I was going to spend most of the day doing almost nothing, and I mostly succeeded. I caught up on episodes of Dollhouse and Better off Ted but my buddy Il called and wanted help moving a fireplace insert in his parents’ house. This involved standing around and chatting with Il and his brother Duk, and very little moving which is a good thing since the fireplace insert was pretty darn heavy.
As long as I was out I decided to stick more of my dad’s coins into the Coinstar machine. I think Coinstar is kind of a ripoff if you try to get folding money out of it because they charge 8.5%. However, if you decide you want eCertificates (like to Amazon, iTunes, or Cabelas) you get all the money. That’s kind of a scam, too, because I always feel like it’s free money and get an Amazon eCertificate to spend on frivilous items. My dad had 629 pennies, by the way, and his coins plus my pocket change from the past couple of months was $31.69 of Amazon crap for me. That’s about three books on my Kindle.
I was going to waste the rest of the day but Nurse Tiff called and said people were watching the Blazer game at her place, which was great for me because I have no TV signal at my house. She also had tasty steak and asparagus, because nothing says dinner like making your pee smell funny. After the upsetting loss by our team, several of us headed to Voodoo Doughnuts and took them back to Nurse Tiff’s. Now I’ve had so much sugar that my teeth hurt. Somehow, I don’t think if I’m doing this dessert thing right.
