I came across

Text is this picture and Link is
this picture, and immediately sighed, "Wowwww." I'll bet it's even prettier when the sun is setting and the candles are lit. It does need more drapes though.

I just want to work and save so that I can have something like that some day.

Gas bill update

February 11th, 2010 at 01:50 pm

Well, I'm happy to report that my efforts to lower the gas bill is finally reaping some rewards. My latest gas bill just came in at around $67, which is comparable to the days when I was sleeping in the closet. Except now, I don't have to. So, it's kind of like progress or something.... Yay.

Denny's free grand slam

February 9th, 2010 at 02:03 am

is tomorrow morning between 6am to 2pm. Now, the only way I'm going cash in on this is if I wake up early at 6am, before I get to work. However, it seems like a lot of commitment to get up that early, even if it is (mostly) free food. For example, it means I really have to wake up around 5:30am, and then drive out of my way to get there and then back to work.

I don't know.... Still thinking about it.

How about you guys? Got a Denny's around you? Thinking about trying this out?

Stock market talk.

Sorry, don't know how to spin this one into a soap opera. Feels more like a street mugging to me.

Toyota still make good cars. No question about it. However, this pedal issue is getting spun out of control. *rimshot*

Yes, it's a serious safety hazard. However, the problem is temporary and fixable. They need to fix it, and they're already on it. But until then, the stock took a solid hit right in the gut, especially after comments from the US Transportation Secretary. Pow!

You know what that means? Pullback is buy!

If I was a bit more attentive, I should've bought today, but if it's still floundering by tomorrow, I'm going to clear some cash and get me a piece of this.

Nice dream

February 3rd, 2010 at 03:10 pm

I don't know why I'm mentioning this, but I just had one of the best dreams for as long as I can remember.

It was a bright, sunny day, and there were lots of trees and flowers around. I found a large cave complex that was completely suitable to house my entire family. It even had a small waterfall nearby. The whole experience was very calming. I think I was actually... happy!

Of course, then I woke up. I woke up around 4am I think. I wasn't at all upset. Rather, the first thing my conscious thought turned to was, "Ok, but now we need to figure out a way to weather proof the area, figure out a water and rain collection system, as well as a food scouting details, and a fire pit for warmth and cooking. Oh, and we also need to worry about predators such as wolves, bears, and most importantly, the Park Rangers." Big Grin

Then I thought, "What am I doing? It's just a dream. But... I wonder why I had that dream, and why is it so calming to me?" Shifting in bed, I thought some more, "Hmm. Although I am very, very grateful to be able to live where I am, psychologically, I feel very displaced because I know this isn't my home. Maybe that's why I'm having this dream. A dream about finally finding a place of my own. A place that I can one day stretch out my legs and finally relax."

Wide awake now, I thought to myself, "Of course, all this will require money. Money to afford my own home." Which goes all the way back to why I am so money-driven to begin with. Not so much because I am greedy for money, but just, among other things, I yearn for a place I can finally call home.
