Marcy’s Law: Every new purchase immediately deserves another to keep it company.

He’s here, people. Sam got home from California last night around dinner-time — sick, clammy and exhausted after a draining day of travel. Airports are shitty enough when you’re healthy; add flu and a fever to the agenda and you’re a guaranteed wreck. Sam stayed home from work today and I’m guessing he might be home for the rest of the week. Keep an eye on the Howdygram for occasional health updates. Thank you.

To amuse myself this morning I decided to spend a little dough online, starting with the following Lasko 24-inch space heater from Amazon because I’m always so damn cold when I hang out in the study writing Howdygram posts. This is a 1500-watt oscillating heater with a digital display, remote control, all kinds of exciting heat settings and a programmable thermostat. It’ll be here on Wednesday. (The sooner the better.)
To celebrate our space heater — because every new purchase immediately deserves another to keep it company — I immediately ordered the following healthy snacks from Wal-Mart for diabetics with a sweet tooth such as yours truly. This includes several boxes of Atkins low-carb candy bars, Glucerna sugar-free mini caramel whatnots and three six-packs of Glucerna dairy-free shakes in a variety of tasty flavors (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry).

I’ll have to come back later and write another post because right now I’m too damn tired and too damn hungry to sit here one more minute. I’m considering Oscar Mayer pickle & pimiento loaf on a toasty low-carb onion roll with strawberry Jell-O and a bag of Pop Secret for dessert. Please don’t be jealous and have a nice day.
