You Better (Not) Shop Around

Pathetic-funny story for the day:

  • I am recovering from surgery.
  • I have left the house exactly thrice in the past 2+ weeks.
  • I have been going really fucking stir-crazy.
In an attempt to curb my ennui (and to make me feel like a part of the outside world), I have been doing a little bit of online shopping.

Scratch that. A great deal of online shopping.

I've been ordering CDs, lip gloss, skirts, more CDs, sweaters (new boobs = new clothes!), yet more CDs, etc. I know it's kind of a dangerous habit, but it's been super fun. I have enjoyed this vicarious mall-trolling a lot.

Today, I got an email informing me that my VISA card has been frozen.

Apparently, the nice people at VISA noted the flurry of charges on my account and temporarily de-activated it due to "suspicious activity".

Of course, I called them right away.

VISA: Would it be all right with you if we went over some of the recent charges on your credit card together?
Sofi: Yes, that's fine.
VISA: $115 at Amazon?
Sofi: Yes.
VISA: $17.50 at Bombshell Bath?
Sofi: Sounds familiar, yeah.
VISA: $170 at Delia's?
Sofi: Yup.
VISA: Yet another $87 at Amazon?
Sofi: ...yes.

This went on for a while.

So that was a bit of an eye-opener. Fortunately, I'm back at work next week. That will leave me with much less time to be a crazed consumer.

Check out this sweater I will soon own! How adorable is this sweater?

Lindsay. Michelle. Lynch.

You have awesome taste...because I ALSO bought THAT. (Although I got it in black. Booooo. White would have been the better bet, in hindsight.)

You would totally look hot in that Sofi. Expecially with perky teats. I'm just saying a sweater is usually flattering when your boobs are firm. You know, like that girl in "Are you there God, it's me Margaret..."

Seriously guy.

There might just be things at Delia's that I'm tempted to buy.

But I'm so not that fag.

Now to, uh, more manly online shopping.

PS: The weekend in TO is no longer queer-Jew-ified. You and your perky tits better have time for me!
