I think I'm slowly going crazy

One, I'm catching up on Top Chef: Texas recaps. It's slow going because I thought I could get the recipes names off the website. NOPE. They don't put them all up. So Week 8 is here (and last night's will go up later this afternoon.)

Two, I have been talking myself out of buying the sexiest damn pair of boots I have ever laid eyes on (they are walking around-able, even!) because they are one thousand dollars. I do not need to buy myself $1000 boots, not with children that will (we hope) go to graduate school. BUT THEY ARE SO BEAUTIFUL. It's like the boot fairy said, "Everything Laura likes, let's put in this one shoe." And then Mafalda swooped in and cursed it by making them so expensive. [/obscure reference] I'm married to a finance guy and we pay for everything in cash. Everything. No credit carried over from month to month. I'm going to NYC for a week, I want to spend my money on things there. *Cries* /First World Problems

Three, I had a fake argument in the shower earlier (doesn't everyone do that?) where I imagined being shitty to a woman that was rude to me yesterday.

Me: Hey, bitch, I bet I can do more push ups than you. Come on. *flexes*
Her: Ehn flehn fleurgh. (she was a whiny-type)
Me: Oh, and they have to be prison-style
Her: What's that?
Me: Naked and with a dick in your mouth.

That was when I started laughing and dropped the soap.

ION, I bought new lovely bras at Nordstrom's after getting refitted and have dropped down a strap size, but not cup size. THANK YOU, P90X for being the ONLY WORKOUT that doesn't make me lose my nice rack. *preens* 32DD, hells yeah LOL.

Dumpling soup time!

Why did I look at those boots? Why? Now I want them, too!

I've been pondering the Good Credit Rating vs Cash Only issue lately. I've been Cash Only for quite awhile now(except for the mortgage) and I feel so much less stress in my life thanks to that. On the other side is the fact that nearly everyone, even potential employers, look to the number on a Credit Report as the be-all and end-all of a person's worthiness and I'm thinking of applying for other jobs. I checked my report and found that because there's only the mortgage and a small credit card on it, it's almost as if I've been skyping checks and buying multiple sets of those boots with no intent of paying for them. Bah!

In other news, had I been drinking, I would have done a spit-take when I read about your shower argument. As it was, I let out a bark of laughter into the midst of a very quiet office and made myself quite (negatively) conspicuous. I hope you're proud of yourself!

Every now and then we'll buy something on credit and pay it off over three months, or so, but only if we have the amount set aside for the total cost. It's given me a ridiculously high credit score, following that policy. It's all so arbitrary feeling, though - just irritating.



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.
