I’m groggy as hell, hyped up on Bux coffee, eating a banana (of course), and just all kinds of disheveled.
So, figured it would be best to just spew out my thoughts instead of formulating a coherent message today. Plus, as you will soon see, none of these deserve their own post anyway. I start with the most interesting ones first…
Topic #1. Auctioning off your Virginity
That’s right, there’s a young lady out there reportedly putting her virginity up for sale! And I already checked eBay and it’s not on there ;) Apparantly they turned her down and the auction will be held at some brothel. There’s been plenty of press about it lately, but since i’m a bit slow it’s just now coming around to me. There’s plenty of posts if you want more info or if you want to bid (hah!), all you have to do is google the following quote from her,
“I don’t think auctioning my virginity will solve all my problems, but it will create some financial stability…We live in a capitalist society. Why shouldn’t I be allowed to capitalize on my virginity?”
Topic #2. I was asked to buy doughnuts for $6 on my way to work.
They were a 6-pack of krispy kremes trying to be unloaded for some fund raiser or charity. Probably for a local college’s sports team as the group was decked out in the usual freshmen gear – running shorts, hoodie, flip-flops, and lanyards. I came close to giving in, but in the end i threw out a “not today, thank you” just like my man PT mentioned on my earlier post about getting asked for money. Go me!
Topic #3. I’m flying American Airlines tomorrow, and wonder if i’ll be forced to pay for having bags, eating, drinking, sleeping, and breathing.
If i have to, i have to. At least i got hooked up pretty cheaply through expedia! I’m gonna forecast an extra $25 somewhere in the mix just in case. It just sux that you get hit up for fees no matter where you go these days.
Topic #4. Bananas are selling for 90¢ at Starbucks.
That is all. I just found it interesting.
And there you have it – 4 random bits of goodness for you. I’m off to do some actual work now, and then St. Louis here i come! I won’t have much access to email, so don’t fret if you don’t hear from me for a few days. OOH, but i DO have an update on our wedding pic situation!!! Get ready :)
I wonder if i’ll come across Baily picking up pennies @ the airport? i’m gonna scatter some around for him! haha…. (OOOh, or better yet – hide some and then make him find ’em like a scavenger hunt!)
