Holy Cheese Please

Begin Rant
I was ripped off!  I demand a refund, I was robbed of all of the Velveeta that I was promised.  My 16 oz block was more like a 15 oz block and we can't be having that.  I wonder how many other unsuspecting Velveeta lovers such as myself get home with their processed cheese block to find out that the cheese factory has a little cheese scam going on.  You see, this is how they make their money.  Just think about it, if they are charging for 16 oz and only providing 15 oz, that means they are pocketing the extra money all the cheese consumers are  spending.  If I wanted cheese with holes, I would have bought swiss thank you very much.
End Rant.

I also got a table today.  We sold our dining room table at a garage sale when we sold the house last year.  It had seen better days, so we let it go to greener pastures.  Fast forward to today, my two week long craigslist scavenger hunt finally paid off.  I followed that recycled furniture rainbow and found my pot of gold.  I refused to pay mucho dinero for a dining set that will have to survive multiple moves with the Army, babies, and a dog. (yes Dad and Mr. Randy, I said the word babies)  There are some real quacks on CL that don't understand the meaning of used furniture and wanted to treat their cast-offs like a national treasure.  No, I will not pay $1500 for your 7 year old wicker and oak dining room table with a palm leaf pattern.  No, I don't care of Justin Timberlake sat on it naked.  So today I did the craigslist song and dance, and with the help of my friend Katie, we loaded that bad boy and brought it home.  Now my dining room looks less like an empty hole in the house and more like a well, dining room.


It has six chairs and leaf, but my micro sized dining area will not accommodate all of that, so for now they will be banished to the black hole of The Langford Residence (the 3rd bedroom).  By the time I add the two chairs and leaf I guarantee you that I won't be able to open or close the door anymore.
