Target could endanger your life

Did you know Target is now endangering your health? If you have prescriptions at Target that you need for life threatening conditions like oh say, Diabetes? Target is now only stocking small amounts of any medication to “cut costs”? Sooo if you call in your prescription and want it filled that day. Good luck because you are going to drive to the pharmacy and not be able to pick it up because they have to order it. SO they are lying on the phone message that says come in and it pick it up.

I have now had this happen four times for a medication that is on their common prescription list. If it is a common prescription and a generic they should be stocking it, NO EXCEPTIONS!

I was told yesterday it would be in today. Glad I called since I was told it won’t be in until Monday but they will call a neighboring city and see if they can fill it. Great! But I wasted $2 worth of gas yesterday for a trip I didn’t need to make that their phone message said would be filled after 5. I was also told the phone message system hasn’t worked for months, something I already knew but when you call in there isn’t any indication that it doesn’t work.

Target is being penny wise and pound foolish and I’m about to move my prescriptions to Wahlgreens for a gift card and not Target’s cheesy, cheap 5% on a visit shopping spree award.

I’m supposed to think of some interesting facts for these awards and to hand out some more. I have a hard time knowing what’s interesting and what is just plain weird and I tend to the weird most of the time I’ve been told. 7 times three might be too much.

1. John Brown – the one who allegedly indulged in hanky panky with Queen Victoria is either my first cousin thrice removed or my third cousin depending on what chart you look at. All I know is my grandmother thought he was “no better than he should be”. This was said very disapprovingly.

2. Adam Smith – the dude who caused all kinds of trouble with a little book called “The Wealth of Nations” is also a cousin on my mom’s side.

3. I’m probably my own cousin somewhere because we have Wylies, MacFarlanes and MacGregor’s on both sides of my family but since mom’s came to Canada from Scotland and Northern Ireland in the 1800’s and dad’s family came to Pennsylvania from Scotland and Northern Ireland in 1723 not that closely related.

4. I have 2 tendons in my wrist where most people have one.

5. I have extra bones in my feet for no apparent reason.

6. I was born sitting up cross-legged so my mom called me the Buddha.

7. I love bad Latin phrases like “Semper ubi, sub ubi.”

8. I’m good at tongue twisters and my favourite one is, “I’m a sheet slitter. I slit sheets. I’m the best sheet slitter ever slit a sheet.”

9. I could read when I was three but I don’t remember learning how.

And that’s probably enough boring facts for anyone.

And now the nominations that are completely arbitrary and based on the people who have enlightened me in the last few weeks. Pick which ever award you haven’t already received for your blog.

1. Isiopolis by a member of the Fellowship of Isis and Isadore has a great book of Isian rituals and devotions too.

2. Pagan Devotionals – A new blog I’m following and enjoying

3. Book of Shadows and Blessings – Love this one!

4. Searching for Brigid. Another great blog – I love how many followers of Brighid are out there.

5. Stay for a Spell – Like her point of view a lot.

8. The Shireling – not a regular poster but always good, They are a fellow member of Paul Beyerel’s Rowan Tree Church/Hermit’s Grove. If you haven’t checked Rowan Tree out, please do

10. The Purple Broom -witchy gothness from South Africa, always interesting to hear from south of the equatorial divide

11, Brandi’s blog is regular but always interesting. She’s also a wonderful vendor from our Faire.

12. An Artist’s Garden. This is a stellar glass artist that I just happened to go to high school with back in the dark ages. It can’t be possible it’s time for our 40th reunion.
