Dolla dolla bill y'all. Anyways, someone in my house has a disorder! What do I do? Lil' Steve has the one-click problem. That little bugger loves purchasing things! I've tried to explain to the guy that student loans aren't free money, but I don't think he gets it. You have to pay those back! When Stevey spends piles of money that are at least 3 times as tall as he is I sometimes get a little jealous. Srsly, check out his purchases.
First, a special diamond necklace, a perfect replica of his own head!
And a van?
He saw that some other extremely wealthy souls buy exotic pets like tigers or sharks. Here is what Steve bought for our house!

BUT the whole purpose of this shindig is to not discuss anyones height or spending habits, but to show you what exactly Steve and I have been learning through this whole shopping frenzy.
The internet is crazyyyyyyy. Correct, shopping has taught us the simple fact that the internet is crazy and it's up to us to save ourselves from cardboard asphyxiation. I definitely did not spell that word right the first time. But I did spell Schwarzenegger correct the other day.
Continuing on, the whole purpose of this blog entry was to talk about just how things are being mailed now-a-days. Here is the process.
- Steve decides he neeeeeeeeeeeds hand woven paper-towels from Equatorial Guinea.
- Search "pretentious hand wipes"
- CLICK BANG BUY
- Amazon tracks down said product in their warehouse, gets its measurements.
- Amazon takes this, and puts it into a mathematical formula that is something along the lines of:
- Size of Goods x 5 + X = Perfect box size
- Then, they fill this box with the small thing you actually order, and then stuff several rolls of the little life-vest esq plastic airbubble wraps into it so your paper towels don't get damaged in transit.
- 2 day shipping begin!
Arts and crafts, crafts and art.

|Cardboard clothes, Yep.|
|Whoa, everyone should check out this camera I made of cardboard and speaking of cameras what about DBCphoto.COM???|
This turns into a real problem (or artistic journey?) when the things I buy (erasers, calculators, notebooks, flashcards) get shipped in refrigerator boxes. Study-swag.
