Okay, so this is almost embarassing, but how did I not hear about the peanut butter recall until yesterday? Here I was sitting at work craving sone chocolate and I take a handful of those cute little peanut butter cups out of the basket and eat about four.
Oh yeah, good stuff. A few hours later I hear the girls at work talking about some peanut butter recall and how the FDA is saying not to eat ANY. I think several hundred people have gotten sick and a few have even died. What the? What rock have I been hiding under?
I can tell you, it's probably because of the greatest invention on earth - the DVR. I don't ever watch normal T.V. I don't see commercials. I don't watch the news. I watch a lot of re-runs of Seinfeld, King of Queens, Sex and the City and I fast forward through any and all commercials. I hit the on demand channel quite a bit too. I'm watching the whole Entourage Season from the beginning and there's not commercials on HBO either. When I'm playing poker online I listen to music or read other blogs and celebrity gossip websites. So, I guess I'm missing out on whatever news doesn't make to Perez Hilton or TMZ. Ooops.
I'm alive today and feeling fine though, so I think I'll be okay. The peanut butter cups in question were wrapped and shiny red and green paper and have been sitting in the basket since before christmas, so they are old. That's probably a good thing.
Anyway, for all you haters out there who think I'm a spoiled brat (I think there's about two of you) - your gonna love this.... I'm buying a house. Sort of. A family member is buying a house for me because I have bad credit. But, I'm going to live in it, pay rent and eventually it will be put into my name. So, that's exciting. The loan approval came through yesterday. I have to start looking for houses immediately because my lease is up on March 1st and I want to be out of the house on that day.
I wasn't really prepared for this. I didn't think it was going to happen so I've actually been trying to make arrangements for myself to move in with someone. I thought roomie might be moving back to Florida. However, this new development changes everything. I think roomie is staying and we are going to continue living together.
It's good. The possibility of living with someone new was kind of scary to me. It's hard to get used to living with someone brand new and getting used to their quirks and their weird habits, etc. Plus, I'd miss Lucy so much!
So, I made arrangements to go house hunting on Sunday and I'll keep you guys posted.
I went to the mall yesterday to have my watch adjusted and to return roomie's christmas present because it didn't fit him. And, it just so happened that there was a LONG line outside of Macy's and Dillards. I asked the women who was fixing my watch what the deal was and she said there was a class action lawsuit brought against the major department stores and they were giving away free Estee Lauder, Clinique and Clarins products. Weird. I wasn't about to wait in that long line, but then I realized I had 20 minutes to waste and the line had gone down considerably, so I hopped in and they were out of most of the stuff, but they still had two things left. So, I picked the Clinique Moisturizer Surge.
It's good stuff. I've used it before and I like it. Plus, you can never have too much moisturizer when living out here in the desert, so it was my lucky day.
