As I commented yesterday, Company O. elected to give me another bonus for my work during the last six months. It couldn't have come at a better time. Mrs. Geek and I have some debt that needs to be paid off. This extra money is going to help get the debt repayment ball rolling.
I couldn't help indulging myself a little bit, however. Last Saturday, Mrs. Geek and I made a little pilgrimage to a nearby outlet mall, where we freshened up our respective wardrobes for not that much money at all. Among the many wonderful shops we saw there, we found a Le Creuset store. Since I was lusting after a new dutch oven recently, I had to stop and look. Once there, I couldn't resist. Ok... that's not quite true. I knew I was going to buy the damn thing before I went down there.
Now I know that there are those of you who will ask, "why didn't you get the citrus, the flame, or the cherry red?" I tend to subscribe to the "if you've got it, don't flaunt it" school of thought. I'd rather have the food inside the pot taste great than have folks admiring the color. Besides, this was the color that both Mrs. Geek and I liked.
