How normal is to make a list of the things you need/want that you are waiting to buy when you get paid in 2 weeks? I have had a growing list of wants (which I think are actually needs), and since I’ve been so good these past few months I am going to the mall. Holly has tried to teach me the difference between wants and needs, but I think she doesn’t understand me quite well enough YET. Mascara for instance, definitely a need. Anything that makes me look less like a character from the Walking Dead in the AM is a necessity. Credit Card bill will be paid first, so I feel somewhat responsible and can just use it again. New running shoes, need-obviously, preventing substantial weight gain. Some other things on the list include new bras, the very vague “going out clothes,” and of course I’m still on the hunt for those jorts for my pug. The last one is a need though you might think it’s frivolous, but the 2nd Annual Christmas Pug photo shoot is in the works, and I think rooms Holly might be a part this year. What a honor right? 🙂
Speaking of jean shorts, I was talking to Holly about my favorite item of clothing ever created, and maybe I’m crazy, but jean shorts are absolutely without a doubt the best thing ever created out of fabric. I currently own 8 pairs of jean shorts and I feel the need to add more to the collection. I love jean shorts even on the guy at the gym who had some on yesterday. What an all around fantastic piece of clothing. They can be hot on the right body type, or they can be charming on children, and of course they can make for great conversation when someone wears ones they shouldn’t. Anyways, it’s the summer of the jean short fo sho. I nominate Fridays at our office as jort day. Much better than plaid short or favorite sports team jersey Friday which the guys used to do.
I’m getting anxious about the event I have agreed to host next week. I don’t know why I say yes to these things sometimes. I think I get attached to the good cause of the evening and forget until the event approaches, that I have to entertain hundreds of people. I know I will likely be a huge letdown and never get asked back to the same event again, however I still say yes. Especially this one. I love dogs more than people and how can I say no to an evening where all the money goes to homeless doggies? Well, I can’t. And now I’m faced with 3 hours of me on stage trying to convince people to buy auction items. You know me, a real salesman:) I can’t convince anyone to do anything EVER. I can’t even convince someone to take me out NOR can I convince my own roommate to go to dinner with me 99 percent of the time. So yea, I’m feeling pretty good about the event.
