could it be?

I got up at 6:30 this morning to drive the 10 miles or so to Wally World to buy a new CD player for work, the new Wolfmother CD and a new alarm clock for home. My Cd player that is relatively new, doesn't always play all of my burned CDs. The annoying and important part of the clock stopped working. You know, the part that makes that gawd-awful noise first thing in the morning....yeah... it doesn't make that noise anymore. Wolfmother just kicks ass.. 'nuff said.

So, instead of playing CoD4 (see my last post) I got up at 6:30 showered, dressed and drove to Wally World. All the while, talking to myself, reasoning that "Dammit I deserve these things!" As I get closer, I begin talking myself OUT of these things. If anyone were to look in the car, they would surely think I had gone mad, arguing and yelling at myself in the mirror. By the time I got there, I had talked myself out of it ALL.

I DON'T need a new CD player, there is always the only rock station Orlando has.. but it sucks. Besides if I beat on the CD player long enough, it WILL eventually play the Cds. Besides, Christmas is coming, money's tight; why not let someone get it for me? I don't need a new alarm clock; all of my animals as well as my internal clock usually wake be up WAY before I have to be up in the morning. Besides, once someone buys me the new player for Christmas hint hint the player I have here has an alarm that actually works, so I can just replace it. I don't need the new Wolfmother CD, again, Christmas is coming and everyone in my family loves that band so surely someone will get it.

So there I am 7:06 at the turn lane for Wally World. I turn in, then pull into the Chick-Fil-A parking lot instead; it's right next to Wally World. I place my order, get my total: $6.66. I pull around to the window (HA! I typed 'winder' first... damn Southern drawl) and told the girl there was a problem with my total. She thought she did something wrong a reassured me it was correct. I said, "Oh I don't doubt that, but its 666. So I had her put on another coffee just to change the total. On my drive back I noticed the full or almost full moon in the sky.. good thing I had her change that total.


So essentially, I got up at 6:30am JUST to go to Chick-Fil-A get a 666 number and see that it was full moon.. Dammit I should have stayed in bed.

I do the same thing! I talk myself out of everything I want, and then when I finally give in and start buying things for myself, I go crazy.

At least you posted something! You spent almost 7 bucks on food, money for gas, but would not shell out for what you really wanted! Forget the alarm clock, Use the alarm on your cell phone. But go back out and get your damned CD player!

That is a great recap of your morning! I'm proud of your self control. I sometimes talk myself out of things and then they plague me for weeks whispering "go back and buy me".

dizzblnd said...

otin.. You knew I would eventually ;) I can suffer until Christmas.. really I can.. money is just WAY to tight for me to be ME shopping ya know?

Julia I was proud of myself too.. not quite sure how I did it.. it wasn't easy.. I am sure I will succomb to the whisperings though.. my self control is like a 2 year old throwing a temeper tantrum

I think you deserve a new CD player. Nobody should have to bang on something to get it to work right.

Under the Influence said...

You got up at 6:30AM to go to Wally World? Aren't they open 24 hours a day?

dizzblnd said...

Chris.. thanks, you are sweet to say so.. but I can wait.. only a month and a half right?

Jo.. Well I wanted to get there before I went to work this morning so I would have new tunes and something that worked to play them on... sigh

I bang on my oven to get it to work, it's takes 7 minutes of 3 second increments to roll up my cards window...and I still got the Wolf Mother CD. It's so rocking good I don't even have words... Music brings so much joy and your kids would enjoy it too so that's joy x's 3! I say treat yourself and stop going to that Chic-fila. When is seeing the full moon EVER a bad thing? LOL. Hey I have some best buy bucks..not enough for a new CD player..but enough for a Cd..I'll share! Hugs! Shelly

Get back in your car and go back to Wally World. Buy the stuff you need and only that. Take someone with you to keep you in line!

Ask for diamonds for Christmas.

I never get stuff for myself either. My kid is growing too quickly and all extra cash seems to flow into new clothes for her.

I see you pulled yourself away from WOW long enough to go to Wallyword/Chik-Filet. Did the morning sun hurt your eyes. I feel like I am coming out of a buzz when I first emerge from an induced computer game coma.

Me-Me King said...

LOL! I hope you sent everyone on your Christmas list this post. I can see it now, you'll receive 4 new CD players which will only take you back to Wally World for an exchange and another cup of coffee from Chik-Fil-A.

Slyde said...

have i mentioned how extra cool i think you are for playing CoD4?

Jen said...

I would have so ordered more to change the total from 666. I talk myself out of stuff all the time and then buy something totally useless (but way cool)to reward myself for scrimping on the necessities. We wear holy underwear in this house.
