Things I've Done in the Last 48 Hours That Are Really Gonna Make it Difficult for Someone to Put Up With Me Someday

- Bought two new coats online. To look fabulous, of course, and to stuff in a coat closet that is already packed and has absolutely NO room for one more coat, much less the coats of any other person.

- Bought flip flops online. Hello? They're on clearance. I know there are forty-five pairs in the closet. I know.

- Spent $45 on sending a package of my favorite chips and salsa to Canada because friends of mine are having a party and I cannot be there (don't think I did not see how much a weekend flight to Edmonton was, either).

- Spent 35 minutes on the floor with my dog rocking her like a baby because I hadn't seen her in ten hours.

- Went to the gym and sweat my little heart out on the elliptical and proceeded to take my sweaty, greasy self all over the city running errands with no regard for the noses of others.

- Went to the bookstore and made a list of all the new books I want even though there's a shelf full of unread books right here in my little house.

- Googled "how to mail beer", "how to pack beer in checked luggage", and "how to send beer to someone across the country without the beer exploding" and then got really upset that there was absolutely NO help out there whatsoever!

- Ate Chinese food for lunch AND dinner in the same day. And am sort of still craving it 24 hours later.

- Bought a lottery ticket and then spent a good fifteen minutes looking at boats for sale online because YOU JUST NEVER KNOW.

No,no,no. Those are not things that will drive someone crazy, those are things that will be endearing. You'll see.

Some places will mail you beer. So if you can't send the beer to someone from the purchase point you could order beer for yourself and then reuse the packing.

Bonus beer.

Hey now, there is nothing wrong in my mind with any of the things you have done...I just spent $150 on running stuff that I really don't need (after spending $150 on stuff at the running store that I really didn't have to have at this time, but all stuff was on great sales).

Not all places will allow beer to be sent to it...

Oh, and the sending chips and salsa, once I sent double stuff oreos and twizzlers at a shipping cost higher than the cost of the junk because a friend had moved, I was thinking of her and it was right around her birthday.

These are clearly things I adore about you... just for the record! And also, there must be some way to mail beer, think about all of those internet beer of the month clubs!

You will find someone who has just as many flip-flops and reasons to wear them. You thinks you look good in everyone of those coats and is the one who encouraged you to eat back to back servings of Chinese.

I'm not a big shopper, so I can't exactly relate to the coats and flip flop purchases. The chips and salsa package is awesome! I have no idea about the beer thing. And, I'm with you on the BOOKS and lottery ticket. You can never have too many books, and you NEVER know! :)

i think those things would make you more of a catch. ;)

That's funny! But you know we all so crazy things - trust me. For instance I'm an online shopper and then take half the stuff back once I get it but I usually only do that when shipping is free. Yet it drives Tom crazy but he still loves me.

Oh- y'all are so nice. Telling me I'm not looney and giving me tips on how to ship beer. That's just the coolest.
