My panties are in a bunch again--over new panties

I'm reading: My panties are in a bunch again--over new pantiesTweet this!

I was cleaning up and sorting through my various files and piles of papers and came across a coupon from the BlogHer conference. HerRoom.com offered each blogger a free pair of panties so we could start blogging in our underwear. Um, doesn't everyone already to that? I mean, except the people who blog in public places.

Anyhoo. I was all fine and dandy until I hit the checkout line and then it refused to process my order. After several attempts I called their toll-free number, but they are closed on the weekends. (Closed on the weekends? Are they a brick and mortar store?)

So I'm tossing the coupon code and the free panties that would have gone with it. We have about 50 coupons sitting around for 15% off at Kohl's so maybe I'll make a trip there and buy in bulk with my own hard-earned cash instead.

On a brighter note, earlier this summer I started making a photobook of our summer road trip to Washington, DC trip over at Photoworks. Only, it got put on hold because, as you might recall, our house was burglarized, then I went to BlogHer, then Pikachu had surgery, then Smartypants had surgery, then I had surgery and somewhere in all of this tumult, I lost not only the coupon code Photoworks sent me to try out their product, but all contact info from their PR rep.

A frantic email later to a one of the company's generic mailboxes and they found all the info for me. Hooray!

Now off to clean and finish up my photobook!

Why are panties so much less fun to buy than bras?? Or maybe that's just me.

I am convinced, by the way, that coupons and the like have been put on this earth to make us feel guilty for forgetting to use them.
