today I found out that I don’t work two shifts after all, which gives me a whole lovely afternoon I’d written off as a non-entity. so I bought that bottle of creme de menthe I talked about earlier (I used up my magical surprise liqueur; there wasn’t much), and my mother ended up wanting to go to TJ Maxx on the way home, where I found a tin of Ghirardelli double chocolate cocoa, and of course I had to buy that, which meant that last I had to stop at the grocery store and buy whipped cream (and crescent rolls!).
so: day that was supposed to be work all day has turned into MAGICAL SURPRISE CHRISTMAS PARTY WITH MYSELF (and Kate Rusby) and is now the best day.
also: Ghirardelli cocoa, creme de menthe, whipped cream with crushed candy cane on top. TAKE NOTE. AMBROSIA.
