I know, it's humiliating! I'm 37 and single, and now I'm ordering off of Q. V. Freakin'. C. I might as well get me a bunch of cats while I'm at it, cause I just sealed my fate of dying an old bitter maid.
Here's the problem. I have a bit of a problem with insomnia....and even though I'm EXHAUSTED at night, I often can't sleep, so on goes the TV until the wee hours of the morning. That's how I got my addiction to The Wizards of Waverly Place. OOH! Have you heard Salena Gomez's new song on the radio? SO awesome!
Anywhootles....anyone that's up late enough knows that not much is on the old boob tube after 1 a.m. except infomercials. I cannot tell you how many times I've watched the one on WEN hair products by Chaz Dean (loved him on "Flipping Out"). That little Melissa Gilbert can really suck you in with her infomercial skills...she's a REALLY good actress. And don't get me started on Valerie Bertanelli and her show on Cindy Crawford's skin care line...that biotch looks amazing at 46 (thanks Surfer Wife for your awesome celebrity encounter BTW).
So this has been going on for several weeks. And even though I've
had to sit on my hands to not get my credit card out of my wallet been slightly tempted to call once or twice, I have held fast and firm to the truth that TV advertising is junk. (Anyone remember the Perfect Brownie Pan disaster of '09?)
Tonight I was upstairs cleaning up the kitchen, minding my own business, when I strolled by the
livingroom and this picture caught my eye.
What's that you ask? Why it's the Cottage Farms 12-piece miniature rose collection, of course! I couldn't resist it. It was only $29.9 plus shipping. And the two gay guys on QVC talked me in to it! (The gays can be a pretty persuasive people ya know!) So with 10 seconds to spare, I swallowed my pride, called Julie on QVC and gave her my debit card. She was really nice and didn't act like I had anything to be embarrassed about, by the way.
Though that didn't stop me from talking quietly so my sister wouldn't call upstairs to ask me who I was talking to.
P.S. Only 3 more days to enter my giveaway!
