I hope you enjoy the stay. Have a nice day.

Sir Bernard Ashley dies on Valentine's Day

0 comments.

Feb

Bernard Ashley was a founder of Laura Ashley 

I guess a lot of people know the name in the US.  But, I would have never known about Laura Ashley if it wasn't for Costco. 

I bought a goose down comforter from Costco last year as a part of "Shopping for a Bed" project.  My new comforter was from Laura Ashley.

I didn't know my comforter was British.  I just knew my comforter was from Costco.

Anyway, he died on Valentine's day. 
Somehow it sounds right.

Sir Bernard Ashley (August 11, 1926 - February 14, 2009) was a Welsh businessman and engineer. He was the widower of Laura Ashley, and was her business partner from the founding of their fashion-textiles-centred business.

Who drinks soda with salad?

My coworker and I went to Souplantation for lunch.  I even gave him my coupon so he would save $.80.

What shocked me was that he ordered a soda ($2.29 extra).  Who drinks soda with salad?  I guess a lot of people do.  He later explained that he must have soda with salad.  Hm~!  Undecided

If I didn't give him my coupon, he might have spent $3.25 more than me on this lunch.  $3.25 is a lot of money to save on a work day's lunch.  A lot of people spend $3.00 for entire lunch.

Tweety Key-Chain

* 13th package this year.

There is an old lady in my neighborhood. She's a lot older than my mother.  She used to carry a big fuzzy Tweety Bird key chain.

I say "Hi" whenever I see her.  
Her tweety bird was getting dirty.

Then, one day, she stopped carrying her Tweety Bird.  She lost the bird, she said.

So I went online and ordered a fuzzy Tweety Key-chain.  Fuzzy Tweety is in the mail.  This key-chain is something extra I am going to give her.

I hope I will give them to her on Valentine's day, but I don't think the Fuzzy one will make it on time.  Mm.. It's OK.

Costco Shopping - Speed Shopping

* Today's Costco shopping: 8th time this year, 2nd time this month

I was so busy and tired, that was not going to make it to Costco after work.  So I decided to go to Costco on my lunch hour.

I started my stop watch and headed out to Oxnard Costco.  It took me exactly 10 minutes to get to Costco.  Then I was pushing my cart inside Costco like Tony Stewart at Watkins Glen (a little NASCAR humor there)

I spent $140.00 in a record breaking time.

I did good with time.  I even ate a hotdog for lunch.

Check out my Calculator watch.  I like that watch so much that I own a second watch as a backup (just in case I lose this one...)

Brita filter is for work.  Now I can drink cold, tasty water at work.

Up 27 Hours, Police Chase

Today... 

I went to work.
I went to Costco.
I did 3 loads of laundry.
I ironed 11 pants & 12 shirts (took 3 hours)
I fixed dinner, ate, & did the dishes.
I did more work.
etc, etc...

I have been up since 10:30pm last night.
So, I've been up and working 26+ hours straight.

It's 12:30am, but I cannot go to sleep.
There is a police chase going on (online).. I must watch the chase..
They were showing the chase on TV at first.
But, after 11:30pm all TV stations had to move on.  But I still have access to two internet channels where I can watch the chase.

Chase is over, but now it's a stand up.
The suspect is in a Bentley, a $150,000.00 car.

I just cannot stop watching car chases

Oh my God~!!  the guy killed himself.
They are gonna get the body out.
Oh, boy... there he goes... he's dead.
Now it's 1:14am but there are people everywhere on the street.
This has to be a top news tomorrow.  Wow..

This is why I watch car chases.  It's a real human drama.   You never know what's going to happen.

Costco shopping story coming up tomorrow... I am very tired.

I cannot believe I've been up 27 hours straight.  So stupid...

Good night.

BBQ Day this Weekend

I am getting ready for a BBQ day tomorrow (Saturday).  I will be eating alone, but it's OK.  I manage to keep myself busy and entertained.

I need to work on my web projects. 

I plan to take a nap, practice guitar, watch The Lakers, drink coffee, keep working...  I should visit my parents too... hm.  I am so busy.

Anyway, I have chicken and steak ready for tomorrow.  Chicken is from July 2008 shopping, steak is from the Glorious Thanksgiving Steak Sale.  

I need to pick out some movies for this weekend.  Out of my movie collection there are about 150 movies that I haven't watched.

Del Taco Lunch With Coupon

Lunch at Del Taco today

I used a "Buy one, get one Free" coupon and got two Macho Tacos for $1.71.  I saved over $3.00 by using a coupon and skipping on a drink.

I popped a can of diet Pepsi when I got back to work.

My co-worker spent over $5 on his lunch.  It's not easy to convert him into a coupon clipper.  It's not easy to persuade him when he doesn't feel the need to save.  To me, clipping coupons is a fun game.

How I Like My Eggs

How I like my eggs.

If I take eggs to work, I make them soft boiled for easy handling.
If I eat at home, I scramble.

When I scramble eggs, use 3 whites and 2 yolks.

Update 2010: I eat 4 eggs a day now.  Every morning I boil 4 eggs.  I eat 2 whites and 1 yolk for breakfast.  I eat 2 whites and 1 yolk for lunch.  Then I may eat more eggs (for dinner, or if I feel like more eggs)

My Typical Breakfast: Orange colored drink is juice (apple, pear, carrots)

Lunch Shopping at Costco

* Today's Costco Shopping: 8th time this year, 2nd time this month

My coworker wanted Costco hotdog and pizza for lunch, so I gladly took him to Oxnard Costco.  He doesn't have a membership, see.  My coworker was like a kid in the candy store... He checked out the prices on a lot of TV's and other electronics.

Then we ate hotdogs and pizzas.  I am normally full after one hotdog, but I tend to eat a lot when I'm eating with a company.  Eating is more enjoyable with a company.  Especially, when I'm with my coworker, we play a little game to see how much we can eat.
