My New HEB
It’s pretty sad but, these days, the most I get excited about is my new HEB and the 20% off all special-order flooring products sale at Home Depot. But, yes, it’s true. Last night I went grocery shopping and just HAD to stop off at the new HEB. So there I was in the fruit and nuts wondering where the beer was, when I ran into not one, not two, but three people I knew. What is everybody doing shopping at 9:30 at night? Hmm. I don’t know. But, I do know they all seem to love the new HEB as much as I do. Must be the fruit and nuts.
My craving for a G5 has me drooling. I never thought of myself as a “geek” but lately, I’m finding myself dreaming about the G5. It’s true. A UNIX box with a mac front-end and a cool flat-panel display. Not to mention that it’s got a dual-pro 1.2 GHz horsepower behind it. Wow. I want one. I want one now. Right now. I’ve resolved to buy my scanner this weekend, and then try to figure out how to order the G5. I’m forcing myself to clean out my office and unpack before I actually order it. Just because I want to have room for it and have my office all ready for when it comes.
Which brings me back to the Home Depot sale. So, I’m cleaning out my front bedroom, thinking it would make a GREAT office. And I’m thinking it would be really nice if it were painted blue. Yeah, blue. A nice, medium/dark royal blue. So I’m thinking, “ok, how can I paint? That would put the G5 off at least another week or more?” Then, I watching TV and there goes the ad. Home Depot is having a sale on special-order flooring, including all hardwoods. Special order. That’s like all the rare Brazillian KOA crap that they never put on display. Hmmm. Wonder if that rare Jarah wood would match my lovely shade of blue? Maybe I’ll stop at Home Depot on the way home from work and checkout the lumber. Come to think of it, they are opening a new Home Depot right next door to the, you guessed it, new HEB. Be still my heart and watch my wallet, Brazillian KOA here I come.
Until next time, this is, ah screw it, I’m off to shop….
