When working in a convenience store, I’ve received many different types of payment. I’ve found older coins, Native American coins, Canadian pennies among others. I’ve never been paid with gold coins though. I feel like that would be a fun way to try to pay people. Just whip out a few gold coins and say “Keep the change” and chuckle to myself. I’m sure it’s unrealistic, since we aren’t pirates and gold coins aren’t a widely accepted form of payment. I still think the facial expressions would be priceless.
I like wrinkles. I think they’re cute. They add character to people’s faces. But I can understand that many people want to remain looking ‘young’ and healthy so they turn to wrinkle creams. I just think more people should embrace their wrinkles! Wrinkles are cute! Why don’t more people feel this way? Just accept your wrinkles and be proud!
Oh diet pills, they come in all shapes and sizes from name brands to generic Phentermine and people buy them up like candy. Do they help? Probably. Have we had a chance to see the long-term effects of all of these medicines? I don’t think so. I don’t know what my opinion on diet pills is these days, but I worry a little.
In all my dealings with medicine, I’m very thankful that I’m not required to be receiving disability insurance. It leaves me with a sense of pride that I can and will provide for myself, more or less. A friend of mine recently started receiving disability insurance for one of her serious disabilities, and she said she felt so disheartened. It made her disability that much more real to her, I guess.
One thing I have dealt with enough in my life time is medical equipment. From spinal surgery at the age of 15, to ankle surgery at the age of 16, to dealing with the ups and downs of my pregnancy, I’ve just about had enough of doctors, medicine and medical equipment. I’m tired of having things poked in me, needles shoved in me or tongue depressors near me. I don’t want to have anything to do with them. The funny part is: Spencer wants to go to med school.
I went to McDonald’s the other night for a quick snack. I always keep my receipts, for tax purposes, so I was eager to add this receipt to my envelope of receipts. I noticed something though. It seemed that their receipt printer was low on ink, as my receipt was faded out pretty badly. It’s difficult to read at first glance. Slightly annoying, but I suppose it will have to do.
It’s been years since I wore a watch like a Breguet or something. I stopped wearing watches and jewelry when I got pregnant with Monster. I just didn’t want to have to worry about choke hazards or anything when he was a little baby. Even now, I don’t generally wear them. Spencer bought me this beautiful necklace when he came to see me in Iowa in October and I’ve only worn it a couple of times. I’d love to get a longer chain for it so that I could wear it under my clothes at work, but as it is right now – it’s just not worth the hassle. Even though it’s absolutely gorgeous, in my opinion.
Oh, ipods – how I lust for you. Especially you, iPod Touch. Being intrigued by organization since a young age, the iPod Touch/iPhone are just so beautiful in my eyes. A way to multi-task and organize my day-to-day schedules. They look so pretty, too. Clean and sleek with a very defined edge about them, don’t you think? Maybe my product lust is making me see all the good and not the bad, but I seriously covet the iPhone’s my friends have.
One fun thing to do when you’re sitting around bored is to read some fat burner reviews. For some reason, the technological language that they use sometimes to describe things is just astounding. I am a fan of being concise, which gets me in trouble sometimes with my schoolwork as I have word counts to meet. I generally feel like what I have to say can be summed up in a few sentences; it’s part of why my blogs here are so short. I wonder how many people that use fat burners and diet supplements actually read reviews about them prior to taking them.
Something I never got into as a kid was atv riding. My step-mother’s sister had a couple of atv’s but I just didn’t enjoy riding around on them. It was always bumpy and loud. Really annoying, but I can see why some people like it so much. Kind of fun if you don’t mind the loudness and bump factor, right? Though I feel like I’m not in farm-country anymore so the popularity of atv’s and riding them has dwindled in favor of… I don’t know, what do people do in Texas?
