Fry's Electronics today, hoping to snag some stuff on sale. No luck there. Either they were out of all their sale items on purpose, or a lot of other people had been out shopping before us. Probably saved me some money....which is good, because I lost it later in the day.
Got home with my buddy, and we were hanging out, watching the WB's Superstar USA (truly a great show - I have to respect something that makes my friend spend the entire show hiding his face because he's embarrassed for the show...it's amazing!), and MTV's Pimp My Ride, and the Missus decides that she wants to finally go to one of our local Indian casinos. I lose $40 at the blackjack tables, she loses a similar amount at the slot machines. My friend (who decided to come with) only lost $1. Not sure what made the Missus want to do this when I just got a new job, and we just laid out a budget that will enable us to save $8K or more towards a house....but she had fun, learned her lesson, and probably won't want to go back any time soon.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention, but I got two job offers last month (don't really want to go into too much detail, both are political, and I'd rather keep myself as anonymous as possible for the foreseeable future). How often does that happen in this economy? I have to say, it felt really nice after all this uncertainty I've been dealing with for the past year (of course it is only a campaign job, and my contract runs out the day of the election...but I'm not complaining!). For the first time in over a year I'm making more than the Missus! She loves that situation (as she eventually wants me to pull in the bacon and let her stay home with the (yet unborn) kids.
Not nearly as boring in person as on TV. That's not saying too much though....but he did have some great thoughts on moving the US away from our oil-dependent ways, which I think is fantastic (wouldn't life just be easier if we didn't have to worry about oil when dealing with the Middle East problem?).
And I know that you care what's playing in iTunes right now: "Whoever You Are" by Geggy Tah.
