Sonoma Storm

Williams-Sonoma is desperate. They want me to buy something. Anything. This week I’ve received a Williams-Sonoma catalog

Every

Single

Day

It’s Thursday and I have four different catalogs.

What’s with those guys? One catalog would be just fine. Each catalog has basically the same stuff: tableware, kitchenware, cleaningware and werewolfware.

I laid the catalogs out on my kitchen table, appropriately, and went through them page by page. OK, I had a lot of time last night. Indulge me.

The only thing that differed was food. Each catalog offered a bunch of food: cakes, pastries, meats, cheeses and all sorts of stuff. That stuff was different, to some degree, in each catalog.

But, the stuff I was interested in, knives, bowls, knives and knives were the same in each one. I checked the prices, too, and no discounts.

Where’s the Christmas Spirit?

Tomorrow I expect to receive my post-Halloween pre-Thanksgiving Williams-Sonoma catalog extraordinaire with no discounts on knives but plenty of food I don’t want.

Actually, it’s plenty of food I do want but don’t need. Of course, I don’t need another knife, either, but that’s another story!

yes, but do you have the sweet "husky" box knife from Home Depot? it comes in pink, purple, red and blue. did i mention it's sweet? yes, i'm a lady, and I like my husky box knife. i wear it on my belt right next to my stanley 16 ft tape measure. lol
just kidding about wearing them, but i do own them, and use them often. those darn box knives, they come in handy for all sorts of things.

Your Williams-Sonoma is my Pottery Barn.

I love you, but Make. It. Stop.
