You might think that by living alone the condition of my house (regarding cleanliness) is always how I want it. Wrong! Over time I have obtained a bad habit of leaving things out, mostly on the floors. My house looks as if a bunch of five year olds have been living there for awhile. So today starts “Operation: Get The Shit Off The Floor”.
The M6’s trunk is filled with boxes that will be going to Goodwill today, which is conveniently located next to REI where I will attempt to purchase a bike rack, most likely the Yakima HoldUp 1.25″ (and hoping that this is the only hold up that gets associated with this car). Sure, it’s the most expensive model that Yakima makes, but as I prepare to turn fifty this year (yikes!) I have to start enjoying the money I’ve saved while I can. Am I right!?!?!
Did You Know There Is A Junior Joey?
Since I realized that I wasn’t going to be able to wait until after German class to eat last night I decided to suck it up and eat at Moe’s.
Side Note: As I learned while bowling on New Year’s Day the restaurant Shout! in Colony Square has closed. Non-ITP-Reader Karen (aka “Fill My Cavity”) works in Colony Square and told me that the owners were getting divorced and that the restaurant would be a casualty of this. Obviously she was correct.
Anyway, back to my meal.
As I think I’ve mentioned previously there are really only three dinner-time fast food options inside Colony Square — Moe’s, Tin Drum, and Chick-fil-A. While I’ve relaxed my stance at eating at Chick-fil-A it wasn’t what I was craving, and Tin Drum was going to be too many calories, so I settled on Moe’s. In an attempt to eat somewhat healthy (as one can be eating this type of food) I found that Moe’s offers smaller burritos, so I ordered the “Joey Jr” which is the smaller version of their “Joey Bag of Donuts”. Of course this came with a copious amount of chips, so I chose to drink water instead of soda with my meal to offset some calorie intake. You know what? The smaller version was perfectly sating.
The more you know…
One thing that didn’t change last night is my realization that I need to perform higher-quality studying of German. The A1.3 class is larger than the previous two courses I’ve taken at Goethe Zentrum so it’s up to me to be prepared because I won’t have the opportunity to ask as many questions.
Speaking Of Spending Money…
I just ordered all-weather floor mats and an all-weather trunk liner for the M6 from WeatherTech. A coworker of mine has these in his Honda Civic and really likes them. WeatherTech offers mats designed for specific models of automobiles and since I expect to be taking the M6 into muddy/dirty environs (camping, hashing, etc) I think they will preserve the interior for as long as I own the car.
Jeez, I think I should have titled this post “It’s Only Money…”
I’m going so crazy with the money spending I might start considering house repairs!
