The Gift that Keeps on Giving




<---- This is the pillow that goblins bought.

And it's niiiiiiiiice.

When I got my first advanced, I treated myself and my best friend to dinner at a nice restaurant (crab dip, OMG, it was amazing), and a movie. Didn't really splurge on anything, since a good chunk of the money is going toward silly things like credit card bills and student loans.


Last week, I received the Delivery & Acceptance check for THREE DAYS TO DEAD. I hadn't intended to splurge today, but I was browsing through Bed, Bath & Beyond, checking prices on electric blankets and space heaters, and I found this nifty little gadget. It was the sample they had out that did me in.

When I took it to the checkout, a very bubbling clerk asked if it was a gift. I just smiled and said, "Yep, a gift for me."

The only bummer is that I can only use it for twenty minutes at a time. :-)

I just hope you don't mind loaning it to said best friend when you're not using it. :-p

Very nice :) Something to jot down on my Christmas list since any advances coming my way will be next year (I'm hoping anyway) ;)

Very cool, Kelly! I noticed those at Walgreens just last week.

I think "anonymous" needs to remember her Blogger ID. LOL!

Christa - *fingers crossed for you*

Bill - I still have a 20% coupon for BB&B, so I'm pondering another as a Christmas gift. Possibly for my sister. I think she'd love me forever and ever....

OH! That would be a very thoughtful gift, Kelly.

You know, BB&B is one of those stores that I could spend five grand in before I knew it. (If money, of course, was something that I didn't have to worry about having enough of.)

Ugh. Money. That...thing....
