Drops in the bucket - A little less than a happy high

Drops in the bucket
I'm going to be on rice and beans for a while. This will afford me the opportunity to see just how creative I can be with them, which I'm going to say is good for now.

Nope, it's nothing serious and it's fully under control. Still, unexpected expenses must have a dampening effect on an otherwise cavalier approach to my finances.

ETA: $854.98. Yep, I gotta lie low.

Standard beer and munchies request applies.

Figure 7-7:30. House clutter needs some work, but I've reconciled myself with that for the time being.

I'll send you cinemama's address if you promise not to send me any beer...

Wait... that does not compute.

Drink your peche so I can bring you more.

Yeah. Turns out that the front brakes weren't serviced by the previous owner, so I was eating rotors over the past couple of months. Couple that with support rods for the front suspension that were making my car sound like a xebec whenever I turned a corner, and it makes for a spendy trip to the shop.

I'd be better off if I wasn't so keenly aware of things that aren't quite right on the car. Even more so if I could do the work myself.

You should've let me pay!

Now you're going to have to come down to New Haven and let us buy you sushi.

But the two have nothing to do with one another!

I won't turn you down for sushi, though. Nothing but good can come of that.

i can't help in any way but this: i love problem solving in the way of finding meals from what's in the cabinets. my dad was unemployed for a while, so i practiced then-- "what can i make from what's in the cabinets and the freezer?" lots of things, as it turns out. but i totally understand the poor thing. TOTALLY. i'm living off of beans and tomatoes (chili!) right now.

Things aren't dire, really. I still have a steady income, and I had enough ferreted away that I was able to cover the bill without having to resort to credit cards, and that's very good. It's just that I should keep an eye on my spending for the next couple of months so I can build up my savings again.

I kind of like beans and rice. I was singing about them this morning.

eggs and toast,
eggs and toast,
CHEESY CHEESY eggs aaand toast!

Unfortunately, I really can't say as I remember. I think I was doing the badger dance at the time. I do remember the song I was singing at the redorkening last night, which went something like:

It's a wurm
It's a wurm
It's a ZOM-BIE wurm!

Swamp Thing, baby!

Have you considered the Slaughterhouse Bouncer?
gatz From: gatz Date: September 22nd, 2006 12:12 am (UTC) (Link)
I haven't seen it. Sounds promising, tho. :) I actually do have a Turnkey (it's in my tractor-tuned demon/ogre deck). This Friday is payday, I was thinking getting a blue/black and a green/black deck and doing a deconstruct/smooshup of them and adding stuff from my supply I've been thinking of using.

There are two different treatments of the Dark Devotion deck in "Building on a Budget" on the M:tG website. They're a bit dated at this point (They were using the most recent cards available, so anything from Ravnica foreward isn't considered), but still worth checking out.

What we need to get you are O-Naginatas.

Ooooo... or Jagged Poppet or Mausoleum Turnkey?

Did you sing


Red beans and rice,
Red beans and rice,
uh-oh,
oh oh oh oh-oh-oh-oh-oh.


(I don't even know what the original song is because I've sung it this way for so long. I think it was sung by the Fixx?)
