When I started seeing He Who Must Not Be Named, figuring that I’d be doing a hell of a lot of traveling (HWMNBN does not live in NY), I started “the Miami fund”. The Miami Fund consisted of a bank account opened for the sole purpose of saving money for plane tickets. Back in October, HWMNBN and I ended things for the first time. In order to make myself feel better, I went shopping. First, I spent all the money in the Miami Fund, figuring that I wouldn’t need to make any unexpected trips. Then, once I spent that money, I spent my spending money figuring that it was called “spending money” for a reason. After that, I spent my food money under the logic that it’s always okay to loose a few pounds. Once I was done with that, I spent the money to pay my bills, and then, like a good American, I started charging stuff.
Needless to say, I was broke until like December; however, I was very stylish the whole time :)
Anyway, this time around there was no Miami Fund to speak of so my heartbreak has had to be kept on a budget. Basically, I decided that I was going to party my money away and that once I was finished spending my DISPOSABLE income, I would be done with it. That was all fine and dandy until yesterday, on my way home from work, I found myself surrounded by signs of the SALE-VENTI variety.
…how I love those words…especially when they are in the general area of anything labeled Jimmy, Marc, Rebecca, or Domenico & Stefano and naturally, near very cute under things!
Yesterday was a test of character. I walked into the stores, held pretty things in my hand, went on a line to buy them and then walked away before doing so. I stood on the sidewalk questioning my resolve, second guessing my beliefs, yet ultimately walking home empty handed because I WILL NOT LET HWMNBN DRIVE ME TO BAKRUPTCY! Not again. Until Monday July 4 at 11:59pm I will continue my bad girl therapy and that’s the end of that!
So what if I look cuter broke and stylish than I do with a drink on one hand and a smoke in the other?
Anyway…onto other things, they legalized gay marriages in Canada. I’m very happy about this. It’s good to know that someone in this side of the world is exercising open mindedness. At least now I know that if I find my soulmate embodied in a woman, I won’t have to make the trip to Holland (though that’s always fun!) so I can give my little “ ‘til death do us part” speech.
I missed Bush’s little speech from last night, but I read the transcript this morning. So sad! Sometimes I really do wonder if he honestly believe what he is saying and what’s more, if it makes sense in his head. I think that if he wasn’t the President and he was say my neighbor, I might like the guy. Naiveté can actually be kind of charming. But when this guy is the President, and he is trying to feed me BS, well, things change and right now, I wish nothing more but for him to get struck by lightning :)
