Maybe should've thought that through a little better.

I've been sick since Monday (the sniffling, coughing, can't-sleep-because-I-can't-breathe kind; not the puking your guts out kind, luckily(?)), have been off work without pay for now *two* weeks, and am anxiously waiting to see if that two will stretch to *three* weeks or if I can keep crossing my fingers and hoping that next week I will be back bringing in some money.

Yet I still have a smile on my face, because two things I had ordered came in today. It's hard NOT to be happy when you're reading a book called "You Might Be A Zombie and Other Bad News", from the editors of, and knowing that when you finish that one you will be reading a book called "5 Very Good Reasons To Punch A Dolphin In The Mouth" by Matthew Inman, creater of the oh-so-hilarious

Yes, I am that person. The one who spends a ridiculous amount of her free time--and time best spent in more useful pursuits--on websites with absolutely no purpose other than pointing out the obvious, making you feel like an uneducated idiot, and making you laugh hysterically. And to make it even better, now they put it in book form. To put on the coffee table that I no longer have. So I can have the opportunity to pay for content I could get for free on the internet. So I don't have to go through all the effort of *turning on my computer* anymore. Which I still will, anyway.

So they win... But now if I'm talking to a friend about a hilarious website I can give them a book they won't read instead of a link they won't click. Awesome. 


  1. I *may* have bought t-shirts off because they were only available for a limited time... And since I was buying the limited ones I also bought non-limited ones because, hey, less shipping, right?

  2. It makes perfect sense!! Amazon KILLS my checkbook with the free shipping, combo deals, etc. And I love the look on hubby's face when I say "But look how much money I SAVED! I'm doing us a FAVOR."
