She strikes again.

Sometimes, you have a plan for the day.  Because you’re a Planner and that’s what Planners do.

And sometimes, you end up at the mall for three hours, which gives you a compelling case for power-napping after the fact.

Both are totally valid, but who wants to guess which one happened to me today? 😉

So where am I going with all of this?  Mom read my post about the ugly coffee mugs.  And then she called me to tell me that the next time I came home, there would be a surprise waiting for me.

We are a family full of recreational thrift-ers and so I just had VISIONS of all of the possible ugly mug motifs she could have happened upon.

But it was not to be.  While she was rifling around in the basement for this, that or the other thing, she struck gold.

Yes, just as with the 1960’s Chanel Perfume and the replica of Princess Di’s Engagement Ring, my dead grandmother continues to be cooler than yours.


A brand-new Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Coffee Mug.

We’re talking “new” to the point where I had to peel the $0.59 price tag off of it.

Yes, I’m sure that means that I should have tried to hawk it on eBay or something like that.  But really, that mug and I?  Were totally meant to be together.

I just love it when the stars align, no?

What’s the strangest thing you’ve ever received from a relative?
