Gift Cards: I Love Thee…

“I am getting you a $100 iTunes gift card for your birthday today,” mom just told me on the phone. “What do you do with them?  You can’t buy beer with them, can you?”

I smiled.

“I usually just get audiobooks for my iPod,” I replied. “And no, you can’t get beer off of iTunes.  I certainly wish you could sometimes.  If I could download beer off the Internet then I would be in serious terrible trouble.”

“What do you want for grocery day?” mom then asked.

I told her I wanted Lean Cuisines instead of Marie Callender meals.  The Marie meals played havoc on my bulimia and drove me crazy this past week. They are fatty, over the top, salty, tasteful, and make me want to binge.  Lean Cuisines are bland, small portioned, and not dangerous.

“Get me three packs of Snicker’s bars!” I then said excitedly.  Sugar is my new drug it seems.  I am very limited by my family of the drugs in which i can partake these days.

“I will get you two 2-liters of diet soda, but your father says they have to be caffeine free.”

“Okay,” I replied. “But get me three.”

“Three?” mom asked. “That is going to push your budget over the limits.”


“Mom, they cost .99 cents per 2-liter!”

“Well, okay,” she said and hung up the phone.

I can’t wait for my Snicker’s bars and soda!  The hours till around 2pm are going to pass so slowly.

I love those Lean Cuisine meals. I have them for my lunches. Much cheaper than eating out here at work. Never tried Marie Callender. They are pretty expensive here in the city.

I especially love the Lean Cuisine Asian meals! The chicken in peanut sauce is one of my favorites!

I see a piano in your video blogs..Do you play the piano? Or did it come with the house? When I was a kid I wanted to play the piano so bad, but mom always said we didnt have room for a piano...

Yes, I play the piano. I will have to do a video blog of me playing some day. I had a minor in piano in college and took lessons all during my youth. My father and mother both play beautifully as well.

Birthday? When is your birthday? Mine is the 7th!!

When I lived near Charlotte, we would have a huge neighborhood party in mid-April because someone had a birthday on all but three days in the month of April! And yes, we were a rowdy gang! At the last party I went to we had a full German Oompah band and everybody drank beer and danced the polka all night!

Happy Birthday to US!

Love ya,
