This last picture has a story. This story is called “Another Reason Why I Love My Girlfriend.”

We decided to buy a LCD TV. I have wanted one for a very long time, I asked her about it and she was all about it. So we go to Best Buy and talked with the dude (who worked for the cable company, not Best Buy) who helped us pick out the right TV for us. He did not try to sell us something we didn’t need or want. In fact, he saved us a couple of hundred bucks by talking me OUT of something. So, away he goes to get our TV. He came back empty handed and tells us it’s out of stock but goes on to say that they have one that has been returned, a “open box” as they call it.  I am skeptical, to say the least. I ask the guy if I can have a look at it, because you know, I am a TV expert and I will be able to tell if there is anything wrong with it by a simple visual inspection. He opens the box, pulls the TV out and tells me that it still has it’s full warranty.

We’ll take it!

The Girl pays for the TV with her card and roll the thing out the car. While walking through the parking lot, I said to The Girl;

“Did we just pay $209 for this TV?”

“I think so. Yes, we did.” While checking the receipt.

“We gotta go back in there.”

“Yes we do!”

Here is the breakdown; The original price was $699. It was on sale for $599. Because we got the “open box” the price was $490 for a total savings of $209. The kid at the register rang us in at the SAVINGS price.

We go back in, explain to the lady what happened who, because she can’t believe we came back, calls the manager to ask him or her if  “there is anything we can do for them because they came back”. They took another $100 off! On top of that we got a rebate from the cable company! Total price for our 37 inch LCD TV: $350.

My girl not hesitating to do the right thing: Priceless.

Hence, the title of my story.

You thought I chose the title because she let me get the TV, didn’t ya?

I can read the score without my glasses on!

I would like to thank Auntie Teacher for lending me her TV for all these years. I would also like to add that this picture was taken today.

Mr. Chili was at this game!

The Sox won in a extra innings thriller! Unlike last nights game where they blew a 9 run lead and ended up losing 11-10.

The End.

Half Naked Legs!

80 and sunny

 I have been looking forward to today all week! Today will be the first day of the season that I wear shorts!

on633619-02p01v01

 Today will also be the first day of the season that I slather my entire body with sunblock. The plan for the day is to do laundry, go to the big box hardware store, go to The Girls to install a new shelf and clothes rod in her closet, and then be outside for as long as possible. Later tonight we are meeting up with MST and Rock Star to (maybe) get a bite to eat and (definitely) see a movie.

What are you doing? 

 Oh, fridge update;

 Hi! My name is Auntie and I am a moron!

 It seems I turned the dial the wrong way on the fridge. Thankfully I figured this out on my own before the repair man was called. The temp was correct on the freezer but for some reason, when I turned the fridge to the proper temp (so cold the milk almost freezes) the temp dropped in the freezer too. The temp controls are separate.. I can’t explain this.

 It’s not the dumbest thing I have ever done but pretty close. My ice cream is now properly frozen!

 For anyone who cares, the Sox beat the Yanks in 11 last night. Speaking of baseball, I would like to offer my heartfelt condolences to Morgan. She wrote, in a comment last week;

“I will very respectfully disagree with you about the Sox success. Especially because my Angels are having a rough year. Four starting pitchers on the DL!!!”

 I am really sorry, friend. Trust me, I know how it feels. I am sending some good baseball energy to your beloved Angels. I do hope they get it together but not so much that they end up beating us in the playoffs. If they do, I’m going to hunt you down and kick your ass!*

So It Begins

6 04 2009

Happy opening day!

 The Girl just sent me an email; “Hope that this day brings you joy and excitement. I am sending out positive thoughts that the rain does not derail the whole game and that at least a few innings can be played.”

 How sweet of her to think of me like that! I’m thinking that there will not be a game today because of the rain. That’s ok, there will be more. A lot more. I wonder if The  Girl knows just how many games are played in the regular season?

 I don’t think she knows exactly what she has signed up for.





Guess What I Am Doing Right Now

 I am watching baseball! So far my guy Wake has given up 3 in the second, and the infield looks like a bunch of 6 year old T ball players, but so what, I AM WATCHING BASEBALL!

 I would like to share with you part of an email MST sent me today. Of course I have her permission to do so;

 OH…and guess who was in the gym this morning??????? Arch enemy:

DEREK JETER!!!!!!! AND…he totally checked me out as I walked
by…the dog. It was all I could do to not trip him on the treadmill.

I think she should have thrown a 15 pound dumbbell at him.

I Can’t Think Of A Title For This Post

7 12 2008

 I am guessing you don’t give a crap if I even have a title. Do you? 

 A lot of things have happened since my last POST post last week. It was nice to having a break from blogging and now I am back to writing whenever the hell I feel like it. 

  •  First, I am going to tell you another true story. Again, I swear I can’t make this stuff up. Anyway, I am talking to this woman about her job and here is what she says;

“You know that woman who works here part time?’

“Yeah, she seems really nice.”

“She is but God love her, she is as dumb as a POST!”

 I wish we had that conversation last week.

  •  Hey Chili? When did wordpress go and change the format of the dashboard? Chili? Hey Chili! Put the damn iphone down and answer my question!

 Speaking of Chili, last night I roasted a chicken but I couldn’t remember what side went up so I took a picture of it and emailed it to her.

 When I called her back she said ” Yeah. Flip it over.” It came out yummy. Thanks Chili.

  •  It’s that time of year again. Did you notice the snow? It’s snowing outside too. Just a dusting but still it’s fun. Me and the Room-Mate went out to get our Christmas tree today. She promised me last year we could go cut one this year. Then she said there were some nice ones at the plaza up the road. I really did not want to get a lot tree. I really enjoy walking around the tree farm with a hot cup of apple cider then cutting it down myself. I didn’t argue because I have a ton of school stuff to do. We were gone less than a half hour.

 The back is totally flat but who cares. We will decorate it tonight. Oh, can someone please remind me to wipe the lens of my iphone before I take pictures? Thanks.

  •  Mr. Security really liked being on my blog. I think he will need to make regular appearence from now on.  Anyway, hear he is checking himself out on the net.

 Peace out peeps. I gotta get back to writing my paper so I can watch the Pat’s at four.

 A POST route.

 I have to be honest with you. This POST thing is starting to bore me. I’ll keep doing it because I want my pizza.

 Are you getting bored with my POST posts?
