How to kill time in a cubicle part deux

28 Apr

Another boring day with nothing to do. Thank God, it will be all over tomorrow at 4pm because there is nothing more I can do with my day.

A run down from today:

*Organized my coupons (there will be an upcoming Frugal Friday on my couponing ways!)

*Read magazines

*Touched up my nails

*Proclaimed I’m never going to indulge in a bloody margarita again after last nights festivities

I got home, passed out around 845om, woke up at 1130pm and went back to bed around 4am. Suffice to say, I felt like crap today.

*Indulged in a Skinny Cinnamon Dolce Latte


I say indulge because rarely will I order a $4 drink if I don’t have a free drink coupon.

*Practically cried when I saw my Chick Fil A coupon had expired because grease was the one thing I needed in my system

But got a free bagel with cream cheese instead

*Found some websites to waste time

This one was my favorite: Dads are The Original Hipsters

*Went to the library to return a few cds

*Found out that Jon Secada is still alive and well and putting out cd’s

*Got some new cd’s

*Wondered why I went buckwild with a BOGO sale on M&M’s and Starburst at CVS

*Marveled at how great my hair looked with it’s natural curls coming out to play  without doing anything to it

*Read about  Bru’s Wiffle in Santa Monica and decided I will be there if I am in Southern Cali again.

The serve Belgian waffles but not just for breakfast dishes—they have it as the base for other dishes such as Chicken Curry Salad Waffle and a Pizza Waffle!

*Watched Shiba Inu’s live for a ridiculous amount of time. They were absolutely adorable but then I started to get concerned because do they ever go off line? When do they get to go outside and do their business? What happens when they grow up, will there be replacements like with Menudo?

*Found out Fage offers coupons online

But Athenos doesn’t since it’s a Kraft product and per their website

“During special promotions we may offer coupons in order for people to try something new at little or no cost. The brand must pay for these coupons and the number of coupons available is limited by brand marketing and promotion budgets.

We do not offer Kraft coupons upon request, but look for them in newspapers, magazines, and on product packages”

Thumbs down, Athenos, thumbs down.

*Went to Target to shop

Found a cute jacket on the clearance rack along with a pair of fun sandals since it looks like I won’t be wearing my flip flops as much as I have been.

*Had a killer lunch of leftovers

*Googled pictures of Colorado and Colorado Springs. My best friend just moved there and I think I am going to visit this summer!



Please tell me something excited about your day!

    I stared at a gift box of chocolate we are auctioning off tomorrow all day. Took all my strength not to eat it out of stress.

    My friend just “liked” Dads are the Original Hipsters on fb and I checked it out- hilarious!

    Coconut M&M’s are da bomb! :p

    Sigh, I wish my last days at work were as uneventful in terms of work! I’ve always worked till the last second even though I handed accounts over!

    Well, today I discovered a way to figure out when my hubby gives me a compliment for the food I cook since he feels he’s a much better cook having gone to hotel management school (so he doesn’t rave about your food even if it’s delicious). If he really thinks it’s yummy, he’ll ask me what I put in it, so after I tell him, I’ll say ‘Thank you’ for fun since that’s the closest I’m going to get out of him! 😛 So, this way I don’t get mad anymore that he doesn’t appreciate my cooking. Ok, this is a crazy long comment, so I shall stop!

    I need to find a good way to organize my coupons! 🙂

    And I totally found the Dads are Original Hipsters site earlier this week. HILARIOUS 🙂

    That is one hell of a productive day! I’m the coupon queen myself, but the Fage thing ticks me off. You have to install some special coupon printing thing, which I can’t do at work–the only place I can print anything. Grrr.

    At any rate, any day with Target and treats works for me.

    Girl, GET OUT OF MY HEAD. Seriously, yesterday when I titled my post “Just Another Day” I was singing Jon Secada in my head and started thinking about whether he was still alive or not. LOL.

      Now convinced we share the same brain, especially after all your lists you put out.

    You’ve definitely inspired me as far as couponing goes. I’m actually clipping them (for once) and going to use them at the triple coupon event today!

    1. Love the orange nails!

    2. That cocktail looks good – even if it did leave you not wanting more.

    3. Good thinking on stocking up on BOGO candy. Very good idea in my opinion. 😉

    Looks like I need to check out the Waffle place in Santa Monica. It’s about an hour away from me and looks totally worth it!
