HOLY SHEIST. This ain't gon' last long, folks.


  1. $4.05 for an egg mcmuffin? seriously? sheesh. my occasional croissanwich at a cincinnati burger king runs me $1.60.

  2. Holy God. You could be a little spokesmodel for Starbucks, couldn't you? Three visits in one day?? If I might recommend the iced coffees at McDonalds? I like my coffee to taste nothing like coffee, and I hate things that are too sweet. Their Hazelnute iced deals are really yummy.

  3. Jaclyn: Dude, this was noooooot all in the same day. Haha. That's outrageous. I can only eat three meals (& oneish cups of coffee) per day, I swear.My bank just posts all transactions on one day, for reasons unknown.

  4. You can save a ton on books by bying used at a used book store or, if you don't mind waiting a bit, through amazon. You could have had Glamorama for about $6.50 on amazon. Unless it's something new or I need to have it right away, I'm always getting used books. I mean, what's the difference between a new book and a used book?

  5. I really really should do this too...but I'm scared to admit what I spend in a week on frivolous things.

  6. I should probably run a monthly list of purchases -- it would be a reality check -- which is why I prefer ignorance for now.

    Looks like you visit Starbucks and Kramers as often as I do. You've got good taste. :)

  7. My name is Martha Hall I was browsing internet and found your blog. The author did a great job. I will subscribe to your RSS feeds. Thank you for your contribution. I am a web designer myself. And here some examples of the websites that I designed for bad credit loans canadian payday loans company.
