last night we were making our bi-weekly target run and i turned from examining english muffins and frozen chicken strips [SO delicious, btw -- those chicken strips taste just like my favorite ones from tgi fridays, sans the yummy jack daniels sauce] and i saw this guy plastered to the side of the freezer:
this is my friend daniel. we went to elementary school, junior high and high school together but i lost track of him around 10th grade. he was always one of my favorite people -- even though all the other girls fawned all over him [for obvious reasons], we were just always buddies and did algebra homework together.
and NOW he is a model. i saw his giant face painted all over life-size gap ads for the first time when i lived in nyc and had a minor heart attack right in the middle of 42nd street. since then i've gotten used to it. i've spotted him in j crew ads and most recently target. yay for daniel!
then we proceeded to purchase seven packs of gum, a personal record. why, you ask? because they were on sale! and also we love gum. and -- we've discovered a new flavor of orbit and IT was on sale too!
i've always loved orbit gum, mostly because of it's yummy flavors and it's lovely packaging. but these new mist flavors [while verging on being too sour for my tastes] take it to a whole new level! i've been saving my gum wrappers -- i think i'm going to use them to make a card one of these days.
in other news:
- the price of stamps goes up again in a few weeks, so go buy your forever stamps now.
- i went to the dentist today and encountered a brutal dental hygienist who repeatedly stabbed my non-flossed gums until my mouth filled with blood.
- i started out the week terrified of the swine flu but now [ironically, because the WHO caution level is now at a FIVE] i have resigned myself to the fact that if i didn't care enough to get a flu shot this year, i must not be that susceptible to the flu and therefore will take it if it comes. but if ONE person in my office shows flu-like symptoms, sorry tracy -- i'm working from home until further notice.
- look what i did to my cutie tangerine/orange!
"she could peel an apple in one long, curly strip." -- tom hanks, sleepless in seattle
[i can't do the apple -- i've tried, numerous times -- but i CAN do the cutie! yesss.]
and lastly, ONE WEEK till my mini stay-cation. that is all. happy wednesday!
