The things you own...

Having a money (albiet a modest amount) sucks. When I was scraping together rent money by playing poker and selling stuff on ebay, I didn't really have anything left to buy anything else except maybe some beer. Now I have some spare cash and I still have no money. On top of rent and other crap, I just spend my money on a bunch of junk that I don't really need. I shouldn't be allowed to have money. I'm going to try and spend some loot on buying real Christmas presents this year. Maybe that will stop me form buying the GIJoe with the Kung Fu grip for my self.

Freezing

I am just returned from a very cold night at the Glass Bowl. The game is still going on, but when I left, Toledo was up by 7. Now I don't know what is going on since Toledo is losing by 7. The point that I really want to drive home at this point is where I tailgated tonight. It is like a milestone for me because this is the first game I have been to since I graduated. I sat in the alumni section and tailgated in lot 10 instead of fraternity row or Rocket Hall. Nate called wanting to come tailgate with us but I knew that he had been partying since noon and he sounded like it when he called me. In the interest of saving any chance that Nate has of getting in good with my boss, I am glad that he never made his way to the tailgate. Nate was faced... he called me Bill. I hope that I did him a favor, but only time will tell. It looks like NIU is about to score again so I am going to go hang myself since it is now official that every sports team that I root for loses clutch games. I am just going to have to go play and show them how it's done because obviously me not playing is only hurting these teams.

Receipts

There are a few stores out there that I can't believe haven't gotten a visit from the EPA or some other environmental agency. Hav you seen the size of receipts lately?! I went to Circuit City the other day to buy a cable for my computer. I'm talking about a small piece of cord that cost $4.87. The receipt was as long as my arm. That is rediculous. I can't even put it in my wallet because it is so wide too! Best Buy is guilty and so is Kroger. I bought a thank you card there yesterday and I couldn't have used the receipt as the envelope. I could go on and rant about how uneccesary that is.. so I will. What the hell ar they thinking? What business practice tells these companies that it is cost efficient to waste that much money on paper and ink. I mean think about it, nationwide, how many Circuit City's are there, and everyday each store makes probably hundreds of transactions, how much paper is wasted everyday? If you add up all the costs for paper, ink, and medical bills for employees that get punched in the face, that has to be a lot of money. Did they just decide that they were making too much money and needed to spend some of it on unecccesarily large receipts? Seriously, I would like to know.

Happy Birthday to Me

It is 7:00 on a Thursday and I have a little jag on. Hopefully to be followed by a big jag tomorrow night. The new BW3 down the street is pretty fun although it is a little noisy. I would spend more time there but there doesn't appear to be darts let alone room to move around. Either way, good times.
