The Evil that is Bed, Bath & Beyond

Yesterday, I went to Bed, Bath & Beyond to get one thing. A spice rack. Yes, in my attempt to be more domestic, I decided to purchase an item. This turned into several items to help me in the kitchen. I left with 4 items for the kitchen and the rest, well . . . they had nothing to do with the kitchen, but caught my eye. And it is this evilness that wreaks havoc on my funds. I try, really I try to use restraint, but I have come to one conclusion and that is--this is Anthony's fault. If we were engaged, we could register for all of the things I keep buying and I wouldn't be sucked in to the evilness that is Bed, Bath & Beyond. So, all in all I can't be held accountable for anything that takes place in businesses like: Crate & Barrel, Williams-Sonoma or Bed, Bath & Beyond because the way I see it--a wedding registry might just cure these tendencies I have to spend time in stores that promise domestic bliss after purchasing their products. (okay, I use the term "bliss" lightly) but you know what I mean.

ha! i've been through the bad, bad & beyond drill many times (and i'm hardly the domesticated male). go in for one thing, buy 18 instead. you're right, it is evil. it's a good thing one doesn't feel this way in ikea.

Yup, it's my fault. Sorry I made you buy that spice rack, and the little dish scrubby thing and those scented candles. For that matter,I apologize for forcing my love of colorful drink coasters and fuzzy bath mats on you. Now if you would just stop forcing me to blow all my money at Guitar Center and Video Hut!
