No, I Do Not Work At Applebee’s.

RanDUMB, The Fiance

I wore a denim shirt today. Not a crappy denim shirt, a nice Ralph Lauren tailored denim shirt with a jaunty scarf. I received snotty comments from 2 people. One snotty commenter was the Fiance. He hates when I wear denim shirts. Dork tries to order food from me. He will ask me how long I’ve been working at Applebee’s, what time do I get off work, are the riblets fresh, etc. He will yell across the living room “I’m ready for my check!”. Argh.

So I did what any other pms’ing chick would do. I grabbed my 20% off Lord & Taylor coupon and did some damage.

Cashmere Ralph Lauren sweater – Regularly $218. Mine for $22.

Kate Hill blazer – Regularly $198. Mine for $26.

Kate Hill long sleeve t-shirt – Regularly $36(?). Mine for $12.

Michael Kors shirt – Regularly $99.50. Mine for $32(?)

I was doing well on my bargain shopping till I swung by the Kate Spade jewelry section to swoon over those darn earrings again. I have been drooling over them for a few months. The cashier said I could use the 20% off coupon on them and…I got em. Originally I wanted the blue/lime ones but I settled on the pink/peach ones. Minus the 20% coupon = still too much…but I desperately wanted them and there is no way in hell they scream “Applebee’s”. For the price they were charging I expected a Kate Spade box to store them in. Nope, just the run of the mill L&T box. :::shakes fist in the air:::

*my memory sucks and I’m too lazy to get up and check the specific price, close enough. Did I mention the pms?

    Jean,
    I like the new digs. Can I ask that your top post be full and the later posts be click to read more? I’m lazy and I don’t want to have to move my finger.

    If not, then I’ll live.

    LOL

    Umm, probably not but I’ll look into it. Still getting to know the template, we’re not intimate yet.

    Verrry funny! Love your blog. I ditto the request made by April to have your latest post in full and the others to be click to read, if possible. I read you during morning coffee, in a recliner….you get the picture.

    “Are the ribblets fresh?”
    May I recommend that you start selling a bumper sticker in your merch section that asks this compelling question?
    Come to think of it, it would also look f’n brilliant written in icing. but that’s more of a hint for him.
    I have said it before and I’ll say it again, marry the dude. Like a year ago.

    My Feedburner is down again. Sorry!

    I agree about the top post being full rather than shortened. I don’t know if the template will allow that, but will definitely look into it.

    Thanks!
