Costco Shopping – May 22, 2009

* Today’s Costco shopping: 19th time this year, 2nd time this month

I didn’t buy anything special.  Same thing… boring.

One interesting item was a sack of potatoes.  I am going to use them for juicing.  I put 3-4 along with apples & carrots.  I think they are pretty good & cheap.

One thing I like about juicing is that I don’t have to worry about finding worms in the apple.  Haha~~

potatoes (among other things)

I am doing good with my fitness goal.

I find myself eating less & better.

Oh, about the pineapple:  Costco’s pineapples are amazing. I love them.  After eating them I save the skin for juice next morning.  I am thrifty.

Back in the day…

Here’s a missing piece of puzzle of my life

I still have a crate full of old school Hip Hop (rap) records.  Most of them are about 20 years old.  Back then, Hip Hop was underground, so I had to borrow my father’s car and drive to Los Angeles to look for records.

Old School Hip Hop Records

I used to tune my Radio to AM 1580 at night.  If I get lucky, I would get a faint reception.  Oh, how I enjoyed listening to Greg Mack, the Mack Attack.

Then, late 80’s, Rap turned mainstream.  I even saw the gang from Saved By the Bell rapping.  That’s when I completely stopped listening to rap music.

They used to have some good Hip Hop music back then. 

I had 2 turn tables and a cheap Realistic mixer from RadioShack.  I had fun making my own mix tape.  I made very little money doing DJs for parties as well.  I didn’t DJ too much, because I was what they called a "Sucker DJ" ha ha..

I found this mix from YouTube – below is the kind of music I used to listen to.  Good time…

Online Shopping

* 45th packages of the year

I got a set of sport earphones for running (I started to workout last week, so..).  You may wonder why I have disinfecting wipes out there.  It’s because I bought open-boxed earphones.  So, I gave them a good wipe. 

I ran today. These earphone held up pretty well.  I like them.




Ironing Shirts

This is me ironing Cool

I shot this video to supplement my past product review on Polder Ironing board.  I shot this video to demonstrate that we need flat end of the board.   Most ironing boards now have stupid cup holders to block access to the flat end. 

When will they learn?

(Excuse my poor video quality.  That’s all I can do)

** PS. Someone told me I iron in strange way. But, I never saw anyone else ironing before in my life.  I mean, I never paid attention.  So I came up with my own method.  I think my way is the best way.  Look, I ironed 2 shirts in 5 minutes.  If there is a faster way I would really like to know.

Ecco Shoes, Hamburger Phone…

* 42, 43rd packages of the year

I bought a pair of ecco.  It was the most expensive pair of shoes I ever bought in my life ($150.00).  Also, they were the cheapest pair of ecco shoes I could find. 

CostcogirlinVA introduced me to ecco.  I didn’t know about ecco before she mentioned the name.  I think they were exactly what I needed.  So, I got a pair.

They are good shoes.  They fit well.

Thank you costcogirlinVA.

These are my "everyday" shoes.  Ready to get trashed.

Hamburger Phone

I finally watched Juno.  This is the hamburger phone from the movie.  It was less than $12.00 from ebay

Picture Diary

I went to lunch with my regular lunch buddy.  We went to this Pizza joint?  They had "Unlimited Topping" pizza.

So I ordered double anchovies and mushrooms.

It was a good looking restaurant.

At work, somebody’s keep pumping up the air conditioner after lunch.  I mean, I was so freakin’ cold.  Today, I had to wear a fuzzy jacket and gloves when it’s almost 80 degrees outside.

This is why I have to wear leg warmers at work. 

This is why some people hate America…


My Typical Lunch Hour – Maury Show

I live in the same city block as my work.  From my apartment, I can run to my work in 90 seconds. But I drive every single day.  I drive because it’s the American way. Smile

Because I live so close to my work, I have a lot of options on what I can do on my lunch time. 

During my lunch time, I would…

  • eat out with my co-worker.
  • take 90 minute lunch and do laundry.
  • I don’t eat but I would sleep for 1 hour.
  • go to Costco

Then there is Maury

I hate to admit, but I love Maury Show.  I especially enjoy DNA test episodes. Sometimes I check TV schedule for Maury episodes.

As soon as I get home, I change into loungewear.  And I go about my lunch routine as I watch Maury Show.

You never know what’s going to happen on DNA results.  I love it.  It’s fun because it’s not me sitting there (you know what I mean).

It’s not just the guests who are fun to watch.  I love how the audience react when they hear unexpected results.  I would LOVE to be there.

"You ARE the father~!" ha ha…  Good time
