Work Work Work

Pulling another double shift today working from 11:00 A.M.-1:00A.M. It hasn't been too bad though since I only work the register half the day and the other half I do my usual phone job.

I'm on pace for a 55 hour work week when I usually put in anywhere from 25-30. This all means I can expect a pretty nice paycheck next Tuesday which ALSO means I can finally get my new laptop. My original price range was anywhere between $800-$1200 but I found this really nice HP laptop that seems to be exactly what I'm looking for.

My main criterion was a slick design and a massive HDD.

This computer supplements both of these requirements. And at $700, I'll have some cash left over to burn on another little addiction I'm beginning to develop.

No, not drugs.


Television shows on DVD to be more specific. I'm really beginning to enjoy buying a bunch of TV shows on DVD. I've got quite a few already but I want to expand on the collection. Yesterday I bought all 12 seasons of South Park, Seasons 1 &2 of Boondocks and Seasons 1-9 of King of Queens.

On the soon to buy list is: Seinfeld, The Simpsons, The X Files, Everwood, Weeds and Lost.

Some of these shows like Seinfeld and The Simpsons for example, it really makes no sense for me to buy them on DVD since the shows are in syndication and have reruns like twice a day. But whatever, lol.Buying these isn't cheap though which is why I buy most of them off Craig's List or

Anyway, I've got the day off tomorrow and undecided about whether or not to go to the casino to put in a short 1/2NL session. I'm not really "in the mood" to play and unless that changes by tomorrow, I'll probably just stay home and watch game one of the NLDS between my Cubbies and the Dodgers. I like the Cubs and will probably have a play on them for tomorrow.
