Posted By Colleen on January 31, 2008too much coffee this morning? Yeah. Probably.
I called the vet this morning and Ginger is not allowed to be released into
the wild my care until a little later today, due to her surgery getting post-poned. Like I can’t get her until 5pm-ish. Sure hope that “emergency” was worth it! Oh, and I am joking there. I really am. I actually like animals more than people…sometimes more than my family (I LOVE YOU GUYS!!).
Meanwhile, I am sitting here trying to scrounge up some work with Maggie plastered to my side, stealing all my body heat, fully dressed with socks, slippers, a big blanket over the two of us, and can ALMOST see my breath. I’m considering cranking up the heat to a blistering 70 degrees, but am kind of curious as to how long I can type with partially-frozen fingers. And then there’s that silly surgery that needs to be paid. Let’s see, pay the gas company or pay the vet. I actually kind of like the vet better since they don’t charge me a higher rate during certain months of the year.
Also, I keep obsessing over wanting a silly pink Blackberry. Found out that I’m not cool enough to have my company partially pick up the tab on my cell bill (read: my company doesn’t need to get ahold of me at all hours, no matter how important I convince them I am). Right now I pay a measly $35/month for like 450 minutes on my pink RAZR. For the Blackberry, I’d be paying twice that…partly because I’d want to add the data package so that I could actually USE the phone for emails, etc. You know, for what it’s made to do. Plus, if I get that data package, I get an additional $100 off the price of the phone…add in my trade-in discount (or whatever it’s called when you have your phone for 2 years)…and a mail-in rebate, and I’m looking at getting a $420 phone for like $100. And while saving over $300 REALLY appeals to me…I mean, that’s over 75% off (my head is nearly exploding from all the savings and excitement…really!). If I didn’t take advantage of that, the Sales Gods would spite me for sure and I’d never see a sale past 30% off again. But the problem is doubling my monthly rate. I don’t get any additional minutes, but I can email to my little heart’s content. And obsessively watch even more for those emails letting me know that I have a comment on my site.
Maybe I’ll grab another cup of coffee to thaw out my brain and consider this a little more. If nothing else, all the uncontrollable twitching and the one-leg shaking should help keep me warm, right?
Oh, and since I’m all over the place with this post anyways, I’m having a little sale on my jewelry (well, it’s not mine…I mean, I didn’t design it). I’m not allowed to advertise here, but it’s a Valentine’s Day sale. So leave a comment asking about it or click on that little “contact me” link and I’ll give you the details.
