Time for a Fresh Look

All this stress in my life is taking its toll. I need some retail therapy, but I don’t fell like chopping for clothes. I think I will go to the mall and find some new sheets and a comforter or quilt or something to give my bedroom a fresh look. I might even buys some paint and put some color back into my life. I am sick of looking at plain white walls all the time. It is time for a fresh new look!

My bedroom has been green, with some touches of pink and burgundy for at least 2 years. Although that color combination is very restful and soothing, it has become boring to me. I think I want to find something that is cream, tan and gold, with something else for an accent color – maybe a little bit of dark red or dark green. I will have to see what the bedspread and quilt patterns are like at the department before I make up my mind.

Too White Teeth

Have you noticed how white everyone’s teeth are these days? All the actors have had their teeth brightened so white that they almost look blue. And now when you see a guest on one of the talk shows who has not had their teeth whitened, their teeth are noticeably yellow.

My dentist offered to whitened my teeth the last time I was in there for a cleaning. I said no thanks, but now I regretting it. I don’t know how much he charges, but I know that he will do a good job. So maybe tomorrow I’ll give his office a call and ask about getting my teeth whitened.

Online Ordering Sucks Sometimes

This just happened to me so I’m still a little pissed off about trying to order something online. I’m checking my email on I see an ad in the sidebar. Now, most of the time I don’t even look at those damn things, but this time it was an ad for something I had just looked at last week and wanted to buy it but decided to wait until after Christmas on the chance that it would go on sale. Plus I didn’t want to overspend at Christmas so buying something for myself didn’t really fit into the budget.

Now, I know that these stores use cookies to track what I’m looking at and I’m used to seeing ads targeted just to me and what I’ve been looking at on the internet. What these fools don’t realize is that most of the time if I looked at something and did not buy it right then, I have a good reason. Most of the time it’s not really what I wanted or I found it somewhere else at a better price or a different color or something.

Anyway, this ad says that the item is half off, so that made it more attractive. I’m still concerned about my Christmas budget, but if this is half off now, it will probably be sold out after Christmas and then I won’t be able to get it at all. So I decided to go ahead and buy it and I clicked on the ad. It took me to the stores site, where I have an account. I clicked to put it in the shopping cart and they gave me a screen that says are you sure you want to check out already? We have a lot more stuff for you to look at and buy while you are here! But I don’t want anything else – I just want to order this one thing. Then I go to a screen that asks for my email and password. Of course, it says the password is wrong.

When all is logged in, it asks for my delivery address and my billing address and fuck that. I have an account already set up there – all that info should be saved and all I have to do is click. I’m not fucking typing all that crap in there every time I order something. So I’m pissed off and what I barely wanted in the first now looks like just a fucking hassle. So I quit the whole checkout process and didn’t buy it. I don’t want it that fucking bad.

Stocking Up on Candles

Last year I had a big box of candles in the basement and i decided that they were just taking up space and going to waste. So I started taking a candle out of the box every time I went down to do my laundry and set it in my bathroom to burn it. I love a burning candle in the bathroom – especially when I take a nice long bath and spend an hour pampering myself.

So, today I was doing laundry and went to get my candle and this is the last one! I had no idea that I had gone through the entire box of candles already! I really need to get to the store and buy some more candles. I wish someone would put candles on sale so I could stock up!

 

Bitch Battles

One of the nicest girls I know is a singer and songwriter and has a Facebook page where she actually writes about personal stuff going on in her life. This is different than most singers and songwriters because a lot of them have hired public relations people and street teams who run the web sites and Facebook pages on behalf of the performer. But she writes the stuff herself and I admire her openness and honesty.

Today she was a little distraught and wrote about how she had just been attacked on her web site by someone who was very nasty to her. She certainly did not deserve to get such a scathing comment from someone who doesn’t even really know her. She posted on Facebook that she was struggling on how to handle it. Everyone told her to ignore it, take the high road, blah blah blah. I told her to not ignore it but to not say anything that would make her look bad. Just thank her for writing and not respond to anything else. That will frustrate the bitch and not give her any ammo for retaliation. The bitch was probably just a troll anyway. If you don’t give a troll any attention, they get bored and go away.
