Ashley is my friend. You know her by now. She's also my reading buddy. We bought Kindles together last year and have enjoyed buying and reading all the same books together, often embarrassingly cheesy or trashy or otherwise not-worthy-of-our-very-literary-selves books, and we keep each other's shameful secrets. And it's better than before, when we had to buy these paperbacks and read them in shame. The beauty of the Kindle is that you can read anywhere and nobody knows what garbage you're reading! You can pretend to be reading Tolstoy at all times and nobody is the wiser.
She bought the blender, you guys. I went with her to Costco to see with my own eyes. BlendTec Mark up in his fancy kiosk with his headset microphone just like Billy Mays whizzed up a blender full'o'hot soup right before my eyes and yes, it was delicious. And hot. And soup.
And yes, I'm kind of jealous and want my own BlendTec. OK? I said it. It's RED. It's the same blender they use at Jamba Juice. I really want a smoothie. Razzmatazz, please.
If Ashley can make me a Razzmatazz I may forgive her for spending all her money on a blender and passing on the $79 Kindle. MAYBE.
By the way, I think this is the blender. If you're going to buy one, just do me a favor and do it by clicking this link, ok? That way I get a cut. And if enough of you buy them, maybe I can buy my own.
