Bamboozled!

I knew if I kept going to trivia long enough, they would eventually ask a question about The Office. AND TONIGHT...well, tonight was that night! It was a two-parter too, oh glorious fate! They were pretty easy though, I mean, those were designed for casual fans, and I am like a super fanatic, so I was actually hoping for something a little harder so we could catch up on some points, but whatevs. Bloggers can't be choosers. It was awesome because as soon as the dude said the words The Office, everyone just like looked right in my direction...PRESSURE! It was good to be known for something aside from being "you know, that fat white girl" though. Now, I am "you know, that fat white girl that's all gay for The Office." Ahhh, status.

Also, I finally bit the cheapskate bullet and bought a new camera, hooray! TJ sent me her old one, but I think the postal service broke it en route because it wouldn't work even with brand new batteries! NEW BATTERIES, people. I'm notorious for mixing and matching whatever oldass batteries I can find around the house. One from the remote, one from the cat's laser pointer, one from the vibrator, one from Guitar Hero...we all share weak batteries in this house. But these were brand spankin' new, so I knew something was wrong. I thank you, Teej, for sending it. You are a true blue pal. Sorry USPS.com sucks and broke it. :(

But hey, I got a shiny new one. It's a Canon something something. It's not the best one in the world, but I'm pretty broke, so I deal. I saw it when I went to Costco last night and it said it was the last one, a display unit, so it was on sale. And I kept getting this nagging feeling to just buy it, but I dunno, I have a hard time spending a big chunk of money on myself. Modern day Mother Teresa, remember? Anyway, I spent all day today trying to get someone in electronics to pick up the phone because somewhere around 7:40 am, I was like "I'M GONNA GET IT!" But I was worried, with it being the LAST display model and all, that it could be gone.

So I finally get a dude to pick up and he makes me talk to the manager and the manager very begrudgingly decides to put it on hold for me so I am all psyched all day like HELL YEAH I'M GETTING A DEAL! Then I get there and I go to "the cage" (rawr) and give the dude the item number and he goes in there to get it for me. Then I was like "is that the right one? The tag said it was a display model." So he checks and he's like "yeah, matches the model number. We got like 20 back there, so you can have the box." Those fuckers! Can't believe I fell for the oldest sales trick in the book. The ol' THIS IS THE LAST ONE trick. I feel hoodwinked, but still happy to have this shiny box of camera fillings so I just go with the happiness.

I hope I didn't get ripped off, but I'm letting it go! I got a camera, I paid the rent, we're good. Let.it.go.

So yeah, the battery's charging. Yay, camera!

Alright, it's late. I'm gonna go wash the second-hand smoke from my hair and get some snoozers. Have a good Wednesday!

Oh, I've fallen for that so many times. Not that I don't want the item, but I could have often put off buying it until I have more money. But when it's the last one! Yeah...
