My day got off to a bad start. I was having my favorite deviled eggs for breakfast and I kept tasting something "off" and there was a weird, crunchy texture to my eggs. Suddenly, a feeling of knowing & alarm swept through me and I turned the deviled egg package over. BACON CHEDDAR EGGS. From the deli at Kowalski's.
Yes, I ate a pig. I have been a vegetarian since I was 6 so I was horrified and disgusted. And I wanted to throw up. Which I probably would have if I wasn't at work.
So that was the first bad thing. Then there is the Mac computer at work that I wanted to buy. We are having a silent auction for this:
And all proceeds go to charity. Yesterday, I jumped in "whole hog" (yes, another pig reference, why stop now?) and bid $100 even though the minimum bid was $50. There is a small suggestion at the end of the bidding sheet that says don't go too crazy; these computers go for between $300 and $500 on eBay and Craig's List.
My husband popped a hole in my little balloon of happiness and told me to retract my bid because I don't need another Mac. I already have my Mac Book. I argued that I like having 2 of everything--I used to have 2 cars, and I have 2 bicycles and I would like 2 dogs. I like having backups.
But he was being a jerk about it and since I knew he would be the one who had to come up with the $100 anyhow (what with my No Shopping & all), I sadly took a big, black Sharpie and crossed my name out. Boo!
So now I just have a feeling of blah. I ate bacon and I am not getting my computer. I am trying to think of happy things.
I love my pastel green nail polish. It is precisely the color of my car. I got it to wear for Easter Brunch and Spring in general. My mom just shook her head at me because if nail polish is not pink or clear (in her book) it is not appropriate!
I hope I get something fun in the mail tonight! I am expecting a couple of packages from Jane Porter from a contest I won on her blog and also from the time she was giving away books just for anyone who had commented on that particular day. I am also hoping that Lys remembers to send me a cookbook and "Shoo Jimmy Choo, The Modern Girl's Guide to Spending Less & Saving More" and some Peeps, as promised.
At the very least I hope I am finally up to get the Bag Lady Papers from the Library. I have been waiting, waiting, waiting.
