Mail! Let's talk about it. Everyday my mom makes the trek up to the mail station to see who sent us what. Will we receive goodies or news from home? Which magazines? We get lots and lots of magazines. Or what kind of weird advertising or offers have come our way each day? Well this week started off with me receiving a few items from a location called looneystuff.com. The below note and pack of Hubba Bubba bubble gum came with my purchase. I haven't chewed Hubba Bubba since playing softball. A flood of memories came back. Good times!
Next day in the mail I received the annual "Oh Lisa please please please buy magazines to support the Girls Scouts, or my school, or my Little League, you are such a sucker and I appreciate it so much, I know you'll do it because you had to when you were young to help support your softball or basketball team, so please please please?" Love one of your our guilt-trip applying cousins or godchildren, Anjelica or Jacob or Jerome or Christina or Alannah, or winner winner chicken dinner today was Veronica Rose. The list of possible beggers could go on and on. ;> The other piece of mail was from American Express. I've been working a lot of hours and days and feeling SO antsy to go on a trip. I need a four or five day getaway badly. So what comes in the mail? American Express Rewards Guide - Grrr! Cruel and "usual" punishment.

Food. We talk alot about it here on the blog and eat a lot of here in the apartment. If you know us or saw us, it shows. So Monday starts with me wanting to cook a hardboiled egg for potato salad. Reached for this little guy and put it in the microwave and 10 minutes later I have a Jackson Pollack imitation. You should have heard the pop one egg blowing up in that little microwave can make. Starting with a regular egg but didn't know a devil egg was my downfall!
