winning streak…

Believe it or not, I am on a little winning streak. I can’t blog for long ’cause I’m jumping into my Volvo wagon and burning rubber to the corner store for some lotto tickets!!! I just got a phone call from cutie-patootie celebrity designer, Angelo Surmelis, who informed me that I won a set of his Nesting Ottomans.  I’m jumping for joy ’cause they’re Gorgeous Smorgeous and they’ll be perfect in my bedroom sitting area.

SIDE BAR: Never, ever, ever let your 14-year-old knuckle-head teenage son answer the phone. Medical experts claim (duh…any mother coulda told you this) that boys’ brains do not have impulse control until they reach their 20’s–I concur!!!! When Angelo called my home this morning, said knuckle-head answered the phone and stomped through the house with the phone in hand, pretending to be a Frankenstein receptionist calling out in a theatrically deep voice, “JENNIFER FINDLAY, THIS CALL IS FOR YOU, MRS. FINDLAY. CALLING JENNIFER FINDLAY…” Are you kidding me? Excuse me while I take this opportunity to chant, “Namaste” 10 times and do some deep-breathing exercises. It’s going to be a looooong summer.

Back to my winning streak…the local CIBC bank branch also called me on Friday to say that I won a gift basket from a draw I entered during a community festival. I love this week!!!!
