Today has me thinking about battery power and seriously considering something like this $54 powerpack from Xantrex. Wouldn't it be great to run a little fridge or even watch laptop movies before bed? What if my car battery died in the winter? I could jump it with my 14lb portable battery set up and store it under the seat the rest of the time. Someone save me from my unnatural love of awesome gadgets! Well, it's on my wish list though probably not happening for quite a while.
After work yesterday I made a quick stop at Good Will. I wasn't looking for anything specific, but that's usually when I find the best stuff, and today was no exception. We will look back on July 13th as the day that started my love affair with men's boxers. I have a bone to pick with society: Why do men get to wear these awesome pattered under-drawers (peppers, rubber ducks, hamburgers, etc) while women wear totally uncomfortable lacy frilly things and the less material they have the more money they cost? I want trains on my underwear! Anyway... I got myself some awesome boxers with chili peppers and am making them into the world's most kick ass shorts. They were only $3 and way more comfy than jeans.
Wow, so that's Thursday thus far. It's cooler today than it has been in a while so this might be the time to remove that passenger seat/stop procrastinating.
The Uhaul place down the street has a beautiful box truck with 150,000 miles for $2,500 so I'm trying to find the money/justify the expense. The car works fine for my needs and right now that much space just seems like an unnecessary luxury. But I want it! Stay tuned for more Practicality vs. Wallet wars.
