In other news. If the motherfuckers on News Channel 10 tell me, “Not to put my shovel away” one more time, I’m going to have to take a hostage. I am all set with Winter. I’m sure I’ve mentioned this before. I want to be able to walk to and from work, enjoy time outside and not have to have my heat running 24-7/365.
I went shopping tonight. I normally don’t get to go shopping to much as I am a man of limited means. Tonight I just said, “what the hell” and walked into Barnes & Noble like I owned the place. Actually, I was there more to pick up my tax documents. Yes, in addition to risking my life everyday at the Agency, I also work part time for the most corporate of corporate America driven book retailers. I walked through the aisles seeing if anything grabbed my attention. I picked up this and
this. Now some of you are probably thinking I’m a wee bit old for the “His Dark Materials” series, however I was recommended the series by a good friend who felt we should discuss.
I walked up to the check out with purchases in hand and asked Kerri if it would be possible to get my W-2 info as well. “Not a problem. Oh, did you get your $100.00 gift card yet?” Exsqueeze me? Baking powder? “My $100.00 what?” I asked. “We won the district gift card sales contest over the holidays and everyone got a $100.00 gift card” my eyes jumped out of my head, “Sweet jumping Christ! That’s awesome” I began to salivate at the prospect of not having to pay for any of the things I had in my hands. Not only did I not have to pay for the books, I was able to get the old employee discount and pay twenty-something instead of forty-something and have even more $cha-ching$ left on the card. SWEET!
Due to my good fortune and a $100.00 windfall, I proceeded on to Target, where I bought, Friday Night Lights. I’m holding off on watching it cause I am breaking up with the television. I’m going to pay off the cable bill this week and then it’s over. The tv is my girlfriend no longer. I’ll have more $ for renovations, for netflix and most importantly for endless tunage. The renovations on the downstairs bathroom begin shortly. With any luck, I won’t do any irreparable damage to the house. Wish me luck.
