So what to write about, you ask? Plans.
I like dreaming (cause dreaming can make you mine) and thinking about the future (but being careful not to live in it..for we all know here is now blah...blah...blah). On the short-term list of random things to do, here we go...
- Want to see The Black Swan - heard it was really good. And while we're on the subject of movies I also want to see Burlesque and Harry Potter 7.
- Need to download the iTunes app. I haven't update my iPod in almost a year and since I got my new laptop I've yet to download any songs.
- Car needs an oil change, new headlight (driving with "one headlight") and a couple of other things. I've been delaying because I'm sure this is all going to cost be a couple hundred dollars.
- Order firewood. We haven't ordered any yet this season and used up last season's second cord a couple of weeks ago. Yesterday we bought a couple of bundles at Home Depot and already used them up.
- Update my postcard database. I'm such a geek. Not only do I love collecting early 20th century postcards, I also love databases. With my new Office 2010 software I created an Access database and have already spent hours tweaking tables, creating forms and writing queries -- geek!!!!
- Finish my book. I've been reading it far too long (since Thanksgiving) for a quick read. It's really good and I only have 30 or so pages left it's just that they only time I have to read is before bed time and I fall right to sleep.
- Read this book, which I picked up at the used book store for $1.99.

- Become a coupon
queenking. Maximize savings like my fabulous buy last week using coupons and leveraging sales, I spent $.11 (yes, eleven cents) and got over $8 worth of food.
- Publish my novel. Been working on this one for awhile. I'm tired of talking about and am committed to just doing it.
- Become fabulously wealthy. My $7 (yes, seven dollars!) Mega-millions lottery winnings is a start.
- Create world peace. My $25 donation to the Salvation Army is a step in the right direction. Oh, and I threw in $.98 into a red bucket yesterday. You create your own kettle here. Or by simply throwing in some change into a red bucket in your own area.
