Happiness is ...

... coming home from work to change from shoes and socks and long-sleeved shirt to sandals and tank top, before heading off to do errands, because it's SO warm outside. :-)))))

Thermometer says it's only 16C, but I don't care ... it FEELS warm! and that's all that matters

I ended up leaving questions 10 and 14 blank because, to me, they were both "none of the above". The term I'm most familiar with for an easy course is "automatic pass" (or, sometimes, "automatic A"), while the generic term for athletic shoes is "runners" (derived from "running shoes").

One of the great mysteries

Jockey underwear (women's, anyway) is ALWAYS on sale at The Bay. ALWAYS. It varies between 25% and 30% off, but it's ALWAYS on sale. Big signs all over as if this is a once-in-a-decade event (they DO change the signs, BTW, so somebody MUST be aware of what's going on). Granted, The Bay isn't a place I visit daily, so it's possible that there are days when Jockey isn't on sale, but what are the odds of it being on sale EVERY time I go into the store (even on days when I'm just taking a shortcut through the store into the mall, and don't even go anywhere near the lingerie department, there are sale signs at the entrances and Jockey-clad mannequins, with sale signs, on display platforms halfway up/down the escalators).

I'm not complaining ... I have no problem with getting a discount on new underwear. But I do sometimes wonder why they don't just call the sale price the regular price and keep it that way ... the savings on sale signs/tags alone would likely visibly boost their profits. :p
