Today I learned that the day after Black Friday is now called Small Business Saturday. Seems like a good excuse to go to the DIME Store to me! Emily and I floated around in search of potential Christmas presents, but it was pretty clear that we waited to long to show up.
From there, we headed to Dallas for some tasty Mexican food with Brandon. During the meal he mentioned some kind of craft show going on today at the Community brewery, also in honor of Small Business Saturday. We ended up hitting that up after lunch, and it turned out to be a super cool thing! Brandon’s friend had a booth there selling amazing furniture and some cool lamps. I also ran into FOUR people from high school: James Stephen, Travis Damerau, Garrett Vandergriff, and Ashleigh (Abbott) Papania! And I only forgot two of their names, so that’s good, right? To be fair, the lot of them is almost completely unrecognizable. We did get to spend some time catching up; enough to where Emily had to drag me away. It was good seeing you peeps!
After a less-than-quick trip to North Park Center, we headed home. During our outing, I got a text from my mom, who had been trying to buy me a Christmas present but was having trouble with the purchasing process. I have a hard time putting reasonable items on my list, which is how my mom ended up trying to buy an After Effects plugin. Long story short, I got my early Christmas present SUPER early this year, and by the end of the evening I had created my very first walk cycle for a character I built with RubberHose. Thanks Mom! Sorry I’m difficult to shop for. :D
