prescriptions refilled at WalMart.

  2. Buy longer laces for my shoes.

  3. Evaluate adding something more to the present for tonight.
How to Throw a Legit White Elephant Party
“Hey [Y’all], According to Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary, ‘a white elephant is an object no longer of value to its owner but of value to others. Or something of little or no value.’”

Some of my family will likely be in attendance at the event, and I now remember that I may have previously agreed to some computer-related task for my mother for today.

Cutie Mark Crusaders
“Just another My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic blog. This is not an Ask Blog. If you are looking for Cutie Mark Crusaders asks please check the master list. ponies”
An ask blog is where people submit questions to someone who plays a character and usually responses in the form of a comic, and an author may also have a related page on Facebook, e.g., Berry Punch also has Ask Berry Punch. Of course, the fandom is not officially sanctioned by My Little Pony.

Bronies in a nutshell
“That’s beautiful, Katie.”

The community of bronies for the most part seek to inspire goodness and the values of the show in others; A Word From Rainbow Dash, by ~grampagort on deviantART, is an example.

When I took a Chevy Cruze for a test drive a year ago, I received a gift card to Target. After an hour of searching, I found the card this morning.
