Help needed, s'il vous plait.

#1) Let's take a moment, fellow Georgians, and be grateful for this rain.

#2) Anyone know where to find a LOT of buttons at a CHEAP price? As much as I *love* Etsy, I'm not paying $3.00 + shipping for 12 buttons! I need orange, green, and maybe brown. I tried google, failure ensued, and Ebay is too daunting. HELP!

#3) My swap packages are in the mail. That's a relief. I had some serious swap angst this go-round, and then a technical disaster in my trick or treat swap that had to be overcome.

#4) Lindsey is at church, which means I am about to whip up my very favorite bad-for-you processed food: Kraft Macaroni & Cheese, original version. Or, if you are Canadian, you call them Kraft Dinners, apparently. As usual, ignore the video (the car isn't even a Chrysler!), and listen while you surf.

When I saw BNL in New Orleans during my freshman year of college, they had boxes at all the entrances for the macaroni & cheese that people like to throw during this song. They asked that you deposit your box of mac & cheese for donation to a food bank rather than wasting it all over the arena. When I saw them later at Lakewood (sigh...it will NEVER be HiFiBuys to me), they didn't have the boxes. WHAT HAPPENED? People quit being hungry? I think not. I still love the band. Call me a loser.

Are you looking for vintage buttons or new?

I think Oriental Trading has new buttons by the pound.

Vintage buttons I find at flea markets, thrift stores and garage sales.

I usually pass them up because I have way too many at this point, but if you don't need them immediately, I will keep an eye out for you. If you need them immediately shoot me an email and let me know approximately how many and I will see what we have here. (In fact, I know a stall in the antique mall that usually has ziploc bags full for a few dollars.)

At present, I have 15 green buttons of various shades and shapes, 9 brown buttons (2 shapes), and 4 orange buttons.

They can be yours if you need them.

I don't know where you can get buttons besides yard sales...

I think we should get together one night and make some Mac-n-Cheese, I am the only one in this house that "likes THAT kind".

antique stores ( junky ones not those fake Martha'd up places) sell them pretty cheap by the jar

my hub calls it kraft dinner, he's from chicago

I love that stuff

so that BNL song is kinda like the rocky horror picture show, except with macaroni and minus transexuals...kewl
