Free Shipping Day 12-17-2010

Tonight as I was messing around on the Internet I found an article online about tomorrow being Free Shipping Day for hundreds of national retailers.  It directed you to a website where it listed the participating retailers, and surprisingly there are numerous retailers that I shop at that are participating such as Bath and Body Works, Victoria's Secret, Fossil, etc.

The major selling point in this annual tradition is that they guarantee delivery by Christmas Eve, which kind of results in Free Expedited Shipping and the convenience of not having to leave home to do your last minute Christmas shopping. 

I personally don't mind shopping and have done most of my shopping in the malls with coupons and by avidly watching my favorite retailers websites and signing up for electronic sales notifications and coupons.  However, there have been a few items that I have not been able to find so easily and because of this I have resorted to online shopping for these last minute items.

I was even lucky enough to find a seller through eBay that offered Free Priority Mail shipping so I should receive that item by the 23rd at the latest.

See below for the link to review the participating retailers and down towards the bottom there is a blog written about what the Free Shipping Day is all about.

Happy Shopping Everyone! 

Free Shipping Day

Lip Injections...Seriously?

Today is of my favorite days of the week. I usually relax, catch up on my laundry, and more importantly spend some quality time with my DVR. 

Today I watched the last three weeks of CSI and CSI Miami and well a whole slew of reality tv shows because I  have a mild addiction to reality tv, but that is an entire blog in and of itself after all...

Anyway, after watching only one episode of CSI Miami I had to hit pause and come write a blog...I literally couldn't stand it anymore.

What is the deal with the constant obsession in Hollywood with lip injections?

Maybe before I had HD television I wasn't so bothered by this phenomena but Sweet Baby Jesus I can't even watch Emily Procter anymore. Well I can. She's still beautiful...but I can't stop staring at her lips. I can't concentrate on what she's saying on the show because I'm thinking about how it looks like someone just punched her in the mouth. I haven't even finished watching the last episode because well...I just am so distracted.

See the before photo and the after photo.  While I understand pregnancy causes swelling, well last I heard it doesn't make your lips blow can't even see it that well...try seeing it up close in'll understand.

This reminded me of why I stopped watching Army Wives. Kim Delaney left season 2 looking half way normal and then once season three started she had the "I just got punched in the mouth" look as well and her new mouth was so distracting I couldn't pay attention when I watched that show either...maybe I'm just weird though  Or maybe HD is ruining my television watching experience.

 *It's just a coincidence that both of these ladies were on CSI:Miami - I think?  Maybe?  Yes, most definitely.

I just dont understand the need for it. I'm all for some cosmectic plastic surgery if

A. you can afford it
B. you need it
C. it is really going to make you feel better about yourself

But Sweet Baby Jesus all wrapped up in His manger I just can't take it anymore!  I don't want to have to stop watching another show yet again because of unnecessary, highly distracting and (I hate to say it, kind of gross) lip injections.

Sorry Emily Procter and Kim Delaney, but after the whole Lisa Rinna fiasco I'm surprised you had the ballz to do it, just sayin'.

 Does this bother anyone else or am I really just that weird?  Yeah, you're probably right, it's just me.  I'm crazy...I know.  But seriously.  I loved me some CSI Miami and now...well I just can't take it.  I want to run up to her and scream Why?! Why?! For the love of God, Why?!

Now on to some randomness:

I'm in love with One Republic's new song "Secrets".  Well ok so it's not so new anymore because the radio is playing it out.  But still.  I love it.  I've included the video because I've listened to this song twice in the amount of time it took me to write this blog and I could listen to it fifteen more times and not care.

New Blog - Reader Beware

I love to blog.  Back when Myspace wasn't lame I used to blog quite a bit.  But since Myspace is dead I now have to start all over.

At one point over there I had about 24 subscribed readers.  After all of my posts I usually had quite a few comments and discussions.  By no means was I a blogging celebrity over there, but at least some people, and some of them I didn't even know in real life, actually read my thoughts and ideas.

For months so many exciting, humorous, irritating, and down right crazy things have happened to me or to people I know... or to people I don't know even, that I've wanted to write about.

But I didn't.

I didn't because my blog was dead.  No one is there to read my ideas and if there might possibly be a few people left over there still using Myspace and better yet, blogging over there, well sadly they are lame and I don't want to be friends with them anyway ha ha.

Seriously though, from now on I hope to use this new blog to write and maybe just maybe if I'm lucky enough I will gain a few subscribed readers here too.  Never know until you try...

Also now may be a good time to warn you that I'm a smart@ss with a dry, sometimes cynical yet hilariously funny sense of humor and that I may use "adult" language, especially on posts when I'm heated about particular topics. Don't worry.  My language probably won't offend you because you will be too busy laughing at how crazy I am.  No really.  You might even drool on yourself or have an "accident" in your pants.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

Stay tuned for blogs to come...and subscribe...if for no other reason so that I get a get self validation and the  swelled head I need to think I'm more important and relevant than I really am. Ha Ha


At the end of my blogs I try to add something random that doesn't have anything to do with the post I'm writing.  Today's randomness:  The new Coldplay song "Christmas Lights".  Love it!  Love it!  Love it!  I've even posted the video below for your own enjoyment.  I know you'll love it too.  If you don't then you suck and can't be my friend anymore.
