Five things I would never think or do, if not for the Internets
- It would never occur to me to wonder, when opening the oven door, if the rush of heat blasting at me could actually melt my glasses.
- I would never see a cryptic personalized license plate and think, "BYMKRS? What the hell does that mean? I wonder if Malia would know." (In case you're curious, she didn't.)
- I would never even consider spending $10 on a single tube of deodorant.* (Tube? I would not even use the word "tube" alongside "deodorant"!) Instead, I am not only considering it, but am annoyed that I was at one of the only three stores in the Twin Cities that carries it and I forgot to pick some up.
- I would never search four different grocery stores for a raved-about Lean Cuisine I'd not yet tried.**
- I would not, when trying to resist the urge to snack, touch my hand to my flabby midsection and chant, "Nothing ever tastes as good as being skinny feels."***
So what about the rest of you? Surely I'm not alone with things like this. Tell me, what has a blog made you do?
* Gah! Temporarily unavailable? Guinness Girl and Maliavale, you must be spreading the word like mad!
** I finally found that damn panini, and GG's right: it is tasty. Mainly what amused me, though, were the unusually complicated (for a frozen meal) cooking instructions, and the enthusiastic use within those instructions of the all-capitalized term "REVOLUTIONARY GRILLING TRAY!" (to describe a silver-lined circular piece of cardboard... revolutionary indeed).
*** Nabbs, I'm sure this was you, but I can't find the post in your archives. You had no idea you'd given me a personal mantra, did you?
