Confirmation of many things...

I must say that Galaxy Quest has truly got to be one of the most frickin' hilarious movies that have come out in recent years. Dave mentioned the movie yesterday, which prompted me to watch it again today. It's just so ... perfect!

Jen is out at my aunt's today, doing more scrapbooking. So I get to clean up the house for her friends to come over tonight. Whoopie! Boy, I just lead a life of fun, eh?

Last week, the hard drive on my desktop at home went teets up. Thankfully, Best Buy has a fairly good hard drive for cheap after rebates. And because I have their Reward Zone card, I get credit for the original purchase price. Oh, and this was double points weekend, so I'll end up with an additional $10 coupon. And since I paid with my Visa, I get travel miles for the full purcahse price too. Then I walked next door and bought shampoo that is normally $1.49 for $0.49 because of a $1 off coupon at Target. All of which proves that I am one cheap bastard. =)


"... Aw, that's not right!"

Ah yes, the infamous Saving Money By Spending Money Syndrome.

I actually have found a legit Spend$2Save$ scenario, btw. Those Enterainment coupon books last year had $5 off purchase of $50 coupons for Ralph's grocery stores -- one for every month. So total savings over a year was $60. I paid $20 for the book. I bought two.

That's not even counting the resteraunt discounts...

I've been asking around for those Entertainment coupon books all over town! I got mine at the Borders here in Oxnard today ($25), but I was hoping to find a local organization from which to buy one, so I can support a worthy local cause. Oh well...

Where did you get your book?

I actually bought it online at http://www.entertainment.com -- free shipping and $5 off.

... besides, I was going to spend the money anyway for both items. I just spent a significant amount *less* money is all. So nyeah! =P

No need to justify it to me...

Wasn't aware I was "justifying" it. Just making a comment is all.

Are you feeling any better yet?

(I was teasing :p)

I'm finally feeling a lot better, thanks for asking!

"Perhaps I am NOT as stupid as I am ugly!!!"

"Minors, not miners!!"

Yes, I love that movie. I'm overdue to watch it again, actually.
