Yeah, well I totally FAIL at saving. But the purchases today were NECESSARY purchases...
I mean, AD got his new computer put together this past week. It's a BEAST! I mean, it really has to be with Starcraft II coming out in a month, he wanted to have the best video card to handle the graphics heavy awesomeness. And after I saw how smoothly Sims 3 ran on it...well, of course I NEEDED to upgrade. Placed my order with NewEgg this morning - thank goodness their credit card has no interest for 12 months on orders of $500 or more (which mine was...). So soon, I will be on a machine that can run Sims 3 with no problems and will be ready for Starcraft II next month, plus Civ V in September and eventually Diablo III, whenever the heck Blizzard launches that thing.
And then we went to the mall because AD was looking for a shirt to wear on "casual Fridays" at his job and we went into Hot Topic. AD found me some really RED hair dye
and...well, I NEEDED it! I want to have CrAzY hair when I go to Comic-Con and I think bright red will be pretty durn crazy. Plus, having AD dye my hair for me with this $13 hair dye is a lot cheaper than going to a real salon. Plus, I won't get the LOOK
from the stylist when I'm about to go for it (they always look worried, like half-way through the process I'm going to start screaming and I'm going to rip the brush from their hands and run out of the store - note to stylist: if I'm in there asking for RED HAIR - I WANT RED HAIR! It grows back, I know it does, it always does, so just dye it *kicks soapbox back under desk*)
And while we were at Hot Topic, I saw this little Yoda doll
and when I examined him more closely I saw that he TALKED! And then I realized it was the same Yoda doll I've had on my Amazon wishlist for over a year so I HAD TO BUY HIM DIDN'T I????
And then I wandered back into the Clearance isle and there was a Supergirl t-shirt for 50% off in my size...so...yeah, I bought that too. I love Supergirl. When I was a little kid, I had Supergirl pajamas (and, to be honest, I'm in my pajamas right now which partially consist of a tank-top with the "S" logo on it...)
SEE - ALL OF THESE PURCHASES WERE JUSTIFIED! ;-P
Then AD was nice enough to take me to dinner at The Cheesecake Factory and...OF COURSE I HAD TO HAVE CHEESECAKE! But he paid for that so it's not as bad hehe.
It's been a very busy Saturday, to say the least. Tomorrow I've got to be all presentable because we're going to company picnic for AD's work. Hopefully we will not melt. Our nephew will be there, so at least I know there will be SOMEONE I can talk to about important things (Buzz Lightyear vs. Ironman).
