How is it that I can go to Walgreens, or CVS or whatever, to get tampons or kleenex and a new toothbrush, and I come out $40 lighter?  I know it's my own insanity.  I'll be walking through thinking, "I've got great black mascara, and that brown is pretty good, but I hate the brush on the brown-black one."  And suddenly I'm spending 15 minutes in the make up aisle contemplating different brands of mascara before wandering off to find some shampoo that seemed promising from the commercial.  *sigh* Consumer hell.  I really need to go on a 60 day no buying anything but food cleansing.  Hmm, maybe starting in April.  As I was walking to and from Walgreens, I was cracking up over this.

I came home last night, exhausted, super cranky and starving only to discover that the internet and the cable were out and there was no food in the house. Ugh.  Fortunately Holly came home not long after and rescued me by going to get Mediterranean food and listen to me complain endlessly about Comcast.  (Love calling them because invariably it's, "yes, there have been outages reported in your neighborhood." Well fucking great, what are you doing about it?)

The only bright spot in my day is work tonight. I mean I don't even want to go, Painful Sets Tuesday, whooo, but hey, Kristen is probably working and that always the best part of my week. Well except for maybe when Jami comes by unexpectedly and entertains me when I'm doing something I'd rather be procrastinating on.  And new shoes would be awesome, but I don't have any money, so I'll have to settle for Kristen.  Not that it's settling, but, um, yeah, I'll just stop now.  Is it lunch time yet? Oh, it is? Woo!

I hate all my shirts today.  I think it might be time to rotate out whatever I deemed spring clothes last year and put in storage.  I don't even care about being cold any more, I just can't stand any of these sweaters and misshapen long sleeve tees.  I want cute shirts, damn it.  And sandals, but I can hold out another month or so for those.

  1. Thanks for the little shout-out there. Glad I could make you laugh. 🙂

  2. settle, huh?how is it settling to spend the evening singing along to cole's music with me? it's far from settling! do you know how many people would give anything to be in your place? ok, so maybe not many, but still.anyway, i'm super excited to have a rockin' night. or something like that. mostly, i plan on smoking a lot of cigarettes with you. awesome.

  3. Hey! I said you were the high point of my week! The question is, should I wear the adequately comfortable super hot shoes and hope for a short night (and ensure a long one) or wear the boring, nondescript comfortable shoes?

  4. It's making me laugh so much! I so want to do it to the folks who call at work. I'd never make it through without laughing though.

  5. i say wear the hot shoes and bring the comfortable ones. that way, when the sexy shoes jinx us, you can bring out the comfies and reverse the curse.
