I did not go to SLUT last night. Instead I selfishly chose to spend a night at home, something I have not done recently.

In the grand scheme of things my spending $2.39 for coffee using nothing but coins — eight quarters, three dimes, one nickel, and four pennies — will not change the world. However, for a brief moment it brought joy into my life.

    Greetings from Penn State!
    Its a very pretty campus.
    Went to a few places Allan used to frequent, will hit some more today before we head out to the campground.
    Met a few hashers again last night that we had met at interams, and Hedons.
    Pub crawl was fun.

    Prior to our (cancelled) trip, I took my spare change to the counting machine at the Publix. I had over $120!! It would have been more, but I use cash so little anymore, I rarely have change.

    I tried to go pick up my tractor parts from the dealer in Barnesville after work yesterday. The Google said they were open until 5:30, but I found the gates locked at 5:12. Pissed at not calling beforehand. Grrrrrr.

    Got the bill for my stay at the horse pistol. $95k with $71k worth of discounts. $24k bill of which I paid- $100. Wow.


    • Was “horse pistol” an intentional word play?

      I fear bills like that because I have an inkling they are in my future and, *at the moment*, I have good health insurance.

      The whole 95k with 71k worth of discounts, that so crazy.
      Just have a reasonable price in the first place.

      Not supposed to arrive st camp until 2pm, if we get there earlier I’m sure we will get put to work. I hear there’s 110 or so registered.
      Trail tonight at 5:30 & then dinner after.
      Tomorrow trail starts at 9:30am with a long bus ride.
      Rumor has it food will be amazingly good for a camp out.

    seriously made me smile

    Also coming here to share your PSA for the day. College football fan? The hall of fame downtown is free all month long if you have the Chick-fil-A app.

    That is all. Have happy weekends, ITP-readers!

    Eating ice cream at the Penn State creamery.
    You can major in ice cream (aka food science)
    Claim to fame…. Ben & Jerry learned all they know here.

    And bought a Penn State T-shirt. I broke my no new T-shirts rule.

    I know you hate coins Paulie so I’m sure you were excited to unload it as well. 🙂 I get excited as I use found quarters to pay for the majority of my Moonlight hashes (I’m sure Sani hates me…).

    College dairy stores are the best. Nebraska has a good one and Wisc-Mad has a very good one. Something about Land Grant universities and Ag programs. Surprised UGA doesn’t have one. Doubtful you will ever find fresher ice cream that you didn’t make yourself.
