Things I've Been Doing on the Internet

The last few hours have been wasted on the internet. I really should have stuck to reading a book. When was the last time I read a book anyway? And what was it? Other than the kids' books. or Winnie the Pooh novels that I've been reading to said kids. huh. And does reading on a Nook or Kindle take away from the feeling you get when you are reading an actual turn the page kind of book? Do you see how I got sucked into this thought? Well, that's exactly how I've gotten sucked into the internet for the last 3 hours and accomplished absolutely zero.

  • Craigslist. I need a set of bunk beds. I found the "I think will be a good choice ones." I messaged the seller yesterday and asked to come and look at them. He messaged back. I messaged him my cell phone number. But he must not have thought I was serious. Because he never called me. And he re-posted the beds today. hmmph.
  • Penny Pinchin Mom and other coupon and grocery ad sites/blogs. You see, I spent $122 at the grocery store tonight and I came home with way less bags than a person should come home with when they just spent $122 at the grocery store. and I found this one lady who was bragging about buying $78 of grocery and supplies at CVS for $17. And now I am stuck on finding better ways to spend my next $122.
  • The IRS website. It seems to be down. And I need information off of it to finish a return for someone. This bites by the way.
  • facebook. I've refreshed it about 100 times. I think I may have a problem. nah. I refuse to get a twitter account by the way.
  • -- I am once again planning a vacation I do not have the money to take.
  • ConsumerReports and Good Housekeeping websites. I need to buy a new vacuum. And I don't want to waste money on another crappy and doesn't suck sweeper.
  • And I got sucked (punny huh?) into because they reportedly have the best price on the vacuum Consumer Reports says I should get.
  • again. Looking for a book to read next time so I don't get sucked into the internet.
  • Verizon's cellphone website. I need a new phone. But I can't bring myself to buy a data plan. So my choices are limited. And I apparently think that if I keep looking on the site some cool new "feature phone" will magically appear.
  • -- so they can tell me what kind of cell phone to get if I can bring myself to get a data plan phone.
See how I got lost for 3 (now 4) hours?

31 days and no blog. Here's My Kiss and Make Up

I'm awful. I know. Good thing this isn't a paying gig.

Things that made me laugh pretty darn hard tonight. It's late. Keep that in mind.

You know Virgin, the brand, like the one that has an airline and cell phone? Well they have a wine club. Virgin Wine Club It could be the fact that it is late, but the whole idea that Virgin has a wine club just made me laugh. And my husband is looking at me funny so it might not be as funny as I first thought.

Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off
. Yes I know. I'm a little behind in the country music world. I'd never heard it before today.

G-Spot: Pornos and Pretzels

The Fan Falls for the Hoff I just watched like 12 of these videos. My side hurts.

This 5 year old that is bound and determined to have a career before marriage.

Furry Happy Monsters on Sesame Street. REM on Sesame Street? How did I miss this before?

And as long as I am on Sesame Street -- Neil Patrick Harris will always have a piece of my heart. Please note that he is dressed as a fairy. : )

Whose Line is it Anyway? with Richard Simmons. As the props. I've laughed at this numerous times before so we had to dig it up tonight.

$#*! My Dad Says - Lullaby of Root Beer Love this show. I really want an English Bulldog.

I'd find a number 10. But nine seems good for today. We'll tackle 10 tomorrow.
