Confessions of a Brunette on the Internet 43

So I am trying to figure out everything that is on my new phone. On Tuesday I was waiting in line for tithing settlement and saw that I have a "Barcode" App. I don't know when I would use this, or the great purpose in it, but its included which means it must be kind of a big deal. One of the guys there told me I should test it out on this poster . So I scanned the barcode on the poster and it said it couldn't find any matches. All of the sudden, this guy walks in the door that has a barcode shirt! He said he has had it for 10 years or something like that. As soon as he walked in, the guy that I was talking to pointed out this guys shirt so right away I got excited and asked him if I could scan his shirt. With no hesitation (or thinking I'm weird) he says, "sure, go ahead". It came up as an error on my phone. I guess not totally unexpected... but how often do you not only have a Barcode App on your phone but you are actually talking about it and using it when someone wearing a barcode shirt walks in! It was just meant to be. I was amused by it anyway.

I was invited over by my friend Wes on Sunday to play games with some of his family. They pulled out the game "Killer Bunny". Ever heard of it? I hadn't, but let me tell you what, they were serious about this game. The whole point is to collect the most carrots, but you have to have bunnies in order to get carrots and people are always trying to kill your bunnies so you can't get carrots. I am not usually a game person, but this game was quite the experience. ha ha.

You remember how I had so many fun activities to attend for Halloween? Well... the Christmas parties that have gone on have been really fun too. I can't wait to blog about them all. I am behind by 3 parties.  I love the Holidays that you can be festive all month for. Christmas is a really great holiday. I think one of the things that I love the most is seeing all the lights up in the city and in my house and other people's houses as you walk by and I love to see the ones at work. One day, I was leaving work and as soon as I walked out the doors from work to go home, all the tree lights turned on. It was magical for a second.

I know a lot of people are anti Glee... but I still really like it. This last weeks episode was really cute. They did a little knock off of "The Grinch". I loved it. I even cried at the end of the episode... but... that might be because of the way I have been feeling lately. It was sweet though. Here is a clip from the episode... Sue the Grinch.

I've seen people walking around DI with their barcode scanners. They scan whatever treasure they find to see if it is worth buying at DI and reselling later... :]

Oh my goodness, we played Killer Bunnies once with a couple that was SO into it! I think I'd have to play it a couple times before I really could get into it.
