I had a $10 winning scratch off in my car from about a week ago and decided to cash it in while I was at work today. I probably spend about an average of $5 a week on scratch offs, only because I work in a grocery store that has a big machine that automatically dispenses 24 different games. Anyway, I played about 10 tickets worth of various $1 and 2$ games, some losers and some winners. Anything I won I put back into the machine to try and play for a bigger pot. Well finally I purchased three $1 tickets and a $2 ticket called Super Slots. I lost on all three $1 tickets and lost on the first part of the Super Slots game. Then on part two, where you have to match the winning numbers to your numbers, I won. I matched the number 8 and won $100. I called it quits and now I’ve got spending money and can put all of my paycheck directly into the bank. Sweet.

Soon after my last post I made another poster purchase on eBay:
March 10, 2006
The basement is finally nearing completion. My mom and I started working on this thing over a month ago, and it’s been a slow process, partially because of my prior commitments with school and other things, and partially because my mom is a better procastinator than I am.
With all that said, the painting is done, although not colors I would have picked (I’m hoping to be gone in a year anyway, so I don’t care too much), and my mom finally decided on a carpet she likes, which took her two weeks to do. The carpet will be installed next week, which is a hassle because everything – the couch, tables, computer desk, chairs, TV, entertainment center, and shelves – will have to be moved. I can’t wait until that is finished.
I am now in the process of finding posters to order. I am going to frame movie posters and hang them all over the basement. I have found and ordered my first poster. The Blues Brothers. My mom was trying to get me to go with a classic movie theme and put up posters of films from the 30’s and 40’s. I refused. I want movies that I actually like, own, and watch every now and then. Picky? Maybe. But I don’t care.
