Thieves, Valentines Day and SNL immersion
Wait, wrong scenario.
Picture it, Friday, chiropractor. I'm done with my last visit for a month and I go to pay. She swipes my card, gives the machine a puzzled look and says "I've never seen that before. Can I swipe it again?" I was a little nervous because I didn't want to get charged twice so I let her swipe it again and she said "it's asking me to force a sale and I don't feel comfortable doing that." I had my checkbook on me, thank God, so I paid with a check but there's nothing like that feeling you get when everyone is judging you for being a deadbeat. We pay off our balance every month so I knew that being declined being my fault wasn't a possibility. The woman said to call the credit card company when I get home just to see what's up. So the Mr called. Come to find out our card number was likely sold and when it came up trying to be used in France, Oklahoma and Missouri in the same 24 hour period, the credit card company flagged it and declined it. Son of a BITCH! Only two charges went through and for under $60 total which we'll have to dispute but we're not responsible for. We had to change our card when the Target breach happened and I wouldn't be surprised if this is related to the Home Depot breach where they sit on peoples card numbers just long enough for them to stop checking their statements regularly and then release the hounds. So here we are AGAIN having to get a new card. So irritating. Check your statements regularly people.
Valentines Day we were basically snowed in and that was fine because we didn't have plans anyway. I did gift the Mr a spa day. He looked horrified at first but when I informed him I would be the one administering it, he loosened up. Mani/pedi and massage. His shoulder has been hurting him pretty bad lately and to save us in chiropractor bills, I thought I'd give it a go on working it out. He said it's much better so I'll work it out for him over the next week or two daily if he wants to keep it from kinking back up.
Speaking of kink, anyone see Fifty Shades of Grey? I haven't read the books and the snippet I did read online I couldn't get past the incredibly bad writing style so it just didn't appeal to me. I hope that the movie is good for the sake of the people who are seeing it simply based off the enjoyment of the books. The main characters cast in that movie look like they just hate each other in the press junkets I've had thrust upon me. Jamie Dornan (whom I loved in Once Upon a Time back in the day) almost seems like he is irritated to be in it from all of the interviews I've seen. Too bad David Beckham didn't want to transition into acting because I think I'd have camped out to see it then.
Last night we indulged in a night full of Saturday Night Live and their 40th anniversary.
Mr. Robinson's neighborhood ("WHO IS IT??"), Bill Murray as Hercules ("That boulder is too large. I could lift a smaller one"), Billy Crystal as Fernando ("you look mahvelous") I don't know why I remember a particular sketch with Father Guido Sarducci where he would throw spaghetti on the ceiling to see when it was done and when it fell he'd call for his dog Sport. I thought that was the most hilarious thing I ever saw as a kid. Well that and Ed Grimley ("I must say") I annoyingly imitated the Church Lady, Hans and Franz and Wayne's World throughout high school and the Mr and I bonded over those classic moments during our dating years. Of course our newer classics like Colonel Angus, Stefon (my FAVE!), Dick in a Box (a Christmas classic!) and others. It was a great night long celebration.
What were some of your favorite SNL skits? If you never watched, what did you do this weekend?
