My husband asked if I wanted to go shopping yesterday. ALWAYS! But that meant (for him) we go to Verizon and shop for better wifi/phone plans. KILL ME NOW. If I believed in hell, it would be populated by salesmen with never-ending pitches, and the music over the speakers would be "Believe" by Cher. And Van Halen's "Jump." That, to me, is hell.

The Hoarders recap is up, and I want to caution some of you that Carrie's story deals with sexual abuse. Skip the fifth - eighth paragraph if you want to read about her remarkable turn around, but don't want to read about her past.

[ETA] And feel free to rec or share links to the Hoarders discussions. :)

RHoBH is due later, and tonight: TUNE IN TO SOUTHLAND, for the love of all that's holy and good. If you were a fan of The Wire or Homicide, this is the show for you. If you just love smart and gritty story-telling, this is the show for you. (I'll have the recap up tomorrow am.) And for those that asked, the American Horror Story finale was missing due to a snafu. Sam will have that up today. :D (Thanks for bringing that to my attention, also!)

I had Godiva truffles yesterday (my husband's apology for making me want to poke things with sharpened sticks) and I'm still on a sugar high. Also, I got a BAD ASS DEAL on some Riedel stemware at Williams-Sonoma. Normally two glasses are about $49, and I bought EIGHT for THIRTY DOLLARS. Thirty smackaroos. Triente dolares. Muy bien! Why? Because the box had a bend in the corner. The glasses were in perfect condition, but the box was "ugly." I DO NOT CARE, IT'S GOING TO THE RECYCLE BIN. You may have heard strange dolphin noises yesterday - that would have been me.

AND YES I CHRISTENED THEM LAST NIGHT. (Markham Cab Sav, yet again. It's a quality red, gotta say.)

What? No. Shopping does not equal Verizon store! Verizon store is a circle of hell for sure. It's AWFUL. That's bait and switch right there! Hey, stoney, would you like some new shoesheywaitIjustneedtotalkcellphoneplansforanhour.

I am still boggling over those glasses being marked down because the box wasn't perfect. The BOX.

Didn't I tell you that yesterday? UGH. And of course it's in the mall, so I was excited about shoes. GAH.

I am, too, but honey chile, I am not gonna look that gift horse in the mouth. SO. PLEASED. *clink!*

(I have an email for you, I'm just trying to get the last recaps up) <3

No you did NOT tell me about the Verizon store! Or if you did I was delirious and totally missed it, but since I hate the Verizon store with a fiery passion I think you were just super excited about the glasses!

(Do your thing. Write your recaps, write your story, love on Sally. There is no timeline for replying to me!)

OH MY GOD. The only thing worse is when the cable/satellite guys try and upsell you. NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. GO AWAY.

The Mr. loves it. He's weird.

Man, the back of the Williams-Sonoma store is ALWAYS the first place to go, Pro Tip. :D

That is not shopping, that is suffering!

Well, something knew you were suffering and banged up a box as a consolation prize.

I can't believe anyone would willing go to the Verizon store unless they were planning to murder people there. They have never once honored any agreement.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
