Hey, boys and girls, here’s my very first report from the Howdygram’s new I’ll Bet I Get Better Email Than You Do department! Today my inbox included:

  • A free jar of vanilla bean paste from My Spice Sage when you spend $30.
  • Get your mystery coupon from
  • A big Father’s Day sale from Asian Food Grocer featuring do-it-yourself gummi candy-making kits, anime mouse pads and wasabi powder. This is even worse than Total Diabetes Supply.

It’s almost 7 p.m. and the perfect opportunity to inject some insulin, forage for dinner before my blood sugar gets too low and enjoy today’s episode of “People’s Court.” Do I lead a stimulating life, or what?
