The Plan

Every so often I realize that I've been spending too much. As a result I take a month (although the first time was 40 days) and 'fast' on spending. It's not easy, but it's quite helpful in many ways. Each time I've done this I have actually made between 50 and 200 dollars. Combine that with the money I didn't spend, and the fact that I reformed my spending, it can have a big impact financially.

Day 25: Kung Pow ignite


Today was a travel day. As you might guess this means BK double cheeseburgers, and dealing with the hassle of paying for gas with cash. The place I stopped this time didn't make you pay in advance though so it was nicer at least. Before I left I polished of my leftover pizza from last night, folded laundry and watched a crummy cartoon version of a book I read when I was younger. Netflix had 'DragonLance' available for streaming and as the reviews stated, it wasn't that good.

The trip up was rather uneventful. I went home to my parents house and hung out with them for a while. We had beef stew and I did a great job spilling things. Mom got into it too. I don't know what my problem was. The good thing is that I spilled OJ all over the sale ads in the newspaper. Take that temptation!

Later on I drove down to see Anna. We had very tasty chinese food for dinner and watched 'Yes Man'. I was suprised how good it was since I tend not to like Jim Carey all that much. After the movie we watched Glee and she shared her birthday cake. The cake was fun because it was from work and as a result had some unique qualities. It didn't have 'Anna' on it, instead it had 'Dr Hodges'. So it's the first time she's had Dr on it, first time to have her last name on it, and maybe first time without Anna on it :). In any case it was tasty. As a special treat for me Anna bought me a Whatchamacallit. I'll be saving that for the trip back to Blacksburg!
