Today I took part in a silent auction with the proceeds to benefit the Hurricane Katrina victims. I bid on a bunch of stuff, but came away with two incredible deals. Now, I didn’t come to work with the intention of buying anything other than lunch from the cafe or maybe a snack from the convenience store. I’ve been good about staying true to my monthly budget for the most part, but today changed things… a lil’ bit. After it was all said and done, I ended up hittin’ up the ATM machine twice. However, with the things that I got today, I can stash a lot of it away til Christmas. Anyway, this is what I ended up buying:

oh yeah I almost forgot the one thing that I really wanted… well sorta… being that I collect sports figurines and bobblehead dolls, I decided to add one of the slickest cats in the entertainment biz to my entourage…
the second auction package that I purchased also included a Snoop Dogg bobblehead doll… lol
(I know… I know… I look thrilled sitting at my desk right??? lol)
speaking of the Doggfather himself I got one more thing to say before I go… I’m gonna leave you with one of my favorite corny jokes…
