I was promised fame and fortune

I wasn’t, really, but the title popped into my head and I went with it.

Here is how my brain works sometimes.

Random question pops into my head.

Do I still own vain-girl.com? Remember the time when it was turned into a porn site and a friend thought to ask you if you were running it?

Instead of logging into godaddy to check, I click on over to whois.com because, this way I can both check to see if I own it again and what info is being shown if I do.

Once there, I type vain-girl.com in the wrong search box and I’m told it’s taken (okay, by whom? Me??) and do I want to buy vain-baby.com. Oooh. I do want vain-baby.com! How funny is that?!? But what would I use it for? Don’t be a goofball. You’ve spent the last year unloading unnecessary domains. Do not add another one.

Remember when, back in the 90s, people bought a crapton of simple domains in the hopes that some company would come along and want to pay a bazillion dollars for petrock.com (wait, hold on. Let’s check something. Yep, it’s actually a website selling pet rocks. Isn’t life grand?)? I never did fall into that trap but I did at one point own about 20+ domains simply because they were funny and I hated the thought of someone else owning them. Which is why I CANNOT get the idea of owning vain-baby out of my head now. Of course, with as many times as I’ve typed that now, it’ll get pulled into some search engine, some magical internet stuff will happen and the domain will be gone simply because it’s showed up three times in the last hour or something. I mean, I’m not really sure how the internet works except if I throw money at it sometimes boxes show up on my doorstep with clothes that I don’t need.

I’m sensing a theme here.

In other news, my budgeting habits need some reinforcing so this week is supposed to be a “DO NOT SPEND MONEY YOU DON’T HAVE ON THINGS YOU DO NOT NEED” week. I was doing okay until mid-day when I decided I needed a Coke. Grand scheme of things, spending a $1.25 isn’t awful and I have half of it left over for tomorrow, which is YUMMY, I know, right? Still. Baby steps. Damn it. There’s the B word again. Back to other news, this is also supposed to be “DON’T EAT STUFF YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE EATING” week. Which, let’s face it, with my weight issues is really “DON’T EAT STUFF YOU’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE EATING” life but let’s not get bogged down on details. Today was kind of okay on that front. Not great but I did get out for a walk during lunch so all in all, this Monday was better than last Monday and some weeks that’s all a girl can ask for.
