Spring Semester Book Update

I went online and found my book way cheaper than the Pitt bookstore was offering it for. I went to Alibris and found the book for $50. I paid another $7 and got the study guide. My grand total with shipping was $64 a savings of $16. Hey that's $16 bucks I can spend on something else. I'm sure I'll go online for books every semester since Econ books are so expensive.

Where oh where to spend my windfall?!?!? I'm sure I'll think of something : D

Books For Spring Semester

Pitt thinks they're slick. They wait until the last minute to put books up online so you'll have to buy them from the campus bookstore. There's a huge mark-up naturally. I'm only taking 1 class this semester so I only need 1 book lucky for me.

It's a paperback book with about 300 pages. Brand new is $105, used is $80.25. I'm about too do an internet search to see if I can find the book cheaper. Wish me luck!!!!!!

Feliz Navidad

I just wanted to wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays!

I'm home right now visiting family. Every once in a while I wonder why I moved away. Then I come home for a visit, and boy oh boy do they remind me. My family is jacked up! Issues out the wazoo! I'm actually leaving today to go home and it's not a moment to soon. But I still love and miss them and after all, you can't pick your family.

It's all love. Peace and enjoy!

My Duh Moment

Have you ever watched Carlos Mencia? Well I definately feel like the "dee-dee-dee". I had a loan payment due to my credit union. If you belong to a credit union, you know that there is usually only 1 office. Of course the office closes at 4:00pm and I get off work at 4:45 so stopping by the office is not an option.

So I decided to put my payment through the mac machine. I went to the machine, put my card in and started looking for the loan payment button. There wasn't one. So I had to mail my payment in. Luckily it was 3 days before the payment was due so I knew it would be on time.

Fast-forward 2 days later when I go to the mac to get money. While looking on the screen under deposits it says ...... PAYMENTS. Big as day. How did I miss it? My dumb ass was straight looking for LOAN payments!

Go ahead and laugh. I know you are anyway. All I can do is shake my head and wonder in amazement at my goofiness.

The Man Can't Hold My Blog Down

By the time I get home from work everyday, I am entirely too tired to blog. After staring at a computer screen all day, I'm leery about staring at one at home. So my blog suffers and I only post entries every 2 weeks if I'm lucky.

The IT administrators at work have blogs and newsgroups blocked so I couldn't check my blog. BUT.... I just found out that I can actually write and submit my posts. Hot damn I'm back in business! So now I will be blogging at least once a week. Woohoo!

Stew on that IT guys!

I Love Southwest!!!!!!!!

I thought I was going to have to pay an arm and a leg in order to go home over the Christmas holiday weekend. I just went to the Southwest website and booked a round-trip ticket for less than $100 including tax! I went to a competitor site just to make sure it was a good deal. Cheapest ticket on that site is $250 and I would have to travel either early morning or late at night on Christmas Day. I plan on spending at least half of the day with my family. Southwest is awesome!
