New shoes

March 28, 2012 // Posted in Living, Money (Tags: , , ) |  Comments Off on New shoes

Okay, so I had to go buy some new sandals for summer. I love sandals and now that the weather is nice, I couldn’t keep my feet in sneakers and boots anymore. I have the biggest shoe fetish, but sandals are on the top of the list. I don’t want to brag but I do have cute feet and I like to show them off. Leather sandals are my favorite. I don’t really like a lot of flowery shit on them either. Just a pair of leather sandals and I am happy as a lark. I bought three different pair. Two are nice enough to wear to work too.

I will probably buy more of them as I go through them quickly during the summer months. I have a bad habit of getting them wet, but I don’t care. They aren’t very expensive and are easily replaced. I do have to buy a new pair of hiking boots though. I usually don’t wear boots during the summer, but we are going camping a lot this summer and I am going to need them. If you really like sandals, then I recommend Payless for good leather sandals or sandals of any kind. They usually have a large selection.

Flat tire

Blah, I had a flat tire on the way to work. That was a major pain in the ass because I didn’t have a spare. I thought I had replaced it but I forgot apparently and had to get a tow to tire kingdom. At least I know someone who works there and was able to get a ride to work from there. He is going to put some new tires on and then bring me my car on his lunch break. Right now I have his car so I know that I will see my car soon. Tire Kingdom is really good and their prices are not bad. I cannot believe that I forgot to replace that fucking tire though. I had picked up a nail in it while passing through a construction site I had to drop some papers off at.

I should mention it to my boss, because she told me when it happened to charge the company for the tire. After all I was using my car for work, so she said they are responsible for it. I make sure to use someone else’s car now if I have to run to a job site. I don’t like breaking down.

Upgraded

okay, so I upgraded my fucking laptop and now it is running much better. I had to get a new graphics card because the old on just wasn’t cutting it. I thought about a new lappy, but honestly I love my laptop. It’s like an old friend that I really don’t want to live without. I know that the new laptops are more advanced and have a lot of new features, but I just can’t seem to let go of this one. I might think about buying a new one next year, but for now I will stick and stay. That is unless it breaks or something.

I got this one when I went to college and there is a lot of history in it. My friends make fun of me because I wont replace it but they just don’t understand. I guess I am kind of a pack rat. I don’t like to get rid of things that have memories. My family isn’t surprised by this at all. I have always been sentimental about my stuff. No matter though, I am not worried about what everyone else thinks at all. I just laugh and say whatever. Anyway, have a good day.

Went to see Chronicle

February 11, 2012 // Posted in Mine, Money, Movies (Tags: , , ) |  Comments Off on Went to see Chronicle

That movie was fucking awsome. I wont kill the movie for you but I will give you a little recap. These kids go down this shaft in the ground and find something. When they come out the have these amazing powers and can do all of this stuff. Unfortunately, one of them is psycho and cannot handle the power so goes berzerk and starts killing people. The movie has lots and lots of action, which I love, and is totally amazing. I want to see it again so bad. I know that when it comes out on video, I will definitely be adding it to my collection of awesome flicks.

I am very picky about the movies I buy. There is not a single boring movie in my collection. My friends are always asking to borrow my movies, but I tell them they can watch it at my house, but it cannot leave my house. I used to loan them out, but people wouldn’t return them, so I stopped. I wouldn’t really mind if people would return them, but they cost a lot of money and quite frankly I don’t work to buy stuff for other fucking people. I buy the movies for me.

Lease vs Buy

June 19, 2011 // Posted in Money, Vehicles (Tags: , , , ) |  Comments Off on Lease vs Buy

One of my casual Facebook friends posted that he has to get a new car and he is thinking about getting a lease instead of buying the car. I don’t know why he is worried about that. He is a musician who makes good money – you would think he can buy anything he wants.

All of his friends talked about how the leases have a mileage restriction – something like 30,000 miles total for the 3 year lease term. I drive about 20,000 miles each year, so that kind of a mileage restriction would not work out for me at all.
