Roommate L just discovered the perfect gadget for me:

Tough Times Belt Puncher

Tough Times Belt Puncher

It takes your net income and estimated cost of living and calculates where the next hole in the belt will be punched — perfect for the poverexic girl, or boy.

I’ve re-watched this week’s episode of 30 Rock about 5 times this weekend, and it has given me the most intense cravings for an Oreo McFlurry.  So I finally bought myself one, and it was incred, but can I just say that McFlurrys are now like half the size that they used to be in the 1990s?!?!?!  As much as I love Mickey D’s, my biggest complaint against them is their ridiculously small portion sizes that are unfair to the nth degree.  This whole “health conscious America” movement thing is complete bullshit and poverexia’s greatest enemy.

Anyway, I have to disagree with Salma Hayek and say that I would have definitely preferred Tahitian-vanilla-bean ice cream in a pool of cognac, drizzled in the world’s most expensive chocolate (Amedei Porcelana), covered with shaved white, black, and clear truffles, and topped with edible 25-karat gold leaf over that McFlurry that I finished in like 3 bites.  The day I can afford the Lovers’ Delight will be the day I know I’ve really made it in life.
