Ecco Shoes, Hamburger Phone…

* 42, 43rd packages of the year

I bought a pair of ecco shoes. 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 and extremely comfortable. I can wear them like a pair of sneakers.

Thank you, costcogirlinVA.

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 an “Unlimited Topping” pizza.

So I ordered double anchovies and mushrooms.

At work, somebody kept pumping up the air conditioner after lunch. I mean, I was so cold. Today, I had to wear a fuzzy jacket and gloves when it’s almost 80 degrees outside. This is why some people hate Americans.


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 to work every day because it’s the American way. 

During my lunchtime, I would…

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

Then there is Maury

I hate to admit it, but I love Maury Show. I especially enjoy DNA test episodes. Sometimes I check the 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.

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

“You ARE the father~!”

*Update: Several years later, I flew 3000 miles to Stamford, Connecticut, and attended the Maury show.

Dos Equis Man

Without a doubt, the most annoying mofo on TV.
I had to get this off my chest.

Jonathan Goldsmith did a lot of character acting in the past. Anyway, this is the most annoying commercial there is.

When did this happen? McDonald’s Nutritional Fact

I went to McDonald’s for lunch today.

I had Filet O Fish & 6 pieces of Chicken McNuggets (& no soda)

My Coworker had a 1/4 Pound Burger Value Pack.

I looked at the bottom sides of the boxes and saw nutritional facts. This was the first time seeing nutritional facts on any fast food containers.

My lunch (without soda) was $6.42. When did the price go up like this?

The Week I Ate The Most Amount Of Fat

I believe I ate the most amount of fat (greasy food) last week.

  • I ate 8 pieces of Popeye’s chicken.
  • I had 4 pieces of KFC chicken.
  • I went to Carl’s Jr for a burger and fries.
  • I had two big slices of anchovy pizza & salad.
  • I also had a double chili cheeseburger with fries.

I need to fight the temptation. I keep thinking “just this once” or “I will work out tonight”

This is bad, bad…  I am definitely fatter than last year.  

I currently wear 32-inch waist pants – But I know I’m bigger than 32.

But I tell you what. I enjoyed every single bite of these bad foods.

Another Flat Tire In 3 Months~! :(

Gag me with a spoon. I have a flat tire again.

I bought 4 tires from Costco about 4 months ago. The next month I got a flat tire.

I have a flat tire. Again~!! This time it’s the rear right side.

There was an AAA towing truck waiting for me. The towing truck driver saw my flat tire, and he waited for the driver to show. He asked me if I wanted his service. I told him “no”. Then he moved on.

I quickly replaced the tire with a spare. Replacing a tire is easy if you have the right tools.

** Make sure you have the right tools to replace tires on your own. Do not assume your cellular phone will save the day. If you have never replaced a tire before, try to see if you can do it on your own. If you are a small person, it will be almost impossible to unfasten the lug nuts with a small wrench. You may have to buy a wrench like mine (below). You may need a better jack as well.

The tire laying flat on the ground is the spare.
My spare tire is a full-size regular tire.
