I know it's not the weekend, but I'm taking a vacation day Friday, so my weekend has started...and really, when it comes down to the crux of the situation, it's all about me isn't it?

Is it just me, or is everyone else getting a ton of new spam offering the same drugs that ensnared Rush Limbaugh? I sure am glad he didn't admit to some seedier addiction.

Amy and I went into "Ross Dress for Less" yesterday. I'm not much of a shopper, but this is the type of store that is dangerous for me. I can convince myself of deals that are too good to pass up.

Here is how it almost happened yesterday within the confines of my skull:

Hey, this pair of pants on the clearance rack is only 7 bucks!
The label says they're size 38/30, but they're longer than that.
They're name brand.

(Holding them up)
Yeah, they're longer than 30's. These would fit me!
Name brand for seven bucks!
Even when we're broke it's hard to turn down a deal like this.
Name brand for seven bucks.
I should show these to Amy and see if she agrees.


They're yellow.

I won't wear yellow pants.

Not even name brand for seven bucks yellow pants?



I don't remember seeing any other guy I know wearing yellow pants....unless they were golfing.

I don't golf and taking up a sport to justify yellow pants seems a bit extreme.

Maybe it's the light...maybe they're beige.

No..that's yellow alright.

I guess that's why they're seven bucks
