6. Big Wine Glasses
I haven't concluded yet if I like big wine glasses because they are cool to look at and hold, or if it's because they can kick all the smaller wine glasses' asses. Hahaha. Glasses asses. That's funny. Or maybe it's what's INSIDE the wine glass that makes me like the extra large ones. Eh? Eh? Am I on to something? I think so. Red wine and tiramisu? And then a desk nap? My afternoon is really starting to shape up.
(Ok back to being a good human being and not talking about my self indulgent fat ass for a second)
7. Those Green Grocery Bags
Unlike The Cowboy, I don't care that they cost 99 cents. That is a small price to pay to help The Environment. Look at all that Al Gore has done for us. I can give back. Thank you Al Gore. Anyway, I love these bags, and the thing that I love the most about them is the superior feeling they give me when I remember to take them to the store with me (which is about 50% of the time lately) and I'm walking back to my car with my 3 green bags chock full of groceries, and I see other people coming out of the store and they have plastic bags, and I can give them dirty looks and judge them in my head and say to myself that they aren't helping the environment. I'm helping the environment. This doesn't work when I forget to take them to the store, of course. And I should probably start a list somewhere of reasons why I should always remember to take them to the store. That list would look something like this:
1. Al Gore is watching
Like a child on Christmas. That's me when I get a new pack of Sharpies. A girl I worked with quit a few weeks ago, and I promptly raided her desk and stole all her old Sharpies, before any of the other nuts I work with could get their hot little hands on them. They now live in my desk and I count them every day. If this makes me crazy, then pass the potatoes. There are 14 of them, and I haven't named them (yet).
I have always appreciated a good sock. If you are ever in doubt about what to buy me, always go with socks. It's a safe bet. Oh, and Sharpies. Red Wine. Tiramisu. Well, pretty much just check the above list for gift ideas. But really, socks make me happy and I think that's why I enjoy the knitting so much. Well that and it really cooperates with my OCD, but the knitting of the socks! Oh, what could be better?
10. Jar Candles
Another thing I find that I buy randomly for no reason whatsoever just because it looks pretty/smells good/was on sale/felt like it/it was Tuesday/your face. I don't need a reason to buy a jar candle.
11. Tomatoes from the garden
In the summer, there is nothing better than fresh tomatoes from the garden. Tomatoes from the garden taste so much better than store bought tomatoes (for reasons other than the fact that they don't carry salmonella)and I tend to forget that the rest of the year. But once we pick those first few tomatoes and slice em up, maybe put a little olive oil, salt & pepper, some basil and fresh mozzerella (if I have it...usually I don't)....oh, it's damn near heaven.In conclusion, I am going to take my Sharpie and make a list. Then I'm gonna put on my flip flops and go to HEB where I will purchase fresh mozz, red wine, tiramisu, soy Silk creamer, maybe a jar candle, whatever. Then I'll take my green grocery bags, judge some people, and call it a day.
(I realize I didn't get everything I listed up there in my little spiel. And I don't care because you know why? It's my blog and I'm the boss. Lunch time.)
