But, we needed a place for Costco shoppers to say hi.
I hope you enjoy the stay. Have a nice day.

Flu Shot

Nov
07

I went to Costco on my lunch hour and got a flu shot.  This is my second year getting flu shot from Costco.

The process was little confusing just like the last year. But people at Costco took care of me as usual. I had to fill out the paper work at one window, get on the other line to pay, and wait for the doctor to call my name.

There was 20 minutes waiting time for the doctor to show, so I had a hotdog while waiting.  Yum~!

Then, when I got a shot? I didn't feel anything.  I mean literally - I didn't feel anything.  I kept looking at my arm at work.  I wasn't sure if I really had a shot or not.

The next day I felt something in my arm.   That confirmed I had a shot. 

If you are old like me, make sure to get your flu shot.

Flu shot is $14.99 at Costco.  But, my insurance paid a couple of bucks.  So, I paid $12.23.  My insurance paid for my hotdog. Haha..

Take care everyone.  Stay healthy.

* They offered free flu shot at my work last month, but I had a cold at that time, so they turned me down.

(boring story) Waiting for Calvin Klein Jeans at Costco

Oct
15

* Warning, extremely boring story... BUT, a lot of my visitors love my boring stories.  So, here we go.

I am waiting for black Calvin Klein jeans at Costco.  I've been waiting for them for a few years now. I want size 30x30.

My waist size goes up and down, so I keep 30, 31, & 32 inch waist jeans.

I've been enjoying my 30" waist for last 3 months.   I think I look the best in 30" waist.  I look like a rock star.  I had 31 inch waist for last 10-15 years.  Did you know most professional body builders have 29" - 31" waist when they compete?

Sometimes I completely lose it and expand to 32".  It takes a few months to get back to 31" - it's not easy to lose 1 inch.

I have about 20 pairs of 32" waist dress pants.  I bought a whole bunch for my old job.  Now I don't work there any more.  Black jeans are fine at my new job.  It is so much efficient to wear jeans at work.  I can wear same pair of jeans for 3 days straight.  And I don't have to iron my pants.

So, below is my jeans breakdown / shopping list.

  • 30 Inches
    • Currently own - 1 black, 2 blue
    • Need to buy - 4 black, 0 blue
  • 31 Inches
    • Currently own - 3 black, 2 blue
    • Need to buy - 2 black (and trash old blacks).
  • 32 Inches
    • Currently own - 1 black, 1 blue
    • Need to buy - 0

 *Since Costco doesn't sell 31" waist jeans, I'll have to get them elsewhere.

Happy Sunday - I Love Costco.

Oct
05

Sunday morning is always calm and glorious.  I enjoy my Sunday morning.

I am having Sunday coffee in my Sunday coffee mug.  Coffee is from Costco, of course. Chocolate cookies and Brie cheese are also from Costco. Smile

I truly enjoy my coffee and snacks from Costco.  They elevate my life-style.  I don't appreciate it often enough that I enjoy such nice products in my everyday life.  I wouldn't know what to do if there was no Costco.  Where else can buy these kind of quality products at low Costco price?  I mean, seriously, I would like to know.

When I used to live in the apartment, I would make my Sunday coffee and walk outside.  And I would say good morning to some of my neighbors.  I miss that story-book moments.  I miss that human interactions.

Of course, being in my own house is amazing.

Happy Sunday everyone. Take care... keep in touch.

I take vitamin D3 so I never have to get out for Sunlight. :)

I always keep 9V batteries at home.  I need 9V batteries once in a while.  When I do, I need them desperately.  I have a bunch of rechargeable batteries (AA, AAA, & 9v), but there are places for regular alkaline batteries.

Lamb shanks are my weekend treat.  They better be good.

I've been doing good refraining myself from buying expensive toys.  To be honest, I think I have everything I want.  I live below my means.  I would like a convertible. but I'm in no hurry on that.

Ps. I didn't like the lamb shank. Perhaps it's an acquired taste. Anyway, there was no taste, and meat as not tender enough for me. I guess some people might like it (?). I should remember not to get them again. Because NOW I remember I bought these lamb shanks in 2009 and I didn't like them. I didn't share my disappointment back then.

Q-Tips will last me about 5 years.

Speaking of Q-Tips.  I buy Q-tips for only one reason, to clean my ear canals.  But, on the package, Q-Tips warn us not to clean ear canal.  I guess there are lot of law suits due to stupid people hurting themselves.

Costco Shopping - September 18, 2014

Beef jerky was for the guys at mail annex (mail guys at my work).  I've been doing a lot of online shoppings lately.  Some of them are adult related products... So, I thought I would bribe them just in case.

Besides that, boring stuff... I've been doing very good saving money.
