Costco Shopping – September 21, 2013

Chocolate cake – no explanation needed here.

Ellen Tracy Hospitality Bath Towels (6 pack):

I bought 12 hotel/motel quality bath towels.  These towels are thinner than normal luxury bath towels.  But, they are pretty soft and decent.  Just like the name says, they are hospitality towels.  They are perfect for one time use for guests.  For example, if I have few guests staying at my house for a few days and take showers and such,  I can offer them fresh towel every time.

*I washed them towels before use.  They produced a huge lint ball size of a medium size watermellon (without sqeezing).  I shall watch and see if that’s was the first time deal.  Maybe I will lose softness every time I wash, and they will quickly reduced into car wash rags.  We’ll see…

Scented Candles – 2 years later

If you are a long time visitor to my blog, you will remember the time when I first started to get into scented candles.

Then I announced that I would stop talking about scented candles, because I started talk more about scented candles than Costco.  I was absolutely obsessed about scented candles at that time.

If you follow my tweeter, you know I still like to burn scented candles.

With that, below is a picture I just took this morning.

I understand that burning candles produce cancer causing chemicals.  I am now in the process of replacing all paraffin candles with soy wax candles.  Even with soy wax, I shall refrain myself from burning candles too much.

I love scented candles.  I am burning rose right now.

OMG, Jay Leno doesn’t look good.

I haven’t watched The Tonight Show for a few years (Since Conan O’brien started Team CoCo).

I happened to catch Jay Leno on Tonight Sow last night?  Oh My God, he didn’t look good.  I mean, I worry about his well being.  He didn’t look healthy.

I know he’s in his 60’s.  But he looked bad despite professional makeup he must have had.

I worry about that guy.  I like Jay Leno.

(Am I the only person seeing that?)

Costco Shopping – September 4, 2013

I went to Costco after work on Wednesday for some quick pickup.

Of course, I always keep my eye out for something super fantastic.

And I found this nice comforter by Pacific Coast Feather Company (650 fill power).

$99.89 is a good price.  This purchase may pay for your Costco membership.

I’ve been using 700 fill power comforter by Laura Ashely for 5 years.  Last few months, I’ve been looking for another comforter with less fill power.  After research, I decided that Pacific Coast was the best bet.  Then I found the exact comforter I was going to buy.  I would have paid much more.

This comforter is better and lighter.  My older comforter was too warm.  I am very satisfied.

* NOTICE: It’s priced at $99.89.  That $.89 means It’s a special deal.  They may disappear quick. Good luck.

 

 

Costco employee who didn’t care

I picked up a box of yogurt today at Costco.  I got to the check out line and put the yogurts on the belt.  A female Costco employee picked up my box of yogurt and found the bar code on the bottom of the box.

Then she turned my yogurt box upside down and put it on my shopping cart so her partner would scan it.  I couldn’t believe what I was seeing.   I was pretty pissed.

"Yogurt should not be upside down.  Thank you.  Sorry.."  I said.

She turned my yogurts right side up as we exchanged fake smiles.

I thought it was pretty messed up.  She’s not stupid.  She knew what she was doing.  Basically she didn’t care.  This was the first time in many years walking out from Costco feeling mis-treated.  It was a little thing she did that ruined my perfect image about Costco.

I still have a sour taste about today’s experience. 

I don’t think she will work at Costco for too long, not with that kind of rotten attitude.

You don’t flip a man’s yogurt cup.  You just don’t.   If you do, we will whine about it.

Chobani Pulls Yogurt Cups, Says No Recall

FYI: Costco sells Chobani yougurts

###

Greek-style yogurt maker Chobani has reportedly asked various grocery retailers in the U.S. to pull its yogurt cups from shelves over “isolated quality concerns” stemming from customer reports of foul-smelling, sour yogurt, which some customers have alleged sickened them.

Tail of Irony: Slaps

I watched this race about a months ago.  Max Papis slapped Billy Johnson.  I didn’t like what I saw at that time.  I thought that was messed up.

 

Then this weekend, unthinkable happened.  Max Papis got slapped by a girlfriend of another driver (not Billy Johnson’s).  He’s got hit very hard that it dislocated his jaw.  Nascar world is buzzing around this incident right now.  I am very interested in seeing what’s going to happen.  There are a lot of people angry at this girl. (furious)

Anyway, I see the irony in this whole thing.  Maybe Max Papis started the chain of slaps that getting slapped was inevitable.
