I wish I had as much enthusiasm about updating my blog as I do about telling people about my blog. I have, however, added my rants and whines to the Divanee Magazine editors’ blog, so until I get back in business on bsk, check that out.

Are You Calling Me Fat?

The CVS ExtraCare Card has been a source of fascination for me ever since its inception. I eagerly wait as they print out my receipt, hoping for the elusive “$4 off your next purchase of $20 or more” coupon so I can go right back into the store to stock up on bodywash and cotton swabs and candy. Over the years I’ve bought far more gum, dental floss, and eyeliner than I could ever possibly need, just because my receipts enticed me with 50-cents-off or buy-one-get-one-free offers. I am SUCH a desi sometimes.

Some people are a bit freaked out by how the register spits you out coupons based on your current purchases, so they’re fine-tuned toward the kinds of things you might like. But I always thought it makes sense – I don’t need $2 off of Rogaine, so I’d rather have a balding uncle be the lucky recipient of such a deal. But when I’m buying some new eyeshadow, a coupon for eye makeup remover might prove to be a friendly reminder.

I’ve always been a big fan of the CVS ExtraCare card. Until this week, that is.

So on Monday I run to CVS for a late afternoon pick-me-up, and head to the register carrying a big bag of Cheetos.

My coupon? $2 off diet pills.

I hate you, CVS ExtraCare Card.
