I won $100

Super SlotsI 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.

One more poster for today

Soon after my last post I made another poster purchase on eBay:

Back to the Future

The basement is finally coming together

The Blues BrothersThe 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.
