--A Kindle, and 5 e-books (I have recently decided that I can barely live without one of these. I lust after them; hanging out on the Amazon site, reading the reviews, staring longingly at the customer photos. I've talked myself down from hitting that "add to cart" button and just putting it on my Amazon Visa so many times. But I know that would be wrong, because you're supposed to actually be able to come up with that money at some point and I can't. This is ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS. Do you hear me Mom? Mr. Ashley? Loving readers? Just this. Well, maybe a bottle of Philosophy's Lemonade body wash, but that would be more of a stocking stuffer.)
--A year's worth of pedicures (I haven't had a pedicure since the one Catfish bought me before her wedding in December. I wear flip flops! I need pedicures! When I was pregnant I got one every two weeks no matter what just because it felt good.)
--3 nights of dinner and drinks at my favorite restaurant downtown.
--5 tanks of gas for the SUV.
--3 nights in a value hotel at Disney with 1 day of park tickets and free dining in September (Alright, I'd need $80 more but still. I'd be damn close.)
--416 items from Target's dollar spot.
--2 full color photography ads in the local family magazine.
--A whole new wardrobe for me. (Seriously, I can buy a lot of clothes for $416.)
--One weekend at the cottage in N. Florida we vacation at (when we are not poor).
And so much more! That was just way too much for a kid's physical. I was expecting $185, tops. Not FOUR HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN DOLLARS. Damn.
edited to add: I think Amazon would be smart to just give me a Kindle. I'd happily review it, and I'd happily beat you all over the heads with it's greatness until you just had to have your own. They'd make back that money in no time. They'd also be doing a good thing by keeping me from committing book related and/or library crime.
