Sides of Note:
I ran to Target to grab a few things (of course, few as in Christmas stuff everywhere influenced me to buy holiday cards and wrapping paper) and I picked up People magazine to skim.

Samantha's been reporting on last night's weird date...
Miranda: Y'see, this is why I don't date -- the men out there are freaks.

Carrie: Okay, what about us?
Miranda: We're just choosy. I'm getting more shrimp.
BUT despite the above silliness, I have things to be grateful for! I found the most perfect aforementioned Christmas cards and wrapping paper, have some lovely 7-Up to soothe the tummy and my neighbors downstairs took the garbage and recycling to the curb in the pouring rain.
