Costco Shopping – October 10, 2009

Check this out.  Chocolates of the World are back.  I bought 5 jugs last year.  I still have one fresh jug left.  So, this time I bought 3 jugs.

I also bought 2 cans of Christmas Cookies (Belgian Cookies).  I wanted to buy 1 more can, but I don’t make enough money.

Other than that, everything else I bought was good (healthy) item.

Costco was packed with Christmas stuff.  We are in full swing now.

I went to Costco on my lunch time.  I didn’t have time for a hot dog.  Also, I try not to eat meat on weekdays.  I try to keep in shape.

As I was getting ready to leave Costco, I saw an old lady at the parking lot, trying to load her trunk with heavy items.  So, I stopped & got out from my car.  I said "Let me help you.  Pretty young thing like you…."  "I am 84", she said with laughter.  I loaded her trunk as we made small talk.  Soon after, I took her empty cart and told her to drive careful.

Little human interactions like this make me happy.

Chocolates of the world, dude~!

My 70 yrs old neighbor kissed me on my lips. She came straight at it. Now I can smell her on my upper lip.

Fresh Basil Plant Mystery

I bought a small pot of  basil 10 days ago at local Smart & Final.  I enjoy fresh basil on my pasta and tomatoes.  I eat tomatoes at work as snack.  I sprinkle some fresh, chopped basil on my tomato.  They taste so fresh and good.

But, my plant is dying rather quickly.  I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.

I give 1/2 inch of water.  And I leave the pot where I get partial Sun light.

I thought I would enjoy fresh basil from this pot for ever (hehe).  I am going to buy another pot and give it another try.  I would like to figure out how keep them alive for a long time.  Maybe I don’t live in the right climate?  I don’t know.  I must find out.  It’s mind boggling.

I hope I don’t get obsessed about growing spices. Some of you know what I’m talking about.

Copy Your Keys at Costco with Minute Key

This is why Costco shopping is exciting.  You don’t know what you will see next.

Minute Key is here – you can copy your home/office keys on the spot. 

  • You cannot copy car keys or any other funky looking keys (obviously)
  • You only get to copy 1 key per order.  If you order 3 copies, that means you will get 3 copies of 1 key.  You don’t get the chance to switch to the next key.
  • You must pay more if you want the key with design (pictures)
  • Cheapest copy is 1 key for $1.49
  • I bought the value pack – 3 keys for $3.00
  • My copy works fine!  I am happy with the result

Deep Thoughts

Lying to boyfriend “I am pregnant” has to be illegal. That happened to me three times in the past. I tell ya, it can really mess up a person. Horrible, horrible thing to do…

Happy Labor Day 2011

Happy Labor Day everyone.

I don’t work physical labor.  But, I can use a long weekend.  I’ve been putting so much over-time that I’ve been totally wiped out for several weeks now.  I can really use some sleep.

I was home alone for the weekend.  On Saturday and Sunday, I ate babyback rib and ribeye steak.  I plan to eat good on Labor Day.  I can’t eat meat three days straight.

I listened to a lot of Christmas music this weekend.  I burned Christmas candles and watched Polar Express.   Polar Express is a relatively new movie, but it quickly became my favorite Christmas movie. 

It’s 2am Labor Day (Monday) morning.  Summer is unofficially over.   I have a door opened right now.  There is a hint of winter in the air.  It’s crisp and cold.

I’m going to bed now.

It’s going to feel weird not going to work on Monday.

Costco will be closed for Labor Day.  I wonder if Bed Bath and Beyond will be opened.  I was home alone for 2 days straight.  I want to drive around a little.

Good night~


PS. I thought about opening a account.  Mm… maybe later…
